William Kidnea, late a private of Co. B, 9th Regt, Pennsylvania National Guard died yesterday. He enlisted at the breaking out of the Spanish-American War, went to Chickamauga and suffered physically with others of the regiment. After returning home he was taken with locomotor ataxia and had been an invalid until this time. He was born in Wilkes-Barre on March 31, 1861. He followed railroading most all his life as a brakeman on the Central R.R. and also worked in the Ashley shops as a blacksmith’s helper. The remains will be buried from the home of his mother, 50 Oregon Street, on Thursday afternoon at 2 o’clock, with interment in the City Cemetery. The family would be pleased if the pall bearers could be from his regiment. His patriotism was of the staunchest kind and he only regretted that he never was permitted to see San Juan Hill or the Philippines. He leaves his wife and three children, two of them being at the Chester Springs Home. source: Wilkes-Barre Record

His father, Daniel, is buried in the next plot #545
