Here is what I have on the NEWTON Line;
My request is for the family of ROBERT M. NEWTON who married ELIZABETH J. MEADORS.Robert was born in 1830, Georgia.
My Great Grandmother, his daughter, was JULIA C. NEWTON, who married GEORGE L. JORDAN Julia was born 1864 in Whiteburg, Georgia. I think her sister was LULA NEWTON, but I can't prove that yet.
I need all information on ROBERT and his family.
Robert's father was THOMAS E. NEWTON, His parents were HENRY NEWTON who married NANCY GLASS. Henry's parents were JOHN NEWTON AND MARY MITCHELL, John's father I think was a
HENRY NEWTON, born about 1728. I have no farther back than that.
So the family of 1728 and back would be helpful also.
Can anyone help me find out more about this Jordan/Newton family?
Thank you for your time,
