SOURCE: A brief background of the Newbern cemetery from the Cemetery an d Death Records of Warren County, Iowa, by the Warren County Genealogica l Society, 1980. Joseph Howard was born March 9, 1796 in Tennessee. His f ather died before he was born. Joseph and his mother later lived in Illin ois, and when he was seventeen, Joseph enlisted in the Illinois Rangers f or the War of 1812. He first saw Iowa in 1813 during an expedition up th e Mississippi River against the Indians. Joseph vowed if the government e ver purchased Iowa from the Indians, he would go there.
Joseph Howard was married to Jennie McLilly on March, 1819. They had seve n boys and five girls.
In 1828 Joseph converted and joined the Cumberland Presbyterian Church. H e entered the ministry at the age of 21 & was a minister until 1860 whe n his health failed.
In the spring of 1835, Joseph Howard moved his family to Lee County, Iowa . He purchased 320 acres and they resided there for fifteen years. In 185 0 he sold his farm and emigrated to Warren County. He arrived in Octobe r and settled in White Breast Township. Over a period of time, he entere d 1200 to 1400 acres of land in Warren and Lucas counties.
In February, 1852, he moved onto 120 acres in Section 16 of White Breast . He built his home there and lived there until his death on February 2 , 1875. The town of Newbern was laid out by Ransom Davis in 1851, and h e built the first house. In 1853 Joseph Howard was in charge of the firs t post office which was just over the county line in Lucas County. Ther e were four cabins between Knoxville and Newbern and one between Newber n and Chariton. Rev. Howard lived west of the south corner of Newbern o n the south side of the road toward Lacona He started holding church meet ings in his home, which started the Cumberland Presbyterian Church on Oct ober 10, 1853. The church building was erected in 1857.
Legend says Joseph Howard started the Newbern Cemetery when he allowe d a traveler to be buried on his land west of Newbern. He had lived thre e miles west of Newbern before moving to Newbern. In Deed Book 5, page 17 9, Joseph Howard deeded to the trustees of Newbern Graveyard, the land o n September 30, 1871. A early burial in the cemetery was Peter A. Davis , who died September 30, 1852, at the age of 2 years, 6 months and 29 day s. The first death recorded in church records was that of Harvey Willough by, Jr. He died January 11, 1857 at the age of 1 year, 6 months and 25 da ys. By October 15, 1899, there had been twenty-five deaths. Graves of mem bers of the Mason and Riggs families were moved to Newbern Cemetery fro m their orchard.
The first recorded birth at Newbern was Jennett Francis Howard, September , 1854 The first marriage appears to be Rev. Joseph Howard's son James B . Howard marrying Nancy Riggs and Howard's daughter, Martha marrying Luth er Riggs. The double ceremony was performed in the Howard home in Lucas C ounty on December 31 1857.
The first board of ruling elders of Cumberland Presbyterian Church were J oseph H. Stewart, Samuel J. Howard and John T. Howard. The first deacon s were A.C. Cunningham and Luther Riggs. Fred Hunerdosse was a ruling Eld er for thirty years.
The United Brethren Church was organized on April 23, 1869. The first pas tor was R.S. Byrd. On the board were Phillip Newman, John Bonebrake, an d Enos C. Gunter The Methodist Episcopal Church was incorporated August 9 , 1856. On February 29, 1920, the M.E. Church, the U.B. Church and the Pr esbyterian Church united to become the Federated Church of Newbern. In 19 43 the building (formerly used by the Methodist Church) was destroyed b y a tornado. The community remodeled it and named it the Newbern Communit y Church.
Newbern reached it's peak of fifty residents in 1881.

SOURCE: A brief background of the Willis cemetery from the Cemetery an d Death Records of Warren County, Iowa, by the Warren County Genealogica l Society, 1980 When White Breast Township was organized in 1851, Henry W illis was elected constable. Anderson Willis, James Purcell [husband of A nderson's daughter Jincy], and Joseph Howard were elected trustees. Rev . Joseph Howard preached the first sermon for White Breast Township at th e home of Martin Willis.

Cemetery and Death Records of Warren County, Iowa, page 477 states: Rev . Joseph Howard, buried in Newbern cemetery is a veteran of the civil war . Researcher: Georgenia Stewart, 11 Nov 1989. (I think this is Joseph H oward (1834), the son, as Joseph Howard born 1795 would have been to ol d for the civil war.)

!MARRIAGE: Joseph Howard married Jinney McAliley on 23 Mar 1819, by J. S imms M.G., page 5 certificate 172. Source: Madison Co., Illinois Marria ge Records, fiche 6087835, #1, page 33. Researcher: Georgenia Stewart , 10-7-98.

Joseph Howard was about twelve years old when he arrived in Madison Count y, Illinois with his mother in 1809. A mere boy he served his country a s a Ranger in the war from 1812 to 1815 protecting then the settlements o f the Mississippi Valley. "The neighbors said that he killed several bear s and panthers in this neighborhood. The tree was pointed out to me wher e he shot the last panther, in 1818. He married Jane Jean McAlilly, the d aughter of Samuel McAlilly, in 1820, and built a cabin on a beautiful hil l now called Sonnenberg. Directly after our arrival I had the good fortun e to form the acquaintance of Joseph Howard. A truer and better man I nev er knew. Of his learning and preaching, I cannot judge, but this I know , his life was that of a true Christian. His wants were not great, and i t left him plenty of time to aid new comers in their early struggles, t o help them with rare disinterestedness by giving advice and assistance . When he heard of a neighbor's sickness, leaving him unable to attend t o his crops, you were sure to see Joseph Howard the next day in the sic k man's field plowing his corn or attending to his harvest, and in the ni ght waiting upon him. This he did regardless of any difference of religio n. It was enough for him to know of one of his fellow-men being in distre ss to hasten to the place to give relief and ease should it lay within hi s power." Rough and rude though the surroundings may have been the pionee rs were none the less honest, sincere, hospitable and kind in their relat ions. It is true as a rule and of universal application that there is a g reater degree of real humanity among the pioneers of any country than the re is among the inhabitants of a rich and populous country. If there is a n absence of refinement that absence is more than compensated by the pres ence of generous hearts and truthful lives. Neighbors generally did not e ven wait for an invitation or request to help one another in case of need . They came forward with as little hesitation as though they were all mem bers of the same family and bound together by the ties of blood. Histor y of Madison Co., Illinois, page 544.
