    "\""During the end of April, David Reese and his company settled the land north of the Logan River. That area was the second permanent settlement in Cache Valley and the future location of Logan. The city's boundary was drawn by Logan's first bishop, Jesse W. Fox, a government engineer.

Some members of this clan later migrated to Antrim and Derry in Ireland. A different Scottish Clan MacNeill (spelled with two l's) has a traditional ancestral home on the island of Gigha.
