  • Notes 
    • In a letter dated 13 March 1975 to her son Robert, Bertha (Newens) Snouffer reported:
      "Uncle Dick & Aunt Ciddie [Newens], John & Etna their two sons are buried in the Cemetery at Sterling Colo. John was their oldest son -- he had married but had asthma which finally was tuberclosis [sic] and came home to his parents in Colo. to die."

      In another (undated) report, she wrote:
      "John was married and lived in another state but he had asthma then T.B. and came out to Colorado because of the climate -- and died there -- Never knew his wife[;] have no idea what became of her. There were no children."
