288. DANIEL BRYANT NEWTON 6 (son of Dudley 5 , Asahel 4 , Maj. Israel 3 ),
born January 14, 1812, in Avon, Livingston County, N. Y., and died September 4,
1897, at Ypsilanti, Mich. He married, May 22, 1835, Lucy W. Spencer, a native
of New England, with an English ancestry, but then a school teacher, of York,
N. Y. She was born September 1, 1813, and died May 9, 1887. Mr. Newton
was a farmer. In the autumn of 1845, he moved with his family of wife and
four children to Michigan, and settled first on a farm he had purchased in the
township of Superior, where he remained until 1870, when he exchanged the
place for city property in Ypsilanti, Mich., and moved to it, for the remainder
of his life. Mr. Newton was a man of great faith in God. He first joined the
Baptist Church, and later the Methodist societies in the towns where he lived.
He had a superior musical talent and gave much time and study during his early
manhood to music, taking courses in voice culture at Boston, Mass., and Roches-

292. EEV. ALONZO NEWTON 6 (son of Dudley 5 , Asahel 4 , Maj. Israel 3 ), born
April 3, 1822, in the town of York, near Fowlerville. N. Y. ; died at Naperville,
111., October 7, 1891; married at Boston Corners, N. Y., Mary A. Hemenway,
daughter of Hiram and Aurelia (Cary) Hemenway of Utica, N. Y., and Free-
port, 111. She was born at Boston, Erie County, N. Y., August 13, 1833, and
died .

Mr. Newton went to the public schools and later taught in them. In the spring
of 1843 he was converted and felt called to preach. In 1844 he entered Lima
College, where he continued his studies for several years, during which time he
was licensed to preach by the Methodist Episcopal Church, and later was an
ordained clergyman of that church. He held pastorates and lived in the follow-
ing towns: 1851, Boston Corners; 1852, Collins; 1853, Clarence; 1855, Gowanda;
1856, Williamsville; 1857, Lancaster; 1858, Covington; 1859, Ashbury and
Fowlerville; 1861, Smethport, Pa.; 1863, Machias; 1865, Marilla and Elma;
all except the one in New York State, as I understand. In the autumn of 1865
he removed with his family to Illinois, and held the following charges : Council
Hill, Foreston, Lanark, Cherry Valley, Belvidere, Marengo, Woodstock, Palatine,
Kingston, Creston, W 7 yanet, Freedom, Mokena, Durand, Downers Grove, Naper-
ville. His children were:

at Naperville, 111. Mr. Newton compiled, and in 1911 published, an exceed-
ingly interesting history of "The Colchester, Conn., Newton Family.
Descendants of Thomas Newton of Fairfield. Conn.. 1639," and their
settlement in New York State as contained in old family letters and many
other documents. It was a reverent thing to do, and is well done. His
family will ever be grateful that they have so intimate a knowledge of their
forebears. We all regret that we know so little of the daily life of our
ancestors, that we may come near unto them. I have been permitted to
take from this compilation the vital parts which I lacked to make a com-
plete whole in the many fragmentary statistics I had gathered of the
posterity of Thomas Newton of Fairfield, and I bere make acknowledg-
ment, and thanks for the courtesy. Mr. Newton's children are :

351. 1. Violet Clarie*. b. Nov. 17. 1897.

352. 2. Glad us Man*, b. May 19, 1900.

Mr. Newton was educated in the public schools and Lima Seminary, near his
home in New York State. He lived with his father mainly till his 29th year
when he married. He was converted in 1843 and felt called to preach. He
entered the Genesee Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church in 1854, and
was ordained Elder in 1858, by Bishops Baker and Janes; was twelve years in
that Conference. In 1866 he moved to Michigan, where he remained the rest of
his life. He held pastorates at Weathersfield, Belfast, Collins Center, Honeoye,
Sardinia, Java, Wales, Holland, Marilla and Eagle, in New York; Dixborough,
Lima, Unadilla, Brooklyn, Franklin, Milan, New Boston, Sheldon, Freel, Sheboy-
gan, Iaseo, Southfield in Michigan ; after which he was superannuated and went
to farming. His children [three by the first wife, the last two by the last wife,
I think] are:

