Born in Prince Edward County on 26 October 1855, the second in five children born to Nathaniel DeMill and Wealthy Ann Palmer. He worked on the family farm until 1880 when he moved to Manitoba, working for 18 months in a general store operated at Carman by R. P. Roblin. He then took up farming in the vicinity of Carman. In 1882 he married Jennie Dunn. They had three children: Nathaniel DeMill, Annie DeMill, and Alfred DeMill. He served on the Carman School Board and, in February 1912, was appointed a police magistrate at Carman.
