Mary Ann "Marie" Kelly, 1879-1944

Classification: Query
Surnames: Kelly
Born January 29, 1879 in Verulam Township, Ontario, Canada
Parents; John B. Kelly (1843-1911) & Ann Jane "Nancy" Turk (1848-1930)
Died February 7, 1944, Detroit, Wayne, Michigan USA.

I'm looking for information on Marie Kelly, who is my second great grand aunt. All I know past these dates is that she never married, had no children, and that she worked as a fur trader in the early 1900s. She was on a boat that was captured by the Russians and was held captive for a year. Family stories say she may have been a spy, but there doesn't seem to be anything to support that. I know she managed a hotel while living in Detroit, but I have no idea what it was called, or where it was located.

Any info that will help turn some of these incredible stories into facts would be appreciated.
