Notes on this Family : Mabel Lovin omitted the three daughters Daniel and Elizabeth had who are listed in his will of 1828. Lovin stated in her McNeill research that Danold and Elizabeth had a son named Benjamin Franklin McNeill but no such son can be found; however, a Benjamin F. McNeill is found in the 1900 census of Back Swamp in Robeson County, born in NC to parents who were born in NC, aged 44, with wife Harriet E. McNeill aged 44, and several children. Benjamin F. McNeill was executor of Archibald McNeill's 1882 will, and Barbara P. McNeill lived 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 are married and that is correct although Sallie didn't know of the third married sister. 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 brother Archibald -- who was living for a time in Louisiana then -- took Barbary to NC to live with him at his own expense. Barbara lived with Archibald at Moss Neck in Robeson below Philadelphus and it was there that the two raised their niece and nephew, Robert and LouLou, orphaned children of James Henry and Minerva McNeill who had died of cholera in Mississippi.
