  Notes for Clifton Daniel Newell:
Jasper County, Iowa ~~~ Historical and Genealogical Data Exchange
Clifton Delano Newell
This is an age in which the farmer stands pre-eminently above any other class as a producer of wealth. He simply takes advantage of the winds, the warm air, the bright sunshine and the refreshing rains, and applying his own hands and skill to nature's gifts he creates grain, hay, livestock, etc., all of which are absolute necessities to the inhabitants of the world, for no matter what our vocations and avocations may be or where we may choose to maintain our home, we cannot lose sight of the fact that we are depending upon the tiller of the soil and without him the entire human race would perish. It has been well said by one of our wisest men, "Burn down your cities and leave our farms and they will spring up again as if by magic, but destroy the farms and the grass will grow in the streets of every city."

One of this large class of the world's benefactors is Clifton Delano Newell, of Kellogg Township, Jasper County, who was born December 31, 1878, in Newton Township. He is the son of George W. and Amanda (Brown) Newell, the father born in Knox County, Ohio, and the mother's birth also occurred in that County on August 11, 1848. They grew to maturity there, were educated and married in their home community and began life on the farm, in fact, have continued to engage in agricultural pursuits until the present time. They came to Jasper County, Iowa, in 1878, locating in Newton Township, living a year on a rented farm a mile northwest of the town of Newton, and they continued to live in that vicinity until 1892, when they moved to a farm three miles southeast of Newton, and there became very comfortably established.

To Mr. and Mrs. George W. Newell six children have been born, namely: Nora E., Clifton Delano, of this review, Bessie H., Baxter E., Clayton Elmer and George Martin. The immediate subject of this sketch grew to manhood in Jasper County and attended the public schools, attending high school at Newton for three years. After leaving the schoolroom he took up farming with his father, on the shares, thus working until 1909, when, having gotten a good start, he purchased the one-hundred-and- forty -acre farm on which he now lives, eighty acres of which is located in section 32, Kellogg Township, and sixty-eight acres in section 5, Buena Vista Township. Until recently he owned three hundred and twenty acres in South Dakota, which he has now disposed of. His home place has been well improved and is very skillfully managed, and he carries on general farming and stock raising in a successful manner, making a specialty of breeding an excellent grade of stock.

Mr. Newell was married on January 3, 1909, to Christine Paulson, who was born in Kellogg Township, this County, September 3, 1878, the daughter of Hans M. and Pauline (Tygersyn) Paulson, both born in Denmark. They were the parents of ten children, seven of whom are living, namely: Helena Marie, Nelse R., Christine, wife of Mr. Newell of this review; Lena, Andrew, Catherine is deceased; Charley Martin, Henry is deceased, and one child died in infancy.

Politically, Mr. Newell is independent, and he belongs to the Methodist Church.
