Joseph Andrew Kelly Campbell, born in Lewisburg, Penn- 
sylvania, February 27, 1832, the fifth child of John and Mary 
Helen Kelly Campbell, traces his ancestry to John Campbell, of 
Scotland, who came to America about 1750; to James and Mary 
Poak, who settled in Buffalo Valley, Pennsylvania, in 1768, and to 
John Kelly, of Ireland, who arrived in America in 1723. 

Soon after he was born his parents moved to Williamsport, 
Pennsylvania, where his boyhood was spent and he received his 
education. Upon leaving school he learned the trade of pattern 
maker. When twenty-one years of age, having been offered more 
remunerative employment in Philadelphia, he moved to the Frank- 
ford District of that city, and there spent the remainder of his 

He soon entered actively into the political life of the community, 
and for a number of years was a member of the Democratic Ward 
Executive Committee. On the 22d of March, 1868, he received the 
appointment of Miscellaneous Clerk in the office of the City Treas- 
urer, under Joseph N. Piersol, who had been elected to that office 
in October, 1867. Joseph Andrew Campbell (as he preferred to 
be known) held this position for several years, giving a bond for 
$5,000, which was signed by himself, Francis Deal and John 
Cocker. In 1870 he was nominated, on the Democratic ticket, for 
State Representative from the Seventeenth Legislative District of 
Pennsylvania, and in October of that year was elected, the Board 
of Judges, after its meeting on Tuesday, October 11, 1870, send- 
ing him official notice of his election. 

From the time of his arrival in Philadelphia he worshipped at 
The Presbyterian Church of Frankford, where he met Eliza 
Edith Deal, who, on July 13, 1856, became his wife. Eliza 
Edith Deal was the daughter of John and Elizabeth Davis Vande- 
grift Deal, and traces her ancestry to John Diel, of Germany, who 
came to America in 1688; to Jacob Meyer, of Germany, who ar- 



rived in 1750, and to Daniel and Ann Evans Davis, of Wales, who 
settled in Philadelphia in 1803. Joseph Andrew Campbell and 
Eliza Edith Deal were married by William H. Butler, an Alderman 
of the City of Philadelphia, who made the following record of the 
ceremony : 

This is to certify that on the Thirteenth Day of July 
in the Year of Our Lord One Thousand Eight Hundred 
and Fifty-six before me the Subscriber, one of the Aldermen 
in and for the City of Philadelphia, Joseph A. Campbell and 
Eliza E. Deal were joined in marriage, they declaring them- 
selves clear of all engagements, and taking each other for 
Husband and Wife, according to law. 

In Witness whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and 
seal the day and year above written. 

William H. Butler, Alderman. 

In the latter part of 1870, Joseph Andrew Campbell was stricken 
with an illness which caused his death on January II, 1871, before 
he was able to take his seat as a member of the Pennsylvania 
State Legislature to which he had been elected. Resolutions of 
sympathy were sent to the family by the Democratic Ward Execu- 
tive Committee and by the several organizations of which he was 
a member. 

Joseph Andrew Campbell was a Mason, being a member of 
Frankford Lodge, No. 292, Free and Accepted Masons of Penn- 
sylvania, and of Hand and Hand Lodge, Independent Order of 
Odd Fellows. 

Eliza Edith Deal Campbell survived her husband less than a 
year, dying December 21, 1871. 

The children of Joseph Andrew and Eliza Edith Deal Campbell 
were : John Deal Kelly, Ernest Linwood, David Frank, Joseph 
Andrew, Mary Helen and Emma Edith Campbell. 



Wife of Joseph A. K. Campbell 




After the settlement of Pennsylvania by the Quakers, William 
Penn made known to the world that anyone settling there could 
worship God according to the dictates of conscience without inter- 
ference or molestation. This news almost immediately started em- 
igration to the new country. Among the earliest of the German 
emigrants to arrive was one John Diel, as the name was then 
spelled, who brought with him his wife and his son, Peter. They 
arrived in America in 1688, landing in Philadelphia, and made that 
city their future home. They settled in that portion of the city 
known as Nicetown, where the men engaged in farming. 

Peter Diel married in 1709, and had a son born in 171 1, who 
was named Francis. In 1745 Francis Diel married Katrina Butz, 
born in 1721, and for a time resided with his parents. In 1762, 
Francis Diel purchased from William Shippen a piece of land 
situated at Nicetown Lane and Townshipline Road, now known as 
Hunting Park and Wissahickon Avenues. Here he built his home, 
which later was called the Abbey Inn. In 1771 he purchased an- 
other piece of ground from William Shippen and wife, and in 
1773 bought an adjoining piece from Tench and Anne Francis, 
making his holdings about one and three-quarters acres. The Inn 
was situated at the corner of the property, and here he lived with 
his family until his untimely death. On October 17, 1777, shortly 
before the Battle of Germantown, while standing inoffensively in 
the doorway, of his residence, Francis Diel was wantonly shot and 
killed by an unknown British soldier. 

Francis Diel died intestate, and owing to the stress of Revo- 
lutionary times, his widow, Katrina, did not take out Letters of 
Administration on his estate until December 29, 1780, more than 
three years after his death. During the period of administration 
the eldest son, John and his wife conveyed their interest to the 
mother. Finally a family agreement was reached whereby the 

widow retained the entire estate during her lifetime. 



Katrina Butz Diel died in Philadelphia on May 4, 1796, and 
disposed of the estate by will. This instrument is a model of 
brevity, but sets forth her wishes very clearly : 

"In the name of God Amen. I, Catherine Deal, of the 
Northern Liberties and County of Philadelphia, being of 
perfect sound disposing mind, memory and understanding- 
thanks be to the Almighty God therefore do hereby make 
my last Will and Testament in manner following. And first 
I order that all my just debts and funeral expenses be well 
and truly paid and in order thereto I impower my two sons 
Samuel Deal and Francis Deal to sell such of my movables 
as can be spared. 

