Francis William Kellogg (May 30, 1810-January 13, 1879) was a U.S. Representative from the states of Michigan and Alabama.
Kellogg was born in Worthington, Massachusetts and attended the common schools. He moved to Columbus, Ohio, in 1833 and then to Grand Rapids, Michigan, in 1855 where he engaged in the lumber business with the firm Kellogg, White & Co. at Kelloggville (which was named after him) in Kent County, Michigan. He was a member of the Michigan State House of Representatives in 1857 and 1858.
Kellogg was elected from Michigan as a Republican to United States House of Representatives for the Thirty-sixth, Thirty-seventh, and Thirty-eighth Congresses, serving from March 4, 1859 to March 3, 1865. During the American Civil War, he organized the Second, Third, and Sixth Regiments by authority of the United States Department of War and was appointed colonel of the Third Regiment. He was appointed by U.S. President Andrew Johnson as collector of internal revenue for the southern district of Alabama on April 30, 1866, and served until July 1868, residing in Mobile, Alabama.
Upon the readmission of Alabama to the Union, Kellogg was elected as a Republican to the Fortieth Congress, serving from July 22, 1868, to March 3, 1869. He then moved to New York City and later to Alliance, Ohio, where he died. He is interred in Fulton Street Cemetery in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
