1727. CHARLES NEWTON 5 (Elisha 4 , Moses 3 , Moses 2 , Richard 1 ), son of
Elisha and Sarah (Tomlin) Newton of Marlborough and Shrewsbury, Mass.,
was born at Shrewsbury, August 28, 1742, and died at Princeton, Mass., Decem-
ber 10, 1831, aged 89. G. S.

He married at [the marriage probably took place at Westborough,

October 4, 1765, although the record gives it as "int." in both towns, that in
Shrewsbury being Sept. 30], to Tabitha Bouker, daughter of Josiah and Hassa-
diah (Eager) Bouker* of Westborough, Mass., where she was born April 18,
1749. She died at Princeton, Mass., March 5, 1827, T. R., or March 3, 1829,
aged 80, G. S., probably the latter date.

Mr. Newton lived in Shrewsbury until after the births of five children; and
there may have been others born elsewhere. He removed to Princeton as early
as 1803, in which year his daughter, Tabitha, was married there "at the house
of Charles Newton." He evidently lived the remainder of his life at Prince-
ton, for there he and his wife died and are buried.

The Eirst United States Census, 1790, shows the family of Charles Newton
of Princeton to consist of himself, one male under sixteen years, and three
females.

Charles Newton was a soldier of the Revolution. Abstract of service: "Pri-
vate in Capt. John Maynard's Company, Col. Job Cushing's regiment, marched
August 21, 1777, discharged August 23, 1777, service six days including three
(60 miles) days travel home. Company marched to Hadley on Alarm at Ben-
nington. Roll dated at Shrewsbury."

Mr. and Mrs. Newton resided in Shrewsbury, where two children were born

and had eight children.



1776. SOLOMON NEWTON 5 (Amos 4 , Sr., Moses 3 , Moses 2 , Kichard 1 ), son
of Amos, Sr., and Azubah (Newton) Newton, of Southborough, Mass., was
born there October 12, 1738. He died before the death of his father in 1797, and
possibly before 1790.

He married and had seven children, who are mentioned in the will of his
father, who gives them a bequest of £50. Where they were born, or who their
mother was, is unknown to me. He seems to have lived in some town not far
away. He was not head of a household in the United States Census, 1790; for
there were only three of that name, all accounted for.

Solomon Newton is mentioned in the will of his father, but is given no por-
tion. The bequest is to "my grandchildren, heirs of my son Solomon," naming
them. This would indicate that Solomon had died before the dating of the
will. To these heirs is given £50.

1793. BEZALEEL NEWTON 5 (Amos 4 , Sr., Moses 3 , Moses 2 , Richard 1 ), son
of Amos, Sr., and Azubah (Newton) Newton of Southborough, Mass., was born
there May 10, 1747. He died between March 15, 1798, and the time his estate
was administered in 1799. Administrator appointed April 2, 1799.

He married at Southborough, Mass., December 20, 1769, Molly Ward, daugh-
ter of Absalom and Mary (Wilkinson) Ward* of Southborough, where she was
born April 20, 1746. She married (2) at Southborough, September 18, 1800,
David Damon of Ashby, Mass.

Bezaleel Newton was a farmer and a blacksmith. He probably settled in
Ashby, where his older sister was living, soon after his marriage. None of his
children are recorded in Southborough, nor is his death recorded there, although
in the administration of his estate he is mentioned as "late of Southborough,"
as though a resident of that town.

He was a soldier of the Revolution for a short period. An abstract of service
reads : "Bezaleel Newton. Ashby. Private in Capt. Stone's company of Min-
ute-men, Col. William Prescott's regiment, Marched April 19, 1775, served 7*
days."

Bezaleel Newton was the head of a family in Ashby, Mass., at the taking of
the First United States Census, 1790. Besides himself, the family consisted of
one male above sixteen years, one male below sixteen years, and three females.

In the administration of the estate of Bezaleel Newton, Sr., there seems to
have been a will, as mention is made of "legacies" going to his relatives Solo-
mon Newton and Thankful Newton and Daniel Fay, "by will."

February 6, 1798, he gave a note of hand to Peter Fay. On March 15, 1798,
he gave another note to Peter Fay. This is the last date I have of him, living.
His son was appointed administrator April 2, 1799, the widow assenting. Thus
he died between those two dates.

From the account of the accrued interest on these notes, and those to and
from the minor son Amos, and the citation to the widow of Bezaleel and her
present husband, it would appear the settlement of the estate covered several
years in time.

"There is five Heirs to this estate." I suppose these children are set down in
the order of their births. Bezaleel, Jr., "the oldest heir," being in 1790 "above

He married at Southborough, December 21, 1769 [T. R.], Rhoda Ward, daugh-
ter of Absalom and Mary (Wilkinson) Ward of Soutkborougk, wkere ske was
born July 20, 1742. She died there "Widow Rhoda Newton, November 4, 1827,

At date of the Eirst United States Census, 1790, he was the head of a house-

Jabez Newton died without making a will. His estate was settled at South-
borough by administrator in 1799. Case in Probate, No. 43,222.

An abstract of the settlement of his widow's estate is here given. Their son
Ezekiel, appointed administrator, probably lived with her. The administration
of his (the son Ezekiel) estate also is kere given. He appears to kave kad no

given to tke son Ezekiel during tkeir lifetime.
