History of the Kelley Brothers
James P. and George B. Kelley were the sons of Phillip Kelley, who owned and operated Kelley Bros. in White Cloud, Kansas, a grocery and general mercantile business. The business had been purchased from Edgar and George Nuzum in 1893. The business was maintained by the Kelley family through three generations, operated by Lowell Kelley at least into the 1970s, who was the grandson of Phillip Kelley and Edgar C. Nuzum.
