WILLIAMS, S. Newt - {from Gravette} S.N. Williams, better known as "Uncle Newt," is dead. He had been sick several days from infirmities and after a struggle, first seeming to improve then to get worse, he passed away Friday Dec. 6th at the age of 71 years. Mr. Williams was born near Bentonville March 27th, 1836, being the oldest son of Ambrose Williams, and of a family of 22 children. His father, above mentioned, built the first log cabin on the site where Bentonville now stands, and also was among the first county and circuit clerks of Benton county. Uncle Newt has lived for forty years on the Spavinaw farm where he died and with the exception of six years in Texas and two years in Missouri has spent his life in Benton county. He formerly owned Gravette townsite, before the town was started. He served with the boys in gray in the 2nd Cherokee Regiment under Col. Stand Watie, and saw Price's army retreat. He married three times and leaves a wife and little girl, besides several grown children by former marriages, some of whom were with him when death came. Uncle Newt will long be remembered as a good, honest citizen but another landmark of the past has gone. He was a consistent church member and an Odd Fellow holding membership with a Centerton lodge, which took part in laying the body to rest Saturday afternoon at Bethel cemetery.
