Most Wanted Kelly of Ohio


Hello, I am researching my Kelly ancestors.  Edward Kelly arrived in Mercer Co Ohio sometime between the 1850 and 1860 census in Center Township, town of Neptune.  He married Elizabeth Poling (may not be her maiden name).  They had the following children: William, Emma, Anna, Amos, Thomas(?).  Elizabeth passed away apparently and Edward married her sister who was also a widow, Catherine Sheets.  Catherine brought into the family several children of her own.  Also living in the household was a Mary Jane Fast who we cannot place with anyone except the possibility she was the daughter of Elizabeth from a previous marriage.  This raises the question, however, about the last names Fast and Poling.  One census listed Mary Jane as Mary Jane Cook, which confused the issue even more.  Mary Jane eventually married William Kelly.  They had two children Ruchus Edward and Elizabeth.  R. Edward, who went by Edward R and would not reveal his "middle name" to many people married Elva Leola !
 Stose and they had four children, Mary Kathryn (my mother), Richard Irvin, William Benjamin, and Dorothy Jane.  Any help with this mystery would be greatly appreciated.

Hello Marva, Bob & Kelly Listers:

I have done some research on the Stateler's, but not as much as on my other
lines.
I will share with you some of what I have.  My connection to the STATELER
surname
is through my Paternal Grandmother, Laura Marie STATELER KELLY, born on 12,
September, 1869 in Gilboa, Ohio.  She died on 29, May, 1948 in Artesia,
New  Mexico.  I never met my grandmother, but all of my life I was informed
of what
a wonderful mother, grandmother, and woman that she was.  She was married to
my
Paternal Grandfather, Nathan Tompkins KELLY, who was born on 24, August, 1867
in Blenheim, Ontario, Canada.  According to the U.S. Census of June 2, 1900
in
Findlay Township, (Hancock County), Findlay, Ohio, Nathan Tompkins KELLY
(enumerated as Head of Household-32 years old) resided at 309 Defiance
Avenue.
His occupation was listed as that of an Oil Rig Builder, which is how he and
Laura
Stateler KELLY and their family ended up in Artesia, New Mexico, where they
are
both buried.  They followed the oil fields to Kansas, Wyoming, New Mexico,
Oklahoma, and Texas from Findlay, Ohio during the early 1900's through the
1930's.
This same U. S. Census indicated that Nathan Tompkins KELLY & his father
immigrated to this country in 1879, had been in the U.S. for twenty (20)
years at that
time, and that James KELLY, Nathan Tompkins KELLY father, was a naturalized
citizen.

Laura Marie STATELER was the daughter of Philip STATELER.  Philip STATELER
married Doratha WELLS [Laura STATELER's mother] on December 6, 1860 [Source:
Putnam County Ohio Marriages 1834 - 1877-copied by Ruth M. Pierce for Fort
Industry Chapter of the National Society of the Daughters of the American
Revolution
-Dallas Public Library-Ohio County Records-V-21-Roll # 89- Putnam County
Marriage Records 1834 - 1879-Page 238.]  Philip Stateler was born around 1840
and
died sometime in 1923, possibly in Findlay, Fostoria, or Gilboa, Ohio. 
According to
the U.S. Census of 1880 in Findlay Burrough, in Hancock County, State of
Ohio, enumerated on June 18, 1880,  Philip STATELER was listed as follows:

Address:  417 Western Road

Philip STATELER was a barrel maker and foreman in a factory in Fostoria,
Ohio.

