    In 1918, Newton was farming in Navarro County, Texas.  The name of his wife is given as Bertie Brundrett.  The name of Bertie Reddit is confirmed by numerous family gnenealogies as the name of Isaac Sr's first wife.  Bertie died in 1929.

    Their third child was born in Texas, Nellie Louise, born 31 May 1917, in Rural Run, Navarro County, Texas.  They did not stay in Texas long.  In 1920, Isaac and Bertie are back in Arkansas, this time in the center of the state in the capital, Little Rock.

    In 1923 and 1929, Isaac and Bertie were listed in the Little Rock City Directory.  Isaac and his wife Bertie are listed at the same address with Isaac Sr's widowed father and their son Isaac Jr, all at the same address.

    The next instance is 1930 in Little Rock, in Pulaski County, Arkansas.  In Little Rock there are 4 other people in his household with widowed Isaac Sr, Isaac Jr, and two daughters, Catherine Smith age 19, and Nellie Brundrett age 12.  Catherine's daughter Betty L, age  2, is also living in that household.

    Note that this genealogy reports that Newton was born in Navarro County, where he was living in 1918 when he registered for the draft.  However, this is an error, since public records establish his presence in early life with his family in Independence County, Arkansas.

    It seems likely he was born in Independence County, Arkansas.  His presence in Navarro County, Texas, is only related to a later short period in Texas, and he was back in Arkansas 2 years later.  Independence County is in the east area of Arkansas.

    Isaac was in his brother's household in 1900 for the census in Yell County Arkansas, and that census reports him born in Arkansas. In 1910, when his son Isaac Newton Jr was age 1, he and his first wife Bertie Redditt were in Yell County in west central Arkansas.  Newton married Dora Price in 1935 and they had one son named Corwin Roger.
