Obituary - Washington Pennsylvania Daily Reporter, April 20, 1905

     John Newman, a respected citizen of Washington and a veteran of the War of the Rebellion, died last evening at his home on Brookside avenue after a protracted illness of dropsy. He was aged 84 years. Mr. Newman resided in Washington the greater part of his life where he was engaged at labor of various kinds. At the breaking out of the Civil war he enlisted in Company B, First Virginia cavalry, where he served with distinction until the close of the war. He served with bravery, it is stated, and never shrank from duty while in the service. After the war he returned to his home in Washington, where he has since resided. He was twice married, the second wife surviving. A son, Henry, died three or four years ago. Mr. Newman was a member of Wm. F. Templeton Post, G. A. R., and that organization will have charge of the funeral services to-morrow at 2 o'clock.
