The Kelly family were farmers in Harmons, Anne Arundel County, Maryland, where they dealt predominantly with crops rather than livestock. Rufus Kelly (fl. 1884-1923) and Egbert Kelly (fl. 1890-1923) took over the farm from their father, Hezron Kelly (fl. 1814-1883). The Hawkins family intermarried with the Kelly family, and lived in Baltimore and Harmons, Md.
