According to the Fields of Honor website, Neil W. Mc Intrye was born in 1926 in Wiiliston, Williams County, North Dakota, to Peter and Odeilee Mc Intyre.  He was a private in the 634th Tank Destroyer Battalion. "Pvt Neil W. 'Mc Tyre' enlisted at Fort Snelling, Minnesota on 20 July 1944. He attended high school for 3 years."  He died on 8 April 1945.(http://www.fieldsofhonor-database.com/index.php/american-war-cemetery-margraten-m/64165-mc-intyre-neil-w  Source: Raf Dyckmans, www.abmc.gov, www.wwiimemorial.com, www.archives.gov - WWII Enlistment Record, www.ancestry.com - 1940 Census, http://tankdestroyer.net - After Action Report 634th TDB)

In 1930, he lived at 21 Main Street in Williston with his parents.  He had a brother John, born about 1929.  Father Peter N., a 55 year old insurance agent, was born in New York, and Peter's parents were also born in NY.  Odelia, 45, was born in Indiana, as were her parents.  Peter was first married when he was 30, and Odelia was first married when she was 40.("United States Census, 1930," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.3.1/TH-1951-22835-17963-48?cc=1810731 : accessed 15 March 2016), North Dakota > Williams > Williston > ED 63 > image 10 of 24; citing NARA microfilm publication T626 (Washington D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, 2002).  ED 63, Sheet 5B, Household 123, Line 89.)  Given the age when first married, it is probably that peter was married before he married Odelia.  Brother John is not shown on the 1940 US Census, where the name is shown as McIntyre, but the rest of the information is the consistent.("United States Census, 1940," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:KMSM-FDZ : accessed 15 March 2016), Peter N Mcintyre, Ward 1, Williston, Williston City, Williams, North Dakota, United States; citing ED 53-64A, sheet 2A, family 44, NARA digital publication T627 (Washington, D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, 2012), roll 3018.)

When he registered for the World War 1 Draft at Williston, ND, Peter McIntyre said he was 44 years old, born on 26 Oct 1874.  He was a barber and lived 500 6th Ave. W, Williston.  His nearest relative was Earl Neil McIntyre.("United States World War I Draft Registration Cards, 1917-1918," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:K6ZG-NYZ : accessed 15 March 2016), Peter Mcintyre, 1917-1918; citing Williams County, North Dakota, United States, NARA microfilm publication M1509 (Washington D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, n.d.); FHL microfilm 1,819,502.)
