Henry Kelley b. 1849 & Elizabeth Moody b. 1848 - Both in Wright County, Missouri
I am trying to locate any information for Henry Kelley, son of James Kelley and Elizabeth Reese, and Elizabeth Moody, daughter of Jonathan Moody and Mary Sarah Randall. It is reported that Henry and Elizabeth both died in 1889 during a measles epidemic but I believe the epidemic was smallpox.
I believe that Henry and Elizabeth are my great grand parents. They had three known children: William Jacob Kelley b. 1879 - 1880, James David Kelley b 1880 - 1881 and Sarah Evelyn Kelley b. 1886 - 1887. All were born in Missouri. Sarah is my grandmother and she died in Clay County, Arkansas in 1929.
Sarah was raised by the John Hutson family in Hartville, Missouri and can be found in the 1900 and 1910 census'. I have been unable to find a marriage record or death records for Henry and Elizabeth or birth records for any of the children.
Elizabeth cannot be found after the 1860 census and Henry cannot be found after the 1870 census. Some people think that Henry was living with his wife Elizabeth in the 1870 census but Henry had a sister named Elizabeth and she and two other siblings were living with Henry next door to their parents James and Elizabeth Kelley.
Sarah and James David both had Crouzon's Syndrome that I think they inherited from their mother Elizabeth Moody. I think Elizabeth inherited the Syndrome from her mother Mary Sarah "Blind Sally" Randall Moody.
I may totally have the wrong Henry Kelley and Elizabeth Moody also but the reasons I think I have the right people is that my grandmother was of Indian descent (I believe that Jonathan or Mary Sarah was also of Indian descent. I've seen pictures of Elizabeth's brother Henry "Turkey" Moody and he is definitely of Indian descent), she could have been named after her grandmother Mary Sarah and Crouzon's syndrome can cause blindness.
Below is a picture of my grandmother Sarah Evelyn Kelley.
I would appreciate any leads to documentation that anyone would be able to give me.
