James McNeely Papers, PC.1906

Abstract

James McNeely (circa 1813-1887) was born in the portion of Burke County that by 1842 had become part of McDowell County. In 1847 a bond was submitted on behalf of McNeely as a McDowell County constable. McNeely also operated a tavern and a general merchandise store in Turkey Cove. In 1855 he married Catherine McCall (1836-1925).
Papers include writs of execution, notes of debt, receipts, and summonses from McNeely's service as constable of McDowell County during the late 1840s. There are also business papers, including accounts and correspondence, representing his work from 1845, possibly as a tavern owner, then in partnership with J. Young in the general merchandise concern of Young and McNeely, Turkey Hamlet, McDowell County, around 1855.

Collection Overview

Papers include writs of execution, notes of debt, receipts, and summonses from McNeely's service as constable of McDowell County during the late 1840s. There are also business papers, including accounts and correspondence, representing his work from 1845, possibly as a tavern owner, then in partnership with J. Young in the general merchandise concern of Young and McNeely, Turkey Hamlet, McDowell County, around 1855. Since this collection contains both personal, business, and county record copies, the many writs of execution may be to some degree duplicative of the county record copy.

These papers, ca. 1847-1873, related to McNeely, a McDowell County constable and consist principally of writs of execution.


Note: This collection is partially arranged: materials may not have been ordered, processed, and described beyond their original condition.

Arrangement Note

This collection is organized by record type and is generally in chronological order. The writs and summons are arranged in bundles, in their original order as maintained by McNeely and placed in alphabetical order by the first letter of the surname.

Two series: Personal Business Papers; Constable Records
