Thanks very much Carole. I already have the obit, but how kind of you to offer. My problem is trying to connect all the McNiece's living in Adelaide township, and figuring out exactly where they came from in Ireland. This one says Mayo, another of those McNiece's gives Tyrone! Slightly frustrating.

Thanks again,

I'm descended from Mary Jane McNeice. I have a list of Johns(t)on and Martha's children and spouses. This is my first foray into Canada so I have no additional information to offer you.

Would it be possible for me to also get that list of
Johnston and Martha's children and spouses from you?
Like PBRassociates, I too am connected to the McNeice's
of Adelaide Twp., Middlesex Co., Ontario, Canada. Trying
to figure out if the Johnston McNeice's are connected by
blood to the McNeice sept I descend from and, if so, how.
Wouldn't hurt to have info you are offering in case someday
I find a/the connection.

Can be contacted direct at

Will do. Seems there are several of us wondering whether
there is a blood connection, if so, what it is.

There is a William McNeice, d. 1988, and a Dorothy Beatrice McNeice, d. 1973, buried in the Creelman Cemetery in Saskatchewan. Would you happen to know who they are and if and/or how they may fit into either of our McNeice Family Trees?