"Item: I give and bequeath to the children of my son 
John deceased one share of my estate between them and no 

"Item: To my daughter Peggy I give and bequeath one 
share & a Coat & all my wearing apparel — to my son Peter 
Deal I give and bequeath one share. To my son Daniel Deal 
I give and bequeath one share. To my son Samuel Deal I 
give and bequeath one share & a bed & five pounds in cash 
and to my son Francis Deal I give and bequeath one share 
& my own Bed and I do hereby impower my Executors 
hereinafter named to dispose of my effects real & personal 
(excepting the personal Property above given & bequeathed) 
and impower them or either of the survivor of them to take, 
execute & acknowledge a Deed or Deeds in fee simple to 
the Purchaser or Purchasers thereof. 

"Lastly I nominate constitute & appoint my two sons 
Samuel Deal and Francis Deal Executors of this my last 
Will and Testament hereby revoking any Will & Testament 
before this made. 



"In witness whereof I have hereunto set my Hand and 
Seal this fourth day of June in the year of our Lord one 
thousand seven hundred and ninety-one.

The children of Francis and Katrina Butz Diel were: John, 
Peter, Daniel, Samuel, Francis and Margaretta Diel. The sons 
changed the spelling of the name from "Diel" to "Deal." They 
all learned the butcher's trade and lived in the Germantown and 
Nicetown Districts, with the exception of John, who moved to the 
Frankford District of Philadelphia, where he died. 

John Deal, eldest son of Francis and Katharine Butz Diel, 
was born in Nicetown, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in 1746. In 
1770 he married Elizabeth, daughter of Jacob and Catharine Ehel 
Gardener, who was born in 1750. Shortly after his marriage he 
moved to Frankford, in Oxford Township, where he was engaged 
in the trade of butcher. 

A few years after settling in Frankford, on January 28, 1785, 
John Deal purchased from the children of one Isaac Leech, tanner, 
of Cheltenham Township, 3 acres 100 perches of land in Oxford 
Township, situated on Frankford Mill Creek and Robert Adams 
Road, for ^200, the land remaining in the possession of the family 
until 1840. 

On June 13, 1777, the General Assembly formulated the fol- 
lowing Oath of Allegiance and Fidelity to the State of Pennsyl- 
vania : 

"I do swear that I renounce and refuse all allegiance to 
George III, King of Great Britain, his heirs and successors : 
and that I will be faithful and bear true allegiance to the 
Commonwealth of Pennsylvania as a free and independent 
state ; and that I will not at any time do, or cause to be done, 



any manner or thing' that will be prejudicial or injurious to 

the freedom and independence thereof as declared by Con- 
gress; and also that I will discover and make known to some 
one Justice of the Peace of the said State, all treasons or 
traitorous conspiracies which I may know, or hereinafter 
shall know to be formed against this or any of the United 
States of America." 

To this oath, John Deal, with others, subscribed on August 2, 
1779, and thereafter espoused the patriotic cause in the War of the 

John Deal died in the year 1788, his widow, Elizabeth Gardener 
Deal, surviving him until June 5, 1836, when she died at the ad- 
vanced age of 86. 

The children of John and Elizabeth Gardener Deal were: 

Catharine, born 1770; died 1773; 

Jacob, born February 2, 1772; married Edith Myers, February 
14, 1799; died June 3, 1838; 

Susannah, born December 23, 1777; married Jacob Harper; 
died May 14, 1866. 

The fifth generation of the Deal family in America is traced 
through the lives of Jacob Deal and his sister, Susannah Deal. 

Jacob Deal, second child of John and Elizabeth Gardener Deal, 
was born in the Frankford District of Philadelphia on February 2, 
1772, where he lived and was educated. He learned the trade of 
stone mason and was engaged in that occupation until his death. 
He laid the foundations of many of the more important buildings 
in Philadelphia, particularly those in the neighborhood of Frank- 

Early in life he became a member of the German Reformed 
Church of Frankford, and was made one of the deacons of the 
Church in 1802, when he was but thirty years of age.

It was here that he met Edith Myers, born March 17, 1778, 
daughter of Jacob Meyer, as the name was then spelled, whom he 
married on February 14, 1799. Jacob Meyer was a resident of 
Milltown, Cheltenham Township, Montgomery County, Pennsyl- 
vania, and one of the founders of the Frankford Church. 

Jacob Deal, with Jacob Meyer and others, was among the first 
to recognize the changed conditions in Frankford growing out of 
the increasing number of English and Scotch-Irish people who were 
making their homes in the community, and advocated the change 
from the German Reformed to the Presbyterian form of worship. 
In 1806 they petitioned for admission into the Presbyterian Church 
and upon being admitted, changed the name of the church to The 
Presbyterian Church of Frankford, which name it has retained to 
this day. In 1807 Jacob Deal was among those who requested 
that the congregation be supplied with a minister for every Sabbath, 
and in 1809 the Reverend John W. Doak was appointed minister 
of the church by the Presbytery. 

On the erection of the second church building, in 1809, Jacob 
Deal built all the stone work, the records of the church showing 
that at the end of the year there was owing to him the sum of 
thirty-three dollars. 

For the greater part of his lifetime Jacob Deal was one of the 
trustees of the church, he and his family being regular in their 

On June 5, 1836, Elizabeth Gardener Deal (mother of Jacob 
Deal) died in her eighty-seventh year. His wife, Edith Myers 
Deal, died June 1, 1837, and he died June 30, 1838, at the age of 
sixty-six. He was the grandfather of Eliza Edith Deal whose 
ancestry is here being traced. Jacob Deal, his wife and mother 
are buried in the cemetery adjoining the Church. The stones 
marking their graves bear the inscriptions : 

"In Memory of Jacob Deal, who departed this life June 
30, 1838, in the 66th year of his age. Also Edith his wife, 



who departed this life June I, 1837, in the Goth year of her 
age. Also inscribed to the memory of Myers Deal, their son, 
who died at Grand Coteau, La., October 11, 1837, aged 30 
years, 8 months. 

