Subject: ONT - Neely's in Dufferin Co
Date: Wed, 16 Feb 2000 19:37:58 -0600
I've been "lurking" for a couple of weeks now and this seems like a
really helpful list, so here goes with my family interests in Ontario.
I am looking for info on the John Neely family in Dufferin County,
Melancthon Twn, but also Mulmur and Amaranth. I have also found them in
Proton Twn, Grey Co. And, they owned land in McKellar Twn, Parry Sound
District! John's wife was Anne McLean and they had 8 children that I
John and Anne were both born in Ireland circa 1800-1810, the first
record I have of them in Ontario is the 1851 census where they are in
Melancthon, with the first child born about 1835 in Ontario.
Children - Anne (Ben Cole), John Benjamin, Alexander, Thomas Maclean,
(my g-grandfather), Margaret (Ishmael Ruebotham), Robert, Lydia.
Any of this sound familiar to anyone? I would really like to find
when/where John and Anne were married and where they originated in
