Frances was born to John W Kidwell. Her death certificate gives her Mother's name as Mary Saylor. It gives her age at time of death as 51 years and 17 days which would put her birthdate as June 28, 1854. It had been believed that Frances was the child of John W Kidwell from a marriage before his to Mary Ann Saylor as John & Mary had a marriage of 1855 about 10 months after Frances was born. There has not been another marriage found for John so it is possible he was only married to Mary but they simply did marry until after Frances was born and therefore also possible that Mary Ann Saylor is indeed the Mother of Frances. Wife of George William Swain. She was my Great Grandmother.
