I'm sorry I wasn't very precise as to my family line. My name is Carole Neel. I was married, but after my divorce I took my maiden name of Neel back. My sister and I went over your info and we do have some changes in the Neel line. I actually have the Alexander book and there are mistakes in there, also. Over the next couple of weeks, I will try to send you corrections. I do work during the day, so I will do my best. I actually live in Lancaster, Pa. and have been doing research on my line off and on for 20 years, mostly off. My father is Guy Alexander Neel who was married to Mabel Weaver Miller.
My mother was his third wife. If you think Neel is a hard line to follow, try Weaver and Miller. I could pull out my hair. Anyway, in going over your info, I was very much interested in getting in touch with Wilma F Jones, who appears to have some items from Hagen/Alexander. Is there any way you could give me her E-Mail or address? I would appreciate it.
Thank you again for your wonderful site and of the way you have it designed. You made it so easy to explore!!
