Denny...that makes TWO! I had begun to think that my ggrandmother had been the only Bright in IL.Her name was Martha J Bright, born c 1848, died 27Jun1873. I have found her twice in the IL records. Once when her marriage was listed in Madison County on 8Mar1870 and later that year on the census in Sangamon County living with her husband and his parents.She was married to James T(?) Kelly.She was widowed in 1873 when she was about 7 months pregnant with twins. She died in childbirth and one of the twin boys died with her.Her sister (name unknown but last name may have been Robinson) took my 2-yr old grandfather, Raymond Thomas Kelley, and his infant brother, John Wesley Kelley, back to Missouri to raise with her own family. If you have any other information about her possible relations, I would greatly appreciate the information. Thank you for your time.