The 1870 U.S. Census-Incorporated Village of Gilboa, Blanchard Township,
Putnam
County, Ohio, enumerated on June 27, 1870 finds Philip STATELER and his
family
as follows:

**Philip Statler......31......Occupation-Laborer
  *Doratha.............30......Keeping House
  *Florence............6.......At Home
  *Nevada..............3.......At Home

I went back 10 years earlier to the !860 U.S. Census & discovered Philip
STATELER
living with his father, Joseph STATELER, as follows:

The 1860 U. S. Census Blanchard Township, Putnam County, Ohio, enumerated on
July 6, 1860 states:

I discovered Joseph and Philip STATELER again on the 1850 U. S. Census as
follows:

The 1850 U.S. Census for Blanchard Township in the County of Hancock, State
of
Ohio, enumerated on the 25, September, 1850 states:

#  120:

   *Eliza Jane Francis STATELER....24
   *Philip........................................11
   *Eliza Ann...................................8
   *William......................................6
   *Elmira.......................................2

I found some additional information on Philip Stateler's brother, Parley C.
Stateler  Laura Marie Stateler KELLY's Uncle].  I have an original Business
Card for Parley
C. Stateler that has his picture on it and that states:  "Real Estate-Dealer
in Real
Estate and Timber Tracts-Money Loaned on Real Estate Security-Dr. P. C.
Stateler, Gilboa, Ohio"  This business card was passed down from my
Grandmother
to my Father, to me.  From an Atlas of Putnam County, on page 92, I
discovered
this article on influential residents:

"P.C. Stateler, V. S.

The subject of this sketch was born in Putnam County, Ohio, in 1858.  He
followed
farming for a livelihood until 1886 when he left the farm and for then next
two years
attended Veterinary College at Toronto, Canada.  When completing his college
course Dr. Stateler moved to Gilboa, Ohio and spent the next seven years of
his
life in the exclusive practice of Veterinary Surgery in Putnam and adjoining
counties.
Being a very close student the Doctor elevated himself to the standard of his
profession and enjoys an enviable reputation for his knowledge of disease and

medicine and his skill as a surgeon.

His picture  [The exact same picture that I have on the Business Card that
was
passed down through my family] is inserted next and then the article finishes
as follows:

In 1894 he began to handle real estate in connection with veterinary surgery
and
medicine and in this line too he has proved himself very proficient and at
any and
all times you can find him with a large list of valuable farm and town
property at
very reasonable prices."

On August 26, 1989 I interviewed my Aunt, Doratha KELLY PAINTER, Daughter
of Laura Marie Stateler KELLY and Nathan Tompkins KELLY. She related the
following information to me:

"Doratha Rebecca Kelly PAINTER was thirteen (13) years old in December of
1917
when she moved with Nathan Tompkins KELLY (Her father) mother, one (1) sister
and four (4) brothers to El Dorado, Kansas to work the great El Dorado Oil
Field,
which was rated as producing over 100, 000 barrels a day in September of
1917.
All of the KELLY boys assisted their father in building wooden oil rig
derricks when
the El Dorado Field was at its peak of production.

James KELLY and Rebecca Tompkins KELLY (Doratha's Paternal Grand Parents)
remained at the family home (309 Defiance Avenue) until the house was sold. 
After
selling the family home in Findlay, Ohio, James KELLY and Rebecca Tompkins
KELLY moved to El Dorado, Kansas where they lived with their son, Nathan
Tompkins KELLY & Laura Marie Stateler KELLY at 611 Cave Springs Avenue in
El Dorado.  James KELLY died at this residence at 84 years of age on February 7, 1922. 

His wife, Rebecca Tompkins KELLY died in May of 1922, about 3 months
later. They were both buried in El Dorado, Kansas, without grave stones.

Nathan Tompkins KELLY and his family moved from El Dorado, Kansas (Date
Unknown) to Caper, Wyoming where they worked the oil fields for an unknown
period of time.  Following their stay in Casper, Wyoming, Nathan Tompkins
KELLY
and his family moved  (Date unknown) to Artesia, New Mexico.  Laura Stateler
KELLY and Nathan Tompkins KELLY owned a farm, a milk cow, and raised a few
crops just outside of Artesia, New Mexico.  They resided on this farm with
their
youngest son, Luther James KELLY [my father].  until Nathan Tompkins KELLY
died on December 6, 1934. He is buried in Artesia, New Mexico.

