But one thing lead to another. Things got better because our 'new' relative, Sarah Prinslow Frempong also was researching the surname Neely. Neely is a surname that is is my family tree. Back around 1805, Elizabeth Neely, my 3rd great-grandmother married George Berlin. I visited George and Elizabeth's son, Jeremiah Berlin's gravestone last summer. Rick Platt and I hiked around Allegheny Cemetery looking for the grave of George's father and another son, Jesse. Back in August I wrote several blog entries about this part of the family. See Nicholas Berlin and Anna Marie I hadn't found much about the Neely family but part of the problem is the spelling of Neely. So today while goggling 'John Paul Neely' I spotted an entry that lead me to a Findagrave Memorial for Him. Now I know why I hadn't found it before. First the picture has not been online all that long and I had not researched the Neely name in the last year. The other reason was the spelling. I had been aware that Neely was sometime spelled Neleigh. Now I have several new spelling to look for. Neely had morphed into Naly
NEELY; NELEIGH; NELIGH; NELICH: NALY; and who knows what else will open the door.
