1796 NC died between 1860-1866 Barbour Co AL burial site for Neill and Sarah not found

Known Children:
1. Martha Ann McKeller born 26 June 1836 NC died 20 Dec 1903 AL first 
marriage 25 Jan 1854 to James Seagers in Barbour County AL [I don't know what 
happened to James. Martha was living back at home with her parents in the 1860 
census.] second marriage 15 May 1861 to Stephen S Mooneyham in Barbour County AL, 
Stephen born 1833 GA died 26 Mar 1911 AL   Martha and Stephen are buried Salem

2. John A McKeller born 19 Dec 1839 AL died 31 Dec 1904 AL married 12 April 
1868 Barbour Co AL to Leacy Thomas born 6 April 1835 AL died 5 Dec 1908 AL John

Notes on Neill McKeller and Sarah McInnis: Most marriages were recorded in 
the county where the bride lived. So Sarah was could have been from Richmond Co. 
NC. Neill may have been from there also. They may have lived in the 
Ellerbe-Norman area. This is the area where the Mt. Carmel Presbyterian Church is 
located. This is also the area where the two McInnis sisters lived, who married 
Sarah's brothers, John B. and Hector McInnis. If the dates of birth are close to 
being correct, then Neill and Sarah were around 30 yrs. old when they married. 
There are three known children. According to the 1840 Barbour Co. AL census 
there was another male between the age of 10-15 years. He was not with the 
family in the 1850 census. He could have been a son, who either died or moved 
away. Martha was born 10 years after Neill and Sarah were married. If the other 
male was a son he was born from 1 to 4 years after the marriage. There would be 
a span of about 8 tears between his and Martha's birth. There is a good 
possibility there were more children. Since Martha Ann McKeller was born in NC in 
1836 and John A. McKeller was born in AL in 1839, the family must have moved to 
AL from NC about 1837 or 1838. The location of the first land bought by Neill 
McKeller in Barbour Co. Al. was located along Little Judy Creek.

Notes on Sarah McInnis:
Found her maiden name in the will of her brother, John B. McInnis, Barbour Co 
AL, he named a sister Sarah McKellar from Bar. Co AL, as one of his heirs, 
and according to the census records, there was only one Sarah McKeller in Bar 
Co., his other heirs were: sister-Effy Dawkins, sister-- Nancy McLean, 
sister-in-law Jane McInnis, niece-- Jane Danford [she inherited land known as Frank 
Miles place], niece-Matilda Currie [he left her the remainder of his estate, 
because she had taken care of him since his wife died] 

Notes on possible child of Neill and Sarah: [I have not been able to verify 
for myself that Malinda Jane was a McKeller and no proof if she was a daughter 
of Neill and Sarah] Genealogy sources I have had contact with say that Malinda 
Jane Danford wife of Joseph Danford was Malinda Jane McKeller. Malinda Jane 
and Joseph are buried at Antioch Cemetery Barbour Co AL. Tombstone records and 
census records would indicate that Malinda was born about 1820 in NC and died 
3 Nov 1891 Barbour County AL and that Joseph was born 15 Jan 1813 NC died June 
1896 Barbour County AL.
