I will send you more information later but hoped to get started with this. The family was from Luverne. The PERKINS/KELLEY(KELLY) connection was as follows; Annie Ethel KELLEY married Thomas PERKINS. Annie Ethel KELLEY's parents were Dewitt Kelley and Susan Owens KELLEY. We are trying to find out Dewitt Kelley's siblings names and parents names. His mother is a full blooded Cherokee who married an Irish man (KELLEY) I have a picture of Dewitt KELLEY and Susan O. KELLEY with Annie KELLEY as a child and Dewitt's brother and sister in law and their mother the Cherokee but don't know their names. I also have a picture of Annie KELLEY with her class mates in front of the Rutledge school. She was born in the late 1800's and looked to be a teen in the picture. How do I get this to you? Thanks for any help.
