Hiram Kelsey was born in Derby, July 16, 1830. At the age of 12 years he came to Danville to live and when of age he went to Arkansas where he married and had three children. He buried both wife and children in Arkansas and returned to North Danville where he has since lived. He married Diantha Nichols 42 years ago. She died April 13, 1902. They had three children, one son dying at the age of three and one half years. Two children survive him, Mrs. William Clement, with whom he has made his home, and Charles, who now lives at the old home. He also leaves one brother, Harvey Kelsey of Springfield, Mass., who arrived here Monday. Mr. Kelsey has long been a member of the Baptist church and was a deacon for several years.
He died Sunday morning, April 14, after an illness of two months of grip and resultant heart trouble.
Mr. Kelsey was a pleasant man to meet, was respected and loved by many neighbors and friends. He will be missed from the home and community. The funeral will be held Tuesday afternoon from his late home.
