South Carolina


South Carolina district ninety six (near border with Georgia) about the time of the Revolutionary War and after that the main judicial district of South Carolina. I asked for a list of soldiers with the Kelly surname who fought in the ninety six campaigns during that war. It seems many were loyalists. The direct family connection with any of these soldiers or militiamen is at this time unknown, but the many similarities in given (Christian) names in our direct line is noteworthy. Names like Giles, James, John, Andrew and Joseph are repeated in what we believe to be our direct line. I was somewhat surprised, and YES, distressed, to see so many Irishmen listed as Loyalists.

 

I assume right off that some of these names listed several times were duplicates of the same individual.

Subject: From NPS.gov: Revolutionary War in North Carolina

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

During the Revolutionary war based on land records 1780 - 1800 from Burke County, NC., we 'suspect' my Kelly ancestors lived near a place known then as Quaker Meadows in the county now known as Burke, NC. Land descriptions place them on a creek nearby.

Though they were in the middle of action we don't know if Kelly, Alexander or his brothers names unknown participated in battles there, Cowpens or Kings Mountain.

If Kelly's were there and most certainly they 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 Lafayette 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 unknown brothers.)


Yes..........far as we know or suspect: Alexander 1755 K&Q CO. VA, Hiram 1790 Burke CO. NC, Jessie 1833 Habersham CO. GA, Marcus 1855 Atlanta.

Just wondering if you know if any of your Kelly family came to the US.  I am related to a Kelley/Kelly married to a Goss lady.  I'll have to check to see who/where/when/etc.
 
My father was Stephen Pierce Kelley, son of Joseph Newton Kelley, son of Louis Pierce Kelley, son of James B. Kelley, son of William L. Kelley.  William was born in SC around 1782.  Have no clue as to his parents or sibs.  We do use both spellings in our family.  My people came to Texas from Ga. in the late 1800s. 
 
Would love to hear from you if there might be a link.

 Hi Pat,

 I have a Kelly family that seems very similar to yours, especially the
 "Fall

Of the many Kelly Clans of Ireland I am looking for is the one represented by

Walter Kelly and Wife Elizabeth from the village of Timahoe, Kildare, Ireland.

They came to the colonies with a Quaker Group abt. 1750, docked in South Carolina with four sons that were born in Timahoe, Kildare, Ireland.
1.  William Kelly b. abt 1726 d. abt 1776  in Kanawha VA; Greenbriar (Now WV)
2.  Timothy Kelly b. abt 1727
3.  Walter Kelly (Jr.) b. abt 1728 buried in Greenbriar WV (Not sure if it is Sr. or Jr.)
4.  Samuel Kelly b. abt 1730

After helping establish the Quaker Church in SC they, as a family unit sold their SC land and moved to western VA; Pittslyvania County, Greenbriar area, Kanawha River Valley area. 

There Walter Kelly was killed by Indians, about a year later William Kelly was killed by Indians. 

The families moved back to the Kershaw or Camden districts of SC.

Children of Walter Kelly (Jr.) I think:
1.  James Kelly b. abt. 1760 in Pittslyvania, VA d. 1840 in Maury, TN. (My Line).
2.  Jacob Kelly b. abt 1765 d. 1828 in Kanawha, WV
3.  Benjamin b. abt 1766 in VA
4.  Aaron Kelly b. abt 1770 d. abt 1854 in Kanawha, WV

I have two similar Kelly Files of the descendants of this Walter Kelly family and it is difficult to separate the brothers from the sons, from the nephews etc.

If any of this rings a bell I'd love to share info.  Maybe we can identify & clarify some of this genealogy mystery.

Thanks. glkelly@jscomm.net

  I saw in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram an obit for a very distinguished Raymond Boone Kelly, Jr. son of Katherine B. and Raymond B. Kelly, and father of Raymond Boone Kelly, III. Looked like family, but when I got home, I do not have a Raymond Kelly in my files. I do have a Henry Boone Kelly and a Harry Boone Kelly.

  Raymond B. Jr. was born in Dallas in 1922, raised in Fort Worth, graduated from Princeton in 1943 with B.S. in engineering, commissioned ensign USN until 1946, worked in oil industry, founded several companies, longest serving mayor of Westover Hills, TX from 1974-1988. Good man.

  My Kelly's came from Ireland to S. C., to VA, back to VA, then in the 1800's to Perry County, TN.  Does anyone know about this late Raymond Boone Kelly ?

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

 


Hi Don,

Cousins,

Below is a message I sent to a woman who was kind enough to send me some information about the Kellys of Madison Co., Alabama. I thought I would send it on to you because, who knows, someone out there might recognize some of these names. I'd be happy to answer any questions you might have about this. And I'm happy to share any information any of you might want.

Jim.

_____________________________________________

Kathy,

Thanks for your reply. I am really happy to have all that information that

you sent. Thank you. Most of that information was new to me, but I did find

it helpful.

