WILLIAM KELLY

William KELLY, farmer, section 12, Monroe Township, is a native of Londonderry, Ireland, where he was born August 1, 1837, son of Peter and Sarah KELLY. When he was ten years of age his parents emigrated to America, first locating in New York City, where he grew to manhood, and served his time as an apprentice in learning the trade of brick-layer and plasterer. In 1854 he removed to Bureau County, Illinois, where he resided about ten years, working at his trade, mining and farming. In 1880 he came to Ringgold County, and settled upon his present farm, in Monroe Township, which was then wild land. He has eighty acres of well-cultivated land, a good story-and-a-half residence, good buildings for stock, orchard, and native shade trees. He is engaged in farming and stock-raising. In 1870 he was married to Miss Susan NEGLEY, of Bureau County, Illinois, and they have six children - John, Sarah, Mary, William, Martha and Charley. Mr. KELLY is a member of the Masonic order, and politically is a Democrat. By fair and honest dealing he has gained the respect and confidence of all who know him, and is one of the best citizens of the township. Postoffice, Beaconsfield.