"In Memory of Elizabeth Deal who departed this life 
June 5, 1836 in the 87th year of her age." 

The will of Jacob Deal, proved June 10-16, 1838, was as fol- 
lows : 

"Be it remembered that I Jacob Deal of the Borough of 
Frankford in the County of Philadelphia, Mason, being weak 
in body but of sound mind memory and understanding 
do make and publish this my last will in manner following 
to wit. 

"First. It is my will and I do order that all my just 
debts and funeral expenses be duly paid and satisfied as soon 
as conveniently can be after my decease by my Executrix 
and Executor hereinafter named. 

"Item. I give and bequeath unto my wife Edith all the 
use and income of my Estate Real and Personal during her 
natural life. And after her decease I give, bequeath and 
devise all my estate of whatever kind it may be unto my 
children share and share alike agreeably to the Laws of 
Pennsylvania relating to Intestates' Estates. 

"Item. It is my will and I do order and request that the 
income derived from my father's estate be applied toward the 
maintenance of my mother during her natural life anything 
hereinbefore contained to the contrary notwithstanding. 

"And lastly. I nominate constitute and appoint my wife, 
Edith, Executrix and my son, John Deal, Executor of this 
my last will hereby revoking all other wills, legacies and 
bequests by me heretofore made and declare this and no other 
to be my last will and Testament.

seal this eighteenth day of August in the year of our Lord 
one thousand eight hundred and thirty-five.

garet Ann Deal. 

Susannah Deal, third child of John and Elizabeth Gardener 
Deal, was born in Frankford on December 23, 1777. She married 
Jacob Harper, a member of The Presbyterian Church of Frankford, 
who died on February 11, 1829. On March 21, 1840, she was

The sixth generation of the Deal family in America is traced 
through the lives of the eleven children of Jacob and Edith Myers 

John Deal, the eldest child, was born on December 12, 1799, 
in the Frankford District of Philadelphia and there received his 
education. He was engaged during his lifetime in the manufacture 
of shoes, but at various times held positions of public trust. 

He was appointed Postmaster of Frankford in 1845, and held 
that position until the outbreak of the War of Secession in 1861. 
An old resident, in telling of this time, says the accommoda- 
tions of the postomce consisted of an ordinary table with a 



red cover thrown upon it, and at one end was a box containing 
about a dozen pigeon-holes, in which the letters were placed until 
called for. In course of time the mail received grew larger and 
the postmaster was forced to engage the services of a boy to 
deliver the letters to the people who failed to come for them. 

In 1850 John Deal was elected to the office of Justice of the 
Peace and received his commission from William F. Johnston, 
Governor of the State of Pennsylvania. The original document 
is in the possession of his grandson, who lives in Philadelphia, and 
which reads as follows : 

"Pennsylvania, S. S. (State coat of arms). 

"In the name and by the authority of the Commonwealth 
of Pennsylvania. 

"William F. Johnston, Governor of the said Com- 

"To John Deal of the County of Philadelphia, Esquire. 
Whereas it appears by the return made and transmitted to 
me according to law, that you the said John Deal, have 
been duly elected a Justice of the Peace, for the Borough of 
Frankford in the County of Philadelphia. 

"Hereby giving and granting unto you, full right and 
title, to have and execute all and singular the powers, juris- 
dictions and authorities, and to receive and enjoy all and 
singular the emoluments to a Justice of the Peace lawfully 
belonging, or in anywise appertaining, by virtue of the Con- 
stitution and Laws of this Commonwealth. To have and to 
hold this Commission and the office hereby granted unto you, 
the said John Deal for the term of five years, to be computed 
from the day of the date of these presents if you shall so 
long behave yourself well.

In 1834, John Deal married Elizabeth Davis Vandegrift,

Davis, and the widow of James Vandegrift of Philadelphia. 

John Deal and his wife were members of The Presbyterian 
Church of Frankford, he having been admitted to membership 
when twenty-one years of age, and both labored zealously for the 
welfare of the Church. He was Superintendent of the Sunday 
School from 1854 to 1862 and was an elder of the Church for more 
than forty years. He served as a member of the Board of Trustees 
for forty-five years and was its Secretary for thirty-five years. His 
wife, Elizabeth, was known (throughout the Frankford District 
for her beauty of character and benevolence, which was extended 
not alone to those who were bound to her by ties of religion, but 
to all whose needs were brought to her attention. 

On February 21, 1840, John Deal filed his petition in the Or- 
phans' Court praying for a Writ of Partition in the matter of the 
estate of his grandfather, John Deal, who had died in 1788. On 
March 21, 1840, the Court awarded to his aunt, Susannah Deal 
Harper, a portion of the old estate on Frankford Mill Creek and 
Robert Adams Road ; the balance was sold and the purchase money 
divided among the children of his father, Jacob Deal.

About the middle of the eighteenth century, Jacob Meyer, 
as the name was then spelled, came from Germany to America 
and, shortly after his arrival, settled in Cheltenham Township, 
Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, and engaged in farming. 

In 1773 he bought from Edward Milnor and Susannah, his 
wife, of Roxborough, Philadelphia, seventy-seven acres of land 
in Cheltenham Township. The original deed for this purchase 
is in the possession of his great grandson, William H. Myers, of 
West Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. 

Jacob Meyer was one of the founders of the German Reformed 
Church of Frankford, where he and his family were among the

traced through the lives of Jacob, John, and Edith Myers. 

