I did not give you much info on the Newton's, but I will try now. I will start with John Newton, 1784-???. My mother was a Newton, Lena, 1903-2003. she told me of her father, Dee Newton, and herself searching for John's grave on Uncle Ike Newton's farm, (which is now under water, Lake Ray Roberts) she said he was buried with two unmarried daughters and a black slave, but they could not find the site as it was all grown up. We all assumed that John Newton came to Texas with all of the rest of the Newtons in 1869, but I think he was already there, i.e. the 1860 census. I will give you my direct line, John's son Charles,b. 1810 N.C. and died 1881 in Denton County and is buried with his wife at Tyson Cemetery, he and his wife Susan Whitehead had 13 children with George Washington(my ggrandfather) Newton b. 1839 Perry County TN. and died 1926 in Pilot Point. George was in the civil war, fought at Shiloh and was wounded twice, discharged from the service and signed up with a home guard unit in Arkansas and was wounded again at the battle of Jenkin's Ferry. Charles and his family left TN in 1844 and moved to Stoddard County MO, then in 1854 moved to Hot Springs County AR.Then in 1869 they moved to Denton County, the people who might have made the trip to Texas-Charles and Susan Newton,Jesse and John Newton, brothers of Charles,the children of Charles and Susan, George and Mary Ann, C. P. newton,William, Reuben, and Sir Isaac. I have a Newton family history which was compiled by a cousin and is fairly accurate. This is sort of unorganized but will try to put something together later.PS I am using my wife's sign-in which may have confused you.
