Barney Richmond KELLY, aged 73, a resident of Rochester for the past 14 years and at one time chief of the Kokomo police department died in his apartment, 514-1/2 North Main Street, at 8:25 o'clock Monday evening. Death was due to complications and followed an illness of two months.
The deceased was born in Kokomo on October 1, 1864 and was the son of Joseph and Pruella KELLY. In a ceremony which was performed in Kokomo March 25, 1905 he was married to Miss Pearl KELLEY.
Mr. Kelly was an extremely tall and a very powerfully built man. When a youth, he obtained a position with "Hamlin's Superbs" a musical extravaganza which toured the United States and Canada, Mr. Kelly playing one of the leads.
Because of his size Mr. Kelly during the summer months was appointed a special policeman at Coney Island Park in New York. Later he returned to Kokomo where he was appointed a member of the police department.
He advanced through various positions in the police department until he was named chief by the late George W. STICHER, mayor of Kokomo. When Mr. Kelly retired from the police department he followed the occupation of a billposter.
Survivors are the widow, six children, Clyde [KELLY], Los Angeles, Cal.; Mrs. Frances ROSENBAUM, Hanna; Eugene [KELLY] and Ruth [KELLY] at home; Louis [KELLY], Rochester and Mrs. Alice TURLEY, Kokomo; two brothers, Joseph KELLY, Indianapolis and Charlie KELLY, Mangum, Okla.; two sisters, Mrs. A. T. MORGAN, Indianapolis and Mrs. Phil OWEN, Red Wood City, Cal. and eight grandchildren.
The funeral services will be held from the Foster Funeral Home in West Sixth Street at 2 o'clock Thursday afternoon with Rev. L. E. SMITH pastor of the First Evangelical Church officiating. Interment will be made in a cemetery at Kokomo.
