The BLACKBURN FAMILY

MARTIN NEWMAN

MARTIN NEWMAN, son of John Newman and Polly Newman, was born June 23, 1802 in Richmond County, Georgia. John Martin Newman married FLORA ANN WILLIS on January 30, 1823. This source is "Richmond County, Georgia, Georgia DAR Vol. II, Records of Richmond County, Georgia, 1929 Historical Collections of Georgia Chapters." and sec by William Newman (maybe this could be a sibling of John Martin).

In the 1860 census of Shelby County, Texas, in the Community of Buena Vista, Martin Newman name was given and JOHN NEWMAN. There seems to be quite a few erros in the names and spelling plus the information is sloppy. The person furnishing the data could have been very young or the census taker was poor. Persons living in the household at that time were:

NAME AGE NOTES
John Newman 66 Farmer-Born Georgia
Flory Newman 50 Born-Geoirgia
Sarah Newman 21 Born-Alabama
F 17 Benjamin Franklin Born Ala.
George Newman 16 Born-Alabama
E 15 Sarah Ann Elizabeth-Ala
Ameda 13 Adeline Virginia"Vic"-Ala
?? 12 Person Born in Miss.
A. J. Brandon 22 Born-Alabama
Flory Brandon (Flora) 18 Born Alabama

The above census was taken on July 28, 1860. The following census in the same area, Buena Vista, was taken on July 26 1860:

NAME AGE NOTES
D. C. Brandon 21 Farmer-Born Alabama
Flora Ann 17 Born-Alabama

It is not know why A. J. or D. C. Brandon used two different names, but in the Martin Newman Bible is recorded "D.C. Brandon died December 7, 1862".

IN 1870 Martin Newman received an Excess Land Grant of 160 acres from the State of Texas. This is recorded in the land records of Angelina County, Texas. The property is located on what is now Highway 103 about seven miles from Lufkin, Texas. The Newman Cemetery is located on part of lthis property. It is the burial place of Martin Newman, his wife Flora Ann Newman and four of his daughters, SARAH ANN ELIZABETH NEWMAN COOK, LOUISA ANN NEWMAN BENNETT, FLORA ANN NEWMAN BRANDON YARBROUGH and ADLINE VIRGINIA NEWMAN PITNER GALIGER. Each year on the second Saturday of June a reunion is held at the Newman Cemetery. The Cemetery can be visited today, not much has changed from the time Martin was buried. Martin Newman died, age 76, April 7, 1877. Flora Ann Newman died on January 2, 1881.
