Descendants of Rev. Albert Charles James KELLOW - Sep 30, 2005

First Generation

1. Rev. Albert Charles James KELLOW was born on 28 Nov 1886 in Linkinhorne, Cornwall, United Kingdom. He emigrated in 1910 from Cornwall in the United Kingdom to Ellis Island, New York.

There is in the Ellis Island Passenger Records, an Albert Kellow, British subject, who arrived in NY on Feb. 17, 1911. He was 24 years old, unmarried, and rode aboard the St. Louis from Southampton, Southamptonshire, England, UK. He apparently travelled alone; there are no other Kellows on board this ship at this arrival. He was from Devonport, and named his next of kin as mother, E. Kellow of 84 Alexandedr Rd., Ford, Devonport. His destination was Primrose, Nebraska, and his occupation was minister.

The St. Louis was built in 1895 by William Cramp & Sons, shipbuilders in Philadelphia, PA. It was 554 feel long, and 63 feet wide, and powered by twin screw, steam engines. Maximum service speed was 19 knots, and carried 320 first class passenters, 220 second class, and 800 third class.

It was built for the America Line and placed in the Southhampton-New York service. The St. Louis was used by the US Navy as a auxiliary cruiser in the Spanish-American war of 1898, and again in 1917 and renamed the USS Louisville. It returned to the the America Line in 1920 and re-named St. Louis. It was damaged by fire while being refitted and was idle from 1920-1924, and finally scrapped at Genoa, IT in 1924.

Obituary, The Ida County Pioneer Record, Ida County, IA, Nov. 14, 1957, Page 3

Albert Charles James Kellow, oldest child of Captain John and Elizabeth Kellow, was born in the parish of St. Ive, Cornwall, England, on November 28, 1886.

He emigrated to the United States in 1911 to assume the pastorate of a church in Primrose, Nebraska. Here he was united in marriage on November 8, 1911 to Lena Trenouth, also of Plymouth, England. Four of their five children survive their father; they are Kathrun of Fremont, Nebraska; Karyl, Mrs. John L. Nickel, of Fremont, Nebraska; Elizabeth, Mrs. Charles F. Michels, of West Union, West Virginia; and Dr. Keith V. Kellow of Battle Creek, Iowa. One son, Captain Kenneth Kellow, Army Air Force was killed in action in Rumania on July 28, 1944. Two sisters and two brothers in England, and seven grandchildren also survive.

He was a member of the Presbytery of Sioux City, the Masons, Knights Templar; Abu Bekr Shrine; Order of Eastern Star; and had served as president of the local Lions club.

Following his ordidnation by the Omaha Presbytery, Rev. Kellow served the churches at Winnebago and South Sioux City, Nebraska before assuming the pastorate of the church at Battle Creek, Iowa, where his first public announcement through the local paper was born out by his life here. It read, "I am amont you as one that serveth, and to preach Christ crucified." Here he served a loyal and appreciative people for sixteen years, culminating in the erection of a fine new house of worship within the past year. This was a rewarding and happy experience and he really gave himself happily to the task of unifying the congretation as only his Christian spirit could.

He was looking forward to another year of service in the church he so dealy loved, and was making plans for the first Easter celebration but at 5:30 p.m. on November 6 he suddenly passed away after suffering a severe heart attack, as he was preparing to serve a bereaved family on the day following.

So passed on whose life was wholly dedicated to Christ and His Church. A service to his fellow men as selflass as he could make it. We can truly say:

"Servant of God - well done! Rest from thy loved employ. The task is o'er - the battle's won, Enter thy Master's joy."

According to information received in e-mail from "Keith" at on Dec. 15, 2003, Albert's parents were John James Kellow, and Elizabeth Langsford. Albert's siblings were Norman and Carrie.
