Amenuensis Monday - Walker and Sallie Kelly

This family is not one of my husband's direct lines. Walker Kelly would be Stan's 4th cousin 4 times removed. But I thought I would share what I found out about them and see if anyone else out there has any further information. If you find any corrections or if you have more information, please contact me at Mom25dogs@gmail.com.



Walker Kelly was born about 1856 in Union County, SC to Thomas Norman Kelly (DOB 7/2/1826 in Alston, Fairfield County, SC; DOD 5/7/1891 in Pinckneyville, Union County, SC) and Mary "Polly" Elizabeth Comer (DOB 7/12/1846 in Alton, Fairfield County, SC; DOD 4/18/1925 in Pinckneyville, Union County, SC).

I could not find Walker Kelly and his family in the 1910, 1920 or 1930 U.S. Censuses.

I only found an amendment death certificate for Walker Kelly. It's completely blank except for his name and date of death:

NC Death Certificate Amendment, Registration District #44-11, Certificate #80, "Walker Kelly", DOD 11/10/1939
Everything else is blank on this certificate.

Of course I would like to know who his wife was and their dates of death and where they died and are buried. I would also like to know what happened to their children. Where were they during those censuses? So if you have any further information for me, please contact me at Mom25dogs@gmail.com.
