(1860), Barnet being employed as a blacksmith. Their children and grandchildren are listed below with spouses in parentheses.
[NI062704] Occupation, weaver.
Rev. John was believed to have been educated at Oxford. He wrote and taught the Calvinistic System. Because the English ruler was Catholic he and many of the Parish were persecuted until conditions became intolerable. His brother Christopher and wife sailed with brother Joseph, Master of the ship "Love" for New England. Two years later Rev. John made application to sail and was refused (from the records of Westminister, was written in the margin "This man was forbyden passage by the commissners. and went not from Yarmouth".
One report places him at New Haven 1638-40. Woods, in his history of Long Island, where he makes Young a Minister at Hingham, England and came to New Haven with part of his church in 1640 and to begin the settlement of Southold, in Oct of that year.

She was the only Dau. of Barnett & Mary Neal & was b. in Green Co. PA Sep 21 1815. She became a member of the Christian church while young & was a consistent member. It is believed she was converted under the preaching of Alexander Campbell. The deceased moved with her parents to Monroe Co., OH, in 1840 & again to Butler Co., IA in 1869, where she became blind or nearly so when she was 30 yrs of age & has been cared for by her bro. since she came to Butler Co. She was 81 yrs old at her decease & was never married.
Thomas Jefferson was b. in Greene Co., PA in 1817 & was raised on a farm in Greene Co., PA. Thomas m. Clarissa Elizabeth Colley on a Sun., 28 Feb 1841. We do not know just where they were m., but we do know that they went to Pittsburgh, PA for their honeymoon, as there is a table in the Young family that was bought by Thomas & Clarissa in Pittsburgh when they were there. In 1960 the table was in possession of Grace Young Peterson, who lived in Clinton, IA.
Their 1st child John was b. 4 Dec 1841 in Fayette Co., PA but the child died. (The story is that the mother was kicked by a cow & lost a child, & this may be the child.) After the 2nd child was b., Mary Magdalene, in 1842 they moved to Monroe Co., OH where Thomas' parents had moved in 1837 from PA. The next 6 was b. in OH. In the 1850 Monroe Co.OH census, Thomas Neal 33 a farmer whose property was valued at $1420. There was 4 dau.s in the home, plus a B.F. Young, age 15, male, a laborer, b. in PA. By 1860 3 sons had joined the family plus a David Dynes, 20 b. in Ireland, a servant. The land valued was $6,500./ $1,000. In several bits of information in the Monroe Co. History showed that between 1850 & the early 1860's Thomas Neal performed several marriages including his bro. Joseph Nathan to Elizabeth Mitchell 12 Mar 1853 Monroe Co., OH. Attachment by Thomas Neal on Property of John Phillips of Perry Twp -- the road from Woodsfield & to Sistersville & Antioch, the land between was owned by Thomas Freeman, Thomas & Joseph Neal. At the time of the Civil War, Thomas Neal & his family were living in Marietta, OH, where Thomas had a flour mill, his dau. Mary used to ride a fine grey horse & carry the burrs on the horse to a distant town to have them sharpened. She has told her dau. about the horse running away with her one time, but it did not throw her. She rode side saddle & had a beautiful riding habit & a fine whip that were kept with her things for yrs. Thomas Neal enlisted from Woodsfield, OH & was mustered into service on 7 Sep 1861 at Camp Boles VA. As a Capt. of Co. C 2nd VA Mounted Volunteers, subsequently known as Company C 2nd WV Cavalry, to serve for 3 yrs. He was honorably discharged 6 Jun 1862, but later took part in several campaigns under Gen. Crook. (He used his own money got his men together for Co. C ). Thomas Neal, Capt., Jeremiah Boyd, 1st Lieut. & William Church, 2nd Lieut. The regiment was discharged 4 Dec 1865. George Amlin, Ezra Barker, & Silas Young of this Co. ended up as Thomas Neal's sons-in-law. We wonder how many of the group was relation. Cpl Enoch L. Dye was Silas Young's step-bro. Others with the name Mitchell, Dye, Huffman, Kinkaid, these name have been found in history attach to the Neals. In Monroe Co. History, in 1912 a Civil War Soldiers Monument was dedicated to the members of Co. C 2nd WV Cavalry. The monument was erected at the Free baptist Burying grounds at Antioch, OH. The Monument was erected by the living members. In 1869 the Thomas Neal family moved to Warrensburg, MO. In a Monroe Co. paper, 3 Aug 1869 it is stated Mr. Thomas Neal, who removed from Beallsville, OH to MO writes that he has bought a farm of 414 acres southeast of Warrensburg in Johnson Co., MO. The farm was 7 miles southeast of Warrensburg, & it was there that they went to get their