At this time, we are still researching Calvin Tilden. We suspect that the Calvin Tilden who authored this letter was the son of Dr. Calvin Tilden of Hanson, Massachusetts. Dr. Calvin Tilden was a prominent citizen of Hanson and there is some reason to believe that he was related at least through marriage to the Cobb family; however, the author of this letter appears to be an attorney. Dr. Calvin Tilden had a son, Calvin Tilden, born 23 Dec 1805 and there is documentation that a Calvin Tilden, Jr. was admitted to the Bar in 1828. Death records from Hanson, Massachusetts indicate that Calvin Tilden Jr, Esq. died 22 November 1831 at 26 years of age. Dr. Tilden died 28 January 1832.
