Biography
Ollie Viola (Bagwell) Kelly
(1900 1929)

Ollie Viola (Bagwell) Kelly was born Feb. 6, 1900 in Choudrant, Lincoln Parish, La., one of eleven children born to Andrew Jackson Bagwell and Emma Harriet Gentry.
Viola (she was called by her middle name) grew up in Choudrant and graduated from Choudrant High school about 1918 as the valedictorian of her class.
She married James Henry Kelly, also of Lincoln Parish, La., about 1919. A short time after their marriage, they moved to Shreveport, La.
James and Viola had two children: James Henry Kelly, Jr., born Nov. 11, 1922, and Melrose Kelly, born Feb. 15, 1926.
At the young age of 29, Viola became ill and died Aug. 11, 1929, leaving the two children, James Jr., age six, and Melrose, age three. Viola was buried in Forest Park Cemetery East, Shreveport, La.
Prior to the birth of James, Jr., Viola's sister, Emma Lee Bagwell, moved to Shreveport to assist with Viola's first baby. Emma Lee lived with James and Viola.
After Viola died, Emma Lee continued to live in the house to assist James with the children. Emma Lee was married March 22, 1930 to Oliver Thompson. She and Oliver lived with James and his two children for a short time, before moving to an apartment.
