I just came across some of your listings today when I logged into the Neece Family Genealogy Site today. I am a descendent of Mahala Neece from Missouri, who married Wiley English around 1860 in California.
I also notice that you have listed other names with which I am extremely familiar: Barnes, Colton, Cummings, Patton, Poe, Ellis, Reese, Mitchell. Barnes, Patton, Poe were friends of the Neece-English and went to their weddings. (I've got ancient newspaper clippings that even say the gifts that they gave.) Cummings and Mitchell married into the family. My great grandmother lived in Colton, California. I used to visit her there.
This is more than coincidence. I'd like to put our information together.