Jacob Myers, eldest child of Jacob Meyer, was born in 1762 
upon his father's farm in Cheltenham Township. While still a 
young man he served under General George Washington in the War 
of the Revolution. After the war he returned to Cheltenham 
Township and engaged in farming, and upon the death of his 
father, he inherited the farm. It was during this period that the 
family decided to change its name from "Meyer" to "Myers." 

Jacob Myers was one of the trustees of the German Reformed 
Church, and it was he, with Jacob Deal and others, who led the 
congregation into the Presbyterian faith, changing its name to The 
Presbyterian Church of Frankford. He served the Church as one

among its most regular attendants.

land to America early in the eighteenth century, and settled on a 
farm near Trenton, New Jersey, where he and his wife and two 
sons, James and John, lived until the time of the War of the Revo- 

The elder Campbell and his son James were at first in sympathy 
with the British cause, but upon the occupation of Trenton by the 
British and Hessians, and the subsequent destruction of his crops, 
John Campbell became so incensed that he joined the patriot cause 
and exerted all his energies for its success. 

At the outbreak of the War of the Revolution, John Campbell, 
the younger son, born in 1752, left his home and joined John Web- 
ster's Regiment of New Jersey Rangers. Later, being sent to the 
western frontier, he joined Captain Nicholas Miller's Company in

County, Pennsylvania, and continued to reside for a number of 



years in Lewisburg, where all their children were born. A few 
years after the death of Colonel Kelly in 1832, the Campbell family 
moved to Williamsport, Pennsylvania, where John Campbell died, 
in 1839. 

After moving to Williamsport, Mary Helen Kelly Campbell was 
admitted, February 17, 1842, to membership in the Second (now 
Covenant) Presbyterian Church upon presentation of her letter 
from the Buffalo Cross Roads Presbyterian Church, her eldest child,

1853; Mary Helen, born 1826, died 1856; Emma, born 1829, died 
1858; none of whom was married; Joseph Andrew Kelly

James Poak, and his wife, Mary, came with their children to 
Buffalo Valley, Northumberland County, Pennsylvania, shortly 
after the purchase of the land from the Indians in 1768. 

He settled at Fort Horn, on a tract of land later known as the 
Cameron Farm, at the mouth of Little Buffalo Creek, where he 
built a home and engaged in farming. He took an active part 
in community affairs and during the War of the Revolution, 
served the patriot cause as a private in the Northumberland County 
Militia, and was familiarly known as James Poak of the Valley. 

From its formation he was a member of the Buffalo Cross 
Roads Presbyterian Church, where he and his family worshipped. 

James Poak died in 1782. His widow, Mary, survived him 
until 1792. The children of James and Mary Poak were: James 
Smith, Sarah, Joseph, Deborah, Thomas, William and David Poak. 

James Smith Poak, eldest child of James and Mary Poak, was 
born in 1749. He lived for years in White Deer Township, where 
he operated a saw mill. During the War of the Revolution he was 
a private in the Northumberland County Militia, for which service 
he received, later in life, a pension. He died January 17, 1832. 

Sarah Poak, second child of James and Mary Poak, was born 
in 1752, married to Colonel John Kelly, and died January 2, 183 1. 
She was the grandmother of Joseph Andrew Kelly Campbell, 
whose ancestry is here being traced. 

Joseph Poak, third child of James and Mary Poak, was born 
in 1754. He lived in White Deer Township. During the War of 
the Revolution he served as a lieutenant in the Northumberland 
County Militia. 

Deborah Poak, fourth child of James and Mary Poak, was 
born in 1756. She was married to Ephraim Darragh, and had 



issue, a daughter, Sarah Darragh. By the will of her brother-in- 
law, Colonel John Kelly, she and her daughter inherited a portion 
of his estate. 

Thomas Poak, fifth child of James and Mary Poak, was born 
in 1760. He lived in White Deer Township. During the War of 
the Revolution he served as a private in the Northumberland County 

William Poak, sixth child of James and Mary Poak, was born 
in 1762. He married and had issue, of whom there is no record. 
He died August 13, 1830, in his sixty-eighth year. 

David Poak, seventh child of James and Mary Poak, was born 
in 1764. There is no further record. 




The unsettled condition of the times in the north of Ireland 
early in the eighteenth century was the cause of many of its 
younger men leaving the country. One of ithem, John Kelly, bid- 
ding his father, William, good-by, sailed for America and landed 
in Philadelphia. He proceeded to what was then the outskirts of 
civilization and settled, some time between 1723 and 1730, in Lan- 
caster County, Pennsylvania, and commenced trading with the 

In 1732, a dispute, lasting until 1737, arose between the Mary- 
landers and the Pennsylvanians as to the state boundary line, the 
Marylanders seeking to gain control of the land west of the Sus- 
quehanna River north of the 40 of latitude. Thomas Cresap, who, 
in 1732, was Justice of Peace for Maryland, fortified certain 
strategic points, led his people in their battles, and supported them 
in their land sales made in violation of the laws of Pennsylvania. 
On November 23, 1736, a warrant was placed in the hands of Sam- 
uel Smith, Sheriff of Lancaster County, who resided in Donegal 
Township, for the arrest of Cresap for the murder of Knowles 
Daunt. Sheriff Smith called on John Kelly, Benjamin Sterratt, 
Arthur Buchanan, Samuel Scott and twenity-six others to assist him. 
On November 24, 1736, they surrounded Cresap's house, in which 
he had rallied a number of armed men, and being unable to drive 
him out, set fire to the house, overpowered him when he came out, 
and took him in triumph to Philadelphia, where he was placed in 

During the fighting Cresap's men killed one of their own num- 
ber, Laughlin Malone. John Capper, of the Sheriff's party, was 
shot in the shoulder. 

