Civil War Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient. He served as a Sergeant in the Union Army.

His citation reads "Having voluntarily accompanied a small party to destroy buildings within the enemy's lines whence sharpshooters had been firing, Kelley disregarded an order to retire, remained, and completed the firing of the buildings, thus insuring their total destruction; this at the imminent risk of his life from the fire of the advancing enemy." (bio by: Don Morfe)
