John Corlett McNeil

Captain of the company. An excerpt from a news report stated: " . . . . R. K. Homer, E. R. Young and J. C. Naile are expected ere long, each with trains, Mr. Naile having in his company eight or ten families of emigrants." (Deseret News, 12 Oct. 1859, 252) It is possible that "J. C. Naile" in this report is John McNeil, although the news report of the number of people in the company doesn't correspond with the information in the narratives. Evidence that he came in 1859 is confirmed in information found in Church financial records.
