I've been researching the Neills and Falls of the Rowan, Iredell, Lincoln, Cleveland, and Gaston, NC county areas. My ancestor, Rosannah Falls Dickson (1775-1823) was the daughter of Andrew and Sarah Neill Falls.This Sarah Neill Falls was supposed to have been the daughter of an Andrew Neill, according to some info I've found on the internet.However, Sarah Neill Falls is buried in the old Pisgah Cemetery in Gaston County, NC, where her grave says she was 84 years old when she died in 1830.This would make her born about 1746. The Andrew Neill that was supposed to be her father was born, reportedly, about 1734, making him ?12? years old when she was born?Some info on the internet says she was born about 1752, but even if that were true, her father would have been a mere 18, very young for men of that time.Besides, I tend to believe her tombstone more. I thought I could verify when Andrew Neill was born by his tombstone, since he wasn't supposed to have died until 1814 in Iredell County, but I can't find any record of it on the internet. So, can anybody confirm Andrew Neill's dates of birth and death? I'm beginning to wonder if Sarah Neill Falls was the daughter of some other Neill, maybe William, who was supposed to be Andrew's father. All these Neills and Falls using the same first names are confusing! Thanks! Sherry P.S. I've noticed that the Neill name is spelled in various ways, which is typical of that time when most people were illiterate.The N-A-I-L mis-spelling seems a bit odd, even for that time, but way out in the country in the Deep South, Neill is still pronounced like the word nail - nayull.So some courthouse clerks may have spelled it phonetically, which would have been Nail.I'm not casting aspersions here, I pronounce it neeyull myself.
