I am seeking information on the death dates and final resting places of John NEWMAN (b. abt 1833) and his wife Milly (Pack) Newman (b. abt 1832), as well as their daughter Sarah Ellen (Newman) HUGHES (b. 1855). John and Milly married in Patrick County, Virginia, 9 Nov. 1852.

I find John and Milly NEWMAN living in the Dan River District area of Patrick Co. up through the 1880 census. Then in 1910, John Newman is widowed, living with his widowed daughter Lucinda GRIFFITH, in Lipp, Wise County, Virginia. Sarah (Newman) HUGHES, also widowed, is living nearby.

Sarah's husband, James Abraham HUGHES (1855-1900) is buried in the old "Baliles, Branch & Hughes Cemetery" in Patrick County, but his wife Sarah, and her parents John and Milly NEWMAN, do not appear to be buried there. Are they buried in Wise County? When did they die?

Many thanks
