This is my research so far into my family's lines of McNeil, Sweet, Babcock, Gould, Davis, Moss, and Potter; and my husband's lines of Cowman, Veatch, Millican, Dodd, and Roberts. I welcome hearing from any other researchers who have been researching these lines. I want to take this opportunity to thank all those who have helped me gather this information. I could never have done it all by myself.

  • Mary Litch McNeilwith sister-in-law (143 KB)
    This is Walter McNeil's second wife, Mary Litch McNeil. His first wife and two sons died in an epidemic in Michigan. This appears to be taken about the same time as Walters. The next two pictures are also of Mary, but much later in her life.
  • Alpha Devilo McNeil (29 KB)
    My great-grandfather A.D. McNeil in later life. Taken in Kalispell, MT.
  • Mary Litch McNeil (72 KB)
    Birthday photo?
  • Cora Sweet McNeil (28 KB)
    My great-grandmother. Stories of hearing her recite her lineage from John & Priscilla Alden and her husband's (A.D. McNeil) response that he had never bothered to trace his lineage due to the high probability of a horse thief as an antecedent, inspired me to start researching my family's tree.

    Taken shortly before her death
  • Mary Naomi (Day) Moss with children (43 KB)
    I believe this picture to be of my great-great-grandmother, Mary (Day) Moss, and her children. I know my great-grandmother, Otie Moss, is standing in the back and her younger sister, Hope, is seated on the far right of the photo. I don't know the names of the oldest girl, the boy, or the baby in the photo. Mary is seated holding the baby.
