No more information available.
( MY NOTE: Fielder/Fielding Poston married a Jennings, and Miles Jennings married Liney Neal in Tazewell Va. And they moved to Scott County the same year that Esther Jane Neal Allen did. Their first daughter was born there then they left for Harrison Co. MO. Samuel F. Neal had also moved to Harrison Co. MO and Lineyâ€™s daughter buried 2 infants in his family cemetery. Miles died and Liney remarried a Henry Buzzard. LDS has her death date as 1880 and her parents as CALVIN NEAL and NANCY JOHNSON. ) ( ALSO a booklet about â€œCrackers Neck Historyâ€ has an interview with a Wellâ€™s man who stated that Hezekiah P. â€œ Kierâ€ Neal was raised in BURKS GARDEN. This manâ€™s Aunt Catherine Wellâ€™s had 4 children by Hez. P. while he was married to Elizabeth Robinette.)
