    Default Trivia question, Jackelyn Mae Kelly Morris

    I have a trivia question for everyone. I donít know the answer to this, maybe someone else does.There are two gravesites after about 9.5 miles north of Hot Springs on the AT.One belongs to Rex R. Pulford, who died of a heart attack in 1983 during an AT thru-hike.The other one belongs to Jackelyn Mae Kelly Morris, who died at the age of 50 in 1990.It honors Rex R. Pulford, who died of a heart attack in 1983 during an AT thru-hike.The other one belongs to Jackelyn Mae Kelly Morris, June 15, 1940 to Sept 9, 1990.Does anyone know Jackelyn Mae Kelly Morris or anything about her?

    Default Jackelyn Mae Kelly Morris

    geni.com, a genealogy website, has this profile of Jackelyn and a "contact profile manager" link. https://www.geni.com/people/Jackelyn...00013487616335 Perhaps someone could contact the profile manager, explain the connection felt by hikers, and respectfully ask what her connection to the AT was.

    I knew Jackie Kelly at Grainger High School, Kinston NC. She was class 1958; me 1957. I was born 15Apr1940, 2 months before her. She rode in my carpool 1956-57. Her mother, Mrs John Kelly. taught me Latin 1954-56.
    I was fond of Jackie, but she had her eye on a NC State freshman. So I lost track of her. She was bright, kind and attractive.
    I would like to hear from her family.
    I married a VaTech girl; now have two daughters and one granddaughter.
