Notes: Elizabeth is stated in a deed dated 1803 to have been the only surviving child and heir of Hector McNeill who received a 222-acre grant on the NE side of the Cape Fear River near the drains of Locks Creek and the mouth of Dunfield Creek in 1740. A cemetery was located there in 1803. Hector could not sign his name which in original documents differentiates him from "Bluff Hector" McNeill. In what I believe is his last two deeds, dated 1774 and 1778, he is stated as living in Bladen County. This could mean that he was living in Bladen with his daughter's family up to this time.
