James E. Neer was the son of Arthur C. and Evelyn Marie (Hodgens) Neer, the grandson of Charles A. and Florence V. (Cantonwine) Neer, the great-grandson of Frank George and Mary Etta (Rogers/Rodgers) Cantonwine, the great-great grandson of David "Doc" and Cynthia Emily (Irish) Cantonwine, and the great-great-great-grandson of Charles and Mary Magdalena (Scholl) Cantonwine.
Charles, the patriarch of the Cantonwine family, immigrated to America from Prussia in 1806, arriving in Philadelphia, Penn., aboard the ship Orlando. The ship's passenger list shows Chr. Kuntentwine, single man. The name Kuntentwine later evolved to Cantonwine, and Charles appears to be the only surnamed Kuntentwine/ Cantonwine to immigrate to America. Eight or so years after his arrival in Philadelphia, in about 1814, Charles married Mary Magdalena Scholl, daughter of Charles Jacob Scholl, in Bedford county, Pennsylvania.
James died at age 21.
