Research Notes

Find a Grave for John Neal. Jr.[1]:

"His Second Wife was Susan Hullett Eaker. She was Married to James Eaker who passed away in 1852.

They had a Daughter, Mary Jane Eaker.

Her Parents were Samuel Hullett and Catherine Eaker Hullett. She and John Neal,Jr were Married after the death of Susannah Mauney Neal in 1854." Could this be? Is she a Neal too?
