I checked through my files a bit and I don't really seem to have any further info on the A.J. Kellow I listed. I don't know for sure his name or his exact birthplace other than it's in TN. I have a big gap prior to that 1850 census appearance of the Kellow brothers. My ancestor Thomas was born 1808 in NC, and I think he is the son of Thomas Kellow of the 1800 and 1810 NC censuses. But after 1810, the next official record is 1850 in Williamson County, TN. We can tell by the children's birthdates and places that the brothers were in TN by the late 1830's, so there could have been a time when they were in Trousdale County before Williamson. I have never looked there so maybe I should. If you can prove that A.J. is yours, you'll find that the Neely part of your line is fairly easy to trace too. I've corresponded with a Neely whose ancestor was an in-law to these Kellows, but they didn't know much about the Kellows.

The only other thing I have of interest is a record of a Henry Kellow who married Eliza Snapp in Washington County, Tennessee in 1830. There are a few of their descendants on the net - Ferne Kellow is one who has left messages on the Killough Forum - you might check them for your guy too. We've never seen any evidence that the Williamson Co. Kellows connect with these Washington Co. ones though but of course it's possible.

Keep in touch,
