    Notes 
    • W.T. Block, East Texas historian, wrote of Ann: "Kidd's daughter Ann Elizabeth married Columbus C. Caswell, a prominent Beaumont sawmiller, in 1866. Caswell died in 1883, but he left his young widow a sizeable estate, including a ten percent interest in the Texas Tram and Lumber Company of Beaumont and the Village Mill Company of Village, Hardin County. In 1902, these sawmills, which were two of East Texas' largest, were sold to the Kirby Lumber Corporation, a transaction which left the widow financially secure for life."
