Mary Lou, one correction about James Jasper Kelley. He did not die in 1861 at Ft. Sumter, he only had one of his legs amputated. He died in late 1864 from his injuries, leaving Catherine Lovely Sharp with 5 children, one of which was a newborn. Catherine died in January 1865, and the 5 Kelley children were raised by John Sharp, JR and Catherine Dewitt White (her parents). I only know 3 of the childrens names, Thomas McBride Kelley (b2859 d1942, m Anna Davis Jones), J. Edwin Kelley, and Jones Kelley. Do you have any further information for me on this branch of Sharps? Thanks Mary Lou, Emily
