    Notes 
    • There seems to be a lot of confusion on the many early Vannoy lines. I have found at least three Susan/Susannah Vannoys, in addition to the Susan/Susannah Vannoy who married George McNiel on 21 Nov 1822.
      Marriage bond # 166429 shows Susan Vannoy married George McNiel on the above date. The census records from 1850, 1860, and 1870 show Susan and George together with children. A grave marker at McNiel-Faw-Riggs Cemetery in Millers Creek reads: "In Memory of Susan McNiel, Aged 80 Year And 10 M." No birth or death years were inscribed (at least none that were visible). George is buried beside her.
      This pretty much fleshes out her life since her marriage to George. However, finding her parents has proven difficult so far. Other sources for leads on her parents include:
      "Genealogy of the McNiel Clan" by Johnson J. Hayes in 1940, which shows the following:
      Page 2: "(4) George 3, b. 1803; m. Nov. 21, 1822, Susan Vannoy, dau. of Andrew Vannoy."
      Andrew Vannoy and Susannah Shepherd did have a daughter named Susannah (b. 22 Sep 1799), but according to Denise L. McNeil's write-up in "The Heritage of Wilkes Vol. II (page 496)," this Susannah did not marry until 14 Feb 1849 when she "became the second wife of Rev. Tobias Long."
      Hayes page 16: "George McNiel 3, b. May 17, 1802, d. April 21, 1878; m. Susannah Vannoy, dau. of Jesse and Mary Kilby Vannoy. Her brother, Rev. John Humphrey Vannoy married Rebecca McNiel, a sister of George 3."
      The Wilkes Heritage book (p. 498 also by Denise McNeil) lists 13 children and Susan is not among them.
      There is another a write-up in the Wilkes Heritage book by Mary Hayes (p. 502-503) which lists a child of Nathaniel and Elizabeth Ray Vannoy as Susannah Vannoy (4 Nov 1790-21 May 1873). According to Mary, this Susannah married Richard Parks and did not have children.
      This pretty much rules out all known Susan/Susannah Vannoys as being the same one who was born abt 1803 and who married George McNiel. A final lead presented in the Wilkes book (also presented by Mary Hayes on p. 500) is that "Another possible child of Daniel and Sarah [Vannoy] is Susan Vannoy (about 1803 - about 1883)." This is the lead I am currently trying to verify.
