Looking for descendants of Arthur Kellow, brother of Thomas H. Kellow (mentioned in my previous post).
Arthur Kellow was born about 1810 in North Carolina; married Frances Neeley, daughter of J.C. and Elizabeth Neeley, before 1836 in Tennessee, probably Williamson County.He died about 1848 in probably Williamson County.His children were:
1. Nathaniel J. Kellow, born about 1836 in Tennessee; C.S.A. 20th Infantry, Company B
2. Elizabeth Kellow, born about 1838 in Tennessee
3. Robert (“B.”) Kellow, born about 1840 in Tennessee
4. Mary Kellow, born about 1841 in Tennessee
5. William Kellow, born about 1843 in Tennessee
6. A.J. Kellow, male, born about 1845 in Tennessee
7. Isabella Kellow, born about 1847 in Tennessee
8. Arthur Thomas Kellow, born about 1848 in Tennessee
Thomas H. Kellow, my 3rd great grandfather is listed in the 1850 Williamson County, TN census.His closest neighbor in 1850 in Williamson County was Isaac Neeley, age 30, and his family.Isaac was probably the brother of Frances Neeley, Thomas’ sister-in-law, who married Arthur Kellow (above).Arthur died between 1848 and 1850, leaving Frances Neeley Kellow a widow with seven children.In 1850, one of Arthur and Frances children, Isabella age 3, is living with Isaac Neeley next door to Thomas Kellow’s family.Frances and the remaining six children are found two pages earlier in the census (census page 193-B and 194-A).Frances is living next to a J.C. and Elizabeth Neeley, ages 55 and 53.J.C. and Elizabeth are likely Frances’ parents.J.C. Neeley was a carpenter from North Carolina, born about 1795.The Neeleys were probably helping to raise the seven Kellow children after the death of Arthur.
Part of Arthur Kellow's family also appears in the 1860 Williamson County census including his widow Frances and five children.This part of the family decided to stay in Middle Tennessee at least through 1860.Frances probably kept the family with her parents to help raise the children.
