Margaret KELLEY
Birth:  10 Aug 1801, Garrard Co., KY
Death:  ca. 1852, Owen Co., IN
Occupation:  farmer
Father:  Isaac MARKSBURY (c1758-1842)
Mother:  Susannah RADCLIFF (1762-1810); m. 27 Jan 1794, Lincoln Co., KY
Marriage-1:  20 Jan 1819, Lincoln Co., KY
Wife-1:  Lucy HUFFMAN
Birth:  ca. 1801, Garrard Co., KY
Death apparently:  in or after 1840, possibly by 1841, definitely by 1847/8
Father:  Henry HUFFMAN (c1757-1827)
Mother:  Milly SHIP / SHIPP (c1761- ); m. 24 Aug 1780, Amherst Co., VA
Wife-2:  Margaret KELLEY
Birth:  1816/7, KY
Death:  1870-80, presumably in Wayne Twp., Owen Co., IN
Occupation:  homemaker
Father:  Joshua KELLEY II
Mother:  Ms. __?__

Margaret is said by some to be a sister of Lucy HUFFMAN, but Margaret is not mentioned in Henry HUFFMAN's 1827 will where Lucy MARKSBURY is mentioned.  More importantly, Lucy's mother, Milly, would have been much too old to have birthed a child in ca. 1816, because she would have been some 56 years old at the time.  There is a strong case to be made and some secondary sources show that she's the daughter of Joshua KELLEY.  Note that Joshua is living with her in the 1860 census, that he is known to have had a daughter Margaret's age, and that Margaret named a son, Joshua.  If Joshua's wife was, indeed, Rebekah BROWN, then Margaret named a daughter and son, in succession, for her parents.

Children with Lucy HUFFMAN:

  3.  (Son B) MARKSBURY, b. 1825-30

  5.  (Daughter A) MARKSBURY, b. 1825-30
  6.  (Daughter B) MARKSBURY, b. 1830-35

born in IN:
  7.  Samuel MARKSBURY, b. 1832/3
  8.  Lucinda MARKSBURY, b. 11 Dec 1836, Putnam Co., IN
  9.  (Son D) MARKSBURY, b. 1835-40
10.  Eliza J. MARKSBURY, b. 1838/9

11.  George MARKSBURY, b. 1841/2
12.  Richard MARKSBURY, b. 1843/4
13.  Rebecca MARKSBURY, b. 1846/7

Unless we find a record of Lucy's death or of Margaret's marriage, we can't really be certain which children belong to which mother although, based on the age of the wife in the 1840 census, she would appear to be Lucy, so that only brings into question the mother of the children born between 1840 and 1850.  Margaret's apparent father was named, Joshua, so I think we can be certain Joshua and his younger siblings are Margaret's.  That leaves only the three above uncertain.

No. & Sex Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
1 male 19-25* 1794-1801 = Richard (b. 1801)

1 female 16-25 1794-1804 = Lucy (b. ca. 1801)
1 person engaged in agriculture
*In the 1820 Census, the third column is age class 16-18 and the fourth column is age class 16-25, which means any individual in column three is duplicated in column four.  So, for an accurate representation of the household, the number in column three should be subtracted from the number in column four. If, after the subtraction, any individuals remain in column four, then they have to be age 19-25, thus creating a "new," more precise age class.

Joshua KELLEY is said to be Margaret's father, and his living with her supports that claim, as does her having named a son, Joshua.

If just George and Richard were living out, I'd say that was a clear sign they were Lucy's children.  However, that doesn't explain Mary, who would be the youngest and surely Margaret's child.  I have yet to find a genealogical link between our subjects and Benjamin HANCOCK or his wife.
