      Kesiah Kidd (Nee Roberts) was born in Loundon County, Virginia May 30, 1796 and Passed away May 12, 1889 in Jackson County, Virginia, was buried at Stanleyville Cemetery Ohio where quite a number of her relatives are buried. She came to this county in 1808 and remained the greater part of her life. She was married to Amos Kidd in 1813 by Squire White, Justice of the Peace in Fearing Township, Ohio. She was the mother of 10 children. She had at the time of her death 33 grandchildren and 71 Great grandchildren. She was a member of the Baptist Church about 50 yeaars-Living a faithful christian life.

      Jane Kidd's DC names Parents as Amos Kidd and Kizziah Six. Statement made by Jane before her death in 1917 says her mother's maiden name Kizziah Roberts who married a Mr. Six who died. There are Roberts and Six men serving in Nathaniel Kidd's Company and living in Greene Twsh.Washington County, during the Revolutionary War. Her father was Amos son of Nathaniel, but marriage records from Washington, County, Ohio in 1817 shows Kizziah Roberts marrying Isaac Kidd Amos's brother. It appears the clerk made a mistake, as in the 1850 Census for LibertyTwsh, Washington County, Ohio page 579, line 23 Jane is living in the household of Amos and Keziah. Isaac has a wife Mary, no Jane in HH, ( household) living in Feaaring Twsh, page 623/3 Ln 9. The 1880 Census published for Jackson Co, W Virginia, MARCH, 1989 page 122 shows Household of Amos and Keziah. Taken from application approved by the DAR.# 770941 Accepted on April 13, 1996
