I don't what county my family came from, but I do have some names. Edmund Kelley (Kelly) born approx 1822, Augustus (Gus) Kelley (Kelly) born approx 1825 and Joel Kelley (Kelly) born approx 1828. Their parents were supposedly both born in Ireland. Seems the three boys were in Shelby County, Tn by the mid to late 1830's. Any information would be helpful. Trying to find the County where they came from so I can continue my research.
the kelly/kelley brothers more than likely were born in fayette co.tn next to shelby county.more census say tennessee than alabama for the birth state of edmond and augustus.

William I thank you so much for moving my tree forward. I will advise the newly found cousin who is on the Augustus Kelley side of this new info. The A.A. Kelley is my gg grandfather son of Edmund Kelley. Actually the majority of Kelley/Kelly's in that grave yard are my relations.
Are you related to these families?
Bless you for sharing this info with us.
i forgot to add that gus kelly is listed as andrews uncle on the 1900 census.
