Al,
You have been a BIG help. I never considered that Jane could be Mary's daughter. I have a lot of Vance research and will check for a Jane. I will also check all the spellings of Neal for a Jane. See 2 brains help. Thanks so very much.

Clare,

Getting annoyed with all the email, I also took a look at the 1840
census to see if I could find some answers for you.

Going by Mary's age solely, the only or should I say the only close
candidate for her family is Daniel Neel who was in the East Ward of
Pittsburgh. Nothing on the NS. The reason I picked him is that
there is a woman listed 30-40 yoa and a child under 5 which was the
only one I looked at that matched Mary and her son John.

Now, making another assumption that Jane is Mary's mother and that
both have lived in Allegheny City or nearby for quite some time, I
searched for a Kelly that would have a woman falling in the 60-70
range and a daughter, another woman, falling in the 30-40
range. Anything or anybody else would be a bonus. I didn't find
anything for Allegheny City, Reserve Township, Pittsburgh as it was
at that time and one in Lower St Clair. I didn't find one woman in
the 60-70 age bracket named Kelly.

I'm sorry I couldn't be of more help.

Al
