I was not aware that my great-grandfather, John C. Neill, owned or operated a sternwheeler. I do have a lot of facts and a few stories about his later life. If this is the same man, he died in Waco,McLennan county, Texas in 1934. He is buried in East Waco's Greenwood cemetary. Supposedly he is buried alongside his second wife, C.E. Neill. (Cynthia Ellen) She died in 1912, in Waco also. The problem I and many others have is finding info on John C.'s father. He had the same first and middle initial, supposedly the "c" was for Calvin. I have found no proof of this. Please feel free to contact me for more info. Gary Neill. (817) 573-6081. Or (817) 504-4952 ATT cell.
