Bio and Links
Bio Photo My reason for contributing to Find a Grave is to document my family. The first, arrived in Colonial America in 1621, and the last to come in 1865. They came from Scotland, Ireland, England, Germany, Holland, and Denmark.

My families history is the story of time in America 150 years before the Revolutionary War and of Manifest Destiny.
From Virginia, and Maryland, and New York, on to North Carolina and into Tennessee, on to Missouri, Florida, and Texas, Ohio, and Iowa, Arizona, Utah, and California. Coast to coast in a little less than 400 years.

My gg grandfather Rasmus Nielsen departed from Copenhagen, Denmark, on May 8th, 1865. This was three days before my gg grandfather James William Newsom was paroled at Gainesville, Alabama as a prisoner of war after the surrender of the troops of Nathan Bedford Forrest. Rasmus found out when the ship arrived in New York Harbor that the Civil War was over.

I read somewhere that a person dies three times.
First, when they render their last breath, second, when they are laid to rest, and third, when the last person to remember them, utters their name for the last time.

Find a grave is a great way to preserve the memory of those that have come and gone before us.

RE: 16674381
Hans, I hesitate to delete the page which I manage (#33939762). I didn't originate it. I believe it was set up because the person who owned the one set up in 2006 would not correspond with "granny v" who set up the 2009 page. You will notice that I have added a great deal of info about my (5th)great grandmother Ann since "granny v" transferred the page to me. I hesitate to remove all of that information. Several persons have contacted me with thanks for sharing the information. Have also been in touch with the people who formed a work party to clean the cemetery & stones belonging to our ancestors. Mr. Chandler posted the new headstone photo which is much cleaner than the one I took in 1992.
I think it would be better to contact the person who owns the 16674381 page & ask him/her to delete their page since it has so little info on it. I can only remove the photo which I posted to that page. If "Snl Roots" will not correspond with you, you must contact Findagrave & ask them to combine the two pages.
If you are able to contact "Snl Roots", he/she has my permission to copy the information I have posted so that it is not lost. I could then delete the page which I manage.
Regards, Sharon

RE: Charity Cemetery
Sorry to have misspelled the name Newsom. Although the names I left on Charity did not have memorials at the time on the original Charity I have deleted ALL of mine and hope that someone has created other memorials.

Henderson Overby
Hi, I have just posted a copy of his Bible record which I found several years ago at the Dallas Public Library. The Bible record has a lot of information about the Overby family including more children than you have listed. Henderson was my 4th great grandfather thru his daughter Caroline Royster Overby (by first wife Elizabeth).
Regards, Sharon

Not to be overbearing, but
Chaney Foutch, niece


Mariah Newsom

living with

S.P. and Martha A. Wiles

1880 LCT Census

Chaney's living with Newsoms in 1870.

This HAS to be her. Just wondering if you came across Chaney A. Foutch, wife of Joseph Christopher Mills. It does seem to explain her first name!!

Another Note on Foutch/Newsom
Chaney Foutch, listed as a niece, living with Martha Wiles.

I noticed your note here:

"...Old Mammy Mariah who helped raise the family, went to live with Aunt Martha WILES at the death of Grandfather..."

So did Chaney, evidently.

Though her mother might have been remarried and not yet dead...

Lewis Newsom's Daughter

Noticed you have under Lewis:

Mary Steelman FOUTCH 1st Daught. Born 1842 d.12/1/1919

I believe Mary Elizabeth Newsom married James S. Steelman, Jr., H.H. Foutch, and then possibly S.P. Prosser.

Where did you find her death info?

She appears to be the daughter of Channie/Chaney Foutch Mills, my great-granduncle's first wife.

Lt. James Barrett
I read in "The Civil War in Arizona," by Andrew E. Masich that Lt. Barrett had been born in Ireland. He enlisted in the US Army in 1854 and he was 5' 9" tall with brown hair and gray eyes (pp. 4-5). His only known relative was his sister, Ellen Brady of Albany, NY who never claimed his body, so it was left at Picacho Peak when the other two were moved. At one time it was known where he lay, but the exact location has been lost over time (pp.41-42). He was 28 when he was killed so he had been born c1834. In 1928 a memorial was placed at the believed site of his grave, but it was vandalized so it was moved inside the entrance to Picacho Peak State Park (pp. 138).
