My grandfather was Thomas L. O'Neal born in Plantersville, AL near Selma. His father was John L. O'Neal. My grandfather was one of eight children. If I can help you in anyway let me know. I'd like to find out some information about my grandfathers siblings families, too. I know that some settled in East Texas and others went on to California.

My great-greatgrandfather was M. D. O'Neal.(1843 to 1909) I haven't been able to find anything at all on him. Is this the right time frame?
