Hi, I am looking for information on John M Newell. I hope someone in Vermillion Co. will be willing to check the local archives. I would be very greatful and willing to reciprocate by checking for information in Lincoln Co Oklahoma, if they need it. He was a minister in Vermillion Co. around 1870. I know he was on the census in 1870 but I have no idea how long he was there. He was born in Putnam Co Indiana to Henry and Mary Gray Newel. I can find no information on this family prior to the 1850 census and I am at a complete standstill. I am hoping that there may be some little tidbit of info which will point me in the right direction.
