Well I will write about my great grandfather Robert Forsyth Kelly, he was born in Illinois in 1855, went to California with his parents during the Civil War and back to Illinois after the war was over. In 1889 he married Vada Belle Hert born 1871 and she had two sons, one died at age 5 and the other was my grandfather Charles Kelly. Vada Belle died in 1912 and so Robert married Lillie McDaniel Virts born 1861. Family tradition says he married an 18 year old again, but she was only 6 years younger than Robert. Lillie died in 1923 and so Robert married Catherine Elizabeth Struck and she died in 1927. Robert lived till 1934 and had outlived all three wives.
