    Book of Mary Lafferty Wilson: Deposition on 9 Sep 1850 by John Lindsey Lafferty.
    My first acquaintance with Charles Kelly commenced in the year 1808 in the neighborhood of Nashville, TN. He had commanded to a keelboat for my father. The boat was then from St. Charles. I understood from Kelly that he had got on the boat at or near the mouth of the Comberland River on her trip before St. Charles, went there and was returning on her to above Nashville, where I first saw him in the edge of Sumner Co. Charles Kelly returned on the keelboat with my father to St. Charles. And I went there from TN in the fall of 1809 and found Charles Kelly there in my father's employ. The same fall, Charles Kelly left St. Charles in charge of a hunting party and went to my father's residence in Sumner Co., TN. In the summer of 1810, Charles Kelly married my oldest sister (Elizabeth Lafferty). He and his wife came out to AR and settled near the Post of AR where his wife died within a moht from the time they married, and without issue." (From Creswell, Cresswell, Criswell--Moving West" by Harold and Mary Byrd Criswell.)
