Hi;
I am the great grandaughter of George Anson Newberry and Julia Adeline McFadden. She went by the name Adeline. Their daughter Phoebe Anna Betsy Jane Newberry married Jay Thomas Harrison and they were my Grandparents. Great grandma Adeline was a midwife and she taught my Grandma the trade and since my Grandma Phoebe just lived a quarter mile down the road from us on the farm, she delivered me at home in our farm house. My mother is the youngest of Phoebe and Jays children. My mother will be 84 years old in August 2014. She is the only surviving child of theirs. Grandma Phoebe moved into Tisdale, Sask in 1956 and lived just across the railroad tracks from us until her death on Dec.05th 1977. Approximately 10 years ago my mother found out that she had a cousin who was black and lived in the united States. He came out to Saskatchewan to meet my mother, Irene Butt and some of the other relatives. My mother doesn't remember his name, but her cousin Karen Sharp(the daughter of uncle Roy Newberry, his real name was Leroy,the son of George and Adeline Newberry) might remember his name. I remember Mom saying that he was a preacher.I am thinking that he is the son of James Newberry, Georges brother.I would be more than willing to share whatever information I have on the family . If you would like to contact me you can e-mail me at donandvelma@hotmail.com
