Listed in Census of 1860, Page 258, Fannin Co, TX. Is there a possibility this was a different person......A History 
of Panola County states the moved from there to Coleman Co. TX and then to New Mexico. Need to check. 

Seems to be some confusion about his name. Is it James Ebenezer or Ebenezer James? 

WFT CD #14, Tree #2268 gives his birth date as 15 Aug 1837. Historical Southern Families by Bodie XXI also 
gives the birth date as 15 Aug 1837.

Notes 

"Samuel M Newton was brought to Texas by his father in 1846, and was reared a farmer. After retaining his 
majority he moved to Cherokee Co, where he was employed in farming and the drug business, and in 1862 enlisted 
in Company D, Seventeenth Texas regiment. This regiment was captured at Arkansas Post, but Mr Newton 
managed to escape and afterward joined Company B, Twenty-eighth regiment, Walker's division and fought at 
Mansfield, Pleasant Hill, Jenkins' Ferry, and was at Hempstead, TX when peace was made. He returned to his old 
home in Panola Co and in December 1866, married Kate Watson, daughter of William Watson of Kentucky. 

Mr Newton remained in Panola until 1884, when he removed to Ravenna, Fannin Co, where is is now prosperously 
engaged in milling, cotton ginning and farming. With his family he is a member of the Methodist Episcopal 
church."
