gr.gr.grandfather Lawrence Kelley, who disappeared in the company of 2 men
one day after leaving the field he was plowing. He left behind a wife and 4 children.
After spending many hours on researching this mystery, I've found long lost
cousins, learned a lot about the lives of Lawrence's children, and finally found
out what happened after the day he walked away. Family rumors had Lawrence last being seen
crossing the Cadron creek in Faulkner Co, Arkansas. Speculations about murder, robbery, and
accidental death swirled through the family. Under these gruesome thoughts was the possibility
that Lawrence simply abandoned his family. It's hard to say which truth would be most
disturbing. In any case, discovering what really happened was not easy. Read the story in my
Stories section under the People tab to see how I found the partial truth of Lawrence's last
