Oscar N Kellogg, a gentleman who has met with more than ordinary success in life, a good farmer and respected citizen of Warren County, residing on section 11, Cold Brook Township, was born in Steuben Co., NY., January 04, 1846. Josiah Kellogg, father of the gentleman whose name heads this biographical notice, followed the trade of a harness maker until 1851, when he came West, and located in Kelly Township. He continued to reside there, following the vocation of a farmer, until the call was made by the President Lincoln for soldiers to defend the cause of the union, when he enlisted, September 02, 1862, as First Corporal in the 102nd Ill Vol. Inf., Co. B, under Capt Elisha C. Atchison. The regiment in which his company belonged was assigned to the Army of the Cumberland, and Mr. Kellogg participated in all the battles in which it was engaged until March 13, 1863, when he was promoted to Third Sergeant. He held that rank until the battle of Resaca, when he received a shot from the enemy that caused his death.
Oscar N. Kellogg, whose life history we write, was but six years of age when his parents came to this county and located in Kelly Township. After the death of his father, he resided with his mother on the old homestead, where he was engaged in its cultivation and improvement. October 31, 1871 he was united in marriage with Miss Margaret, the accomplished daughter of Alex and Martha (Richey) (really spelled Richey) Armstrong, natives of the North of Ireland and of Scotch-Irish descent. her parents were married in their native country and resided in Fermanagh County, where eight children were born to them. Mrs. Kellogg, wife of the subject of this notice, was next to the youngest in order of bathe of her parents' family and was born in Fermanagh County, Ireland, July 02, 1849. Her parents emigrated to the United States and settled in Kelly Township, this county, where her father died, in May 1876, aged 70 years. Her mother survives and is residing with her oldest son, James, Kelly Township, aged 73 years.
After the Marriage of Mr. and Mrs. Kellogg, they located on the old homestead belonging to the father of Mrs. K., on section 28, Kelly Township. Mr. Kellogg subsequently sold his possessions in Kelly Township, and in February, 1884, purchased 120 acres of good farm land in Cold Brook Township, the same being the farm on which they at present reside. It is under an advanced state of cultivation and presents an appearance indicative of the push and energy of its proprietor. Mr. and Mrs. Kellogg are both members of the Methodist Episcopal Church, of which denomination Mr. K. is Steward and also Sunday-school Superintendent. In Politics he always casts his vote with the Republican party. He has held the office of Road Commissioner for six years and School Trustee for the same length of time. Of the union of Mr. and Mrs. Kellogg, two children have been born---Bertha, December 17, 1873, and Estella, January 24, 1877,

 Estella married Charles Wright.  They spent most of their time in Janesville, Wis.  It is reported in the 1972 Terpening/Armstrrong Hisrory Records by Ailene Terpening that Estella & Charles Wright are buried in the Hope Cemetery, Kelly Twp., Warren Co., IL.  But I can't find them there.

***1972 Terpening Armstrong Records reveals the information on Oscar's father of being in the Civil War which is written above plus During this time, his wife maintained the home northwest of Tylerville (where Daniel Adcock later lived) and looked after their four children. An epidemic of diphtheria caused the death of three of the Kellogg children. The mother was without help during their sickness and death because of the great fear of the disease. The three children are buried about a mile northeast of Tylerville, ===the gravestones desecrated and removed due to vandalism.
