Sue,

Now that rings a bell - the mining occupation. As I remember, some of the later Kellows in America (maybe the Pennsylvania ones) were exactly that - miners and stoneworkers. There may be some discussion of that here on the Forum somewhere even.

Another funny thing, my occupation is as a geologist - many of which are in the mining industry. I use my education more for groundwater issues and environmental subsurface cleanup though - not mining. I often wonder what draws people to certain occupations generations later ?? But then again, I'm supposed to be from the Scot Kellows rather than the Cornish ones! Of course, being a Davis could make me a descendant of a Welsh miner too since they were pretty heavily involved in that.
