James KELLY200 was born in Ireland. He died.

Spouse: Unkn ARCHIBALD. Unkn ARCHIBALD and James KELLY were married in Ireland. Children were: Archibald KELLY.


James KELLY died. Parents: Archibald KELLY and Margaret DUNSEATH.


James KELLY Sr42,103 was born in August 1756 in Kilkenny, Ireland.42,103 He died after 1840 at the age of 84 in Cooper Co., MO. DEA: est fr 1840 Cooper Co MO; alt yod abt 1840 in Cole Co., MO.
1790-8: James Kelley was in Russell Co., VA (part of which later became
Shenandoah and Tazewell Cos). In Jul 1798, he and his wife, Susannah,
sold 40 acres in Russell Co., VA.
1806: res Chillecothe, Ross Co., VA.
1815-25: approx. dates of residence in Pike Co., OH. Squatter's
homestead, no apparent record of land ownership. Resided near Piketon,
Beaver Creek (two different residences?)
2 sons b. 1800-1810. 2 lvg. 1830 1 lvg. 1840.
The KELLY family came to America from the North of Ireland in Colonial times (Annals of Iowa, 83). According to his grandson, Ab Kelley in an interview with Markham Morton, "Jas. Kelly was born in Ireland (can't give dates); married Rose Keiser, and had a large boat. His business was to carry goods from New Orleans up the Mississippi River and its northern tributaries. He kept his boys with him on the boat" (Morton, 4). He was a distiller and a steamboat operator on the Ohio and Mississippi rivers
(Morton, 16).

From Revolutionary War Pension Application Index: Kelley, James 971466 S16903 b. Aug 1756.
Landed in America 1773. Enlisted Greenbriar Co. 1777
Served 3 yrs. as a private. Enlisted 1780-81. Afterward lived in VA, K Y,
TN. In 1820 he moved to MO. Applied for pension 9 May 1833 in Cooper Co, MO.
According to family tradition, all of the Kelley boys fought in the
Revolutionary War (Morton, 16). However, I have not found the evidence to back this up. The information in the pension file is from James' granddaughter, Neda Bell.
Neda Bell states in a letter found in James Kelley's Revolutionary War
pension file, that James had 16 ch. from before and after 1800,
and Malvina Martin's obit (dau. of Joseph) stated he had
eight sons and eight daughters. Neda's list of children includes: Kate
(Kelly) Tyler, Mordecai, Joseph, Charles, James, Samuel, Betty, Polly,
Mary, Nancy, Esther and Jessie.
The children whose birthdates are known were born over 30 yrs., so
probably was more than one wife involved. There is quite a gap "between
the oldest daughter Gency (b. 1785) and Samuel (b. 1798) which contains
the names of boys who never married and lived most of their lives among
the native Ohio Indians. This connection with the natives has never been made very clear, although there is much evidence to substantiate it.
Frances O'Meara wrote in 1951, "Rose Kaiser was a full-blooded Miami
Indian. The family spoke the language. One son Charles was living with
the Indians at the time of his death. The Indians would come to Sam
Kelly's home and shoot chickens with their bows and arrows"
(Morton, 19 ).

This was a private 'General Family Newsletter' done by Markham and Frances (Squires) Morton ending abt 1974...
It was financed through contributions from all Morton descendants who were interested in getting it. I rcd 2 issues:
Vol 6, #1 Jan 1973, and Vol 6 #3 Dec 1973. It then ceased arriving.
In the newsletter was information about any Morton's (and descendants) who wished to supply said information.
Generally it was about family 'history', ie: births, deaths etc. The writers were always trying to find out the history of the ancestors of each Morton---The writers apparently toured the US looking for and interviewing all Morton's they could locate.

DEA: aft 1847, as he is named an heir to his brother's estate.
The information collected on James KELLEY seems to be from two different men, prob. father and son.
He is described as the son of Widow Rose Kelly, who went to Texas (F.L. Slavens History, 1971 ed.).
"According to Bingham 1877:207 James Kelly came to Jordan Twp in 1839-40 with brother Absolum - and was one of the heirs to his estate in 1847. We do not know when he died or where he is buried" (Morton, 36). "During August and September, 1835, a large number of settlers arrived and found homes in this town among them were: O.J. White, William Bowen, William Baird, Mathew,William and Peter Wells, Joseph and James Kelly and


