future date in establishing the full line of descent. He writes : "There
was another family of Newtons living about six miles from Coalrun in Ohio.
The old man's name was Nathan — no relation to us. They were fine
people — well-to-do. I have seen the old man Nathan many times, and was
well acquainted with all these people." John moved to Iowa, I think about

6708. NATHANIEL NEWTON 1 [pedigree untraced. It seems to me as
though he may have heen a son of Jason 5 (293), whose sons, Jason 6 and Samuel 6 ,
removed to Lanesborough, in .Berkshire County, Mass., and later to Vermont.
Lanesborough is directly south of New Ashford, which was settled in 1762, by
emigrants from the eastern part of Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Con-
necticut. One of them was Samuel P. Tyler]. "He married in New Ashford,
Mass., we think," writes his grandson, "Elizabeth Tyler, who was born about
1744, and died in Georgia, Vt., July — , 1834, where she was buried (no stone)."
"She died when my father (Wm. T.) was ten years old and she was 90 at the time
she died."



SECTION II, PART I 673

"She left her husband, taking her three sons, Frederick and Harry and John,
coming from New Ashford, Mass., to Georgia, Vt., in 1798, where they after-
ward lived — and where she died at Frederick's house, when she was quite old.
She may have left other children in Massachusetts, I do not know." "Frederick's
father, I never saw nor heard much about, except that he came once to Georgia
to see his son Frederick." "He was a drinking man; that was the reason his
wife left him and brought her boys with her. We do not know what kind of
men Harry and John turned out to be; but Frederick was strictly temperate,
as were all his sons and grandsons. So she accomplished what she set out to
do — to bring up her children in the good way." I do not know the order of
these children, except that Frederick was youngest.

6709. i. Harry 2 , b. ; went to the southern part of Vermont. He and his

brother John went away for themselves not long after their mother settled
in Georgia, Vt.

6710. ii. Jon:x 3 , b. ; went to the state of Vermont.

6711. tiii. Frederick 2 , b. Aug. 23, 178Q; d. at Georgia, Vt, May 19, 1837. He married

in Georgia, Vt., Oct. 10, 1802, Anna Davis, youngest child of Stephen
Davis* of that town, where she was born Jan. 9, 1784. She died there
Feb. 24, 1852.

On Dec. 31, 1899, William Tyler Newton 3 , youngest son of Frederick 2 ,
had printed a copy of the names of the descendants of Frederick — the then
Newton family of Georgia, consisting of his ten children, forty-three grand-
children and nine great-grandchildren. It is to be regretted that he did not
include dates in this record, and other family records of his knowledge that
would have enhanced its value in great measure. His son, Mr. Henly S.
Newton, has not only contributed the data printed by his father, but has
supplied the lack of the dates ; and also given abundant new matter to
our record of this family. To him we are indebted for it all.

Frederick Newton 2 was eighteen years old when he came with his mother
and two brothers from Massachusetts to Vermont and with them estab-
lished a home there, the youngest of the three brothers. The family on

Stephen Davis and His Descendants,

bt William Tyler Newton, 1899."

Stephen Davis 1 came from Massachusetts to Georgia, Vt., in 1789. He purchased a mile of
government land on the east side of what is now the main road of that village, also the main
road from Montreal to Burlington, Vt. He gave $4.00 an acre for said land, which consisted
principally of forests, the road being shown by marked trees. He was a good citizen, upholding
the freedom and the principles of the United States Government of to-day.

He married a lady named ■ — Young, and they had a family of twelve children, three

sons and nine daughters. He lived in Georgia. Vt., thirteen years, dying in 1802, at the age of
66 years [= born about 1736]. He left to each son 260 acres of land property, and to each
daughter 130 acres = 1950 acres. His children and grandchildren were :

William Y. Davis, d. 1802, having buried three children.

Moses Davis, d. Sept. 30, 1827, aged 54 [=b. 1773], leaving sons: Harry, Young, and
Jackson.

Betsey Davis, m. Luther Taylor and had children : Absolom, Young, Betsey (wife of C. V.
Bliss).

Polly Davis, d. in 1829, aged 76 [— b. 1753], m. Hon. Frederick Bliss.

Stephen Davis, d. in 1845, aged 74 [=b. 1771]. His children were: Stephen, Warner,
Ransel, Harmon, Alvira and Loverna.

Becky Davis, m. Edman Lamo. Their children were Edman, Osburn, Manly, Heman, Lautha
and Samantha.

Patty Davis, m. Robert Weightman. Their children were : John, Mary, Young, Adam, Moses,
Alexander, Anna, and Patty Weightman.

