Clinton A. Neville was born April 27, 1904, on a farm in Clark County, near Garden City, South Dakota, to Wilson and Vinona (Bartlett) Neville.

At the age of two, he moved with his parents and family by team and wagon to a homestead southwest of Milesville, South Dakota.  He grew up there and attended rural school in that community prior to graduating from Philip High School in 1924.  He taught rural school in the Hilland community for one year.

Clinton was united in marriage to Florence Eymer on August 31, 1928, at Kadoka, South Dakota.  They made their home on the Neville homestead southwest of Milesville, which they operated until retiring in 1983 and moving into Philip.  They continued to make their home in Philip.

Clinton was a member of Our Redeemer Lutheran Church of Philip and a former member of First Lutheran Church of Milesville.  He was county assessor for northern Haakon County for several years and a member of the South Dakota Stockgrowers Association and the Bad River Senior Citizens.
