Family Focus: Eleanora Silena McRobie Kelley
Eleanora Silena McROBIE (John William) was born in 1834 in Maryland. She was the oldest child of Delilah Murphy. Her date of death and place of burial are currently unknown.
Eleanora married Samuel J KELLEY on 17 Jun 1856. His date of birth and date of death are unknown.
Eleanora and Samuel had the following children:
Delilah L KELLEY was born in 1858 in Maryland.
David KELLEY was born in 1860 in Maryland.
Elizabeth KELLEY was born in 1862 in Maryland.
Roda A KELLEY was born in 1864 in Maryland.
Unfortunately I have found very little information on Eleanora, and almost nothing on Samuel. I have looked for the children in later records and still haven’t managed to find them. I believe that Eleanora most likely remarried and that her and her children are listed with a new last name. If anyone knows of something that I missed, I would love to see it. I haven’t seen any trees or charts that list even Eleanora’s children.
Update: I have been informed that Roda Kelley is listed as a beneficiary in Delilah Murphy McRobie’s Will. If anyone can provide a copy of the will as proof, please email it to: McRobieFamilyTree@gmail.com.
1870 Census. Eleanora is listed as “Ellen Kelley.”
