Hi Sherry, Francis Vidal, the Cincinnati cooper is the 3x great grandfather of my husband who descends through Francis' daughter Anne. She married James Wilmot and they came to Cincinnati from NYC around 1856. I have Francis' will and a very brief death notice from the Cincinnati Daily Times which gives little information except the death date and his age (61). Don't know where he is buried, if there was any church affiliation nor his wife's maiden name. She is referred to as Ann(a) or Margaret. I know there was a son Francis (Frank) who was also a cooper. Would be happy to learn more.Please see my reply to Peggy regarding his parentage. His age suggests that he is the son of Paul Vidal & Elizabeth Van Gorden of NYC. Betty
