I came across your thread because I believe that I have two paintings/photographs of Lewis Putnam Newell and Caroline Webler Newell. They were painted/replicated by a Myrtle Hyde in 1973, but appear to be productions of "a 1860 rag doll". All this info is written on the back of the photos/pictures. My name is Kelly Beach and my dad acquired these from my grandparents. Thinking we were related to these people I looked into it however My grandma told me today that she aquired these from my great aunt (her sister) who is married to a Frank Niland and these are his relatives. We are not quite sure how the Newells are related to him, possibly through his mother Eva Mae. Frank Niland is from Cumberland, MD, which I read in your post was an area he Newells lived. Anyway, would be interested to know how Frank is related however I think that someone who is directly related should have these pictures. Let me know what you think and I'd be happy to mail them to you. I'll attach a photo here.
