    Notes:

    Listed in the 1911 Owensboro city directory as "Newton, Margaret (wid. Henry), bds. 819 Mulberry."

    The 1910 US census lists her as a "farmer" and as an "employer".

    Her death date has often been given as 16 Dec 1919, or (as on her Find a Grave page) 23 Dec 1919, but the actual date given on her death certificate is simply Dec 1919. The doctor (Edward Barr) states that he has been attending her since 1 Feb 1919 and that 16 Dec 1919 is the last date on which he saw her alive. His signature on the death certificate is dated 22 Dec 1919. Furthermore, the Owensboro Messenger for Tuesday, 23 Dec 1919, says she died "Monday morning", which would indicate the previous day, 22 Dec 1919, the same day her death certificate was signed. The death certificate also states, in agreement with the next day's story in the Messenger, that she is to be buried the next day, 23 Dec, at St. Raphael's.
