KELLY, Robert Morrison, journalist, born in Paris, Kentucky, 22 September, 1836. He was educated in his native town, and after teaching for several years qualified for the practice of law, and opened an office at Cynthiana in 1860. He aided in recruiting volunteers for the National army at Camp Dick Robinson, was made captain, and successively promoted major, lieutenant-colonel, and colonel of the 4th Kentucky infantry, and commanded this regiment until its discharge, 1 September, 1865, nearly all of the time in active duty in the field. In 1866 he was appointed collector of internal revenue for the 7th district, but in 1869 he resigned to take editorial charge of the " Louisville Daily Commercial," at the head of which he continued until 1886. In 1873 he was appointed pension-agent at Louisville, which office he held until he was removed by President Cleveland.
