More Cantrils of Iowa: Neuton, Newton

Can anyone help me sort out the 2 Newton Cantrills of the Iowa Cantril/Cantrells? (Not Newton Strange Cantril b 1833 of Ohio who died in Afton, Iowa, and whose brothers FA and SF migrated to Washington).

Both mystery Newtons were born abt 1859-1860.

On the 1880 census one Newton is in DeMoines, living with a Thomas Cantril (30 years older, a father or uncle?), both potters. The other is in Cantril (Van Buren), farming, married to Annabelle, who is sick. Both say their fathers were born in Indiana, although I thought Lemuel Wesley Cantril (b 1827 in Ohio), another brother of FA SF and Newton Strange, was the father of one of these.

Help, please?

Newton married to Annabelle was the son of Lemuel Wesley Cantril. Newton L Cantril living with Thomas I haven't figured out either. Melissa
