Am looking for anyone that has info on a NEWMAN family in Cottle Co., TX.

John Drury Newman b. 1856 Van Zandt Co., TX d. 1912 Cottle Co., TX. He md. Rebecca Franks Harper in
in Van Zandt Co. About 1885, they moved to Cottle County where their other 3 children were born. Rebeccaa died in 1894 In Paducah. Supposedly, she is buried in Paducah. Would love to find out where.

In 1895, he md. Rebecca Long Thorton. They lived in a dugout north of Paducah near the Pease River for a short time. After a few months, they moved to Dickens County. Then they sold the land they had in Dickens Co. and bought 80 acres in the SW part of Cottle Co. Three of their children were born there.

Would appreciate any help possible on this family.
