Hi Amy, I am posting the information that I presently have on John Newman Sr.Please understand that I have copied this information from the best resources that I could find but have not personally proven any of it.My direct family line is that of John Newman Sr.'s brother Thomas Newman.One of my goals is to prove that Thomas and John are indeed brothers and then I hope to discover how they ended up in Fleming County Kentucky together.If you have any information about how John Sr. ended up in Kentucky I would appreciate your sharing it.I might add that over the past few years I have corresponded with many Newman researchers and most of them have at one time or another placed important information in this forum.If you have not researched this Forum in depth I recommend that you do.If you look specifically for notes by Kenneth Newman, David Newman (Not me), John Newman, Robert Newman and others, there is much to learn.The following is what I have on John Newman Senior:
Descendants of John Newman Sr.

Notes for JOHN NEWMAN SR.:

Name: John Newman
My wife, Elizabeth My brother, Ezekiel My father, Henry My brother, Simon My unborn infant My brother, Thomas Witnesses: James Maston and Benedict Howell Written: 28 January 1817 Probated: March 1817
In 1800 a John Newman appears on the Tax list of Mason County, Kentucky.When Fleming was cut off from this county, the name Newman was dropped from the Mason records.This information was sent to me by email from Ken Newman who is a very dedicated Newman family researcher.
