To McNEELY Family Web Page

 
April 2007, I have made some corrections to the line, spelling etc. Also at this time we don't have any evidence of Joseph's father so I dropped the David wife Rebecca off of here. This is my husband's line.

I also have been able to get the book Papa, The River, and Me written by S. 'Blake McNeely. Anyone interested in information in it contact me!

I would like to welcome a new researcher and a McNeely descendant into the family fold = Welcome to Janet! Great to have you with us. She is descended from Joseph Isaac "Ike" McNeely. He is number 23 below.
