In January 1912, W.A. and Hannah Edith Kelley, with their first born baby (Thirzie Novella) came to Hebron on a train and settled on the Furneaux ranch.
W.A. and Edith moved several times back to Tennessee. The last two weeks in December of 1929 they loaded their Model T truck and Model T car with their personal belongings and seven children and headed for Texas to stay. It took fourteen days to make the long journey. On January 1, 1930 they arrived at Hebron and settled on the Harry Lord farm, three miles west of Hebron.
In 1935 they moved to Forney, Texas. After eight years they moved back to Hebron, bought their home and lived their until their deaths.
