When grandfather Kelly died 1937 in LaJunta, CO two children went to Colorado to bury him. A daughtor who lived in Kansas City, KA and a son who lived in Ada OK. I never met either of them, but hope their children will see this and contact me.
The following photographs list the Kelly/Kelley surname by telephone number in Ada, OK. I don't know when these records were made.

or about 1915 and has two brothers, Joe Kelly, and Patrick Daniel Kelly, my

Subject: John Kelley
I am researching The Reagan family and have found that my George Reagan had
a half brother by the name of John Kelley. He was a lumber dealer from
Philadelphia listed in the directories from 1850 to 1870 on Catharine Street. The
Co. in 1870 was called Kelley and Sons, John, William and Edward. The 1870
John Kelley 62
Harry L 11
In the 1860 Census:
John Kelly 58
Both census' have him listed as a lumber dealer. Can't find him in any other
census' although he has to be there because he is in the directory. Now the
big question. Does this family look familiar to any one? If so please contact
me. I am hoping to find a connection to my George Reagan and his ancestors.

I use to communicate with a Kathy Kelly, yet now seem to have lost her.
I have new information on the Kellys which I know she would appreciate.
If anyone knows her, would you please ask her to email me.
This weekend I again attempted to contact Howard B Kelly, g-grandson of Thomas Grover Kelly. Howard's daughter Susan sent me information on this family, but the email address she used is no longer valid.
Data from Susan:
Poteau and Mayes County Oklahoma and Sebastian and Benton County Arkansas.
Thomas Grover Kelly, b. ca 1885, died 1946 in Ada, OK, married Florence Ellen Wallace. Their children were Howard Roland, Hilda Mae and Elizabeth Francis.
Susan is the grandaughter of Howard Roland.
My recent 1920 & 1930 Census search found:
Thomas H Kelly age 34, residing in Apple Glenn Township, Benton County, AR
Thomas G. Kelly, age 35, residing in Upper township, Sebastian County, AR with wife Florence age 36; son Howard 12; daughters: Hilda 9, and Elizabeth 4; and son Thomas G age 1+.
Thomas H Kelly 44, residing in Apple Glenn Township, Benton County, AR, with wife Zola, and sons Albert and Howard.
Tom Kelly age 56 residing Pryor, Mayes County OK
Tom G Kelly age 44 born AR, residing in LeFlore Poteau County OK. ED 26 (Page 4A Line 15 dwelling 85, family 86) his wife Florence E age 44, daughter Hilda age 19, and son Thomas Jr age 11. The street name is written on the census but I could not read it.
Susan's information indicated Thomas Grover Kelly died in Ada, OK 1946. She listed his wife as Florence Elizabeth Wallace. I don't know if there is any online access to OK death records. I'll check, that may provide more information. I did not find any military connection for this Thomas G Kelly listed on Ancestry.
I have a full schedule for the remainder of this week. I doubt I can manage to do any additional research before the weekend. I did send a message to a friend, who has a connection to the Library in Fort Smith and ask her to suggest some on line resources I can for that area. I have other relatives who were in Fort Smith at various times.

I know very little about him.He was born Sept.1,1851 in Miss. Word is the family settled around Natchez.He married Margrette Milinda Eggar. She was born in TX.They lived in Oklahoma and around Wheeler Co., TX.Any help would really be appreciated.Donna Carbonari
Lamar County Texas and possibly in Oklahoma and Arkansas.
Here is my most wanted Kelleys or Kelly
The name he went by in Oklahoma was Thomas Kelly, but his real name is
supposed to be William Mandrew Thomas Kelly DOB unknown death was-5-1947
1st wife Pearl Leoner Owens DOB 6-15-1882 to 1-1-1919 died with child.
they had three children 2 Girls Eulah, 11-5-1903 to 5-19-1977, Mable
4-30-1913 death unknown at this time.
1 son Harvey Benjamin 4-28-1910 to-15-1967
after the death of pearl, W.M.Thomas Kelley dropped one of the e's and
went to Kelly.
A story was told to the youngest son of Harvey's on Harvey's death
bed.That Thomas was running from the law in 2 states. The 1st State is
unclear he thinks it was either Alabama or Mississippi. I haven't been
to place him in either state. The 2nd State he supposedly ran in to
was in Kentucky. Then Harvey said they went to Ark. That is were Pearl is
buried, ( so this would have been around 1919) then moved on in to
and that is where Harvey made his home. However, W.M.Thomas Kelly married
Thrasher and they moved on to Texas and that is where both girls lived
lives and died.
If this rings any bells let me know.
