Hi Barb, Thank you for the information on John Louis Kellis. I was told in 1998 by someone that there was an obituary for him in Hillsboro newspaper but I have't located it yet. I would like a copy of his brother, Benjamin Franklin Kellis's obit also. My great great grandmother was Elizabeth Jane Kellis. She first married Louis Steege in Hamilton Co. Ohio and then Abraham Lucas in Highland Co. Ohio. They had my great grandmother, Sarah Emily Lucas. Sarh never used that name but went by Emma. Emma was raied by her Aunt Sarah Ellen Kellis and her husband Frederick Shaffer. We traced Elizabeth until 1886 but never found a death record for her. Her mother was Lydia Kellis. Elizabeth was sister of John Louis Kellis. I lived with my grandmother and Emma until Emma's death in 1953 at the age of 88. She told me many stories about her childhood. Thank you for answering my query. Donna
