Email submitted from: /nisi/historyculture/genealogy.htm

Based on census records of 1790 and 1800 plus findings of other researchers who at this point seem to be looking at the same Kelly family, during the Revolutionary war our Kelly ancestors may have lived near a place known then as Quaker Meadows in the county now known as Burke, NC.

If Kelly's were there and participated, I hope their names crop up in military records somewhere in Burke County, NC.

I hope you can help.

Don Kelly, son of Oscar, son of Marcus Lafaette born Atlanta, son of Jessie born Habersham GA, son of Hiram born Burke County NC, son of Alexander (we believe) born King and Queen County, VA (or one of his brothers currently un-named.)

 

 


John Kelly/Hannah Moon: 1786, Guilford/Orange Co., NC

 

I am seeking information on the Parents of the John Kelly who married Hannah Moon, circa 1786 in Guilford/Orange Co.,NC. John was born about 1765 in NC, Virginia, Maryland or Pennsylvania. Hannah's  father, Richard Moon lived on Moons Creek, a branch of Reedy Fork Creek, about 8 miles west of the Guilford Co. Courthouse from 1762 until 1788 when they moved to Wilkes Co.,GA.

Richard Moon was a Quaker but was disowned in 1748 by the Hopewell (VA) MM.Two of Richards children were married in the New Garden MM,Guilford Co., NC in 1781 and 1782 but there is no marriage record there for John Kelly and Hannah Moon. Richard Moon`s brother James Moon during this time period lived in the Brush Creek area of Chatham Co.,NC. Perhaps John Kelly lived in this area also.

Any information you could provide on John's Parents would be greatly appreciated.

The Hiram KELLY Family is listed in the 1820 Census of Burke County
North Carolina.   Joseph the fourth child of Hiram & Elizabeth ( McGee)
Kelly was born 5 Aug 1820 in North Carolina.  The next child Benjamin
was born about 1822 in Habersham County, GA.

The Kelly Family and Patrick S. McGee, and the James McGee Family were
listed in the 1830 Census of Habersham County.  Neighbors of  the McGee
family included Owen(s) Families.  Marriage records include marriages of
Owen males to Kelly females, I am still researching the documentation of
these marriages.

Hiram Kelly is recorded in the 1840 Census of Cherokee County, GA and
1850 Census of Forsyth County, GA.  This seems to indicate that Hiram
moved from Habersham to Cherokee County between 1830 & 1840.  It is
possible that Hiram did not move between 1840 & 1850.  The 1850 Census
places the Kelly Families on both sides of the Cherokee/Forsyth County
line and history indicates the county line was altered between 1840 &
1850.  This suggest the probability that the county line moved, not the
Kellys.

Elizabeth McGee Kelly died in the early 1840s,  Hiram Kelly's marriage
to Malinda Anderson is recorded 16 Jul 1845 in the Lumpkin county
marriage records.  The burial site of Elizabeth Mc Gee Kelly has not
been located.

SEARCHING:  for death date of Patrick S. McGEE, location of  James P. 
McGEE  after the 1830 census. and any information on Owen OWEN, and
Elijah OWEN.

 Been reading about this Methodist church in Habersham County. My
 gggfather
 Hiram Kelly married Elizabeth McGee in 1813 in Burke County, NC. They
 had
 four children when they moved to Habersham County about 1823 where they
 had
 five more children. The last was Jesse R. Kelly born 1833 after which
 the
 families Kelly and McGee began slowly moving west one county at a time
 to
 Atlanta where in 1859 they jumped off to Arkansas. Hiram gave land for
 Methodist meeting houses in Georgia and his youngest son (my ggfather)
 became a doctor and in later life a Methodist minister.

 Since we don't know where they lived in Habersham, please keep an eye
 out
 for the families where Kelly and McGee crop up. We have land records
 from
 every county in Georgia except Habersham.

 I am guessing (bad idea I know) that since Habersham opened up in 1818
 there
 were few towns in 1823 which narrows down the search (somewhat) <GRIN
 Clarksville may be one there in 1823 so a possibility, but who knows?

 Thanks a bunch

The following post may not be my Kelly family, but it is interesting because some of the names appear in my direct line of Kelly.

