Il est l'un des « frères Poe », quatre frères, fils de John Prentiss Poe, et deux cousins qui ont été de célèbres joueurs de football américain à l'université de Princeton entre 1882 et 1901. Neilson est sorti diplômé de Princeton en 1897. Durant la Première Guerre mondiale, il sert dans l'infanterie de l'armée de terre des États-Unis avec le grade de lieutenant.