In 1738, John Kelly assisted the commissioners to lay out the 
first border line between Pennsylvania and Maryland. 

On June 5, 1734, John Kelly requested from the proprietors the 
survey of a piece of ground of 200 acres in Lancaster County, 



which piece of ground he did not take up because of the unsettled 
state of the country. In the early part of 1750 he had a piece of 
land in Donegal Township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, con- 
sisting of 140 acres, surveyed, and on November 11, 1750, received 
a patent for the ground from the proprietors, Thomas and Richard 
Penn. Here he and his wife, Mary (whom he had married in 
1737), cultivated the ground, built their house and made their home 
for the remainder of their lives. This farm was located outside of 
what is now the town of Marietta. 

John Kelly was a member of the Old Donegal Presbyterian 
Church, which was originally organized in 1721, and is situated 
near a beautiful spring about three miles west of Mount Joy. In 
1726 the Church was organized by the Presbytery, who appointed 
the Reverend James Anderson as its Pastor, he serving until his 
death in 1740. The first church building was a log one, but in a 
short time a larger and more ornate structure was erected. 

In the month of June, 1758, John Kelly died upon his farm, 
survived by four minor children, three sons and one daughter : 

Andrew, born 1738, died (no record) ; William, born 1740, died 
after 1790; Elizabeth, born 1742, died in 1785; John, born Feb- 
ruary 11, 1744, died February 18, 1832. 

Letters of Administration were taken out July 1, 1758, by James 
Anderson and Robert Spear, they bonding themselves for £500. On 
May 15, 1759, not quite one year after the death of John Kelly, 
Sr., the Administrators filed their account with the Register of 
Wills, showing a personal estate of ^134, 19s, 6d, which sum, 
after the payment of his debts and the sum of £29, 2S, 4d to his 
son, Andrew, who had become of age, left £85, 12s, 5d, for division 
among the other three children upon the attainment of their 
majority. The real estate was held in trust until the arrival at legal 
age of the youngest son, John. 

On August 13, 1766, John having meantime become of age, 
Andrew Kelly purchased from William, Elizabeth and John their

shares in the father's real estate. The transfer of this property is 
recorded in the Recorder's Office, Lancaster, Pennsylvania, Book L, 
page 276. An extract of the conveyance follows : 

"Indenture made August 13, 1766, between William 
Kelly, Robert Hanna and Elizabeth Kelly, his wife, and John 
Kelly, all of Newberry Township, in the county of York" etc. 
(of the one part) and Andrew Kelly, of the Township of 
Donegal county of Lancaster" etc. of the other part. 

"Whereas John Kelly, late of the Township of Donegal, 
obtained a patent from Thomas and Richard Penn — Novem- 
ber 13, 1750." 

"Died intestate and left issue the above mentioned An- 
drew Kelly, William Kelly, Elizabeth Kelly (who afterward 
intermarried with Robert Hanna aforementioned and party 
to the present) and John Kelly, joint heirs to the aforesaid 
tract of land," etc. 

On August 16, 1766, Andrew Kelly conveyed the land, which 
le bought for £264, to James Bayly, who later became wagon 
naster for Lancaster County during the War of the Revolution, 
^ot long after this sale the family dispersed. 

Elizabeth Kelly and her husband, Robert Hanna, lived in New- 
terry Township. William Kelly married James Anderson's daugh- 
er, Susannah, and went to live in Maytown, and John, the young- 
st, went northwest to Northumberland County. 

Andrew Kelly, eldest child of John Kelly, Sr., and his wife, 
/lary, was born in 1738 in Donegal Township, Lancaster County, 
'ennsylvania. He lived upon his father's farm until its sale on 
August 16, 1766, after which he lived in retirement. Andrew 
Celly never married. The date of his death is not known. 

William Kelly, second child of John, Sr., and Mary Kelly, 
/as born in Donegal Township about 1740. He lived on his 
ather's farm until 1758, when he went to live with his sister, Eliza- 



beth Kelly Hanna, in Newberry Township, York County, Pennsyl- 
vania. In 1769 he married Susannah, daughter of James and Ruth 
Bayly Anderson and granddaughter of the Rev. James Anderson, 
Pastor of Donegal Church. He moved to May town, Lancaster 
County, and in 1 777-1778 was Sheriff of Lancaster County. He 
took the Oath of Allegiance to the State of Pennsylvania in 1777, 
was Collector of Excise Taxes in 1778, and later, Justice of the 
Peace. He was in Adjutant Trent's Regiment of Associates, Lan- 
caster County Militia, became lieutenant in 1781, and after the war 
resided in Maytown. His wife, Susannah, having died, he took for 
a second wife Margaret Scott. The dates of his second marriage 
and of his death are not known. The children of William and 
Susannah Anderson Kelly were : Elizabeth, Ruth, John and Ruth 

Elizabeth Kelly, third child of John, Sr., and Mary Kelly, 
was born in Donegal Township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, 
in the year 1742. In 1762 she married Robert Hanna and made 
her residence in Newberry Township, York County, Pennsylvania, 
where she died in 1785. The date of her husband's death is not 
known. The children of Robert and Elizabeth Kelly Hanna were 
Jane, Elizabeth, Susannah and Margaret. 

John Kelly, fourth child of John, Sr., and Mary Kelly, was 
born on February 11, 1744, on the farm in Donegal Township, Lan- 
caster County, Pennsylvania. This child was destined to take an 
important part in the history of his country, and it is interesting 
to note that his birthplace w r as within a stone's throw of that of 
Robert Fulton, the inventor of the steamboat. 

