Seeking help with this mystery family. Anything will be appreciated, no matter how small. A tragedy of some sort struck them hard in 1842 killing both parents. One infant survivor, Joseph R. McNeely, in 1846 was indentured to his uncle, John M. Barnett, in Spencer County, Indiana, “to learn the art and mystery of farming until 16 Jan 1855 when 21.” Joseph obviously rejected this plan and headed for Ohio County where in 1850 his swearing got him in hot water with the elders of Walton’s Creek Baptist Church. (See Record of Walton’s Creek Baptist Church, page 55.) Again, any help will be appreciated. Thanks.
