8. John O'Kelley was born about 1769 in Mecklenburg Co, Virginia, British America.
John does not appear in the traditional family pedigrees but there are reasons to believe he was a real person and was a son of Elizabeth Dean. His closeness to Charles is one indicator, marring of the wives of Charles and Francis is another and a John O'Kelley appears on the Rev James O'Kelly family pedigree. Thomas's son Francis named his first born son John P giving yet another reason to believe the name John appeared in a close ancestor. So while I can not prove John was a son of Elizabeth Dean I believe there are more reason to think he was than to think he wasn't.
John Kelley and Frances Crowder were married on 6 December 1804 in Mecklenburg Co, Virginia, United States. Frances Crowder, daughter of George Crowder and Mary Branch, was born about 1774 in Mecklenburg Co, Virginia, British America.
