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

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
