Bob Newby
Quaker Newby Line
Hi Marti
Dixie is from the Quaker line of Newbys that first settled in Virginia and then moved to North Carolina which had a friendlier attitude to the Quakers. Most migrated to Indiana to avoid fighting in the Civil War. Your branch moved to Georgia, Alabama and then into Texas. James P's brother Wiley G Newby 1820 GA - 12/19/1889 AL was a shoemaker. Enlisted 1862 Clopton, AL Company "B" 33rd Alabama Infantry. Most of this company was from Dale Co., AL. As with many families, James may have enlisted with his brother. This company had an 82% casualty rate at Perryville, KY and again suffered heavy loses at Franklin, TN.
I have more data on the Quaker line if you wish to email me at

James Newby # 62119638
Died July "1855" age 34 years 8 month, Burial Jackson Co., IN.

As you requested, I linked James as the father of John Simmons Newby # 44280454.

Under further review I found this to be incorrect.
My source of information:
Georgia marriages to 1850 - 12/11/1844 James P Newby & Rebecca King Talbot Co.,GA.
1850 Census Burkes, Stewart Co., GA
1860 Newton PO, Dale Co., AL
"James P Newby is not listed after 1860 census."

1870 Census Dale Co., AL Rebecca is listed as head of house with her nine children. Lucy is the youngest at age 8,(1862) born AL.
James may have died during the 1861-1865 Civil War.
There are a number of James Newbys that fought on both sides in this war.
James brother Wiley G Newby enlisted in Company "B",
33rd Alabama Infantry.
