Irish McNeelis - Neelis Clan

My greatgrandfather John Neelis was born in Ireland. His parents are Joseph Neelis and Bridget Kenney. He married Rebecca Smith, daughter of James Smith and Bridget Campbell. John and Rebecca had 10 children: Ann, Mary, Sarah, Catherine, Elizabeth, Margaret, Joseph, Rosanna, James, John. The first two children and possibly first four were born in Ireland and came with their parents to Ontario, Canada in about 1850 where the rest of the children were born. James Neelis is my grandfather. Some of the family emigrated to the USA between 1886 and 1890. I have much more information regarding this family and if these names connect with your family search please post a reply and if you want to be contacted via e-mail.

James Neelis was born in Canada on 30 Oct 1860 - the son of John Neelis and Rebecca Smith. John Neelis was born abt.1808 of Joseph Neelis and Bridget Kenney. Rebecca Smith was born abt. 1820 of James Smith and Bridget Campbell. John and Rebecca emigrated from Ireland about 1847. Two children Ann and Mary were born in Ireland. The other children are: Sarah, Catherine, Elizabeth,Margaret, Joseph, Rosanna, James and John.
I don't know if there is a clan in Ireland or not. All the information I have from Ireland states the surname as Neelis; however, the original Gaelic name is probably different.
Aloysius is Lawrence's brother - both sons of James Neelis, my grandfather. David Neelis is Aloysius son and would be about age 60.
James Neelis married Nora(Elnora) Tessier dit LaVigne and they had 8 children - Lawrence, Mary, William, Edward, Leo, Louise, Aloysius and Margaret. William died in infancy.

MY NAME IS JOHN ANTHONY NEELIS JR. MY FATHER OF COURSE IS JOHN A. NEELIS SR. HIS FATHER WAS JOHN NEELIS TOO, ALTHOUGH I BELIEVE HIS MIDDLE NAME WAS MATHEW. HE MARRIED ANN MC ADOW. MY ANCESTORS COME FROM COUTY MAYO AND CORK. I KNOW MY WE ARE RELATED TO CORCORANS AND SCANLONS. I HAVE ATTEMPTED IN THE PAST TO LOCATE A "COAT OF ARMS" BUT I DON'T THINK IT IS CORRECT. MY GRANDMOTHER TOLD ME WE WERE RELATED TO IRISH KINGS AND WHEN I WAS YOUNG SHE SENT ME LETTERS CALLING ME "MASTER JOHNATHAN, BUT MY FATHER TOLD ME WE WERE PEASANTS(OF COURSE YE OLD IRISH HUMOR). THERE SEEMS TO BE A GAP MISSING SOMEWHERE. ANYWAY. I HOPE THAT HELPS. THERE SEEMS TO BE ALOT OF JOHN NEELIS S IN NEW YORK. SOME NAMED JOHN, AND SOME WITH MY MIDDLE NAME AS WELL. FOR SOME REASON THEY SEEMED TO WANT TO PRESERVE THE JOHN ANTHONY NEELIS NAME.
