He compiled from the records of Connecticut and Rhode Island an excel-
lent collection in the early generations of Thomas Newton of Fairfield,
giving authority for each item. Every member of the family should
possess a copy, since I can give here merely the vital statistics. To him
and to his aunt, Mrs. Hayes, I am indebted for records of this family.

THOMAS OF FAIRFIELD 745

85. DR. ASA W. NEWTON 6 (son of Dea. John 5 and Martha), born June 27,
1803; "married and at one time lived in Kentucky," is the statement. In a
letter written by him to his brother Ambrose, and dated "Flat Rock, July 5,
1842," he signs himself, "A. W. Newton, M.D.," mentions "My family . . .
in the enjoyment of health and we are once more blessed with a fine daughter,
who is upwards of 5 months old. My business is still flourishing and my suc-
cess in life has been far beyond my expectations. I am comfortably situated
in one of the most fertile and healthful climates upon the face of the globe."
From other references it would seem this home was in Kentucky, directly south
from Cincinnati, near the Tennessee line. The child above mentioned would be
at least a second daughter and born about February, 1842. We regret that we
have not more facts regarding this earnest Christian physician. The names only
of his children can here be given :

114a. i. William R. 7 , b. .

115. ii. Makgaret Eliza 7 , b. ; prob. m. a Mr. Wilson.

116. iii. Ada 7 , b. ; prob. m. a Mr. Austin.

117. iv. Mary Amanda 7 , b. ; prob. d. unm.



23. JAMES NEWTON 5 (2d son of John 4 , James 3 , Jr.), born October 4,
1759 (or 1760) ; died in the town of Hartwick, Otsego County, N. Y., in his
84th year. He married in Connecticut, Elizabeth Lee. They lived at least six-
teen years after marriage in Colchester, Conn., where their first five children
were born, and in 1804 he was in Peru, Mass., with his family, where four more
children were born and where all of them are recorded. The last two are credited
to "James Newton and wife." [There is also in Peru the record of the death of
"Mary Newton widow of James," died in Peru, January 5, 1817. It seems to
me it should have been recorded widow of John, and that this is the death of
Mary (Holbrook) Newton, the mother of the James Newton 5 , whom we are
considering. The statement concerning her is that "she died in 1818."] Mr.
James Newton 5 was for many years a member of the Presbyterian Church.
He is probably the James Newton in New London County, Conn., enumerated
in the U. S. Census, 1790, 1-2-1. Children:

Daniel , b. June 10, 1789 ; d. before 1856.

Mary , b. Sept. 29, 1792 [perhaps the one who m. in Peru, Mass., March 15,

1810, Henry Emmons].
John , b. Oct. 17, 1794; was living in 1856.
Mehitabel , b. Sept. 28, 1797.
William , b. April 27, 1800 ; d. before 1856.
Thomas 8 , b. June 13, 1804 ; was living in 1856.
Lydia 8 , b. Aug. 12, 1806.
James Lee 8 , b. March 8, 1810; was living in 1856. See Newtons not traced,

James L., perhaps.

25. ABEL NEWTON 5 (son of John 4 and Mary), born June 9, 1763, at Col-
chester, Conn.; died July 15, 1838, "on the Sabbath day," at Otsego, N. Y.
Burial there, in Metcalf Hill Cemetery, the public burying ground which was
on the farm then owned by the family. He married about 1789, "at tbe age of
24," Alsa Loomis (also written Elsie), daughter of John and Rachel (Harris)
Loomis of Salem, Conn. She was born January 19, 1769, and died August 22,
1850 (also given "Sept., 1850"), "at Cooperstown, N. Y.," or Otsego, N. Y.
Burial beside her husband. The First United States Census, 1790, shows Abel
Newton and his wife and one son in New London County, Conn. In 1794 he
removed with his family from Colchester, Conn., to Warren, Herkimer County,



74G NEWTON GENEALOGY

N. Y. "The families of Mr. Israel Loornis, Walter Warren and Bond Bigelow
removed at the same time with him," writes his son, making the journey of
about two hundred miles with teams of oxen and carts, in eighteen days. They
bought lands and made homes from the forests. Mr. Newton and his wife united
with the Baptist Church at Warren. In March, 1837, with the family of their
son Amasa, they removed from Warren to the town and county of Otsego, N. Y.,
where they died. His children, with the exception of the oldest, were born at
Warren, N. Y. Children were:

127. ti. Amasa 6 , b. Dec. 14, 1780; in. (1) Elizabeth Douglas; m. (2) Mrs. Mary

Hutching.

