Genette - I tried to find MARY and HORACE in any Philadelphia records, but  "KELLY" (KELLEY) and "BENNETT" are very common surnames.

If you could give us any additional information - such as birth dates, death dates, marriage date, names of parents, etc. - we will probably be able to help you.

Even "approximate dates" would be very helpful, if you don't know the exact dates.

Who is PHILOMENA DEBENEDETTO?  Is she MARY BENNETT's mother?

Sincerely, Melinda

P.S.  I found the marriage of FILOMENA M DISEBASTIAN and MICHAEL DIBENEDETTO in 1942 in Philadephia - is this yours?

The problem is that I don't have much info on them.  My grandmother was Mary Bennett who was known as Philomena DiBenedetto as a child.  I don't know who her parents were or if the entire family changed their last names to Bennett as well.

Mary lived in Philadelphia, PA in the 1930's and was married to Horace Kelly or Kelley, my grandfather.  Horace was born in 1905 and died in Philadelphia in 1961.  They had at least 3 children, Horace born in 1932 died in 1937, Jeanette born in 1935 or 1936 and she died in 1937 as well, and my father Eugene born in 1931 in Philadelphia.

I have not been able to find any documentation on the family except burial place.  I belive after the other two children died, my father may have been taken away, and therefor I could not locate them in the 1940 census....I'm stuck!

I would like to find out who Horace's parents were.  I have been able to trace the rest of my family, but I can't identify which Horace Kelly or Kelley belongs to us.

Thanks for any help you can give.
