E T Kell(e)y shows up in the 1840,1850 & 1860 census of Jasper Co., Mississippi, as being from Georgia. He lived in Mississippi and died in Louisiana. E T aka Emanuel (Twiggs or Tillman) depending on who you talk to, had 10 kids. 8 in Mississippi and the 2 Unknown in Texas, Alabama or Georgia. He married; 1st.Unknown, maybe in Alabama and, 2nd. Helen Myra Nicholson in Mississippi.
Children of ET; 1) Cornelia Elizabeth (1864-1944) 2) David Mitchell (1845-1904) 3) William Floyd (1846-1937) 4) George Washington (1848-1926) 5) John (1850-????) 6) James M ((1851-???) 7) Tom (1854-????) 8) Chester N (1857-????) 9) C M (1859-????) 10) Seaborn (1861-????)
Family legend has E T with 13 children, but I can only account for the 10 above. Most of his kids moved to Central La. (Bayou Chico). I am descended from George Washington, my ggg-father and I’m trying to improve the information I have on these relatives. My brick wall is this “Extra Terrestrial”, some of you Kell(e)y’s in Georgia, Alabama, Mars, or Pluto my be of some help. Please
I would be very interested in contacting any descendents from this family.
