About Samuel Kidder

He went to East Alstead, N. H., in 1772, and lived and died on the farm which he first settled on and cleared. Soon after his settlement his house was burned with most of its contents. He was Lieutenant in a company of Rangers in the old French war ; went to Quebec, but the city was taken before he arrived there. When he went to Alstead the place was a wilderness, with no roads, and nothing but marked trees to go by from place to place.
