I am descended from Louis Kellis of the Montgomery co., NC area, b abt 1800. I have some indication that James was one of three or so brothers who lived in the area. One, probably your James, wen to OH, while my Louis went to MS. I will be glad to exchange what limited knowledge I have with you. The big question is, who were the parents of James and Louis? Who were their other siblings and where were the parents from? Ireland?
