Andrew Smalley House on Hall's Creek Road near Arago, Coos County, Oregon. 

My Paternal Grandmother, Etta Mae Smalley was born in Arago, Coos County, Oregon to parents Andrew Smalley and Emma Tillman the last of 14 children.  She was first married to James Albert Claude Freeman in 1923 and had 8 children two of them twin boys who died in infancy.  That marriage ended in divorce in the 1940's and remarried in 1953 to Arthur Ellison.  She is buried at Hillcrest Memorial Park in Medford, Jackson County, Oregon.

Jane Kelly was born by most accounts in County Antrim, Ireland.  The day was 12 October 1749. Her parents were Matthew Kelly and Jane Brown. The Kelly Family and Widow Hutchison with her children made a perilous journey together by ship and secured drinking water by hanging out their blankets.  A grandson, Joseph Hutchison wrote an account of the Family history which claims that the Families arrived in 1754, but not very clear on whether that is true or if a ship's manifest has been found.  I do believe that the two families traveled together.  They first landed and settled in York County, Pennsylvania where in 1776 Jane Kelly and James Hutchison were married.  They became the parents of 10 children with 8 surviving to adulthood.  From York County, they removed to Westmoreland County where in 1810, Matthew Kelly died.  Not is much known of the Kelly Family or the other Hutchison Family members.  James served in the Revolutionary War in a Militia Unit.  From about the very early 1800's they moved to Ohio, to Wayne County.  James passed away in 1817 and Jane lived with family members until the day she died 15 April, 1845.  Their descendants are many and there are several of them researching.

I find this obituary a real treasure and found this last year.  It tells about her countenance and this is something you don't find too often.  I hope someday to be able to extensively research this family and learn more about their life in Pennsylvania.
