This material is not well organized and I may have sent the census information previously. I read the links from three pages of Bell County information and I believe I located the burial place and gravestone data for Elmina (Kelly) and Joseph Brown. I plan to be in Texas to attend the FGS Conference in September, and I may be able to locate the cemetery and get photos of the gravestones. While I believe this data is Emina Kelly (daughter of Hiram KELLY and his 2nd wife Malinda) and Joseph Brown, I would feel more comfortable if I can locate additional documentation.

I am looking for information, especially parentage and
place of birth in Ireland, for Francis G. KELLY. He
was first sighted in the US in Suffolk County, MA in
1860, married to Mary GLENNON, with a baby daughter,
Mary KELLY. Mary and Francis had two more children in
MA, Robert Emmett KELLY (1862) and Thomas Francis
KELLY(1864), and then moved to Chicago by 1870. In
Chicago, three more children were born, John (1866),
Kate, or Annie, unsure of the official name(1868) and
then William(1872). Sometime between 1872 and 1880,
Francis G. KELLY died. The family moved to East St.
Louis by 1890. I have lost track of the entire family
but Thomas Francis, who died in 1904. The only info I
have gleaned from census records on Francis is that he
and his parents and his wife were born in Ireland and
his approximate birth year is 1825-1830. If anyone has
any info on these KELLYS: Francis G, Mary, Robert
Emmett, John, William, and Kate/Annie, please contact
me! If we are kin, I have PICTURES of all of the
children in the 1880s.

 Do we have a match here?  I certainly hope  Looking forward to hearing from

 That is where I'm looking for a link The children of this marriage were:

 iii Samuel W Kelley, b March 1870, Mississippi

 Do any of these ring any bells? Thanks


Thanks - I would appreciate your posting  What is the address of the "Most
Wanted" page?   Anyway, these folks have been elusive and hunting for
Kelley's is like looking for the proverbial needle in a haystack   

Anyway, here's what I know:

Marquis Lafayette Kelley was born September 1836 "near Nashville" and died
January 4, 1895 in Hickory County  He married Hanna Elizabeth Ritchey
November 26, 1865 in Elkton, MO  She was born March 4, 1849 in Elkton, MO
and died May 24, 1927 in Hickory County, MO  Children:

William Barrington Kelley b Feb 24, 1865 Hickory County, MO; d May 21,
James Franklin Kelley, b Sept 17, 1866, d October 24, 1897
Minnie Era Kelley, b Apr 4, 1871; d Apr 13, 1947
Joseph Clay Kelley, b Nov 1, 1873
John Marquis Kelley, b Sept 15, 1876
Sarah Evaline Kelley, b Mar 23, 1881, Hickory County; d May 28, 1951,
Hickory Co, MO
Dina Mae Kelley, b Jul 11, 1882
Mary Ethel Kelley, b Nov 9, 1884, Hickory Co, MO; d Feb 16, 1969
Nancy Holly Kelley, b Oct 15, 1886; d Feb 15, 1914
Bessie Roslie Kelley, b May 11, 1888, d Mar 16, 1918
Jessie Matthew Kelley, b Sept 29, 1891

Marquis Lafayette (also seen as Marquis D L) Kelley was first found in the
Missouri census in 1860 in Hickory County, Missouri, although it is thought
his family came to Missouri earlier  He served in the Civil War and never
fully recovered from wartime illnesses, dying in 1895

His parents may have been James H Kelley,  b abt 1791 Ireland and Sarah
Unknown, b about 1810 in Virginia  At any rate, this is the only other
Kelley family shown in the 1860 Hickory County Census  The census listing

James H Kelley, 69, b Ireland
Sarah, 50 VA
 William, 21, TN, farmer
James, 17, TN, farmer
Samuel, 12, IL

I know this is fairly limited, but just about all I know about Marquis
Lafayette Kelley  Thank you for posting on your page

Subject: Re: Kelley family

Perhaps an indirect connection My Marcus was born about 1855 in Atlanta
His father was Doctor Jesse R (Richardson) Kelly who was born 1833
County, GA
Jesse was one of five sons of Hiram (Hyrum) Kelly who was born 1787 in
County NC

His five sons were Hiram Jr, Joseph, Benjamin, Andrew J, and Jesse and
stayed in GA Family history is that they had McGee and Kelly kin in
Tennessee Hiram Sr had several un-named as yet brothers Far as we can
tell, they didn't go to GA, but were not found in NC, so they could have
gone to TN

Hiram Sr with Jesse and Joseph and Marcus moved to Arkansas 1858 Hiram
Jr, Benjamin and Andrew J (Jackson) stayed in GA This is the second
I have seen in the Kelly line and they did repeat the names They were
after Lafayette who was on our side during the war of 1812

That branch of the family was one of thirteen Kelly/Kelley families that
lived in the whole state of VA between 1750 and 1775 One of those families
moved to KY We don't know about the other eleven families

Give me more information and I will post it to the Most Wanted Kelly page

http://wwwlsnet/~newriver/swva/hssv-6htm#kelly BRIEF GENEALOGY OF THE KELLY FAMILY By Emory L Hamilton Mrs J C Mitchell of Appalachia, VA has in her possession an old fire-damaged Bible belonging to some of the Kelly family which has names and dates recorded as below: Patrick Kelly born June 2, 1707 John Jackson Kelly born June 2, 1707 Matthias Kelly born December 28, 1777 No doubt this is a direct Kelly line and it remains for some family genealogist to make the connections This manuscript begins with a Matthias Kelly, who was probably a son of John Jackson Kelly, Sr, who had married Rebecca Jackson and lived in Tennessee Matthias Kelly married Abigail Sturgill, daughter of John and Jemima Wells Sturgill After their marriage they lived for awhile in Kentucky, probably Harlan County where some three or four of their oldest children were born Sometime in the 1830's they moved to the vicinity of Big Stone Gap which is his lifetime was known as the Three Forks of Powell River All this section was then Lee County, becoming Wise County in 1856 Matthias is said to have operated one of the first stores in Lee County somewhere in the Big Stone Gap vicinity Sometime in the 1850's he moved his family to Milam, in Sullivan County, Missouri where he lived through the Civil War years and had moved back to Wise County by 1870 While living in Missouri his son Franklin Newton Kelly married on May 9, 1861 to Salomey Jane Neighbors, and they had a son, John William Kelly born May 19, 1862 Franklin Newton enlisted in the Missouri State Militia as a Bugler in Company C of the 1st Cavalry Regiment commanded by Captain James McFerrin, and was killed April 28, 1864, near Warrensburg in Johnson County, Missouri Two birth dates have been uncovered for Matthias Kelly and which one is correct remains to be proven The first is December 28, 1797, and second December 28, 1800 He died December 15, 1872, and is said to have been buried about halfway between his old home site and Cadet alongside the L&N Railroad on a knoll and it has been said a large tree is growing out of his grave On January 3, 1818 he was married to Abigail Sturgill, born November 30, 1801 After the death
