Would like to hear from anyone who knew my grandparents
Lura Allen Newman or W. Newman (think his first name was
William?). My grandmother delivered a lot of babies; I've
been told that everyone called "Aunt Lurie" when they were
"due." She lived in a small community near Freestone called
Cedar. In later life, she moved to a little house in Teague, Texas
and attended church at 8th Avenue Baptist. I went there also
when I was a little girl and Brother McKissack was the pastor.
I'm now 74 years old and live in San Antonio.

Billie....

I am looking at all the MILLER's in the Freestone, Leon, etc. counties in that area trying to find who my gr-aunt married... She was Frances (Fanny) Nichols b.1874 married a MILLER. Her parents lived in Leon county TX. So I have done sone research on your MILLER and NEWMAN line... I think.

Anyway, here is what I believe might be your line, if not yours maybe it will help someone else:

I have a Lenora Newman born in Temple, Texas in 1910.

Her parents were Will Newman b. 1874, unknown, and Nora Hall, b.1877, unknown.

Could she be out of this Newman line?

I am have been researching the Newman Family of Freestone County for my aunt, Lura A. NEWMAN Chamberlain. Her father was Joseph William Newman, son of Oliver Newt Newman & Lura Allen, and is a brother to your mother Mattie Bell. I am sure my aunt would love to hear from you, so please contact me.

Sincerely,
Sue Mason

Sue and others researching NEWMAN in Freestone County. Can anyone supply info on Mary A. Newman, born l820 in Miss. She was listed in the Freestone census of l880 with a son, Joseph Sellers, age l4.

Also in the household were G. Sanford, age l7, Cherry A. Sanford, age l2 and Elizabeth Sanford, age l0...grandchildren. All these people list their father's birthplace as Alabama.

Mary A. Newman is buried in Old Zion Cem in Freestone Co....along with several people named Martin, Sellers and others. Will exchange information.
