Newman C. Blood

Constitutional Delegate. Born: 1818, Bolton, Vermont.

The older brother of James Blood, Newman C. Blood also was born (circa 1818) in Bolton, Vermont. A widower at the time he was chosen as one of Douglas County's seven delegates to the Wyandotte Convention, Blood had removed to Kansas from Wisconsin in 1857 and died in Lawrence on October 21, 1870. He served on the legislative department, ordinance and public debate, and finance and taxation committees at the 1859 convention, but compared to his younger brother, N.C. Blood was virtually silent during the course of the convention's formal proceedings.
