Neuville, Louis G. manager and part owner of the Neuville-Moran Realty Company of Minocqua, was born at Dicksville, Brown County, Wis., Oct. 10, 1887, son of Leopold and Mary (DORMAL) NEUVILLE, a brief sketch of whose lives is given with that of another of their sons elsewhere in this volume. Louis G. received his education at Oconto and subsequently learned the tailoring business there. He remained at Oconto until 1905, when he went to Ironwood, Mich., for a few months, and in the fall of the same year he went to Rhinelander, Wis. He came to Minocqua in the spring of 1906 and was here employed by Frank LANGE until the fall of 1908, when with his brother Elie he went into the tailoring business, the brothers establishing the Neuville Tailoring Co. with Louis as salesman. In September, 1921, he sold his interests in this enterprise to Elie and entered his present business as a partner in the Neuville-Moran Realty Co., dealing in loans, insurance, and all sorts of real estate, including lake frontage, frams, cutover and timber lands; the present holdings of the company are about 640 acres. Mr. NEUVILLE is a great booster for Minocqua and the surrounding territory and has done much to build up this section of the country, bringing in many new settlers and in other ways aiding in the development. He is a member of the Woodruff lodge of Odd Fellows and of the Minocqua Association of Commerce, and is the sort of man that makes a valuable addition to any community.
