Ancestry of Wayne Newton
 
compiled by William Addams Reitwiesner
 
 

The following material on the immediate ancestry of Wayne Newton should not be considered either exhaustive or authoritative, but rather as a first draft.  
 
Mr. Newton claims to have Amerindian ancestry. For example, http://www.waynenewton.com/bio.html, refers to his childhood medical problems, and says "The stamina that would see him through this and many other difficult periods he credits to his Powahatan Indian/Irish father, who overcame his own poverty-stricken background, and his Cherokee Indian/German mother." The webpage also says "Wayne is very proud of his Native American heritage and had the distinguished honor of hosting the first ever 'Native American Music Awards,' where he was voted 'Native American Entertainer of the Year.'" None of these claims (of Native American ancestry) appear to be supported in the ancestry as shown below.

NOTES
 
 
 
 
 
 
513 -- She is often claimed to have been a granddaughter of Isaac Allerton, the Mayflower passenger. This claim appears to be inaccurate. See Mayflower Descendant 42:117-122.  
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
FURTHER NOTES
 
 
 
 
The National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR) publishes a Patriot Index, a list of persons whose honorable service in the cause of independence during the American Revolution renders their female descendants eligible for membership in the NSDAR. Several ancestors of Wayne Newton appear in the Patriot Index, including:


    John Newton (number 64)

While Mr. Newton is not eligible for membership in the NSDAR (by not being female), he is eligible for membership in the equivalent organization for men, the National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution.
