·  Name: JOSEPH KIDD 1

·  Sex: M

·  Birth: ABT 1823 in Monart Parish, County Wexford, Ireland 2

·  Death: 27 JAN 1891 in Lakewood, Cuyahoga County, Ohio 3

·  Note:

Joseph held in tenancy about 65 acres of land (total valuation of land and buildings 28 pounds, 10 shillings) in Aughathlappa, Monart Parish, Barony of Scarwalsh, County Wexford in 1853 (From Griffiths Valuation of 1850, p. 114, courtesy Leslie Boxwell). According to baptism records in the Killane Register, Joseph was "of Cairn" in 1860. Based on ship manifest records (James Kidd Email of March 2, 2004), the family came from Liverpool, England on the City of Washington and arrived in New York on November 27, 1866. The manifest lists Joseph as James. Whether James is an alternative (or middle) name for Joseph, or is a relative coming over with the family after Joseph had already arrived is an open quesiton, though the fact that there was no James Kidd living in Ohio who was in the age range of 41 to 60 at the time of the 1870 census suggests that 'James' is 'Joseph.'

Joseph and his family were living in Rockport Township at the time of the 1870 census and apparently lived there from about 1865 to 1891. At his death (of typhoid pneumonia) Joseph was living at 289 Viaduct in Cleveland.

Joseph (listed as James in the passenger list) and his family arrived in New York on November 27, 1866, on the "C of Washington". It departed from Liverpool, England.
