bullet  General Notes:

Florence and her husband, Robert Newsom, were killed by their nephew, Frederick Robert "Fritz" Klenner. Florence's body was found lying on the floor in her mother-in-law's living room. She had apparently struggled with her attacker and had been stabbed many times and shot in her chest and her temple. Her diamond engagement ring was stolen, perhaps to make it look like a burglary.


Florence married Robert Wesley Newsom Jr., son of Robert Wesley Newsom Sr. and Hattie Arbelle Carter, on 25 Aug 1945 in Reidsville, Rockingham Co, N.C. (Robert Wesley Newsom Jr. was born on 4 Feb 1920 in Winston-Salem, Forsyth Co., N.C. and died on 18 May 1985 in Greensboro, Guilford Co., N.C..)
