My 'most wanted KELLY' has been eluding me for abt 20 yrs. now & has me completely *stumped* & against a solid brick wall.  I have him in Quebec, Canada from ca 1854 >>>> but can find NO ancestral info re him.

   James KELLY s/o ??? - b ca 1830 ?? (one Can. census tells me b Ireland, another says b Can.)
      +  Margaret LEAVY/LEVEY et al - b ca 1833 +/- (Can. census' read the same as for James).
              d 22 July 1873 - St-Jean Chrysostome, Chateauguay, Quebec, Can.
    m  ca 1854 - (census' read the same as for b dates)
 Children: (all b/bapt. St-Jean Chrysostome, Chat., Quebec, Can.):
                Mary - b 11 Feb. 1855
                William James - b 2 August 1856
                Lawrence - (my GrFather) - b 2 October 1857 (surname shown as O'KELLY from 1876 >>>>)
                   + Caroline POWER
                Mary Julia - b 31 May 1859
                Caroline Augusta - b 19 February 1861
                Patrick James  - b 2 August 1863
                Julia Marie - b 2 May 1865
                   +  Alfred LESSOR
                Rosa Ellen - b 6 November 1867
                   +  Hormidas MONIERE
-----------------
I have a:  Lawrence KELLY & wife Mary McMANUS living, ca 1830, in immediate area of my James who *might possibly* be parents of James but cannot get any farther re this couple either.  They had daughter  - Anne b April 1830.
---------------
I have extensive LEAVY info that I *think* are connected to my Margaret LEAVY but, again, cannot make the definite connection.  The name is connected to surnames:  FARRELL/HICKEY/POWER/KELLY (Elizabeth)GARVEY/GORMAN & more.  The FARRELL/HICKEY people originated in Edgeworthstown, Co. Longford
ca 1800 >>>>>>>>>>>
---------------
I am quite desperate to find someone/something of help as the KELLY/O'KELLY et al surname has been my primary line of interest for 20 yrs now & am still going nowhere in my research.
My sincere thanks, in advance, for any help.

Subject: Re: [Irish-Canadian] Obtaining death records

 Hello Donna & List:

 I recently acquired a copy of my G-G-Grandfather's [Thomas Francis Kelly's]
 Death Record from the L. D. S. Family History Center as follows: Deaths (V.
 E-G) 1891; Family History Library US/CAN  Film # 1853538.

 Under Schedule C. -- Deaths; County of Peterborough; Division of Belmont; I
 discovered the following:

 Name and Surname of Deceased...   Thomas  Francis Kelly

 When Died...                                    28, April, 1891

 Sex -- Male or Female...                    Male

 Age...                                               92

 Rank or Profession...                         Farmer   [A Stamped # 013178
 appears on
                                                                       this
 line]

 Where Born...                                   Ireland

 Certified Cause of Death and
 Duration of Illness...                           Inflammation of Prostrate
 Glands & old age
                                                         3 days.

 Name of Physician, if any...                W. H. Jeffs  M. D.

 Signature Description and
 Residence of Informant...                     John W. Grace

 When Registered...                              30, June, 1891

 Religious Denomination of
 Deceased...                                         E.

 Signature of Registrar...                         Porter Preston

 My question(s) are as follows:

 1. Are there any other Canadian Death Records besides this one?  If so, what
 are they and where might I find them?

 2. Also, what does the stamped number...013178 mean and what does it refer
 to? 

 3. Is this all of the information provided for a death in 1891 in Canada.  If
 not, what other death information might there be?

 It should be noted that Thomas Francis Kelly died in Peterborough County;
 Belmont Township, according to this death record.  However, he is buried in
 Burritts Rapids Christ Church Anglican Cemetery which is located in
 Oxford-On-Rideau Township, Grenville County, Ontario.  His gravemarker's
 transcription reads as follows:  "Thomas Kelly...Died...28 April, 1891 at age
 90 years.  I have also located him on the Ontario Census of 1871 in Burritts
 Rapids.  As you can see there is a discrepancy of two (2) years between the
 gravemarker (90 years of age) and the death record (92 years of age). 

 Furthermore, Grenville County is not in close proximity to Peterborough
 County and I am wondering what the connection may be between these two places
 in relationship to my G-G-Grandfather. 

 My G-Grandfather's [James Kelly's] death certificate from Kansas lists Thomas
 Francis Kelly as his father.   James Kelly was born on 09, September, 1838 in
 Burritt's Rapids and I have placed him on the 1861 census [Approximate age
 23] as residing with his father Thomas KELLY in Burritts Rapids.  My
 G-Grandfather [James Kelly] eventually moved to Blenheim, Harwich Township, 
 Kent County, Ontario, where my Grandfather [Nathan Tompkins Kelly] was born
 on 24, August, 1867.

