I am interested in James Kelly who was born 1755-1765 and died aft 1820 in Wayne Co., MS.  He may have been the father of Dicey, wife of Elias Davis.  She was born 1790-1795 and per her grandson's bible, was nee' Kelly.  Elias Davis and his father, Thomas, were neighbors of James Kelly and his son, William, in both Darlington Co., SC and later Wayne Co., MS.  Any information greatly appreciated.
