Jefferson County Journal, Wednesday, April 19, 1916, front page, col 5

Philip M. Kelly, who died at his home on Wardwell street, March 29, was born in this village January 1, 1882. He spent his entire life here and drew to himself a large circle of warm friends. He was a carpenter by trade and leaves many a memorial in the village in the form of careful and painstaking workmanship.

In 1902 he married Miss Jennie Phillips, and to them were born two sons, Richard and Robert, now twelve and nine years of age.

Mr. Kelly lived for his family. Their pleasant home was built largely by his own labor and for their sakes he was never idle so long as health left it possible for him to work. But about three months ago failing health caused by tuberculosis obliged him to give up work. He had since been a great sufferer, but brave and patient until the end which came peacefully last Wednesday morning.

The funeral services Saturday afternoon were conducted by his pastor, Rev. S. S. Davis, who, by his visits had brought much cheer and comfort during Mr. Kelly's illness. The firemen were present in a body and read their beautiful service for their departed brother Many messages of sympathy were expressed by beautiful floral offerings from relative, friends, groups of fellow workmen and other societies. The remains rest in Elmwood cemetery.

He leaves besides his widow and sons, his mother, two brothers and two sisters. His father, William Kelly, died many years ago.
