1). bobspu.ged John Kelly enlisted 2 Feb 1777 as a private in Capt. Charles Porterfield s Company, Col. Febiger s 11th Virginia Regiment. He was wounded at the Battle of Brandywine and carried a bullet in his neck until he died. He was discharged 2 Feb 1780 and applied for a pension on 6 Jun 1818 at the age of 62. The first history of Preston County done in the 1880 s states that John Kelly lived in the county, then moved on to Muskingum Co., OH. That book says that William Benson and 2 sons were buried in a small graveyard on the farm cleared out by John Kelly, which is now owned by William M. Smith, as also was James Kelly, brother of John, a soldier in the War of 1812. John Kelly, the Revolutionary War soldier mentioned above, emigrated to Muskingum Co., OH, about 1811 and lived to be 103 years old.
