      Neal Family Reunion

      Palm Sunday of 2011, April 17, was chosen for the Neal Family reunion, for descendants and friends of the late Robert Lee Neal, Sr. (1885-1969) and Amy Wall Garrett Neal (1889-1992). The old home is located in the Ashland neighborhood, in Caswell County, North Carolina, on the East side of Highway 150, just uphill from Country Line Creek. This home place is now owned by the younger daughter of Robert Lee Neal, Sr., and Amy Wall Garrett Neal, Lelia Jones Neal Essic of Davie County, North Carolina. Friends and Neal kin arrived about noon from as far away as Mexico, Texas, West Virginia, and Virginia, and from many places in North Carolina. They were greeted by the hostess, Lelia Jones Neal Essic. Many admired the newly mown lawns and the lovely old house. Many appreciated the hard work of her nephew, Robert Allen Neal, and his friends from Yanceyville, Mrs. Jane Slade and her daughter, Mrs. Jane Bigelow. They did a great job of decorating the tables and house with flowers from Amy Wall Garrett Neal’s old flower gardens.

      After a lot of "cousins kissing cousins," and aunts and uncles and friends, the food from the baskets was spread on the dining table, and other available places. The families served up the delicious meats, salads, vegetables, and desserts and enjoyed the results of the talents of the family cooks. Grown-ups and children alike enjoyed the cute little wind-up rabbits and chicks on the tables provide by Lelia. After lunch, the children were entertained with an Easter egg hunt. They went home enjoying the treats in the big plastic eggs. The older folks enjoyed the eating and visiting, and many were reminded of the Neal Cemetery Fund, which is managed by Robert Allen Neal, who also cares for the cemetery along with his grandfather, Robert Lee Neal Jr.

      On a historical note, this old plantation was owned by old John Graves (1715-1792), of near Yanceyville, who deeded it to his youngest son, General Azariah Graves (1798-1850), who married Elizabeth Williams (1773-1841), a daughter of Col. John Williams (1745-1799). The house in which Robert Lee Neal, Sr., and Amy Wall Garrett Neal lived was the old Graves and Williams store-house, remodeled by an earlier Neal family and finally sold to Mr. Robert Lee Neal and Amy Wall Garrett Neal around 1913. Mr. and Mrs. Neal tried to keep the old building as near like a home of the earlier years would appear, saving the huge beams overhead in the living room, and the old fireplace. They later built rooms upstairs for the boys, and built a dining room on the north side of the kitchen. A bedroom was also added on the south side of the living room. The house is still in good shape, with new heating and wiring added. -Anne Neal
