Notes on this Family : The exact birth order of the children below is unknown. Research on this family is ongoing. A search of the 1830 census of Robeson for this Neill McNeill was inconclusive. A Cumberland Co. deed from Malcolm Stafford to the heirs of Nancy Hair (wife of Daniel Hair) present a puzzle. A series of Cumberland Co. deeds show that Nancy Hair's heirs were the children of Neill McNeill of Long Swamp listed below as well as the children of Margaret (McKay) McNeill who wrote her will in Robeson Co. in 1818, namely, Rosa Stafford, Catherine McNeill, Mary Smith, Lauchlin McNeill and John McNeill. Rosa, Catherine, Lauchlin and John all moved to Marion District, SC by 1834. Margaret's relationship to Neill McNeill of Long Swamp is suspected to be sister-in-law, having married Neill's older brother Daniel.
