This is my father's line as follows: (1) I am the second generation of my paternal Kelly-Line to be born in America! My name is Loren Gerald Kelly and I was born in March of 1951 in Borger, Texas! (2) My father: Luther James Kelly was the first generation of our Kelly-Line to be born in the United States of America on 15, June, 1907 in Findlay, Ohio! (3) My Grandfather, Nathan Tompkins Kelly, was the second generation of our Kelly-Line to be born in Canada on 24, August, 1867 in Blenheim, Kent County, Ontario [Became a naturalized U.S. citizen in 1879]!

[Became a Naturalized U.S. Citizen in 1879]! (5) Thomas Francis Kelly, my Great-Great-Grandfather, was born in about 1800, somewhere in Ireland, and I am on the threshold of tracing him back across the water and through the "Irish Mist" of that "Emerald Isle" of Ireland! KELLY MOTTO: "Turis - Fortis - Mihi - Deus!"....."God is my tower of strength!" My Loyalist Ancestor: Private Israel Tompkins [My G-G-G-Grandfather]...."As a member of Kings Loyal Americans, Kings Rangers, Rogers Rangers, and Jessups Loyal Rangers he served the Royal Standard for 5 years and 3 months, in service to "The Crown" and was honorably discharged 17, January, 1783 at Riviere des Chene!"
