Dr. Newton Sewell, born 5-24-1853 and died 12-22-1908. His mother Kittie Evaline (Moore) Sewell, born 12-16-1835 and died 5-12-1857. Taken from the History of Benton County Arkansas, 1889. Newton's biography reads as such: "Dr. Newton Sewell, physician and druggist, of Springtown, Ark., is a native of Forsyth County, Georgia., born May 24, 1853, and is son of Aaron J. and Kittie Evaline (Moore) Sewell, who were born in South Carolina and North Carolina, respectively. The father is now residing in Dawson County, Ga., and is a farmer and a member of the Baptist Church. He served three years in the Confederate army in the late war, and is a son of Joshua Sewell, a native of Maryland, and of Irish and German descent. The mother died in Georgia.
Dr. Newton Sewell received his primary education in the schools of his native country and afterward entered the Atlanta (GA) Medical College and was graduated as an M.D. in that institution in 1880. He immediately began practicing his profession in Cherokee County, Georgia, but came to Springtown Ark., where he has since made his home, where he has a large and lucrative practice. He ranks among the first physicians in the county, and deserves much credit for his success in life, and his education was obtained through his own unaided efforts. He is a member of the Drug Firm, Sewell and Enterkin and is and belongs to the Masonic fraternity.
January 11, 1872, he was married to Miss Matilda C. Pool, and six of their seven children are living: Elsie Alice, Lenora Theodocia, Laura A. E., Oscar V., Agnes E., Pearl and Maggie Estelle. Mrs. Sewell was born in Forsyth County, Ga., and is a daughter of Dr. M. L. Pool. Dr. Sewell and family attend the Baptist Church." (1888)
