More Cantrils of Iowa: Neuton, Newton

Surnames: Cantril, Cantrill, Cantrell
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?
