I lived in Newark as a child. It was many years ago. The population was about 400 then. My Grandparents house is gone, but my church and school are both there.
We fell in love with Newark...we pastor The Message of the Cross Church 101 S. Ottawa Rd. Newark... We preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ and Him Crucified-The Message of the Cross...Sunday 10am, 7pm, Wednesday 7 pm... Come and Worship with us and Be Blessed....Pastor Brian and Sherry
I meant to add that gpa frostys parents were jesse & mabel hill (courtright). The parents had been farming the edgerton place near newark, then moved to newark where gpa went to school for two months then they moved near oka, montana in the spring of 1917
My gpa frosty (forrest) hill went to school here about 1915-1917 when he was in the 1st & 2nd grade. He had a 19 y.o. teacher but the class was large, she wasnt very well trained and gpa was almost deaf so he had trouble in school.
I love Newark so much visit almost every summer and stay with my Aunt Gina Mathre such a cute town hoping to take my husband and newly born daughter there this summer and maybe soon move there great town!!♥
Hi, I lived in Newark in 1998-1999, I graduated in NCHS in 99, I lived with the Fosen's family, Linda Fosen, Sarah Fosen Maddux , DuB Fosen, and John the father. I made real good friends, that I'm still in touch with them. I had the oportunity to come back in 2009, and went to NCHS, to see some teachers and to feel that amazing air again. I will be back always to keep that amazing family and friendly air alive. I love the town, and now I will be back to take my soon to meet the place that I will never forget.
