I am afraid that I do not have anything further on Richard H. Pelkey. Births in N.H. after 1901 are closed to the public; you have to contact the N.H. Bureau of Vital Records for futher information on any possible children of this Mr. Pelkey. I do not have any death certificate for Richard H. Pelkey in N.H. This might mean that he died elsewhere (Vt. or Mass., for instance) or that he died in N.H., but after 1948. In N.H., birth records pre-1901 are open; marriage, divorce, and death records pre-1948 are open. For any birth post-1901 or any other certificate post-1948, you have to contact the Bureau. You also have to pay a twelve-dollar fee.
Have you contacted the Keene public library? I don't know how that particular city operated, but I know that *some* cities in our state, in their annual reports, included vital records. If Keene included vitals in their reports, and if these reports exist, you can look through them, year by year, to see if Richard H. Pelkey had any children. I would look in births & deaths, because if the child was stillborn, it would show up in the deaths and not necessarly the births.
Now, unless I am mistaken, on the divorce records at the Bureau, when the couple divorces, the certificate mentions if any minor children are affected by the divorce. It's kind of a long shot, given that I don't have much experiences with N.H. divorce certificates, but you might write to or visit the Bureau to see if this is the case. (Ask them before requesting a certificate.)
Hope this helps.
