After that I suppose he is the person called "William C. Newton" (since
there is no other William mentioned) who became an active and trusted
citizen in the affairs of the town! as police officer and on school com-
mittee ; constable and town clerk 1848 ; moderator of the town meeting
1859 ; and agent to repair the town boat and to use the surplus town

6395. EBENEZER NEWTON 1 of Keene, N. H. [ancestry not known, but
probably descended from Richard 1 ] was born about 1740, and died at Rochester,
Vt. His grave, in the cemetery in Rochester village, is marked by a headstone
inscribed :

"Ebenezer Newton »

Died May 14, 1814
Aged 74 years."

He married at Keene, N. H, both being residents of Keene, by Rev. Clement
Sumner, on June 2, 1768, Susannah Hubert, [also written Hobert and Hubbard.]
She is supposed to have come from Milton or Braintree, Mass. Whose daughter
she was I have not learned; but would suggest that she is probably descended
from the immigrant Edmund Hubbard who settled at Hingham, Mass. She
was born about 1750 and died at Rochester, Vt., at the home of her son David,
where she had spent her last years. She is buried in the North Hollow Cemetery,
where her headstone is inscribed :

"Susanna Newton, wife of Ebenezer Newton,

Died June 2, 1838,

Aged 88 years."

Mr. Newton came, from somewhere unknown to me, to Keene, N. H., when
quite a young man — a youth, in fact, for he was there in 1754, and it is
recorded of him that he was a soldier during the French and Indian wars of
1754-1757 from Keene. His service was in connection with General Amherst's

NEWTON GENEALOGY



Army, which captured Ticonderoga. The tradition in the family is that he
was one of the scouts or pioneers across the Green Mountains from Charlestown,
jj g jj. — No. 4, it was then designated — to Ticonderoga. He was young for such
service, if the dates on his headstone are correct. But at that time both young
and old were out to defend their homes.

The next date on the records is his marriage in 1768.

In 1770, Ebenezer Newton, with others, was given liberty by the town to
build pews in the meetinghouse at Keene, and to divide them among themselves
as they should agree. This would indicate that Ebenezer was something of a
carpenter, by this time.

About 1775 we find Ebenezer Newton on a muster roll of Keene in a company
of 117 officers and men, with an "Alarm List" of 45 men. "A list of the foot
Company of Keene." The alarm list was made up of older and not fully able-
bodied men. They were not expected to go far from their homes, but to protect
them, while the younger men followed the enemy.

April 12, 1776, Ebenezer Newton signed the "Association Test" of loyalty.

November 22, 1776, Ebenezer Newton signed a petition for a pest-house for
Keene.

In 1776 Ebenezer Newton was connected with the New Hampshire militia as
a soldier of the Revolution. He was enrolled in Col. Ashley's regiment, which
participated in the battle of Bennington on August 16, 1777.

June 29, 1777, Col. Ashley marched against Burgoyne. Among the enlisted
men was Ebenezer Newton of Keene, N. H.

In 1790, the First United States Census gives our Ebenezer Newton still at
Keene, N. H., where his family consists of himself — i. e., one male and six
females. This would prove that he was still a citizen of Keene and did not
move to Rochester, Yt., so early as 1780, as the family supposed. The war
was well over and the country settled down before he changed his residence.
Thus his children were all born at Keene, N. H., and are recorded on the town
books. Mrs. Hester (Page) Dunham, now living on what was supposed to be
his home place in Rochester, Vt., writes : "Ebenezer Newton was my great-grand-
father, but this place was never his. It was settled by his son, David Newton,
in 1800, and if he ever made his home here it was not a permanent one."

Hatch Tavern in Boston; operated for many years the line of coaches between
Boston and Providence, R. I., the half-way house of which was at North
Attleboro, Mass.

Mary Gerould was a lineal descendant of Dr. Jacques Jerould [Gerould], a
Huguenot, who came to America in the eighteenth century.

Rev. Dr. Adin H. Newton, in his early years, lived in Moretown, Vt. ; in
1828, he lived in Rochester, Vt., with his cousin, David Newton, 2d (6407) ;
went to North Attleboro, Mass., about 1838; married in 1845; was ordained a
preacher of the Methodist Episcopal Church, and stationed at Westport, Hing-
ham and Truro, Mass. His voice gave out and he gave up the ministry and
studied medicine. As a physician, at Truro, in 1854, he practiced medicine
there until 1866, when he moved to Chatham, Mass. ; in 1876 moved to Province-
town, Mass. ; retired in 1891, when he went to Everett, Mass., where he lived
the remainder of his life.

Mr. Newton held many public offices; was Representative to the General
Court in 1858-9; was always esteemed as a citizen and as a man. He had a
wide reputation as a skillful physician. Dr. and Mrs. Newton celebrated their
golden wedding in Everett. They lived together more than sixty years, before
death called them. Their children were:

Smith of Chatham. Mr. Newton was a teacher throughout his manhood
life — an accomplished scholar. Offered the superintendency of schools at
various time, he declined, preferring to teach. When fourteen years of

was graduated from the high school ; 1876 was graduated from the State
Normal School at Bridgewater ; teacher in the grammar school at Essex ;
principal of the high school at Westport ; master of the grammar schools
at Marlborough, Provincetown, Taunton, Somerville; sub-master of
Lyman and Emerson schools at East Boston, and lastly master of the

much attention to these branches in connection with his teaching. He
studied history under Professor Hart of Harvard University, and psychol-
ogy with Dr. Larkin Dunton of Boston Normal School. He was a member
of several teachers' clubs and associations and musical societies, which often
led to his filling positions as choirmaster and soloist in several churches.
He was a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church, and of its official
board. His widow and three of his four children survive.

* The following from the Boston Transcript, 1011, is relative and interesting: "Ex-Repre-
sentative Newton of Everett, who ranks as one of the substantial guns of the Republican party,
took three letters in shorthand the other day, though he had not tried it for fifteen years.
He also read back his notes. He was in a group discussing the ease with which such arts are
lost through lack of practice, when he ventured the suggestion he could call it back. When he
had finished he explained that when just out of college he followed Governor Robinson in the
famous Butler campaign around the State and reported him for the Boston Journal. He
thought that experience helped to fix it firmly in his mind.*'



SECTION II, PART I 663

6401. RUFUS NEWTON 2 (Ebenezer 1 of Keene), son of Ebenezer and Sus-
annah (Hubbard) Newton of Keene, N. H., and Rochester, Vt., was born at
Keene, N. H., March — , 1780, and died at Brandon, Vt., September 8, 1857,
aged 78 years, 6 months; cause of death, consumption. Burial with his wife
at Brandon, Vt. Headstones inscribed.

He married at Keene, N. H., Rev. Aaron Hall officiating, August 19, 1802,
Sally Brown, daughter of Joseph and Keziah (Day) Brown* of Keene, N. H.,
where she was born [October 20], 1781. She died at Brandon, Vt., July 20,
1863, aged 81 years, 9 months. G. S. "Ten children, of whom eight became
adults."

Mr. Newton was a farmer. When he removed from Keene, N. H., we do not
know, but we do know that he settled in Brandon, Vt., where he lived many
years.

He was a soldier in the War of 1812, and was gone with the army for several
years; was given up as dead, so long was the time he was not heard from, but
finally returned. Eight children were living before his war service and two were
born after his return. [That is the family report. We regret we have the
birth dates of but two of the ten children and we cannot be sure when they were
born.] The family was poor and the children had to get out and work soon, as
farmer's children always do. His capable wife was taken care of in her last years
