David Neat visits Neatsville from Oregon!
By E.H. Lepiarczyk
Recently, Mr. David Paul Neat, of Roseburg, Oregon, visited his ancestral homeland, Neatsville, in Adair County!
Mr. Neat enjoyed researching the Neat family genealogy in Adair County; and especially meeting Adair County Neat family cousins for the first time. Mr. Neat visited with his cousins, Mr. Earl Neat, Mr. Dallas Richard Neat, Mrs. Byron Wyatt Hixson, Mr. Ricky Neat, Mr. Leland Grant, and Mr. Erwin Heinrich Lepiarczyk II; all of Adair County.
Mr. David Neat also met Mrs. Dallas Neat, Mrs. Leland Grant, Mr. Kazimierz Rusek, and Mrs. Jason Corbin.
Visiting Neatsville, Neat Hollow in Little Cake, the Tabernacle Cemetery at Tabernacle near Neatsville, and his cousins' homes were all memorable for Mr. David Neat.
His Adair County cousins all enjoyed seeing him as well. All of us discovered how proud we are of our Neat family heritage.
All of the Neat family cousins who enjoyed their time together are descendants of the Adair County pioneer and founder of Neatsville, Rudolph Neat (ca. 1754-ca. 1821), and his wife, Maria Margaretha Frey Neat (1755-after 1829)!
Rudolph and Maria came to Neatsville, Adair County, from Rowan County, North Carolina during the very early 19th century at the dawning of Adair County's history.
The Rudolph Neat family is among the first families of Adair County. Neatsville was established along the Green River. Neatsville, a historic Adair County community, was once a very lively town and community. Floods over time took its toll on the Neatsville community.
The Grant's Grocery is one of the main landmarks of the Neatsville community today.
We all hope that Mr. David Neat will grace us again with another visit to see his cousins in Adair County. May God bless all members of the Rudolph Neat family always. -E.H. Lepiarczyk
