Thanks for the information. William was my 1C3R. There is nothing in family records to indicate that the town of Kelly may have been named for him. The obituary of his uncle John B. Kelly with surname spelled Kelley, who died 20 Aug 1949 in Jackson, Teton County, Wyoming mentions a nephew “Bill Kelley” resident in the Teton Basin, Idaho. Uncle John B. Kelly was also a cattle broker.
William J. Kelly (aka John William Kelley) 24 Jan 1867-11 Dec 1955 was born in Center Township, Cedar County, Iowa, the oldest child of James Kelly 6 Nov 1839-29 Feb 1896 and Laura Heywood 8 Apr 1846-7 Apr 1941. James born in Indiana, Laura in Bristol, Vermont. James and Laura are buried in the Wittemburg Cemetery, Jasper County, Iowa.
I see the 1900 census entry for William in Antelope, Kimball County, Nebraska, as provided by Ancestry.com, indicating that he was married for two years. If there were any children of his marriages, they are not named in the census entries.
I appreciate the method available to see a topographical map of the location of land ownership in Wyoming for an individual.
Yes, the only way to resolve the discrepancy in the dates of death of Sophia is through reviewing a copy of the death certificate.
Thanks for your help.
