John Kelly was born on 22 June, 1829 in Shannonbridge, Clonmacnoise, Offley Co. Ireland. This information was transcribed from his tombstone located in St. Michaels Cemetery, Frostburg, Maryland, USA. We believe that his family lived in Shannonbridge. He was a carpenter.
Mom and I visited the area in 1987 and found a parish record stating that his father was also named John Kelly. Due to naming traditions, we are wondering is our John might have been the eldest son.
Am looking for any information about his extended family or descendants. Glad to exchange information about his life in the USA. He has many descendants.
His memory is still honored and he is loved to this day.
Thank you and good ancestor hunting.
