Isaac Riley Kellems was killed in an accident in the sawmill you mention. A large belt on the mill broke and the loose end hit him in the head. Charles Francis "Frank" Kellems was my G. Grandfather. He married Sarah Theresa Wheatley 11-10-1887. They had 12 (!) children. His #7 was Sarah Letitia Kellems Byrn. Her daughter was My Mother, Edith Vivian Byrn Dale. Frank was a violin maker. Some of his pieces are still in our family, and I have some of his tools and jigs. I have other names and dates from late 1690's to present date. There are more Kellems' in the area, Pemiscot County, Missouri. The info I have is more complete in re children and spouses after 1800.
