Cate,
Here's what I found so far. Looks like Johan used the name William John at times. I've found it both ways. Edit used Edith. August Reinhold used Reynold August.
Here's the naturalization of Reynold August on 11 May 1928.

I am attaching the 1930 census for the family. You'l' find William J and Edith S Newman , an Eklund described as brother-in-law of head. A few lines below is Reynold and his parents.
Do you have more info on the two ladies, Ida and Ann Olivia. If I'm understanding you, they are sisters of Reynold and John. Is that correct? Are John and Sanna the parents of all, John William, Reynold, Ann and Ida?

Cate,
Here's some more info. It appears they also used the surname Neverman before Newman. William John and Ediths Declaration and Naturalization are under Neverman, as is Reynold's Declaration. His final Naturalization is Newman. Also, here's WWI Draft Reg for John William Newman.

Cate,
I'm abit confused. I thought this info was starting to look familiar. I had given you pages of information on this same family in a previous post of yours, Neverman in Seattle. What else exactly are you still looking for? The only thing new is that they did use the name Neverman at one time. Karen

Hello! thank you for everything! Yes Ida, Anna Olivia, Reynold, johan viljam= John W or william john =) are siblings. their parents are sanna and johan ernst vilhelm neverman. Unfortunately i donīt have anymore information about Ida (born july 12 1901 or 1895??)and Anna Olivia (born 1896).

From the census of 1930 I now found out that edith and john w newman had a son named william r, born 1924! hadnīt seen that before.

interesting..the paper "petition for naturalization"..one of the witnesses are Isac Isaacson, I know there are many of them but there are one from my grandfathers side too that I know only this about:

Isak Isaksson Knuts 1881-1936.to avoid the
army 1902 to Duluth, Minnesota,going to his brother
Andrew W. Knuts in Seattle.Woodsman. Single

could it be the same one..?? his brothers info:

Anders (Andrew) Isaksson Knuts Wicklund
1879-1928, To avoid army 1900 to Port Angeles,
Clallam, Wash. Hotel clerk and tobacco store clerk
Visited Vancouver, back to Seattle 1913.

Isaac and andrew were from the same village as the newmans/nevermans..

Cate,
Did you look at John William's Declaration real closely? It gives his marriage date and where he was married. It also gives the DOB of Russell William, his son. It must be a typo as it says Feb 14, 1934. He was 6 in 1930, which would be 1923-24. The final papers say 1924. Also, if you look down 2 lines below Reynold on the 1930 census, it's an Isaac Isaacson listed as brother of the person above him. Karen

Cate,
I found the marriage record for John and Edith on the British Columbia Marriage Index. Also, the Declaration for Reinhold August Neverman and the arrival of him and sister, Anna Olivia. I'll have to send in another post.

If you look at the 1930 census, there's an Idah, wife of William Martinson just below George Eklund and above John Newman. Wonder if that could be the Ida you're looking for? Notice Isaac Isaacson was a witness for both William and Reynold. I found Charles A Whitson on the 1930 census just a few pages after the Newman families. He was also a witness. Karen

Cate,
I found John Neverman, the father, and William in Seahurst Park, King, WA in 1920. You'll note that Charles Whitson and Isaac Isaacson are there also. I also found the 1903 arrival of Johan, the father, to MN and then, Johan, the son in 1912, going to father in MN. I'll have to send second page of 1912 arrival on a separate reply.

Here's page 2. Looks like you might be right about Isaac being from the same village. They seem to be in the same place all the time. Karen
