NEAL posted by Shirley Baker on Sunday, November 17, 2002

Searching for information on F.E. NEAL. According to family bible, he was born 1827 in North Carolina. I believe he had at least two sons: James Jerome Neal born 1857 in Ark and Thomas Franklin Neal born 1854. There may be a third son, J.A. Neal.
F.E. Neal is listed on delinquent tax record of 1885 Rapides Parish. Living Next to him is John J. Neal. I believe they are related but not sure of the relationship.
I have found quite a few other Neals in Rapides Parish but can't establish a relationship with my Neals. Any help would be appreciated.
