Re: Menees funeral notice & Isiah Menees roots

In Reply to: Re: Menees funeral notice by Judy Jordan of 106

Hi Judy: That was so quick, thank you so very much for responding! Here is the info I found, am including the link to the website also. I found someone who pretty much stays with my line til Andrew Jackson Menees, and I knew that he was my gg-grandfather. So James McNees is the father of both Ellen Menees and Benjamin Menees, I wonder if they changed the spelling of the last name in that generation? I have also seen it in that generation spelled Meneese/Manees/McNeese on several websites. On link I will paste below, I clicked on the name with "+" signs til I could go no further on my family tree. Will try to find out more on Isiah, the info is scarce tho I did see a McNees name that may have been a brother to Isiah(born around same time as he & from same town/place in Ireland) I cannot recall where or how I got there, I will try to backtrack thru my notes & computer history & give you that info also.

If you have any other info on McNees, or Menees, or need any from me, please dont hesitate to post or send me an email. I am confused as to how many children Isiah & Lydia had, 3 or 4?? Looks like 4, but no birthdates given for Sam, John & William. Will try to find more info on them. Thank you so much Judy, I really love that this info is still being shared.
