When the war brok eout the deceased took up his country's cause and served it well as a member of the 156tth Indiana. "Hod" Newton was a man of kindly impulses and many general traits of character that will linger long in the memory of his friends. The funeral services were conducted Tuesday at the home by Dr. Tharp of the Christian Church. The casket was draped in flags, the deceased having been a soldier of the War of '61.
