Notes for Fanny New: Fannie New was born in 1808 in Virginia and her children were born in Kentucky. There is difference in who the father of children were. Some states Stockton Dodson was the father of all the children but my grandfather stated that Fannie New wasn't married and had one or two children by a Iraqian man, therefore the children went by New. True or false , I haven't proven this fact. The question of who the children belongs to hasnt been proven.
A skeleton is also in our closet of the New. James Logan New, my grandfather stated his father Wm. Riley New told him about the Iraqian man. This is the story I was told my grandfather, a tall dark man with straight black hair traveling through and met Fannie New. This man apparently didn't revealed himself to very many people because he was a slave and feared of being taken back to his master who bought him. This man was an Iraqian from Iraq, the Egyptians had taken him prisoner and others were placed in the pyramid of the dead. Eventually the Egyptians placed them on a ship landed somewhere and put on a ship with black slaves. Black Market. Arriving in America, he was bought by a master. The negro slaves didnt like working with an Iraqian and abused him. He finally escaped and was accepted by the Indians. He traveled with the Indians to the Cumberland River in Ky , where he met Fannie. Supposedly told the story to John Wesley and Wm. Riley New about their ancestor.. Only a one or two of children belong to him. She believe he left in fear of being caught and returned to master. Fannie stated he was very educated and wasn't a negro but wouldn't revealed the identity or real name that only he was from Iraq. Fannie told the stories to her son and grandson about the pyramids and the homeland of his father & grand father from Iraq. Question: What is true, I believe I should put in this insert in because Fannie seem to be a nice person, perhaps this explain why she didn't married the father of John Wesley New. My mother said she heard he didn't want to associate with Fannie's relatives. Fannie didn't relate this until she Believe that the Iraqian man was dead. My grandfather told me the stories about the pyramids in Egypt where the Iraqians were held that supposedly passed from Fannie to John Wesley to Wm. Riley to my Grandfather and my mother. I believe it should be written, and I was amused by stories of mummies and pyramids. If true, this ancestor had to be a strong individual to endured the capture and losing his identity in the U.S.
I have read and being told by ancestors that they even sold people from Ireland, etc. for slaves but they were set free in America because they weren't Negroes. America is just what ancestors ran away from, which is Taxes, evil and persecution of people for money for the rich and the elite people.
In the New's book, by Alene is written Dodson was the parent. New had children, his parents' names are as follow: Leonard Dodson and Mary Randell. If Stockton Dodson and Fannie Humble beginnings-In the hills of Wayne Co. , there once lived a legend, they called her Granny Fanny New. She was five feet and two inches tall with black hair and brown eyes. People stated she was very pretty Granny Fanny raised her children without a husband in hard times and kept them together. Fanny Lived on Fanny Branch, which is located in Wayne Co., KY. Fanny lived under a cliff, and Stocton Dodson passed by every day on his way to and from his griss-mill and logging operation on Sinking Creek to go home to his wife. He brought a sack of cornmeal to Fanny and children every day. One cold winter he reputedly, came and boarded up the front of the cliff to "help keep the children from freezing to death".