Doratha Kelly PAINTER described her father, Nathan Tompkins KELLY, as a shy
man who found it difficult to express affection.  He was very quiet, but
enjoyed
watching picture shows.  Nathan Tompkins KELLY was very easy going and
many people owed him money, but never repaid him for the work he completed.
He drilled artesian water wells and even built a swimming pool in and around
Artesia.  He ran his business, but because he could not read or write, Laura
Marie Stateler KELLY, kept his books for him.

Laura Marie Stateler KELLY attended the First Christian Church in both
Findlay,
Ohio and Artesia, New Mexico.  Following her husband's death, she lived
periodically with each one of her children at their residences, until she
moved
in with her Daughter, Doratha KELLY PAINTER in Artesia, New Mexico.  Laura
Marie Stateler KELLY died on May 29, 1948 (possibly of gall bladder trouble).

Doratha KELLY PAINTER advised that she knew very little about her mother's
people (The Stateler's).  She was familiar with Charles STATELER (Son of
Philip
STATELER and Doratha Wells STATELER and a younger brother of Laura
Stateler KELLY).  Charles STATELER and his wife Renie STATELER gave birth
to a son (Royal STATELER) and three daughters (Alma STATELER, Esther
STATELER, and Ruth STATELER).  Most of the STATELER's lived in and
around Findlay and Fostoria, Hancock County, Ohio and Gilboa, Putnam County,
Ohio.  She remembered another of her mother's brothers, George W. STATELER,
and three (3) sisters (Florence L. STATELER, Nivada STATELER,  and Mary A. E.
STATELER)."

To date, this is the extent of my research on my STATELER -Line.  If any of
these
names sounds familiar to you or if I can be of any other service, please let
me know.

If anyone else has any information regarding any KELLY-line that married into
a
STATELER-Line or if you recognize this information please contact me.  Marva,
Who are your STATELER's?  I have some other STATELER information regarding
a John STATELER in this general area of Ohio, but it is minimal.  I am not sur
e
how he might be related to my line.

Thanks.

 I may have sent this in before, but as you know, hope springs eternal.  I'm
 looking for information on my paternal grandfather, Terry W. Kelly (Terrence
 William Kelly, I believe.) 

 He married my grandmother, Mary Fiskin, in Indianapolis, IN in 1892.  There
 they had two sons, Hugh William (1893) and Francis Terrence (1895.)  They
 next turn up in Cincinnati, Ohio where they had a third son, James Gordon
 (1901.)  On the birth record, the father is listed as "butcher."  Sometime
 shortly thereafter, Terry Kelly disappeared.  My father, the second son, did
 not have any memory of his father.  The other two sons died early leaving a
 son to James Gordon (James Kelly), and two sons and a daughter for Hugh
 (Richard, Robert and Ruth.) 

 I would be greatly appreciative if anyone could provide any information on
 this illusive grandfather.

 My Most Wanted Kelly is Terry W. Kelly (my fraternal grandfather.)  I believe
 that his full name is Terrence William Kelly.  He married my grandmother,
 Mary Fiskin, in Indianapolis, Indiana in 1892.  In 1893 they produced their
 first son, Hugh William Kelly.  In 1895 my father was born, Francis Terrence
 Kelly.  The family story is that sometime thereafter, Terry Kelly
 disappeared.  My grandmother took her little family to Cincinnati, Ohio in
 the belief that she would find him there; he was supposedly from Cincinnati. 
 The last official record I have been able to find is from 1901, the
 Cincinnati Health Dept.  It was the birth of a third son, James Gordon Kelly.
  The birth was recorded on a 3" X 5" file card.  It listed the father as T.W.
 Kelly, butcher.

 I have been looking for my Kelly antecedents for about 30 years, and would be
 delighted if someone were able to contribute to this search.
