Joseph Kelley
Death of An Old Pioneer
The Marietta Register announces the death in his eightieth year, of Joseph Kelley, one of the oldest residents of that place. He was a native of Plainfield, Mass., and was brought by his father to Marietta, when four years old, in the spring of 1789. In 1790 the family removed to Bellville, Va., about thirty miles below Marietta. April 7, 1791, early in the morning, Indians attacked and killed James Kelley, the father, who was in a field with a hoe, and defended himself vigorously. He was shot down and scalped. Joseph was with him and was taken prisoner by the Indians. He was then in his seventh year. He was taken off by the Shawnees to their towns in north western Ohio, where  he was adopted by an old warrior named Mishalena, who lived at a village on St. Mary's river. He remained with the Indians until the winter of 1795-6, nearly five years, when he was released. He had lost the English language, and left his Indian parents with regret. He arrived in Marietta in March, 1796, and was restored to his mother. [Source: June 29, 1864, Daily Ohio Statesman- Transcribed by C. Anthony]
