Re: Nancy McNeil of Goshen, Litchfield Co, CT
I saw some of your posts on the Litchfield, CT McNeils. I have a lost Nancy McNeil my GGGG grandmother, born Nov 1780 in Goshen. She married Virtue Bronson in 1800 either in Waterbury, CT or Onondago Co, NY. I have not found their record but Virtue's first wife died giving birth to their 1st child which also died in 1799 in Waterbury. On the 1800 C, Virtue is in Onondaga Co, NY with a female of same age. This is Nancy McNeil.
Luckily for me, I have vairous sources that say she came from Goshen in Litchfield Co, CT including a very clear photo of her gravestone which reads:
"Nancy (McNeil) Bronson, 1780 - 18 Mar 1857 Age 77y; b Goshen CT" I have a couple of her children's bios in those famous Beer Pub Co end of the 1800s county books with bios & history that say she was born Nov 1780.
I have been searching for her parents for mannnny years. I'm hoping she may connect to yours. Another problem is that the name Nancy is often interchanged with Ann, Agnes, etc.
