John Newsom (Nusum) Family

Posted: 2 Aug 2010 4:25PM GMT
Classification: Query
Looking for descendents of the John and Margaret Reason Newsom Family.

I have pasted a Family Reunion Invitation.

John Nusum was born in England in 1721. He learned the blacksmith’s trade, and came to America in 1757. He died in 1761, leaving two sons, Robert and William. The latter married Margaret Speece, of Virginia, by whom he had John, Lewis, William, Robert, Nathan, Conrad, David, Polly, Susan, Elizabeth and Sally. John married Sally McLung, of Greenbrier county, Virginia, by whom he had Allen, Lewis, Nathan, Samuel, Nancy, Mary J., Sally A. and Amanda. Robert married Elizabeth Guinn, of Virginia, by whom he had Harvey, William, David, Rebecca, Julia, Virginia, Ruth, Susan, Sally and Polly. Harvey was judge of the county court of Callaway county for two years.
(2)Robert decided to stay in Richmond County and became a planter. He died there. The sons and their descendents spread southward from Richmond County and some were living on the Tombigby in Alabama in 1848.

I received the following message. Joy Lynn and her husband is planning on attending the reunion to discuss the importance of our Newsom Family to the USA.
I am currently involved in a project for a grandson of Rev. John E. Newsom, a graduate of Iowa Wesleyan University in 1888. The descendant is actually the last living male Newsom in his line and he is 85 years old. As a repository, we now hold over 2,000 original letters of Rev. John E. Newsom and his wife Emma Day Newsom. John E. Newsom was the son of Eli Sargent Newsom. who was the son of Conrad Newsom. Are you having a Newsom Family Reunion this year and if so, when is it scheduled for? I would love to share our collection of primary source documents with family members. Thank you.
