Last Thursday afternoon A. D. Newland, one of the most prominent farmers of the county answered the final summons. His death had been expected for some months, but with the news of his passing there was genuine and heartfelt grief among all the people of the community, for Mr. Newland was universally respected. Coming to the county shortly after it was organized, located on a homestead west of the city, Mr. Newland has been very active in affairs through much of the county's history. Mr. Newland was a man of irreproachable character. Honest in his dealings, open-minded in his judgements, and earnest in his convictions, he lived an exemplary life. In his young manhood, he served as a soldier in the Confederate army, but when victory was rested with the north he acquiesced in the results and no one could have been a more loyal citizen of the republic. He was an honorary member of the G. A. R.

Mr. Newland was an active member of the First Congregational church of this city. He also was a prominent democrat in politics being a familiar figure at party conventions and gatherings.

Funeral service were conducted from the First Congregational church last Saturday afternoon, the stores closing during the hours of service in tribute of respect to Mr. Newland. The church was filled with his old friends and neighbors. The members of the G. A. R. attended in a body and it was an impressive sight to see them stand in a line at the conclusion of the service while the casket was borne to the hearse, paying a silent tribute to a man once a foe in arms but now a friend.

Andrew S. Newland was born in Crab Orchard, Lincoln County, Kentucky, on October 19, 1844 and died in Ritzville on July 27, 1916, aged 71 years, 9 months and 8 days. In 1856 the family emigrated to Missouri at the beginning of the Civil War and Mr. Newland and his two brothers enlisted in the Confederate army, one brother named John having been killed at the battle of Alatonna Georgia.

In Cape Girardeau county, Missouri, in 1880 occurred the marriage of Mr. Newland and Fannie Hickman, the couple coming to Adams county in 1884. Five children survive, three sons and two daughters. They are Mrs. John Truax, Miss Emma Newland and Robert, Hickman and Charles.
