Word was received here yesterday that Eli J. Newton was dead. He died at the Baptist Hospital in St. Louis where he went several months ago to be treated for cancer.
The funeral was held today at Macon at 1:00.
Mr. Newton was a splendid Christian gentleman and his death is deeply regretted by many of his friends in Macon County.
He was fifty-eight years old at the time of his death.
Note: His tombstone indicates age as 60 years 1 month 7 days. That would make his birth date January 5, 1841. 1880 and 1900 Macon Co., MO censuses show birth year as 1843, as well as death record in St. Louis. Died of carcinoma of head.
