First Generation

1. Charles Holman1 Newburn was born in Martinsville,IN May 23,1861. Charles died Sep.05,1938 in Altamont,Effingham Co.,IL, at 77 years of age.

He married Mary Mahalie Anspach in Effingham Co.,IL, May 10,1883.(795) Mary was born in Shelbyville,IL Feb.3,1863. She was the daughter of Solomon Leslie Anspach and Ellen Leffler. Mary died Jan.03,1940 in Altamont,Effingham Co.,IL, at 76 years of age. Charles & Mary Mahalia had a farm near Altamont,IL. but Moccasin was the closest town. The farm had all of its original 1830's log structures when they purchased it, including smithy forge & tools. The house was updated with clapboard over the logs. Josephine Goyke & Jacqueline Ryan wrote in the book Anspachs & Lefflers that Sarah Ryan & her children loved going to see Aunt Mary Mahalia in the 30's & 40's... After Charles & Mary M.'s deaths, the youngest daughter purchased their farm, and a few years after that oil was discovered there.
Sharon Grigsby sent this update (4/22/04): "I'm not sure what the official status of the property was, but I do know that my grandfather, Cassie Albert and his wife, Ellen, lived there together until my grandfather died. A short time later, my father, Paul, moved into the residence with my grandmother and he lived there until he died.
As far as the oil well-sounds great, but I don't beleive that they ever made over $300.00 or $400.00 a month when it was producing at it's best. Some of the mineral rights had been sold long before the well was drilled and it never was a large producer." (So Rose Marie must have sold the farm to Cassie Albert Newburn, or the original info. was in error..ymw, my note)
