Thomas Alexander Neilson1

M, b. circa 1850, d. 1 August 1933
  • Thomas Alexander Neilson was born circa 1850. He was the son of William Neilson and Margaret Pearson.1,2
  • Thomas Alexander Neilson married Annie Bridson circa 1884.1
  • On 13 June 1895,Thomas Alexander Neilson's son, Thomas Alexander Neilson was buried in Toowoomba & Drayton Cemetery.3
  • Thomas Alexander Neilson and Annie Bridson appeared on the Electoral Roll in 1903 living at Queen Street, Crow's Nest. Thomas was a farmer.4
  • On 3 March 1905 Thomas Neilson gave evidence at the trial of James Ryan for the murder of Walter Benton. The Brisbane Courier reported next day -
    "Thomas Alexander Neilson, clerk at Blinco's Sawmills, Crow's Nest, deposed : He had known the defendant Ryan about a year. Benton had been an old friend of
    witness's.
    ' Mr. Herbert : He is still isn't he ?
    Sub-inspector Geraghty : Your time will come presently, Mr. Herbert.
    Witness, continuing, said he last saw Benton on the morning of the 4th Febru- ary, at 10 o'clock. Benton had been stop- ping at witness's place. Benton had some horses. He usually wore one spur, but witness could not say on which foot. Wit- ness had money dealings with Benton, who was always honest and straightforward. Benton never expressed to witness any in- tention of leaving the district, or going to England. Any such intention would prob- ably have been expressed to witness. Noth- ing hod been heard of Benton since the 4th February.
    Sub-inspector Geraghty : What opinion have you formed ?
    Mr. Herbert : Opinion is not evidence. Witness : I think he is dead.
    Mr. Herbert: It does not matter two straws what your opinion is ; it is not evidence.
    The Bench ruled that a statement of opinion was not admissible.
    Witness further deposed that if Benton was alive he would have been sure to communicate with witness, who knew no reason for his disappearance. Benton always carried a knife. He believed it had a large buck-horn handle. On Saturday. 11th February, Ryan called at witness's house, and said he had been looking for a sub- scription list belonging to Benton, but could find no tidings of it. Witness replied that he had the list. Defendant said he wished to see it, as he thought a lot of money had been collected on it. Wit- ness replied he could not produce the list at that moment, but would try to let de- fendant have a copy. On Monday, the 13th, witness inquired if defendant had seen Benton, and the answer was, "No," On the morning of 13th witness had a con- versation with Mr. Thomas Astbury, and defendant again called half an bour later. Witness showed him a copy of the sub- scription list, on which the amounts paid totalled nine shillings and sixpence. De- fendant said he had thought more had been collected, and somebody must have been telling lies. Witness said defendant could not take notice of what people said. Defendant replied he did not want Kelly to summons Benton for money said to have been collected. Defendant asked if wit- ness had seen Astburv. Witness said, " Yes, I sent lum to the police." Defen- dant said, " I thought so ; they will have the police on Benton's tracks." Defendant added that he had purchased the farm from Benton. Defendant made some state- ment about purchase during the conversation of 11th February, when he also said the purchase money paid to Benton was £125 or £150. Witness was not sure. Witness said it was a funny thing to pay a large amount without a witness. De- fendant said he had a different opinion of Benton. Witness had drawn up the ori ginal lease produced between Kelly and
    Benton, of which a copy had been produced on the previous day.
    Cross-examined, witness said his first in- quiries as to Benton's whereabouts were made to defendant. Benton had been pre- viously absent a week without witness thinking him dead, but on such occasions some one usually saw him about. Witness had not formed the opinion that Benton was dead until Sunday, the 12th. That opinion wes based on the fact of Benton not being heard of. Witness knew Benton had wanted to sell his selection. He be- lieved Konz's was the last place Benton worked. He could not state what night be last slept at witness's house. Witness had understood from the terns of the lease that the sale was to take place in May. Witness knew Alfred King had wanted to purchase Benton's selection.
    Re-examined by Sub-inspector Geraghty, witness said be had not heard of another lease between King and Benton. The lease witness had drawn up was between Benton and Kelly. The defendant was only witness to it. During seven years not more than a week had ever previously elapsed without his hearing of Benton. Witness had no doubt Benton was now dead."5