Joseph Kelly is a gguncle born NC about 1815, raised in Habersham County, GA; moved family 1858 to Madison County AR.

Rachael Speer, this Joseph's wife, may be related to Mary Speer, wife of Patric Stuart McGee, my ggggparents from NC, died about 1840 Cherokee County GA.

Children of Henry and Sarah Stewart Kelly:
Nancy
Rachel
Rebecca
Sarah
Samuel Henry
Jesse Marklin

Rebecca, Sarah and Jesse Marklin; My ggrandfather was Jesse R. Kelly and Rebecca and Sarah were his sisters names.

These coincidences may indicate a family relationship, but not my direct line.

I still have not found documentation for the marriage of Joseph and Elizabeth (FRANCES) KELLY.  I found a Thomas Francis family residing in Forsyth County GA in the 1850, 1860, 1870 & widow Elizabeth Francis in the 1880 census.  Because of the similarity of given names listed in the 1850 Census Willie was certain this is Joseph Kelly's inlaws.  My friend in Salt Lake found the probate of the Thomas Frances estate in the Forsyth County Court records.  A copy of something from the file was mailed to "Mrs Kelly."   While the census prior to 1850 does not provide much more than the name of the head of household and ages of the other residents in the home, I believe I have found the census for this family back to about 1820,

Willie recalled seeing a Family Bible, and she believed  someone residing in Goshen had the Bible.  Her memory is failing but she has mentioned this several times over the years, so I'm confident she saw a Bible somewhere, but who did it belong too.  A mystery.

Also, I think we have all heard that Jesse took his family and possibly Joseph's to Texas after Joseph was killed.  The probate information in Madison County for the Hiram Kelly estate list Jesse R Kelly as the executor, but at a later date indicated he was out of the area and were appointing a new executor.  It would be interesting if any one has any information to support the travel to Texan and better yet if we knew the Texas location.

My plan is to search records for GA and NC for more documentation for  Hiram Kelly's early years.  Patrick Stewart (Stuard) McGEE is in NC census and property records prior to the marriage of Elizabeth and Hiram.  I have found the names in some indexes and I plan to look for the records.  Patrick McGee was living in Forsyth County, GA so I think we may locate a probate file for him in the Forsyth County Records.  The person I believe to be Thomas Jr. appears in census I believe through 1880.

I need to finish the projects I have going and print the handouts for the class I am doing next week.  Then I can get back to research..

I am excited about the Francis information.  I called Willie this morning and she is delighted to know I have found so much.  I'll print the family sheets and mail them and the copies of the census and court records to her.

 Thanks,

Montez also sent me the correction.  I received the Burke County Genealogy society quarterly today and found  an extraction from court records that Alexander H. Kelly had been called for jury duty.  I'm in the middle of doing some software upgrades and getting a newsletter out, but I will be posting a query on the Burke County NC list seeking information about Alexandar H Kelly.  Was the H for Hiram?  Interesting.

Let's give some thought to the names of the children as we consider given names of parents.  There was a naming pattern in the early 1800's,   The first child of Hiram and Elizabeth we can identify is Mary.  Research provided by others identifies Elizabeth's mother as Mary Spear, so we can consider that Hiram and Elizabeth may have named thier children for grandparents, aunts and uncles.  There is a two year span between the marriage date and the first child in our files and another two year span before the birth of the next child.  Births may have occurred during that span and the child died so young we have no evidence they existed.

As I research I look first at those individuals whose names are repeated in the next generation.  There were a number of Hiram Kelly's living in the vicinity of Burke County NC so I would guess that if we found a pedigree for one of them we might find individuals with with the same given names as Hiram's children.

One researcher sent me a file which includes possible sisters of Elizabeth McGee.  I think I sent you a message with those names a few weeks ago.  Patrick McGee is included in the some GA census along with a person I believe to be his son.

I think searching for tax, land, and probate records may prove productive.

Jonelle


I checked in Salt Lake City and the concensus is that the information on the land records is not on film and I need to get it from the Library in Burke County, NC.  When I receive the infomraiong from the library I may then need to contact the  NC Archives.

I believe that Monty has a copy of not only the bonds but Hiram and Elziabeths marriage licenses.  I think I have a copy in the files I am reorganizing.

