Info to discount the above marriage of Mary J Kneeland to Michael Cronan ..................

Drat it looks like there are two John and Hanora Nealand (in this instance) - 1865 census - Auburn, Worcester, Massachusetts - which matches the marriage record for Mary above but not the correct siblings.

John Nealand   45 Hannora Nealand   45
Patrick Nealand   17 Catharine Nealand   15
Michael Nealand   13 Mary Nealand   11
Sarah Nealand   9 Margaret Nealand   7 Bridget Nealand   5
