Descendants of Jemima Kelley
Generation No. 1
1.  JEMIMA1 KELLEY was born 1826 in Ala, and died Abt. 1875 in Calhoun Co,
 Ms.
                      Notes for JEMIMA KELLEY:
	Jemima Kelly came from Alabama to Ponotoc County,Ms.,
     and then to Banner, Calhoun County, sometime before the 1870
     census.  It is believed that Jemima was never married, and her 
     children had different fathers.  
	On the 1870 census, her son, Thomas and his family were
     living with her, and there was a Mary Kelly, age about 70, living
     with her as well.   I believe this to be her mother.
	I've been told that Jemima died about 1875, and since I 
     did not find Mary Kelly listed on the 1880 census, I believe she
     must have died sometime between 1870 and 1880.
	Jemima is buried at Spring Creek Cemt., laying beside her is
     another stone with the name Marg Kelly b/1863, how this person is
     related is unknown.
	Almost everyone buried at Spring Creek is descended from
     Jemima or related by marriage.
Found in Ponotoc county 1850 census
