  • Notes 
    • Her name was listed as “Ona” on her marriage record. The original appears to be a copy/transcription, so it’s possible it was copied incorrectly.

      Joel's daughter, Ann Lee, was born in 1839, and in the 1850 census is listed as being a "Mulatto". Joel's first wife may have been of Indian race, or Black. For years it has been known, by some of the descendants of Joel, that there was Indian blood within the family's ancestral lineage. As to this being the source of the Indian connection is unknown at this time.

      RESEARCH: There is a mention of an inventory of Joseph Newman, deceased, in the May 1815 Patrick Co., Virginia records. It is thought he is the father of Ora Newman. We have three atDNA matches to people with Joeseph Newman in their ancestry.
