William Henry Newton
(23 Mar 1853 - 8 Mar 1932)

W. H. Newton was born in Pennsylvania but most of his working life was in Texas. From 1900 on he worked in Houston but before that he had studios in the towns of Italy, TX, and Milford, TX, closer to Dallas, TX, than Houston. Since the small towns didn’t have city directories in those days, his years of operation in those areas come from other sources.

His son Leslie Terrence Newton was born 1883 in Spirit Lake, Iowa.
His son Archie C. Newton was born 1886 in Texas. (Town unknown)
His son William Henry Newton, Jr. was born 1889 Garrett, TX.
His son Corley Elton Newton was born 1892 in Italy, TX.
His earliest appearance in Houston, TX is the city directory of 1900.

Milford, Garrett and Italy, TX, all in Ellis County, are all less than 20 miles from each other.

His years of operation in Milford and Italy, TX, must have been between 1883 and 1899.

The card with the deckled edges is probably the latest of the four here.
