To whom it may concern,

I am the grandson of the Neil family that resides not far from the ferry docks on Bois Blanc Island. I have only met them twice in my life time and unfortunately had a falling out with my father Bob Neil (their son) a few years back so I have lost touch with them. I have even forgotten their first names although I believe my grandfather’s name was Donald?

If you happen to know their first names and what has happened to them since around 1997 (last time I saw them) I would greatly appreciate knowing as well.

Sincerely,

Mr. Jaimie A. Brehler

A memorial service for Donald J. Neil was held Sunday August 19 at the Church of the Transfiguration. He died June 10, in Cheboygan. He was 89 years old, born in Watertown, NY. He had a twin sister, Pat. Don moved to Michigan in 1930, and retired from the Ford tractor plant in Highland Park, and moved to the Island in 1972—near the turnoff to the Firetower Rd. He served as chief of the volunteer fire department and also as harbor master. He enjoyed helping Ray Plaunt on the boat as a deck hand from time to time. His wife Francis preceded him in death. They had two sons and a daughter, 8 grandchildren, and 8 great-grandchildren.
