I am feeling pretty confident that Rebecca who married Jonathan Newman and gave birth to Jonathan Jr. and Rachel was a Meek.Several children have "Meek" for a given or middle name.
She was buried in York, South Carolina.I keep getting wind that Jonathan Newman, her husband, was from Cecil County, Maryland.I also hear of Adam Meek who married Jane Mitchell and had a Rebecca Meek, about 1745, who married a Scott.Jane Mitchell went to York, South Carolina, after Adam's death.
The facts seem to point to Rebecca Meek being related to Adam Meek of Cecil, Maryland.
Rebecca is known to have spent time in North Carolina with her husband Jonathan Newman; when he died, she went to York, South Carolina.Perhaps she went to York to stay with her sister-in-law/aunt Jane?
Nobody online has an answer about Rebecca Newman.I'm excited that I might be on to something nobody has ever figured out since Rebecca Newman was alive.
