Kelley, Chas H

Kelley, Chas. H., a Methodist Episcopal minister, was born in Logan Co., Ky., 1821; emigrated to Indiana in 1829; was converted in 1836; entered the Indiana Asbury University in 1845, but his health soon failed, and he left; entered the Indiana Conference in 1846; was transferred to the Missouri Conference in 1849, and appointed to St. Joseph station; in 1850 was stationed at St. Louis; in 1851 at Independence; and in 1852 at Lagrange Mission. While on this work he was arrested, on Feb. 13, 1853, by a band of ruffians, on a pretended suspicion of his identity with Chas. F. Kelley, who had recently escaped from the state-prison at Fort Madison. Thither he was forced on a stormy winter night, and though the state officers instantly set him at liberty, the outrages and exposure of the eighteen hours he was in the hands of the mob threw his feeble system into sickness, .and he died shortly after, Sept. 17,1853. He was a good man, an able and faithful preacher, and much lamented by his brethren.-Minutes of Conf. 5:481.' (G. L. T.)
