Biographical/Historical note

Francis William Kellogg was born on May 30, 1810 in Worthington, Hampshire County, Massachusetts. He moved to Columbus, Franklin County, Ohio in 1833 and then to Grand Rapids, Kent County, Michigan in 1855. He was a member of the Michigan state House of Representatives in 1857 and 1858. In 1859 he was elected to the United States House Representatives and served from 1859 to 1865. By the authority of the United States Department of War, during the Civil War Kellogg organized the 2nd, 3rd and 6th Michigan Infantry and was appointed colonel of the 3rd Michigan Infantry. During Reconstruction, he was appointed by United States President Andrew Johnson as the collector of internal revenue for the southern district of Alabama and served in that capacity, residing in Mobile, Alabama from 1866 until 1868. When Alabama was readmitted into the Union, Kellogg was elected to the United States House of Representatives from Alabama and served from 1868 to 1869. He then moved to New York City, and later to Alliance, Stark County, Ohio where he died in 1879.
