Re: Neeley Family Tree
The info I have has father & mother, David Neeley and Jane Feather from Pennsylvania.Their children, Robert, Samuel, John(probably the oldest), Lucinda and Jane all being born in Pennsylvania also.I found John and family in Platteville, Wis., in the 1850 census.Samuel had David and Jane living with him along with Albert, Emma and William Gillis. They are my ggggrandfather and his sister and father.William married Lucinda and she died in childbirth with Emma probably in 1848/9. Robert is listed with his wife and also with Edward Gillis, a son to William and brother to Albert.John has a daughter also named Lucinda, age 6, and born in Pa. I found out that Samuel left the area and moved to Nebraska and died in Wyoming.
I have a researcher in Platteville looking into land purchases for me now and he has found info on land owned by Robert.Robert raised Albert Gillis after his father left for the Gold Rush and was said to have owned a butcher shop. Any info you have would be appreciated.Lynda
