Thank you so much for you information.
I do not see any connection either, but here is what I have.
My GG Father was George Washington Newman, I have traced him back to his dod but can find no record of his marriage or birth.
They seem to have been in philia pa that far back.
I did have one lead He was a member of the Odd Fellows (like Masons) but the records we lost in a flood that Pa had.
John Henry My g uncle was a brick layer and also worked putting brick linings inside hugh furnace"s.As iI said he traveled in his work and married a southern lady.He never to my knowledge return to the Pa until sometime before or after his death. He is buried in the family Plot.
He did have one son Frank the one that buried him.
My name is Helen Salzmann
I lived Alabama for about 8 years. Baldwin Co.
My late husband has family there.
Thank you again. It is nice to talk to people interested in the Newman Family.
