Rev. Thomas Kidd,Moniaive, Dumfries Shire, Scotland

Thomas Kidd appears in the 1901 census. The listing indicates he was b 1847 Dunbar, Haddington Shire. He is a minister with UP church. I believe he was ordained October 31, 1871 at Moniaive. His wife Marion age 46 was born in the US but is listed as a British subject. There children are Janet age 20, Margaret B. age 21, James D. age 17, and Marion B. age 13, all born in Moniaive.

The 1891 census has the same list except for ages.

I could not find Thomas and his wife Marion in the 1881 census, however, daughters Janet Kidd age 3, and Margaret Beck Kidd age 1 are listed with their grandmother Janet Beck age 62 born Closeburn, Dumfries Shire in 1819 and Elizabeth Johnson age 42, born Penpont. I believe Janet Beck's maiden name was Johnston.

Janet Beck and her husband John Beck are listed in the 1871 census along with daughter Marion Beck, brother-in-law William Johnston age 57, and nephew William McLachlan age 20.

Would love to hear from anyone that has information on these families.
