The Chariton Leader, Chariton, Iowa
Thursday, June 7, 1906

An event worthy of note was celebrated at the JOSEPH PARKINS home in Union Township. This was the fiftieth anniversary of the landing of the PARKINS and NEWSOME families in America. The NEWSOME family consisted of five sons and four daughters, the late wife of JOSEPH PARKINS being a NEWSOME. JOHN NEWSOME, who preceded the balance to the United States two years, died in Chariton, a few months since. WRIGHT NEWSOME resides in Union Township and the other brothers at Chester, Pennsylvania, where they all first settled, MR. PARKINS coming to Lucas County some 28 years ago.

There were present on the occasion last Saturday almost twenty-five of the relatives. The loyalty of this family to its adopted country is interesting. Of the five NEWSOME sons, four of them bore arms for the Union during the civil conflict between the north and south, and also the husbands of the four daughters. In peace they have ever been good citizens, lovng their native land none the less but America more.
