ALBURTIS NEFF, was born in New York, March 17, 1821, son of Irwin and Polly Neff, natives of that State. When he reached his majority he began the struggle for life, working out by the day and month, receiving small wages for his labor. Mr. Neff has been twice married. By his first wife, nee Mary Babcock, he had four children, three of whom are now living. He came to Clark County, Wisconsin, in 1867, and in that year, on the 27th of May, he wedded Isabel Short, a native of New York. Her ancestors came from Scotland.

Like many of the early settlers of Wisconsin, Mr. Neff spent a number of years in the logging business. He has been a hard working man all his life, and is now the owner of a nice little farm, located five miles from Neillsville, on section 1, Lewis Township. He cleared his land by hand with  the help of a team of horses.  He affiliates with the Republican party.
