In Reply to: Neil Famiily by Sharon Snider of 37

Lawrence Alfred Neil, buried in the Evergreen Cemetery, Priest River, Bonner County, ID, born Oct 1, 1873, died Jan 19, 1958:

On his tombstone: Janette Lee Neil, born/died Jan 16, 1938.

The cemetery has a John Anton Neil, born 9/13/1911, died 4/19/1972

He was married to Sylvia Mae Byers Neil, daughter of Ephraim Byers and Johannah Byers. The record showed he was born in Bemidji, Beltrami Co, Minnesota.

I found two family trees having John Anton Tony Neil, one was yours. Another family tree identifies his marriage was on 14 Sep 1931. He and Sylvia had a son, Lyle A. Neil, 29 Oct 1933 to 12 May 2002. Lyle was married to "M." living.
---Lyle's grave information was posted by the same person having the above family tree, "C.J.A." It identifies Lyle's wife as Lois M. There is a photo of Lyle on the site:

I'd suggest contact with C.J.A. about this family.

The WA Digital Archives:
identified Oliver Neil of Bonner County, ID, married Fern Angell of Pend Oreille County, WA on 6 May 1923, William and Alice Daggett witnesses.
--The 1930 Census for Elk River, Clearwater County, ID

Fern, age 28, born in Michigan
Laurel, age 5, born in Idaho
Sharlee, age 2, born in WA.
--The 1910 Census for Spokane, Spokane Co, WA
David H. Angell, 50, wife Julia V, 51; children: Pearl 24; Mable, 21; Tom 18/Fern 18 (twins) (1891/1892); Wave 15, Nihl 11; all children born in Michigan.

Ritzville Journal-Times, Thursday, June 26, 1930, issue
Washtucna Teacher Passes
       This community was saddened by the news of the death of Miss Wave Angell, age 33, who passed away Saturday night at her home at University Place, Spokane, of heart trouble. Miss Angell was primary teacher here last year. She had been a resident of Spokane for 20 years. She was a North Central high school graduate and also a Cheney Normal graduate. She taught in Lind several years before coming to Washtucna. She is survived by her parents, Mr. and Mrs. David Angell, three sisters, Miss Mabel Angell and Mrs. Pearl Armcost, Spokane, Mrs. Fern Neil, Elk River; three brothers Vern of Walla Walla, Earl of Troy, Mont., and Nihl of Spokane. The services were held on Tuesday and interment was in Riverside park.
--Elk River is in Clearwater County, ID.
--I could not find any of the three, Oliver, Fern, Sharlee or Laurel after the 1930 Census.

Your best bet is in Bonner Co, ID, with CJA. Here also is a volunteer that works in that county:
