Bio and Links
Bio Photo Long ago and far away in a Great Northern Country {Ontario and Upper Canada} Also Known As... "The Great Beyond" {another name for the Canadian wilderness} dwelled a proud and noble people who were my Kelly Irish-Canadian Ancestors! Two generations of Kellys were born into this cold and rugged expanse of wilderness, where their families thrived and the Kelly patriarchs and matriarchs lived to a ripe old age! I am also researching Williams; Parrish; Miller; & Carney in my mother's(Vivian Madeline Williams Kelly Honea's)Line. My maternal Grandmother (Elnora Parrish Williams) was the daughter of Elizabeth Miller Parrish, born 25, Nov, 1849, to Enoch Miller & Phoebe A. Carney Miller in Duck Creek Hundred, Kent County, Delaware. Phoebe A. Carney Miller was a descendant of the Delaware Moors, who were a Colonial Mixed-Race Native American Community. This unique group of people, descendants of Nanticoke (Tidewater People) Native Americans, some of whom inter-married with whites, some with blacks, have maintained a separate and unique community, despite all attempts to force assimilation, for close to 300 years. They still exist today in Kent County, Delaware.

MY WILLIAMS/MILLER/CARNEY LINE

My maternal Grandmother(Elnora Parrish Williams)was the daughter of Elizabeth Miller Parrish, born 25, Nov, 1849,to Enoch Miller and Phoebe A. Carney Miller in Duck Creek Hundred, Kent County, Delaware. Phoebe A.Carney Miller was a descendant of the Delaware Moors, who were a Colonial Mixed-Race Native American Community. This unique group of people, descendants of Nanticoke (Tidewater People) Native Americans, some of whom inter-married with whites, some with blacks, have maintained a separate and unique community, despite all attempts to force assimilation, for close to 300 years. They still exist today in Kent County, Delaware.

Native Americans were not allowed to own property of any kind because they were not considered citizens of this land. It was not until 1924 that Congress recognized Native Americans as United States citizens. Therefore, anyone who was identified as an Indian was placed on a reservation. For this reason, many Native Americans hid their identity to keep their cultural heritage a secret.

MY KELLY-LINE

This is my father's line as follows: (1) I am the second generation of my paternal Kelly-Line to be born in America! My name is Loren Gerald Kelly and I was born in March of 1951 in Borger, Texas! (2) My father: Luther James Kelly was the first generation of our Kelly-Line to be born in the United States of America on 15, June, 1907 in Findlay, Ohio! (3) My Grandfather, Nathan Tompkins Kelly, was the second generation of our Kelly-Line to be born in Canada on 24, August, 1867 in Blenheim, Kent County, Ontario [Became a naturalized U.S. citizen in 1879]! (4)My Great-Grandfather, James Kelly, was the first generation of our Kelly-Line to be born in Canada on 09, September, 1838 in Burritts Rapids, Oxford-on-Rideau Township, Grenville County, Upper Canada. [Became a Naturalized U.S. Citizen in 1879]! (5) Thomas Francis Kelly, my Great-Great-Grandfather, was born in about 1800, somewhere in Ireland, and I am on the threshold of tracing him back across the water and through the "Irish Mist" of that "Emerald Isle" of Ireland! KELLY MOTTO: "Turis - Fortis - Mihi - Deus!"....."God is my tower of strength!" My Loyalist Ancestor: Private Israel Tompkins [My G-G-G-Grandfather].."As a member of Kings Loyal Americans, Kings Rangers, Rogers Rangers, and Jessups Loyal Rangers he served the Royal Standard for 5 years and 3 months, in service to "The Crown" and was honorably discharged 17, January, 1783 at Riviere des Chene!"

Hi, Cousin Loren
Hello, cousin Loren.

My name is John Carter and you and I had communicated back in 2010. I happened upon your profile after seeing a comment you had posted on Civil War veteran Debricks Miller's memorial. Then I happened to notice the reply from GerbLady (with whom I've corresponded with many times over the years) on your profile with a subject heading of "My half brother" and I was curious. So I followed the link over to her profile and read your post there. Very interesting about finding your half-brother! Sorry to hear you were unable to locate him until after he had passed.

Anyway, Florida National Cemetery is about 80 miles from me. Where did John Warren Morris live? Or, more specifically, where was he living when he passed away? If he was in this area of Florida, I might be able to see if I can find an obituary for you. If it's in the Tampa Bay region I can check for you right away. If some other area, such as Orlando, Gainesville, etc., it might take a little longer, until such time as I'm heading to one of those areas.

Let me know. I'm happy to try to help!
:-)
Sincerely,
John
(Carney, Concealler, Durham, Hughes/Hewes descendant of Delaware)
