      Some data from Aaron Hill mrmayor at hotmail.com

      Martin TIDD, Sr. was involved in the Connecticut-Pennsylvania land controversy, participating in the Battle of Wyoming. In April 1770, He was implicated in the murder of Capt. Amos OGDEN, but testified with others that a John MURPHY (also spelle d MURPHEE) was the killer. Later in 1784, although not included in the original indictments, he was arrested and charged with conspriacy. In his deposition to the court, he successfully argued that since the matter of land ownership was still be ing debated and decided by the Pennsylvania authorities and the Continental Congress, he should not be detained nor hindered from his property. He served as a private with Robinson's Rangers during the American War for Independence. For more inf ormation see citations from The Susquehanna Company Papers.