After looking at the information you sent, I feel your John Kelly is not the

father of my Henry Kelly. They are probably in some way related, but I feel

that one less John Kelly on my list of possibilities is a good thing!

I know that Henry Kelly, who was born in South Carolina in 1796, is the son

of John Kelly because Henry was in the War of 1812, but was too young to

receive the bounty for his service. His father, John Kelly received it.

Since Henry enlisted at Huntsville in October 1813, I thought that John, who

died there in 1818 was worth researching.

Here's my theory. I know John is the father of my Henry. I feel Nelson Kelly

is the father of my John.

Nelson Kelly was born in Sussex Co., VA. ca. 1730. He married Elizabeth

Jeffries in Stafford Co. in 1751 and died in Bedford Co., TN. in 1815.

In 1790 there is one Kelly family in Sussex Co. This is John Kelly (I have

no idea, don't ask.).

Another clue I have is that my great grandfather is Samuel Odum Cleveland

Kelly. His daughter told me the names Odum and Cleveland are both family

names, but I've never found out where they come in. However....after a brief

(?) stay in Fairfax Co., VA., Nelson Kelly ended up in Wilkes Co., NC. This

is where he lived when he served in the Revolution. On the 1782 tax list of

Wilkes Co. are listed Larkin Cleveland, John Kelley, Jeremiah Cleveland,

John Cleveland and Nelson Kelley.

In 1790 Laurens Dist (Old 96) in South Carolina are found Reubin Kellogg,

Thomas Kellogg and Nelson Kellogg. This is actually Nelson and his sons. Is

my John living somewhere else (back in Sussex Co., VA???) or still unmarried

at home???

In 1800, Laurens Dist., SC. are Nelson Kelley, Peter Kelley, Thomas Kelley

and Ruebin Kelley. Also, six of the seven John Kellys in South Carolina that

year have a son in the household of the age to be my Henry. (Big help there,

huh?)

By the way, in both 1790 and 1800, there are Clevelands nearby. There is

also a Larkin Cleveland.

There is a John Kelly who is said to have been the first settler on Kelly's

Creek, which is on the Lincoln-Giles County line in Tennessee, just north of

Limestone Co., Alabama. He and Joseph Kelly record their marks on 27

February 1810. (John is first found there 26 April 1809.)In this same area,

there is a Caperton Kelly mentioned several times. I noticed that name in

the information you sent. Joel Kelly was also in the area. Assuming these

are all the same John Kelly, in Lincoln Co., he was a Justice of the Peace,

a lawyer and even owned a tavern. On his inventory, which was made in

Lincoln Co., TN. on 7 May 1818, he is listed as John Kelly, Sr. Among the

several books he owned was a Bible. (What I wouldn't give to find that!)

Names mentioned in this inventory are a hundred dollar note on Charles

Cavenaugh and Joseph and Nancy Kelly, the administrators. Eli Garrett had a

hand in seeing that the estate was settled. (Nelson Kelly's son William

married into his family.

In Bedford Co., TN., the first name listed on the church register of Newhope

Baptist Church, dated 1 April 1809 is Nelson Kelly. Reuben is there, too

along with several Kelly women. There is a later list of church members

dated 2 November 1811, but the list was added to and there is no way to know

when each name was listed. On this list are: Nelson Kelly who is listed as

dead. (He died in 1813.) Reuben Kelly is also listed as dead. (He died in

1815.) Beside John Kelly, it says "Escd." Beside his wife, who is just

listed as "and wife" is written "dead". Later, beside John Kelly is written

"restored".

I find a Larkin Cleveland all the way to Alabama, too. I can't help but feel

he fits in somewhere.

Now, to answer your question about the siblings of my Henry, in Limestone

Co., AL. is found the will of Thomas Kelly, who died in 1833. The will was

written 2 October 1833 and it was probated 14 October 1833. His widow,

Elizabeth was still living. Thomas' daughter, Matilda had Robert Austin, Jr.

as her guardian in 1835. She married William Wilkerson in 1836 in Limestone

Co.

Thomas' daughter, Louisa was the key. In 1835, Robert Austin, Jr. was her

guardian, but in 1837, her uncle, Henry Kelly was her guardian.. She married

Lorenzo D. Cox in 1838 in Limestone Co. Thomas' other children are Elizabeth

and John (of course!). I don't know what became of them. Joseph is linked

with Henry's family, too and John, who was in Limestone Co. in1820, is just

thought to be his brother. I guess it's possible that this is John Sr., but

if the John Sr. who died in Lincoln Co. in 1818 is Henry's father, then this

is more than likely his brother.

Oh, and I forgot to mention that Henry Kelly was in Capt. Charles

Cavanaugh's company in the War of 1812. (Remember that name from John Kelly

of Lincoln Co.?)

