Death: 09 Nov 1866
Spouse: Mrs Hope McNail
Marriage: About 1846, Greene, Illinois
Source: patron submission
The birth and death dates submitted here appear to be from a tombstone, but of a different John A. McNAIL.  These cannot be the dates for our subject because the censuses show him to be 20 years younger, plus he was still living in the 1870 census!
