Ham, Cornelius Henry (Neil) (1868–1938)

Mr. Cornelius Henry Ham, who died on July 11 at his home in Cavendish Road, Coorparoo, lived for 48 years in North Coast districts. Much of his boyhood was spent at Redclifie (then Humpybong). In 1889, soon after the railway was opened, he took up orchard land at Narangba and took a keen interest in public affairs. He helped largely towards the establishment of a State school and Sunday services in the district. He was also secretary of the first North Pine show. He moved with his family to North Arm in 1911. Here he helped towards the building of a School of Arts and the State school, for which he was committee secretary for many years. In March, 1937, he returned to Brisbane. He is survived by his widow and four sons— Messrs. George and Victor (Brisbane), Harry (North Arm), and Eric Ham (Central Queensland).
