I have been searching for the family and birthplace of my ancestor, Hector McNeill. Hector was born 12/12/1785. The 1850 census of Graves County Kentucky has his place of birth as North Carolina. Family lore has him coming from Scotland with an older brother as a very young lad. Hector was a farmer and of the Protestant faith. He is on the 1810 Muhlenburg County Kentucky census of 1810. There is also an Alexander McNeill on this census that may be his older brother although I cannot confirm this. I cannot find a trace of Hector in North Carolina and since I have little information a search in Scotland has yeilded nothing. Any help in cracking this brick wall is greatly appreciated.
