from a memoir by Duane E. McIntosh:

Neill, born "Old Christmas Day" (January 6) 1772 on the Isle of Skye Scotland. died 29JUN 1846, age 74 years, 5 months and 23 days. Neill is buried in the Old Scots Burying Ground near Carthage. He married and settled on Richland Creek beginning about 1799, he also purchased land on McClendon's Creek. Neil McIntosh was well known in the community and considerable additonal information concerning him can be found in Rassie Wicker's "Miscellaneous Ancient Records of Moore County, N. C." Neill's wife was Mary Jackson (b.26AUG 1782, died 29MAY 1855) age 72 years, 9 months and 3 days, her grave is next to her husbands. Mary married Neill about 1799. She was the daughter of William Jackson who lived on Little Juniper Creek about 10 miles southwest of Carthage. William Jackson had a brother Samuel who also had a daughter Mary; she married Neill's brother Alexander.

Neill and Mary had 12 children, the ages of some, I do not have. The order in which they appear does not intend to accurately indicate their order of birth. Mary was 43 years of age when she had her last child, Daniel, and "idiot". Daniel lived with his mother until she passed away.
