Dear Leslie,

I talked to one of my aunts tonite and she said that Prue Kelly was not related to her family but she knew him. His father, Luther, had a tiny store in the "Y" of the Norris-Six Mile Rd. where the left branch goes to Cateechee. Their "home place" was a very attractive, old, two story house abt. 50 yards or so further down on the Cateechee Rd
. She went on to say that Luther's wife, [Prue's mother] was a Madden from the Lawrence Chapel area and that there is a Madden Bridge Rd. named for the family. Also that Prue was married to a Frances Green from Cateechee but they were separated. He moved to the Rocky Bottom area [Sunset] and was a caretaker for some woman there whose name she did not know. Prue had a sister, Irene, who was married to a Porter and they lived around Pickens.

When I was growing up in the Cateechee-Norris area a Reavis had the store and he had 2 sons, one named Rufus and I don't remember the name of the other one. This would have been in mid 40' to early 50's.

My aunt also said the house was empty and had been for sometime and had fallen into disrepair. The last time I was there which was this past fall, the store building was in such disrepair that it was almost on the ground.

There is a website that has lots of information on the families in the Anderson-Oconee-Pickens area that has Kelly information on it. You may already know of it but if you don't it is . This Kelly line may not be yours. My aunt said there is lots of Kellys in Pickens but none are related to them. I have just started intensive research in Nov. of that area and I have seen Kellys in the early 1800's and I feel sure if they were traced all the way back they would be connected. I'm researching the Fraziers and Russells from that area. Good luck and let me know if I can find out anything else for you.Lucy
