James Nelson NEAL

(1910 - 1991)
James Nelson NEAL (1910-1991) c1946
James Nelson NEAL was born in Dandridge, Tennessee, on 13 May 1910. He was the seventh child of John William NEAL, a merchant, and Sarah Catherine THOMAS, who claimed a Cherokee heritage.1,2,3
He was listed in the 1920 census at a farm in Jefferson, Tennessee, with his family - parents John W (52) and Kathrine (45) and siblings Bob (16), John (11), Katie (6), Rosco (21 mths). His father, who came from Nth Carolina, was the farm owner.4

He married Noma J ARNOLD in Akron, Summit Co, Ohio, on 13 July 1929. Both of them were workers at the Firestone rubber works and both claimed to be 22 (i.e. born 1907) rather than admit they were actually only 19.5

He was listed in the 1930 US census at 99 Tract G-5, W Mildred Ave in Akron, Summit Co, Ohio, with his wife Noma; the head of family was his brother-in-law Neil GILLIS (greenhouse gardener), married to his sister Rosa and also present were his parents John and Catherine, his brother Frank (12), plus Neil and Rosa's 3 children. James and Rosa were both clerks, but the 1931 Akron City directory indicates they had moved to Nth Portage Path and he was then a chauffeur.6

He was listed in the 1940 US census as Head of Household at 3B Nth Portage Path in Akron, Summit Co, Ohio, with his wife Noma; he gave an occupation of 'hired hand' with a $1600 annual income.7
He served with the US Army (#35230174) after enlisting at Akron, Ohio on 21 May 1943, from 28 May until his release on 18 Nov 1945. At enlistment he was an electrician, married, with 3 yrs of High Schooling, height 66", weight 114 lbs. He served in Papua New Guinea as a sharpshooter before suffering injuries from shrapnel and being hospitalised in Brisbane, then ending his service in the stores and communications sections of the Army.3,8,9

James's second marriage was to Mary Ellen (Nell) CUMMING, daughter of George CUMMING and Ethel Maud ROBINSON, in 1946 at St Stephen's Cathedral in Brisbane, Queensland.10,9
Wedding of James N NEAL and Mary Ellen CUMMING, 1946


Jim and Nell created a successful retail business in about 1946 with stores at Redcliffe and Sandgate - Brisbane newspapers carry many advertisements for 'James N Neal & Co' selling refridgerators, washing machines, radios, furniture and later TVs. The business was reputedly started by Jim with the aid of a £300 loan from an Australian digger Jim had met in either PNG or Brisbane.11,9

He arrived in Sydney on 29 January 1957 on the Monterey and as he was an American citizen, appears in the Alien Register records for this period.12

Mary Ellen also arrived in from a Singapore trip on 11 Mar 1968. They both described themselves as 'Electrical retailers' and latterly 'Company Directors' with a home address of 1a Warde St, Scarborough.13
