Got your email about the Newbery family. I don't really think that we are of
the same family. I can reliably say that my Newbery family was in N.Y. in
the 1740's in Putnam Co. and later in Orange Co. John Newberry married Jemima
Benedict and they had 12 children, one of whom was my GGGgrandfather James
Newberry who was an early Mormon.
The following will explain a little more. He was however in Missouri for
awhile which is an interesting coincidence.
