Samuel Holmes Tidd, brother-in-law of my ancestor James. Sam married his sister, Rebecca Hill.

Samuel’s father was Martin Tidd. His sister Sarah Tidd was James Hill’s wife and mother of eight children who lived to adulthood. Samuel married a woman named Rebecca Hill.

Not much is known about Rebecca. I wasn’t sure if she was related when I first began researching the family tree.

Then, I became convinced that she was either a sister or daughter of James. James likely married a woman named Mary Jordan and had four daughters before marrying Sarah Tidd. Hence, my thinking that she could be a daughter.

However, a bio of Samuel Tidd confirms that Rebecca and James were brother and sister. Hopefully this will help in tracking down their parents, who have been stubbornly elusive.
