John KELLY of Springfield, Otsego Co, NY in 1790's

I am looking for information on John Kelly (from Ireland) and family in Springfield in the 1790's.

According to "Otsego county New York Geographical and Historical" by Edwin F Bacon, Ph B. 1902 Oneonta NY:

"...Springfield was set off from Cherry Valley in 1797...
In the year 1762 five families took up lands in the town, viz.: those of John KELLY, Richard Ferguson and James young in the eastern part, Gustavus Klmph and Jacob Tynart at the head of the lake. Very few additions were made to this little community until after the Revolution."

Any information would be greatly appreciated.
