James E. Newbern and Mary Ellen Whitson had a son Copeland Newbern and they were in Curituck County in the Knotts Island area. Can you add anything that may tie this family to Copeland Davis Newbern. The two Copeland's were about the same age. Thanks Dale santaman@ezy.net

James E's second wife was Sarah Doskey Wilder daughter of Thomas R and Minerva Elizabeth Ricks Wilder. She married my grandfather after James's death. Her children by James was Sumler, Grace, Nitor, and Ellington. She was my grandmother and she died in 1940. Later married John C. Dough before her death.

Newbern is not a direct line of mine but since it is a collateral line, I do have some information.

Walton Worth Newbern was b. 5 Apr 1850 at Powells Point, Currituck Co., NC and d. 26 Dec 1912, same location. He married Virginia Caroline "Jennie" Harrison 2 Feb 1871 in Currituck Co. She was born 26 May 1851 in Powells Point and died 14 May 1914 in same location. They are both buried in the Olds-Newbern Cemetery, Highway 158, Currituck Co., NC. This information is in the Currituck Co. Cemetery Book. I have nine children listed for them.

Walton Worth Newbern was the son of John "Jackie" & Mary Margaret "Peggy" Woodhouse both of Currituck Co. I have ten children listed for them.

If you need more information on this line, you can email be directly at jfstms - at - bellsouth.net (naturally change the at to the symbol @).

I am interested in any info you have on the Newbern/Harrison line. My family descends from Samuel P. Scott, of Currituck Co (1830-1878) and includes Newbern/Harrison/Payne families as well. I also noted Copeland used as a middle name several generations back so there might be an additional connection.
