Hi, step-cousin Carolyn!
I accidentally posted to this site and found you. Thanks for finding and replying to my message.
I descend from John Francis (M?) KELLEY who married #1Mariah Jane KEY, sister of Thomas Marshall KEY, husband #1 of Nancy A. BULLOCK KEY who married #2John KELLEY Dec. 13, 1865, one day before Mariah Jane was buried, Dec. 14, 1865. Right? No hard feelings, just an interesting observation that John KELLEY married his sister-in-law and Nancy married her husband's brother-in-law? Well, YOU figure it.
Also interesting is that Mariah Jane died abt. June 23, 1860, but wasn't buried until Dec. 14, 1865. They waited five years to bury her? Someone said it wasn't too uncommon. Maybe they cremated her, moved her or something. Do you know?
Thanks so much for contacting me. I'm looking forward to comparing notes. If you don't have the Bullock history by Ruth Nesbett, I have a copy and will share if you want it.
