[NOTE: This info was provided by Cindy Cupp from Anchorage, AK. Both the BRANSTETTER & CUPP lines have been researched by Cindy Cupp. The soldier's monument in the old Methodist Cemetery (also Union Cemetery), now known as Burket Cemetery, has the name "S. BRANSTETTER" included with others on the plaque. It is on the first-tier, right side from Abraham Lincoln's picture and the fourth name down. I thought the above 1990 picture might be interesting. To the right of Lincoln's face are three other cousin's names: JACOB GANOE, ISAAC GANOE & GIDEON GANOE.]

WILLIAM KELLY, b 28 Feb 1755 (Cumberland Co., Penn.), L (Cumberland, Franklin, Huntingdon & Centre Co's, Penn.), Military (Revolution War: Pvt., in Capt McCoy's Co., Col. Bull's Reg't., of Penn'a Line), d 15 Oct 1837 (Halfmoon Twp., Centre Co.); m JANE MOORE, (b 1759, dau of William Moore, rec'd husband's pension 9 Jan 1849 (North Twp., Centre Co., Penn.), d ca 1849) 8 May 1783 (Path Valley, Cumberland Co) by Rev. Samuel Dougal.

"WILLIAM KELLY1 (1755) of Halfmoon Twp., signed a declaration in Centre County on 29 Jan 1833 that he was a voluntary member of the Cumberland County Associators. In July, 1776, he joined a one-hundred-man company of volunteer Riflemen command by Capt. McConnel, Lieut. McClure and Sergeant Leathers. William enlisted at Shippensburg, Cumberland Co., Penn. William made the declaration in order to qualify for a pension passed by an act of Congress on 7 June 1832.

William Kelly stated on his military pension application #25704, the following:

" . . . We marched in the said month of July, 1776, by the way of Lancaster to Philadelphia. Our company was then placed under the command of Colonel Watt. Immediately we were taken by water in a 'Row Galley,' as it was called, to Trenton. We remained there one night. From thence to Princetown, Elizabethtown to Amboy. We remained there 2 or 3 weeks and were then marched to a place called Bergen Point. There we were stationed a month or more. From thence we were marched to Fort Lee and if I recollent right, it was under the command of Col. Bull. Our company was not taken within the garrison, but was stationed a small distance from it. We sheltered ourselves in little huts covered with Brush. We marched from Fort Lee immediately after the taking of Fort Washington in the middle of November, 1776, where my brother, SAMUEL KELLY, was taken prisoner. All the garrison of Fort Lee abandoned it also.

"The company to which I belonged then formed a part of the army on their retreat, under Gen'l WASHINGTON, which marched to Trenton and crossed the Delaware. Our company remained with the army under the command of Col. WATT until the day after Christmans when the whole army was divided into three divisions to attack the Hessians on the opposite side at Trenton. The division to which our company belonged, did not succeed in getting across on acount of the great freezing during the night. The captive Hessians were brought over the next day and Captain McCONNEL's company, to which I belonged, guarded part of them to Philadelphia. We then returned under Col. Watt to Trenton, having remained only one night in Philadelphia. At Trenton I remained until January, when I returned home. I received no written discharge. My officers returned as well as the men.

"In the month of April, 1778, I was drafted in the militia. I then resided in Cumberland County. My Captain's name was ROBERT McCOY. Only one company marched. We joined the Battalion at the Crooked Billet, sixteen miles from Philadelphia, then in possession of the British. One of the Battalions [was] commanded by Col. WATT, the other by Col. SMITH. Our company had arrived on the first day of April and on the morning of the 12 of May, the enemy attacked us. All the troops were dispersed and I was wounded with a sabre on the forehead, which fractured my scull [and] also the . . . arms.

"I was taken to Philadelphia and placed in the Hospital, where my wounds were examined by the Surgeons -- one of whom was Dr. WILFORD. He dressed the wound on my head and took from it a part of the Scull. This wound can be yet seen. When the British evacuated Philadelphia, I with other, was left, and as soon as I sufficiently recovered, I returned home to Cumberland County. (The inference to be drawn from this statement of Kelly's, is, that after being wounded, he fell into the hands of the enemy, the British, by whom he was carried a prisoner to Philadelphia, where his wounds were dressed by the British surgeons as noted. W.F.W.) The wound I received on my head was from a Horse man. The name of one of the prisoners I can recollect is ABRAHAM SMITH, also ROBERT LEATHERS, JAME CALHOON, WM. W. GRIFFOLK, DAVID WILLS, they were in the Hospital with me.

"[The Court then asked William Kelly several Questions.]

*   Where and in what year were you born? "In Cumberland Co'y on the 28, Feb'y, 1755."

*   Have you any record of your age, and if so, where is it? "I have a record. It is now in my possession."

*   Where were you living when called into service? Where have you lived since the Revolutionary war? And were do you   now live? "I lived in Cumberland County. I have lived for forty-six years in Centre County, where I now live."

*   How were you called into service, were you drafted or did you volunteer? "My first service was as a volunteer. My   second service drafted as a militia man."

*   State the names of some of the Regular officers, who were with the troops where you served, such Continental and Militia   Reg'ts as you can recollect and the general circumstances of your service? "I can recollect Gen'l WASHINGTON,   Gen'l PUTNAM, Col. BULL, but our company being a Rifle company, we had not a very good opportunity of becoming   acquainted in any way with the officers of the Regular army. We were never paraded with the main body until we were   retreating through the Jerseys. Then we were generally in front or the rear and whatever orders Col. WATT received,   were obeyed. These are the reasons why I cannot now recollect more of the names of the officers of the Regular army.   Capt. M'COY, under whom I marched when drafted, was killed at the Crooked Billet."

William Kelly was granted his Revolutionary War pension on 19 Dec 1833 and "inscribed on the Roll of Penn'a at the rate of 26 Dollars 66 Cents per annum to commence on the 4th day of March, 1831."
