|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Found a listing of the cemeteries in White Cloud, Doniphan County, Kansas, during a visit in 1998. The cemetery listed as #1 is named "Kelly".
We met Kenneth Edie and his daughter, Mary in White Cloud. Kenneth had bought 80 acres of land about 8-9 years ago on which, at one time, was a cemetery. This was the "Kelly Cemetery". Kenneth reported the stones had been plowed under by the previous owners. Kenneth and Mary, as they found stones, were putting them by a tree and have fenced it in. Mary has put a bird house on the tree and plans to plant flowers. Last year, 1997, Mary found another stone by the creek:

There is also the foundation of two old homes on this property.
Ephriam Kelly, his wife, Lydia, and three of their children, Fontanus, John A., and Eliza moved from southern Indiana to Kansas in 1854.