Electa Davis, m. Solomon Bliss. Their children were: Sidney, Steven, Solomon, Jr., Orin,
Becky, Betsy Bliss.

A daughter, Davis, who m. Elijah Herrick. Their children were: Moses, Elijah and

Luther Herrick.

A daughter, Davis, who m. Timothy Sibley. They had several children, the writer

does not know their names.

A daughter, Davis, who m. Mr. Johnson. No children.

Anna Davis, the youngest daughter, m. in 1802 Frederick Neicton, of Massachusetts, son of
Nathaniel and his wife Elizabeth (Tyler) Newton of Massachusetts [prob. New Ashford].

The order of the above children is not correct. That is evident. A few more dates would
straighten matters. But as a whole the matter is of value, coming as it does from a member
of the family, whose family record it is. [E. N. L.]

arrival in Georgia, Vt.. moved into one of Mr. Stephen Davis' houses, and
later Mr. Newton married the daughter of Mr. Davis, and that property
was given by her father to her — 130 acres. Thus the Newton homestead
in Georgia came to them through Anna Davis, wife of Frederick Newton.
It was good property and a productive farm. Frederick Newton built a
substantial frame house — one and one half stories — that is still in a good
state of preservation, now owned and inhabited by his grandson, Irving
Newton, who received it from his father, William, buying out the shares
of his bi'others and sisters in the property. Here Mr. and Mrs. Newton
made a home that was to see the birth of eleven children ; the death of
six of them while under the age of 30 years, principally of consumption,
two dying within the same year more than once. After the birth of their
grandson, Heman Newton, there had been sixteen deaths in the old Newton
home, against twenty-six births.

Frederick Newton was a powerfully built man. Although he was a
farmer, he cut the timber, framed and built for himself the house he
lived in, and two barns, without a mistake. He had a mechanical turn
of mind. All the schooling he had was included in twenty-one days — and
studying at home in the evenings. The education of many was acquired
in the same manner in those days: One can but admire the persistence,
and the high standard. His posterity show the same mechanical skill.
They are all at carpenter, cabinet and mason work, as the results of their
labors show, although most of them live on farms. They are all fond of
music, and are good singers — boys and girls, men and women. William
Tyler Newton had an exceptionally sweet tenor voice. The men were
lovers of good horses — therefore excellent teamsters. Of Mr. Newton's
eleven children, only four lived to marry. Children were:

0712. 1. Isaac Young*, b. Aug. 14, 1803; d. at Georgia. Vt.. Aug. 25. 1847; burial

6721. WILLIAM TYLEE NEWTON 3 (Frederick 2 ), born September 16,
1823; a farmer in Georgia, Vt. ; resided on the homestead of his parents, and
had born to him there, fourteen children. He died April 19, 1902, in the hospital
at St. Albans, Vt. He married in Georgia, Vt., May — , 1845, Charlotte Cald-
well, daughter of Samuel and Sarah (Pattee) Caldwell of Georgia, Vt., where
she was born March 31, 1825, and where she died March 21, 1893. Cancer.

Mr. Newton was a tall man, spare built. He had dark, curly hair and black
eyes. He was not a man of great physical strength, hut possessed a sleight
of hand that could turn off more work in less time, and easier than many a
stronger man. He was of a nervous temperament, loved music and had an
exquisite voice. He taught all his children to read music and to sing, and sang
with them a great deal. All the four parts were carried by the family, and there
was "Music in the Air," when they all took up the strain.

He was a lover of horses and oxen, and always kept good ones of both. He
counted it a favor to him, if he were permitted to break in steers for his neigh-
bors — doing it all by voice and kindness, never using the whip. He had the
same gentle control over his children, whom he taught to obey, and to work, and
to become self-respecting men and women. "None of them drank, smoked or
chewed tobacco, danced, played cards or read dime novels."

He lived on the old home place, which later his son owned, all of his life. One
day he was shoving kindling wood under the kitchen stove and got a splinter in
his right hand. It did not heal; developed into a cancer. He went to the
hospital at St. Albans, Vt., where the arm was taken off above the elbow. That
healed and he was well for about a year, when the cancer broke out under the
arm. He went again to the hospital, and had another operation. It did not heal.
He lived several weeks at the hospital, and then died there. His body was
brought home and the funeral was from the residence where so many of his
family had died. [Henly S. Newton.] His children were:

running the dynamo that lights the City of Sparta, runs the flour mill,
etc., until 1903, when he returned to Vermont, and settled at Albany.
