a. Note:   BookXXIV, page 533), Samuel Neal, along with his brother James, was orphaned in about 1778, when their father, James Neal, died. In October 1778, the executors of the estate of James Neal (who were also uncles to the boys), Robert Gwinn and William Forkner, moved the Court to "bind" Samual to Lanty Graham, and James (Jr.) Neal to Robert Gwinn. The Court granted their motion and entered an order on October 21, 1778. In January 1791, the Augusta County Court (Order Book XXI, page 263 (or 377?) bound Samuel to John Bell until Samuel was 21, which was 7 February 1792, as an apprentice to learn the trade of wagon maker. In 1795, Samuel Neil and Jane Graham sold her part of her father's land to John and Rebecca Elizabeth Bell. Samuel Neil, of Scotch-Irish descent, came from Augusta County, Virginia in 1809. He bought Conrad Young's land on Peter's Creek in Nicholas County. In 1810, Edward Ryan came from Monroe County and purchased a mill site from Samuel Neil. Since he was a millwright, he built the first good mill in the county. He soon had many customers and added a saw mill to his plant. The mills later fell to the heirs of Samuel Neil. Grimes Neil, a grandson of Samuel last operated a mill on this site. On January 24, 1820 he was deeded 240 acres of land on Peters Creek about two miles below Drennen. Later he was granted several large tracts of land in that section. He was a wagon-maker and owned the second wagon used in the County. He was prominent in the affairs of the county, was commissioned Justice of the Peace for Kanawha County approximately two years before the organization of Nicholas County. [Source: Walter M.
