Notes for Adam Neill, Jr.:

Adam Neal Jr. born 1779. Adam Neal, Jr. was married two times. The name of his first wife is unknown. Adam is not listed separately on the 1810 census for Lincoln County. He may have been living at home with his father in 1810 . The 1820 census of Lincoln County, NC lists Adam (26 to 45) and wife (26 to 45) and three females (0 to 10). The 1830 census lists Adam and 2 males 0-5, 2 females 0-5, 2 females 5-10. Adam is listed as 50 to 60 and his second wife as 20 to 30. Adam's first wife died before the 1830 census and Adam Neal remarried to Sarah Oates, the daughter of John Oates. They were married in March of 1830. Between 1837 and the census of 1840, Adam Neal, Jr. removed his family to Murray County, Georgia. In 1836 Adam and Sarah Neal had a son Adam who died. Adam was born December of 1830 died in 1836 and is buried at Laboratory Methodist Church, Lincolnton, NC. Adam Neal was a member of the Murray County Rangers in 1838 along with John Oates and William S. Oates. Adam Neal died in 1839. He was laid to rest with his son Adam (who died 1836) at Laboratory Methodist Church. The will of Adam Neal, Jr. which was probated in 1840 in Murray County, GA, listed the following children:
a. James Ervin Neal born between 1830 and 1835. No further information.
b. John Oates Neal born between 1835 and 1840. No further information.
c. Mary Jane Neal born between 1835 and 1840. No further information.

These three children were born to Adam by his second wife, Sarah Oates, after their marriage in 1830. Three daughters were born between the 1810 and 1820 census. One daughter may have been Lucinda Neal born around 1818 and who married Daniel Black in Lincoln County March 24, 1837. There may have been another daughter born in 1811 named Barbara who married an unknown Mauney. Four other unknown daughters were born between 1820 and 1830. Two unknown sons were also born between 1825 and 1830. Evidently Adam Jr.'s first unknown wife died during the birth of one of these children.
Sarah Oats Neal is mentioned in the will of her father, John Oats, in 1849. Evidently ten years after the death of Adam Neal, she has not remarried. Adam Neal, Jr. 1779-1839 was buried in close proximity to Moses Moore at Laboratory Methodist Church in Lincolnton, NC. These are the oldest graves at this location. NOTE: It is not known if a church existed at this location in 1839 or if this was a Moore family cemetery. Perhaps Adam Neal, Jr. is buried here because of some type of relationship with Moses Moore.
