Bio and Links
Nearly all of the memorials I've added are related to me and I would love to correspond with anyone else who is related. I have much more data than is online for most of these relatives and am glad to share, plus I'm always looking for more information that anyone else has to offer.

Thank you to all the people who have posted memorials and have been gracious about either adding information and links or by transferring the memorials.

Robert E. Newville, postmaster of Boyne City, is one of the oldest
residents of this city, having lived here since 1881. He was born in
Allegany county. New York, August 20, 1853. His early education was obtained in his native state, in Iowa and in Michigan, a course in a
business college at Adrian preparing him for a commercial career.

He was with a grocery firm at Schofield, Michigan, for a time. On his arrival at Boyne City in March, 1881, he engaged in lumbering and in July, 1883, became bookkeeper and manager in the general store of John Monroe, Sr., and for three years from 1883 was with William H. White engaged in getting out lumber. Selling out to Mr. White, he was in the livery business until 1893, and for five years following was traveling representative of an insurance company. In 1898 Mr. Newville was appointed postmaster at Boyne City and still holds that post of trust and public service. In 1910 he began the development of a farm of one hundred and sixty acres within a short distance of the city. His first public office was that of school inspector, and he has also served as village assessor, as deputy sheriff two terms, and as under-sheriff one term.

Robert O. and Sarah A. (Gifford) Newville, the parents of the
Boyne City postmaster, were born in New York state, and the father
died at the age of eighty-four and the mother at eighty-three. Two
of their eight children are living, John A. and Robert E. The father
was a farmer, and on moving west first went to Iowa, but in 1868 settled in Michigan. Their journey from Iowa to Michigan. which was under-

taken when Robert E. was fifteen years old, was made in wagons. They crossed the Mississippi at McGregor, Iowa, then across Wisconsin to Milwaukee, by steamer across the lake to Manistee, thence to Traverse
City, where Robert was employed during the summer on the construction work of the Grand Rapids & Indiana railroad, and in the fall of the year the family resumed its migration to Lenawee county. The family afterwards settled in Monroe county, where the father was postmaster of his village one term, and in 1881 the latter located at Boyne City where he spent the rest of his life.

January 1, 1876, Robert E. Newville married Miss Florence Hill. She was born in DeWitt, Michigan, a daughter of Theo and Delia (Welsh) Hill, the former a native of New York and the latter of Michigan. The father died in 1907, and the mother now resides in Arizona.

Mrs. Newville is the oldest of their seven children, six of whom are
living. Her father was a minister of the Methodist church. Six children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Newville :
Blanche, who died at the age of nineteen;
Floyd, who is assistant postmaster; married Grace Hurd
Loyal, a machinist;
Irving, Earl and Albert are at home.

Mr. Newville is a prominent Odd Fellow, being past noble grand of the Boyne River Lodge No. 367, Independent Order of Odd Fellows, P. C. P. of Boyne City Encampment, No. 103, and is also grand guardian of the Grand Lodge of the state.
