Hi, I was a member of Raymond Kelly, Project, my test of my cousin was at RG, Sorensen Labs, It has a brief of my family, from Wake County NC to Anson, NC, to Perry County, Al then to Washington County, AL and Sumter and Choctaw County, AL, I believe Jesse dad is John Kelly in 1790 Edgecombe Census. Raymond and I both have a John Kelly in the same family circles, but we don’t match. I took the Family Finder test in Mar, so if you matchmaybe this is why, I’ve never found a match in ysearch, if you have tested from this family, please let me know. Happy to be here. DJ,

What do you think Dawn Kelly?
From the Book Bradley County by Robert L. George, Mitchell T. Kinder. These are descendants of my 4x and 5x great grandparents.
My Kelley/Kelly line has been my biggest brick wall. Since my folks started to do genealogy in the 1980's, I have only been able to go one more generation back. The photo is from my 2nd great grandfather's bible. He sketched a picture of a tower and written the Kelly motto underneath "Turris fortis mihi deus." Michael Britt Kelly and 3 of his children (all born during the famine) immigrated to the U.S. about 1867. He was a schoolteacher/tutor. I have discovered that he taught at a Church of Ireland parish school in Beagh in Limerick County and was baptized Catholic in Bruff, the son of Andrew Kelly and Margaret Britt. Andrew Kelly or O'Kelly may have been a public house keeper in Bruff. I am not ready to bite the bullet and pay to have one of my brothers do a Y-DNA test, yet. (I just did the National Geographic test.) I was tested at ancestry and uploaded to ftDNA - (Kit B197296) and GEDMatch (A005587). So far, besides immediate family members, the only Kelley relatives, besides immediate family, that I have confirmed are descendents of 3 of my dad's uncles.--- Any other Limerick Kellys out there.? Do you maintain a list of GEDmatch numbers?
