Son of James H & Clara (DAILEY) NEWELL

Harry H. Newell, who has won a gratifying measure of prosperity as a raiser and feeder of stock, is the owner of a well improved farm of eighty acres in Marion township. He was born in Muskingum county, Ohio, October 27, 1877, his parents being James and Clara (Dailey) Newell, who are likewise natives of the Buckeye state. Both the father and mother are still living. They reared a family of four children, two sons and two daughters, all of whom make their home in Iowa. The sons are married and reside on farms in this county.
In his youthful years Harry H. Newell received the educational advantages afforded by the common schools. After attaining his majority he left the parental roof and during the following six years was actively identified with agricultural interests as a farm hand and also as a renter. He was then married and subsequently purchased the farm of eighty acres which he now owns and operates, having made all of the improvements on the property. He feeds stock on quite an extensive scale and thus utilizes all of the grain which he raises. In addition to the above he is now doing quite an extensive dairy business. His estimable wife has proven herself a true helpmate as well as companion and to her he largely attributes his success.
It was on the 28th of October, 1904, that Mr. Newell was joined in wedlock to Miss Sarah Hickman, of Linn county, a daughter of Shelton and Chloe (Ross) Hickman. She was one of a family of two sons and four daughters, the others being as follows: Anna, the wife of W. J. Greer, of Marion, Linn county John M., who is deceased; Mrs. Carrie B. Cowan, who lives at Lake Park, Iowa; Marcus S., whose sketch appears on another page of this work; and Laura, the wife of E. J. Gillmore, of Marion township. Mrs. Newell supplemented her preliminary education by a course of study in the high school. Both she and her husband are faithful members of the Methodist church, the teachings of which they exemplify in their daily lives. The young couple have an extensive circle of warm friends throughout the community and wherever known they are held in high esteem.
