    We also see here Winnie's mother Talitha Green Jackson.  The childFannie C Randolph, listed as a sister-in-law of Newton Philpot, isWinnie's half-sister, Talitha's daughter by her second husband ElijahRandolph.  We are told that Elijah left them shortly before Fannie'sbirth in 1881.  It appears from this listing that Talitha went back tousing her first married name.

    All the census reports have Mississippi as the birth place of Newton.One genealogy tells us that it was in Tishomingo County.  No source isgiven for this information.  Dwight Owens lacks the marriage and deathdetails, but provides the name and some information on Newton'sparents.

    Newton's son Samuel Clarence reported in his WWI registration that hisfather was born in Booneville, Mississippi, which is in PrentissCounty.  Since this is the only report I have seen from a member ofthe family, I am reporting this as Newton's place of birth.

    In 1910, the family is in the same area, which has now becomeWashington Township of the small Love County, Oklahoma.

    1910 Federal Census, Love County, Oklahoma, 2 May, WashingtonTownship, District 173. page 7B-8A, Hse #139, Fam #140

    Filpot, Joseph R Son M W 7  OK MS OK Farm Laborer [b abt 1903]
    Filpot, Earl H Son M W 3  OK MS OK Farm Laborer [b abt 1907]

    We can tell from the birth dates and ages of the children in these twocensuses that Newton and Alice were married in Texas, where the firstchild Lienelin (?) was born.  They moved to Indian Territory betweenDecember 1890 and January 1893 when Gertie was born.  We find Talithamissing from this household and may assume she died sometime since the1900 census.  No one has found the exact death date or place forTalitha.

    By 1920, Newton has moved his family to east central Oklahoma, to thecity of Ada, in Pontotoc County.  Alice has died since the lastcensus, and only the two sons Joseph Ralph and Earl Haskell are withhim in the home.

    1920 Federal Census, Pontotoc County, Oklahoma, 21 January, Ada City,Ward 4 (Fount), District 165. page 20B, 601 West 17th, Hse #378, Fam#479

    In 1920 we have a third state of birth given for Newton's father.  In1900 it was Tennessee, in 1910 Illinois, and now we are told he wasborn in Kentucky.  His mother's birthplace was also changed over thethree censuses from Mississippi to US to Alabama.

    In this census we learn Joseph's middle name, since he is listed as JRalph, while in 1910 he was Joseph R.  In his father's obituary we seehim referred to as Joe, while his younger brother is referred to byhis full name Earl Haskell.

    In 1930, Newt is living in the household of his married son JosephRalph.

    The 1940 census for Newton shows he is living with his son Joseph inAda.  Living next door is another son, Samuel Clarence.  At some pointS C moved to Oklahoma City.  Co-researcher Cindy Beam, a grandchild ofFannie Randolph, located and shared with me the Obituary of NewtonPhilpot, from the Ada (Oklahoma) Evening News of 7 July 1957.  Thistells us that Newton died on Friday 5 July 1957 in Oklahoma City,where they had been living for about 4 years with his son, S CPhilpot, after becoming ill.

    NEWTON PHILPOT

    Newton Philpot, 89, resident of Ada from 1917 until he became illabout four years ago and moved to Oklahoma City to be with a son, S.C. Philpot, died at Oklahoma City, Friday night [5 July 1957] at 8:40.

    Funeral services will be held Monday [8 July 1957] at 4 in OklahomaCity at the Hunter Funeral Home with burial in an Oklahoma Citycemetery.

    Mr. Philpot, a construction worker, came to Ada in 1917 from SulphurSprings, Tex.

    Surviving are a daughter, Mrs. Ellen Terry, Tahoka, Tex.; sons, Joe ofAda, S. C. of Oklahoma City and Earl Haskell of California; severalgrandchildren and a great grandchild.

    --  The Ada Evening News, Ada, Oklahoma, Sunday, 7 July 1957, p 2
    ----------------------------------------

    Note that his obituary says he moved to Ada in 1917 from SulphurSprings, Texas.  But the 1900 census reports him and his familyresident in Chickasaw Nation and the 1910 census matches this with aresidence in Washington Township in Love County, Oklahoma.  So he musthave lived in Sulphur Springs earlier, but after the birth of theirfirst child, Lou Ellen in 1890, they moved to Chickasaw Nation.  Allthe other children were reported born in Chickasaw Nation, from 1893to 1907.  This means they moved to Chickasaw Nation about 1892.  So hemoved to Ada from Love County.

    His move is reported to have been in 1917, the year that Winnie died.She is buried in Ada.  It is possible she died there after they movedinstead of in Love County.  There is no death record.

    A cousin and co-researcher Beverly HIll discovered that Newt wasburied in the Sunnyvale Cemetery (in Del City, Oklahoma).

    Orville: I called Hunter Funeral home in Oklahoma City and they wentout of business in 2002 but all of their files went to SunnyLaneFuneral Home so I called them. Newton is buried in SunnyLane Cemeteryunder the name Newt Philpot.

    We are told that they moved to Ada in 1917 from Sulphur Springs,Texas, to Ada, but in the 1910 census, they were in Love County,Oklahoma.  They had moved there from across the border in CookeCounty, Texas in about 1891 or 1892.  Did they move from Love Countyback to Texas between 1910 and 1917 for only a short time, then moveup to Ada in Pontotoc County in 1917?

    Newton's obituary above does not give his birth date, but gives hisage as 89.  This would make his birth in approximately 1868.  This isconsistent with his birth date reported in the 1900 census of January1868.

    Among the survivors, note that his daughter Lou Ellen is reported asliving in Tahoka (Lynn County), Texas.  In the 1930 census, herbrother Clarence was there also, living in the Terry household.  Ihave found only two Philpots in the Tahoka Cemetery register, and Icannot connect them with this family.  They must be related, and ElvisPhilpot was born in the same period as Ellen and her siblings.  Butthe last brother we have record of, Earl, was born in 1907, and ElvisPhilpot was born in 1911.
