........a daughter, Mabel Louise Cohen who married Clyde Harris and they had
..........a son, William "Billy" Harris who married Peggy Annette Prince and they had

Surname is spelled Kelly and Kelley.

Jameson Gazaway "J.G." Kelly (aka spelled as Jamerson Kelly, Jamison Kelly and Jimmison Kelly, Jimison Kelly, J.G. Kelly) was born 4/15/1836 in SC to Thomas Kelly, Sr. (DOB 12/9/1784 in VA ; DOD 2/28/1866 in Union County, SC ) and Melissa Hames (DOB About 1810 in SC, DOD 6/1880 in Union County, SC). Thomas Kelly, Sr. is buried in the Kelly Family Cemetery.

I found a "Jamerson Kelly" in The Roster of Confederate Soldiers, 1861-1865, (Edited by Janet B. Hewett, Published by Broadfoot Pub. Co., Wilmington, NC, 1996, Vol IX, Pg 96) "Jamerson G. Kelly, SC 18th Inf Co. F Cpl". Then I looked him up in the microfilms of Compiled Service Records of Confederate Soldiers From the State of SC: 18th Infantry, J-MA, (M267-300,
Kelly, Jamerson G. Card #'s 49610628, 49610715, 4960795)

Muster roll Co F, 18th Regiment SC Infantry and is reported present at Camp Hampton from March 31-April 30, 1862
No other cards or papers for him on this microfilm.

Pg 170, Death Notices from Union Times, 10/12/1906, James G.Kelly, DOD 10/5/1906 and is buried in the Kelly Family Cemetery, Kelton (aka Kelly Town or Kelly), off Eisontown Rd, Union County, SC.
"James G. Kelly died last Friday (Oct 5) & his remains were buried Saturday at the old Kelly graveyard near his house. Mr.Kelly was a member of the 18th SC Cavalry during the Civil War."

C. Elizabeth Free Kelly died 1/5/1900 and is also buried in the Kelly Family Cemetery.

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 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 follow 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.
