Suspected My direct line


NOTE: So far no documentation of brothers/sisters of Hiram, but we know there were siblings, families lived close together, and clues have started flowing in. That is good.

Thanks and will put this up. Not the exact same family, but coincidentally close.
Coincidents:

 

1. My ggggmother was Mary Speer married to Patrick Stuart McGee and dau Mary Elizabeth McGee m my gggfather Hiram Kelly Burke County NC......they Kelly/McGee later owned land in Forsyth County GA. 
 
2. Hiram's/Elizabeth's oddest son was Joseph Kelly born about 1815 Burke County, GA.
 
3. Name Stewart plays in.
 
4. Sarah and Jesse were names of Hiram/Elizabeth children.....Jesse R. Kelly was my ggfather.
 
5. The other names and places do not play out in my records, but with so many coincidences, who knows.

By just going back from each nameIcould not get to Alexander, thoughIfound Marcus and Oscar alright. Jesse left a pile of kinfolks, though! Trying to get back to South Carolina has proved a bit tough, too.IguessIam clicking on the wrong name each time. How long have you been hunting Alexander? My folks go back to that same period and place and it is sometimes hard to separate them out of all the names.Ishall watch out for Kelly now whenIlook! MaybeIcan find Alexander that way!  Were your folks in Edgefield or Abbeville?Ilove hearing from someone with folks from the same place because you find out bits you would never know about otherwise! Right nowIam searching for Leroy Hodges to help out a gal who cannot go back further than him. So, if you run across Leroy holler, won't you? And, any PERRIN, of course!  Marty

I sent the second part of this message last night.  This while clearing the files accumulated on my deskIpicked up oa work sheet for Ellis/Kelly research in North Carolina in the 1790 Census of Iredell county.  Page 395 list a Solomon KELLY  with 2 males age 16 or older, page 397 Samuel Ellis1 male 16+, page 398 Joshua, Zepherian and Samuel Ellis all with 1 male  16 +.  Page 399 list James and Benjamin KELLY each with 1 male 16+ and 1 male under 16. In the earlier messageIdid not comment on the message from Mrs Steven Powell. Ido not have the notes in front of me and do not have time to check, butIrecall a discussion Don andIhad well over a year ago about Hiram Kelly a blacksmith, whoIbelieve was located in Old Fort after the Hiram  Kelly who is the focus of my research appeared in  census and other records in GA. Ihad also found other Hiram Kellys in my research.  My assumption is that Hiram may be a family name used in a number of generations. Some interesting statistics in my file from an Ancestry search for Kelly's in NC.

 [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.

Need info on the Kelley Family of Old Fort, North Carolina up to 1850.

He lived on Waters of Mill Creek, near the old Methodist Meeting House.
He later went to Union County, Georgia. Could his Father have been
Alexander Hamilton Kelley? Any information will be appreciated
 

 


I don't know yet if this will be helpful tying our lines from GA back
to  NC. Isuspect that the father of Joshua C Ellis may have been
William Ellis. Iam 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.  AsIrecall 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. Ialso checked the marriage books on the Burke County page and found Hiram Kelly and Elizabeth McGee listed.
WhenIchecked the brides index there are two other McGee brides who
could be Elizabeth's sisters.

While in Salt Lake CityItranscribed some GA deed records. Iam 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. Iwill study the copiesIhave for any clues and my next search will be for probate records.

While in Salt Lake,Ialso copied some AR  deed and probate records. The recordsIthinkIneed were not copied by LDS.  I'll check with the Genealogy Society in Madison County  about possible films of these books. Icopied 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. Idid find some recordsIhad not previously read. They provide dates and bits of family history.

I'll keep you posted asIfind new information. Ihave 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 whileIwas 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,Ithink 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 andIwill continue
searching for additional supporting information.

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

The other researchIrequested related to Elizabeth M (Kelly) Monroe,
daughter of Elizabeth and Hiram Kelly born about 1819 in Burke County,
NC. Iwas 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. Ibelieve 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, andImay even have some in my notes.  I
have not had time to review the file, butIwanted 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 untilIcan 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. Idid not
have opportunity to read my email whileIwas at the conference, and
ofcourse the household mail accumulated as well andIhave 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 informationIlocate
whenIcan snatch some time to go through my notes and files.

I thoughtIhad extracted the Owens in 1840 but Idon'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 andIbelieve Able Anderson were all in Cherokee County
1860 Hiram and Joseph Kelly, and Joshua Ellis were in AR Ihave read GA Census for 1860 but did not do extractions. Idon't have time to do more before leaving for AR.Iam not ready to say that Anna and Rebecca were sisters of Elizabeth McGee butIcan see it is possible.  Perhaps more evidence can be found. Iwonder 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.Ineed to print files and pack tomorrow. Ihope to stop in Salt Lake enroute to AR to check some films.  ItIcan find timeIwant to read some deed books in Madison County.Ineed to get some sleep, but Iwant to share this information whileIhave most of it in front of me.

 I almost think we are kin!  My people went from NC to GA or NC to TX
 then to AR--then to TX.

 Anyway, on Hiram, he was listed on the 1830 census for Habersham
 county.  No township was mentioned.  It was a federal census with ID #
 GA55993584

 There were 4 Hiram Kellys in NC from 1840 to 1870 that were on the
 census.  If it is the same Hiram, he seems to have purchased land in
 Fayetteville AR on 01 Feb 1860.  there show to be three instances of
 land purchase by this Hiram on that date at that location.

 In 1775, he was in the Snow Campaign under Col. Richardson and the following
 spring, he enlisted under a Lt. Taylor, Capt. Francis Boykin and Col. Thomson
 for a fiftour.  He was in the battle of Sullivan's Island.  In addition, he
 was at Savannah.  He volunteered for a second tour in the same unit and becam
 a scout.  After the fall of Charleston, he went to North Carolina and joined
 units there.  He was sent to Virginia during this nine-month tour. 
 Thereafter, he returned to South Carolina and was again a scout.  He was at

 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 evidenceIhave 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,Ihave
 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. Iplan 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.

 Pleasant Gardens is now located in McDowell Co., NC, being part of the
 land taken from Burke Co. in 1842 to form McDowell.  It is located about half
 way  between Old Fort and Marion on old Hwy. 70.

 On the 1790 Burke Co., NC census online, the group denoted as 1st
 Company are  those who were living in what is now the Pleasant Gardens area, first
 settled by "Hunting" John McDowell.

 Hope this helps you.

This site offet a lot of historical information about Burke County
Land.  WhenIchecked the Alpha listIdid find Hiram Kelly, and Patrick
S. McGee.  There is also an entry for William Ellis, whomIsuspect is
the father of Joshua C Ellis.  Isuppose 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 allIread, soIam 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 asIam 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, butIcould 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
County List.  If someone can check the land grants to determine the
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

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 familyIheard 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.
