    Notes 

    • (1) Elizabeth Ann Grubb:

      NOTES:

      Mary A. McKEE was the daughter of Anthony and Nancy (AGNEW) McKEE who were among the early settlers of Shelby Co., IN. Ref #3, (Peatie, 1896) also states that Mary's father was a soldier in the Western Dep't of the U.S. during the War of 1812. (Compiler has been unable to confirm this.)

      Mary and her husband James KEELY moved from Shelby Co., IN to Indianapolis, Marion County, IN about 1843. They then located in Fulton Co. about 1852. James preceded Mary in death by less than one year. Their oldest son, Samuel, was appointed administrator for the probating of their estate.

      Phoebe (KEELY) GILCHRIST was the fifth of the KEELY's 10 children.

      The daughter named "Emmaline Agnes" apparently died in infancy. She was 3 years old on the 1860 census but does not appear again. Probate records and Peaties "History" both list Nancy, widow of Thomas McANALLY, as one of the survivors of James and Mary (KEELY) McKEE.

      James KEELY's obituary states that this couple lost 3 children to death "in infancy." The other children, who are listed in the obituary, as well as in the county and family histories, appear in the records of this genealogy.

      Wednesday, December 28, 1892, the following obituary appeared in "The Rochester Sentinel":

      "Mother KEELEY, consort of James KEELEY, died Thusday morning after a protracted illness, aged about 75 years.

      Deceased was born in Ohio, came to Indiana in early life and married the late James KEELEY. Thirteen children were born to the union--nine of whom survive. She was a devout member of the Methodist church and widely known and beloved for her charity and motherly interest in the welfare of her large circle of acquaintances.

      The funeral service was conducted Saturday by Rev. BRIGGS and the remains were laid to rest in the same grave with those of her husband which were removed from the Citizens cemetery to the Odd Fellows."
