Good evening from Neely's Bend.I just came across this site this evening by accident.My name is John William Menees and I live in this little section of Davidson Country Tennessee where the descendants of James Jr. have been living for just over 200 years.There are currently 13 families in the community which either bear the name or have direct ties to it.A fourteenth will move into the community this summer.
James Jr died here in the "bend" and although there is some dispute over the burial site a number of family members believe he is buried here.
I would be interested in hearing from those of you who have ties to the family.
I am a retired United Methodist Minister married to Nancy for 53 years.We have 3 children and 6 grandchildren.The only great grandchildren so far are a number of cats and dogs ( no pun intended ).My mother, Bertha, died in January, just two week short of her 102nd birthday.
I will answer any and all inquiries regarding our family here and will welcome any information you may have.
