    Notes 
    • Melba Gene McLemore writes that he was in Co. B of the 106th Infantry during the Civil War.

      Dan Sanchez, of Edgewood, New Mexico, emailed Melba Gene McLemore that "The story I have of Charles Vernah Newman, has been told to me by my grandfather (still living) and my mother (deceased).

      Charles Newman came from Canada, somehow ended up in Illinois and joined the Union Army, he was in the 106th Illinois Infantry Company B, he mustered in at Mt. Pulaski, Illinois and served in the battle of Vicksburg, near Vicksburg Mississippi at the time the Civil War ended. When the Civil War ended the Army took the horses back from the soldiers if they even had horses as the horses belonged to the federal government. The soldiers were left on foot as they marched through Arkansas my great great grandfather got hungery and tried to steal a chicken from a store near the old military road, 5-10 miles west of Star City.

      the store was owned by a widow woman Elvira "Missy" Melissa McLemore, and from what I've been told she shot him for trying to steal a chicken, nursed him back to health, and they later married. Charles mustered out at Camp Robinson (now North Little Rock) at the time the government could't afford to pay the soldiers in cash money so they paid them in landgrants. According to my mother my GG Grandfather was paid with a land grant in the territory of New Mexico, from what I was told the land grant is part of  the White Oaks mines near White Oaks in Lincoln County New Mexico (Carrizzozo is the county seat presently). I have no information as to whether or not Charles ever visited New Mexico to claim his pay. I know that Charles is buried in the Old Newman Cemetery (as it is refered to by the locals in Star City) and I have cleaned gravesites there when I was younger. I've been told that there are several unmarked graves in the cemetery due to disrepair. There are two other cemeteries on the west side of Star City, one is called the New Newman Cemetery and the other I'm not sure what it is called. Star City is in Lincoln County Arkansas.This is all the information I have at present.  I would venture to guess that the Wright  McLemore buried in the Old Newman Cemetery is Sr. not Jr.
