My father is Carl David Tidmore, a wonderful musician (like me!:)) and a barber who lives with my stepmother Sharon Tidmore in Valliant, Oklahoma.  His parents, my Grandmother Maybelle was married to his father William Tidmore until he died, they had 9 children together, then after William died she married his brother Jasper, who also had 9 children by prior marriages.  Jasper and Maybelle had three more children together, bringing the total in the family to 21.  At one time I believe that Sarah Goswick was also married to Jasper Newton Tidmore, who is to me, my step grandfather and great uncle, my fathers uncle and step father, many of my aunts and uncles besides brother and sister, half brother and sister, were also first cousins to each other through accident of marriage after William died.  Maybelle died when I was around 6, you can read about what I remember of that and of the whole family being together at http://sites.netscape.net/michelletidmore/ONE_MORE_TIME_AROUND.html

Myself I am now 44 with 4 grandchildren of my own, and it seems as though it were only yesterday......

Thank you Michelle.  I am sure others will be interested in the information you can supply of the Tidmore lineage.
