Note: Elaine C. Neal wrote: nealec@erols.com Dear John, Our Neals were originally oneals, and my husband's family descends from the same Joseph (John) Owneill that you do, so I guess you and my husband are distant cousins! I would love to prove the connection into the line. I can prove that Basil Oneal, our revolutionary war soldier, was born in Prince George's Co. Md. in 1758 and that he had a brother Richard who had a son Peter Lamar Oneal. This line continues to use Peter Lamar Oneal in the family. Our line from Basil uses the name Richard for the descending males. Our family tradition says that Basil, Richard, and others are children of Peter Oneal.

Note: A Peter O'Niel shows up in 1758 tax lists for Trinity Parish Upper Hundred, Charles County, Maryland. He was evidently passing through because he does not show on tax list prior, or after 1758. Briscoes also appear in this tax list and may have migrated with Peter. If indeed Peter had a son Basil, who married Milly Briscoe, this would reinforce the theory that they migrated together.

Research Notes: According to Elaine Neal: "Our neals were originally oneals, and my husband's family descends from the same Jo Owneill that you do, so I guess you and my husband are distant cousins! I can prove that Basil Oneal, our revolutionary war soldier, was born in Prince George's Co. Md. in 1758 and that he had a brother Richard who had a son Peter Lamar Oneal. This line continues to use Peter Lamar Oneal in the family. Our line from Basil uses the name Richard for the descending males. Our family tradition says that Basil, Richard, and others are children of Peter Oneal. Basil is described as an orphan in the family traditon, meaning his father died shortly after his birth."

If this is correct our line to Basil would look like this....... Jo Owneill + Unknown Lamare

i. Peter O'Neale
+ Ann Unknown
i: Peter Lamare O'Neale
+ Unknown Spouse
i. Basil O'Neale
+ Eleanor Millie Briscoe
ii. Richard O'Neale
+ Unknown Spouse
i. Peter Lamar O'Neale

On Rootsweb I found the following:
Dr. John Briscoe (abt 1724-1791) married 1746 Ann Wood was the son of probably Edward Briscoe & Susannah Gerard (SLYE).
Dr. John Briscoe & Ann Wood had: Dr. Ralph 1747-1831; Maybe George; Dr. Truman 1758-1801; Nancy 1760-?; MaybeBenjamin; Maybe William; Eleanor "Milly" (Briscoe) O'Neal;

Now here are some interesting observations:
John Briscoe, Ann Wood, Edward Briscoe, Susannah Gerard (Slye) and our Peter O'Neale all lived in Saint Marry's County, Maryland in the early 1720's.
In the mid 1700's John Briscoe moved to Prince George's County, Virginia. He had his daughter Eleanor Milly there. Peter Lamare O'Neale also moved to Prince George's County Virginia, and had a son Basil there. Eleanor Milly Briscoe and Basil O'Neale were married in Henry County, Virginia.on 1/17/1783.
