Info on John B Kelly wwi vet (ga)(fla)(tex) wife:ruby?

+3 votes

     John B. (Brevard, I think) Kelly, my grandfather, was a WWI Sgt.,stationed at Ft. Benning, Ga. & married in Ga. or Tex. around 1918? My father, John W., was born in Feb. 1919 and then John B.'s wife (my grandmother, her maiden name might have been Cameron) died around 1925 (her name unknown). John B. lived in Galveston, Tex. late 20's.  John B. remarried early 30's to Ruby (I think her maiden name was Jackson, from E. Tex.)  John B. and Ruby had Suzie, Nancy & Linda Lou. They lived a long time in Inverness, Fla. John B. died mid 80's & Ruby late 80's. John W. (my father), a WWII vet, an Air force officer and college Instructor, died early 90's.

    I am looking for: John B's first wife's maiden name, and the parentage, as well as brothers' and sisters' names of both of them.

     Thanks much in advance for any assistance.  John R. Kelly
