Family History

Wow! What a family history! This house was owned by J.O. (Ollie) Newton (1870-1960), one of 10 children and a lumberman for more than seven decades. Ollie started in the lumber business at age 20 as driver of an oxen team for the Flowers & Peagler Lumber Company. In 1901 , he became logging superintendent for the  Henderson Lumber Company. His job was to keep the mills supplied with the logs. He got paid $2.25 a day, sun up to sundown, six days a week.  In 1920,  Ollie built this home for his family, wife Mabel, and children,  Mildred, Cora, James and Mae. As adults, all four of the kids had homes with 100 yards of their parents’ on South Park Street. Is that cool, or what?
