John C. Kelley

Rutland Daily Herald, July 8, 1909:

John C. Kelley, for 40 years a resident of this city, died at 4:40 o'clock yesterday afternoon at his home, No. 198 Columbian avenue, after a long illness. Mr. Kelley received severe injuries to his head while at work over a year ago at the Columbian Marble Quarrying Co.'s mills for the Vermont Marble company, and never fully recovered from his injuries. He had not been able to work since last December owing to a heart trouble which resulted in his death.

Mr. Kelley was born January 6, 1845 in Schuyler Falls, N.Y., and was a son of William and Elizabeth Kelley. He lived in Schuyler Falls until the Civil War, and at the outbreak of the war enlisted in company I, 16th New York infantry, serving from September 16, 1861 to October 5, 1863. Mr. Kelley came to this city about 40 years ago, and except for a short time had been a marble worker. He was married December 24, 1873 in West Rutland to Miss Adela L. Reed, who survives him. He also leaves two brothers, Hiram Kelley of this city, and Orson Kelley of Schuyler Falls, N.Y., and three children, Mrs. Sargent of West Rutland, Bert M. and William D. Kelley of this city.

He was for many years a member of the Methodist church of this city. The funeral arrangements have not been made as yet.