I cannot begin the time line for Hiram  prior to the 1813 Marriage.

Page 95 of the 1820 Census of Burke County, NC:  Hriam Kelly, age between 26 & 45.; the household included 3 females under age 10., 1 female age 16 to 24, and 1 female age 26 to 45.
 [There are at least  three other Kelly families in this census. Ruben and Alexander over 45 years old, and  James and Hiram in the same age bracket.  However given the age span if Hiram is at the youngest end and James at the eldest end, we cannot totally eliminate the possibility that he could be Hiram's father]
 
Page 34 Book B Habersham County Deed Book B.  and entry dated 9 Jan 1823 indicates that Hiram Kelly purchased 50 acres of  land from Daniel McDowell.

1830 Census of Habersham County, GA page 59, line 4:  Hiram Kelly: one male age 30 to 40, two males age 5 to 10,  two females  age 10 to 15, one female 15 to 20, and one female 30 to 40.

Cherokee County GA Land Records: #340 Book F pages 186-387.  Deed dated Cherokee county 13 Jan 1841 recored 16 Aug 1842 from Thos J Parks to Hiram Kelly

1850 Census of Forsyth County GA 31st District ?page159? Line 9: Hiram Kelly age 56, occupation blacksmith property value 5000, born NC;  wife - Malinda age 44 born TN, children Elmina age 4, Eliza age 3, Melinda age 1/2 yr, and Jesse R. Kelly age 20, all born in GA

1860 Cenus Little Spring Madison County AR page 259, line 19 dwelling 127, family 125 Hirma Kell age 70 a farmer born in NC.  real estate value $2500,  personal property value $2500, bonr in NC:; Malinda age 48 born TN, Elmina age 14, Eliza age 12, and Malinda age 10 all bonr in GA.

1862 death of Hiram Kelly  Hirams estate was still in probate several years lated my note give an 1887 date, but I beleive that is a typine error.  Two of the girls reportly married Browns, I found one in a census record.  I have not confirmed what happened to the widow.  There is a rumor that she remarried and then divorced, but I have found no record to confirm that as yet.

I think land and property records may provide the key to the identity of Hiram's father.  He may be named in a probate file or in deed records. if the father died prior to Hiram.   As an hier it is likely that he would be requred to sign papers before or at the time the father's estate was sold..

I have committments for the next week and it is not likely I will be able to do any research for a few weeks.  I hope this information is helpful answering your questions.

In 1843, Hiram Kelly married Ann Martin ( a Widow), in Rabun County, GA. Then they moved to his home in, Buncombe County, NC, or Servierville, TN.   salud Symes

Jesse R Kelly son of Hiram and Elizabeth (McGee) Kelly was born 29 Nov 1833 in Habersham County Georgia.  Hiram Kelly is listed in the Burke County, NC Census of 1820, Habersham County Georgia, 1830, Cherokee County, Georgia 1840, Forsyth County GA 1850, Madison County AR 1860.

Hiram Kelly married Malinda Anderson 16 July 1845.  Hiram and Malinda had three children with them at the time of the 1850 Census of Forsyth County, GA.
 

Other than ages and birth places given for the children, I cannot prove the Hiram listed in the pre 1850 census is my GGG Grandfather.   I have found some property records placing in him in GA and I am attempting to locate the Burke County, NC land records for Hiram Kelly.

I just sent a time line based on the results of my research to Don.  I
spent this after noon visiting with the folks living in Burke County
NC.  I still had about three pages to read when Ancestry.com shut down
to work on their servers.   James  and Ruben Kelly listed who could be
brothers to Hiram, but given the age span  and margin for error in the
entry, I cannot elimate them as the possible father of Hiram.  Alexander
is the correct age, but there is no evidence as yet to confirm that
possibility.  I cannot recall what I read that leads me to be doubtful
tha Alexander is the father.

I have been checking the catalog for the LDS Library and printing call
numbers for books and film I want to check when I get to Salt Lake in
May.

