It was good to hear from you.
The Kelly link in my tree is somewhat stange. My great grandfather seems to have left his wife (My great Grandmother) and set up a new family about 1900. His name was Robert Forbes Kelhear. It seems that he set up with a Sarah Hines and there is at least one child possibly 2 a girl and a boy.
Whilst the name of these children is registered as Kelhear there has been a registered change of name to Kelly for Frederick.
Robert seems to have left this family as well as at his death in 1936 there is no mention of either family and the informant at his death was his brother who I would have though would have known about his brothers family/ies.
I am trying to find links to the Kelly name change as they may have some further information about Robert Kelhear.
Its possible that if Robert shot through that Sarah started another relationship. Given that Cootamundra is a fairly small place i thought it might be possible to track the family there. I've not really made any attempt to do so other than the note you have responded to.
I've got the birth certificate of Frederick Lachlan Kelhear (Kelly)
