I wondered if Peter Neel might be a nephew of Thomas and Eleanor Neel and that Calvin was Peter's father and Calvin a brother to Thomas Neel of Wolfe Creek.In 1830 census for Tazewell it shows Calvin to be born between 1750-1760.Peter is listed directly under Calvin and born between 1800-1810.
According to the 1830 census, Calvin would be about the right age to be a brother to Thomas then Peter, being right under Calvin, his son.You state Peter may be the grandson of Thomas and Eleanor, so who was the father of Peter? Gordon Calvin Neel is also listed in 1840 Tazewell County census and born abt 1820.It shows his father being born in Virginia and his mother as well.His father is supposed to be Alexander Neel? So if Alexander Neel is the son of Thomas and Eleanor, then Alexander named his son Gordon "Calvin" Neel.
I also see where you list Thomas married to Eleanor born in Ireland.I find this interesting because most folks say he was born in Virginia.