Judge Jacob Andrick. (O.J. White was from IL,as was William Bowen, J. Andrick was from IN) "James Kelly was a single man. He remained here until a short time before the war, when he went to Montana where he died. Joseph Kelly settled with his family on section 3 and 4, where he lived for a number of years." (History of Green Co WI, 769)
Morton states he married Malinda Radar (same name as bro. Joseph's wife , so very unlikely). Inherited land from his uncle, Darby Kelly, on 20 Sep 1830. A James Kelley is recorded in the Pike Co 1820 census in Beaver Twp (18-25), with a wife (16-25), and 2 daughters under 10 yrs of age. This could also be the same James Kelley recorded in the 1830 Pike Co census, who's household consists of a female the same age (20-30), 2 daus 10-20, one dau 5-10, and two more under 5 yrs. There is a son 5-10 and another under 5 yrs.
1838 Green Co WI State Census: 1 male. He possibly came alone to settle and later sent for his family. 1842, 1840, 1846 WI Censuses: 8 males, 2 females 1847 6 males and 2 females another marriage possibility: m. Barbara LEACH (b. 1804-6 IA) in 1849.
James KELLEY is still alive in 1871, living with his stepson, Archibald LEACH in Fountain Co., IN.

Assumed to be the eldest, but doesn't appear as such in Pike Co OH 1820 Census. 1830 census for Pike Co OH lists a James Black in Beaver Twp (50-60 yrs), wife (30-40, off for assumed birth year), and children. His father, Hugh Black (90-100 yrs.) is listed on the next line. Kelly Cem: "Jincy Black died Nov 3, 1847 aged 62 yrs." Although it places her birth year as 1785, her death date does not agree with the date of the following deed transaction. The Gen Index Vol A #2 (620, 621) at the Green Co Courthouse contains a deed relating to 13 1/2 acres of land (NE 1/4 of SW 1/4 Sec1 Twp 1N; R6E) she inherited from her younger brother Absolum Kelly on 28 Jan 1848. Sussana Black bought 13 1/2 acres for $70 from her mother Jincy Black, and on the same day sold it to Mordecai Kelly, Sr for $30. Jincy signed with an X as she could not write.

"Joseph Kelly was born in Pike County, Ohio. When a boy he went to
Indiana, where he remained until 1835. He then came to Green County. He was a bold a daring man, without fear for anything, and accumulated a large property. He was for many years among the mountains of California.
In 1856 he went to Charles City, Iowa, where he at present resides. He
owned the site and was the founder of Charles City. (The History of Green Co, 965)
Malvina Kelley Martin's obit states she was the oldest of ten ch., but
only eight are known. Perhaps the other two are the infants commemorated on the base of a birdbath on the Kelley plot in Riverside Cemetery: "Our babies Edith & Helene."
TIMELINE: 1827 went to IN, where he married Melinda (Malvina Kelly Mart in obit). abt 1829-1829 res. near Perrysville, Vermillion Co IN, where he remained until abt 1835-1835.
"During August and September, 1835, a large number of settlers arrived and found homes in this town among them were :
O.J. White, William Bowen, William Baird, Mathew,William and Peter Wells, Joseph and James Kelly and Judge Jacob Andrick. (O.J. White was from IL, as was William Bowen, J. Andrick was from IN) "James Kelly was a single man. He remained here until a short time before the war, when he went to Montana where he died. Joseph Kelly settled with his family on section 3 and 4, where he lived for a number of years." (History of Green Co WI, page 769)

