6460. ALEXANDER SELKIRK NEWTON 3 (Rufus 2 , Ebenezer 1 of Keene),
son of Rufus and Sally (Brown) Newton of Keene, N. H., Rochester and Bran-
don, Vt., was born at Hubbardston, Vt. — "on the site of the . old battleground
of July 7, 1777"— February 7, 1823. He died at Forestdale, Vt., April 28, 1005.

He married, February 16, 1848, Silvia Hock of Brandon. "Her mother's
maiden name was Rich." She died February 17, 1859.

He married (2) at Pittsfield, Vt., August 25, 1860, Esther Alvira Austin,
daughter of Stillman and Louisa (Flanders) Austin* of Rochester, Vt., where
she was born May 23, 1838. She died at Salisbury, Vt., January 6, 1908.

Mr. Newton was educated in the public schools until fourteen years old, when
he learned the cabinet-maker's trade. Later he invented the first automatic
machine for novelty wood turning, which proved to be the foundation of an
enterprising business known as the "Newton & Thompson Manufacturing Com-
pany," established in 1856, in Brandon, Vt. ; and at the present time (1912) a
successful establishment, furnishing employment to a large number of people

* Louisa Flanders was the dau. of Moses and Sarah (George) Flanders of Antrim, N. H.

Sarah George of Weare, N. H., was the dau. of Simeon George, who is thought to have come
from Newburyport, Mass.

Simeon George and his five sons were in the Revolutionary War. Although I have been able
to find where most of the sons enlisted, I have not been able to find his enlistment. [Mrs.
Lelia Field.]

Stillman Austin was of Scotch descent — the name originally being McAstin, from that to
Astln and thence Austin. There are a great many of them buried in Rochester, Vt. [Same.]

in the village of Forestdale. Forestdale is in the town of Brandon, but a
village by itself about three miles from Brandon proper. There is no one of
the Newton name now in the business; but the family is represented in the
business in the person of the president of the company, Mr. Lewis Bump ; who
married a granddaughter of its founder, Alma E. Newton, daughter of Eugene
Alexander, son of Alexander S. Newton. The family have reason to be justly
proud of the achievements of their ancestor, and this is the proper and exact
place to mention his good works.

6581. EPHRAIM NEWTON 1 [I have not sufficient data to place this man;
but he is probably of the branch of Richard Newton 1 of Sudbury]. He was
born in Marlborough, Mass., October 9, 1782 [P. R], and died in Charlton,
Mass., May 6, 1846, aged 64 ; lung fever.

He married in Marlborough, Mass., October 29, 1800, Kate [Caty] Russell.
She was daughter of Oliver and Elizabeth (How) Russell of Marlborough and
Northborough, and born in Northborough, October 18, 1782. She died in North-
borough, Mass., in 1822 or 1823. Twelve children.

He married (2) in Worcester, Mass., February 7, 1838, Mrs. Vina Robbins.

I am told that this Ephraim Newton had a brother Sylvester, who lived in
Paxton, and another brother whose name was Brigham.

Ephraim Newton was a farmer. He had farms in Northborough, Millbury,
Westborough and Charlton, Mass. "Many of his children were born in North-
boro', and may be all of them," says his son. But the records there do not have
them. The two oldest children were born in Marlborough, Mass.

He died without a will, and his estate was administered by his son-in-law,
Artemas Goddard, at Charlton, in 1846. An abstract of administration and
list of papers follows :

SECTION II, PART I g69

6617. SYLVESTER NEWTON [perhaps the brother of Ephraim of Charl-
ton, and perhaps not] married in Northborough, Mass., November 10, 1819,
Sally Dalrymple, daughter of Samuel and Sarah (Bruce) Dalrymple of North-
borough, where she was born September 29, 1797. (See note to Ezekiel Newton 5
(Ezek. 4 ).)

Mr. Newton removed not long after marriage to Chester, Vt., and had children
born there. With the exception of one of them, I can give little more than their
names, which were :

6G18-G623. tl, Lucius F. ; 2, Nancy; 3, Mary Ann; 4, Harriet; 5, Solon, was

Chester, Vt., died at Oxford, Mass. , 1899. He married, age 23 years,

being then "of Chester, Vt., June 5, 1845, Almira Eunice Newton (5862), age 18,
daughter of Ezra Beaman and Sarah (Turner) Newton of West Boylston, Mass.,

first wife, Eunice Waite (5441). She was living in 1909 in Oxford, Mass. He

6624. i. Herbert, b. ; d. y.



6625. BRIGHAM NEWTON. There was a man of this name who married
at Cambridge, Mass., May 22, 1822, Eliza Ann Hunt, daughter of Stephen Hunt
of Charlestown, Mass. I do not know who they were.



6626. HIRAM NEWTON 1 , SR. [pedigree not known], was born in Lyndon,
Vt, about 1740. He died in Lyndon, Vt., in 1832, aged 92.

He married . "I presume born in Lyndon — one of the first settlers

there." [M. C. N.] "She was about the same age as her husband and died in
Lyndon, Vt., soon after he died. They had children born in Lyndon, Vt., and
may have had others," is the statement.

CHILDREN.

6627. i. Asahel 2 , b. ; d. in Lyndon, Vt. ; m. there, and had children, whose

names are :

6630. 1. Hamilton 3 , b. ; d. in Lyndon, Vt.

6631. 2. Cordelia 3 , b. ; d. in Lyndon, Vt.

6632. 3. Marilla 3 , b. ; d. in Lyndon, Vt.

6628. ii. Nathaniel 2 , b. . He left Vermont long before 1832. Where he

settled is unknown.

6629. iii. Hiram 2 , Jr., b. , in Lyndon, Vt. ; he m. Lucinda C. Calkins, b. in

Waterford, Vt., about 1801. She died there in 1873, aged 72. She was

the daughter of Calvin and Rhoda ( ) Calkins, one of the first

settlers in Lyndon, Vt. ("Calvin was born there and I presume his wife
was.")

Hiram Newton, Jr., was a victim of the drink habit. He left his family
about 1836 or 1837; came home once or twice; then was said to have died
in Massachusetts. His family was broken up while the children were
small, and each was put out, or took care of himself as best he could.
None of the children followed the habit of their father, but were bitter
against it. The children, six in number, were :

6633. 1. Hiram 3 , III, b. in 1820. "He left Vermont over 60 years ago" (before

1847). He married in Guildhall, Vt. ; was divorced from his wife, and
not heard from since. No children.
