I am looking for any information about an Ellinor or Eli Neal. She lived in Orange County, NC. She was on the census in 1810, 1820, and 1830. She passed away before the 1840 census. She had at least 4 daughters and 2 sons. I am sure one son's name was Wriley Neal. He lived next to her in the later census. I know there is a connection with Eli and my ancestor Thomas Jefferson Neal. I think he is either her son or one of her grandchildren. I am not sure. I have found little to nothing about her in Orange County except the census. She is the head of the household from 1810-1830. She was of course married to a Neal at one time. I believe it may have been one of two James Neal families that where listed in the 1800 census. I am assuming he died. Elinor was between 50-60 years old in 1830 and was under 45 in 1820, so I am guessing she was born about 1776-1780.
I did find a record that a James McFarlane of Russell county, VA in his will probated 1825 he named Elinor Neal and her daughter Mary. I know he lived for a short time in Orange County, NC. If anyone has any information please contact me.
