Narrative

From a book
published in 1917 called "A standard history of Georgia and Georgians,
Volume 6" By Lucian Lamar Knight.

John Oliver Newell. It has frequently been said of Mr. Newell that he
is a born lawyer. His early inclinations and manifestations of talent
pointed to that profession and with a liberal training he has
developed his powers so as to justify all the expectations of success
with which he was favored at the outset of his career, He is one of
the leading attorneys at Carrollton and the Coweta Circuit, is an
alert and public spirited leader, and has found hosts of friends in
all the walks of life and commands respect from all his associates.

John Oliver Newell was born in Carroll County, Georgia, May 8, 1879, a
son of William L. and Fannie E. (Teal) Newell. His mother died in
1913. She was the daughter of William and Emma (Bowdon) Teal. The Teal
family came from South Carolina in 1840 and settled in Pike County,
Georgia, whence a few years later William Teal went to the Mexican
war, and was for many years a prominent farmer. He died at the age of
sixty-five. His wife. Emma Bowdon, was of a prominent family in whose
honor the Village of Bowdon is named. Mr. Newell's mother was born in
Pike County, Georgia.

Alfred Newell, grandfather of the Carrollton lawyer, was a native of
Virginia, but in early manhood settled in South Carolina and in 1847
came to Georgia, his first home being in Carroll County and
subsequently removing to Douglas County. He died at the extreme age of
one hundred and five years in Douglas County, where he had for many
years been a farmer. Mr. Newell comes of long-lived stock and his
maternal grandparents both lived to be ninety years old. Alfred Newell
had four children. Robert Newell, the oldest, was a soldier in the
Confederate army and is a Baptist preacher and farmer. Benjamin
Newell, who became a Confederate soldier at the age of fifteen, was
taken prisoner soon after he enlisted, was confined for some time in a
Michigan prison, and has since been a farmer. George Newell is also a
farmer. William L. Newell, the youngest of these four children, was
born in August, 1850, and was reared and educated in Carroll and
Douglas counties. His active years were devoted to farming, at which
he gained considerable success, and he is now living retired. One of
the strongest principles of his life and action and practice was a
fundamental belief in education, and he did all he could to train his
children for worthy citizenship. He and his wife were the parents of
eight sons, two of whom died in infancy. Herschell, the oldest, died
at the age of twelve years; the second was John O.; Lovett L. is now
in the automobile business at Albany, Georgia; Carl V. is in the same
business at Cordele: Robert E. D. is general manager and
superintendent of a large ranch in Arkansas; Eula O. is a student at
Dahlonega College.

John Oliver Newell grew up on a farm, attended the public schools,
graduated from the Villa Rita High School, and in 1903 took his degree
in law at the University of Georgia. For the past twelve years he has
given himself without reserve to the practice of his profession in
Carrollton. While well known for his abilities as a pleader before
court and jury, he is likewise considered one of the closest students
of law in Carroll County. He has formed some important connections,
and is attorney for the Georgia Railway & Power Company, attorney for
the First National Bank of Carrollton, and attorney for the Mandeville
Mills of Carrollton. He has also served as city attorney.

Mr. Newell is a deacon in the Presbyterian Church, an active democrat,
has taken the principal degrees in Masonry and is affiliated with the
Mystic Shrine, and also belongs to the Knights of Pythias, the
Independent Order of Odd Fellows and the Benevolent and Protective
Order of Elks.

On October 28, 1908, at Carrollton, Mr. Newell married Miss Camilla
Maud Mandeville. a daughter of Leroy Clifton and Emily Caroline
(Richardson) Mandeville. Her father is one of the leading business men
and financiers of Carroll County, organized and is president of the
First National Bank of Carrollton, the oldest and strongest
institution of the kind in the county, and is also president and
incorporator of the Mandeville Cotton & Oil Mills. Mr. and Mrs. Newell
have two children, both of whom were born in Carrollton. Marian was
born September 28, 1909, and Richardson was born November 29, 1910.
