 Newton Township East Cemetery, Newton Falls, Trumbull County, Ohio, USA


Tree:  

Latitude: 41.18839, Longitude: -80.97814679999999
Newton Township East Cemetery

Notes:
Note from Kay Gary: Newton Township was part of the Connecticut Western Reserve. A township is 5 miles long by 5 miles wide. Newton Township range is Range 5, Township 3. Newton Falls became a town within the township in 1874. The Newton Township Cemetery has two sections, East and West, one on each side of the Mahoning River. The East Cemetery is the old section. Hiram, Lucretia, Horace, John H. Elizabeth, Jane and Abraham are buried in a newer part of the Newton Falls East Cemetery. Probably added after 1860's but I don't know the date. From the newspaper I gathered that Hiram, Horace, John H., Elizabeth, Jane and Abraham were all moved in 1893. They too all in one row. Possibly there wasn't room for Lucretia or they might have been spread apart, but they all have identical markers and since Lucretia has no dates I figure she placed them. One map I have indicates Lucretia Allen owner and that's where they all are.

Lucretia Allen. Lucretia Miller Allen died May 5, 1897. Lucretia was the daughter of Samuel Miller (1787-1856) and Nancy Hudson Miller 1830-1877. Note from Kay Gary: Shirley Yates DAR papers said that Lucretia died Jan, 1897 but I am sitting here looking at the Administration Docket for Lucretia and it says she died May 5, 1897. She left her farm to her son Addison Allen who was a drinker. Addison was drunk and with Jesse Allen's son Leavitt in 1908 when they fell drunk from wagon and Leavitt died. Then in 1915 Addison fell, while drunk, and broke his neck. His wife, had 3 children, lost the farm and it was auctioned off. One of Lucretia's sisters will states he would inherit land and money if he quit drinking.
