Trying to identify parents of James Newell bc1795, possibly Mecklenburg Co. James married Sarah Boyd, dau of Robert and Temperance (Pittman) Boyd of Mecklenburg Co. Robert Boyd family, his sons-in-law James Newell and William Kizziah, and brother-in-law, Matthew Pittman, Jr., settled in Tuscaloosa Co., AL in early 1830s. My suspect is Peter Newell m-2nd Polly Simpson in Mecklenburg Co. who name "younger children" Simpson, James, Betsey, Robert, George Washington, and Thomas in his will. There were my James and a George nearby on the 1840 Tuscaloosa Co.census. Simpson, Robert, and Thomas are thought to have gone to GA. My Newell line is stuck here!!
