Title Portrait of Margaret Kell
Description Margret Kell was married to Irishman Thomas Kell. They were early residents of San Jose and gave the land for the Kell cemetery, west of Oakhill Cemetery, as a Catholic cemetery. The cemetery was later abandoned and Highway 87 was cut through the area. Louis Pellier had been buried in the Kell cemetery and was the first person to bring French Prunes to California. His body was removed and re-interned; his headstone now resides at the History San Jose Museum. Attached is proof sheet print.
