Hey he was my great uncle
Ha, I'm named John Kelley Hinsdale after John M. Kelley, Circus World founder ... I was born in 1963 not long after John M. passed away and named after him.

I have been corresponding with many of your siblings and have done my father's DNA that found another third cousin, great grandson of CW Kelley, JMK's father. I would love to connect with you to talk more about our family connections. Please respond to my private emails when you have the time to further explore our connected heritage!
