    The Newman-Barja house is one of four houses in Sandersville that are physically the same and in the same location as they were in 1864. The other three are in the first 1-4 list that I sent you. Newman was a Confederate veteran, a merchant and ordinary and treasurer of the county for about 25 years. While holding this job he preserved important data about that period. (Irwin 68) (Jordan 221) This in in the anthology we prepared for the art show. Please do not feel that you need to alter your original statements unless you want to do so. I just thought you might be personally interested in the additional info. RI
