Hi Clyde, I was just going by name shown as "posted by". You say your Newtons settled in Denton Co, TX 1869, but they are on the 1860 census, have you checked land records to see when he first buys land in the county? He is a neighbor to my husand's Hayhurst family. By 1870 my Yates family moved in there, too.

Since you did look at the 1860 census, have you looked at any others? I don't know what you have, so far, so don't want to duplicate. Are you descended from the other John on next page? He shows up on the 1870 census, and next door to him on that census is a George also b TN.

Have you checked the Denton Co, TX GenWeb site? They have the 1850 census transcribed online and no Newtons show up. If you also go to the archived section of the TX GenWeb Project, click on Denton Co, use their search feature and type in Newton. Lots of items come up, but you will have to work your way through all the entries for more contemporary vitals records. I clicked on a couple of cemeteries and the above George Newton and wife are buried in the Pilot Point Community Cemetery, along with several other Newtons, too.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
