The Kelley Brothers

from the Joel Kelley book

Elijah and Julia Jane McSpadden Kelley had 10 children, three daughters and seven sons. Two daughters Polly and Nettie died young and the other Lizzie died in 1909. I'm so thankful to have the Joel Kelley book, it has many photos which I would not otherwise have. Above is a photo that was published in the Cleveland Daily Banner, Cleveland, Tenn. on Thursday, June 28, 1966.  This photo was taken in 1916 and has all seven of Elijah and Julia Jane McSpadden Kelley's sons.
It's so exciting to see a photo of my Great Grandfather and all of his brothers.

That's unusual that all of the girls died young ---and all 7 brothers lived longer... Great picture of the brothers...

Glad you have that Kelley book...
Hugs,
