NEELY family: MASS, CAN, ?IRELAND?
Posted by: Jackie Neely (ID *****9820) Date: October 19, 2004 at 11:40:09
  of 624

My father William James NEELY born & died in Boston, MA. His father: Joseph T. NEELY b.1881 QUE, CAN d.1971, Boston. My grgrandfather: James W. NEELY (Sexton @ Gate of Heaven Chh-So. Boston) no dates, was likely b. in IRELAND - abt 1845-60, d. MA. His father John NEELY likely b. in IRE. I believe that many of my NEELYs left IRE abt 1830's-40's for CANADA (QUE?). My James had several sibs, including: "ALEC" JOSEPH, ELIZABETH who may all have come together with their families from Canada to US. I believe many came to MASS betw the late 1890's and 1906 when several appear to have been naturalized as US citizens. My Dad died when I was only 5 y.o. The Neely relatives I knew said that they knew very little of their origins and in fact, seemed disinterested. Please write if any of this seems familiar.
- Jackie
