James P Newell, a native of Franklin, Venango County, Pennsylvania as a young man, made a fortune in lumber and oil. Unfortunately, he explored for more oil and lost the fortune. He removed to Joplin, Missouri around 1874 with his lawyer's license. He was an investor in the local lead mine in Joplin. He also served as the County Clerk for Joplin.
In 1883, he was elected as Jasper County Recorder of Deeds, and then he moved his family to Carthage, fifteen miles away from Joplin. He had also served in the 30th Iowa Volunteer Infantry as a lieutenant in the Civil War.
