Surnames: BURNETT OESTREICH JENNINGS KELLY
Submitter: patricia jordan (pcjordan@humboldt1.com)
Date: 28 Jan 1999

I am looking for anyone who might know about the Burnett, Jennings, Oestreich and Kelly families.

My great grandparents, George Burnett and Anna/Emma Jennings, lived in Schell City, Vernon Co., Missouri, sometime during the l880s. I know this to be a fact because I have documents that show that my grandmother, Anna C. Burnett (married name: Kelly), was born in Schell City, on March 21, l875. She had one brother that I am sure of named Charles J. Burnett. I do not know his birth date but I believe that he was Anna's younger brother. They also had at least one other sister, although there might have been more siblings.

I do not know the other sister's name but I do know that Anna and Charles's first cousin was named Florence Oestreich and that Florence's mother and Anna and Charles's mother were sisters. Florence was born in 1880. I have a document that identifies her age as 60 yrs that was dated and signed in March of 1940.

Anna C. Burnett married my grandfather, Joseph "Joe" C. Kelly and eventually traveled to St. Louis, MO, where my father, James Joseph Cornellius Kelly, was born on Aug. 4, l904 (maybe earlier). Anna and Joe were in in vaudeville for a time. Joe was a wonderful dancer. There was a trunk filled with costumes and wigs, etc., that was misplaced after my grandmother died in S.F., CA, in l949.

Joseph "Joe" C. Kelly's parents were Patrick Kelly and Marie Murphy. Joe may have been born in NJ, just after the Civil War.

My family history is quite a mystery and I would appreciate and be very interested in any information provided to me.
