Delilah Barton & Benjamin Neale born c1760

I have been unable to find the ancestry of an ancestor named Delilah Barton possibly from Butler Co., KY and born c1761 (although some think she was born in MD but was living in KY). She died after 1857 in Washington, D.C. and is buried in IN.

Delilah Barton married Benjamin Neale born 13 Feb 1760 in Farquier Co., VA, s/o Joseph Neale. Benjamin Neal died 15 Apr 1853 in Moral, Shelby, IN. Delilah Barton Neal may have died at the home of a daughter Mary (Mrs. Wm. Bird, a lumber merchant in Washington, D.C.) after 1857 and is buried in IN next to her husband.

Additional information below.


Benjamin Neal(e) was born c1752 in VA, s/o Joseph Neale. Benjamin Neale went to Hampshire Co., married 1) John Earsom's widow Christianna. She must have died, because he moved to Butler Co., KY, marrying 2) Delilah Barton in Byrd Tsp., Adams County, OH on 4 Feb 1807 (W. Union), Ohio. They were living in Butler County, Kentucky and crossed the Ohio river to get married. They also lived in Muhlenburgh Co., & Logan Co (Lincoln Co. now), KY 1806-1852. Benjamin died April 15, 1853 at the home of his son-in-law Woodbeck Low in Shelby County, Indiana and was buried in the Old Sugar Creek Cemetery, Shelby Co, IN. Delilah is also buried there although she might have died in Washington, D.C.

Benjamin and Delilah Barton Neal had the following children:

1. Joseph N. A. Neal, b: 11 Jan 1806. (It is possible that Joseph's mother was Christianna Earsom rather than Delilah). Joseph m: Sarah Gish, 02/25/1831, Hopkins Co, KY. Also lived in Muhlenberg Co., KY.

2. Mary Neal, b: ca 1810, m: William Bird of Washington, D.C., a lumber merchant.

3. Matthew H. Neal.

4. Richard Benjmain Neal, b: ca 1813 in KY, m: Mary Charlotte France, 01/25/1836, Muhlenberg Co, KY. Also lived in Rush Co., & Shelby Co., IN.

5. Thomas T. Neal, m: Eliza (_______).

6. Joshua Neal.

7. John Neal.

8 Mahala Neal.m: Eli Thomas, 09/05/1844, Rush Co, IN.

9. Malinda Neal, b: 9 Feb 1818.m: Woodbeck C. Lowe, 09/27/1838, Hancock Co, IN and Shelby Co., IN. Woodbeck is a son of Thomas Witbeck Lowe and Elsie Ann Curtis.
