Witten Family Genealogy Forum
Was surfing tonight and came upon this. My guess is that we are related. My grandmother was Cynthia Witten Newton; she was one of many children of James R. (?) Witten. She was born sometime around 1868 and married John Milton Newton in about 1890.
Except for a few years before and after 1920, they lived in Pocahontas and Bluefield (both towns in Tazewell County, VA) for most of their lives. Grandfather Newton died in 1935, Grandmother in 1956. Both are buried in Bluefield, VA. I have lived in Bluefield most of my life.
(I am using qualifiers because I do not have family records at hand just now, and am working entirely from memory.) I know that one of Cynthia's sisters was Matilda Witten ("Aunt Tillie"); she married a Kelley and later lived in Charlottesville VA for many years.
Hope I can help. Best wishes, Joe Newton
