John T Kelley and his grandsons

John T Kelley and his grandsons

This is a picture of John T. Kelley and his grandsons, Richard on the left and John on the right. John T. Kelley lived to be 93 years old. The single family home behind them was occupied by the Tom Johnson family. Tom and John were both power plant operators. The houses in Helvetia, like other mining towns in Pennsylvania, were owned by the mine company and rented to the workers.

The Kelley family lived in Helvetia, PA.  I would like to hear from anybody who lived in Helvetia.
