|Death: ||Sep. 10, 1828|
WILLIAM NEYMAN came from Westmoreland county, Pennsylvania, to Butler county, in 1799, accompanied by his parents, Harmon NEYMAN and wife, both of whom died here. He selected several hundred acres of land near the mouth of Bonny Brook, in what is now Summit township, where he erected a grist mill in the year 1800, one of the first mills built in Butler county.
William was a Private in the War of 1812 and was assigned to Company 1 Regiment Riflemen (Humphrey's), Pennsylvania. Captain Joseph Sands was the commanding officer of the Riflemen of Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.
William twice married, and by his first marriage was the father of three children, William, Henry and Elizabeth, all of whom were reared to maturity. His second wife was Mary SUMNEY, a daughter of Jacob SUMNEY, a leading pioneer of Butler county.
He carried on the mill near the mouth of Bonny Brook for many years, and subsequently purchased lands and erected a mill in what is now Oakland township, which property he gave to his sons, William and Henry, and bought the farm now occupied by their sons--John L., and Josiah, with whom Mrs. NEYMAN made her home until her death. She was a member of the Presbyterian church, and always manifested a deep interest in its prosperity.
