Tombstone Inscription

The year of birth for William is likely in error. More contemporary records from his younger years indicate his year of birth as 1892.

Biographical

William Leroy Kelly is the son of Daniel Kelly and Mary "Minnie" Janice Welch Kelly. His grandparents were both born in Ireland. He was born in and died in Greenwood, Nebraska.

Sina Harriet Bellinger was the daughter of John William Bellinger and Emma Harriet Landon. Her grandparents were Daniel Landon and Anne Jane McVoy. Sina's funeral card states she was born in Fremont, Nebraska, which is possible since the Bellingers lived in Fremont for a while. She may also have been born in Greenwood, Nebraska.

Sina and Bill grew up together in Greenwood and married August 10, 1913. They had five children: Maxine Dorothy, Margaret Janice, Helen Marcella, William Jr, and Patricia Landon, my mother.

Sina and Bill were my grandparents.
