JAMES W. KELLY
The subject of this sketch has been a resident of this county twenty-two years.
A practical farmer, a practical business man, and soundness and substantiality
are the leading characteristics of his organization. He was born in the state of
Delaware, January 8, 1819, and is consequently now in his fifty-eight year,
though his appearance would indicate ten years less to the casual observer. His
avocation is that of a farmer, and a life-long experience has made it, with him,
a financial success. He removed with his parents to Ohio in 1827, and settled in
Miama county. During his residence there he married to Miss C. Benham, in 1843,
and for thirty-three years have they traveled the journey of life together, with
a larger amount of health and comfort than usually falls to the lot of humanity.
