Started la the Cemetery Adjelalna- the
nut. lastltotloa for the V.temaa at
Jalarj CIsm or a Coa rplaaoaa Career la
: Qainrr McNeill is dead and
The above intelligence borne in a
reply from inquiry made by The
Amu s by wire at the State Soldiers1
home of reports to that effect were
truo. told briefly with the endorse
ment of Supt. Kirkwood, of the in
stitn ion, all that was to be said of
the end of Msj. (juincy McNeill. The
niwi reached the city last evening
that the major had passed away, but
on a visit to the son of the deceased
' this morning, it was learned
that ' no direct tidings bad been
received. Hence the dispatch to
Qolney and the answer as given,
Mr. McNeill also telegraphing for in
formation, and later receiving the
contirmation of the previous intelli
gence. Major McNeill died at the
Soldier's Home at Qnincv early Mon
day morning of heart disease. The
evening before, according to a letter
from John Williamson to relatives in
Koclc Inland, he bad been in bis ac
cnotomed spirits, joking with those
about him and smoking his pipe. He
was buried at the Home cemetery the
A Caaapleaoaa Career,
(jnincy McNeill was born in Indi
ana Nov. 21, 18'.'2. While yet quite
young he came to Rock Island
county with his father, Daniel Mc
Neill. who afterward served as judge
of the court In the counties on the
Iowa side of the river, with home at
Da Witt, Iowa. The deceased in his
early days taught school In a little
old school house which was sitnated
in the center of what is now Spencer
square, and many of our citizens of
today ran recall reminiscences of
the days when they received instruc
tion trom Schoolmaster McNeill.
Afterward be was admitted to the
bar. but never practiced to any ex
tent. From 1866 to 1860 be was cir
cuit clerk for Rock Island county,
and prior to that time as well as
years after be had served as deputy
in the oQices. In fact for 25 to 30
years he was a familiar figure
about the court house, taking a close
interest in all that happened there
and being actively identified with
Hliiicx, and was one of the most en
thusiastic, uncompromising, republi
cans of the county.
At the outbreak of the war he en
listed In the 13ih Illinois infantry,
but was afterward in the Second Illi
nois cavalry. He rose in the ranks
from lieutenant tocaptainand finally
became major of the 26th Mississippi
colored infantry. Afterward he rose
to the raok of colonel and still later
to that of brigadier-general, and be
had papers to that effect, but no one
knew it from him. He preferred to
lie known by the familiar title of
"major." He was a man of modest
demeanor, yet of wonderful eccen
tricity. He was good-hearted and
generous, yet outpken, pronounced
and independent. He stood in his
own light, and often by the peculiar
cha acter of his nature overshadowed
the brilliancy of bis own intellect.
He did not make use of the talent
that was civ en him. Those who knew
him best, however, liked him thor
oughly and alwavs spoke well of him.
Mr. M'-Neill was married in Rock
Inland in the early 5o's to Miss Mary
McLaughlin, who died in 1886. The
children who survive are: Ella, wife
of I.. II. Carey, of St. Paul; Charles,
of Clinton; Laura, wife of S. S. Irv
ing. of Minneapolis; George, whose
whereabouts aro unknown; Arthur.
of Rock Island, and Ralph, of Cleve
