Details of Francis's children provided by his descendant, Christine Scheller, in Sept 2014.

From Jerry Gandolfo: Francis Newman became a Captain in the rebel (Confederate) army during the American Civil War and was killed in battle at Vicksburg in 1863. Before he died, he married a French Creole, the granddaughter of a French Privateer, Ezilda M. Daubert. They had several children including one named Hollis Louis Newman.

Notes on photo sent to me by Jerry Gandolfo 20 Jul 2002: CSA = Confederate States of America, or the rebel army. The picture is from a funeral brooch that his wife wore for years after his death in the American Civil War at the Battle of Vicksburg.