 My G-Grandfather, James Kelly, and Grandfather, Luther Tompkins Kelly {at age
 14}
 and their family immigrated to the United States where they became
 naturalized citizens in 1879.

 I am totally unaware of who Thomas Francis KELLY's parents or siblings were
 and I am attempting to gather enough information to discover where he came
 from in Ireland.  Can anyone give me some advice on where to discover such
 information?  Would any of this information be contained in some type of
 death record on Thomas Francis KELLY?

 Thanks.

Hello Listers:

I have not posted in a while & have decided to try again. I am searching for

any KELLY ancestors/descendants or researchers who are looking for the same

surname from about 1828 to 1891 in the Kent & Grenville County areas.

My BRICK WALL is Thomas Francis KELLY. He is buried in Burritts

Rapids;Oxford-On-Rideau Township; Grenville County; Christ Church Anglican

Church Cemetery. Thomas KELLY died in Peterborough County; Belmont Township

on 28 April 1891 at the reported age of 1892, according to his death record.

His tombstone lists him as having died on 28 April 1891 at the age of 90. Oh

well, what is two years <grin!

Thomas Francis KELLY's place of birth on the Death Record from Peterborough

County & the Ontario Census of 1871 list his place of birth as Ireland

[Around 1799 or 1800]. According to the Oxford-On-Rideau Township, Grenville

County Census, Thomas & Hannah KELLY had the following 15 children born

between 1838 and 1866

[Only 28 years Folks!]:

1. James KELLY...b. 09, Sept., 1838 in Upper Canada. [My G-G-Grandfather]

2. Susana KELLY...b. abt. 1841 in Upper Canada

3. Mary KELLY...b. abt. 1842 in Upper Canada

12. Martha KELLY...b. abt. 1857 in U. C.-Married Edmund FULCHER-09, Jan.,

13. William KELLY...b. abt. 1859 or 1861 in U. C.

14. Thomas KELLY...b. abt. 1859 or 1861 in U. C.

Their eldest son, James KELLY, married Rebecca TOMPKINS [Daughter of Nathan

TOMPKINS- War of 1812 Veteran & son of Israel TOMPKINS-A well-known United

Empire Loyalist] in Kent County; Harwich Township, Ontario. James & Rebecca

KELLY were the parents of my Grandfather, Nathan Tompkins KELLY, who was born

on 24, August, 1867 in Blenheim, Harwich Township, Kent County, Ontario.

Nathan Tompkins KELLY & James & Rebecca Tompkins KELLY immigrated to the

United States in 1879 & ended up in Findlay Ohio, where my father, Luther

James KELLY was born in 1907.

It appears that most all of these KELLY's were Irish Protestant; More

specifically-Thomas Francis KELLY was Church of England or Episcopalian; Some

of the other KELLY's listed were Methodist.

Now I know that with all of these "KELLY KIDS!" that I have listed that I

have to have some cousins; whether they are KELLY'S; TOMPKINS; FULCHER'S;

ROSE'S; BROWN'S; or GREW'S out there somewhere. If anyone recognizes these

names please e-mail me or contact me on my message board on my website listed

below:

Hello Listers:

On July 13, 1999 I received an e-mail from a Dorothy Howe Suri <e-mail name
Dotsuri regarding a Naomi Kelly; born February 8, 1845 in Burritt's Rapids,
Ontario Canada.  She indicated to me that she was a fifth generation
descendant of Naomi Kelly Howe Morgan.  At that time, I was unaware that
Thomas & Hannah {Brown} Kelly had fifteen children, one of which was a Neome
or Naomi Kelly born in Burritt's Rapids about 1845 or 1847.

Subsequent, to Dorothy Suri's e-mail I discovered the following:

1. From "Who's Where, A Guide To The Cemeteries of Rideau Township,"  edited
by Jim Kennedy and produced by the Rideau Heritage Board of Publication,
Township of Rideau, in 1980, Thomas KELLY and Hannah KELLY are listed as
being buried in Christ Church Anglican Church Cemetery, Burritt's Rapids in B
10.  The inscriptions on the small white vertical monument that was repaired
and restored by the cemetery board in 1997 reads....."Hannah KELLY; Died 15,
March, (Blank) Ae 78 years."......[This (Blank) year is unusual & basically
means that the place where her death should have been engraved was quite
smooth & appears as though it has never been cut!  Has anyone else come
across a similar situation?]  On the adjacent side of this four-sided
gravemarker is another inscription which reads......"Thomas KELLY; Died 28,
April, 1891, Ae 90 years."

