I found Ella King Newsome was b. in Branden MS., Her Father
was Rev.T.S.N. King. She was called "The Florence Nigthingale" of the South. She was a wealthy widow who turned to nursing and funding hospitals for the wounded
Civil War victims in various places, she started in Chattooga,TN. She married a Dr Frank Newsome, she met
while in Ark.
Does anyone have information on "Dr Frank Newsome."
There is an online book you can read about her. it is titled, "The Florence Nightingale of the Southern Army"
I do not have the link to this book, it was sent to me.
It is also registered at the Library of Congress.
