Looks like he died in the Civil War

Newton Hazleton

 in the U.S., Civil War Draft Registrations Records, 1863-1865

Record Image View

    Name: Newton Hazleton
    Birth Year: abt 1837
    Place of Birth: Indiana
    Age on 1 July 1863: 26
    Race: White
    Marital Status: Married
    Residence: Prairie, Henry, Indiana
    Congressional District: 5th
    Class: 1
    So it looks like her parents might be Sarah Caroline Powers and Manning J. Smith.
    What a team! Now, will we ever hear back from the person who posed the original question?
    Who cares? That was fun!!!!
    And this is probably Sarah C Powers with parents and siblings in Henry Co., Indiana in 1850 census.  

    I love the name of Sarah's father: Staunton Powers, b abt 1812 in Virginia. Couldn't find anything further about him. There is a Staunton, Virginia which I believe is named after someone named Staunton. Perhaps Staunton Powers' mother was a Staunton by birth...
    A very interesting story that we uncovered.

    I like it.

    It seems like Tusa M. Robbins is Addie Robbins. Identical birth and death days.

    Very odd ("Tusa"), given everything else we are finding.
    Thanks, Frank!
    Since Tusa M Robbins appears on the same tombstone as W E Robbins (William Lee Robbins) and Tusa was born the same day, month and year as Addie in the original question, both were born in Indiana and died the same day in Johnson county, MO, it would seem that Addie is the same person as Tusa M Robbins.

    Did not find Addie Robbins' parents, but her husband's father is buried in the same cemetery.

    It would be interesting to know if Henry Robbins served with Newton Hazelton...
