Robert Newell of Saybrook, CT is my great, great, great grandfather who married Lydia Barker in 1790 in the Greeneville, NY Presbyterian church.  they lived in Stamford, / Harpersfield NY. He died in 1831.  He and Lydia are buried in the Old cemetery , Stamford, NY.  I know that Lydia's mother was Esther Russell.  Robert Newell was a Revolutionary War soldier. I do not know anything about the Newell family before Robert.

 

Recently I visited Durham, Greene county, NY where I found the sign for an inn run by John Newell, who was a Capt. in the Revolutionary War, but I am not able to connect them. Any information is appreciated.
