Hi there - since my post I have linked with family members - Evert Roy was my Grandfather and I have since learned his parents Mina Kyer and Edward O'Neil. His sisters were Ethel, Lillian and Myrtle (died young) bros. Loyd and Lorne. As well I have learned that Edward Henry O'Neil's parents were Margaret Phillips and Patrick O'Neil - Patrick's parents were Patrick Sr. and Jane Price. This family settled in the Cornwall areas and several moved back and forth from the States - they emmigrated from Ireland during the famine in our about 1847-48 thereabouts. It does not appear we have the same family line directly, however, the more I learn the more I find connections. If you have an O'Neil line I would be keen on seeing it and checking if it links somehow. I do appreciate you taking the time to respond - every bit and piece really helps untangle the family lines - there were only a few original O'Neil's to Canada so the US links are very important given the movement with work and learning trades etc. Also, when the names repeat - it is often a link as the same family first names were often used. If you have more information - let me know directly if you have time - I maintain a second data base of links - not yet tied into my main family but developing and O'Neil database for others as well.
Thanks again - M
