Re: John Newell Death Index

Hello Dawn.,
I have found and traced daughters Eliza, Esther, & Nettie; and sons John & James. I received Christopher's will exactly 105 years from the date it had on it. This helped a lot in finding where they all were.
I have never found a birth place for Esther in Ohio though, most likely they never registered it in Ohio.
I have found that Christopher married a 3rd time to Mary Heath (Davis) Snow, the widow of John Snow who died in Newton County, Indiana in 1878 (he had bought 28 acres of land for $100 in 1877, he sure did not have the time to enjoy it though. )
Christopher married Mary on April 26, 1881 in Manteno, Illinois; this was just 3 months after his second wife Hannah died on January 31, 1881.
I have yet to find the burial place of Christopher or Mary. He never mentioned any of John & Mary's kids in his will at all. (And I know now that his son John married her daughter Emma 11 months after they were married.)
Oh I did find out that there were a set of twins named Earl and Ernest and another son named Charles who died before the 1900 census for John & Emma. They were mentioned on their brother's book at his wake.
Thank you for all your help before.
