EMILY KIDDER - 1837 - 1885

Emily Kidder is a fascinating forebear of the "Chamberlin Cousins", partly because of what is not know, but also because of her protr4ait, in the possession of Ethel Schryer Merkley (at time of writing). The red hair has come down at least to my generation (Maimie Brown!)
Her father was Leonard Kidder (b. 1813, d. 18??), son of Richard and Martha (-) Kidder. Her mother was Margaret Arnaud (also known as Renaud). They were married in 1832: witnesses were Albert Kidder, Leonard's brother, and Julia Arnaud, Margaret's sister. From the census of 1851, it appears that Albert married Julia, that Richard and Martha, Albert and Leonard were all born in U.S., and that the Arnaud sisters were born in Canada, East.
Leonard and Margaret Kidder had five children, of which Emily was the third, and the first of three girls (based on the 1851 census - there may have been others who died in infancy). Margaret died some time between 1844 and 1847, when Leonard married (second) Ann Philbin, on Oct. 15th. The same census shows Emily Kidder, aged 14, "adopted (with t. Parker)". Did she the eldest daughter, not get along with her step-mother, or was there some other reason - perhaps over-crowding with the arrival of two half-sisters?
S.S. Strong married Emily to George Washington Chamberlin in Christ Church Anglican, Bytown, on June 8th, 1853. (He spelled her name Emilia, but she signed Emily.) G.W.C. died in 1879, and Emily married the widowed father of her daughter-in-law, Adelaide Andrews (Mrs. James Er Chamberlin), the moved to Colorado, and it was there that Emily died as a result of a runaway team of horses. Emily died as a result of an accident. She was thrown from a runaway buggy and
hit her head on a tethering stone. She died a few days later.
The Kidders lived in Eardley, up the Ottawa from Aylmer. What part of the States did they come from? The Arnaud's were said to have been Huguenots from Belgium (or France). Who were Margaret's parents and where did they come from? This is family history just asking to be researched.

Obituary - Aylmer Times Newspaper
Our readers will regret to learn of the death in Bessemer City, Colorado on the 8th instant, of Mrs. Henry Andrews. The deceased lady was well known in this locality, being for many years a resident among us. She was the mother of Mr. J. C. Chamberlin. Mr. Henry Andrews being her second husband. Her death was unexpected news to her friends in Canada who were not aware of her condition until she was past recovery, that she had been thrown out of a buggy, breaking her collar bone, several ribs and recieving a fracture of the skull which caused her death. The remains were brought to Ottawa on Monday evening and on Tuesday afternoon all that was mortal was laid in the Aylmer Road Cemetery. The deceased lady has left several children to mourn her untimely end to which the heart felt sympathy of the whole community is extended.

Know all men by these presents, that I, Amory P. Wright of Washington, in the County of Sullivan and State of New Hampshire am held and firmly bound to Charles Wright and Polly Wright, of the same Washington, my respected parents, in the sum of three thousand dollars to be paid to said Charles and Polly Wright, to the payment whereof I bind myself and my heirs firmly by these presents sealed with my seal and dated the 16th day of November A.D. 1870.
The condition of this obligation is such that if I, said Amory P. Wright, shall at all times during the natural lives of said Charles and Polly suitably support and maintain them and provide them with suitable food, drink, clothes, nursing, medicine and all other things suitable and necessary, in the house of said Amory P. Wright, and shall in all respects treat them filially and kindly, and shall give them a decent, Christian burial at their decease and erect suitable gravestones at their graves, then this obligation shall be void.

Signed, sealed and delivered....Amory P. Wright

22 "Frederick White of the staff of the Department of Justice efficiently handled a large part of the clerical groundwork in connection with the organization (of the N.W.M.P.). Coming to Canada from England, while still in his teens, he had worked for several years in the offices of the Grand Trunk Railway at Montreal, and was destined to round out 45 years in the service of the Canadian Government.
Fred White, as he became familiarly known throughout the Force, became a clerk, first in the Department of Justice and later in the office of the North-West Mounted Police of the Department of Secretary of State (Aug.21, 1876) after the administration of the Force had been transferred to that department. In 1878 he attained the rank of chief clerk. Possessed of a warm and friendly, yet with a highly efficient, personality, he soon got on a "first-name" basis. In 1880 he became Sir John A. MacDonald's private secretary and on July 1st of that year, was appointed "Comptroller General" of the Force, in addition to his post as Chief Clerk. In 1883 he became a deputy minister. He received a military training, reaching the rank of Captain in the Govenor Generals Foot Guards. In 1901, upon the organization of the overseas contingents for South Africa (Boer War), he received the rank of honoury Lieutenant-Colonel for his valuble services, and in 1902 was created a Companion of the Order of St. Michael and St. George. Much of the credit due the N.W.M.P. in it's formative years, and subsequently could be attributed to Lietenant-Colonel White. As Comptroller, he held that responsible office for 24 years, involving governorship of the unorganized North-West."

