My name is Carolyn Flanders McPherson and my fifth great-grandfather also was Samuel Teed/Tidd/ b.1720, d. 1804, with his last residence in Digby, NS. The interesting this about this--to me, at any rate--is that I fell in love with Digby in 2002, and have been back four times since. It wasn't until about two years ago I discovered that I was descended from founders in this area.
I evidently have some errors in my tree because I seem to have two many Samuels in this branch of the family. If you are available I wonder if I could send you the list of Samuel Tidd/Teed's children, in case some extra marriage or child is throwing my correct tree off.
In all events, my very best wishes to you, Cousin Sandy.
Carolyn McPherson of Charlottesville VA; my maiden name is Carolyn Flanders Hickok.
