This is my great grandparents...I was always told that his father was Moses James Fox... that is until I found his family on the 1900 Census, Yancey Cty, Brush Creek, Family #21.....
This Census shows his birthdate of SEPTEMBER 1843...that makes him 1 YEAR younger than Moses James Fox, so they can not be father and son!!!! Can anyone help me with this line?
Do you know his date of death?

From the date of their marriage and birthdates of children...McKelly didn't start having children until he was
43 years old? Was he married before he married Jenny?

William McKelly & Jenny (Rogers) Fox had the following children:

John Richmond Fox (b:9/27/1888-d:3/15/1909) he married Nancy Elizabeth "Lizzie" Laws

Elizabeth "Lizzie" Fox (b;8/1890-d:?) she married ? Austin

Moses James Fox (b:1/26/1892-d:12/24/1952) he married Lillie Dovie (Fox)(daughter of James Skelton Fox & Cora (Miller) Fox)

Thurman Fox (b:10/29/1895-d:11/11/1980) he married Birdie (Fox)(daughter of John Elijah Fox & Loretta "Rettie" (Hunter) Fox)

Lillie Fox (b:5/1896-d:?) she married ?Henley

Leona Fox (b:5/7/1898-d:4/12/1981) she married L. Hensley

May Fox (b: 4/1900-d:?) she married ?Brown

Cora Fox (b:10/1883-d:?) she married Penley Wyatt

Margaret "Maggie" Fox (b:5/10/1885-d:10/16/1968) she married John William Laws

Dewey William Fox (b:6/7/1901-d:12/29/1977)
