O'Neill History: Henry & Nancy Lee O'Neill, immigrants from Ulster Ireland to the United States of America.
Henry O'Neill the immigrant was born in Ireland (Ulster) the Northern Division of Ireland May 26,1753. He married Nancy Lee in Ireland. The immigrated to America and settled in Carlisle PA and stayed there a number of years. It is known they were in Rootstown in 1802 and his first purchase of land is recorded in 1807 (This is about the earliest Portage County records) so exact date is unknown. About 1810 they moved to Hocking County Ohio. Henry O'Neill died February 6, 1829 at 4:00 PM.
Nancy Lee O'Neill died January 20,1831 at 9:00 AM. Both are buried in the O'Neill cemetery (now a township cemetery) located high on a hill. There is an iron fence around the plot and there are headstones for each, Henry's bears the square and compass of the Masonic Order.
(Tombstone symbolism: Seen as an important symbol of life, hands carved into gravestones represent the deceased's relationships with other human beings and with God. Cemetery hands tend to be shown doing one of four things: blessing, clasping, pointing, and praying. A hand with the index finger pointing upward symbolizes the hope of heaven, while a hand with the index finger pointing down represents God reaching down for the soul. Hands holding a chain with a broken link symbolizes the death of a family member. The hand of God plucking a link of the chain represents God bringing a soul unto himself. A hand holding an ax means a life cut short; sudden death. A handshake represents a farewell to earthly existence and God's welcome into heaven. If the sleeves of the two hands are masculine and feminine, the handshake may symbolize holy matrimony. Two hands, with middle and ring fingers separated, are the symbol of a Jewish blessing — this signifies a Kohen, a descendant of Aaron. )
There are 9 children in this marriage:
James O'Neill born in Ireland Decemer 31, 1776, Married Ruth Donaldson
John O'Neill married Abigail Chapman
Thomas O'Neill born in PA June 10th 1792; married to Nancy Ann Lee.
The wills of Henry O'Neill and Nancy O'Neill mention the names of their children. When Henry O'Neill died there were supposed to be 7 Henry's named for him, probably grandsons or at least close relatives if not grandsons.
James O'Neill, eldest son of Henry and Nancy Lee O'Neill was born in Ireland December 31, 1776. He came to America with his parents and settled first in Portage County and in 1810 settled in Starr Township, Hocking County Ohio. The history of Hocking County states the first marriage in Starr Township was that of James O'Neill and Ruth Donaldson, howeverthis is listed under Haydensville-Green Township Starr P.O. No date of the marriage is given. Marriage records in Hocking County begin in the 1818 and Henry O'Neill's land was scattered through what is now Athens, Hocking, Washington and Vinton Counties, it is possible this marriage may be recorded in one of those counties as the present boundry are quite different.
Book 3 of Hocking County land records show Henry O'Neill deeded to his son James 80 acres ofland in 1812. James, if not a civil engineer laid out Logan, now the county seat of Hocking County. There is not a complete list of their children land records in Hocking County prove the following three children.
January 27, 1845 James O'Neill and his wife Ruth Donaldson deeded to their son James O'Neill Jr. by quit claim for love and affection 80 acres of land.
March 3, 1851 James O'Neill and his wife Ruth deeded by quit claim 40 acres of land to Phoebe O'Neill now Phoebe Lincoln as he full share of her fathers estate.
August 8, 1854 James O'Neill and his wife Ruth deeded 65 acres of land to Luthur O'Neill his full share of his fathers estate. There was no will probated in Hocking county for James O'Neill. James O'Neill died March 22, 1850 as shown by John O'Neill's bible aged 75 years 2 months and 22 days.
In 1815 James O'Neill erected a saw mill and built a dam on the O'Neill farm for power; later moved to opposite bank of the Racoon and called it Mill Run.
Refer to Hocking Valley (1885) Volume 2, pages 1039-1044 for more.
