Hi, I believe we are looking at the same family. Newton was born in l850, his father was John E. Mason, born in l811. Newton had a daughter, Mary Eaton, who married Calvin Curlee Hammons. Mary born Sept 6, l850. But her mother was Fannie Gannon. Newton & Fannie had a total of 13 children. My mother was the youngest.
Glad to hear from you with your interests. There may be more info we can share. I have quite a bit. Just stuck on the parents of John E. Mason, that's as far as I can get. His mother (maybe a Patton) had this child, then later married a Mason, who gave him the name of John E. Mason. It's frustrating. Thanks for contacting me, let me know if this info helps. Aleda Ross
