Florida Newsome Families....where did they come from?

Florida Newsome Families....where did they come from?

Hello fellow posters!

I am researching Newsome family lines in Florida to see if any of them connect to my lines.
There seems to be a whole lot of Newsom/ Newsome's in North, West and Central Florida and I would like to see how they might be related, even distantly with my Newsome lines. I descend from Isaac and Mary Dortch Newsome through their son John. John had two families in the Putnam County, Georgia area. I have lots of info on the children of his first wife, Martha Alford, but not a whole lot on the second wife, Martha Wards children. These may, or may not be the Newsome families who moved into Florida, but it's a start. I would be interested in Florida Newsom(e) connections even further back that connect eventually to William the Immigrant (b. @1614,Eng., m. Penelope Ramsey.)
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks sooooooooooooo much in advance.

Hi Sid:
I have a Holliday Newsom in my files, b. @1766,probably in Virginia. He was the son of Benjamin and Mary (Crawford) Newsom. Could this Holliday be a G GP of your Holliday?
Related in some other way?

Thanks,
Carl

Yeah,
We think Holliday#1 b1766 and Holliday #2 b-abt 1816-19 may be father and son based purely on circumstancial evidence. Never have found proof,name or place for marriage of H#1. There`s only mention of a son ,John for #1 who was a minor at his dads` death in 1819. So our link to #1 is iffy but we for sure link to # 2. His 1st wife Penina Edmondson and he had Marcus Lafayette 8-12 1837,James T.& John Hiram 4-10-1840,Margaret P. 4-2-1843,Robt. A.2-8-1845, Daniel Columbus(Dock)12-31-1848, then wed Matilda A.Trimble 1853, Wm. Henry 2-8-1851,W.A.9-6-1854, Sarah Alice 5-28-1857,Charley Hollis(My G-gpa)2-28-1864,Catherine Louise 2-19-1868,Penina,1870, C.A., Junius 1873 and P.L. 2-6-1874. Holliday #2 lived in Morgan,Polk,Paulding and Dekalb Cos. of Georgia. Holliday #1 came to Ga. with bros.Carter,Peter and John abt. 1789 from the Isle of Wight and Surry co.of Va. Their dad was Benjamin son of Thomas b-1685 Sid N.

Hello Patricia ;-)
I've only been able to trace the line from William & Penelope Ramsey, to James H.B. Beyond that there were no source records or citations anywhere that I could locate so I stopped looking into this line. If you have any documented descendants I would really wish to see what you have.
Our Newsom's were like lemming; all migrating together. A bunch of my direct line did this when they all went to Texas together.
Anyway, I'll look at your database and see what you've got.
Thanks soooooo much!
Please write back if you have any more thoughts! I would love to know more about Frederick, Ottis, Andrew & Henry!
