The Newman Family

The Newman family's relationship with the Maddens begins early with the marriage of Samuel Newman, Jr. who was born in 1741 in Penn. He married Eve Castleberry in 1762/3 probably in Newberry County, SC. Their son, Samuel Newman, Jr. was the father of the Rev. Johathan Absalom Newman. His son was George Alfred Clayton Newman.
