A dsscendant of Matthew Tolbert Newman has completed a 25 marker DNA test. This test proves that this line is not related to the Walter Newman of Cecil County, Maryland. Another DNA test of a descendant of Elwell Newmam of Washington County, Georgia, and Chotaw County, Mississippi test shows a relationship to the Matthew T. Newman line.
It appears that Hannah Elwell Newman, who we belived to be the wife of James Newman, found in the 1820 Washington County, GA census, may or may not have been the wife of James Newman.
My postings, stating that Elwell Newman was a descendand of Walter Newman and Mary, has been proven to be incorrect information. The James Newman of Washington Co., GA, may or may not be a descendant of Walter Newman.
