I'm trying to confirm the connection between my great-grandfather George Washington Freeman Newsome and William & Anne Sheppard Newsom of VA. I have names and dates that I have found on various family trees on the Internet, but I don't have any concrete sources. I am concentrating my efforts right now on James and Peter, but would love info on anyone in this line.
I would appreciate any information, but especially sources including wills; certificates of birth, death, or marriage; land records, letters, etc.
This part of the line as I have found it so far is this: William Newsom (c 1648-1691 VA) m. Anne Sheppard Robert Newsom (c 1681-1757 VA) m. Elizabeth Robert Newsom (b 1710-20 VA) m. Elizabeth Benjamin Newsom (1740-1800 VA) m. Mary Crawford Peter Newsom (c. 1757 VA - 1805 GA) m. Rhoda White/Wilhite James Newsom (1795-1840 GA) m. Elizabeth "Eliza" Wilhite George Washington Freeman Newsome (1843-1900 GA) m. Mildred "Millie" S. (last name may be McPherson)
Obviously some of this info is incorrect, since GWF's birth date is well after James died.
I have two Robert Newsoms here, but Rudy Nothdurft's book lists only one generation between William and Benjamin.
I have a good bit of information on GWF Newsome's line if anyone is interested.
