Nice to know someone agrees with me! The problem is, I suppose, that it would be so nice to think that all the Kellows stem from one, hugely-mysterious, distant KELLOW in the distant past, but life ain't always like that, and genealogy rarely so!

I'm sure wiser people than I could tell you exactly why the Cornish Kellows began migrating to America; the only thing I know for sure is that many of them were involved in mining in various ways, and knowing the general scale of poverty in England at that time, I would imagine that they had arrived at the realisation that America would hold far greater promise for the average working man
