Kellow Family Tree

Greetings from Ontario Canada

Cornwall England... is exactly where we originated.

My Grandfather, Gordon Llewellyn was the godson to the Duke of Cornwall.

Surfs in the service to the British Crown.

My great grandfather's,father was Moses. Mose's wife was named Mary.

My understanding of the whole migration to the US is that the "Kellows" came from Cornwall England, why they left...I don't know.There is a large population of Kellows in the Cornwall, England area.
They arrived in the US and apparently settled in the PA area.

A rift grew amongst the family and a portion seperated and headed north to Canada, and were admitted as United Empire Loyalists.

I would be interested to hear from all the Kellows with respect to this. I find it interesting that the family split leaving the majority in PA. We have a family bible and many death records to confirm the information, at least the Canadian connection.
