    Note (from Steve O'Neal): John O'Neal is listed here as a father of Chesley O'Neal (and son of this unknown individual) based upon the entries for John and Chesley O'Neal in the 1850 Fairfield, SC Census.

    Later, after listing John as a brother, I have found research info of researcher Dennis J O'Neal, who suspects Chesley's father may be a John O'Neal. The remaining brothers and sisters (other than John) are listed here as siblings of Chesley O'Neal purely based upon Dennis J O'Neals conclusions. More info from Dennis is at:

    This individual seems likely to be a brother of the Abner O'Neal listed elsewhere in this file at:

    Researcher Darlene Wagner thinks John O'Neal is the name of Chesley O'Neals father. Some of the info based upon the conclusions of a professional genealogist that "cousin Sheila" of Ventura, CA had hired (Brent Holcombe)

    Story in this family: Came to America at a young age.

    ** 5 **
    An Axom O'Neal, reportedly born in IRELAND, and died in Darlington, SC, may be related to this family

    You can see info on this Axom O'Neal at:

    In a conversation with Clifton O'Neal Aug. 22, 1982, he stated that he firmly believes this Bible page to be accurate. He remembered his Uncle Alfred saying that 2 brothers followed Chesley over from Ireland.
    (Again, this could have been Chesley's father and 2 uncles).

    [Steve O'Neal Note: could one of the two uncles have been Abner O'Neal found in 1800 in SC Census ?]
