Dr. J.L. Neville was born in Lincoln county, Mo., August 21st, 1835, emigrated with his parents in 1850 to California, remained in that state until 1858 at which time he visited Eugene City, Lane county, Oregon; at which place he attended Columbia College for one year; later attending Wallamette University for the same length of time. While on the Pacific coast he engaged in various enterprises, such as lumbering, gold mining, etc.

He returned to the east in 1869, visited the boyhood scenes of his old home in Lincoln county, Mo., at which he married Miss Mary French, March 18th, 1872, and is the father of three children, Mrs. B. Westerveit, who resides in St. Louis, Mo., Dr. W.H. Neville, a successful dentist of Paducah, KY., and Miss Yosemite Neville a traveling saleslady. The Dr. while in California spent one year at a hydropathic institute located near Oakland. He also graduated at the St. Louis, Mo., school of Medical Electricity and Suggestive Therapeutics and later graduated at the American school of Osteopathy of Kirksville, Mo. However in consequence of the pressure of business for the last eight or ten years the Dr. has been unable to devote his attention to his profession hence outside of the requirements of business he has principally devoted his spare moments to the study of the philosophy of the various claims of the many systems of medication in vogue. In addition to the extensive study of psychology and metaphysics, and associated themes. And after many years of critical investigation the Dr. declares as an exact scientific fact, that barring accident any one possessing the necessary intelligence can continue to exist physically about as long as they desire. The Dr. has not taken drugs for many years, and notwithstanding he is at this time eighty-one years of age, instead of indicating old age conditions he is gradually developing physically and mentally better all the time.
