DEATH OF MR. J. E. KIDD.
We take from the "Molong Express" of
Saturday week, the following account of
the death of a brother of Mr. George Kidd,
of Windsor:—
Yet another of the old residents of this
district has gone to his eternal rest, in the
person of Mr. John Edward Kidd, who
passed away at Cudal on Saturday last, at
the age of 86 years. He was possessed of
an iron constitution, and was in robust
health, which enabled him to swing a heavy
hammer at his trade as a blacksmith, till
he attained the advanced age, for such a
feat, of 82 years. From that time up till
about two months ago deceased enjoyed
fairly good health, and his illness at first
was not severe enough to compel him to
remain constantly in bed till about a week
before death occurred. The immediate
cause of death was heart failure, superven-
ing upon senile decay. During his illness
he received all the attention and medical
skill a loving family could provide, and thus
his last days were spent as comfortably as
possible. He passed away peacefully in the
presence of his attentive nurse and daugh-
ter, Mrs. Wood, and his grandchild, Mrs.
H. Dean. All the members of his family
visited him during his last hours. A native
of England, the deceased gentleman arrived
in Australia when four years of age, with
his parents, who settled down at Richmond,
Hawkesbury River. He was apprenticed as
a blacksmith to Mr. W. Biddle at Rich-
mond, and subsequently he became the
chief smith in the forge of the late Andrew
Town, who was noted in the Hawkesbury
district as the owner of the famous sires,
Grand Flaneur, Tarragon, Tim Whiffler,
Childe Harold, Maribyrnong, Cheviot, and
King Tom. In due course deceased was at-
tracted by gold discoveries to The Ovens
diggings, and later, about 40 years ago, he
arrived at Manildra, and engaged in his
trade there. While at Manildra he exe-
cuted all the pile shoeing for the traffic-
bridge. Deceased next returned to Rich-
mond for a short period, and then removed
to Cudal, about 32 years ago settling down
there at his trade, with his son Jack. He
continued in that business actively till about
four years before his death, when he re-
tired, and resided with his daughter, Mrs.
W. Wood. Deceased married Miss Mary
Ann Matthews, of Prospect, who prede-
ceased him about 37 years ago. The issue
of the marriage was a family of 16, seven
of whom are still living, viz.: Mesdames T.
Barrett (Nyngan), W. King (Canbelego)
and W. Wood (Cudal), Messrs. Harry
(Bumberry), John (Cudal), George (Orange)
and Richard Kidd (Mendooran). Deceased
had 30 grandchildren. His youngest brother,
Mr. G. J. C. Kidd, is a resident of Wind-
sor. The late Mr. Kidd was of a quiet and
retiring disposition, and did not take an
active part in public affairs; but he had a
wide circle of friends, who were deeply at-
tached to him and appreciated his many
good qualities. His character was above
reproach, and the Cudal district is the
poorer by his demise. He was fondly loved
by his family, being an indulgent father and
faithful friend.
