Narrative

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.
