I am working on the lines of Kelley and Scott who were in Houston Co.Texas.

Anyone know who the following Kelley persons are?
~S.D.Kelley b:6/26/1847 d: 12/13/1888 buried Center Hill cemetery-Lovelady,Texas
~Obie Lee Kelley b:10/16/1924 d: 8/25/1950 buried Center Hill-Lovelady,Texas
~Henden Lee Kelley b:11/26/1928 d: 8/18/1953/Center Hill

My line of Kelley:
Jarrett Kelley and Mary Jane Kelley--brother and sister
both buried Center Hill Cemetery/Lovelady ,Texas. Both died in 1901.

Jarrett Kelley,jr married at least 3 known times.
~Nancy Jane Hollingsworth,M.Isabella Moore, Martha Amanda(?)

~~per the 1900 census HCT-Martha Amanda(??) shows she and her parents were born ALABAMA. I am looking for what her maiden name was...
The 1900 census also shows she had 6 children and 3 were still alive. She must have married Jarrett Kelley.jr. about 1881/ could she have been married before? Or is there children other unknown-

The census shows that she states she has been married 18 yrs

1. Nancy Jane Hollingsworth and Jarrett Kelley were married in 1869. They were in Arkansas in 1870.

In 1880---Jarrett was now with wife #2 M.Isabella Moore and the children assumed to be born to Nany Jane.

M.Isabella Moore and Jarrett Kelley had a son Charles Bell Kelley --and per an article i read-she died in childbirth.I have found no record of her place of burial.

3. Martha Amanda(???) is buried beside Jarrett Kelley in Center Hill Cemetery/Lovelady,Texas

Mary Jane Kelley married Matthew Taylor Scott (my grgr)

Any help appreciated....
