Henry Newton

Argus and Patriot

May 15, 1901

Moretown, May 8 - Henry Newton, a prominent citizen of this place, dropped dead in his barn this morning. He was unconscious when picked up and did not regain his senses. He arose this morning in his usual health, and went to the barn to do his milking. After he had milked a number of cows he arose and fell to the floor behind the cow. A boy who was with him found him unconscious and notified his wife.

Death is believed to have been due to heart trouble with which the deceased had been afflicted for a number of years. He was nearly 61 years of age and leaves a widow and one son, Burt Newton. He was a veteran of the civil war.

The deceased resided near Moretown Common and was a much respected townsman. His funeral is to take place at 1 o'clock tomorrow afternoon, Rev. George Emery officiating.
