Newell Augustus King

Newell Augustus King was born 07 Jul 1873 in Orange County, VT. His father Seth Henry King had married His mother Emma Cady, a couple of years earlier. Emma was married before to Andrew Clark and had a daughter Belle Carrie Clark who lived with Seth and Emma at the time Newell was born.

Newell's mother died  in 1876, when Newell was only 2 years old. Emma was 26 when she died of 'Congestion of the lungs' on February 13th. In her obituary it stated the daughter of Seth and Emma had been adopted by someone out-of-town. I believe this refers to Belle Carrie Clark, who must have gone to live with someone in her father's family when her mother passed away.  In August of 1876 Seth remarried to Katherine Sophia Robinson, Seth and Katherine have 5 girls together, but Newell remained the only son Seth ever had.

Newell married Nellie Waters Dec 25 1903. She had been married before, to George William Earle. In February of 1904, the have a little girl, Clara Jane King. In August of 1905, they have a little boy, Clescent Henry King. In 1906, they have a bit of a family crisis.  Nellie was arrested for bigamy. Newell was arrested for adultery. It seems the lawyer Nellie had hired to do her divorce never actually got around to filing her papers. Therefore, she had never officially been divorced. They did get it all straightened out, and as soon as she was divorced from George Earle, Newell and Nelllie got married again in December of 1906.  Nellie died in May  of 1916, following surgical removal of her appendix.

In August of 1918, Newell married 15 year old Maxine Carpenter. She was one of 9 daughters born to her parents, Melissa Tyler and George W. Carpenter. She and Newell had 11 babies together.