I spent most of my research time this  week researching the Thomas
Francis family, It appers that Thomas and Elizabeth Francis are th
probable parents of Elizabeth Rebecca Francis, who married Joseph
Kelly.  Joseph and "Rebecca" Kelly were living in Cherokee county GA in
1850.  I have read the online marriage indexes for Cherokee, Forsyth,
Habersham and other nearby counties and have not found a record of the
marriage.  My friend in Salt Lake has been checking as well, also with
no result.

I have a report to write tomorrow and some flyers to do.  I'm leaving
early Friday morning to drive to Santa Barbara for a meeting.   I'll
return home Sunday, but next week I need to print the handouts for my
class..

I'm headed for slumberland.  Maybe I'll dream of where to find the
Joseph Kelly marriage record.

Later,

Jonelle

Hi Don,

Thanks for your response I cannot put our Kelly/Kelleys together. The positive information on the Kelleys I have is from Benjamin and Mitilda "Millie" Spearman Kelley and their children. William, David, James Turpin, Susannah, Nancy, Eleanor(my line).I have complete info on Eleanor. I also know James Turpin (J T) moved with his wife's family the Murphrees to Texas in the early 1860's.

I have lots of research on the Nelson Kelley family who moved from Stafford  and Fairfax Co. Va. to Anson Co NC. Then to Laurens Co. SC. Nelson moved on to Bedford Co Tn. between the 1800 census and the 1810 census. His son Reubin moved along with him to Laurens Co. SC he was on the 1810 Census in Anderson Co. SC and had moved to Bedford Co. TN. soon after 1810. I know Reuben had a son named Benjamin. I cannot prove the link yet.

Some of the families traveling with this Kelley family out of VA. into NC didn't stay in SC but moved on into GA. The Higginbottoms moved on to GA. So who knows all of these Kelleys may be one happy family at some point.

If any of these names are in your line I would love to work with you on research.

Again thanks for sharing your info with me. Till later Becky

 

 

 

 

 


I don't know yet if this will be helpful tying our lines from GA back
to  NC.  I suspect that the father of Joshua C Ellis may have been
William Ellis.  I am currently going through data in Cherokee and
Forsyth County GA searching for a connection.  Joshua C sold his land in
Cherokee County before he is listed in the 1850 Census of Forsyth
County.  Following this message is the Burke County NC land patents.

There were a number of Hiram Kelly's listed in the NC census in the
early 1800s, however one of these may be our Hiram.

Patrick S. McGee is the name given by previous researchers as the father
of Elizabeth McGee.  As I recall both the Kelly and McGee families are
shown in Habersham County GA census records at the same time (I think
1830).

I am including some of the census data from the Burke County NC, but I'll use Ancestry.com and read those.  I also checked the marriage books on the Burke County page and found Hiram Kelly and Elizabeth McGee listed.
When I checked the brides index there are two other McGee brides who
could be Elizabeth's sisters.

While in Salt Lake City I transcribed some GA deed records.  I am attempting to find some additional information to connect Joshua C and William Ellis.  There is a William J Ellis showing up in the land records. Something may eventually connect them.  I'll keep trying.  I will study the copies I have for any clues and my next search will be for probate records.

While in Salt Lake, I also copied some AR  deed and probate records. The records I think I need were not copied by LDS.  I'll check with the Genealogy Society in Madison County  about possible films of these books.  I copied all the data from the index done by Desmond Walls Allen and can perhaps employ some one to visit the courthouse and copy the material for me.  I did find some records I had not previously read. They provide dates and bits of family history.

I'll keep you posted as I find new information.  I have some confused data to clearup in one of the Madison County lines.  I'm searching the web tonight for more data on our AR kinfolk and I'll call Willie Bohannan tomorow morning and ask her some questions.  She has all the Madison County Genealogical Society publications and she'll check everyone of them for information.  When she learns new information on a family she writes it in the margins of the books.

Later,

Jonelle

The copies of the information from Cherokee County County Marriages
1849-1858,  p. 237 copied from FHLS film #325922 was in the mail I
received while I was at the FGS Conference in Ontario CA
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The autorization for the marriage was issued  11 Feb 1854.  The
statement from John T Tomlin, JP  states, "I do certify that Jesse K
Kelly and Elizabeth Ann Richards were duly joined into matrimony by me
this 21 of Febury 1854."

