In Briley's Memorial History and Cemetery Directory of Winn Parish,
on page 224 in the Pollock Cemetery section, a Mrs. M.R. Kelly is
listed b. March 7, 1830, d. Feb. 8, 1918. Upon first discovery of
this listing, I assumed this was Matilda Caroline, the wife of Martin
R. Kelly, my ggf.
However, my cousin Mrs. Doris Box of Montgomery provided information
that Martin R. and Matilda Caroline Kelly are buried in the Brown
Cemetery. Matilda's headstone shows the date of her death to be Jan.
11, 1889 (no birthdate shown); Martin R.'s date of death is shown as
July 9, 1902 or 1907.
Does anyone know of the Mrs. M.R. Kelly buried in Pollock? This may
be the Mrs. Mary Elliott who married a Martin R. Kelly in 1892. He
filed for divorce from her in 1893. I'm also still seeking
information on Mrs. Mary Elliott.
