History - Newman, the last child of Cathrine Jensen and Abraham Hunsaker, was born in Honeyville on 7 July 1881. He lived most of his life in the house on the southeast corner of the crossroads, which had been his mother's home.

Newman married Myrtle Jane Smith on 16 July 1902, and for several years of their early married life they dry farmed in Blue Creek Valley. Later they returned to Honeyville to live, and Newman remained there the rest of his life. He ran farms west of Honeyville up to the time of his death.
Newman was an ardent baseball fan and always played the game at every opportunity.

First he played with the "singles" as a young man, and later with the "marrieds," as the men of Honeyville used to team up according to their marital status. Newman had a real inventive ability and was very mechanically minded. In his younger years he spent much of his spare time in an old shed designing and making many useful tools. He was advised many times to patent some of his inventions, but he never did, preferring to let anyone use his tools and ideas without obligation.

Newman owned one of the first automobiles in Honeyville, a beautiful red and black two-passenger car. As automobiles were so rare at that time, it was considered a very wonderful thing, and Newman spent most of his Sunday afternoons taking people for a ride in his new auto.

Newman's oldest son, Foster, was killed in a hunting accident when he was 14. Another son, Kless, tumbled into a tub of boiling water and was scalded to death when he was only three years old.

Myrtle died on 18 May 1922, after a long illness. Newman married Eva Cecelia Chlarson on 12 September 1923.

Although Newman never took a very active part in the affairs of the Church, he was a good man and always tried to live by the "Golden Rule." In the opinion of all those who knew him, he succeeded very well in doing so. He was always loved and respected not only by his children but by all who knew him.

Newman died of a heart attack on Christmas Eve, 1955.
