Samuel Newell 1812 This summer I found a book published in 1830 containing the funeral message delivered for Samuel Newell's first wife Harriet Atwood Newell as well as excerpts from her journal and letters. She died at sea just 10 months after they were married in Nov. of 1812 on the Isle of France. I am interested to know more about her husband Samuel Newell as this is such a wonderful account of a couple so in love with each other and devoted to the cause of reaching India with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The life of this couple is such an inspiration, I would love to learn more about him. I was interested to see that he remarried 6 years later. I would like to find out about his life with his second wife and ministry to India. Thank you very much!