2. According to the 1871 Census of Ontario, Thomas KELLY's birhplace was
listed as Ireland and his age as 61.  His religion was listed as Church of
England, Anglican and his occupation was listed as a lobourer!  This 1871
Census of Ontario shows Thomas KELLY as residing in Leeds & Grenville, North
District, (070) & in the Subdistrict of Oxford (E).

3.Thomas KELLY & his wife, Hannah {Brown} KELLY, are listed with their
children on the 1861; 1871; & 1881 Leebee Census for Oxford-On-Rideau
Township, Grenville County, Ontario, Canada as follows:

(1)James KELLY; {My Great-Great Grandfather}...Born 09, September, 1838 in
Burritt's Rapids, Grenville County, Ontario, Canada!

(2)Susana KELLY; Born about 1841 in Upper Canada!

(3)Mary KELLY; Born about 1842 in Upper Canada!

(4)Sarah KELLY; Born about 1843 in Upper Canada!

(5)Elizabeth KELLY; Born about 1845 in Upper Canada!

(6)Neome or Naomi KELLY; Born about 1847 in Upper Canada!

(7)Kezeth KELLY; Born about 1848 in Upper Canada!

(8)Maria or Mariah KELLY; Born about 1851 or 1852 in Upper Canada!

(9)Safia or Sofia KELLY; Born about 1851 in Upper Canada!

(10)Jemimi or Jamima KELLY; Born about1853 or 1855 in Upper Canada!

(11)Jerusa; Jariusa; or Jerusha KELLY; Born about 1855 or 1856 in Upper
Canada!

(12)Martha Kelly; Born about 1857 in Upper Canada!

(13)William KELLY; Born about 1859 in Upper Canada!

(14)Thomas KELLY; Born about 1859 or 1861 in Upper Canada!

(15)Albert KELLY; Born about 1863 or 1866 in Ontario, Canada!

My problem is that I I have misplaced Dorothy Howe Suri's e-mail address and
I need to desperately contact her to advise that I have discovered a Naomi
Kelly, who I believe to be the same Naomi Kelly that she is descended from. 
If anyone could assist me in locateing Dorothy Howe Suri <e-mail name
Dotsuri it would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

Hello Richard & Listers:

In the spirit of your e-mail here is my first post for the New Year! 

Are there any Tompkins or Kelly descendants out there who are aware of the
following:

My Great Great Grandfather James KELLY [Born: 09, Sep., 1838 in Burritts
Rapids, Oxford-on-Rideau Township, Grenville County, Upper Canada & who died:
 07, Feb., 1922 at about 83 years of age in El Dorado, Butler County, Kansas]
appears on the 1861 Oxford-on-Rideau Leebee Census at age 23 as a part of his
father's Thomas Francis KELLY's [Born somewhere in Ireland about 1800-Died
28, April, 1891at age 90 or 92 in Belmont Township, Peterboro County,
Ontario-Buried in Burritts Rapids Christ Church Anglican Cemetery,
Oxford-on-Rideau Township, Grenville County, Ontario] family, just before he
migrated to Harwich Township, Kent County, Upper Canada.

I found James KELLY on the 1871 Ontario Census as a 33 year old farmer of the
Methodist Religion [His father, Thomas KELLY, was Anglican or Episcopalian]
living in Kent District; Harwich Subdistrict.  The 1871 Ontario Census also
lists James KELLY's birthplace and his ethnicity as Irish.  

The Archiva Index to the 1871 Census of Ontario - National Archives of Canada
lists James KELLY as follows:  "Age: 33; Birthplace: Ontario; Religion:
Methodist: Origin: Irish; Occupation:  Farmer; District:  KENT (002);
Sub-district:  Harwich (D); Division:  2; Page:  8; Microfilm reel:  C-9891: 
Reference:  RG31 -- Statistics Canada."

James KELLY subsequently married Rebecca TOMPKINS [Born: about 1841 in Upper
Canada or Quebec-Died:  May of 1923 in El Dorado, Butler County, Kansas at
the age of 82. She was the daughter of Nathan TOMPKINS] in 1862.

The "Kent County, Ontario Marriage Registers 1857-1869; Volume One" lists: 
"James KELLY, age 22, of Harwich, born Canada, s/o Thomas & Hannah, Married
04, May, 1862, Rebecca TOMPKINS, age 21, of Harwich, Born Canada, d/o Nathan &
 Rebecca.  Witnesses:  Richer TOMPKINS of____________; Eliza TOMPKINS
of____________.