The record was entered 4 Jun 1854. by James Jordan        Ordinary
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I noted that the record is for Jesse K Kelly.  While there may have been
another Jesse Kelly in Cherokee County in 1854, I think it is more
likely that the person entering the information in the marriage book
mistook the an R for a K.  It seems to me highly unlikey that there
would be two Jesse Kelllys both marrying Elizabeth Ann Richards.

If you have a conflicting record please let me know and I will continue
searching for additional supporting information.

-----------------

The other research I requested related to Elizabeth M (Kelly) Monroe,
daughter of Elizabeth and Hiram Kelly born about 1819 in Burke County,
NC.  I was provided data indicating she is buried in Sons Chappel
Cemetery in Washington County AR.  Forsyth County, GA marriage records
her marriage 1840 to Thomas Monroe.  I believe there is also a GA record
of a deed transfer from Hiram Kelly to Thomas Monroe.   My file
indicates this couple were the parents of nine children. born beteen
1843 & 1863.

My friend found a Washington County AR record where Fanny L Monroe
presented evidence that Perry D Monroe had died intestate in Washington
County AR , 7 Mar 1880.  Fannie L Monroe, widow; Thomas L Monroe; and
Fannie K.  Monroe were named heirs-at-law.  The record also includes the
coordinates for real property in Fayetteville and Washington County and
additionally personal property valued at $25.

This record is not a concrete indication that this is the family of
Thomas and Elizabeth (KELLY) Monroe.  There are some sound clues, if my
records are correct.  Thomas and Elizabeth had a son Thomas L born about
1848, and their youngest son's name was Price born about 1863.
Additional records may exist, and I may even have some in my notes.  I
have not had time to review the file, but I wanted to pass on this
information.

Not all of the AR records are on film in the Family History Library.  I
may not be able to move forward with this family until I can make a trip
to AR or afford to pay a researcher to search those books for me.

I would appreciate any related information you can share.  I did not
have opportunity to read my email while I was at the conference, and
ofcourse the household mail accumulated as well and I have not yet
unpacked all the personal and society items from my car.  I'll work my
way through all the mail and chores and pass on any information I locate
when I can snatch some time to go through my notes and files.

 I'm still reviewing my files for the "AR Homecoming" and found some information I had not reviewed for a couple of years.  I found a 1998 message from Jill and Randy Shoemaker that is interesting.

Jill sent a chronology of the McGee Family.

12 Dec 1776 - marriage bonds fo Patrick  Stuart McGee and Mary Speer were posted in Rowan County NC

1789 Patrick S McGee bought 100 acres of land on Brush Creek in Iredell County, NC

1790 Census of Salisbury District, Iredell County, NC Patrick McGee,  1 male over 16, 1 male under 16, and  3 females.  Jil did not list her source for this but I found this census on Ancestry.com using the direct link.  The hand written  number on the page is 388.

30 Mar 1792 Iredell County, NC, Patrick McGee was witness for a deed.

before 1800,  "Steurd" McGee was taxed for 50 acres next to William McGee who was taxed for 84 acres. (Burke County, North Carolina Records 1755 -1821)

1810 Census Burke County NC--Patrick S McGee, 1 male under 10, 1 male 16-26, 2 females under 10, 1 female 16 -20, and 1 female over 45.
 

13 Nov 1813 Marriage Records Burke County, NC  Elizabeth McGee  and Hiram Kelly were married.

1820 Census Steward McGee. 1 male between 10 &15, 1 male 48 to 50, 1 female 10 to 15, 1 female 16 to 26, & 1 female 26-45.
1820  (this is listed as census but I think it was the Manufacturing and Agriculture census)  Wm McGee.

1830 Census Habersham County GA  Patrick S McGee  1 male over 70  & 1 female over 60
1830 Census Habersham County GA James P McGee  1 male 20 to 30 & 1 female between 15 & 20. and 1 female 40 to 50

[neighbors of the McGees were Elijah Owen  2 males under 5, 2 males 5 to 10,  2 males 10 to 15,  and 1 male 30 to 40  & 1 female 15 to 20, and 1 female 20 to 30,
Also owen Owen 1 male 5 to 10, 2 males 10 to 15, 1 male 15 to 20 and 1 male 60 to 70  & 1 female 5 t0 10 and 1 female 40 to 50.
 

