William Kelly and William Kelly Jr. appear in Jefferson County, MS, Court
Documents 1820-1840 (ordered copy but as of this date I have not heard
anything from Chancery Clerk in Fayette).

I believe the above William Kelly (Sr)to be the son of Rev War Soldier
John Kelly of Fairfield Co, SC. John Kelly had a son William Kelly (Sr)
who was named in John Kelly's will. The will stated that William Kelly
d. before 19 Jan 1842 and William left two daughters and a minor child.
The deceased William Kelly's two daughters: Mary/May who married John R.
Harris, 19 Mar 1835, and Elizabeth who married Elias Harris, 1841 --both
married in Claiborne County, MS. Believe the minor child to be William
Kelly (Jr) above.

Any info on William Kelly and/or William Kelly Jr. would be greatly appreciated.
