*1/10/2000-Email from K.P. Neuforth, Great Bend, Kansas
First, I want to compliment you on the wonderful job you're doing with the Monroe Co. GenWeb site. Great information!
I was quite interested to find the photos and information on the Newfarth Farm Cemetery on the site. I'm a member of the Kansas branch of this family, descended from a brother of the Henry Newfarth buried there. According to information passed down in the family, besides Henry and Sophia (Grossmann) Newfarth (Neufarth/Newforth/Neuforth) and their daughter Henrietta, one of Henry's brothers and his wife are also buried in the cemetery:
b. ca. 1841, Franklin Twp, Ripley Co, IN
m. 21 Sept 1865, Ripley Co, IN
d. 2 Dec 1869, Guilford Twp, Monroe Co, IA
His wife -
Caroline (Miller) Neufarth
d. 16 Feb 1872, near Hiteman, Monroe Co, IA
Their son George Neufarth, Jr., is listed on your 1935 pension lists,
as is his wife Emma (Matthews)
1. Anna Mary (1866-1962);
m. (1) Audas White; m. (2) Arthur Walker.
Henry and Sophia (Grossmann) Newfarth were both born in Franklin Twp,
Ripley Co, IN, and were married there 18 March 1865. Henry was the son
of Johann Philipp and Anna Marie (Michel) Neufarth; Sophia was the daughter
of Joseph and Barbary (Bakel) Grossmann.
