To: Robert Craft, Jr., Re: Thomas T. Neale and wife Cleopatra Re: Neales of King William County, Virginia
If you cannot connect with Peyton Neale Clarke's book Re; the Neales, do not be down hearted. Clarke is incorrect on many points, especially the "Clergyman Edwards" head of the Edwards family and the Neales line prior to Robert Milton Neale (1822-1880). I am a King William County Neale but have not lived there for 65 years. I am elderly and do not have internet. I do not know how to work this so must get help. I believe we are cousins and I can possibly help you. Your note mentions a will of 1807. In my records I have Thomas T. Neale and wife Cleopatra alive and well in the late 1830's, possible longer. Is there any other way we can communicate other than this? Have you run across a John Turner Neale? There is a possible brother-brother connection here with William as the father of both Thomas T. and John Turner Neale.
