Joshua KELLEY II
Ms. __?__
WARNING:  Secondary sources have this Joshua KELLEY married to Rebecca ELLIOTT in 1812 in Baltimore, MD.  Our subject was born in 1790 in Huntingdon Co., PA, and his father was in Hardin Co., KY, by the 1810 census, so I simply cannot rationalize our subject going back to Maryland to get married.  I believe two different Joshua KELLEYs are being mixed up here.  Joshua was a popular given name in this family, and it seems probable that the Joshua KELLEY who married in Baltimore in 1812 is the son of one of the KELLEY families that stayed in Baltimore, not one of the branches that moved west.  We do not, in fact, know the name of our subject's wife because she died before 1850.

Birth:  11 Oct 1790, Huntingdon Co., PA
Death:  6 Mar 1863

Joshua KELLEY
Birth: 11 Oct 1790, Baltimore, Maryland; Death: 06 Mar 1863
Father: Joshua KELLY
Source: patron submission
Based on his own census record (see 1850 below) and his father's 1790 census record (q.v.), Joshua was born in Huntingdon Co., PA.  Or, based on our subject's 1860 census record (see below), our subject was born in KY.  I believe the PA birthplace is the correct one, but either way, he was not born in MD.

Could this be our subject?  If so, was McArthur the child of a prior wife?  A Ms. McARTHUR, perhaps.

Death: 6 Mar 1863; Burial: Mar 1863, Gosport Cem., Gosport, Owen Co., IN
Father: Joshua KELLEY (1752-1834)
Marriage: 18 Oct 1812

For reasons given above, I simply do not buy that the Joshua KELLEY who married Rebecca ELLIOTT is our subject.
John B. KELLEY is their grandson, not their son; he's son of Miles C. KELLEY, who was killed in the Civil War.

Either the ages of the three girls born between 1830 and 1835 are wrong in 1850 or they're wrong here, or the enumerator erred on the number of daughters.
