I am very interested in the Newton family from Caroline Co, Va.
DNA on connected Newton's go back to Caroline County in the years of late 1730's and up to 1770's.
Giles Newton lived there for some time period.
I descend from John Newton born ca 1750's or earlier.
This John had a brother who stayed in Virginia and county was not mentioned in his son's memories written in 1856, and brothers name was not mentioned.
This son was Isaac Newton born 1777 in S.C. who went to Virginia with his father to see his brother in 1798 and Isaac stayed in Va and John his father came back to South Carolina. We find the county that Isaac married his wife was in Caroline County, Va.
I understand that a James Newton died in 1798 in Caroline County, question is, did John hear of his brother James being ill and wanted to see him before he died?
Would like to share info with you, if interested.
How Giles is kin we haven't discoverd that yet either, but matches with John Newton on DNA.
Giles left Caroline County and ended up in Charlotte Co, Va and family to Marlboro Co, S.C.
Giles Newton born ca 1740's married Elizabeth Terrell
Giles Newton had son James who married Sarah Terrell.
