331. 5. JAMES NEWTON 2 (son of Isaac 1 ), born 1784, at Goshen, Conn.;
died at Charleston, Portage County, Ohio, 1854. Interment there. He married
Sophia Coe (see above). She outlived her husband, remaining his widow; was
living in 1872 on the homestead. She had five children.

Mr. Newton left Goshen when quite a young man, going to Hudson, Ohio,
where his sister Eunice lived, and went into the mercantile business with her
husband. Later he purchased a large farm in Charleston, Ohio, where he amassed
quite a fortune. He and his wife were active members of the Methodist Church —
generous with their funds. He was tall of stature, keen eyes, somewhat stern
in character and critical of others, but withal quite social and friendly, caring
much for family ties. His children were:

to me. The "Wife of Isaac Newton" was admitted to the church in Goshen,
Conn., in 1807. She died April 15, 1849. At an early period of his married life
Mr. Newton removed from Goshen to East Bloomfield, N. Y., and became a suc-
cessful farmer. He had a business capacity which led him into large and bold
speculations. He accumulated wealth rapidly — and often met severe losses. At
the time of his death he was much embarrassed with debt. He had a capricious
temperament, but was of deep religious impressions. He died at his homestead,
aged 62. His children were:

Goshen, Conn., to East Bloomfield, N. Y. He was born in the latter
place, Feb. 8, 1797. They lived in East Bloomfield until after the births
there of their children, then the family moved to Mount Clemens, Mich.

to fall into the hands of strangers. She took the matter into her own hands,
assuming the responsibility absolutely, and with uncommon business talent,
judgment, indomitable energy and perseverance — and many years of weary
toil, she redeemed the home, paid the debts, and became the sole owner of
the homestead farm, where she lived many years to enjoy the fruits
thereof.

REV. ROGER NEWTON 721

In 1807 he returned to Connecticut, where he taught school a few years, mar-
ried and had two sons. In 1813 he removed to Hudson, Ohio, taking his family
with him. After a few years there he settled on a farm in Richfield — a town
about ten miles from Hudson, Ohio — where he became a successful farmer,
accumulating quite a competence.

He was genial and social in temperament. He and his wife united with the
Presbyterian Church at Richfield, and were devout and humble Christians. At
the age of 50 years he was elected to the Assembly of Ohio ; was also Associate
Judge under the Constitution of 1802 (Ohio) and held other offices of the county.

He was devotedly attached to his children, and when three of them, attacked
with dysentery, died within ten days, he became almost insane through grief.
He had not recovered from the blow, although ten years had elapsed, when three
other of his little ones were taken from him within a week's time, through
scarlet fever. He died at his home in Richfield, in peace and faith at last,
aged 81 years. His children were:

REV. ROGER NEWTON 723

Mr. Newton acquired a large tract of land in Richfield, Ohio, and became
a successful farmer and a dealer in fine cattle and other stock. He possessed
good business talent and superior judgment. He had indomitable energy and
