Sarah Eliza Newman, dau of Nathaniel Newman and Esther Frost, born 1816 in NY; married Abner Bailey, born 1813 in NY. It's believed that Sarah was the second-cousin of Robert Birmingham of Duplain, Clinton County, MI roughly 1854 till death in 1883. Does anybody know anything about this Newman-Birmingham connection? Newman appears as given name in later generations. Sarah and Abner Bailey lived in Clinton, Gratiot and Isabella counties, MI. Sons: Sylvester, James, Andrew, Wilbur, Benjamin; daughter Charlotte Smith. Thank you.
