Town of Newton, Newton Township, Manitowoc Co., Wisconsin

Location: Take Silver Creek Road to So. 26th Street, then 0.2 miles south on So. 26th Street, on the west side of the road.
This cemetery is well cared for and is part of the Calvary Cemetery Association of Manitowoc. The church is long gone,
but the oldest stone dates back to 1821.
(note: this must have been mis-read because there were no settlers here at that early date.)
The original material was copied July 16, 1977, typed and proofread by Marcie Baer, member of the Manitowoc County
Old Cemetery Society. The site was revisited by Mitchell J. Hein in the summer of 1997.
Corrections and additions were made to this material on 30 August 1997.