The 1840 U.S. Census lists 6 sons and2 daughers of James O'Neill
Stiles O'Neill, son of Henry and Nancy Lee O'Neill was born in Ireland came to America with his parents in 1791. It is not known whom he married, but the bible of his brother John states he was born in 780 and died when he was 35 years old, it also states his two daughters were born here, (Jane and Dorothy). Hocking County Records show a transfer of 60 acres of land from Dorothy O'Neill and Levi Turner and Jane his wife all of Akron to Martha Lee, being land owned by Henry O'Neill and by him devised to Jane and Dorothy O'Neill heirs of Stiles O'Neill.
Dorothy O'Neill born: August 29, 1812
Jane O'Neill born June 12, 1815 in the morning 9:00.
John O'Neill son of Henry and Nancy Lee O'Neill was born in Ireland March 22, 1785. He came to America with his parents about 1791. arriving in Rootstown, Oh about 1800. He married Abigail Chapman the only daughter of Nathan and Lois (Ely) Chapman who came with her parents from Bolton, Conn. about 1803-2804; their marriage is recorded vol1 page 16 of Portage County Records of marriages; this doesn't mean it is the correct date of marriage, as records of marriages didn't start until 1810. The ceremony was performed by Robert Campbell J.P. They went to Hocking County, Starr Township states teh first child born in the township was Henry O'Neills son of John and Abigail (Chapman) O'Neill. May 1812 Henry O'Neill deeded to John O'Neill 60 acres. August 1835 and November 1836 John and Abigail O'Neill sold property on HockingCounty as shown by records and it is supposed they returned to Portage County about that time. This is further brought out by Portage County Land records showing transfers to John O'Neill from 1834-1840. When they returned to Portage county they lived on the west side of Muzzy Lake where they lived until their deaths in 1869.
The John O'Neill bible is in the possession (1935) of Ray Trapp, Parma Heights Ohio and the births recorded in the bible are as follows.
Maria O'Neill born January 19, 1807 ; never married died September 27 1854
Henry O'Neill born September 29, 1810 at midnight

Marilla December 23, 1824 between daylight and sun up.
In 1828 and 1829 there was a boy and girl stillborn.
Abigail Chapman O'Neill died April 19 1869 and John O'Neill died July 31, 1869. Both are buried in lot 27 in Homeland cemetery Rootstown OH a single marker for both, weather has badly defaced the letters.
Thomas O'Neill who died February 22, 1834 at 12 in the day is buried in the old cemetery in Rootstown directly across the drive from his grandfather and grandmother Nathan and Lois Ely Chapman There is a headmark . It is not known where Maria is buried.
Charles O'Neill son of Henry and Nancy Lee O'Neill there is a Charles O'Neill buried in the O'Neill cemetery at Starr near the graves of Henry and Nancy O'Neill who was born in 1790 and died in 1846. whose wife Polly ? born 1794 died 1825 these dates are on the headstones.
Their granddaughter Katie Suradin is buried beside them and her tombstone bears the dates 1842-1898.
The Hocking County land transfers show a deed from Charles and Polly O'Neill of Athens County dates August 15, 1817 transferring property in StarrTownship to Thomas Bradford. Charles and Polly O'Neill were shown in the census 1820 were in Athens County had 2 sons adn 3 daughters. There are several graves without stones on the same lot with Charles and Polly O'Neill in the O'Neill cemetery at Starr.
Martha O'Neill daughter of Henry and Nancy O'Neill was born October 8, 1800 died August 15 1866 aged 65 years 10 months and 5 days. as shown on her tombstone the O'Neill cemetery. at Starr. Martha married George Lee May 24, 1819 as shown by Hocking County Records. It is not known for sure of their children, but a visit to the O'Neill cemetery at Starr in July 1969 we found the graves of Henry and Nancy Lee O'Neill in the family plot (enclosed with a cast iron fence) and in a row beside them Martha Lee wife of George Lee died August 15, 1866 as above noted and Julia a Lee 1831-1914
Nancy Lee March 11, 1823 - March 15 1901 aged 78 years 4 days
Samuel Lee May 17, 1822 - July 11 1892 70 years 1 month 23 days
Ross Lee June 24, 1826-September 7 1901 aged 75 years 2 months and 13 days.
