Fern, thanks I knew I had seen that name Jarusha somewhere.
I have a hand drawn chart given to me years ago. Has a circle with arms.
In the circel are the words
children of James
2nd and his wife
James McNeill 2nd b. about 1804 in NC (some records show TN). His father was
James McNeill 1st of Scott Ancestry. James 2nd m. Martha Jarusha Broadway
born in TN 1810 of Dutch Descent.
On the arms are the children and spouces. Some of these arms have arms with
the names of their children.
Eliza McNeill m. ____ Skidmore
Adeline McNeill m. Billy Reed
Jarusha MeNeill m. William Killian
Harriett McNeill m. Andrew Killian
John McNeill (killed in Civil War)
Jim McNeill m. Jane Trimble
Wm "Bill" McNeill m. #1 Wilmoth Matthews
----------------------------#2 Margaret G. Matthews
Marion McNeill m. Debby Reed
George McNeill m. Jane Mason
The 1900 census list Margaret E. McNeill as Emmaline age 57 and her three
sons Stephen, Clarence and Trent are still with her. They are living next
door to John Hutson and family and living with them is a broader Robert C.
Matthews 80. Wonder if that is her father.
Some of the marriage listed above are in the Izard County marriage books.
I have an uncle by marriage from Jim McNeill line. This chart was not done
by me or my uncle. I don't know who it came from.
Thanks again Fern.
