James O'Kelley

  • Birth unknown County Meath, Ireland
  • Death 11 Sep 1777 West Chester, Chester County, Pennsylvania, USA
  • Burial West Chester, Chester County, Pennsylvania, USA
  • Plot Common Grave
  • Memorial ID 138864149

Private 10th Virginia Reg 7th Company killed in battle at the Battle of Brandywine. Buried in a mass grave.

James has mostly been forgotten by history. He appears in no books about the Revolutionary War dead. No families seem to claim him and I think he may be the forgotten ancestor of Thomas, Charles, and Francis O'Kelley who moved to Georgia in the early 1800s. I think James O'Kelley is likely my ancestor to come from Co Meath Ireland about 1747 and settled in Virginia.
