The result of the move request was: no consensus to move. No sources for McNeil as correct spelling have been produced, and MacNeil appears to be the common name in any case. Favonian (talk) 11:05, 10 July 2011 (UTC)
Relisting... if it's a common misconception then perhaps this is the name he's best known by? Or can a case be made in terms of Wikipedia policy on article titles? Because if not, I'm afraid it should stay where it is. Andrewa (talk) 09:51, 3 July 2011 (UTC)

This is really unwikipedic looking, but is it correct? I started looking around and it gets messy pretty quickly. Looking in Mantle Fielding, the standard for American artists I find "born Everett MA"  "Who's Who in American Art" agrees. , as do several other standard references . Proske, whom I have a lot a respect for and trust in says "Chelsea, MA" . McSpadden, who actually interviewed MacNeil writes, "born at Prattville near Chelsea" MA . Craven, who begins his section on MacNeil by quoting McSpadden, has Mac being born "near Chelsea."  So, we should say what?
