283. EBER NEWTON 6 (eldest son of Dudley 5 , Asahel 4 , Maj. Israel 3 ), born
August 24, 1799, "in Genesee County, N. Y.," writes his son; at Avon, Living-
ston County, is another statement, by his sister. He died in the town of Russia,
Lorain County, Ohio, September 12, 1882, aged 83 years, 19 days. He married
at York, N. Y., Sylvia Webber, daughter of Horace and Mehitabel (Miller)
Webber, both natives of Massachusetts, and then residing in York, N. Y., where
she was born. She died about 1830, leaving five children. He m. (2) about
1832, near New London, Ohio, Mrs. Annie (Post) Higgins, widow of Lewis

She was born in Genesee County, N. Y, September 15, 1804, and died in Ohio,
September 14, 1870, aged 66. She had four children by this marriage.

Mr. Newton lived near Fowlerville, N. Y., and soon after marriage moved to
Ohio, in 1824, and settled in Russia township, Lorain County, where he was a
farmer, and lived the rest of his life. It is stated that he and one of his sons
were very tall — which is not an unusual Newton characteristic, since many of
every branch have measured above six feet in height. His children were :
