Harter, Newton Jasper                        Troy Times  8/2/1866                          Company I  71st OVI

 Died in Troy on the morning of July 28th after an illness of only four days, of inflammation of the bowels, Newton Jasper Harter, son of Jacob D. and Elizabeth Harter, in the 32d year of his age.

Mr. Harter has left behind him many earnest friends won by his genial and social qualities and he generous warm hearted manliness.  His young wife has the sympathy of all in her early and her heavy bereavement.

The funeral services on Sunday were conducted at his late residence by Rev. M. J. Miller, and were attended by a very large concourse.  The procession which followed his remains to the grave was probably the largest ever seen here.  It was headed by the Tippecanoe Aeolian Band and the Troy Brass Band – followed by the Odd Fellows of Troy, and delegation from Piqua, Tippecanoe, Addison, and other neighboring towns, and some seventy or eight carriages.
