James F. Neville was born April 19,1803 in Pennsylvania, Green County. His parents were Henry Neville Sr. and Armintha /Armyntha Hunter Neville. His brothers and sister were Edward Thompson Neville, George Neville, Henry Neville Jr. and Jane Neville , and perhaps others. I do not know all their names.
James was of Irish decent, as his parents were born and raised in Ireland for some years. The parents came to the United States, seperatly, met and married. Aramintha was from Colorain, Derry county, Northern Ireland, and Henry Sr. from Tyrone county, Northern Ireland.
This information is from our family history .
James parents were in Pennsylvania, then the family moved to Ohio, Pickaway township. There is a family story of James's father Henry Neville Sr., and the family business ventures, milling, mercantiling in Ohio and land purchases, in Ohio. ( from My research, and family history...Delores)
James met and married Mary Ann Hartman Neville in Ohio. James and Mary Ann had 7 children that I know of... William H. , Henry B., Nancy Ann, Mary A. James William and Solomon D. Neville.
James and Mary Ann moved from Ohio, to Paris ,Edgar ,Illinois. James father , mother and siblings moved to the same location in Illinois. The Neville family purchased much land around Paris, Edgar,Illinois. James and Mary Ann raised their family in Paris,Illinois,and Osage Iowa( my research ).
James was farming. Later he and Mary Ann moved to Osage, Mitchell Iowa, after the death of James father, Henry Sr. (1850). James mother , died afew years later, I do not know her exact year of death, or her burial location. James father died in Paris Edgar, Illinois, he is buried there. James mother Aramintha died probably Paris, Edgar , Illinois. Aramintha was living with daughter Jane Neville Minear, (new information dated December 2017. Jane and her husband Solomon were living in Paris, Edgar, Illinois in 1850 and 1860 according to census records.) DWR revised research. I now believe James mother Aramintha could have been buried in the Old 16 cemetery near her husband Henry Sr. Neville. Perhaps her stone did not survive these years, there was vandelism of the cemetery. Henry's stone was damaged, but now repaired and is pictured on his memorial on Find a Grave web. James brother, Henry Jr. Neville and his wife Elizabeth
Hedges Neville have young children buried in old 16 cemetery Paris Edgar, Illinois, near their grandfather Henry Sr. Neville. See records for family. These children would be part of the Neville family. Henry Jr. Neville died on the trailging to California during the 1850 Gold Rush . Henry Jr. got sick and was buried near the Carson River, Nevada. Brother Edward Thompson Neville was with Henry Jr. Neville,at the time of his death. Edward survived .
James and Mary Ann owned a farm in Osage, Iowa area, they bought a homestead or a farm.
In the 1860 Civil war era, James enlisted.
Again at present I have not been able to locate a burial record for James.
I asked for a record of his burial in Osage area cemetary or a photo of his grave stone from Find a Grave.
I have been notified a grave has not been located
as of April, 2014 according to Find A Grave web.
New memo from Delores........

Note: This story below is from decendent Ken Walling.

"James F. Neville enlisted at the age of 59 as a Drummer. The story was passed down to us is that he was the oldest member of the Company, and he was teamed with a young man of only 15 or 16 years of age, that played the Fife.
On February 17,1864 James Neville was discharged for disability at Memphis ,Tennessee to which he later died from at Wars end."
" James Neville enlisted with his son-in-law,William H. Walling .
(information from decendent Ken Walling), "At the age of 25 William H. Walling enlisted with his father-in-law (James F. Neville), with the 27th Iowa Infantry, company K."
William H. Walling is married to James daughter Nancy Ann Neville Walling.

It is said that James died from complications, from his service in the Civil War. James is supposed to be buried at Osage, Mitchell county cemetary in Iowa, sometime between 1864 and 1865.
I have not found his burial location, or the location of Mary Ann's burial as yet.
James and Mary Ann's daughter Nancy Ann Neville Walling is laid to rest with her husband William, in Osage cemetary.
I will make this memorial for James F. Neville and his wife Mary Ann Hartman Neville,in Osage cemetary, until I have more information.
Family decendent Ken Walling ,posted an obituary for Nancy Ann Neville Walling.
Perhaps a family decent grandchild, will see this and we can update this memorial,with more information.

My third great grandfather is Edward Thompson Neville, brother to James F. Neville.
