Robert Kellow (b 1836) Will
Posted by: Louise Kellow (ID *****2494) Date: December 31, 2008 at 09:33:33
  of 190

I recently received a copy of Robert's Will and thought the contents may be of interest to others.

I have come to the conclusion that the half nieces and nephews in the Will are the grandchildren of Moses Kellow (b abt 1797, d abt 1828) and Mary Hoskins. This would mean that Robert (b abt 1805) was Mary's second husband.

I have not been able to determine who the parents or grandparents of Robert Stephen Kellow (mentioned in bequest #7 were.

If anyone would like a copy of the Will please email me.

Here are the bequests that may be of interest to others:

#2 "I give and bequeath to my half nephew William Kellow Sr., of Pen Argyl, Pennsylvania, the sum of xxx.
#3 "... to my half nephew James L. Kellow of Pen Argyl,.."
#4 "... to my half niece Mrs. Elizabeth Sleep of Cornwall, England, ..."
#5 "... to my half niece Mrs. Mary Coumbs of Cornwall, ..."
#6 "... to my half niece Mrs. Louise Mules of Cornwall..."
#7 " To the children of one nephew, namely these children, Robert Stephen Kellow, Junior, and also to the sister of Robert Stephen Kellow, Junior, ..."
#8 "... to my half nephew James Jeffrey of Pen Argyl,..."
#9 "... to my half nephew Henry Jeffrey of Pen Argyl,..." #10 "... to my half niece Mrs. Ann Arthur of New Zealand or Australia or wherever she may be, ..."
#11 "... to the children, of my half-niece Mrs. Jane Taylor late of Canada, Province of Ontario, I give and bequeath the sum of xxx, each child to share and share alike."
#12 "... to John Carter Kellow, Sr. of Pen Argyl, the sum of xxx" (comment added by LK - He was Robert's step son)
#13 "... to John Carter Kellow, Jr. of Pen Argyl,..."
#14 "... to Mary Elizabeth Kellow, daughter of John Kellow Sr. the sum of xxx.
#15 "... to Mrs. Ellen German of Pen Argyl,..."
#16 "... to Moses Rankin Hemingway of Canada, and also to Robert Kellow Hemingway of Canada, ..."
#17 "... to Mary E Vicory of Cornwall, ..."
#18 "... to my half-niece Mrs. Edith Camps of Cornwall,.."
#19 "... to my half-niece Mrs. Ellen Honey of Bangor, Pennsylvania, ..."
#20 "... to my half-nephew Nehemiah Lobb of Cornwall,..."
#21 "... to Sophia Bonney, daughter of Emily Lobb deceased, now living at Bangor, ..."
#22 "... to Mrs. Selina Rowe, ..."
#29 " All the rest, residue and remainder of my estate ... to my three own nephews, sons of my own brother James Kellow, deceased, their respective names are Alfred William Kellow, Robert Thomas Mansell Kellow and Sydney James Mansell Kellow ..." (Comment added by LK - Alfred William Kellow was my husband's grandfather).

Happy New Year

Louise
