Pioneer of Newhall Passes Away


George Campton, one of the pioneer citizens of Newhall, passed away recently in Los Angeles at the age of 83.

Mr. Campton located at Saugus the former site of Newhall about 50 years ago and ran a store which was moved here when the town moved. This was the first store in Newhall. Later he was appointed postmaster, an office which he held for many years.

Mrs. Campton was Miss De Soto of San Francisco and came from an old Spanish family.

The Camptons were very generous and thru them many needy persons received assistance.
