    Sincere condolences on the passing of Ann. My parents were Alfred and Christine Daughtery. We visited Albert and Ann Newton when they lived in Brookfield when I was probably 5 to 10 years old with my brother Jim. The Daugherty’s are related to the Newtons but I can’t remember which relatives.
    Our dads sister was Mabel Andorf who just passed away last month in North Carolina. She was married to Bob Andorf My parents are buried at Oak Ridge Cemetery right next to Albert Newton. We will be there on Saturday June 21 to pay respects and meet all our long lost relatives. Sincerely, Matt and Kathy Furlong LaGrange Park, IL
