LAND GRANT TO DANIEL O'NEAL
The grant is on a printed form with information filled in by hand, granting land to
Daniel O'NEAL. The form is signed by Gov. Patrick HENRY. The top part and one side
of the form have been broken off, thus the description and location of the land is limited.
The grant is dated 2 December 1785.
DANIEL O'NEAL
The 1782 tax list for Bedford County, Virginia, includes a Daniel O'NEAL. Some
Land Grants in Virginia lists a grant of 300 acres to a Daniel O'NEAL, 2 December
1785, in Bedford County.
The land tax records beginning with 1787 list a Daniel NEIL, rather than
O'NEAL. The alterations list for 1785 shows a 300–acre grant to Daniel NEIL. The
earlier spelling continues until the listing of the estate of Daniel NEIL in 1799. The
index to Bedford County wills records the inventory and appraisement of the estate of a
Daniel NEAL in 1800. His heirs were his widow, Mary, along with Zephaniah and
Zachariah NEAL. In 1807, there is the inventory and appraisement for the estate of Mary
NEAL.
The Bedford County marriage bonds register lists Daniel NEAL to Polly
BOOTHE, 17 August 1790.
