    Gender  Female 
    Died  Aft 1788  Marlowe homeplace, Callands, Pittsylvania, Virginia U.S.A. Find all individuals with events at this location 
    • Her father's will (Wm. Neely) will was proved in 1788; both she and Hugh Reynolds were alive at that time.
    • Several records show Mary to be born in Pittsylvania County Virginia. However, Pittsylvania county did not exist until 1767 and the earliest settlement of the area did not occur until 1738, so it is unlikely that Mary was born in the Pittsylvania County area.
    • It is possible that William Nealey (Mary's father) is the same William Neely in the 1757 tax list for Martic township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Along with Hugh Reynolds and William Divin.
