    Notes 

    • (1) O'Neall, John Belton, The Annals of Newberry, Newberry, SC: Aull & Houseal, 1892, p. 279:

      The family, with the exception of James and George, removed about 1766 to South Carolina. . . .

      William O'Neall was a Friend; when he joined that body of religionists is not known; his wife also belonged to the same; his brother, Hugh, inclined the same way; so did his wife and the entire Parkins family. In the revolution neither of these brothers took any part, except to bury the dead, heal the wounded, and do good wherever they could.
