> My cousin and I have just begun on this line of our family, so are kind of at a loss which direction to take. We have such little to start with.
> I will try to state briefly what we have:
> Lovedy Campbell McNeill b. 1-4-1804 in Moore County, NC
> By 1823 she was in Autauga County, Alabama where she married George Patterson Cruikshank. Family lore says she and her grandfather, Laughlin/Locklin walked from NC to Autauga County shortly before this time. :>) After George Patterson was murdered in 1830, she married Isaac Estill in 1838 after she had relocated to Talladega County, Alabama where she lived out her life, dying 8-3-1881.
> We have found, from a will of John McNeill, probated in July, 1837 in Coosa County, Alabama a reference to his brother, Duncan's daughter, Lovedy Cruikshank.
> A couple of other cousins show Duncan b. 1770-1780 in NC, d. Before 1823 in Cumberland County, NC. I don't know where they obtained this information.
> If you have any knowledge of these McNeil families in NC, so many using the same given names, we would greatly appreciate any guidance you can give us.
> Thank you,
