I am looking for any informaton on Walter Kidwell who was born in MD (supposedly from Prince George's Co but not confirmed) in 1776. He then moved to Fairfax Co., VA where he married a Catherine _______. They married before 1806. At least 4-5 kids were born in Fairfax: John b. 1806, Daniel b. 1807, Mary Ann b. 1810, James b. 1811, and Leannah b. 1820. This family also shows up in the 1820 & 1830 Wesley Twp., Washington Co., OH census. In 1840 & 1850 they resided in Barlow Twp., Washington Co., OH. From 1860 until death they lived in Fairfield Twp., Washington Co., OH. They are mostly buried in Layman Cemetery, Fairfield Twp., Washington Co., OH. I cannot find Walter in 1810 anywhere. I'm thinking the name must be mispelt or something. This couple had 13 kids.

Any marriage information and birth information on the kids would be greatly appreciated. Any information on where exactly they were living in Fairfax would help.
