Newman. He moved from South Carolina
to Pike County,Ms.and may have lived in what is now St. Helena Parish. He
was married,first time to Mary Norman. I don't know if she died or they
divorced. They had about seven or eight children. He next married Mary Tate
Lindsey, who was first married to Isaac Lindsey,who died in early 1830's. I

. I am looking for relatives that may live in or around
Covington/Hammond. They would be the Hill family, a pastor that I think
would be named either Frank or Edwards. Apparently, he is a
brother/stepbrother of my late father and I've been looking for some time
of relative since 1984 with no results. Feel free to drop my email address
to any relative that might know of the John B. Hill, Sr. family from
Bogalusa and married into the Boyington family, Edward and Annie Boyington;
daughter Betty Lou Boyington (my mother). Thanks again for your help. Dan

libraries in Bogalusa and in Franklinton. This month, on May 8, we will meet
in Franklinton. The library is at the corner of Free St. and Main St. next
to the Elementary School and across the street from the Junior High School.
Our speaker this month will be Mr. John Hunley who will be making a
presentation on the first submarine ever to be used by the US against an
enemy. This was the CSS H.L. Hunley, used by the South during the Civil War
against the Union ships.
Mr. Hunley was present last month when the old submarine was pulled from its
watery grave off the coast of the Carolinas. He has been researching the
Hunley family and the designer of the sub for 37 years. (The last will and
testament of the designer of the ship was located in the Covington, LA
library). Please inform any interested persons that they are cordially
invited to attend any of our meetings. S Smith
