Amanda Elizabeth Collins was born in Hart Co., Kentucky, February 7, 1847. Was converted and united with the Baptist church early in life, and later united with the Christian church. Was united in marriage with Enen D. Kelley January 6th, 1870. To this union were born eight children: six girls and two boys. Seven survive her, one having died in infancy.

All of the children have united with the church, and all were at her bedside during her sickness. All were present at her death except Mrs. A. M. Black of Tyro, Kansas, and Mrs. J. A. Britton of Humansville, Mo.