Habersham County GA Marriages

MAGEE, Anna md to ANDERSON, Abel   02/24/1825
MAGEE, Rebecca md to OWEN, Elijah   06/12/1823

Jil suggested that Elizabeth, James, Anna, and Rebecca  may be children of Patrick S. McGee.  We seem to agree taht Elizabeth is the daughter of Patrick McGee.
 

1840 Census Hiram Kelly was in Cherokee County, as were Joshua and Sarah (Kelly) Ellis.
I thought I had extracted the Owens in 1840 but  I don't see the page here on the desk.

1850 Hiram Kelly was in Forsyth County with his second wife Malinda. and their two daughters.
1850 Joseph, Benjamin, Andrew Kelly, Thomas Monroe, and an Elijah and "Isabelle" Owen and I believe Able Anderson were all in Cherokee County
1860 Hiram and Joseph Kelly, and Joshua Ellis were in AR  I have read GA Census for 1860 but did not do extractions.  I don't have time to do more before leaving for AR.

I am not ready to say that Anna and Rebecca were sisters of Elizabeth McGee but I can see it is possible.  Perhaps more evidence can be found.  I wonder if there is a probate in Habersham county for Patrick's estate.

My best guess would be that Elizabeth McGee Kelly died 1843 or 1844 in Cherokee County.

I need to print files and pack tomorrow.  I hope to stop in Salt Lake enroute to AR to check some films.  It I can find time I want to read some deed books in Madison County.

I need to get some sleep, but  I want to share this information while I have most of it in front of me.

----------------------------------

Hiram Kelly is listed in the 1830 Habersham County Georgia Census on the page following following the McGee’s.  I’ll extract the census information from Ancesty.com this evening. Some of the names in this message are found on Family Search.

I found a James McGee born in Ireland with a daughter named Rebecca born in Burke County, GA.

The IGI has the 24 Feb 1825 marriage  of Anna Magee and Abel Anderson in Habersham, GA

Ancestry.com  Georgia Death Records  shows the 25 Dec 1946 death of an Abel Ancerson in Cherokee County, possibly a decendant of  Anna and Abel Anderson.

The IGI file has Hiram Kellys from 1845 through 1978.  Some I recognize, some possible, but it is going to take some serious research time to sort through.

My current project is to trace the families listed in my database in through the census.  Ancestry has not indexed all the census as yet.  I have some information in my notes and some I’ll just have to read the census.  It is only time, right, but if you have any state, county, page numbers etc. send them along to speed up the process.

I'll report later.

I copied this information from the Burke County NC  USGenWeb page.
I am interested in learning more about Ben Kelly because Hiram named a son Ben. The Lanes are included because some of the early settlers in Madison County, AR were Lanes.

More as I can do research.

Hiram Kelly is listed in the 1830 Habersham County Georgia Census on the page following following the McGee’s.  I’ll extract the census information from Ancesty.com this evening. Some of the names in this message are found on Family Search.

I found a James McGee born in Ireland with a daughter named Rebecca born in Burke County, GA.

The IGI has the 24 Feb 1825 marriage  of Anna Magee and Abel Anderson in Habersham, GA

Ancestry.com  Georgia Death Records  shows the 25 Dec 1946 death of an Abel Ancerson in Cherokee County, possibly a decendant of  Anna and Abel Anderson.

The IGI file has Hiram Kellys from 1845 through 1978.  Some I recognize, some possible, but it is going to take some serious research time to sort through.

My current project is to trace the families listed in my database in through the census.  Ancestry has not indexed all the census as yet.  I have some information in my notes and some I’ll just have to read the census.  It is only time, right, but if you have any state, county, page numbers etc. send them along to speed up the process.

 Hi!  I saw you post on the Burke Co Page under Most Wanted.  I am a
 descendant of Armer Kelley.  Did you have part in the book published a few
 months ago by Bill Walker?  A lot of us gave him our information and he put

 your name but skimmed through it and could have missed your name.

 There is a picture of Hiram Kelley in the book.

 6. viii. Nellie A. Kelley, b. September 1880.


