Some years after the appearance of Frederic Kidder's book, the Rev. Corbin Kidder becoming strongly interested in the work, prepared a genealogy of a portion of his own branch of the family, which was published in 1876, by his son, Rev. Samuel T. Kidder, now of Fond Du Lac, Wis. This pamphlet contained most of the matter included in the first twenty pages of this book, and the genealogy of his own immediate branch of the family, making in all 32 pages. In 1877, Miss S. B. Kidder, of Boston, commenced copy ing all the original papers in the possession of Mr. Frederic Kidder, and in 1879 had blank letters of inquiry printed.
