John Newby - Newby Cemetary White County, IL
Hello Bobby,
Thank you for maintaining my GGG Grandfather John Newby's entry. I am very appreciative.
I have a mystery to solve. I found you and Wayne & Betty Newby through "Fallen Gravers, Memorial For" virtual cemetary by julia&keld. I just randomly clicked on a familiar name (Newby) in a long list of dedicated gravers to pay my respects.
Just by chance, we may be long lost cousins. :)
Here is my Newby family history with the mystery to follow.

My Great Great Grandmother was Mary E. Newby Tullis Birth: Mar.8,1834 White County, Illinois, USA Death: Aug. 15, 1915 Springerton,White County, Illinois, USA, Shrewsbury Cemetery, Millshoals, IL, USA, on 1 January 1850 in White Co IL, she married Alexander Wilson Tullis Birth: Mar. 9, 1826 Cupar, Fife, Scotland, Death: Dec. 31, 1898 Springerton, White County, Illinois, Shrewsbury Cemetery, Millshoals, IL, USA a School Teacher in Millshoals, IL.
Her parents were John Newby(1798-1843)Sumner, Smith County, Tennessee, USA - Newby Cemetery Millshoals, White County, Illinois, USA & Rebecca Simpson Newby (1802-1900) Henry County, Virginia, USA - Shrewsbury Cemetery, Millshoals, White County, Illinois, USA.
John Newby's parents were William "Billy" Newby (1774-1844)Amherst County, Virginia/Newby Cemetery (photo), Grant(Smith County)County, Tennessee, USA & 1st wife - Nancy Pryor Newby (1777-1799)* Louisa County, Virginia/Newby Cemetery, Grant(Smith County)County, Tennessee, USA.
2nd wife - Nancy Hankins Rowland Newby (1785-1865)* Pennsylvania, USA/Newby Cemetery, Grant(Smith County)County, Tennessee, USA.
*There are three "Unmarked" Crypts. It is thought that they contain William, Nancy & Nancy's remains - Newby Cemetery, Grant(Smith County)County, Tennessee, USA.
William's parents were Whaley Newby (1721-1796) Lancaster County, Virginia/Warren County
Tennessee, USA. Burial: Unknown Specifically: Burial In Tennessee & Elizabeth Thomson.

While compiling my Newby info to share with Wayne Newby, I discovered a mystery to solve.
There are 2 photos of Newby Cemeteries, White County, IL & Grant(Smith County)County, Tennessee, USA, one on John Newby's entry (WC, IL) & one William "Billy" Newby's entry (SC, TN) on Find A Grave. One is 3 stones on the ground grouped together (John's entry) (WC, IL) added by: Epy & the other (William's entry) (SC, TN) is a recently uncovered hand chiseled field stone bearing the name "W Newby" (backwards N) added by: John & Retta Waggoner.
This has me confused. The photo of 3 stones on John Newby's page is not labeled.
I have never heard of Newby Cemetery in White County, IL and am wondering if John Newby (photo of marked stone) is actually buried in Shrewsbury Cemetery in Millshoals, White County, IL.
I am also wondering if the photo labeled (Hand engraved fieldrock Newby Cemetery
Smith County, Tennessee) of the stone "W Newby" (backwards N) on William "Billy" Newby's entry is actually his Father, Whaley Newby's grave, with William being buried where originally thought, with his wives Nancy Pryor Newby & Nancy Hankins Rowland Newby, in the three "Unmarked" Crypts.
This has put me on a mission.
I plan to contact the posters/keepers of the entries & photos and a cousin who lives next to Shrewsbury Cemetery to see if I can shine some light on the mystery.
I also plan to go there myself, gather info and take photos to add to existing family entries. Wish me luck. :)
Can you help with the question about Newby Cemetery, White County, IL?

Added info as requested, updated Augusta's memorial with the additional info as well.

If you would like them transferred to your care, it would be my pleasure.

I added a photo of the section they are in since their graves are unmarked.

RE: James Newby # 62119638
Thanks so much for researching this, Bob. I'm glad I made the error so I could "meet" you!

The Newby connection to my family is through Dixie Newby, my ex-husband's paternal grandmother. I've been working on the family tree for our son, who's 24 years old.

We live in western North Carolina, where a LOT of families passed through on the Great Wagon Road on their way westward. Makes it difficult sometimes to get things straight.

Thank you, again...I'm going to try the Civil War rosters now.

Take care,

I will hang on to her. I hope all the research I have done on the memorials will connect them to family. Sadly I have a few that I was not able to find any information on.

Bob, I added the link to her parents. Would you like for me to transfer this memorial to you? Maybe the 51714674 Memorial could be deleted.

Thank you for the information ... Two months spent photographing the entire cemetery, and it's great to know the memorials are being seen :)

Let me know if you want Henry and Josephine transferred to you.

I was saddened to stumble across my newly found, distant cousin's memorial yesterday.

Thank you for creating his memorial and thank you for sending him my way last year when he was seeking his family out on the Internet. I know you were a big help to him.
