Also living in Kelton, Union County, SC is the Free family. Abraham Free died in 1837 but he and Christiana Elizabeth Gallman had a daughter named Christiann Elizabeth Free and a son named David Belton Free, Sr. (DOB 4/2/1837 in Kelton, Union County, SC; DOD 5/26/1920 in Kelton, Unon County, SC, married Lusarah Mabry). David Belton Free, Sr. also served in the War of Northern Aggression in the same regiment and company with Jamison G. Kelly! Both were Sergeants in the SC 18th Infantry Regiment, Co. F.

Jameson Gazaway Kelly married Christiann Elizabeth Free. Elizabeth Free was born 1/21/1835 in Union County, SC to Abram Free (DOB 4/8/1809 in Union County, SC; DOD 4/22/1838 in Kelton, Union County, SC) and Christiana Elizabeth Gallman (DOB 1/29/1813 in Kelton, Union County, SC; DOD 8/20/1859 in Kelton, Union County, SC). J.G. and Elizabeth Free Kelly had 10 children that I'm aware of:

1) Christiann Melissa Kelly (DOB 3/12/1854 in SC; DOD 7/10/1930 in Jonesville, Union County, SC) married Isaac Devant Page (aka Isaac Durant Page, Ike Page) (DOB 5/9/1850 in Union County, Sc; DOD 12/25/1932 in Jonesville, Union County, SC). The had Thomas Belton Page, Wade Hampton Page, Mettie Elizabeth Page, Watt Page, Ora Velna Page, Millard C. Page.

2) Thomas Belton Kelly (DOB 3/25/1856 in Pinckney, Union County, SC; DOD 10/25/1926 in Union County, SC) married Marietta Gault (Mary Etta Gault, Etta Gault) (DOB 7/7/1864 in Jonesville, Union County, SC; DOD 7/27/1944 in Jonesville, Union County, SC).

3)*Abram Silas Kelly (DOB 8/1859 in Union County, SC; DOD 1911 in Union County, SC) married Leila A. Fowler (DOB 8/1862 in Alston, Fairfield County, SC; DOD 3/25/1947 in Union County, SC). They had William Abram Kelly, Katherine Elizabeth "Kate" Kelly, John Belton Kelly, James Joe Kelly, Esma Elizabeth Kelly, Maybelle Kelly, Ella Lane Kelly, Earnest Everett Kelly, Leonard Kelly.

4) Addie "Ada" Kelly (DOB 11/24/1860 in Union County, SC; DOD 10/6/1911 in Union Coun ty, SC) married Malcom C. Gault (Mack Gault or M.C. Gault) (DOB 7/22/1859 in Cross Anchor, Spartanburg County, SC; DOD 3/5/1922 in Jonesville, Union County, SC). They had Ashby Lee Gault, Carol Ledley Gault, Sr., Ethel Ann Gault, Thomas Bomar Gault, Myrtle Gault.

5) William Ashby Lee Kelly (W.A.L. Kelly) (DOB 7/17/1863 in Union County, SC; DOD 3/25/1935 in Pinckney, Union County, SC ) married Josephine "Josie" Thompson Turner (DOB 10/1864 in SC; DOD 4/29/1931 in Union County, SC). They had J. Edgar Kelly, Bessie Kelly, Barth Jeter Kelly, William Thomas Norman Kelly, James Barto Kelly, Andrew Broadus Kelly, Elizabeth Kelly, Dewey Kelly, Wallace T. Kelly.

6) Selma Kelly (DOB about 5/5/1866 in Union County, SC; DOD 8/7/1899 in Union County, SC), married Willie G. Gault (DOB 9/5/1859 in Union County, SC; DOD 12/28/1938 in Union County, SC). They had Lula Edna Gault, Anna Gault, Lillie Gault, Nora Margie Gault, Mary Gault, Infant Daughter Gault. Willie G. Gault married 2nd Ida Virginia "Virgie" Smith (DOB 4/22/1875 in SC; DOD 12/23/1957 in Union County, SC). They had Augusta Gault, Willie F. Gault. There is a son named Harold P. Gault. He is listed as Willie G. Gault's stepson in the 1910 US Census but I can't find him in the 1900 U.S. Census with Virgie Smith or Willie Gault. If he was born in 1899, that was before Willie married Ida Virgie Smith. Did Virgie have a child by another man before she married Willie? Was Harold P. the child of Virgie and father unknown? Or is his birth year wrong in the 1910 census and he was the first child of Willie and Virgie Smith? The "step" in stepson was added by a different pen or hand. Harold P. is not listed with Virgie Smith or Willie Gault in 1900. If he was born in 1899, he should be somewhere.