While residing in Kent County from about 1862 until about 1879 (17 years) ,
James KELLY & Rebecca KELLY had the following children:

1.  Electa Hannah KELLY (Married name--PRESSNELL):  Born: 14, February, 1862
in KENT County, Ontario, Canada.  Died:  13, March, 1915 in Findlay, Hancock
County, Ohio.  Her Record of Death in probate court indicated that she was 52
when she died of paralysis.  Her occupation was listed as a dressmaker. Her
address was 882 Park in Findlay, Ohio at the time of her death and she had no
surviving children.

2.  Nathan Tompkins KELLY (My Grandfather):  Born: 24, August, 1867 in
Blenheim, Kent County, Ontario, Canada.  Died:  06, December, 1934, at age
67, in Artesia, Eddy County, New Mexico.  He died early on a Thursday morning
(8:30 a.m.) at his home, about a mile Northwest of Artesia, of pneumonia.  He
had moved to Artesia, New Mexico in 1924, during the early oil boom and was
an oil rig driller and builder.  The U.S. 1900 Census of Findlay, Hancock
County, Ohio, lists Nathan TOMPKINS KELLY and his father, James KELLY, as
attaining the status of a naturalized U. S. citizen in 1879, at about the age
of 14.  Since his youngest sister, Orpha Jane KELLY, was born in Kent County
in 1875, it appears that he and his family emigrated from Canada between 1875
& 1879.  Because his maternal grandparents, Nathan & Rebecca TOMPKINS both
died in 1879, it is conceivable that this is the year that Nathan Tompkins
KELLY & his family emigrated to the U. S.
Nathan Tompkins KELLY married Laura Marie STATELER on 25, December, 1893 in

Hello Listers:

On July 13, 1999 I received an e-mail from a Dorothy Howe Suri <e-mail name
Dotsuri regarding a Naomi Kelly; born February 8, 1845 in Burritt's Rapids,
Ontario Canada.  She indicated to me that she was a fifth generation
descendant of Naomi Kelly Howe Morgan.  At that time, I was unaware that
Thomas & Hannah {Brown} Kelly had fifteen children, one of which was a Neome
or Naomi Kelly born in Burritt's Rapids about 1845 or 1847.

Subsequent, to Dorothy Suri's e-mail I discovered the following:

1. From "Who's Where, A Guide To The Cemeteries of Rideau Township,"  edited
by Jim Kennedy and produced by the Rideau Heritage Board of Publication,
Township of Rideau, in 1980, Thomas KELLY and Hannah KELLY are listed as
being buried in Christ Church Anglican Church Cemetery, Burritt's Rapids in B
10.  The inscriptions on the small white vertical monument that was repaired
and restored by the cemetery board in 1997 reads....."Hannah KELLY; Died 15,
March, (Blank) Ae 78 years."......[This (Blank) year is unusual & basically
means that the place where her death should have been engraved was quite
smooth & appears as though it has never been cut!  Has anyone else come
across a similar situation?]  On the adjacent side of this four-sided
gravemarker is another inscription which reads......"Thomas KELLY; Died 28,
April, 1891, Ae 90 years."

2. According to the 1871 Census of Ontario, Thomas KELLY's birhplace was
listed as Ireland and his age as 61.  His religion was listed as Church of
England, Anglican and his occupation was listed as a lobourer!  This 1871
Census of Ontario shows Thomas KELLY as residing in Leeds & Grenville, North
District, (070) & in the Subdistrict of Oxford (E).

3.Thomas KELLY & his wife, Hannah {Brown} KELLY, are listed with their
children on the 1861; 1871; & 1881 Leebee Census for Oxford-On-Rideau
Township, Grenville County, Ontario, Canada as follows:

(1)James KELLY; {My Great-Great Grandfather}...Born 09, September, 1838 in
Burritt's Rapids, Grenville County, Ontario, Canada!

(2)Susana KELLY; Born about 1841 in Upper Canada!

(3)Mary KELLY; Born about 1842 in Upper Canada!

(4)Sarah KELLY; Born about 1843 in Upper Canada!

(5)Elizabeth KELLY; Born about 1845 in Upper Canada!

(6)Neome or Naomi KELLY; Born about 1847 in Upper Canada!

(7)Kezeth KELLY; Born about 1848 in Upper Canada!

(8)Maria or Mariah KELLY; Born about 1851 or 1852 in Upper Canada!

(9)Safia or Sofia KELLY; Born about 1851 in Upper Canada!

(10)Jemimi or Jamima KELLY; Born about1853 or 1855 in Upper Canada!

