Married ‎ Jul 15, 1852 at Madison Co., Kentucky (9 years married) to:

man William H. Newton‏‎, son of Samuel Newton and Kitturah "Cittarian Poats" Poates‏.
Born ‎ 1829 at Madison Co., Kentucky, died ‎ Apr 30, 1862 at Camp Halleck, Tennessee‎, 32 or 33 years, cause of death: Killed in the American Civil War, buried ‎ at Mills Springs National Cemetary
The KY Adjutant General's Report (US Vol. 1, 1866) confirms that William H. Newton served as a Pvt. in Co. G, 7th Ky. Inf. He enlisted 9/18/1861 at Camp Dick Robinson, and died 4/30/1862 at Camp Halleck, TN.
In the summer of 1861, Union authorities empowered U. S. Navy Lieutenant William "Bull" Nelson to recruit loyal men for the United States Army inside Kentucky. On July 15, 1861, Nelson arrived in Lancaster in Garrard County. He selected several men to raise regiments, one of whom was Theophilus Toulmin Garrard, a state senator and Mexican War veteran. Garrard (pronounced gar'-rud, with a hard g) began recruiting for his Third Kentucky Volunteer Infantry Regiment. State authorities soon changed the designation to the Seventh Kentucky, but the men who made up the regiment resented the change and often used the earlier number well into 1863.

Colonel Garrard collected his men at Camp Dick Robinson in Garrard County, rendezvous point for several regiments raised under Nelson. Here the men learned the rudiments of drill and suffered through shortages of food, uniforms, and other supplies. A measles epidemic added to their overall discomfort. On September 22, 1861, General George H. Thomas, later known as the Rock of Chickamauga, mustered the Seventh Kentucky into federal service. The 7th was the only three-year regiment from Kentucky to carry over 1,000 men on its roster.
During late 1861 and early 1862, the 7th was shifted several times within the organizational charts of the forces in eastern Kentucky, then commanded by Major General Don Carlos Buell. By spring, the regiment was part of Carter's 24th Brigade of General G. W. Morgan's 7th Division of the Army of the Ohio. Morgan concentrated his force at Cumberland Ford in preparation for an advance on Cumberland Gap. He brought in fresh provisions, including the first fresh meat the men of the 7th had tasted in months. An initial reconnaissance to the Gap resulted only in a small skirmish.
