House History

Here is what we know about the history of the house that we purchased:

Newhall homestead

"Home of Arthur Newhall"

Lynville Stanton Newhall (1837-1909) married Sarah E. Jodrie (1851-1933).  They were both originally from Nova Scotia.  They had two children, Arthur Wendall Newhall (1879-1968) and Adeline M. Newhall (1882-1962).

Lynville Newhall built the house circa 1900.  In 1903 his son Arthur married Nellie Taylor Sawyer(1878-1954).   They had two children, Helen Phyllis (born 1907) and Virginia M. (1913-1978).

Upon Lynville’s death in 1909 he willed the house to his son Arthur.  Arthur was a farmer and milk dealer.  He lived there with his maiden-aunt sister Addie, his Mother Sarah and his wife and two daughters.

Arthur transferred the house in September 1968 to Donald and Ruth Crews, a month before he died of pneumonia.
