Hit a research wall with James A Kelley

Question by sillygoosegabi

Based on research, he was born in Mississippi in 1850 and died in Arkansas in 1927. On a 1900 Census, it says his father was from Ireland, but there's virtually no other information on his parents. I have no names and can only guess that his father changed their last name from "O'Kelley" to "Kelley" when he immigrated to America, like many of them did. I'm at a loss. Is anyone else stemming from this line? Or does anyone have any more information?

Hi Gabi, was searching around found an Ancestry Tree belonging to dgresh6851 found it thro' an all round search Also you say the 1900 census his father is down as coming from Ireland, have you looked at the 1850 census for Mississippi, James was born in Feb. 1850 according to the 1900 census so should be on that, which would give you his parents names. Also on Death IndexHis name is James Melvin Kelley, Mother Rouark.

James To.
24 Sep 1874 • Franklin, Arkansas, USA
Mary Elizabeth Roark (1854–1948).
