Michael NEELIN and Jane MONTGOMERY
County Cavan, Ireland to Goulbourn Township, Ontario, Canada

New July 27, 2015:

Good evening Allan. 

My name is Bill NEELIN and I am doing some family research on the NEELIN family, originally from
Swanlinbar / County Cavan Ireland who emigrated to the Munster Hamlet, Goulbourn Township area of Ontario.  
I see from the ACTON family tree that a John ACTON married a Sarah NEELIN in Feb 1840.

Would you happen to have any more information on Sarah NEELIN / ACTON?.

I have a Sarah Jane NEELIN born 1822

Father: Michael B 1781 County Cavan D 23 March 1877 Ottawa

Mother: MONTGOMERY Jane B 1782 County Cavan D 09 Feb 1879 Carleton County, Ontario.

Many thanks for any assistance.

Good morning, Bill:
  
Thanks for your e-mail regarding your early Neelin family in Goulbourn Township.
  
I have a record of Michael Neelin and his wife Jane Montgomery and three of their children who were born between 
1814 and 1824 but no Sarah Neelin born in 1822, although she would fit in with this family.

There are many pioneer families connected to the Neelins and I expect that your Sarah Neelin belongs to 
the above family. I'll let you know if I can find more information.
 
I'd like to start a new web page on our site for the family of Michael Neelin and Jane Montgomery and 
would add your e-mail to it in hopes that we may receive information from other researchers. Is this OK 
with you? Please let me know.
 
A Mr. Jim Neelin belongs to the Ottawa Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society here. Do you know him? 
He has done a lot of work for them over the years. My wife, Grace Lewis, is the volunteer librarian for this group 
and Jim Neelin donated quite a few books to the library about a year ago.
 
Thanks again for this,

Thanks Allan: 

I will add all of that information to the family tree that I have started on the net www.neelin.tribalpages.com. 
Note to researchers: You should check out Bill's Neelin web site for more details and information.

I believe I have found some other information on Sarah NEELIN (1822-1893) daughter of William NEELIN and Mary MOFFETT.

It can become quite confusing when there are so many first names that are the same along the different family lines.

You can certainly add my email to to any list in the hopes of finding more information.

I have met Laura Neelin and she knows much of the Merrickville NEELINS’ lineage.  
Sadly my uncle Jim Neelin who started our branch and got me interested has passed away.
