Notes: "Little Neill" McNeill and his wife Catherine gave the one acre for the original Roger's Meeting House on his land on the west side of CFR in 1761. The deed for this transaction calls for the agreement of Little Neill's wife Catherine to co-sign for the sale of the one acre to the reps of the meeting house. So, was this one acre part of land she brought into their marriage? The land had been patented by Walker in 1742 and he sold it to Trantham in 1748 who sold it to Little Neill—was Catherine a Trantham? No children have been attributed to this couple. According to his will "Little Neill" a brother named John McNeill (who had a daughter Isabel) and a sister named Marron. Malcolm Fowler claimed "Little Neill" was with the Argyll Colony of 1739 but I can find no deed information that would hint he was in North Carolina that early and pre-1745 grants do not identify him. More research needs to be done to identify more fully this Neill McNeill.
