Victim of the Peshtigo Fire.
On a marker next to the monument for Mr. Kelly and his daughter:
"Terrance Kelly, his wife and four children lived in the Upper Sugar Bush. When the fire came with its terrible wind and smoke the family became separated, voices could not be heard over the roar of the fire. Mr. Kelly had a child in his arms, as did Mrs. Kelly, the other two children clung to each other. In their search for safety each group lost track of the others. The next day Mr. Kelly and child [daughter Theresa] were found dead nearly a mile from his farm, the mother and another child were safe. The other children, a boy, age seven, and a girl, five, were found sleeping in each other's arms near the farm [they were alive]. The house, barn, and all the outbuildings had burned to the ground."
