COLLEYs and KELLEYs (and Colleyville)

Posted: 4 Jul 2006 6:07PM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: COLLEY, KELLEY, BANKS
Someone named A. W. Kelley lived in Wichita Co. TX (precinct 1) in 1920. His age was 41 and his wife, listed as Mrs. A. W. Kelley, was 37 (her parents were born in Massachusetts). They had 3 sons (their names appear to be Arnota, Dale, and Jack) and 3 lodgers in their household. One of the "lodgers" was Dr. L. H. Colley (age 36).

In 1900, a young couple named Andrew Kelley and wife Estelle (that name is hard to read, but I think it starts with an E, maybe not Estelle; her parents were born in Missouri) lived in Tarrant Co. TX. He was 22 and she was 18. Do you think they are the same couple? They lived next door to L. H. Colley and his wife Martha. The Colleys had 3 sons at home: Thaddeus, Darius, and Cyrus. Thaddeus Colley married Rosabelle Banks (daughter of John and Mary Banks)
who died in 1956 in Tarrant Co. TX. They are buried at Everman Cemetery in Fort Worth, TX (Tarrant Co.).

Can someone help me connect the dots? What (if any) was the relationship between the KELLEYs and the COLLEYs?
Was Mr. A. W. Colley who lived in Wichita Co. TX in 1920 (age 41) the same person as Mr. Andrew (or Adron?) Kelley who lived in Tarrant Co. TX in 1900 (age 22)? Did Mr. Kelly have a different wife in 1900 and 1920 (first wife's parents being from Missouri, and second wife's parents being from Massachusetts)?

The town of Colleyville (population about 20,000) was named for Dr. Lilburn Howard Colley (his frirst name could have been Hilburn, Milburn, or Wilburn), a native of Missouri who practiced medicine in Tarrant Co. TX from 1880-1920. Colleyville is in Tarrant Co. TX near DFW airport. [Dr. Colley was bitten by a mad dog in 1911.] Who was Dr. L. H. Colley (age 36) who "lodged" with the KELLEYs in 1920 in Wichita Co. TX? Can someone confirm or deny that Estelle Kelley was a daughter of Dr. L. H. Colley? Who were the parents of Dr. L. H. Colley (for whom Colleyville was named)?
