    I. R. Dec. 15, 1892 - Death of Mrs. W. D. Kelly. This well known and esteemed lady died at her home in Ironton, last Sunday eveing, after a sickenss of several weeks’ duration. Her case has been critical for ten days. The deceased was born in this county [Lawrence] in 1822, and was married to the late W. D. Kelly, on the home farm, below Hanging Rock, in 1838. In the early days of her married life, she and her husband lived in the old brick house (then quite a palace) in the rear of the Goldcamp Mill. They lived there when Ironton was started, and so Mrs. Kelly’s life as a woman was largely identified with the growth and progress of Ironton. She was the mother of six children, five sons and one daughter. Only two children have survived her, Hon. Lindsey Kelly and Mr. I. A. Kelly.
    The deceased was a woman of quiet and domestic tastes, and during thelatter years of her life stayed quite closely to her home. Her maiden name was Sarah Austin, andher parents were among the early pioneers of this region.
    The funeral services took place at the residence, Tuesday afternoon. Though the weather was dismal and rainy, there was a good attendance. Revs. E. E. Moran and J. M. Kelly officiated. The latter, her school mate and relative, spoke of the kindly memories the sad occasion evoked, and made a deeply affecting address. Miss Ricker, Mrs. Reading, Dr. and Mrs. Davis sang, “I would not Live Alway,” “Asleep in Jesus” and “Some Sweet Day,” and their singing was most sweet and impressive. She was interred in the Kelly cemetery by the side of her husband, who was buried there in October of last year.

    Sarah married William Dollarhide Kelly 18 or 26 Sep 1838, Below Hanging Rock, Ohio. William (son of Joseph Kelly and Kitty Dollarhide) was born 13 Jan. 1815, Lawrence Co., OH; died Oct. 1891. [Group Sheet]
