"In 1820 Henry Neal moved to Ohio and purchased a farm in Gallia County, where he made his home until coming to Nodaway County, Missouri in 1853, the remainder of his life being spent near where our subject now lives [is buried]. Together they bought a farm and later entered some land, which was operated by the sons. Being a well educated man, he successfully engaged in school-teaching during the greater part of his life, and devoted considerable attention to the business of a civil engineer, surveying this county and platting a portion of Maryville, besides the towns of Quitman and Xenia. He surveyed many public roads and took an active and prominent part in the development of the county. In early days he served as a colonel in the state militia of Ohio, and as a Democrat took quite an influential part in public affairs, serving as justice of the peace and county judge of Nodaway county. He dies in 1867, honored and respected by all who knew him. The mother of our subject, who was a earnest member of the Methodist church, died in the county in 1858. Her children were Enos, a resident of Kansas; Charles S.; Martha, who died unmarried; Mrs. Elizabeth Jones; Mrs. Jane Hanna, who owns and operates part of the old homestead. For his second wife the father married Charlotte Campbell, still living and they had five children of whom James I, William A, Joshua L, and Henry are living."
