Hello My 3rd great grandmother was Margaret L Neal, b. 5 Jul 1824 in Rose, Wayne, NY.For many years, my family believed her parents to be John Neal and Eunice Richison.I found death information tonight for Eunice Richeson-Neal in Calhoun county (1798-1878).After locating her in earlier censuses, her husband's name is LEVI, not John.
Levi Neal was born in CT, c 1790.I suspect Litchfield Co., CT, but that's just a theory for now.I've identified 5 children: Melinda Jane b. 1822 in Huron, Wayne, NY; Margaret; and three children who are with them in the 1850 census: Harriet (1830), Charles (1833), and William (1836) - all born in NY.
Levi died after the 1870 census, but before Eunice in 1878. Eunice's father was listed at her death as Joseph Richeson, and she is listed as being born in VT (1850 census), NH (1860), and Maine (death).She is missing from the household in the 1870 census.
Trying to identify any additional children, as well as confirm the parentage of both Levi and Eunice (who may be Richardson, Richeson, or Richison).
