  • Notes 
    • Mrs. Eli Newlin, residing 1 1/2 miles southwest of town, died on last Saturday night, after an illness of 2 weeks, she was born in North Carolina, December 17th, 1808, and was therefore 78 years of age. At the age of 18 she was united in Wedlock to Eli Newlin, who died in 1872. In 1828 they immigrated to this State, locating at Montezuma, and afterwards moving to the county. Mr. Newlin was a prominent citizen of this county and at an early day was elected to the important office of Sheriff. When he died in 1872, his wife took up residence with her son Alfred, where she continued to reside up to the day of her death. Mrs. Newlin was a kind Christian lady, and had been a member of the M.E. Church for many years. Her funeral took place on last Sunday afternoon. Short exercises were conducted at the residence by Rev. J.W. Parrett, after which her remains were followed to the Thomas Cemetery and quietly laid away to rest. (Source: Newport Hoosier - 4/21/1886)
