Joseph E. Neely
Birth: Sep., 1862
Columbus County
North Carolina, USA
Death: unknown
Allsbrook
Horry County
South Carolina, USA

Joseph E. Neely was born in September 1862 in Columbus County, North Carolina. Probably the son of Confederate soldier Edmond Neely (who died probably from wounds received at the Battle of Gaines Mill in Virginia) and Elizabeth A. Cartrette Neely, Joseph E. Neely was a farmer who married Sharlotte Ada Sarvis Neely. They had three out of five children who survived: Joseph Bowden Neely, Sr., Ada Catherine Neely Young (the twin of Oliver Neely who died in infancy), and Ruth Beatrice Neely Rogers. He and his wife are probably buried in unmarked graves in the Pleasant Meadow Baptist Church Cemetery in Horry County, South Carolina near her Sarvis relatives.

Neely is an Irish name. The Neely family crest has the motto in Gaelic, "Lamh Dearg Eirin," or "Red Hand of Ireland." Legend has it that in sailing to Ireland from Spain, it was decided that the first to touch Irish soil would be king. So the Neely (Neeley, Nealy, Nealey, etc.) who would be king cut off his left hand and threw the bloody hand onto shore in order to be first and king. In Gaelic "Neely" means "Courage."

Thanks so much to descendent Kay Evans for much of this information. Any errors, however, are mine alone. Please go to the "edit" link on this site with any corrections or additions. How, when, and where did Joseph die? Does anyone know for sure who Joseph's parents were?
