Notes for Isaac Kidd
His death certificate records Isaac Kidd, age 71, born 26 Aug 1877 in Elliott Co., Ky, died 17 Apr 1949 in Morehead, Rowan Co., Ky, married, occupation clay miner, father Pet Kidd, mother’s maiden name Sal Ann Williams, cause of death chronic myocarditis, informant Myrtle Kidd, burial in White Cemetery.
His obituary in the Rowan County News of Thu., May 5, 1949, says "Services for Isaac Kidd, 72, of Elliott Co. were held Saturday at the Kidd home. Rev. Jess Petitt & Rev. Fraley conducted the services and burial was in the White Cemetery. Survivors included his wife, Myrtle Kidd, two sons Lee and Allen, and two daughters, Laura Slusher and Ida Smith, all of Christy.”
(Jesse Petitt wasn't really a preacher. He probably just helped conduct the services, and the obituary writer assumed that meant he was a minister.)

(Ancestry indexes this as Gordon Cold, because the handwriting constructs an x from two back-to-back curls that don’t quite touch.)
