I am also related to Sam & Sarilda Newman. They are my great grandparents. Cordia Ann Newman who married Jack Alvin Wilson is my grandparents. I think Sam Newman died June 21, 1890; Sarilda died 1936; I beleive their children names are: James, Henry, Leonard, Joe, Lee R., Lily, Tish, Cordia Ann, Arville [moved to Baltimore Maryland]. Sam is on a 1920 Census being born 1870 and died 1945. Some of the dates don't make sense because his marraige was before his birth. Some of the dates I have can't be right. But maybe they might give you some more clues. If you go on www.fsbeta.familysearch.org
you might find a census copy image to save for a record. If I find anything else I will let you know. I have a few pictures but not on disk, they are copies on printing machines.
