I can't find any further information on Michael's parents. Michael was born in County Down Ireland (1863) and died in Burnley England in 1913.

When & where did the marriage take place? if Ireland, England or Wales marriage certificate should list father's name & occupation (unless illegitimate) and if in Scotland names of both parents should appear on marriage certificate.
Away sorting out DNA matches... I may be gone for some time many years!

Yes I know his Father's name is also Michael and was an Iron Moulder and they were married in Burnley but I can't find any records of Michael Kelly the father.

Have you followed the Rafferty connection to find out more about Michael Kelly's family?

http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1901/Antrim/Falls_Ward/Benares_Street/979221/
https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/birth_returns/births_1895/02219/1837538.pdf

Added- 1901 census says Michael Kelly & sister Margaret Rafferty both born County Antrim.
1911 census also says Michael Kelly born County Antrim.

Death Mar qtr 1911 
KELLY    Michael    age 59   
Burnley reg dist    8e   136    

Death Sep qtr 1912 
Kelly    Michael    age 60

Have you looked on the Irish 1901 for Michael Kelly senior?  He may have remained in Ireland.
See reply above - Michael jnr was not b County Down - where did you get that info from?

Michael jnr married 1894 but have you looked for him on earlier English censuses in case he is with family

EDIT - just realised Rosie had already asked question re earlier censuses

1901 census - Margaret Rafferty (sister of Michael + her 2 children) and a widow were living with Michael jr and his family in Benares St. Belfast. Her 2 children had been born in England. The family appears to have been backwards + forwards to Burnley. Michael jr was married in Burnley in 1894.

There are baptisms here https://www.lan-opc.org.uk/ for children to John Rafferty and Margaret Kelly

Twins
Reuben John and Thomas 1884 - Godparents Michael,Kelly and Ann Rafferty
It looks as though they were baptised at home - Reuben being in danger of death, I think but my Latin was learned a long time ago.

Mary Ann Rafferty baptised 1886 - Godparents Thomas and Ann Kelly
