Looking for information on family of Fulton Neely, living in Tallmadge township in Summit Co., as listed on the 1850 Census.His family is listed on page 490, roll 732. Family consists of Fulton (name may be Robert Fulton Neely) age 51, Mary age 48, William age 16 (should be my gggrandfather), Mary age 14, John age 11, Elizabeth age 10, and Maria age 7.Fulton is listed as a farmer, with a property value of 16,000 --- which seems high -- may be a mistake.Fulton is listed as born in Penn.William after he marries Elizabeth Jane Painter in Wayne Co. Ohio leaves for the west and ends up in Ottawa, LaSalle Co. Illinois.
I was lead to this 1850 Census because a Mary Neely that married Daniel S. Lockwood 06 May 1853 in Summit Co. Ohio, is termed a sibling to William Neely by her son Mark.He was living in LaSalle County, Illinois.William's widow in later years lived with him and was termed an aunt.
Some of this info does not match with a bio of William Neely written in 1886 in a History of Lasalle Co. Ill., and info from the death cert. of his wife.
On the 1880 Census William is listed as born in Kentucky, not Ohio.Mary (Neely) Lockwood lists Ohio.1850 has both born in Ohio.Age on William a little off.
Robert Fulton Neely married a Mary McCoart in Jefferson Co., Ohio after meeting her in Canada. (from bio)
Fulton Neely marries a Mary White in Jefferson Co.,Ohio, Oct 10, 1826. (Marriage Index:Selected Counties of Ohio)
Both Marys listed as born in Ireland.He is said to have met her on a business trip to Canada.The 1850 Census lists the youngest child as born in Canada in 1843, all others in Ohio.
The bio says the parents Robert Fulton and Mary lived in Kentucky, Steubenville, Ohio, moving to Summit County, Ohio and remaining there till their death.
My family history from William forward to me is solid.I have struggled with his parents and those of his wife.When I recently saw the reference of Mary Neely Lockwood as a sibling, and remembered a ref to her daughter Leta as a cousin I thought questions would be answered---but only more were added.
Any information on this particular family - 1850 - Fulton and Mary Neely, would be great.
