This family removed from Canada to Olean late 1870's, early 1880's where Joseph Newton worked in a general store. Family lore says there was an epidemic and a physician gave the wrong medication to several children, two of them who were Newtons who died from it. Josephine Newton married Elmer DeVere Baxter and lived in Emporium where they died in the 1940's. Any and all help appreciated..
