6837. NATHANIEL NEWTON 2 (son of Anthony E. Newton (6836), whose

of cholera at Wheeling, W. Va., June 17, 1851, aged 69.

He married in Pennsylvania, town and date not known, Mrs. Anna (Batter-
son) Slaterly, daughter of Leonard and (Dodd) Batterson of Phillips-
burg, Warren County, N. J., where she was born Sept. 5, 1786. She died in
Beverly, Ohio, November 14, 1857. Her first husband, Mr. Slaterly, died in
Iowa a short time after their marriage. By him she had a son, Leonard Slaterly,
born Feb. 17, 1813, who was brought up by his grandfather, Batterson, and took
his name, Leonard Slaterly Batterson. He married, and died. His widow, Mrs.
C. Batterson was living in 1907 in Keota, Keokuk Co., Iowa, aged 90 years.
The father of Leonard Batterson, Sr., "was born in England, I think," is the

statement. As to the wife, Dodd, "Father [Mark A.] said he had an

uncle by the name of Dodd."

Anthony R. Newton's wife had sisters Jane (m. David VanZile), and Rebecca
(m. Jacob Rowley). The above is all the knowledge the now living descendants
have of the old people.

Nathaniel Newton 2 was five years old when his father died [—1787]. He
was brought up his aunts, Mrs. VanZile and Mrs. Rowley, sisters of his mother,
in Vermont, and came with them from Vermont to Tioga County, N. T., where
they settled. After his marriage he settled for a time in Durgy, Bradford
County, Pa., where four of his children were born. His trade was shoemaker,
but he was also a farmer.

"A man by the name of Durgy kept a country store there which gave name
to the place, where the mail came once a week. About three miles up the river
a man by the name of Ridgeway started a like store — at either place the farmers
could trade and the boys sell their coon skins." Between 1830 and 1832, Mr.
Newton moved from Durgy to Akron, Summit Co., Ohio, where he took up
land by the "Squatter's Claim" method. Later he removed to Sandusky, Ohio,
and from there went to Columbus, Ohio; thence to Moscow Mills, Ohio, and
last to Wheeling, W. Va., where he died. Being a shoemaker, he went where
work was most abundant. Mr. Newton was a medium-sized, athletic man. His
wife was of larger frame. Their children were :

G838. i. Lewis 3 , b. Jan. IS, 1819, at Ridgeway, Pa. ; d. at Poinette, Wis., Jan. 14,
1902 ; m. at Farmington, Tioga County, Pa., Jan. 7, 1841, Emily Edgbert,

Newton was a farmer— three miles from Keeneyville, Pa. ; then four
miles from Middleburg, Pa., until 1854, when he removed to Wisconsin,
arriving April 15, 1854, and settling at Arlington, in Columbia County.
The family still own the land there and have a cottage, to which they
"go home" every summer. His children are :

which the general welfare of his section is concerned have for him an
abiding and commanding interest, and his well-established capacity for
safely and successfully administering them has made him the choice of
his people for offices of great trust and responsibility. He was treasurer
of his county from 1895 to 1899, and was elected to the State Legisla-
ture in 1900. In politics, Mr. Newton has always been a Republican,
but he has the unqualified esteem of all his fellow citizens without
regard to party predilections, having always faithfully administered any
trust with which he was charged, for the general good. In the Legis-
lature he introduced and presented for passage a bill transferring to
the school fund the unclaimed $30,000 which figured in recent legislative
history."

In 1907 Mr. Newton sold his holdings in Montana and returned to
Ohio, purchasing a home in Marietta, where his children are being
educated in high school and college. He also has a fine farm in the
Muskingum Valley, Ohio, thus combining the advantages of city and
country life. His children are :

sin, James West. "Aunt Caroline moved to Wisconsin when I was quite
young." [Edw. B. N.] There is mention of "Caroline West's family" —
were there children by second husband? Children:

6872. 1. Harvey* Langley, Jr., b. .

6873. "2. Nicholas Bird* Langley, b. ; was living in 1910 in Wisconsin.

6841. iv. John Linn Webb 3 , b. Jan. 5, 1824, or 1825 ; was living January, 1910,

with his daughter in North Milwaukee, Wis. ; m. Catherine Woods,
daughter of William and Ann (Slater) Woods of Center Township, Guern-
sey County, Ohio, where she was b. March 23, 1S28. She d. at Madison,
Wis., April 6, 1900. Mr. Newton lived at Beverly, Ohio, "four miles up the
river." April 16, 1865, he moved from Ohio and settled in Wisconsin.
In 1869 his home was in Madison, Wis., which place continued to be his
residence until about 1909, when he went to live with his daughter, Mrs.
Brown, in Milwaukee, then aged about 85, "in good health and memory,
but somewhat deaf." Mr. Newton was a captain and colonel in the Ohio
Militia, and was out in the Civil War — assisted to drive the rebel Morgan
out of the state. His children all died before becoming of age, except the
three here given :

6874. 1. Martha A.*, b. , 1845; m. January, 1863, Daniel S. Slater. He

was a soldier in the Civil War, enlisting 1861 in the three months
service, and when mustered out, his guardian made him stay out and
complete his trade. The next year, May, 1862, he started to go to
Nashville, Tenn., to enlist in the same company with his brother. They
were captured by General Morgan's men, parolled, and sent home with
a number of soldiers on furlough. There joining the militia, he helped
capture some of Morgan's men in their raid through Ohio. November,
1863, he enlisted in the 18th Ohio Volunteer Infantry, and was mastered
out at the close of the war. Mr. and Mrs. Slater were living in 1910,
at No. 650 North Kalamazoo Ave., Marshall, Mich. Children not sent
me, but one is Mrs. W. W. Cook.

6875. 2. Amanda*, b. . .

6875a. 3. Florence*, b. .

[This record of Mr. Newton's children leaves much to be desired. From
the data given, I suppose one of these daughters is the wife of Dr. L. S.
Brown. She "has always lived in Madison, Wis., until Nov. 24, 1909,
her husband died, and she is now here [January, 1910, Milwaukee] at her
daughter's, Mrs. G. E. Morton, No. 271 Twenty-fourth St., Milwaukee."
The other daughter must be "Mrs. A. T. Brown, at North Milwaukee,"