John Kelly grew up on the farm, remaining there after the 
death of his father in 1758. Following the marriage of his sister, 
Elizabeth, to Robert Hanna, in 1762, he went to live with them in 
Newberry Township, York County, Pennsylvania. On attaining 
his majority he received his share of his father's estate and in the 
year 1766 sold his interest in the family farm to his brother. An-

For years he had chafed at the monotony of life in a settled 
community and longed lor the dangers and excitements of the 
frontier. Accordingly, in 1768, he left his sister and went to 
Buffalo Valley, then part of Berks County, Pennsylvania. He was 
twenty-four years old, six feet two inches tall, with sandy hair and 
blue eyes, vigorous and muscular, with his body so inured to labor 
as to be almost insensible to fatigue, and a mind which understood 
correct principles with the firmness to adhere to them. Thus 
equipped he soon took a commanding position in the new com- 

Buffalo Valley had long been noted as a feeding ground for 
large numbers of bison. Buffalo Creek, flowing through the Valley, 
was the favorite bathing place for the now vanished animals, great 
numbers of which spent the summer on Buffalo Mountain. North- 
umberland County not yet having been created, the Valley was then 
part of Berks County. On November 5, 1768, these lands were 
purchased from the Indians, and on June 11, 1769, the land office 
was established and the land opened for settlement. It was here 
that John Kelly filed his application, the land being surveyed in 
August of the same year. It was situated on Spruce Run in what 
was then White Deer, now Kelly Township. It ran from Buffalo 
Creek along Spruce Run up to the bend where it turns west of the 
line of the township. Here he suffered all the privations of a 
pioneer, taking part in defending the settlements from the expedi- 
tions of hostile Indians and in time acquired a wide reputation 
as an Indian fighter. 

Many anecdotes are told of his prowess in fighting the savages 
and they add a thrill to the annals of Indian warfare. 

When the Indians menaced the safety of the population on the 
frontier he was among the first to offer his services for its defense. 
He had the principal command as colonel of scouting parties. A 
company of men under him was stationed for three months on the 
Great Island to guard the advanced settlements and later his regi- 
ment of militia garrisoned Fort Reid at what is now Lock Haven, 
a few miles above Fort Horn. 



On May 5, 1778, he was in command with part of his battalion 
on duty at Penn's Valley and was also in command at the capture of 
Freeland's Fort. 

On July 3, i//8, occurred the historic massacre of Wyoming, 
which so demoralized the settlers of Buffalo Valley that they aban- 
doned their farms and fled in terror to Fort Augusta. This has 
very aptly been described as the "Big Runaway" which started on 
July 5, 1778. Colonel Kelly was one of the first to return and 
it is told that for two harvests the reapers took their rifles to the 
fields for protection, some doing guard duty while others gathered 
the grain. 

In May, 1779, a marauding party, consisting of fifteen to seven- 
teen Indians, killed John Sample and his wife and drove off Ser- 
geant Christian Van Gundy, Sr., and his men, who had come to 
rescue them. Colonel Kelly, who w r as in command of the North- 
umberland Militia, pursued seven of the Indians, taking with him 
his dog, which had been trained to follow an Indian trail and would 
immediately drop upon approaching one. The Colonel separated 
from his party and made a detour. As he proceeded rapidly 
through the woods he fell into a hole made by an uprooted tree. 
Glancing about, much to his astonishment, he saw five Indians sit- 
ting like turkeys on the trunk. He made a hole through the root 
and leveled his rifle; simultaneously there was a crack of the rifles 
of his men from the opposite side. Four of the Indians were killed ; 
the fifth, after a vigorous chase, escaped. 

The Colonel's cabin stood in front of the building now stand- 
ing on what was his farm, near a spring which ran along the pres- 
ent road. One night he was awakened by the growling of his dog. 
He arose and through a hole cut in the door saw something moving 
in the bushes at the end of an oak log across Spruce Run, which 
proved to be an Indian. Taking aim at him as he raised his head, 
the Colonel fired, the ball passing through the Indian's skull and 
killing him instantly. Without assistance. Colonel Kellv buried the 
body in a lot by the spring, marked the place with a stone, and, 



fearing the vengeance of the Indians, kept the matter secret for 
many years. The story became known in 1832, through the 
curiosity of Isaac Bower, a boy in the Colonel's employ, who raised 
the stone and finding ithe skull, hid it under the porch of the house, 
and produced it several days later when the Colonel was in con- 
versation with Doctor Robert Vanvalzah. 

As so much of his life was spent in righting the Indians, it is 
not surprising that Colonel Kelly developed an intense antipathy 
to them. lit is told of him that upon being asked to give funds to 
assist in evangelizing them, he said he would not give a cent to 
send preachers to them, but would give any sum required to buy 
ropes to hang them. 

In 1771, when but twenty-seven years of age, he was a captain 
in the First Battalion of Associates of Northumberland County, 
and at thirty-one received the following commission as major : 


"In Assembly, September 12, 1775. To John Kelly, Esq. 

"We reposing especial Trust and Confidence in your 
Patriotism, Valour, Conduct, and Fidelity, DO, by these 
presents, constitute and appoint you to be Major of the 
First Battalion of Associators in the County of Northumber- 
land for the Protection of this Province, against all hostile 
Enterprizes, and for the Defence of American Liberty. 

"You are therefore carefully and diligently to discharge 
the Duty of a Major as aforesaid by doing and performing 
all Manner of Things thereunto belonging. 

"And we do strictly charge and require all Officers and 
Soldiers under your Command, to be obedient to your orders. 
And you are to observe and follow such Orders and Direc- 
tions from Time to Time as you shall receive from the 
Assembly during their Sessions and in their Recess, from 
the present or any future Committee of Safety, appointed 
by the Assembly of this Province, or from your superior 



Officers, according to the Rules and Regulations for the 
better Government of the Military Association in Pennsyl- 
vania, and pursuant to the Trust reposed in you. This Com- 
mission to continue in Force until revoked by the Assembly, 
or by the present or any succeeding Committee of Safety. 