128. ii. Alsa (also given Elsie), b. March 5, 1792; d. Aug. 10, 1S4G, aged 54; unru.

129. iii. Lydia , b. Aug. 2, 1704; d. Aug. 4, 1705.

130. iv. Elias", b. Dec. 7, 1790; d. at North East, Pa., May 12, 1850, aged 53; m.

in 1S20, Laura Gay, dau. of Rodolphus and Anna (Loomis) Gay of North
East, Pa. She was b. in 1800, and d. in 1875. Mr. Newton moved soon
after marriage to Volney, Oswego County, N. Y., where he bought a farm
and resided ten or twelve years. Then he sold out and removed to the
town of North East, Fa., which was a more desirable section, where he
became a successful farmer. He left a large family of children, some of
whom went West, and some were living on the paternal estate in 185G. The
oldest daughter married and died a year or two after, at the age of 22
years. I only know the names of the four following children :

131. 1. Warren 1 , b. . 1S28; d. , 1804.

132. 2. Jnlhr, b. , 1830 ; m. Cole.

133. 3. John', b. , 1832; m. in North East. Pa.

130. vi. Lyman", b. Sept. 8, 1807; d. Oct. — , 1854, at Sycamore, 111. He m. in 1820.
Catherine Emerson, dau. of Jacob Emerson of German Flats, Herkimer
County, N. Y., and lived several years after the marriage with his father,
during which time he and his wife united with the Baptist Church there.
Later he removed to German Flats for a few years, then bought a place
in Albion, Orleans County, N. Y., which proved to be an unhealthy,
undesirable place, which he sold, and bought another in Elbe, Genesee
County, N. Y., where he enlarged his farm and prospered. About 1844 he
sold this farm at a high price and bought in the town of Newstead', Erie
County, N. Y., where he remained eight years, then once more sold out
and removed with his family to Illinois, where he died leaving an estate
something above $10,000, and three sons and five daughters. I regret not
to be able to record these children.



127. AMASA NEWTON (eldest son of Abel 5 and Alsa), born December 14,
1789, at Colchester, Conn.; died at Afton, Bock County, Wis., August 29, 1860.
He married April 27, 1817, Elizabeth Douglas of Warren, N. Y., who bore him
ten children and died at Otsego, N. Y., April 28, 1853, aged 60 years. Consump-
tion. He married (2) Mrs. Mary Hutchins of Cooperstown, N. Y., widow of
Rev. Stephen Hutchins of the Baptist Church.

Mr. Newton was a man with a love of reading — a thirst for knowledge. The
necessity to toil could not prevent him, and being possessed of good memory
and persistence, he obtained a knowledge of good literature only possessed by
lovers of it. He united with the Baptist Church, as did his four oldest chil-
dren. Four of his sons and three of his daughters have been school teachers.
After his marriage he continued to reside on his farm in Warren, N. Y., where
all of his children were born. In 1837 he sold this farm and bought 150 acres
at Metcalf Hill, Otsego, N. Y., to which the family (consisting of himself,
wife, ten children, his father, mother and sister) removed. Here several of the
family died, and the venture was not a success. In 1852 he sold this farm, and
later bought one in Burlington, N. Y., to which the family removed in 1853.
In 1856 his two youngest sons were with him on this farm. In that year he



THOMAS OF FAIRFIELD 747

wrote a "Biographical Notice of Deacon John Newton of Middlefield, Mass.,"
etc., his ancestry and descendants, for the benefit of his children. From, it much
of this sketch is taken. The Loomis Genealogy states that he died the next
year at Afton, Wis., and that he lived there — error possibly. His children were:

10. MAJOR ISRAEL NEWTON 3 (son of James 2 and Mary), born March
5, 1694; died at Cape Breton, May 24, 1745; married Hannah Butler of Hart-



748 NEWTON GENEALOGY

ford, Conn. She was born about 1692, and died May 28, 1780, in her 88th year.
The house in which they lived in Colchester was still standing in 1911 and was
occupied by a Jewish family. A picture of it shows a large two-story building
with kitchen ell and attic, in old Colonial style.

