Martha Ann Ranshaw was born in Jo Daviess Co., IL, the daughter of James RANSHAW and Caroline MURDION (DC). Morton states she was born a farm near Winslow, Stephenson, IL, and was the daughter of William and Clarissa RENSHAW. The marriage certificate also lists William and Clarissa RENSHAW as her parents (m. July 25, 1861 by J.P. Eaton - B. Williams). In any case, she was living in WI when she met and married Absalom KELLEY (Annals of Iowa). She was living on the Kelley farm when the 1860 census was taken. Their first child, Amy Catherine, was a seven month baby. Her
husband's obituary states she was a native of Monroe WI, which could imply long residence. Her d-i-law, Julia Barth Kelley, nursed her during her final illness from Christmas 1917 until her death in February (M.A. Kelly obit). She lived to be 77. The funeral was held at home Sabbath, 3 Feb 2 o'clock. Rev. S.M. McConnell and Dr. Geo. Baker presiding. Cause of death: cancer of liver (DC).
