Wow the book was put togther for, or by John Caldwell Tidball from researching his family mostly thru his father William who was sick or dieing at the time. The book has a reference to the first United States Tidball. A Thomas Tidball. The manuscript says that "He cam from som port in the Bristol Sea"
As of yet no-one has found a record of where Thomas was born. Some of the book is in a national archive I think in Maryland? or somewhere out east in a preserved area. This item may be very rare if it is an original part of the manuscript.
