Meet Augusta S. White McNeely

I don't know much about Augusta yet.

I finally have proof that she was the third wife of my ancestor William V. McNeely

I know that she was born in November of 1845 in Onondaga County, New York to Truman and Phebe Harris White.

I know that in every census from her first (1850) to 1880 she was living there with her parents and her brother Jonas.

What I don't know is how she ended up in Christian County, Missouri to marry W.V. McNeely on Christmas Day 1889.

William died in 1899 and in 1900 there she is in Christian County, Augusta S. McNeely, widow, with her brother Jonas T. White.

Somehow I think that's a story I'd like to know.
