He was born in Barnstable, MASS.
My Grandma - Rose M. Roy was born in 1910 or 1911 not sure, and was told that she died on January 15th,1947, at the age of 37. I believe she was born in Holyoke Mass, or somewhere near there. My grandparents, Eugene C. Kelley and Rose M. Roy were married in May of 1931. They had three (3) children:

Jean Marie Kelley b. 1933 d. 2005
Richard Russell Kelley b. 1935 d. 1975
Ronald J. Kelley b. 1942 (Still living) Tennessee

Jean Marie Kelley married Frank (Barney) Kemp (Peabody, MASS)
I've been told that my aunt did NOT have any children. They are both deceased now.

I have already told you about my DAD, Richard.

Ronald J. Kelley was in the Service for 24 years, I know he was stationed in Ft. Campbell, Kentucky. While in the service, he married a German woman, unfortunately I can't remember her name, but I do know that they currently reside in the state of Tennessee, and that they have two children:
Engelina A. Kelley b.1965
Tina M. Kelley b.1968
Uncle Ron told me that my Grandma was buried in the Holly Hood Cemetery, in a family plot, by the people she knew as her parents: Rose Marie Sheehan and James Aloysius Shore. I was told that her records are sealed in MASS for 100 years maybe she was a ward of the state and was adopted?
===============================================================After my Grandma Rose died my Grandpa Eugene got remarried. Her name was Evangaline; I believe Evangaline had 1 child already from a previous marriage (?) his name is Charles McMackin. They both, Eugene and Evangaline, later had a child together, named Robert (Bobby) Kelley. These would be my Dadís half brothers.
I've been told that Albert Kelley - my Great Grandfather was married to a woman named Katherine. Unfortunately I don't know her maiden name nor when either of them were born or when they died. I've also been told that my father Richard and his brother Ronnie were raised together by a woman named MABEL McDONOUGH, on Miller Road in Wilmington, MASS. She raised them as her own, for that I am eternally grateful!
