The email address of the person who posted this is no longer valid. I am a 3x grt-granddaughter of George Kidd and his wife Mary McKillip, aka McCaleb. Tandy is a brother to my grt-great grandfather, Newton Gaston Kidd. The only information I have on Tandy is the following:
Research through the site: US Civil War Soldiers, 1861-1865, shows Tandy Kidd, Union side, Regiment 14th KY Cavalry, Company E, Private. I do believe he is also listed as "Sandy"; the way a person wrote the letter "T", must have looked like an "S". the other copy of a document I have is from Owsley Co, KY, dated 25 March 1879. His widow, Elizabeth E Kidd, now Elizabeth Lee, is applying for widow's pension. This is witnessed by two women who state that they knew Elizabeth was married to Tandy Kidd at the time that she gave birth to a girl, Emily Kidd on 15 December 1861. I do not know when Tandy died, but I have a paper that states he died of consumption.
I wonder if the other Tandy is a brother to George. Do you know the parents of George Kidd and his wife, Mary McKillip? any information you can give would be very much appreciated.
