DAVID NEVIN, lumberman and farmer, was born in the city of Toronto, Canada, in October 1832. In 1865 he came to Alcona County and worked at lumbering by the month. He then went at jobbing, and has followed it to the present time. After settling here he purchased 160 acres of land in Section 22, Harrisville Township, situated about three-fourths of a mile from the Lake. This land Mr. Nevin cleared and has converted into one of the finest farms in the county. He also has eighty acres of land in Section 20, besides a large amount of wild land. Mr. Nevin has a wife and eight children. He is a liberal and enterprising man.
