My g-g-g-grandfather Nathaniel DAIL/DALE was born in 1810 in Co. Monaghan, Ireland. He married Jane MCNEIL/MCNEILL/MCNEAL who also was born in Ireland. They travelled from Ireland to Liverpool, England where they boarded the ship "Charles Chaloner", arriving in New Orleans, Louisana, USA on May 12, 1851. They travelled from New Orleans by boat up the Mississippi River to Albany, Illinois, eventually arriving in Portland Township, Whiteside Co., Illinois in 1851.
Nathaniel died in 1872/73 in Portland Township, Whiteside Co., IL. Jane died in St. Louis, MO, during their trip from New Orleans, LA to Albany, IL.
Nathaniel and Jane had three sons:
1. Nathaniel born in 1839 in Ireland, died in Spring Hill (Portland Township), Whiteside Co., IL in 1922. Believe he never married based upon research thus far.
2. Robert was born in Edenagoash, Co. Monaghan, Ireland on either Jan 12 1842 or Jun 13 1843. He married Elizabeth A. MCNEIL/MCNEAL/MCNEILL on July 4 1867/1867. He died in 1927 on Portland Township, Whiteside Co., IL.
3. John was born on Dec 15 1845 in Edenagoash, Co. Monaghan, Ireland. He married Florence BROWN on Oct 2 1879 in Whiteside Co, IL. John died on Oct 5, 1926/7.
Look forward to hearing from anyone with a link to this family. Thanks!
