Hi Tony
Many thanks. Dont you just love that Trove site.

I remembered after I posted that message that I could get John Kellys parents name from the NSW bdm's online. But not the John Kelly I'm after.

I am trying to find a John Kelly who was 10yrs old in February 1860. Father dead and mother was in the launatic Asylum. I dont have the name of parents. He was raised by my gggrandfather in SA until he was 17 1/2. (Archive info) His parents were probably Catholic most records will be hard to find.

I suspect but not sure yet that his father was Patrick Kelly of Morphett Vale SA who died 1856. Sons at the time were Patrick Edward Kelly age 3(Obit says was orphaned??). Also had brothers John Kelly (NSW) and James Kelly possibly others at the time.

I have lots of leads but nothing to point to a particular family yet and there were many Kelly families.
Another needle in the haystack I'm afraid.
