Information on Jonathan Newman

From "House of Newman" website:

Jonathan NEWMAN, fourteenth child of Walter and Mary NEWMAN, was born August 5, 1716. He married Mary (last name unknown). Jonathan and his family remained in Pennsylvania until 1745. Mary attended the Southhampton Baptist Church in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. She was received by baptism on October 1, 1741. Jonathan is not mentioned as a member of the church. The Southhampton Baptist Church records of October 15, 1756 states that Mary NEWMAN went with her husband to Virginia without a letter of dismissal or recommendation. The reason was probably because there was no Baptist Church in the area to which a letter could be sent.
Later, there is a statement that her husband Jonathan was now dead and a church had been established where she resided, thus a letter of dismissal was granted. On August 15, 1748, the will of Jonathan NEWMAN was recorded in Augusta County, Virginia and Samuel NEWMAN, his brother, was appointed the administrator of the Jonathan NEWMAN estate.
