My Kelly family came from Ireland about 1700. The family bible they brought was made in London and sold in Dublin.

As there are many Kelly/O'Kelly families in Ireland, we have no proof which one we actually belong to.

They came to Charlestown about 1700 and lived in The Carolinas. The first census they were found in was 1790 when they lived in Burke County, NC.

In about 1820 they moved to Habersham County, GA and from there to Atlanta, GA where my great grandfather attended medical school. His father Hiram Kelly had moved to NW Arkansas in 1849, so after graduation he joined his father and was practicing physician for many years.

Around 1895 he died in Goshen, AR and was buried in the Goshen Cemetery on land he had previously donated to the local Methodist Church for member burial purposes. In addition to being a doctor, he was a business owner and postmaster of the post office at the front of his store. He was also a Minister of the Goshen Methodist Church which still stands next to the cemetery.  

When he was ill before he died, he donated his Law and Medical Libraries to the University of Arkansas at Fort Smith, Arkansas, a place where he often lectured.

We all have eight or more grandparents we are looking for. This is my Beebe family. Our first Beebe in Colonial America came from Northamptonshire England in 1650 and settled in New London, CN.

When people started migrating west, the Beebe family moved to Ohio then in 1850 to Iowa. Milton Beebe was the first elected Sheriff for Shelby County.

Here is one of his sons, Cornelius Alvero Beebe. His wife was Mary Elizabeth Williamson Beebe, born in Shelby County, IA, the daughter of Charles Chawnsey Williamson, a priest of The Revived LDS Church.

To the right is my Grandmother Floy Mabel Beebe Pruitt as a young girl. Excepting Rosie on the left who died in 1905, all of these folks died in my lifetime.

 

My family started in 1972. Then it was visiting libraries and phone calls.

It is a lote easier now.

I have been a member of the AB twice. In each intance I listened and voted the voice of the State Coordinators or the CC's, in votes before the AB.

I shall properly represent the voices of my district again. Trust me on that vow.

Thank you for voting me into this place of trust and honor. I appreciate your votes.
