Re: Virginia Kelty Sheets of western PA, c.1850-1925
Elaine, I am working on the KELTY name and just came across Virginia's name.Her oldest sister was Laura Jane and she married Joseph C. Falls. I believe their father, John Kelty is the one I have an obituary on in August of 1880 it gives no family information.I cannot place this John with my other Kelty's but I suspect he belongs to John and Margaret Kelty that are in the 1850 Beaver Co., Darlington, Twp. and 1860 census Beaver Co., Brighton Twp. Virgina's father would have been born abt. 1822. His parents were not in the 1870 census.I have been able to track most of his siblings.One is a William Kelty that was living in the household of Laura Jane Falls in the 1880 census and he also died in 1880. Laura's obituary does not give information on her parents. I would like to hear from you on this family.
