My place in all of this linage is where we arrive. I am related to all of this history on my fathers side. My Great-grandfather made the long journey from Dublin, Ireland in 1937. He made his way to North Carolina but then decided Missouri sounded like a great place to settle down. He later decided to join in World War II on the American side and drove a tank in the war. A funny story of why our name is spelled differently than it was in Ireland is that when going through customs the person wrote the name down wrong. He left Ireland as Todd O'Neill, and entered the United States as Todd O'Neal. Thus changing my spelling.
