Without General John Neville, the Whiskey Rebellion might have been quite different, for his stubborn resolve helped keep the excise issue alive in western Pennsylvania. When Neville died in 1803 he was buried at the Trinity Church Burial Ground. In 1900, his remains were exhumed and moved to Allegheny Cemetery, Pittsburgh, where they remain today.
