  • 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.

      Owensboro Messenger, Tuesday morning, December 23, 1919:

      Mrs Margaret M. Newton, one of the oldest and most highly esteemed women of Daviess county, died Monday morning at 7 o'clock at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Walter Elder, in the St. Raphael neighborhood, after an illness lasting for several months.

      Mrs. Newton was born in Breckenridge County seventy-nine years ago, and her husband died in this county twenty-seven years ago.

      The deceased is survived by four daughters, Mrs. James U. Hayden, Mrs. Walter Elder, of the county, and Mrs. Clarence Hayden and Mrs. J. M. O'Bryan, of Owensboro; also three sons, J. S. and L. V. Newton of Daviess county, and S. T. Newton of Jefferson county. The deceased is also survived by fifty-six grandchildren and forty-eight great grandchildren.

      The funeral will take place from St. Raphael's Catholic church this morning at 9 o'clock with service by Rev. Father Higgins, with interment in the church cemetery.
