Penelope,  I have found the same article in 2 different newspapers in Colorado in which the Governor has appointed persons, in particular, Newark L Burton, as notaries public.  The article appears in:

Glenwood Post (Glenwood Springs, Garfield County), Dec 21, 1901

Basalt Journal (Basalt, Eagle County), Dec 28, 1901

Also, at the Colorado State Archives I found a Bar Admissions record for Newark L Burton of Arapahoe County; Dec 2, 1896
---file number 294, I believe it is located in the Supreme Court

If you want copies, send you email via pm.---Genealiza

First let me say, this man's birth years are all over the place.  I read the Denver census of 1900 and it could be construde to be Newark.  However, I took the wife from 1900 and looked her up in the subsequent census.  I have them in 1910 and 1920.  Haven't been able to find them in 1930 and since it is getting late, I'll just transcribe what I've found, excluding the 1900 census, since you've already looked at it.---Genealiza

Genealiza,

Thank you so much.  How did you find all that?

I am just about to PM you but wanted to thank you online.  Within less than 24 hours I have a load of new information, and such admiration for Rootschatters, but also for Newark BURTON - a lad from a family of joiners in N Yorkshire ends up a lawyer and a judge in the USA.

I have many more questions to answer, but Thank you so much.

In the 1910 Alaska census, I seem to be able to convince myself that the obscured occupation reads "Attorney at Law" for Newark and his lodger.

Which would fit.

I need to find a marriage for Newark and Emma.  Cannot find on Ancestry (including posh US subscription) but not sure if I am searching correctly.  The Alaska census implies they married circa 1894, after emigration.  I have looked in UK BMD and cannot find one there either.

Sadly it looks as if they had no living children.  But then who sent my father the In Memoriam card?

Incidentally I found many good pics of Juneau when Newark BURTON was there:

I put in Juneau and got 823 images.  There are other resourced there which might help.

Do you know when his wife died? Possibly she is the one who sent the in memorium card.

I am afraid that I know nothing of Emma, but the censuses seem to indicate that she was 10 years older than Newark, so I thought she might have died earlier than 1942.

NB I have just found a reference from The Alaska Daily Empire to him attending a buffet luncheon with Judge Jennings, over on the Ancestry/Rootsweb Alaska/Juneau board. 

How great this all is!
