Son of Almon Newell and Rachel Bunn Lundy

Married Sarah Ann Shawcroft, 25 Dec 1871, Fountain Green, Sanpete, Utah

Daughter - Lillian Maud Newell

History - During the winter months when there was not much work to do on the farm, the men went to work in the mines at Eureka, Tintic, Mammoth & Dividend. It was while working in the mine at Mammoth that Almon and Geraldus were killed in a tragic accident. It seems that Geraldus got caught in the mine cage. His father tried to pry the cage open to free his son, but he was impaled on the shovel handle and both of them died, 29 May 1878.
