Joe,

Love your Home Page. C. Newport, one of the first justices in Claiborne County, was Cavanaugh Newport. I have checked the court records. At first he was referred to as Cavender Newport, and later as Cavanaugh (a family name). He was the son of Rev. Richard Newport, who constituted the Davis Creek Baptist Church (which will be 200 years old on Oct. 1, 1997). I have other information on his role in Claiborne County, if you're interested. I am also a Phillips/Sexton descendant and a Goad descendant through Anna Goad Newport. You have done some marvelous work here. Could Tommie Phillips be Thomas Phillips, married to Mary Goad? I am descended from Emanuel Phillips who was married to Leanner Sexton. Emanuel donated (or sold) the land where the present county seat of Huntsville stands. Would love to hear from you. Edna Sachs (also a Newport descendant) connected me to your site.

Dear Joe,
Thank you for the information. I will get some Newport information together to send you--perhaps I could send you what I submitted to the First Families Project of Tennessee. I am very much interested in adding Richard Newport to Tennessee history in whatever way I can, because he has been neglected in most accounts. I found in late December that he was in Tennessee in 1796, representing the Powell's Valley Church (at Gap Creek in Claiborne County) at the Holston Association Meeting in August of that year. He and John Frost constituted the Davis Creek Baptist Church on October 1, 1797, and his wife, Sarah, as well as his son, John and John's wife, Pharaba, were charter members. Richard Newport and William Jones installed Jesse Dodson as the minister of the Big Springs Baptist Church in 1802 in Claiborne County. This church is still standing today.
Richard Newport's son, Ezekiel Newport, is my G-G-G Grandfather and the patriarch of the Morgan/Scott County Newport clan. He married Rebecca Cecil (Sysell) in Wayne County, KY in 1805 and then came to what is now Scott County. Rebecca and her brother, Samuel, were the first of the Cecil clan to come to Scott County.
I was in correspondence for quite awhile with Ephraim Phillips, son of Mount and Oma Phillips, before he died in an auto accident. My Great Grandmother was Emeline Phillips, daughter of Emanuel and Leanner (some say Arlena) Phillips. Emeline was orphaned at a young age, and later married John Foster. My parents are Earl Foster and Wilma Newport
As I understand it, Anna Goad was the daughter of Joshua Goad. She married Richard Newport, the son of Ezekiel and Rebecca Newport. I would certainly appreciate any information on the Phillips, Sexton, or other families.
Richard Newport was married secondly to Hannah Hinds in Knox County in 1800. Cavanaugh Newport married Hannah's sister, Lucy Hinds (Louisiana aka Susannah) in 1801 in Knox County. Edna Clack Sachs lives in Rhea County, and is a descendant of Richard and Hannah Newport through their son, Asa Newport. She and I are working on a book about Rev. Newport. However, we don't know where he is buried. We have an exact date of death for him, but no one seems to know where he is buried. Any ideas? Also, I don't know where Ezekiel and Rebecca Newport are buried--I would guess in the Brimstone area of Scott or Morgan County.
I hope this helps to guide you in what to send me. If you need anything from me, please let me know. Are you related to Sen. Baker through the Phillips family? If I find anything on the Atkins family, I will let you know. Have you read the book Scott County and Some of Its Families  ? It has a lot of information in it.
I noticed you mentioned the Cumberland Chronicle. Do you have access to those? I am in search of any old photos of the Newport family. Right now, I would especially like to find any Civil War era or late-1800's photos, particularly one of James J. Newport. He served in the Tennessee House from 1893-95, representing Scott, Morgan and Anderson Counties. They are missing the composite photo of the 48th General Assembly at the State Capitol in Nashville. I thought there might be a photo of him in the Cumberland Chronicle. He was probably elected in 1892. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Look forward to working with you. This is a great medium for genealogists--if you can get online.