 5. vii. Mae Evelyn Kelley, b. January 10, 1879, Water Valley, Yalobusha Co., Mississippi;
 went on to marry Samuel Hickman Weakley and they had their children
 in Noble, Louisiana (Sabine parish). Her children were Samuel, Emmett, and Evelyn.

 There were 4 Hiram Kellys in NC from 1840 to 1870 that were on the

Click here for land record purported to belong to our Hiram Kelly:

Click here  ______________________________
 I copied this message from the  Burke County NC list.    Hiram Kelly and
 Elizabeth McGee posted their marriage bonds in Burke County NC.  Based
 on the evidence I have they moved from NC to GA about 1828.

 However after our Hiram and Eliazabeth were in GA, census records list a
 Hiram Kelly, blacksmith living in Old Fort.

 Willie Bohannan told me her grandfather, Joseph Kelly was a blacksmith
 and she believed Hiram was also a blacksmith.  She believed that Hiram
 had been killed because he would shoe horses for anyone who ask, I have
 no evidence to document Hiram's death.  He died in 1862 and Joseph in
 1863.  The oral history indicated Joseph was killed by bushwackers.

 I read the probate file for Hiram Kelly, but the final page was
 missing.  That is the page which should have listed his property and
 possesions.  It occured to me recently that LDS might have filmed the
 records before the page was lost.  I plan to check for that in Salt Lake
 City  next month.

 Back to this message,  the Hiram Kelly in Old Fort could be father,
 grandfather, uncle, or cousin of our Hiram.  Some research in McDowell
 County might turn up something.

I am looking for any additional information anyone can provide on an
Edmond Kelly
who is listed on the 1810 census for Moore County NC.  The entries are:
   1 male age 26-44
   1 female age 26-44
   3 boys under age 10
   4 girls under age 10
He does not appear to be listed on either the 1800 or 1820 census for
Moore County.

I think this may be my gg grandfather, who migrated from Ireland to NC
and then moved on to
Tennessee and then on to Missouri, where he died.  Information passed
down through our family
was that he ended up having 12 children, one of whom was my g
grandfather Spencer Kelly who
was born in 1811.

Edmond Kelly who is listed on the 1810 census for Moore County, NC.

This site offet a lot of historical information about Burke County
Land.  When I checked the Alpha list I did find Hiram Kelly, and Patrick
S. McGee.  There is also an entry for William Ellis, whom I suspect is
the father of Joshua C Ellis.   I suppose we might be able to contact
the library for copies of the information on the card.  It would be
interesting to know the location of the land.  It is still too early in
the morning for me to comprehend all I read, so I am not sure many of
the old land records still exist, but  I'd like to know what happened to
the land when they moved on to GA.

Don,

I could scan the page with Hiram's picture on it and email to you if you
would like. Me to, just let me know.

Also as I am looking, there is a small copy of information on John Kelley
from the family bible of Hiram Kelley.  It shows the page of the bible but
small, but I could also enlarge the print and try to email to you.  It states
that John Kelley b. 7-4-1814 in Old Fort had 6 children:  Mary, Ellen,
Lucinda, John, Billy, and Charles.

There is also a pic of Mary J. Kelley and John Allison, Mary is Hiram's
daughter. There are also copies of 3 pages of John Allisons bible.

yes, there is much confusion on who Armer (Armor) 's father was for sure. 
Maybe one day we will get this all figured out.  Armor is my 3rd Great
Grandfather.

Where in this mess do you fit in?  Nice to talk to another, new found cuz.

Hi Cousins,

The following data was obtained through a link posted on the Burke

location and close proximity of these entries it may be a clue to
relative of our Hiram Kelly.

