Ebenezer "Ebb" Newton, son of Allen Newton and Elizabeth (no surname known), was born in May 1838 in North Carolina, and Nancy Jane Jones, eldest daughter of Shedrick Jones and Nancy Jane King, was born September 1843 in Missouri.

Ebenezer and Nancy Jane married on August 8, 1858 in Iron Co., Missouri and moved to Marion Co., Arkansas around 1878, homesteading 160 acres in White River township in 1889.

Ebenezer served in Col. Schnabel's Battalion, MO Cavalry and applied for a pension in 1911; Nancy applied for a pension in 1912, after Ebenezer's death. Ebenezer died around December 1911 (possibly December 16, 1911 or January 4, 1912), and Nancy died on January 7, 1920. Nancy is buried Wildcat cemetery Jimmie's Creek, Marion Co, AR, grave 301, though "Genealogies of Marion Co." lists her burial place as Flippin cemetery. I'm not sure which is correct.
