Notes: Mabel Lovin stated in her McNeill research that Danold and Elizabeth had a son named Benjamin Franklin McNeill but that is incorrect; Benjamin F. (Fitzrandolph) McNeill was the son of William Culbreth McNeill and Pamela Ann Drake and is found in the 1900 census of Back Swamp in Robeson County, born in NC to parents who were born in NC, aged 44, wife Hariet E. (nee McEachin) McNeill aged 44, with several children. Benjamin F. McNeill was executor of Archibald McNeill's 1882 will, and Barbara P. McNeill with Archibald in the Moss Neck section of the county near Back Swamp. In Archibald's will he names his sister Barbara P. McNeill as "Barbary P. McOftes". In a diary by Barbary's cousin entitled The Uncompromising Diary of Sallie McNeill 1858-1867, Sallie states that Barbary had two sisters who were married: The elder sister Isabella married to Archibald C. Currie, and I discovered that another sister, Flora Ann McNeill, married Hector B. "Black Hector" McNeill (1813-1893, son of Malcom C. McNeill and Ruth FitzRandolph), but I neglected, sadly, to record my source for that bit of info; it appears Hector and Flora Ann had no children and it is recorded that Hector married Joanna Douglas, likely after Flora Ann's death. Sallie also states that Barbara had returned to Louisiana only to find their brother, James, married and "unatural", a scoundrel who would not help support her. She went on to say Barbara's brother Archibald took Barbary to NC to live with him at his own expense.
