Crossmolina - Neeley (Any spelling) and Wray and Joynt and Gardner

I am researching the early NEELEY family that lived in the Crossmolina parish area.   Particular neighborhoods were Moyla and Carrowkelly.


The eldest Neeley that I currently have is:         Robert NEELEY, b.abt 1785.   Married Margaret WRAY in 1804 and had the following children:  Margary, Robert Jr, Aaron, Frances, John and Oliver, from 1807-1822.  Frances married John Joynt and immigrated to Canada.   Oliver married Mary Anne Gardner.


A possible sibling group was confirmed (COI) in 1804 in Crossmolina:  John, Rob., Sam. and Aaron.   Is this the same Robert?


Who were their parents?   Was this family group always in Mayo or did they migrate to Mayo from Donegal or Londonderry ?   When/where did Robert Neeley Sr. die ?


Thanks.    Nancy