I will not have opportunity to research this before late fall.  :-)

Hiram had 4 sons. 1-Bemjamine, 2-Joseph, 3-Andrew, 4-Jesse.  #3 Andrew was the father of James, whose sister was Mrs. Manley's Mother. By the way, Hiram spelled the name Benjamine, which is a reason to suspect that Hiram's father was Benjamin!   salud, dick

 

 


Click here to see 1790 land record for Burke County North Carolina

Don,
I didn't find you anything too exciting today. I found an Alex. Hamilton
Kelly in the 1790 Land Entries for Burke Co.
In the same book I found a John Kelly listed under the heading
No Date, Pre-1800: Capt. (Mont)forts's Co. (Poor Condition).
His acreage was 350.
I have scanned the page with Alex. for you to print out. I can scan the one
w/ John Kelly if you are interested.
How are you doing?
Hugs,
Chris

Looking for info on John Kelly, born approx. 1750 in Ireland.  Came to
America in 1775.  Landed in NC, married Anna Hunter (need verification of
marriage) received land grant for land in what would be Greene Co. TN  after
fighting in American Revolution.  Had at least 3 sons by first wife:  John
Jr.(born 1776), Andrew and Joseph.  Remarried around 1800 and had several
other children.  I have evidence of second marriage but first still eludes me!

I would also be interested in the Kelly connection especially with Sheffield family. my Gr-grandmother Sara Winnie Sheffield b: 3 JUL 1832 AL mar Daniel Kelly Trant, b: 28 APR 1822, Warren Co., GA. They had 13 children. Have data on all 13 .
Sara parents were Thomas Sheffield b:1803 NC, mother Nancy Bush Beasley b: 1809 NC. Also have their ancestors.
Daniel Kelly Trant father was James Trant b: 1788, Warren Co., GA .
His parents were John Trant d: Warren Co., GA 1799, whose wife Sofie was exetrx.
James Trant married Rebecca Kelly b: SC 1798. Believe her father to be Daniel Kelly born in Ireland, township unkn.
Marriage settlement signed in SC of Daniel Kelly, Jr. Married Ann Marion, Jan. 1797
Settlement signed by three members of General Francis Marion's family. Same Daniel?

My grandfather James Monroe Kelly b: 25 Jul 1862 (bros. John, Thomas & Frank,sister) orphaned, lived with his Trant cousins who had moved to Dale Co., AL. He married Mary Frances Trant, 5th child of Daniel Kelly Trant. They were cousins and is so noted in the census of 1880.
We don't know if James Trant had bro/sisters nor if Rebecca had bro/sister.
Any suggesstions appreciated.

From Bill and Linda Walker......possibly connected in 1700's to OUR N.C. Kelly line.

Appreciate the information provided by the Kelly Cousins. We are setting up a time-line for our line in an effort to connect to your line.

Alex Ham Kelly (probably Alexander Hamilton Kelly), William Kelly and Ben Kelly traveled together and are probably brothers. The issue is to find which one was our direct ancestor.

For clues to which one we look to the children of Sarah Caldwell who named one son Alexander Hamilton Caldwell, a Kelly tradition for naming children.

Another question is when did our ancestors come to America. In the 1880 census of Union Co. N.C. we find Sarah and Armor Kelly who both claimed father born in Ireland, mother born VA. So it figures that these particular Kelly brothers arrived in Virginia after 1775 (probably 1780).

Alexander Ham, youngest of the brothers, probably came around 1780. The three brothers left Virginia sometime after 1780 and slowly worked their way to Burke Co., N.C. There were other Kelly's probably related in Rutherford and Mecklenburg Counties.

Children of Alexander Hamilton Kelly, possibly numbering six to eight; Alexander Jr. 1781 - 1785, John 1785, Hiram 1787, James 1790's, Armor 1802, Sarah 1803. More may have been born in the 1790's.

NOTE from Don: The Hiram Kelly brother was born same year / same county as our Hiram Kelly. Our records do not have any information about Hiram's siblings, but does record Hiram's dad as Alexander Hamilton Kelly.

There our two sets of records differ wildly. Here is what we think happened....and am trying to proove or disprove: A family I heard while young is that three Kelly brothers came from Connacht, Ireland....not substantiated.

Second, our Alexander Hamilton was traced to his birth in 1755 in King and Queen County, Virginia....right time and place anyway.

What this means is that their Alexander Kelly born around 1780 and married in Virginia after 1780 probably are not in the same Kelly line.....by extrapolation if nothing else, yet anything is possible including building two families from one set of records. There are too many coincidences here to ignore, including the fact we have Caldwells on our side of the family to.

Thanks to Bill and Linda Walker.... wlwalker@accessunited.com ......

Don Kelly......... donkelly@grovenet.net ..........We hope some reader may provide further information.
