101 Buried at Greenock Presbyterian Cemetery. Headstone no longer upright. MCQUOID, CHARLES (I2399)
 
102 Called Crandall, he was named in honor of the long-serving first Baptist minister at New Canaan, Joseph Crandall, and would appear to be the first of many Ryder's who were given surnames of local note worthies as Christian middle names.

He married New Canaan NB 1 Nov 1837 Esther Rider.

Crandall farmed at lot 27 New Canaan and owned two tracts of land, lot 39 in Salisbury and lot 27 in Studholm (now Havelock Parish). He is listed on the Muster Rolls of Capt Keith's Company September 28 1846. He wrote his Will 6 April 1849 when "weak in body but of sound mind and memory," naming Reuben Rider his executor, who declined to serve. He devised the western half of lot 39 to "Joseph Rider, son of Ebenezer Rider, deceased"; he gave Norman the eastern half of lot 39 and Eastman lot 27; he gave his daughter Levina 25, and his father Ebenezer "the sum of 1 per year during his natural life," and Esther "a good comfortable living out of the last described pieces of land."

Although Crandall seems to have been ill some time before his death, the story of his demise has taken on heroic proportions. Crandall was said to be a man of great strength. One day he was working on the covered bridge in Canaan, and the support gave way just as a funeral was passing. Crandall held up the bridge with his back until the cortege passed, but died later that night of internal injuries. In any event, he died 15 April 1849, aged only 35.

Crandall's wife, Esther, became Reuben Rider's second wife [see Fam#11].

A newspaper article in 1988 reported, "Twenty-five years ago Charlie and his wife Marg started selling novelties retail in the building that was next to the one he now owns. He also included some work clothing in his initial selection. A year later in 1964, Charlie was able to buy the larger building he now owns. Charlie says, "we were always trying to find what customers wanted. For a while we were known for our generous ice cream cones, then it was the french fries. Now we concentrate on more hardware items."

112 Children: No Descendants

[Picture of Norman's headstone]
Norman's gravestone is prominent in the first North River Baptist Cemetery in Wheaton Settlement New Brunswick.

By his father's will, Norman inherited the east half of lot 39 in New Canaan, and he presumably inherited lot 27 when his brother Eastman died. In the early 1860s, Norman sold these properties and moved to Wheaton Settlement NB, some fifteen miles east of New Canaan, where he purchased and operated a sawmill.

On Feb 11 1871 the Albert Baptist Church was formed at Fredericton Road, and "Mr. and Mrs. Norman Ryder" were founding members, and "Norman Ryder and Nathan Ryder were chosen deacons and Chipman, clerk."

Norman had no children of his own, but he served as foster parent for Mark and Unity Ryder (see Fams#34,35), his halfbrother and sister, and for Norman and Henrietta Sutherland (see Fams#75, 76), orphaned children of his sister Levina.

Norman was killed, it is said, by an accident at the sawmill, when a load of logs fell on him. He was only 36 years of age. He is buried in the cemetery of the First North River Baptist Church in Wheaton Settlement. His headstone is prominent there, and reads, "Norman Ryder/ April 5, 1875."

Norman's wife Permelia outlived him by more than 50 years. She married (2) Alexander Ryder, Fam#61, below.
