About the Neely surname

It's funny to think people are interested in my family.
I have been a Neely for nearly 72 years. Never really knew much about my family, but now I know a great deal. I am a direct descendent of the the O'Neill Kings of Ireland. It seems that Shane O'Neill and Catherine MacDonald are the parents of Rufus K O'Neill/Neely. And Rufus is my great grandfather and the man I believe is the father of Clan Neely in Ireland. It is an honor to have this information and to know my great grandfather Rufus K O'Neill/Neely started it all. However, despite what many might think, there is not much I can do with the information. There is no prestigious outcomes awaiting me, no money and no one to talk with about this finding. But there is one thing this info has given me. It's pride in knowing who I am. Don't misunderstand, I would be proud of any ancestors I found pulsing through my blood DNA. The difference now is,
" I FINALLY KNOW WHO I AM". And there is nothing more satisfying then finally knowing who you are.
Sincerely, Shirley Neely Chance.
