Deep within the hills in Neel, Ohio lies an abandoned country market and the remains of a covered span that was washed away in 1997.

william james [jim] my father william jennings was born there . he ,my granfather,john d and ggf middleton are buried at nearby Hickory ridge cemetary. our son coley now lives in cincy , im a lifelong arkansan.
My grandfather is from nearby Decatur and the generations before him settled the area and the namesake stuck because of the post office. Very few of the Neel family live in the area.
My GM was a Neel from this lineage. They settled in Nebraska.
Area was settled in by Samuel Neel in the early 1800’s. His family established a post office, A. E. Neel (Son) was a postmaster. His brother Middleton was my GGGF. Most of this family stayed in the area or moved to Iowa
My last name is Neel I wonder if one of my family founded the town.
Where exactly is this located? I'm from the Cleveland area of Ohio and never heard of Neel.
It is in Brown County on the southern fringes of Ohio along SR 763.
