Robert Nelson Kidd JR was the first cousin of Pamelia Kidd. She was the daughter of Robert Nelson Kidd SR - who was the uncle of Robert Nelson Kidd JR. I think the Jr/Sr designation was given by the family as a way of distinguishing the two rather than the usual father/son relationship. The Robert Nelson Kidd Jr. cemetery is just northeast of Lovingston Va on the site of the homestead. Pamelia married Richard Andrew White. Robert Nelson JR had eleven (or so - the number varies) daughters. One of his daughters - Arnetta (Etta) married David Monroe (Toby) White, son of Pamelia and Richard - David and Etta were second cousins. Another daughter, Francis (Mittie) Kidd married Charles William Simpson, the son of an English immigrant. My parents were the grandchildren of David and Etta and Mittie and William - therefore they were second cousins as well. There are several John Kidd's. I can try to trace yours if you have a little more info on him.
There is another interesting "circle" in the family. Charles William Simpson married Mittie Kidd. Mittie's sister Ella Kidd married Henry Spencer, Henry's sister Virginia married Frank Simpson, brother of Charles William. The circle remains "unbroken" in Nelson County!!!
