1891 Memorial Card of Lorana E. Gilpatrick, likely Danforth, Maine

Memorial card on the occasion of the death of Lorana E. Gilpatrick, who died 25 April 1891 at the age of 39 years and 7 months.

From online research, hopefully correct: [corrections welcome]

Lorana E. Kelly was born September 1852 at Selden or Leavitt Plantation or Weston, Maine, in Aroostook County near the border with Washington County, the daughter of Jeremiah and Sarah Parker (Ellis) Kelly, who were born in Massachusetts and Brighton, Maine, respectively.

I believe Lorana's paternal grandparents were Sylvanus and Temperance Killey; her maternal grandparents were Samuel and Sarah (Withey) Ellis.

In 1869 at Weston, Maine, Lorana married Albert H. Gilpatrick, son of William and Emmeline (Cleaves) Gilpatrick.  Albert was born about 1848 at Weston, Maine.   

Albert and Lorana made their home at Danforth, Maine, where they had several children before Lorana died in childbirth after delivering twins.

If you have corrections to the information above or insights into the Kelly and Gilpatrick families of Aroostook County and Washington County, please leave a comment or contact me directly.
