“Hi -- I just came across your family tree relating to Benjamin Rivet (https://www.bigstepslittlesteps.com/family_tree/person/120006821720)... and I think we may be related.
I descend from Joseph Rivet (1839/40 - 1911) who I believe to be an older brother of your relation, Aurelie ... based on this entry in the 1871 Canadian Census: https://www.ancestry.com/imageviewer/collections/1578/images/4395461_00504 (If you're not an Ancestry subscriber, I can send you a screenshot.)
I'd love to discuss the possibility of sharing information. My email address is mikeross2 -at- prodigy -dot- net.
I found John Alexander Neal on my ancestry.com profile (also took the DNA test), and my whole family is from Arkansas.....the information on ancestry (multiple sources) show that John Alexander Neal was also born in Fulton, Arkansas....not in North Carolina. May I ask your sources for what you have found about him? From my research (extensive) on ancestry.com, John Alexander Neal was my Great-Great-Great grandfather.....his son (Sam Lane Neal) fathered a daughter named Ellen Neal....who mothered a son named Ira Jones, who fathered my Grandmother. Hope all is well!
“I've been following you since I found you through a DS hashtag, when Emerson was still a 'bump' in your Instagram pics :-) Your post-surgery pic today gave me flashbacks to my daughter's avsd repair, the sleepless nights, learning to put in an ng tube ... and just today she 'graduated' from her pediatric cardiologist -- she'll be 18 in May. These are long days (and nights) but they'll fly by. Just wanted to send some love from a complete stranger, but someone who's been there.”— Elizabeth Mitchell