1845 Sep elected county coroner (The History of Green Co, 769).
Served as coroner 1845- 6.
1848 Nov elected coroner.
1845 landlord of first tavern in Monroe.
The Tavern: It was first put up by John Walling. It stood on the north
side, two lots from the west corner. It was an extensive building for
those days, being two stories high, and containing a number of rooms. It
was opened as a tavern by the proprietor. He was succeeded by Joseph
Payne, and the latter by Joseph Kelly as landlord. It was known as "Kelly
Tavern." It was then closed for a time, and subsequently opened by Thomas
Gillette, after whom came Willard Payne. This tavern, while it was open
to the public, was the favorite place of resort for all this region, and
almost every evening, in pioneer days, the bar room was the scene of
rehearsal of all the events that had transpired, and an exchange of news
and gossip" (History of Green Co WI, 924).
"Near the residence of Mr. Clark (Alfred) was erected the first frame
house between Freeport and Madison, and it was built by Joseph Kelly. The
lumber was drawn from Galena, and it was used for a hotel" (The History of
Green Co, 780).
The hotel was built in 1843 by John Walling. Before finishing it he sold
it to Joseph Payne. In the spring of 1845 the property was transferred to
Joseph Kelly, who "built an addition to the hotel and improved its
appearance generally. In connection he erected a feed stable, and
continues in the hotel business there for eleven years, when the property
was sold to Willard Payne, and afterward gave way to more pretentious
buildings, and was moved back from the north side of the square. It is now
occupied partly as a dwelling house and partly as a store house (The
History of Green Co, 931).
He made regular trips to New Orleans with ox teams, bringing back sugar
and supplies for the hotel (Malvina Kelly Martin obit).
1850 visited IA. Some sources state he came with oldest son Charles, but
this seems unlikely as he was only 12 years old at the time. However,
Charles Kelley concurs in a 1910 interview and gives some details of the
trip made.
"When I was a mere boy on the verge of my teens. We rode out
here in a strong buggy after a lively pair of roadsters, covering the 60
miles between Monroe and Dubuque in one day" (Chs Cty Press 14 Aug 1954 ).
Joseph first settled in Janesville, about 35 miles south of Charles Cit y.
At the time it was the only settlement along the west side of Red Cedar
Valley. It was also called "Kelly's Settlement" and "Lower Big Woods."
Exploring the valley, he discovered a site near the Red Cedar River (where
the McKinley School stood until May 1968), which near a Winnebago Village
of some 150 tepees led by chief White Cloud. He was the first white
settler in what is now Charles City. He chose the site because of the
water power and the timber. He secured the deed to the site at the land
office in Dubuque 7 Nov 1850. This was the first patent entered in Floyd
Co. The second patent was entered exactly one year later by Asa Brown
(the Brown, Kelly, Morton and Partlow families migrated as a group across
the country, his dau was Thos Morton's second wife).
An anecdote from the newspaper gives an idea just how isolated this land
was at the time from other settlements: The clerk pointed out that the
land was in the middle of nowhere. The exchange is supposedly as follows.
He said to James Kelley, "Why man alive, do you know where this land is ?"
Mr. Kelly replied, "I believe I do." "Well," said the officer, "it is
worthless to you; it is clean out of the world." "No matter, I will take
it," Kelly replied as he walked off with the receipts (Waterloo Sun.
Courier). The land had abundant game - bears, deer, buffalo and elk.
There were thousands of prairie chickens. They often settled in Joseph
Kelley's yard (Charles City Press 6 Dec 52)
The family removed to Floyd Co in 1854. Kelley, however returned in the spring 1851 after wintering in WI. His first cabin was "on the spot where the Christian church now
stands" next to a heavily wooded tract. The cabin, the mill log dam and
hotel were located on the north side of the river. John Blunt arrived in
1852 with some 25 other families. Before that there were only three
families in the area (History of Floyd Co IA, 668)
1854/6 rest of family moved to IA. The Kelly's kept the main hotel in
Charles City also. (M.K. Martin obit). "The original town plot of St.
Charles (now Charles City) was dedicated by Joseph Kelly and Melinda
Kelly, his wife, in an article dated Sept. 22, 1854 . . . "
His son Charles, for whom he named the town, was only 14 or 15 when he came with
his family from Wisconsin. His father though "that a boy courageous
enough to go out thus into an unknown and an unbroken land out to be
remembered, he called the 'ford' Charlestown, in his honor" (History of
Floyd Co IA, 669). The saw mill began operation in 1854 (Chs Cty Press 6
Dec 1952). Kelley started a gristmill in 1855/6, which served customers
from up to 130 miles away (Waterloo Sun. Courier)
A 1858 circular describes the growing settlement of Charles City which had
at that time more than 100 houses, one schoolhouse, two schools, an almost
completed stone courthouse, two large hotels, a water powered flour and
saw mill, a steam saw mill, two lath mills, ten stores, as well as a
newspaper and printing office (Charles City Press 6 Dec 1952).
Joseph owned the hotel on the corner of Main and Clark. His son-in-law ,
Charles Haskell, ran it. It burned to the ground along with all the
other buildings between Clark and Kelly Streets on October 23, 1862
(Charles City Press 14 Aug 1954).
He was evidently quite a character. He somehow managed to domesticate
four young elk. He hitched up the team to his wagon, which scared the
bejesus out of his neighbors. Once, some dogs chased one of the elk right
into a house (Waterloo Sun. Courier).
His son describes a buffalo hunt Joseph went on soon after arriving in IA
(1850-2?): "I recollect that father left me for a time to my own
resources that season to participate in a buffalo hunt up Clear Lake way
and beyond, being accompanied by Rufus Clark and others. They were gone
for six weeks, and returned with the carcasses of five buffalo and several
elk as trophies of the hunt. In addition to those, father brought along a
live elk he had captured,which we took to Monroe with us that fall"
(Charles City Press 14 Aug 1954).
Joseph went to CA (prob. Oakland) for a while, but eventually returned to
Charles City (Charles City Press 14 Aug 1954).
The land for the downtown Central Park, on the north side of the river,
was donated by Joseph Kelley. He also deeded the site where the county
courthouse now stands to the city. Kelly St. and Blunt St. run parallel
one block apart and intersect Main St. in Charles City.

