His parents born in Germany
He was born in Romania
They spoke Yiddish
Dont know his first name, last name is Newman (I have also looked under Neuman, Neumann)
Married Sarah Coine (my great grandmother) in 1887 (I assume in Mound City, Pulaski County, Il)
Grandpa Newman died around 1900 per the 1900th census, which looks like the only factual one (although there could be mistakes)
Thats all I know about Grandpa Newman.
My great grandmother is Sarah Coine, born in England 1864, immigrated to US in 1872. Her parents born in Germany. I assume that since grandpa spoke yiddish that she did too, meaning they were all Ashkenazi Jews.
From 1900 I have no info except of a few kids that she had; and remember their names from my direct grandparents speaking of them.
There are no death cerficates, marriage certificates -- nothing -- I have tried every online source available -- not sure if there is an Org out here in California that I should call or Illinois since that is where they lived.
Thanks in advance