23 "Harold Ellsworth Wright took control of Wright Trucking when he was 20, after his father died. According to Richard Wright, Harold moved the company ten years later, in 1943, to Lowell. He acquired Lowell Trucking in 1958 and Dana Trucking in 1963. According to Harold Wright, they were shipping cloth from all over New England to the Quarter Master's Depot in Philadelphia for the military. In 1976, Wright Trucking was sold to Arrow Freight Lines. As well as the trucking business, Harold E. Wright, was assistant fire chief in town for several years before taking the job of chief in 1946 which he held for only 1 year."

24 "He was a locomotive engineer on the Boston and Maine Railroad noted for his skill and efficiency. He finally retired and went into partnership with Sherman H. Fletcher in running the store now known as the Wright and Fletcher Store. Nahum was town treasurer from 1887-1909.

25 "Joseph's next child was Asa, b. 1767. For some reason, Asa must have come upon hard times as his wife, Betsey (Patch) Wright died in 1846 as a pauper. Asa and Betsey's grandson named Arthur who was married to Sophronia was living here at 20 Depot Street in 1865 with their son Walter Cummings Wright. But by 1870, they had built the property at 11 N. Main Street Graniteville."
"Arthur Wright, built the house at 11 North Main about 1870."
"Arthur was one of the original trustees of the Methodist Episcopal Church in Graniteville. He had been a carpenter at Charles G. Sargent's Shop. In the store in Graniteville called Wright and Bemis, Arthur Wright was the partner, with Henry Bemis, on Broadway at 2nd St. selling groceries, dry goods &c. for 30 years. He had filled many public positions in Westford."

"Walter, who had married Meda Malvina Sargent, was bookkeeper for Wright & Bemis store and postmaster of Graniteville and in 1897 was listed as tax collector. In Meda Wright's obit it refers to "missing her smiling face from the post office, where she assisted her husband in such an able manner, and the vacant chair at the church suppers, where she was always a central figure, will be a sad reminder of her pleasing personality and usefulness in the village and it will be a long time before her many friends can begin to realize that Mrs. Wright is gone." Probably she was not the official, federally appointed postmistress, but she certainly worked in the post office in Graniteville."

27 "Leonard Wheeler speaks of Jacob's son, Edward and the fire which totally destroyed the property on 5 Dec. 1891: "Another fire was the Wright house where the library now stands. Ed Wright lived alone there and was in the house during the fire. He probably, as he was apt to do, started for the shed with a lighted lamp and fell into a fit which he was known to have, thus setting the house afire." Our town library now occupies the site of that house."

29 "The sad part of the story is that after the death of Esther Olmstead
Nelson in 1874, Gilbert Nelson remarried. The children's stepmother alienated a number of the children who left the homestead as soon as possible.
According to the census of 1891, Gilbert and Sarah were occupying the
family homestead alone with two hired hands. Period. I have not been able to locate "Sarah's" last name. It is a legend in our family that Esther Olmstead Nelson was a model irreplaceable mother. Poor Sarah! She didn't have a chance."

35 ("Woburn Record of Marriages")
A daughter of James and Elizabeth Wright, and a sister to Elizabeth Wright and Mary Wright, each of whom married a Kittredge. There were younger sisters , Ruth, born about 1723, and Rachel, born about 1733, and brothers, James, Joseph, Thomas and Nathaniel.
On the decease of the father in 1735, all the real estate subject to the widow's dower was set off to the third son Thomas.
John Holt & his wife Sarah , about 1748 or earlier, were the owners of what is now known as the Reuel Carter homestead on Main street in North Woburn, near the Wilmington line.
In 1749 Holt and his wife conveyed it to James Sawyer, "Leather Dresser" and bounded it south by land of Daniel Fisk, east on land of Dea. Josiah Wright, deceased, north on land of Giles Alexander, and west on the road.
Sawyer became an inn holder, and mortgaged the property to Harvard College, by whom it was assigned to Giles Alexander. The latter apparently foreclosed the mortgage, and in 1752 conveyed it to William Jay Jr.
