JOHN H. NEWTON was born in Garrard county, Ky., March 9, 1827. He was raised up by a pious Methodist mother. But being converted under the ministry of Nelson Alspaugh, he united with the Baptist church, at Scaffold Cane, in Rockcastle county, in 1858. He was ordained to the

ministry, in 1859. He spent much of his time, preaching in the mountains, often laboring in connection with that noble man of God, N. B. Johnson. He was never married, and being of a very cheerful temperament, some of brethren thought he indulged too much in levity. But the Lord used him to good account. He was killed by the explosion of a steam boiler, April 14, 1878.
