11 Newspaper Article, Newspaper Article, Marietta Register. Death of Joseph Kelley [sic]
Joseph Kelley, one of our eldest and most highly respected citizens, died on Saturday night 18 Jun 1864 in the 80th year of his age.
Mr Kelley was born in Plainfield MA and when four years of age came with his father to 'the West' remaining at Pittsburgh through the winter of 1788-89. In the spring of 1789 James Kelly, the father, removed to Marietta and in Dec 1789, Mrs Kelley gave birth to the first male child born in the colony- St Clair Kelly- a brother of the subject of this notice, and who died about forty years ago.
In 1790 the family removed to Belville VA about thirty miles below Marietta. April 7, 1791, early in the morning, Indians attacked and killed James Kelly, the father, who was in a field with a hoe, and defended himself vigorously. He was shot down and scalped. Joseph was with him, and was taken prisoner by the Indians. He was then in his 7th year. He was taken off by the Shawnees to their towns in northwestern Ohio, where he was adopted by an old warrior named Mishalena, who lived at a village on St Mary's River. He remained with the Indians until the winter of 1895-96, nearly five years, when he was released. He had lost the English language, and left his Indian parents with regret. He arrived in Marietta in March 1796 and was restored to his mother.
Mr Kelly had lived in Marietta during this long period until last week- universally respected. He was always a temperate and very moral man, industrious and energetic. His early education was deficient and he had no ambition for office but he lived a useful citizen. He became a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church, about thirty seven years since and lived in that faith until death.
