Kelly family arrived in Oregon city in October 1848, then moved to the east side of Portland around "Grants Butte".

In 1860 Plympton entered a claim of 350 acres of government. He erected a log cabin and the undertook the task of clearing his land until he had 200 acres in cultivation. "The only interruption of his farming came during the period of the Indian wars of 1855-6 during which he served as a corporal under Colonel Nesbit and Colonel Cornelius. The volunteer soldiers marched from the Dalles through the Indian country into the Yakim valley, where they spent the winter and in the latter par of December, 1855, they had a fight with the indians that last for four days, winning the vicotyr, although the re men far outnumbered the white soldiers." On the 4th of July, 1864, Mr Kelly was united in marriage to Miss Elizabeth A Clar daughter of Alexander and Nancy (Hitchens) Clark and a niece of Mrs. C S Kingsley who cam to Oregon in 1851.
