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.

 ADA PHONE BOOK FOR KELLY


I am looking for a Jewell Marie Kelly born to parents: Emmett Thomas Kelly/Lillian Castle/Kelly/(Frank Harold McGinnis). She was born in Oklahoma in or about 1915 and has two brothers, Joe Kelly, and Patrick Daniel Kelly, my beloved father. She was married to an Olen Cates for a very long time, has two sons and died as a widow. I know that when Olen died-she re-married but died shortly afterwards at an early age of about 56. Any help would be so appreciated.
God bless

HI All,
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
census reads:
John Kelley 62
Catherine 58
Edward 25
Frank 18
George 15
Harry L 11
In the 1860 Census:
John Kelly 58
Catherine 47
William 17
Edward 15
James 12
Frances 9
Geo. 5
Harry 2
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.
Thanks Peggy

Hello All,

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.

Thank you.

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  Howard's daughter Susan sent me information on this family, but the email address she used is no longer valid.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:
1920
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+.

1930
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.

Don,

I had a classmate, a girl named  Pat Kelly.  I have her email
address I think.   A quick look in the 1999 Telephone book shows a
few families there now.  I scanned the section for you.  The area
code now is 580 should you want to call.  If you like, I'll try to
contact Pat too.

 Don,

 I am trying to find her email address to forward your notes, or one
 you might want to compose.  Did this note mean to say that
 someone traveled from ADA, OK?

 If you'd like to compose a note I can forward to her ( IF I find the
 address!) please send it to me.  I don't think she'd mind if I gave her
 address to you, but I'd better ask.

 I found some more names Spelled "Kelly".

Any help would really be appreciated.

Here is my most wanted Kelley's 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 Owen 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

I am a Kelly and I have reading all of the posting on both Kelly and
Kelley mailing list rings on this rootsweb for many months I have been
unable to connect My Fathers family with any of the posting or on any sites.

please let  me know.

My father's name was Charles Gray Kelley, his father Brinkley Kelley, his mother Bess Gray. Brinkley's father Joe Kelly, mother Emma?
Charles Gray Kelley had a brother Claud, sister Mamie Jo Kelley Harris, sister Joyce Kelley Jackson.
My parents were married in Atoka, OK about 06/03/42. I was born in Hugo, OK 06/20/43. My father served in the US Navy during WWII.
Perhaps someone on the list can shed some light on the history of these people.
