I recently acquired naturalization papers for a Thomas Kelty, who I believe to be my great great grandfather. They were executed in Exeter, New Hampshire on 28 February 1859 with an inital application date of 3 March 1859. While these papers don’t positively identify this Thomas Kelty as my great great grandfather, I have concluded through research there were no other Thomas Kelty’s in New Hampshire area between 1850 and 1880. The Kelty name is extremely unusual in any early records as it is.
