Arrah Neil probably died before 1900, the other seven children of Ben and Lucy James are on 1900 census.

is spelling Arron or Arrah? use Arrah Neil per Doris letter 1971.

1900 census listed 7 of 8 children. I assume that Arrah Neil died before 1900 census was taken.

Doris Mullholland letters state Arrah is buried on Simmons farm.
