Mary Greenlaw - 1797 - New Brunswick

Last night I received information that my ancestor Calvin KIDDER (1765-1799) had married a MARY GREENLAW in St. Andrews, NB, in 1797. We have been searching for this lady's name for 8 years. While searching for information on this surname last night, I discovered that there were GREENLAW families in Princeton, Maine, and surrounding towns in the late 1700's/early l800's, and also in New Brunswick. ... Calvin Kidder seems to have had ties to Princeton, ME, as his grandchildren ended up having farms in that town. .... I would very much like to know if Mary Greenlaw who married in July 1797 was from a MAINE family or from a NEW BRUNSWICK famiy. ... Calvin and Mary (Greenlaw) Kidder had a son born to them in January 1799 in St. Stephen, NB. And, Calvin was part owner of a Harmony Sawmill in St. Stephen, NB. He was killed in a boating accident in February 1799. ... I have no idea what happened to his widow, Mrs. Mary Kidder, but I know that a Mrs. Mary Kidder died in 1819 in Portland, Maine. ... However, their son, "Calvin" Kidder, seemed to remain tied to St. Stephen, NB. (But, I'm not positive of that.) "Calvin" Kidder, the son, married Mary Wilkins of Amity, Maine, in 1834, and they lived in Calais, ME.
