George A. Neville was born February 14, 1868 at Basingstoke, Hampshire, England, the son of William and Elizabeth Fisher Neville. He immigrated to America with his parents and brothers and sisters in May 1880. He was baptized in the LDS church in August 1877 by Lorenzo D. Young while in England.
Upon arriving in Utah, they settled in Woodruff. He worked for the Deseret Livestock Ranch herding cattle, riding the range and hauling poles out of the canyons by ox teams. At the age of 16 his father gave him a team of horses so he could start for himself.
He married Selena Hatch in 1889 at Bountiful, Utah. There were two children born to this union, Reva and Harold. In 1905 his wife died. He owned the ranch where the Huffaker family now lives. He helped building the brick home where Carter and Helen Cornia lived. He helped build a lime kiln on Woodruff Creek. Lime from this kilm was used to make the brick houses in Woodruff. Lime was sold in Evanston, and was hauled by ox team. After the death of his wife he married Helen Marr Atkinson, who bore him four children.
