Lottie, a daughter of George Wellington and Susan Cox Kidd, was the youngest daughter of five siblings all born in Kansas. The oldest, Alice M born 1885; Floyd F born 1887; Clayton "Clyde" born 1888; and William "Bill" George born 1895. The children were raised and educated in Clay County, Kansas until 1900 when the family moved to LaSalle County, Illinois to assist grandfather George Kidd with the family farm.
She attended school and graduated from the eighth grade. At age 12 Lottie worked and lived with nearby neighbors who needed help with chores. She saved her money and bought her own bicycle.
Lottie's father was an alcoholic and a mean drunk. When her mother Susan would find him drunk in the room with no windows, she would lock and bar that door until he was sober. George was also known to hide money in unusual places around the farm, but even he would forget where. He died September 2, 1907, an answer to wife Susan's prayers.
On February 24, 1908 Lottie married Abel Anthony, her best friend Nellie's uncle, and returned to Clay County, Kansas with him.
See Abel's site for more family information.
