  • Notes 
    • Thomas Kelly had a stroke while working the fields on their homestead. They took him into Las Animas to stay with his son Jim. He had several more strokes there and died a few days later. Following is an article and the obituary:

      Kiowa County Press Aug. 24, 1945
      STROKE PROVES FATAL TO THOMAS KELLY
      Friends and neighbors of Thomas Kelly were saddened last Saturday to learn of his death at the home of his son, James, in Las Animas. He had suffered a stroke on July 23rd and another on Aug. 18th caused his death. Mr Kelly was visiting his son for a few days and expected to leave soon with his wife for a visit in California in hopes of improving their health.
      The Kelly family had resided in Kiowa County since 1910, having homesteaded northeast of Eads at that time. Here they raised a family of eleven children and established a wide acquaintance of friends who regret his passing. Because of poor health, Mr. and Mrs. Kelly sold their home and personal property at public auction Wednesday of last week.
      Funeral services were held in the Methodist Church at Eads, Thursday, August 23rd with Rev. A.W. Lenz and Rev. H.H. Hoffmann, in charge of the devotions. Songs were "Beautiful Isle", "Under His Wing", and "Abide With Me". Burial was made in Eads cemetery
