Newton County, Indiana
In May of 1997, this project was organized by Jeff Murphy, using the established KY Biographies Project as a model. State coordinators were sought to set up their own state project. They were offered the system design and tools created for the KY project, but were free to set up their project in any way they chose. I am Kathy Huish and I am the coordinator for the Newton Co., Indiana Biographies. Volunteers are needed to enter, edit, and archive the biographies for each project.
If you have biographies you would like to donate for Newton County please contact me. If you would like to volunteer to coordinate a county biography project please contact the Indiana State Biography Coordinator Deb Murray

Help this page grow by submitting a Newton Co Biography today..please put "Newton Co Bio" in the subject line.

I would like to give special thanks to Gerald Born who has spent many hours transcribing biographies. Without him there would only be a few bios here. Thank you!
