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!!!!

Almost time

Our Kristie will have her baby girl at any time now. If she hasn't had her by July 27th they will induce labor. We had dinner with our whole family Sunday and she is building her nest. They have a very large home and they moved the oldest to the smallest room so that the 3 girls will share a room about the size of a really good sized living room. Everyone has been busy moving things and painting. Kristie is so talented, she has done graphics too. The quilt I made fits perfect with all the colors on the walls...the girls (Alexis and Avery) are really excited. Wanted me to see everything. The boys (Cj and Treyton) have been painting too. Now there will be five children. To be continued
