      Note: Wiley was b mar 25 1844 d Feb 12 1931 in Karnes Co and seems to be the only Kelly son to escape some mysterious death. Following the murder of his bros Wm and Henry he and his wife Rachel Shipworth left Lavaca Co. They had 8 children, most of them named for his notorious family: James Ira, Cora Bell [Wiley's sis' name], Eugenia, Pat Ballard, Sallie Delila, Clifton, Wiley Tho jr & Frank O.

      Wiley was in Capt FJ Malone's Co w/his bro Frank and later enlisted in Co D 27th Tx Cavalry-Whitfield's Legion, later paroled at Columbus 1865 and did not get wounded but lost his father's shot gun and his horse. There is slight indication he might have witnessed the killing of his younger bro Wm and Henry in 1870 as he was marr by 1868. Following his mother's death in 1882 his family moved to Runge Karnes Co and lived peacefully.
