In Reply to: NEWELL'S, of Botetourt Co., Va.-1700's by Steve Guthrie of 1300

John J Newell was born on 15 Dec 1814. Census information gives his place of birth as VA, though he lived much of his life in Hamilton, Greene and Ulster Counties, NY. His wife, Lucy Schafer was born in Rensselear County, NY. All of their children were born in NY. There are many Newells in this part of NY during the 19th century.

In the 1810 Census for Botetourt County, VA Thos. Newall is listed. In the 1830 Census Nancy Newell is listed.

Do you know of any connection between the Newells of NY and those of VA?