Mordecai married at the fairly young age of 21. Catherine was then about
18 years old.
Abt 1835, came to Green Co., with 3 children and bro's Joseph and James
(James and Joseph are recorded in the 1836 census for Green Co, but
Mordecai is not). It took them three weeks to travel from Danville, IL to
Monroe, WI, driving 2 yoke of oxen and a 'prairie schooner.' They first
lived in a log cabin where the city hall/courthouse now stands. It was
known as Spring Square and a creek ran through the property known as
Thunder River (source: Mrs. Kate Kelly Tyler, a g-dau., see Morton, 41 ).
According to Amy Kelley Morton, she was seven years old when eight
families left Vermillion Co., on 3 May 1836. They arrived in present day
Monroe, on 24 June. Each family brought two yoke of oxen, to cows and sixto ten pigs and whatever household goods would fit in the wagon. Theypassed through Rockford and Freeport on the way.
Mordecai's brother, Joseph, apparently went to WI first. Another brotherhad been up the year before (1835) to give him a hand. They took over arecently vacated cabin and rented 40 acres from Jarvis Rattan, whichincluded the square and the northern part of Monroe. Some of the land wasalready plowed under and a garden was planted. To the south was densewood. Three other families lived in Monroe at the time: Joseph Payne,George McFayden and Jacob Andereck.
The original log cabin was only 14 ft. sq., and stands where fire house
No.1 was located (in 1915). It was "so small there was only room for one
bed and a trundle bed, which was pushed under the other during the day topermit performance of the regular household duties. Indians were numerousthat year, and the following year they carried water from the spring,after which Spring Square was named, to make an ice pond on which theyskated in their moccasins." They stayed in the cabin about three years ,then moved west of town to the farm which Alfred Kelly later inherited
(Monroe Times).
"There were many Indians around here that first year, and we children were in great fear of them but they did not molest us. Wild turkeys, deer andother kinds of wild game was most plentiful and was about the only kind ofmeat we had (Monroe Times)."
1 May 1845, Mordecai bought a quarter section (40 acres) of WI territoryland at $1.25 per acre from the U.S. land office at Mineral Point. Thedeed was made on buckskin. The land stayed in the family for 105 yearsduring which time it was never mortgaged. A quiet (quick?) claim deed wasexecuted 25 Nov 1891, by the heirs of Mordecai in favor of son Alford.When Alford died in July of 1936, it went to his daughter, Plete Murphy ofFreeport IL, who sold it on 14 Mar 1950, to Harry Williams (see front page Monroe Times 25 Aug 1951)
"The log cabin built on these 40 acres in 1847 serves as an inn with 7
beds to accommodate travelers on the old Racine to Dubuque Road.
Seventy-six people stopped in one week - en route to the gold rush at
Pikes Peak in Colorado. Uncle "Ab" Kelly was the first white child born
in Monroe, Wisconsin, and Uncles Alf and Mordecai had the first stove inBrowntown. They sold sugar out of a barrel. The town was named for theBrown brothers who had the first post office and owned the first millthere. Flour was ground on the 'big stones.' I was about 6 years old
when we boarded the men that laid the Milwaukee railroad tracks. I can
see that big black engine come in just as far as the track had been laid.
My father, who was a mason by trade, was appointed postmaster at Browntownon 15 June 1886. (source: Kate Kelly Tyler, see Morton, 41)
"At his large farm home many travelers were entertained, and for many
years his place was the rallying place for parties; dancing being a
favorite, though not very frequently indulged amusement. Mr. Kelly and
his family were noted for their hospitality, and the belated traveler felt
himself fortunate when he came in sight of the Mord. Kelly place in thoseold times" (M. Kelley obit).
Just one year after Catherine's death he remarried. Eliza Wells was an
old family friend. He was then 78 and she was 73. They were married
five years. He died one day before their fifth anniversary.
Died after a protracted illness at the age of 83 in the old Kelley cabin
home near Monroe. Funeral services took place at the M.E. Church on Tuesa.m., Rev. Nuzum delivered the discourse (M. Kelley obit).

MORDICAI BRUSH WITH THE LAW:

Mordecai evidently got a little upset one evening. Newlyweds Joseph
Morton and Libbie Gorton, who were staying at the house, were being
"charivaried" by a sleighload of their friends. After making some threats, which were ignored, Mordecai fired a few shots. Libbie's brother Augustus(only 12) was killed and two other boys were wounded. Mordecai turned himself in and was apparently indicted for murder but was never tried. The shooting occured in Monroe 25 Feb 1871. Court records and newspaper accounts would be interesting to look at.
