      NEILL

      John Neill (b. 1710 c.) and his brother Lewis Neill (b. 1715 c.) were in Orange County, Virginia by 4 November 1735 when James Wood surveyed a 640-acre tract of land for them. This tract, part of Jost Hite's grant land, was located on the Great Pond Branch of Opequon Creek. John and Lewis divided this land, Lewis receiving the north section and John and his children the southern part, by Fairfax grants. The tract is on the east side of Opequon Creek with Virginia Highway 7 running through the center. Dry Marsh Run crosses the north end and Clarke County Highway 635 cuts across the center of the land, from north to south. . . .

      On 2 October 1738, John and Lewis purchased 150 acres situated on both sides of Opequon Creek (Clarke and Frederick County, Virginia) from Rees Smith. The land was approximately ½ mile south of a new road (Virginia Highway 761) that connected with Jost Hite's Road (Summit Point). . . .

      John Neill was deceased by 15 November 1750 when his will (dated 2 October 1750) was proved in Frederick County Court. Lewis Neill (brother or son) and Isaac Hollingsworth were named executors. His wife Anne is mentioned, though she may have been his second wife.

      John Neill (b. 1710 c.) and his brother Lewis controlled or owned outright approximately 5,800 acres of land in present-day Clarke County, Virginia. Their land began at Clarke County, Virginia Highway 761 on the north and ran four miles south along the Opequon Creek to about one mile south of Virginia Highway 7. From Opequon Creek, it extended east about two miles to Clarke County, Virginia Highway 660, 674, 656 and 659. Only John Neill's (b. 1751) tracts of 300 acres and 311 acres were east of these roads.
