My great grandmothers name was Margaret Kelly b 1879 about in ireland. Her parents were John Kelley and Ellen Rock. She immigrated to usa at age 18. She married Frank Horton and lived in Massachucetts. I found a marraige for a john kelley and ellen roach in county Mayo. No further info available. Would really love to know what county we are from. I also have a picture of Margarets neices and nephews as children in Ireland. They were Roman catholic. thank you!

There is a user on Ancestry with a picture of Margaret and Frank but they do not have any information in their tree on Margaret's parents.

Where are you sourcing her parents names from? Given Margaret emigrated before the census data is available (and may well have passed away themselves by that time), anything else you have to go on would be very helpful.

There is another user with a Kelley family tree and I have asked them if they have any information as it is a private tree.
I am in touch with the Horton side. Margaret when in USA the name was Kelly, with no e. I believe my info on her parents was from their marraige certificate. Also stating she was from Northern Ireland. I have looked and looked. I will keep on it! Thank you for helping!
Do you have Margaret's death certificate? To my knowledge they list details on the parents also. Without more info to go on I think you're stuck because Kell(e)y is such a common name.
