Excerpted from The Family and Descendants of Jonathan Newman, An American Patriot from Lynches River, South Carolina, by W. Leroy Moffett Excerpt from Biographical and Historical Memoirs of Mississippi, Vol., II, page 508; Goodspeed Publishing Co., Baltimore, Maryland: " As a man of business Mr. David B. Newman's name and fame are coextensive with Jefferson and the surrounding counties. Every step of his financial and commercial career has been illustrated with acts of liberality, and with each vital interest of his section and his people he has been closely identified. If industry, hard work and ceaseless activity, united with a strong and determined perseverance, can accomplish anything in this world, Mr. Newman will undoubtedly become wealthy, for in him are to be found all the characteristics mentioned, and he deserves more than ordinary credit for his career thus far in life. He was born in Franklin County, Mississippi, October 15, 1860, his father, Maxwell Newman, being also born there." " The early boyhood of David B. Newman was spent in his native County, and in Hiwasse College he acquired a thorough practical education, completing an English course of study in 1879, soon after which he began teaching school, following this occupation in Jefferson County for one year, after which he clerked in a store at Union Church for a number of years. His next venture in earning his own living was to open them are mercantile establishment near that place for one year, after which, in 1865, he formed a partnership with his brother, A. M. Newman, built a store and begin business at McNair, their establishment being the second one open at that point. The present firm of D. B. Newman and Company was formed in 1890, and as their store room is large and roomy their stock of general merchandise is well selected and large. Their trade, which amounts to about $40,000 annually, has been secured by honesty, fair dealing, and by studying and supplying the wants of the public. Mr. Newman has shown the best of judgment and tact, and as a natural result he is doing a thriving and constantly increasing business, and although he is yet a young man his outlook for the future is bright and promising. His marriage, which was celebrated in Franklin County, December 17, 1890, was to Miss Addie McNeil a daughter of George McNeil (deceased). Mrs. Newman was born and reared in Lincoln County and being intelligent and well educated, she is proving a true helpmate to her husband."
