Hey, Jim. Re: elder John C Meneely who went to Texas & returned. I have his youngest daughter (youngest sister of your Noble Meneely b.1807) Elizabeth b.abt1827 who m.1844 Clinton Co IN to Francis A Leach (they also went to Texas and stayed, he was a private in Confederate Texas Infantry, mayor of Weatherford, TX, etc). Do you have further info on Elizabeth Meneely/Francis A Leach in Indiana? I'm trying to trace F A Leach's parents. If you could point me in the right direction, I'd surely appreciate your help. Have you obtained info on parents/ancestry of the elder John C Meneely who m. Isabella Cunningham? I see some family trees on them at Ancestry.com & I can point you to them if you still need this info. Thanks for your help.
