Re: %%% NEWAL A. McBRIDE, born 1909, Camp Smith, Colbert , Alabama.***
Hello Lisa Williamson
I hope this email finds you well and still interested in genealogy.
My name is Thomas gene McBride, my grandfather was Thomas Wesley McBride in the 1880 United States Census shows that Thomas Wesley McBride, seven years old and was living with family at Camp Smith located in Colbert County Alabama.
I am not familiar with the name Newell A. McBride , or Lit A. Hand and wife Lula Bell Hand. That is not to say that my kin is related to your kin. Sometimes during the census taking a different name might be used that is different from the previous census. It would be strange that two people living in the same neighborhood, sharing the same surname, but not the some kin. Unlikely.
Here's another fact to ponder, The 1890 census shows that Thomas J McBride married Catherine "Sine" Hand. But possibly some kin there, are you familiar with her name?
I have a hard time staying focused, sure that it shows in my text.
If you find any connections between Thomas J and Catherine "Sine" Hand, let me know by email and I will try to find more information on them.
It is good corresponding with you.
