For Sharon my sister....


Sharon, it says on the back of the picture...Lafayette Newman and wife Sarah...below that it has these names...Ralph Newman, Floyd Newman, Lona Newman .. (Descendants) This is what I have found-Samuel Lafayette Newman born in Little Rock, Arkansas 1881. died: 1933 at age 51.
Wife: Sarah Ann Eslick born: Jan 15, 1885 in St Louis Missouri. Died: Feb 9, 1919 in Pittsburgh County, Oklahoma. No date of their marriage yet. He had another wife...Fanny Westmoreland, they were married in 1920 after the death of Sarah. Census shows him living in Scipio, Pittsburg, Oklahoma. This is Fanny Westmoreland
Samuel L's second wife. The picture of Samuel and Sarah...scroll down.
On the1930 census it shows Samuel Lafayette Newman as a Indian. On this census it shows him age 48 with his children, but does not show his wife, but does not say he is widowed. Children on this census for 1930 are:
Rufus Newman age 18, Leona M Newman age 16, John Newman age 14,
Zarlar Westmoreland age 19, Herbert Westmoreland age 16, and George Westmoreland age 12. All living in Ouinton, Pittsburg, Oklahoma on this census.
Samuel Lafayette Newman and wife Sarah 1910 were living in McIntosh, Oklahoma. Samuel age 28 (27) and Sarah age 23. Does not show children yet. This was in some of the pictures from Mama...more to come. I am still searching for where they belong in our family....Help!!!!

Hey sweet girl....thank you so much for stopping by to see me!! I hope you are doing wonderful...about tracking down old lace, I usually scour antique malls and even have found a little on ebay, seems it's getting harder and harder to find the old stuff cheap. Maybe you could buy some crocheted cotton lace at w-mart or something and age it with an instant coffee solution and a few crushed granules? I'm sorry I wasn't more help hon...I hope you're staying cool!!! hugs and love, Dawn
