Article published in April 1985 Mennonite Family History:

IMMIGRANT JACOB SHELLY

The family of immigrant Jacob Shelly was quite a prolific one. It is believed that he was the eldest of the brothers. Certainly, he was the first to die. He, too, was unmarried when he settled in Lancaster County. He married the daughter of his neighbors, Swiss Immigrants Anthony and Magdalema Kniesley.

SHELLY IMMIGRANTS

There is some question as to whether there were three or four Shelly brothers who immigrated with one sister in the 1720s. The name Jacob Shelly on a May 5, 1725, land deed in Milford Township, Bucks County, PA., suggests that there is a connection between Christian, Daniel, and Jacob Shelly who eventually settled in Lancaster County and Abraham Shelly who farmed in Bucks.

Certainly, the time of settlement was close and all four were Mennonites of probable Swiss orgin. Further support for this argument is that Abraham's descendants are shown owning the same land in Milford Township that once belonged to Jacob.
