This is the family chart of Mary Ann Leitch, daughter of James Leitch and Jean Frue Neal (aka Jean Frew) of Saltcoats Scotland.  She emigrated with the family to Canada, where she met and married Robert Neil.  They emigrated to the United States to Iowa, the Davenport area.  I was able to trace them not badly from the territorial censuses on ancestry.  I was also able to determine that her younger sister Jean also emigrated with them to the US.  Mary’s mother died there on a visit to the family in 1868.

 

Of course if any one can furnish me with more information about their lives, I would be very grateful.  I would love to know why they moved to the US, and other information.  So I am putting out there what I know and leaving it in the hands of fate.