7) Leitha Kelly (aka Letha Kelly, Litha Kelly, Lether Kelly) (DOB 6/17/1868 in Union County, SC; DOD 2/10/1959 in Union County, SC), never married.

8) Ardella Kelly (aka Della Kelly) (DOB 6/25/1870 in Union County, SC; DOD 10/5/1911 in Union County, SC) married Joshua J. Spears (aka J.J. Spears) (DOB 7/1858 in SC; DOD 3/8/1907 in Union County, SC). They had William Asbury Spears (DOB 2/20/1897 in Kelton, Union County, SC; DOD 9/2/1950 in Union County, SC, married Thelma Guynelle Hughes).

9) Mary E. Kelly (DOB 6/21/1873 in Union County, SC; DOD 9/13/1958 in Union County, SC), never married.

10) Wallace Thompson Kelly (DOB 1/1878 in Union County, SC; DOD 9/15/1903 in Monarch Mills, Union County, SC) married Clara Gault (DOB 7/1875 in SC; DOD 9/24/1923 in Spartanburg County, SC).

We had a hard time finding the Kelly Family Cemetery until Richard Kelly contacted me and gave me directions. Thank you, Richard! Take Hwy 9 to Kelly Town (I think it's also known as Kelton or Kelly community) where the Kelly One Stop convenience store is. Pass the convenience store and turn left on Pea Ridge Rd. Pass Foster's Chapel United Methodist church and then turn left on Eisontown Rd. Look for Hart Rd on the left. Just past Hart Rd look for an old dirt road on the left. It has a gate. You walk the dirt road and keep looking into the woods on the left to find the cemetery. I'm sure this is private property since there is a gate. It's pretty overgrown back there too so I don't recommend going. I took good photos and I hope you will be satisfied with these. But I also don't want the cemetery lost forever which is why I give the directions. The GPS coordinates to the dirt road are 34 50.447' and -81 35.788. There are 6 head stones and most of those are barely legible. I used chalk to highlight them and you can see the before and after photos. There are a good many rocks marking graves and I suppose we will never know who they represent, whether family or slaves.





























Names that are repeated in three generations of family were:
Abraham/Abram Free
Abram Silas Kelly (son of Jamison Gazaway Kelly and Christiann Elizabeth Free)
William Abram Kelly (son of Abram Silas Kelly)
D. Abram Free (son of David Belton Free)
Abram Free (son of David Belton Free, Jr.)

David Belton Free, Sr. (brother of Christiann Elizabeth Free Kelly)
David Belton Free, Jr. (son of David Belton Free, Sr.)
David Belton Free, III (son of David Belton Free, Jr.)
John Belton Free (son of David Belton Free, Sr., yes he named TWO sons Belton)
Thomas Belton Kelly (son of Jamison Gazaway Kelly and Christiann Elizabeth Free)
John Belton Kelly, Sr. (son of Abram Silas Kelly)
John Belton Kelly, Jr. (son of John Belton Kelly, Sr.)
Thomas Belton Page (son of Christiann Melissa Kelly Page, daughter of Jamison Kelly and Christiann Elizabeth Free)
I wonder if the name Belton came from John Belton O’Neall?

Christianna Elizabeth Gallman (wife of Abram Free)
Christiann Elizabeth Free (daughter of Christianna Elizabeth Gallman and Abram Free, wife of Jamison Gazaway Kelly)
Christiann Melissa Kelly (daughter of Christiann Elizabeth Free and Jameson Gazaway Kelly)

Thomas Norman Kelly, Sr. (father of Jamison Gazaway Kelly)
Thomas Norman Kelly, Jr. (son of Thomas Norman Kelly, Sr. and brother of Jamison Kelly)
William Thomas Norman Kelly (son of William Ashby Lee Kelly son of Jamison G. Kelly)
-Thomas and Norman were repeated in later generations but not together.-
Thomas Elzie Kelly (son of Thomas Norman Kelly, Jr.)
Butler Norman Kelly (son of Thomas Norman Kelly, Jr.)
Thomas Bomar Gault (son of Addie Kelly, daughter of Jamison Kelly)

Elizabeth and William are repeated but then that's not unusual as they are two very popular names.