"Signed by Order of the Assembly. 

"John Morton, Speaker."

grandson, residing in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. 

During August, 1772, John Kelly served on the first grand jury 
empaneled in Northumberland County, the first court of the county 
being established at Fort Augusta. It will be recalled that North- 
umberland County was erected March 21, 1772, out of parts of 
Berks, Bedford, Lancaster, Cumberland and Northampton 
Counties and extended as far west as Lake Erie, Pike County on 
the east, New York State on the north, and the mouth of Mahan- 
tango Creek on the south. 

In December, 1775, he was with Plunket's Expedition to Wyo- 
ming, which attempted to subdue the disorders arising out of the 
refusal of the Connecticut People to obey the laws of Pennsylvania, 
they claiming that under their charter they owned the land as far 
south as the forty-first degree of latitude, which passes a mile or 
more north of what is now Lewisburg. Baffled in their attempt 
to storm the breastworks, and the weather being intolerably severe, 
it was deemed advisable to abandon the expedition. 

On July 8, 1776, John Kelly was elected a member of the con- 
vention to meet in Philadelphia for the purpose of adopting a 
constitution for the Pennsylvania State Government. The con- 
vention met on July 15, 1776, in Philadelphia, and Doctor Benja- 
min Franklin was chosen President. It continued, by adjourn- 
ments, until September 28, when the Constitution was adopted and 



At the outbreak of the War of the Revolution he was first a 
captain in Colonel Cookson Long's battalion on the frontier, and 
later, after helping to organize the Associators, was a major in 
Colonel James Potter's Battalion, and was present at the surrender 
of the Hessians at Trenton. 

It was at the Battle of Princeton that Colonel, then Major, 
Kelly performed a distinguished service which entitles him to a 
place among the heroes of his country. 

After his success at Trenton, General Washington was making 
a forced march to Princeton, being rapidly pursued by the British 
under General Cornwallis. As Cornwallis neared Worth's Mills on 
Stony Brook, Washington sent orders to Colonel Potter to destroy 
the bridge in the path of the advancing British. Colonel Potter 
ordered Major Kelly to send a detail for the purpose. The 
Major, stating that he preferred not to order another to do what 
he might be suspected of being afraid to do himself, asked and 
received permission to lead the detail himself. In the midst of 
the destruction of the bridge, the British opened a heavy fire of 
round-shot, several balls of which struck the log upon which he 
stood and threw him into the stream. Not expecting him to escape, 
the bridge being destroyed, his party moved off. By great exertion 
he reached the shore through the high water and floating timbers 
and hastened to join his command. Encumbered as he was with 
wet and frozen clothes, he made a prisoner of an armed British 
scout and brought him into camp. Major Kelly's destruction of 
this bridge was of great value to the American Army at Princeton 
upon the momentous third of January, 1777. 

In later years, Colonel Kelly told that during this period, for 
three days at one time, there was no service of provisions and 
on the march, before and after the battle, they were thirty-six 
hours under arms without sleep. 

On May 6, 1778, Colonel Kelly was appointed agent for con- 
fiscated estates, and in 1780 was elected a member of the Pennsyl- 
vania Assembly. 



At a meeting held at Milton, Pennsylvania, on March 4, 1801, 
to celebrate the inauguration of President Thomas Jefferson, Colo- 
nel Kelly had the distinction of proposing the toast: "May this be 
the happy day to unite the hearts of all true Americans in their 
duty to God and our illustrious President." 

When the Northumberland County Militia was enrolled on July 
16, 1780, Colonel Kelly was in command, but they were discharged 
August 15, of the same year. In 1781, when they were re-enrolled, 
Colonel Kelly was in command of the First Battalion. 

On August 2, 1783, Colonel Kelly was appointed Justice of 
the Peace for Northumberland County, which office he filled with 
kindness and impartiality for twenty years. In 1794, Colonel Kelly 
was elected Lieutenant Colonel of the First Regiment of Northum- 
berland County Militia, and received the following Commission 
from Thomas Mifflin, Governor of the State of Pennsylvania : 

"In the Name and by the Authority of the Common- 
wealth of Pennsylvania, Thomas Mifflin, Governor of the 
said Commonwealth, to John Kelly, of the County of North- 


"Know that you, the said John Kelly (being duly elected 
and returned), are hereby Commissioned Lieutenant Colonel 
of the First Regiment of the Northumberland Brigade of the 
Militia of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, to Have 
and to Hold this Commission, exercising all the powers and 
discharging all the duties thereto belonging and attached for 
the term of seven years. In Testimony whereof, I have set 
my Hand, and caused the great Seal of the Said State to be 
affixed to these Presents, at Philadelphia, the Twenty-eighth 
Day of February, in the Year of Our Lord One Thousand 
Seven Hundred and Ninety-four and of the Commonwealth 
the eighteenth. 

"By the Governor, A. J. Dallas, Secretary."

The original copy of this document is in the possession of a 
great-grandson residing in Philadelphia. 

After the War of the Revolution he returned to his comfort- 
able homestead in what is now Kelly Township and devoted his time 
to farming, with occasional hunting trips for big game. It is said 
that he was particularly fond of hunting buffaloes and had the repu- 
tation of having killed over one hundred of them. Stories of some 
of his hunts have been handed down to us by Michael Grove, one 
of the pioneers of Buffalo Valley, who died in 1827, one of which 
relates how, late in the fall of 1800 after the first snowfall, while 
out with one of his neighbors, Michael McClister, looking for wolf 
tracks, he saw three buffaloes, a bull, a cow and a calf, at the edge 
of the wood in one of his clearings, which was a short distance 
south of the Kelly home. McClister fired, killing the calf, but the 
bull and cow escaped into the forest. This pair, which were of 
enormous size, were seen from time to time in the neighborhood, 
but managed always to elude their pursuers. It seemed that fate 
was preserving them to fall before the prowess of the Colonel. 

