McNeill Families of Moore County NC

I have two different connections to McNeills in Moore County NC, both tracing back to a Hector McNeill. The problem is, EVERY McNeill family seems to have a son named Hector. I think these are two different people but am not certain yet. I do think the two families must be related somehow.

First Generation: the two Hector McNeills

Children of Hector McNeill and Isabella Murchison
Isabella McNeill (1790-1874) m. Isham Seawell (1789-1848)
Nancy McNeill m. John McKenzie

Isabella and Nancy's descendants are continued on the Seawell and McKenzie pages.

Child of Hector McNeill and Gensie (??)
Daniel McNeill (1792-1869) m. Rachel Smith

Second Generation

Children of Daniel McNeill and Rachel Smith
Archibald McNeill (1818-1880) m. Jennet Brewer (1820-1908)
Alexander McNeill (ca. 1823-?)

Third Generation

Children of Archibald McNeill and Jennet Brewer
Mary Ann McNeill (1842-1908) m. Isham Sanders (1834-1923)
Elizabeth McNeill (1844-1910) m. Kelly Williamson
John Robert McNeill (1847-1933) m. Elizabeth Key
Wincie Jane McNeill (1850-1892) m. Robert S. Gordon
Margaret Emberline McNeill (1853-1902) m. William Wesley Key
James McNeill (ca. 1855-?)
Lydia Martha McNeill (1856-1903) m. James Madison Williams
Celia Frances McNeill (1859-1911) m. M. Thomas Yow
Alexander McNeill (1861-1899) m. Ann Wallace (1868-1896)
Amanda Ann Maude McNeill (1865-1950) m. George W. Brown

Fourth Generation

Children of Alexander McNeill and Ann Wallace
Hattie J. McNeill (1886-1945) m. George B. Davis
Archie D. McNeill (1887-1965)
Virgil L. McNeill (1891-1892)
Nettie F. McNeill (1892-1893)
Hugh T. McNeill (1895-1946) m. Sally Sophia Henson (1898-1988)

As indicated here, Alexander and Ann both died before 1900, and their three surviving children were taken in by relatives.

In 1900, Hattie was living with Kelly and Elizabeth Williamson; Archie and Hugh are with Lydia and James Williams (see Third Generation above).

By 1910 Hattie was married to George Davis, and her brother Hugh was living with them.
