In the Norwalk city directories, Mary Kelley first shows up as widow of Patrick in the 1897 directory, so seems likely that Patrick died shortly before that.  I didn't see a likely match in the Connecticut death index, which starts in 1897.  https://www.ctatatelibrarydata.org/death-records/

Do you have anything that shows Mary's maiden name?  It sounds like the record from Australia is just a coincidence.

1927 Norwalk city directory - Kelley, Mary A., widow of Patrick, died Mar. 2, 1926 age 62.

The CT death index indicated that she died in Norwalk.

It looks like there may be an obituary or death notice for her on page 19 of this newspaper towards the bottom - https://news.google.com/newspapers?nid=KKiikWAUrRgC&dat=19260305&printsec=frontpage&hl=en  However, either the condition of the paper or the scanning is so bad that it's not legible.  Sometimes local libraries will do look ups, so that may be an option if the paper is legible in person.

A little confused. I wonder if there are two Mary and Patrick Kelley in Connecticut at this time.
The one who died 1926 was 62 years old so born 1865.

Mary Kelley born 1847 New York (widow of Patrick) appears on the 1930 census aged 83 years with her daughter Anna and son-in-law Albert Reed Sterling. Maybe I'm confused  ???

1930 census Greenwich, Fairfield, Connecticut,

Albert Sterling   60   Connecticut
Anna Sterling   58   New York
Douglas Sterling23   New York
Reed Sterling   15   Connecticut
Rennie Lewis   17   Connecticut. Nephew.
Mary Kelly   Mother-in-law 83 years New York

Wow, thanks for putting in so much effort.
1st- The 1930 census (how did I miss that) is he living with her son in law and daughter. When I didn't see her in the 1920 census I assumed she had passed between 1910 and 1920.

Yes I do believe there are multiple Patrick and Mary Kelley's. Thats really making it frustrating and not knowing her maiden name does not help at all.

I could not figure out the newspaper but the 1930 census makes it clear she died after 1930.

added not-
From your first posts I learned abut the city directories which I never knew existed. I turned my mother on to them and showed her how to search for all the people she knew as a little girl. She loves it. (Thanks for that)

Hi Sandra,
I also have developed a flow chart of the family with every thing I know to date. But I don't know how to post it. If your interested ( I don't want to impose) but I could send it to you.

There is like a gazillion Patrick Kelley's and the same for Mary. But if I can find any document with a maiden name it would go a long way towards isolating them out of the pack.

Once again, thanks so much for all your effort! :)
