JOHN H. NEWTON was born in Garrard county, Ky., March 9, 1827. He was
raised up by a pious Methodist mother. But being converted under the
ministry of Nelson Alspaugh, he united with the Baptist church, at
Scaffold Cane, in Rockcastle county, in 1858. He was ordained to the
ministry, in 1859. He spent much of his time, preaching in the
mountains, often laboring in connection with that noble man of God, N.
B. Johnson. He was never married, and being of a very cheerful
temperament, some of brethren thought he indulged too much in levity.
But the Lord used him to good account. He was killed by the explosion of
a stem boiler, April 14, 1878.

Newton Alspaugh Johnson
