Olga Irene (Warner) Penzin,
"Memories" Collection, 1993:

"...there was a little movie theater "The Idle Hour" in the small river town of Lowell, Kent, MI [which Newton owned]. Selling tickets for the shows was Mary (Boroughf) Warner, mother of three young men. The youngest of them, Alva, took the tickets as people entered the theater. The oldest son, Claude, operated the projector. And because these pictures were silent and "needed a little help," Royden, the middle son, played the piano and Newton, the father, "lectured" the pictures. At times the family owned theaters in other towns--Belding and Lake Odessa, and perhaps also in St. Louis, MI.

"But, for whatever reason, this was not a long-time kind of work for Newton. For a while he was a building mover, making use of horse power in its original form. At one time both Mary and Newton worked in an apple-drying factory. Another time they owned a big, square-framed building in Grand Rapids, which they called "the block," and rented out apartments. Sometimes, Newt, as he was commonly called, did factory work, but perhaps his main life work was farming, for he came back to this again and again.

"He used to trade horses sometimes, so Mary was never sure, when she saw a team of horses coming down the road, whether or not it was her husband driving them."
