CG O'Kelly and Family

I need help locating information on my grandmother and her father and mother. Unfortunately I have no info other than whats posted in my profile which is:

I would like to know if anyone can help me on a particular search regarding my grandmother and my great grandfather...This is what I know:

From 1904 to 1910 Cadd Grant O'Kelly aka C.G. O'Kelly was the second Chief Administrator of what was then "Slater Industrial Academy and State Normal School" later called Winston-Salem State University. There is a library at WSSU called the C.G. O'Kelly Library. He had a daughter named Corinne nee O'Kelly (my grandmother). In 1922 Corinne O'Kelly Graves, gave birth to my mother Corinne Virginia Graves. In 1926 she gave birth to my aunt Anne Vivian Graves. From what I understand she died shortly after that. The two daughters were then sent to Danville, VA to live with their paternal grandmother. This is the only information I have, and this info was given to me by my mother, Corinne, jr. who passed away in 1977.

Where do I start? I contacted Winston-Salem State University and corresponded with an archivist at the CG O'Kelly Library but he simply referred me to his book which had 2 sentences about CG O'Kelly...can anyone help me?
