Miscellaneous Information (some fun stuff)

Newtown Church,  Photo of Congregation in late 1960's, with names. Thanks to Andy Rice for the submission!  - in regards to this photo: a note from Mike McClure Karen, it should be noted that the McClure’s of Marmac Farm are related to the Clarence McClure’s, the Lawrence McKinney’s and the Quirks. The McClure’s and McKinney’s have been Coal Creek neighbors since 1836 when the McKinney’s arrived in Fountain County joining the McClure’s who arrived in 1826. Oak Ridge Cemetery is located on the McClure/McKinney property line and is the home of many an esters from both families. The cemetery was maintained for decades by Pearce McKinney, and before him, his father Lawrence who restored the run down resting place after years of neglect. Lawrence and his bride, Alice Anderson McKinney, returned to Walnut Knoll in the late 30’s or early 40’s to farm when his father Glenn was no longer able. and since his passing my oldest son, Michael C. McClure has provided loving care to the cemetery.
