Note: From page 81 of the Jenkins Book Among the letters written by Newell Sill Jenkins is one dated June 20, 1917 sent to Hildreth (Smith) and William Robinson Brown upon the occasion of the birth of their son, Newell Brown, my contemporary: "With all our hearts we rejoice in your happiness that unto you a son is born. May he be worthy of his ancestry! "The name you have chosen for him has come through five generations to reach him. Dr. Mark Newell was the great grandfather of Rob's mother (Emily Hart Jenkins). Her mother Phebe Bishop was left an orphan in her early childhood, and her two grandfathers, Dr. Mark Newell and the Rev. Elijah Sill, two well known personages in Connecticut in Colonial and Revolutionary times, adopted her and cared for her education, and brought her up in the nature and admonition of the Lord. In gratitude and reverence my mother gave me the names of her honored grandparents and so one of them has come to your precious gift of God. "May his blessing abide with the child and his parents for evermore. Your affectionate Uncle Newell" __________________________ Hall, Mary A. Newell, Thomas Newell Who Settled in Farmington, Conn., And His Descendants, (Southington, Conn., Cochrane Bros., Book and Job Printers: 1878). Page 147. "He was a physican, and lived for a time at Guilford, Ct. In 1786 he removed to the northern part of Southington, on a place consisting of a small dwelling house and eight acres of land he had bought of Ashbel Gridley. On this place he afterwards built a commodious dwelling house, where he remained during his life. Dr. Newell commenced practice at Guilford, where his first child was born. From thence he removed to North Branford, where he resided until after the birth of his third child. Phebe Sill, his first wife, was born May 27, 1756, and was highly educated at Litchfield. His practice was never large, and most of his time was spent in farming. Dr. Newell entered the army as a private, and afterwarads assisted Dr. Theodore Wadsworth, in the Revolutionary War, probably acting as apothecary's clerk and aiding in surgical operations. He studied with Dr. Potter, of Wolcott, and practiced with Dr. Baldwin, of New Milford."