It seems logical these are the children of George and Martha O'Neill Lee.
Nancy O'Neill presumed to be the daughter of Henry and Nancy O'Neill as mentioned in will was married to Joseph Campbell of Hocking county records. The date of the marriage Nov. 2, 1845 as this seems to be a later date than the daughter of the above named parents would probably marry as evidenced by the marriages of their other children, there is a possibility this Nancy is a granddaughter rather than a daughter of Henry and Nancy O'Neill; if so there is no record of their daughter Nancy.
Margaret O'Neill daughter of Henry and Nancy Lee O'Neill born ? Married Jesse Donnelly August 3, 1823 of Hocking Co. Records. They had but one child "Wash" Donnelly who went to live with the Indians, it is thought by choice and nothing more is known of his life or of this family.
Jane O'Neill daughter of Henry and Nancy Lee O'Neill born married Nimrod Hathaway February 15, 1821. Jane Hathaway died prior to 1828.
Thomas O'Neill son of Henry and Nancy Lee O'Neill was born in PA Carlisle Vincinity June 10, 1792 married Nancy Ann Lee born ? 1817. Nancy Ann Lee was the daughter of James Lee who came to Vinton County in 1816 and was born September 10 1794 and it may be assumed they were married in Vinton County but no search has been made in that county.

My father died when I was very young leaving my mother to raise 6 children. Three years later she married a man with 7 children of his own. When the war came along, two of his boys and my two brothers went into the army. My mother saw to it that we received our religious upbringing early. She was a Sunday School teacher and we attended Sunday School and church and she made sure that we all graduated. After I graduated from Tyler County High in 1945, I joined the Army and served on Wake Island, Corregidor and Manila in the Phillipines for two years. Returning home from the service there was no employment to be found in WV, my brother, living in Ravenna, and attending Kent State encouraged me to come to Ohio to find a job. This I did, and in 1947 I met Dorothy at the Armory Skating Rink in Ravenna and we married in March 1949. After graduating from National Radio & Electronics, I operated my own store, Bob's Radio and TV for 10 years, 2 years in Ravenna and 8 years from the back of our garage at our home. I also attended Akron University and Kent State. Took some Dale Carnegie courses and got a Real Estate License and worked as a salesman for Sitko Realty, B. Jennings Realty, June Harvey Realty, Combs & Company Realty and GoldFire Realty. During this same time, I was employed by Lamson & Sessions in Kent for 19 years, then I went to Zagar, Inc., in Cleveland for 16 years working as a Marketing Manager. I also served as the Zoning Inspector for the Village of Garrettsville, We have one daughter, Dianne Bradfield (Ben Ciancio), who lives in Ravenna and recently retired from Kent State University. I am a past member of the Garrettsville Chamber of Commerce, the Hiram-Garrettsville Rotary Club, Garrettsville Jaycees and was president of the Squarenaders in 1962-63. A member of the Elks in Ravenna, VFW, Masonic Lodge #246 Garrettsville, Society of Manufacturing Engineers in Cleveland, Akron Board of Realtors, the United Methodist Church, and the Parade Master in Garrettsville for 10 years. My mother died of cancer in 1976 and was a great inspiration in my life. My beloved wife Dorothy, my brothers, Bill and Ralph, my sisters JoAnn Tarman, Evelyn Andrews and Patty Hoffstetter and son-in-law Gary Bradfield all proceeded me in death. I loved being an usher at church where I got to meet, greet and serve the people, also teaching young boys to become Acolytes and get involved in the church. I always enjoyed loving, sharing, caring and helping other people, which was always a goal I had set for myself in my life. After my retirement I enjoyed delivering my homemade peanut butter cookies, homemade fudge, German chocolate cake, and banana nut bread to family and friends. Please join my beloved daughter Dianne at Calling hours from 4-8 PM on Tuesday, April 23, 2013 at Mallory-DeHaven-Carlson Funeral Home & Cremation Services, 8382 Center St., Garrettsville, OH 44231, with a Masonic Service at 5:30PM.
