Was Augusta Newman a Man or a Woman?

We have actually discussed Augusta Newman in several issues of Casefile Clues before--not just the issue 32 that was recently distributed to subscribers.

This image comes from the Bourbon County, Kentucky, marriage register--showing Augusta's 1815 marriage. The grooms in these entries are always listed first. Readers of issue 32 will remember that the deed that was discussed also involved two members of the Sledd family.

We discussed this marriage record (and the marriage bond) in issue 13 from volume 3 of Casefile Clues.
