Always in our Memories: Troy Newsome 1913-1935
Troy died when he was only 22 years old, from a rare, genetic heart condition, while he was working in a coal mine. He had married Nora Belle Collins, just four months before. His father Johnnie had died from the same condition, when Troy was a little boy.
Troy was buried in the Sammy Clark Branch Cemetery, in Floyd County, Kentucky, but his grave was marked with just a small rock. It is completely overgrown now.
This book traces the ancestors of Troy's parents (Johnnie Newsome and Dollie Bowen), several generations back. It also includes information about Troy's siblings, his mother's second husband (Linzie Crum) and their children, his wife Nora Belle Collins, her ancestors, and her second husband (Rhoda Stone).
