States: Virginia: Sussex
I am searching for the birthplace and the parents of Thomas W. Newell, who married Rebecca Virginia Wrenn in Sussex County, VA, in 1840. Thomas W. Newell also appeared in the 1840 US census in Sussex, VA. While there is very little documentation of the Newell family in Sussex County before this time, there were a number of Newell families living in adjoining Prince George County who had been established there for several generations.
Thomas Newell and Rebecca Wrenn had two sons: George Waverly Newell (1844-1926 d DC), and Alphonso Murat Newell (c 1846-1907). Thomas W. Newell died sometime before March 1849. Rebecca Wrenn Newell married again to James Harrison Brooks in 1858.