Major Newton was a prominent man in his day and generation. He held
many offices of trust and honor in the town of Colchester, Conn., and in the
Colony: Deputy to the General Assembly for many terms, Justice of the Peace,
Captain of the train-band, appointed Major of the forces sent to Cape Breton,
March 14, 1745. "This Assembly grants to Israel Newton, Esq., Major of the
regiment to be raised for the expedition to Cape Breton, the sum of sixty pounds,
old tenour bills, or equivalent in other bills, to provide his tent, bedding, table
and other necessaries." "The 24th of April was kept through New England as a
public fast, for the success of the enterprise. On the 19th of June the mourn-
ful tidings arrived that our forces had been defeated in an attack on the Island
Battery, with a loss of 170 men. Major Newton of Colchester was among those
who had fallen victims to disease." The will of Major Israel Newton, "being
about to go against his Majesty's Enemies at Cape Breton," was dated April
1, 1745, and proved August 2, 1745. His children as mentioned in will were:

1G2. i. Anstis 4 , b. Jan. 1, 171G ; m. Jan. 6, 1737, John Johnson, Jr.

103. ii. Mary*, b. March 1, 1719 ; d. July 2, 1794 ; m. April 2, 1738, John Kellogg 5
(son of Lieut. Nathaniel 4 ), b. about 1717; d. Jan. 22, 17G2. Both died in
Colchester, Conn., where they lived. Their children born there were:
1, Judith", 1739; 2, Mercy 5 , 1741; 3, John 6 , 1743; 4, Israel 5 , 1746; 5,
Mary 5 , 1749 ; 6, Hannah", 1751 ; 7, Elisha 5 Kellogg, 1755. See Kellogg
Genealogy for further notice.

164. iii. Hannah 4 , b. June 28, 1721 ; d. Feb. 19, 1764, at Lyme, Conn. ; m. Stephen

Beckwith, b. at Lyme, Aug. 10, 1709; d. at Hartford, Conn., 1788. Their
children were : 1, Cyrus O. 5 Beckicith, b. 1743 ; 2, Jerusha 5 Beckwith, b.
1746.

165. iv. Abigail 4 , b. Oct. 17, 1723 ; m. Tierpont Bacon, founder of Bacon Academy,

Colchester, Conn.

166. tv. Israel 4 , Jr., b. [prob. oldest child] ; m. Jerusha Wells.

167. vi. Miriam 4 , b. about 1730; d. unm., Jan.. 12, 1751, in her 22d year. In the

settlement of her estate her brother Asahel was a minor and had guardians,
James and Israel Newton.
1(18. tvii. Asaiiel 4 , bapt. Oct. 15, 1732; m. [prob. Beebe].



166. ISEAEL NEWTON 4 , JR. (son of Maj. Israel 3 ), born ,

probably the oldest child, as he was the oldest son of Major Israel Newton and
his wife Hannah (Butler) Newton of Colchester, Conn., is mentioned in his
father's will, who bequeaths to him lands, cattle and "my silver hilted sword
and to Asahel my other sword." He married April 18, 1754, Jerusha Wells,
daughter of Lieut. Noah Wells (who was an Ensign with Maj. Israel Newton
at Cape Breton, and who died in 1753). She had ten children, and died April
14, 1816. Israel Newton, Jr., died June 19, 1808. He is probably one of the
name mentioned in the United States Census, 1790. His will, dated June 4,
1808, gives to his wife what is later to go to the daughters Jerusha and Lucy,
and mentions the other children to say they have already had their portions, and
makes son Noah sole executor. He calls himself "of Colchester."

Mr. Edward S. Newton of Milwaukee, Wis., states: "My great-grandfather's
name was Israel Newton. The only record I have of this is a bill of sale of
two negro slaves to 'Israel Newton of Colchester his heirs,' etc., etc., for £150
($750), dated at Hartford, Conn., Nov. 24, 1764. I think I have heard my father
speak of him as grandfather.' " [Perhaps these were the two slaves of Asa New-
ton mentioned in the United States Census, 1790.] This is one of the men,
"Israel Newton, Jr.," mentioned in the First United States Census, 1790, or
the "Jr." may have been his son Israel, who died prior to 1808, but had a family.

All of the men of this name in that census were undoubtedly of this branch of
Newtons. The order of birth of his children as here given is not correct, but
appears to be nearest so, supposing them not to have married under twenty years,
and mindful of their order in the father's will. Children :

married Newton." From some old notes, dated 1808 and 1809,

youngest son of his father, and a minor, when his sister's estate was settled in

April, 1751. He probably died about 1800. He married April 6, 1761,

children are recorded. He was a sailor some part of his life, as were most