On the morning of January 9, 1801, he was riding on his way 
to the mill, mounted on "Brandywine," his old charger of Revolu- 
tionary times. It was a misty morning and had not his horse 
snorted the Colonel would have ridden directly into a mammoth 
buffalo bull which blocked the narrow crossroads. Dismounting 
and taking careful aim, he shot the bison through the heart. 

The spot where this buffalo was killed, which is supposed to 
have been the last of its species shot in a wild state in Pennsyl- 
vania, became known as Buffalo Cross Roads. The huge skull, 
nailed to a pitch pine tree, was a familiar landmark for many years. 
About 1820 it was blown from the tree in a gale, when it was 
picked up by one of the Kleckner children, related to the Kellys, 
and for half a century reposed in the attic of the Kleckner home- 
stead in the vicinity of Buffalo Cross Roads. When the mansion 
was remodeled some years ago, these relics were destroyed in ignor- 
ance of their interesting association.

Colonel John Kelly was all his life a staunch Presbyterian, wor- 
shipping at the old Buffalo Cross Roads Presbyterian Church almost 
from the time of its erection in 1775, and was one of its liberal 

In 1787 the Reverend Hugh Morrison became Pastor, and in 
1 79 1, when the pews of the church were first numbered. Colonel 
Kelly selected pew 33, occupying it with his family, he having mar- 
ried Sarah, daughter of James and Mary Poak, of White Deer, in 
1773. For a time he shared the pew with Captain Joseph Poak and 
later with John McLaughlin. His mother-in-law, Mary Poak, the 
widow of James Poak, selected pew 23, which she and her family 
occupied until her death in 1792. Her sons kept the pew until the 
old church was torn down and a new one erected in 1816. 

Colonel Kelly took a prominent part in all public affairs until 
near the end of his life, when he was incapacitated by disease. He 
had the honor during his lifetime of having that part of the land 
where he lived erected into a separate township and called "Kelly"' 
after him. It was formed in 1823 from part of White Deer Town- 
ship and at first was called "Pike," but in 1824 this was changed 
to "Kelly." The Colonel was a firm believer in the value of land 
in Pennsylvania and during his lifetime took out patents for 
thousands of acres in various parts of the State, at his death being 
possessed of over 3000 acres. 

It was the custom in Buffalo Valley, on the occasion of a wed- 
ding, to welcome the bride with a party composed of elderly folk. 
The following is a list of those present Wednesday evening, Octo- 
ber 20, 1824, at what was probably the homecoming of William 
Linn, of Kelly, who had married Jane Morrow, of Franklin County, 
on October 14: 

Colonel John Kelly, Elizabeth Kelly, Dr. Robert Vanvalzah, 
Elizabeth Vanvalzah, William Poak, Esq., and wife, Andrew 
McBeth and wife, James Dale, Esq., Eliza Dale, Colonel Aaron 
Chamberlain and wife, John Campbell, Maria Campbell, Thomas 
Sawyer, Elizabeth Sawyer, William Linn, Charles Maclay and 
Elizabeth Vanvalzah. 


Monument erected, 1835, in honor of 

Colonel John Kelly 

at Lewisburg, Penna. 


The next evening at the same place the festivities were taken up 
by the young people, among whom were William Kelly, Andrew 
Kelly, Joseph Kelly, Robert P. Maclay, Samuel Gamble, James 
Mathers, F. F. Linn, James Sawyer, Joseph Candor, John Young, 
John Vanvalzah, Robert Foster, John Chamberlain, Mrs. S. Kelly, 
Miss Sarah Darragh, Sarah McClellan, Margaret and Catherine 
McClellan, Sarah and Hetty Foster, Catherine and Mary Hood, 
Frances Chamberlain, Elizabeth and Margaret Vanvalzah, Elinor 
Young and Jane Davidson. 

On January 2, 1831, Colonel John Kelly was shocked by the 
sudden death of his wife, Sarah. The evening before she had re- 
tired in her usual health. During the night she arose and prepared 
for herself a cup of tea. Later she was heard groaning and com- 
plaining of pains in her stomach, but before the family could reach 
her side she died. Colonel Kelly died the following year, February 
18, 1832, at the advanced age of 88. He was buried beside his 
wife in the Cemetery of the Presbyterian Church at Lewisburg. At 
the funeral, the Honorable James Merrill delivered an address on 
the life and character of this distinguished citizen. 

On Wednesday, April 8, 1835, a beautiful monument to his 
memory was erected by his family, in the Presbyterian Cemetery, 
the occasion affording an opportunity for a public demonstration 
in his honor. Three companies of cavalry, two from Northumber- 
land and one from Union County, together with three companies 
of infantry, formed the military lines, and a host of ladies, with 
several hundred citizens and strangers, formed the civil proces- 
sion. The order of procession was : 

Trumpeters of cavalry, a section of cavalry, band of music, the 
companies of infantry (in sections of four), the Revolutionary 
soldiers, citizens, professional gentlemen, the monument (drawn 
by four gray horses), the master architect and four journeymen, 
the orator and clergy, relatives, the field officers, ladies, a section 
of cavalry. 

The whole was flanked by two lines of cavalry and, thus formed, 
proceeded to the cemetery under command of the Grand Marshall, 



where the military presented arms and the citizens uncovered. The 
architect then placed the monument in its place. After the Mar- 
shall made the dedication, the Hon. James Merrill delivered an 
address, after which the infantry fired appropriate salutes from 
both sides of the monument and over it, which were followed by 
a general fire from the cavalry. 

The procession was then re-formed, returned to the place from 
which it started, and was then dismissed. 

The following are the inscriptions on the monument, on the one
