He is son of Franklin Charles Byrd Kelly and Virginia Jennie Smothers. He would have be grandson of Franklin Columbus Kelly mrd Mary Frances Stribling
Although it was said, "The inventory from Sam Tise gives it as PGB and he was pretty careful about his transcriptons."
everyone makes mistakes esp on old stones and certainly
PGB could easily be FCB. He fits right in the big gap of space of no kids as does the infant sister Lumbia.
Recent photographer says, "At Cemetery today, it is in terrible shape, open to cattle and all, not many stones there in decent condition, documented the stones I
could find, did not find one for Garland Kelly,
but I do have a book done in the 1980's in which a gentleman went around and documented all names he
could find in the cemetery off of their tombstones,
so his did exist at that time, info in the book
says he born 1/30/1893 and died 4/13/1894
and his parents were CB and Jennie."

1900 census lists Jennie had 6 children
but only 2 living.
There is a gap of 8 yrs between the birth of Bertha
and Robert Alley
