Land inherited*after 1745John (173) Kellam inherited land after 1745 at Accomack Co, VA. Whitelaws says no record of the death of Richard Kellam III was noted, but in later years sales of adjacent lands gave the owner of this property as a John Kellam, who died in 1773 leaving a wife Bridget and a son George as heir-at-law. The latter died in 1819 and the next year his land was surveyed for a division among the numerous heirs; his holding totaled 384 acres, including a large part of the land north of the crossroad which had been acquired by him or his fahter. The home and 7 acres went to a Hulton Kellam, who bought up the interests of some of the other heirs. In 1858 a commissioner sold 300 acres of the late Hulton Kellam to Samuel K. Shield and because of his ownership the post office called Shield's later came into being, as well as Shield's Wharf on the creek, which ceased to exist following the demise of the steamboat traffic. After the death of Shield, his large holdings were divided amon his heirs, followed by some inter-family transactions, resulting in Alfred H. Shield becoming the owner of the home place of 115 acres. In 1938 a commissioner sold the property to Francis C. Duer and his wife Billye Atkinson Duer and 2 years later they sold as 122 acres to Lucius J. and Dorothy D. Kellam, thus bringing this land back into the Kellam family once more. Tract A15B is known as Mount Pleasant. A little salt-box-type house burned in 1938. Its age was unknown, but it may have gone back to 1722 when this part of the land was allotted to Richard Kellam III. The present owners have built a substantial moder home nearby.2

Whitelaw noted that Thomas, wife Abegal, did not mention land in tract A15 because it had been entailed, but he named 4 sons. Whitelaw assumed the first mentioned son Stephen was the oldest and inherited the land in A15 and that the next definite owner of record was a Thomas Kellam, probably a son of Stephen. However it appears more likely that son Peter was the oldest and this Thomas Kellam, son of Peter, was the next owner.3,4

Birth*circa 1720Jonathan was born circa 1720 at Accomack Co, VA.2 
Land rec'd as gift*1741He received land as a gift in 1741 at Northampton Co, MD. According to Whitelaw (N113) title to the John Shepheard (died 1709) part, the northern or forked neck part, may have been passed to his granddaughter Abigail Watson, as in 1741, Thomas and Abigail Kellum deeded the land to their sons Jonathan and Stephen, saying that it was where another son Peter was then living. In 1772 a survey showed 237 acres which were divided equally, with Jonathan getting the western part in the fork of the branches, and Stephen the eastern half.2 
Marriage*circa 1755He married (-----) (-----) circa 1755.3 
Will - Father's*26 July 1756Jonathan was named in his father's will on 26 July 1756 at Accomack Co, VA. He was shown as son Jonathan in the will of Thomas Kellam, wife Abegal.4 
Will*6 October 1792Jonathan made a will on 6 October 1792 at Northampton Co, VA. To my son Severn my plantation whereon I now live, he to provide a home for my dau. Adah Kellum as long as she remains unmarried. To son Severn my still, cyder casks and tubs, all my clothes and carpenter's tools. To dau. Adah £100, silk bed quilt, her choice of linen and woollen wheels, and my books. Negro man Edward to be hired out until 1800 and then to be free. Negro woman Susanna to be sold until 1803 and then to be free, likewise Susanna's children to be sold until 21 and then to be free. Son Severn and James Powell extrs. Witt: John (X) White, William W. Cann(?), Charles Kellum. According to Whitelaw (N113) the descent of title of his land is uncertain, but in 1843 a Severn Ross of Baltimore gave a mortgage on a half interest in 130 aces of David Ross land; which was foreclosed the next year and sold to Richard J. Ayres. In 1844 Susan Ross mortgaged the other half, and while a foreclosure was not noted, that interest also passed into the possession of Ayres.5,2 
Death*before 11 December 1792Jonathan died before 11 December 1792 at Northampton Co, VA. It was on this date that his will was probated..3,5
