#tbt: Newsoms in Whiteside, TN edition.

According to the kids these days, #tbt stands for #throwbackthursday, an opportunity to force old baby pictures et. al. on all your all your friends, and genealogists are all about this sort of thing. “Come look at my ancestors! LOOK AT THEM!”

So, In light of all the work I’ve been doing on my maternal great-great-grandfather’s family, here is a picture I just found at my grandmother’s house last week. This is Harry Edward NEWSOM (1884-1973), and two of his sisters. We aren’t sure which, but grandma thinks one is Phemia NEWSOM (b. 1887,) who attended  the Tennessee School for the Deaf. It is taken in Whiteside, Marion County, Tennessee. It looks beautiful there! Rolling green hills are my favorite.

holy thumb print, batman!
