George W. Kelley's parents were John Kelley and Catherine Hartman of Botetort Co., VA. John also owned land Newport, Campbell, Kentucky, USA at the mouth of the Licking River.

War of 1812 Pension Record: George was 2nd Sgt. in Lt. Flemmings Company Major Adams' 3rd Ohio militia in the War of 1812. He enlisted 31 Aug 1812 and was discharged 28 Feb 1813. He received 80 acres in bounty land Jan 10, 1856 in Sullivan County, Indiana. He was drafted. He was stationed at Fort Nesbit in Preble County "Guarding the frontier from Indian incursions." In 1855 he moved to Sullivan Co., IN.

Some believe that the "W" in his middle name was for "Washington".

The 1881 "History of Preble County, Ohio": "George Kelley settled in Gratis township, and was among the earliest settlers in the county. He came from Virginia, where he was born in 1782. His wife, Elizabeth (Harrell), was born in Kentucky in 1787. They removed finally to Sullivan County, Indiana, where they both died..."
