Although Jeremiah Gullion and the Neill family were living in Missouri at the time this Bible was inscribed, the Neill family was from Greene Co, IN and previously from Knox Co KY (1803-1820), prior to that from southwest Virginia counties (ca 1770-1803.) The Gullion (O'Gullion) family was from Westmoreland PA then migrated to central Kentucky about 1783. Perhaps a researcher from one of those areas will be interested in some of this data.
My cousin in Michigan gave me the Bible of Jeremiah Gullion. Jeremiah Gullion was my great-great grandfather, who married 4 times. The Bible includes marriages, births and deaths of Gullion and Neill families, as well as a few other names. The initial entries in the Bible are in a very beautiful handwriting, later entries the handwriting is not the same.
After Jeremiah's second wife died he married the widow of Daniel Neill, Amanda Jane (George) Neill. Daniel and Amanda Neill were my great-great grandparents for my mother's paternal lineage. Gets a little complicated. The following is the information in the Bible -- anyone related or interested in any of these folks please let me know.