(11)Jerusa; Jariusa; or Jerusha KELLY; Born about 1855 or 1856 in Upper
Canada!

(12)Martha Kelly; Born about 1857 in Upper Canada!

(13)William KELLY; Born about 1859 in Upper Canada!

(14)Thomas KELLY; Born about 1859 or 1861 in Upper Canada!

(15)Albert KELLY; Born about 1863 or 1866 in Ontario, Canada!

My problem is that I I have misplaced Dorothy Howe Suri's e-mail address and
I need to desperately contact her to advise that I have discovered a Naomi
Kelly, who I believe to be the same Naomi Kelly that she is descended from. 
If anyone could assist me in locateing Dorothy Howe Suri <e-mail name
Dotsuri it would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
Loren Kelly,

Howdy! Eh! Kelly:
My line descends from a Thomas Kelly {D.O.B. Unknown-But of Irish Origin}! He married a Hannah Brown {Marriage date unknown} and they sired a son by the name of James Kelly who was born on 09, Sep. 1838 in Burritt's Rapids, which is located in Oxford-Township-On-The Riedeau Canal, Grenville County, Ontario, Canada.

As a result of my research, I discovered a Thomas Kelly on the 1842 Census of Grenville County residing in Oxford Township on the second concession; lot two; and he had five people in his family group.

The 1842 Census also indicated that Thomas Kelly had resided there for seven years {Since about 1835}. I also checked Assessments for Grenville County {Oxford Township} and discovered a Thomas Kelley residing on Concession four; Lot six; consisting of 100 acres in 1840. Also in the Census Records for the Four Townships on the Rideau River, I discovered a Thomas Kelly residing in Oxford Township in 1840. This is probably my G-G-Grandfather.

There was a Ransom Kelly residing in Montague Township in 1825 and I discovered a baptism from Montague Township regarding a Sarah Kelly who was born on 23, March, 1845 to a Martin & Maria Kelly. I have also seen Military Records on a Martin Kelly and the name has popped up a number of times during my research in Grenville County.

From Ontario marriage records I have also been able to determine that James Kelly s/o Thomas and Hannah Kelly also had three sisters as follows: Martha Kelly; Jerusha Kelly; and Maria Kelly. Now from the marriage records it appears that my Kellys' moved around between Merrickville; Burritt's Rapids; & Kemptville in 1873; 1874; & 1875. These marriage records indicated that they were all Methodists.

I do know that on James Kelly's {My Great Grandfather's} death certificate there is a mention of Montreal. Where is Mara Township? Could the above Kelly's be related to your Martin Kelly?
Thanks, Loren Kelly, An Irish Canadian American, Living In Texas!



Query: Benjamin Kelley b.1814 married Elizabeth York from Shannoville, Hasting County, Ontairo Canada. Benjamin's father came from New York state, its hard to read the census..I think its a E Kelley born around 1781 and he was Lutheran. Benjamin and Elizabeth had nine children Samuel, Roseanna, David, Henry, Andrew, Ebenezer, Alice, Sarah, Bertha. They all got married and lived around Hasting, Prince Edward, Lennox+ACY-Addington Counties,.Ontario Canada. Anyone that has a connection with this family it would be appreciated...Carole Kelly

I am looking for information on my maternal grandmother her name was Margaret Kelly. She passed away in January of l928 when my mother was l8 years old , my mother's father had passed away when my mother was two years old and prior to them moving to Canada in January l9l2;

My grandmother's was born in Guernsey, her first husband's name was Thomas Moylan they had one son Ben who was born in approximately l898 and they had a daughter Margaret who died on December l4th, l895 at age 5 months.

I am in possession of two family albums which my grandmother brought toCanada with her in it are photos of her Mother , grandmother brothers, sisters etc. I am afraid that my mother told me quite a few of their names when I was around 8 or l0 years old and I remember very few . I happen to resemble my grandmother , and my daughter is more her aunt. If you know of anyone who is looking for photos of this family please let me know or if they would like to communicate. But also if you have any information on my grandmother like date of birth , her parents name and dates of birth plus her sibling names I woud love to know.

I have tried for around 5 years to find my mother nephew in the United States and have had no luck. My mothers full brother moved to the states in l952 and the only contact that we had with him was in approximately l974 when I needed information for my mother's birth certificate. I will pass the pictures on to my children but I treasure things like them and I thought that someone out there may also be searching.

My mother's half brother Ben Moylan passed away in Toronto, Ontario Canada in approximately l965. My father was not the type to encourage any contact with my mother's family. He passed away when I was a teenager. Well I hope that I haven't bored you to much. Take care and thank you for taking the time to read this e mail Yours truly Linda
