*There is another Newton cemetery, East of El Dorado, about 300 ' off Hwy. 82 East, near Dunbar lane. Until a few months ago this cemetery was taken over by dense brush & almost impossible to get to. I visited it in April 2004 & found 3 tombstones in pristine condition, for Newtons. It was fenced off with old wooden post & steel cable, about 10 x 10 '. (The fence / cable was partially collapsed) See the other listing.
