Newell, Emory G. (1846 - 3 JAN 1925)

Emory Gibbs Newell was born in Willoughby, Ohio, in 1846, the son of William and Lucinda Warner. When a small child the family moved to Erie Co., N.Y. His mother died when deceased was only four years old. The boy was taken by Daniel and Nancy Newell and raised as their own son.

At the age of nineteen, he married Adella Stage and to this union were born five children, Mrya Rover, who died in California in 1913, and the following surviving children: Daniel of Elgin, Ill., Jessie M. Warner of Neillsville, Mrs. Carolyn Girard of Kenosha, Wis., and Mrs. Zada Warren of Neillsville. His faithful wife passed on in March 1924.

While in poor health for over a year, Mr. Newell was able to be about most of the time, and was confined to his bed for less than a week. He died at 2:45 p.m. Jan. 3, 1925 at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Zada Warren.

Mr. Newell was a man of kindly, genial disposition, who loved home life, and took great interest in farm work and the care of domestic animals, and had a wholesome liking for the out of doors.

The funeral was held at the Warren home on Monday afternoon, Rev. G. W. Longenecker officiating.
