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.
