Re: O'KELLEY VA>TN>MO>OR
Carolyn and Dave -
I'm descended from Charles O'Kelley through his eldest son from his second marriage to Catherine Helms, George Washington O'Kelley (my great-great grandfather).I was given my first name in honor of this family (of course, my parents spelled it wrong though! :-) I had not been able to trace back beyond Charles, so I was excited to find your posting.I have a few questions though: 1) was Charles the son of Nimrod and Sarah due to marriage date of 1813 (you have Charles born 1811 from census I guess? I had always taken November 1803 as his birthdate due to his tombstone inscription). 2) I would love to have more information on Thomas, Benjamin & Nimrod and would be glad to provide info on the George O'Kelley line if you need it.