mail. The 23 May 1870 Thomas lost his Clarissa, she d. of cancer, & was buried in the Sutton Cem. near Warrensburg. In the same yr we find Berkley E. Barker (son of Lucinda Neal Barker) & Mary M. Neal Amlin & her dau. Alice "Georgie" living with the Neals in MO. Lucinda d. at the time of her child's birth, leaving the son to be raised by his grandparents, & Mary's husb. George Amlin had d., so Mary moved to MO to take care of her mother who was ill in bed for a yr. many of the family wish they could have known their grandmother Clarissa Elizabeth. It is said in the KS biography of the Neal family that she was a most estimable woman & possessor of much greatness of character & raised 7 chldrn. From MO the Neal family moved to Comanch Co., KS in 1873 & then in 1880, Thomas & the sons moved to Pratt KS. Son Joseph bought a river farm & Thomas bought the wheat farm a mile north of Joseph. However, Thomas mortgaged it for all he could get out of it to court a widow. But he did not marry her, She took somebody else. Joseph then ended up paying off the mortgage. According to my Aunts, Thomas never work after he came to Pratt, KS. The thought was Thomas never did work, but used the money that Clarissa had inherited from her family, & what he got from the Civil War. They raised Wheat in MO with the money & had livestock also. They did the same in KS. Capt. Thomas Neal lived with his son Joseph Barney & wife Susan Branaman Neal until his death 29 Dec 1901, Pratt, KS.
[NI062845] Barnet called himself a "capitalist.
[NI062847] Joseph Nathan Neal appears more frequently than his bro.s in Monroe Co. deed records, 30 times in 20 yrs, & may have been somewhat of a speculator. He migrated with his parents to IA about 1869.
[NI062853] MRS. SI YOUNG PASSES Mrs. Si Young pioneer Pratt Co. resident, d. Mon. at her home in Shattuck, OK, at the age of 87 yrs. She moved with her husb. to Shattuck after leaving Pratt more than 25 yrs ago. Mr. Young was one of the early day Co. officials here, serving as register of deeds. Funeral serv.s were held here Wed. afternoon from the Presby. church conducted by Rev. B. F. Henry. Interment was in Greenlawn Cem. with Rosser morticians in charge. She is survived by her husb., 3 dau.s, Mrs. Charles Crossfield of Pritchett, CO, Mrs. Leslie Libby of Poplar Bluff, MO, Mrs. Arthur Matson of Clinton, IA; & 2 sons, M. S. Young of Pratt & Tom Young of Shattuck. Mr. & Mrs. Si Young with their estimable family lived on the farm 3 or 4 mi.s southwest of Pratt when we came here in 1887. They were among the early settlers here. When Mr. Young was elected as register of deeds, the family moved to town & resided here until the lure of the great new country south of us called & they moved to Shattuck. This family had much to do with the settlement & growth of Pratt Co. & they number their good friends here by the thousand. Mr. Young is in the 90s & has lost his vision, but is reasonably well for a man so far advanced in yrs & we hope to continue to greet him for many more yrs. The family has the sincere sympathy of all the many friends in Pratt Co. in this sadness that comes to them in the loss of their loved one, wife & mother.
[NI062856] Enlisted in Co. C. 2nd WV Cavalry, on 15 Sep 1861 at Parkersburg, WV. (It is said in the family that Silas & his step-bro. Enoch Dye joined together.) His co. was under the command of Capt. Thomas J. Neal, while William Bowles commanded the regiment.

Menoher, who was 68 yrs old, d. of pneumonia at St. Elizabeth's Hosp. last night. Although widely known throughout the Army for his serv. with the 42nd Div., Gen. Menoher is best known for his controversy with Brig. Gen. William Mitchell which developed into one of the bitterest & most publicized feuds within the ranks of the serv. Shortly after he was made head of the Air Corps in 1919, Menoher became involved in a controversy with Mitchell, his principal assistant, the dispute centering about the adequacy & conduct of the serv. Menoher at first asked Sec. of War Weeks to remove Mitchell, but later withdrew his request at Weeks' behest. At that time, the War Sec. stated that the reasons submitted by Menoher jestified his action, but that "the Secretary believed such action would be unfortunate at this time."
After this temporary adjustment, the controversy broke out anew a short time later in a dispute between the 2 officers over the competency of the air serv. Menoher deferred action for a while & then resigned, being assigned to comand the Hawaiian Dept., where he again came into conflict with Mitchell's views. Menoher was retired in 1926. The Menoher-Mitchell clash was the 1st in the controversy that centered around Mitchell & finally led to his arraignment before an Army court martial.
