Lawrence Kelly married Margaret M Henry 1936 Philadelphia PA  source Index of PA marriages.

cross ref 1940 census and WWII draft card.

John F Kelly is a different matter, there are a lot of John F Kelly's in PA. Do you know anything else about her to narrow it down.

Hi everyone,
Thank you so much for all your help.  This has all helped me so much.
Is there any naturalization records for them or passport records to try and get photos?
