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.



Oliver Walker Kelly was born about 2/1856 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 ?. I don't know if Mary Elizabeth Comer was his mother as their other children were born about 10 years AFTER Walker Kelly. ??  Mary "Polly" Elizabeth Comer (DOB 7/12/1846 in Alton, Fairfield County, SC; DOD 4/18/1925 in Pinckneyville, Union County, SC).