My biggest problem with John Kelly of Lincoln Co. being the father of my

Henry is this. Nelson Kelly always signed his name with an X. Henry Kelly

seems to have always done the same. John Kelly could read, write, was

possibly a lawyer and a justice of the peace. Would a man that educated come

from someone who could not write and have children who could not? I know

illiteracy was common in those days, but one man being educated doesn't seem

to fit (at least not in my mind). Please, feel free to set me straight on

this point!

Henry Kelly and his first wife, who is unknown, only had one child that is

known, my great-great grandfather, John Nelson Kelly. (There's that name

Nelson--and John--again!) He was born in Alabama ca. 1822. His mother was

living in 1830, but died in Limestone Co. AL. soom after that as Henry Kelly

moved to Giles Co.,TN. where he married his second wife, Mahaly Smith in

1835. His third wife, the mother of John Nelson Kelly's first wife, was Mrs.

Luvicy Hunter, the widow of Jesse Hunter who died in Limestone Co. AL. in

1824. She was Cherokee and is known in my family by her Indian name, "Flower

Hunter".

I hope this isn't too confusing. I am sure I left something important out,

so if you have any questions, please ask. Again, thank you for the

information you sent. I know I will be able to put it to good use. And if

you have any clues for me after reading this, please pass them along.

Thanks for your help,

Jim.

 Hi,
 I was coincidentally updating my bibliographical files with info from the
 Marietta, Georgia library and five minutes ago ran across an Edmond Kelly in
 the Roster of South Carolina Patriots in the American Revolution by Bobby
 Gilmer Moss, Genealogical Publishing Co., Inc, Baltimore, 1983. The entry is;
 Kelly, Edmond       R5840 (Nat'l Pension Claim #)
 d. 6 October 1842 (age nearly 100)
 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
 Gate's defeat.  Audited Account in the SC archives 4198B.

 The 1800 SC census lists an Edmund Kelly in the Newberry District pg 81 males
 00201 Females 00001.

 Abraham Kelly. He appears on the 1800 Census for Fairfield Co SC. He
 died in Keshaw Co SC in 1823. He was a Revolutionary soldier who
 received a pension. I am searching for his wife or possibly wives. One
 Rebecca Stokes d. in  Kershaw Co SC in 1825 and refers to her
 "father-in-law" Abraham Kelly. However the only person that I know she
 married was Samuel Stokes. He d. in 1803, Kershaw Co SC. They had
 three sons Abraham Stokes, John Stokes and Daniel Stokes. WAS she
 married first to a Kelly or did she mean "father-in-law" in the sense
 that today we would mean "step-father"?

Hello everyone. I'm new to this list (I've been a member of the KELLEY list
for a while) and hope someone out there can help me.

I am seeking info on Elias (Elisha?) Kelly and Marianne Jennie Weeks
(Meeks?). They were married, possibly in SC, because their son Marion
Samuel Kelly was born there. Their son, Marion Samuel Kelly,  married Julia
V. Inman. Here's what I have on them:

Marion Samuel Kelly
Born: 1843
Where: South Carolina
Married: 1866
Died: 1889
Where: Madison County, AL

Julia V. Inman
Born:1850
Where: Missouri
Died: 193?
Where: Madison County, AL
2nd Spouse:R.W. "Dick" Carmichael Glover
Married- l - 16- 1892

Marion and Julia were the parents of my great grandfather Joel Samuel
Kelly, who was married to Delilah Glover:

Joel Samuel Kelly
Born: 10-12-1868
Where: Madison County, AL
Married: 11-19-1885
Died: 6-14-1939
Where: Gorman, TX

Delilah Glover
Born: 1-27-1869
Where: Madison County, AL
Died: 2-19-1952
Where: Madison County, AL

I have info on all generations after Joel and Delilah, but have reached a
brick wall with Elias and Jennie. Any help would be appreciated. Also, if
you are related to any of these folks, drop me a line. I'd love to hear
from you.

I am seeking information of JOEL KELLY who lived in Pickens District SC in the early 1800's now Oconee County. He was born about 1800 in ? to ??? and married Barbary Phillips. They had four children: George Washington Kelly born 1838, Marianne (Molly) 1839, Levi Waddell 1840 and Reuben 1843, all born in SC. In the 1850 Census - Barbara Kelly was head of household, and the family records say "he was killed in a wagon accident when the children were young". Would appreciate hearing from anyone who knows where Joel came from and to whom he was born. Hope to hear from you soon. Thanks most sincerely, Evelyn

Does anyone know anything about the following Kellys in the 1800 Lexington District SC census? Appears to be a family unit.
Mouth of Saluda page 572 #656 - Elizabeth Kelly #657 - William Kelly #658 - Samuel Kelly
Elizabeth is older than William, William is older than Samuel, so it appears to be a Kelly family unit. Does anyone have any info on this Kelly family?
