Violet Welch searching for her brother Calvin Kelly

MR. EDITOR-I wish to inquire
for my brother, Calvin Kelly. He
left home during the war. The last
time I heard from him, in 1876, he
was in Chicago, Illinois. Our
father's name was George. He be-
longed to Lee Bentley at Law-
renceburg, Lawrence county, Tenn.
Our mother's name was Nancy;
she belonged to Widow Sallie Kel-
ly, on Knob Creek, 6 miles from
West Point, Lawrence county,
Tenn. There were eight children
of us, five boys and three girls:
Henry, Calvin, Louis, John and
George; Violet, Adeline, Marion.
Brother Calvin said in his letter
that he had been married, and two
children, a boy and a girl, were
living; the boy was Thomas, I for-
get the girl's name. His wife and
one child are dead. Our mother
was dead when he left. Our father
died Nov. 5, 1882. My name is
Violet Welch now. Address me,
in care of Rev. H. C. Welch, Law-
renceburg, Lawrence county, Tenn.
