Philip Newton was from Bristol, Gloucestershire. His parents died when he was young. He went to the USA with his guardian, WIlliam Lewis, and gradually migrated his way West to Iowa. . gave rise to a large family. Thanks to an obit sent to me by one of his descendants, we know his father's name to have been Richard. We've looked through published baptism records for Gloucestershire and Somerset, without success. Being a big port, Bristol attracted people from beyond the neighbouring counties. Does anyone recognize that name: Philip Newton Howes?
Please see Philip's record here for more details of him and his family:
