My GG Grandfather was Washington Neele or Neal, b.20 Feb 1802 in Kentucky, married Hetty Price,b.1816, d. 1859. They moved to Illinois befor 1836. They had 8 children. Sophia Jane, Margaret Rebecca, John Thomas, Eliza Elizabeth (Janey), Malizsa Ann, Hester Jane and William Harrison; my GGrandfather.
William came to Kansas in 1878, married Olive Shotwell, 1875 in Illinois, had 6 children, David (died in infancey), Lola, my grandmother, Leroy, Charles, twins who died in infancy, Olive died at the same time.
I cannot find any more information farther back.
The name was spelled Neele in the family bible for the Washington Neele family, but I found that is was spelled Neal in following generation and on the census records and deeds.
So if anyone can help me find more information, I would appreciate it.
