Dr. Still was a medical doctor and herbalist born in 1812 in Indian Mills, Burlington County, New Jersey. James Still was perhaps the most gifted physician in South Jersey during the nineteenth century. Dr. Still was moved to purchase two books on medical botany on one of his trips to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and began practicing herbal medicine somewhat by accident, agreeing to treat a sick man in exchange for some sassafras. Still became well known for his “cough balm” created from plants and herbs grown in the South Jersey pinelands.
