Greetings Nicholas I got your message and we are on the same family, but what i am looking for is the birth place of John was he baptised in any church in yorkshire it is a big area. What town was it if you know?
As to the william Kell from upper Michigan. I think he has passed away by this time but I think he had a son also named William who should be middleaged by this time.
Do you have the Berry Canada branch family tree, I have it but I have to enter it into Family tree maker yet before I can send it. Every year they have a family get together that includes many Kell's from the US. We have been adopted as their 32 cousin even though we have not found the connection.
