Actually Peter and Elizabeth are on the 1880 census in Mussey Twp.

1880: Mussey Twp St. Clair Co MI USA -
Kelley Peter 56 Ireland, Elizabeth 57 Quebec, John 28 MI, Francis Hidi? 17 MI nephew. Elizabeth says parents born NY. Peter says parents born Ireland; farmer. Francis says father born Quebec and mother Ontario.

I typed that long ago and didn't enter the page number. I think this was how the surname was spelled on the census but if it doesn't some up try just searching on his first name and limit it to Mussey Twp.

Here are some other newspaper tidbits I have. The item I posted was her obit so the newspaper did not state her birthplace or maiden name or birth year.

Here are some more newspaper items.
