Subject: RE: New message from CherylRearick on MARGARET A DELZELL

Hi Ennis,

The Margaret A. Delzell in my file was married to John M. Kelley about 1857 and they had 6 children. The family is living in Cass, Greene, Missouri in 1860, and Margaret's younger sister Amanda "Manda" Dellzell, age 15, is living with them. If I go back to the 1850 census, I find both Margaret & Amanda living at home with their parents, Smith & Ann Delzell.

Byi the way, I don't know if you looked at my tree but I relooked at this family before writing you back and changed the spouse and children I had for their daughter Millie. She is listed in as an heir in her grandfather's probate papers in 1891 as Millie A. Hays, and I had thought she was the Malissa who married George W. Hayes. I now think she married George Martin Hayes, have more information on them and their children if you are interested.

I tried to see if I could find death certificates on the Missouri state site for any of John & Margaret's children to see what they listed for Margaret's maiden name and found:

Millie Ann Kelley Hayes - died in 1945 in Colorado
Mary Alice Kelley Riley Schofield - died in Springfield, Greene, Missouri in 1945. Parents listed as Unknown Jelly and Unknown Delzell
Ellen Kelley - died before 1891
Sarah "Sally" Kelley Reynolds - died in Aurora, Lawrence, Missouri in 1945. Parents listed as John Kelley and Margaret A. Delzell
Charles Kelley - died in St. Louis, Missouri in 1927. Parents listed as John Schofield and Margaret Unknown. His wife's maiden name was Mary Schofield.
Jessie Kelley - died in Springfield, Greene, Missouri in 1913. Parents listed as John M. Kelley & Margaret A. Delzell.

Be happy to discuss this more with you if needed,
