Sorry for the delay, but I have been away for several weeks. Yes, this is the Fred R. Neal who was my great grandfather. I did find that Joseph's father was Charles Neal b. 1803 and mother was Permelia (also listed as Pamela, but Permelia is much more interesting) b. 1806. I could not find parents for either. My grandfather was Laforest Neal (b. 1896), son of Fred and Donzella (Wharff), and my father was Russell Neal b. 1927.
I would appreciate any information on Charles (1803) or wife Permelia or Donzella Wharff Neal.
