Neal families to North GA from NC/SC/VA in early 1800's

Posted: 20 May 2007 12:39PM GMT
Classification: Query
I'm trying to track down the NEALS who lived in North Georgia in the 1800's, and came from either Virginia, North Carolina, or South Carolina, and track their migration and lineage, hoping to find more about their common ancestors and where they came from.

I've found them in many North Georgia counties, including Whitfield, Walker, Catoosa, Murray, Fannin, Gilmer, Lumpkin, Dawson, Hall, Chattooga, and probably others throughout the 1800's.

I believe my direct lineage comes from a James P. Neal b. 1798 in North Carolina, and his parents were from Virginia. His wife was from South Carolina, and James might have lived in South Carolina for a time. So I'm looking at other Neals born about the same time who might have been from the same Neal family.

The following Neals might have been brothers, they were born around the same time in North Carolina and migrated to North Georgia:

- James P. Neal b. 1798 in North Carolina, d. after 1880 in Whitfield County, Georgia. Lived many years in Dawson/Lumpkin Counties in Georgia.

- J.C. Neal b. abt 1805 in North Carolina, living in Chattooga County, Georgia in 1850.

- John M. Neal b. abt 1803 in North Carolina, living in Franklin County, Georgia in 1850.

- Moses Neal b. abt 1793 in South Carolina, but his wife was born in North Carolina, both living in Murray County, Georgia in 1850.

- Robert Neal b. abt 1787 in North Carolina, living in Murray County, Georgia in 1850.

- William Neal b. abt 1796 in North Carolina, living in Franklin County, Georgia in 1850.

- William Neal b. abt 1800 in North Carolina, living in Murray County, Georgia in 1850. This William Neal had a son, Alfred J. Neal, who was living near James P. Neal in Whitfield County, Georgia in 1880.

- William F. Neal b. abt 1804 in North Carolina, living in Franklin County, Georgia in 1850.

- UNKNOWN Neal d. before 1850. His widow and children/grandchildren are living in Cherokee County in 1850. Both widow and all children were born in North Carolina, likely this unknown husband also was born in North Carolina.

last but not least

- Dickey Neal b. abt 1776 in North Carolina, living in Franklin County, Georgia in 1850.

----------------------------

Notice how almost all of them are from North Carolina, and ended up in the same or nearby counties in North Georgia? And they all showed up in North Georgia about the same time, and often in the census records you'll find them living near eachother. All of these Neals might not be related, but it's possible many are. James and William (father of Alfred) might have been brothers. Actually, many of them might have been brothers, and Dickey could have been their father.

I haven't yet found a copy of "Beaver Pond Neals of Virginia" to check there.

Anyone who has any information on any of these Neals or their ancestors or descendants, please let me know. I'm really hoping to track them back much farther, and find out how they're related.
