When did Kelleyville become Kellyville?
I noticed when posting recent church news that Kelleyville Community Church is on Kellyville Road.
I asked churchmember Linda Tucker about it, and she says, "I have always known the church has a 'e' but the road doesn't, not sure who is right or who is wrong."
Although there don't seem to be any road signs confirming it, the General Highway Map for Adair County from the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet lists the official name of the community as "Kellyville," and all three maps I've consulted agree on the name of the road, at least since the 1990s.
A search of the CM archives turns up lots of examples of both spellings for both road and church over the years, with the official photo in our Directory of Churches, taken back in 2010 by photographers Joe Hare and John E. Moss, listing the church as "Kellyville Community Church." It's possible that the late, great Ed Waggener's preference for brevity propagated a misspelling across dozens of photos and articles over the years. I know that I've consulted that listing to un-correct the spelling to "Kellyville" on many occasions.
Google lists (and tries to autocorrect) everything to Kellyville, including the name of the church. However, The Google is clearly wrong in this instance, as the church name is confirmed both online and empirically--on the sign at the entrance--as "Kelleyville Community Church."
Do you remember when or why that divergence in spelling occurred? Use our contact form to weigh in.
