  • Notes 
    • Oscar B. Robbins book, pg 18; his informant has said that Susan had died 20 Jul 1869, but the 1880 census proves this is an error. Susan and their son are living with her parents in the 1880 census.

      The following note and obituary received Sep 2009 from Anthony L. Troha, Ph.D. of the Canal Society of New Jersey:
      I found the obituary for Susan Louisa Neff née Wood, who preceded her mother in death. The original can be found at
      http://www.rtlibrary.org/iron_era/1897/1897-07-23.pdf , but I have transcribed this for you:

      Obituary of Mrs. Susan Louisa Neff née Wood
      from "The Iron Era" of Friday, July 23, 1897 (Volume XXVII, Number 35, Page 4, Column 3) published in Dover, Morris County, New Jersey

      "SUSAN L. NEFF.
      Mrs. Susan L. Neff, wife of the late M. Phelps Neff, died at the late residence of her father, Freeman Wood, on Prospect street, shortly before midnight last night, after an illness of several months' duration. Mrs. Neff was born at Rockaway, this county, and spent the later years of her life in this city. Her husband, M. Phelps Neff, who belonged to a family of great prominence in Cincinnati, died some twelve years ago in that city, in which Mr. and Mrs. Neff lived after their marriage. During her residence in Dover, Mrs. Neff was a faithful and devoted member of the Presbyterian Church. In disposition Mrs. Neff was sunny and cheerful and her manner was most gracious and kindly, winning for her a host of loving friends. She is survived by her only child, Stewart M. Neff. The funeral will be held next Monday afternoon, at 2:30 o'clock, from her late residence, 43 Prospect street. The Rev. Dr. W. W. Halloway will officiate. Interment at Rockaway."