356. i. Carrie E. 7 , b. Oct. 24, 1855 ; m. Omar A. Backus, reside in Stockbridge, Mich.,

and has four children. He moved with his parents from New York to
Michigan in 1S6G. In 1872 he entered the State Normal School at Ypsilanti,
Mich., taking the classical course, and was graduated June, 1877, and
immediately began work as a teacher of public schools in northern Michi-
gan. In October, 1885, he entered the law school of the University of
Michigan, Ann Arbor, Mich., took the degree of LL.B. in June, 1887, and
was admitted to the Michigan bar. Upon leaving the University he settled
permanently in "Detroit, Mich., in active practice of the law, where he has
continued until the present time (1911). His children are:

295. AURORA DUDLEY NEWTON G (Dudley 5 , Asahel 4 , Maj. Israel 3 ), born
March 12, 1828, in the town of York, Livingston County, N. Y., on the farm
where in 1908 he had lived the eighty years of his life, when he was in perfect
health of mind and body. He married (1) October 7, 1851, Elizabeth Fraser of
York, N. Y., who died August 31, 1853, leaving a son. He married (2) March
17, 1864, Henrietta Clark of Caledonia, N. Y., who died September 22, 1868,
leaving a daughter.

Mr. Newton was educated in the public schools of his district, and at the age
of 18 taught in the town of Caledonia. It seemed to him a duty to remain on
his father's farm, and he purchased his brother's interest in it and it became
his permanent home. A Republican in politics, he was elected to various town
offices : Assessor, 1866-1870 ; Commissioner of Highways, 1870-1879 ; Supervisor,
1881-1887; Chairman of the Board of Supervisors of Livingston County two

years, and member of it five years. His townsmen wished to send him to the
State Legislature, but he refused the honor. At the age of 15 years he united
with the Methodist Episcopal Church and had held all of the offices therein as
layman, and in 1899 was Recording Steward of the Fowlerville charge, Genesee
Conference. He was a grand old man, who made a success of his life by being
ready and willing to do whatever came next to hand. His children are:

374. i. Walton Aurora 7 , b. July 19, 1853 ; m. Dec. 3, 1879, Delia Gillette of Lansing,

Mich. At the age of 14 years he entered the mercantile department of
B. F. Dow & Co., merchants and manufacturers of engines, threshing
machines, agricultural implements, etc., at Fowlerville, Mich., learning the
business and later becoming manager of the business, and traveling for it
all through the West. In 1879 he located in Lansing, Mich., and entered
the business for himself. Since 1SS3 he has confined his business relations
almost wholly to Lansing and its tributaries. Republican; Methodist
Church ; and right dealing represents what he stands for.

375. ii. Stella Henrietta 7 , b. , 18G- ; m. March 17, 1897, George McKnight.

They were living in 1911 in Caledonia, N. Y. No children.



376. ASAHEL NEWTON 5 (descendant of Thomas 1 of Fairfield), born
June 1, 1758, at Colchester, Conn. ; died May 30, 1834. His great-grandson, Mr.
Jervis O. Newton, writes: "The earliest history which we have been able to
obtain concerning the Newton family is, that they took a prominent part in the
settlement of Colchester, Conn., in the early part of the eighteenth century. It
is said they were descended from Thomas Newton, at one time of Fairfield, Conn.
Asahel Newton is the first of whom we have any authentic record." He was a
soldier of the Revolution. The "Connecticut Men in the War of the Revolu-
tion" 1880, pg. 176, contains the name of Asahel Newton, in the Company of
Capt. Eells, enlisted May 5, 1777, term three years, discharged May 5, 1780. The
family history of his service, more in detail, states that he was at the storming
of Stony Point by "Mad Anthony Wayne"; one of the picked men who led the
way. Also, he was one of Washington's body guards and was present at the
surrender of Comwallis at Yorktown. He married February 19, 1784, Versalle
Booth. I suppose they lived in Colchester. They had ten children ; the fifth was :

377. v. Erastus 6 , b. Feb. 22, 1795, at Colchester, Conn. About 1810 he went

to Sherburne, N. Y., and there m. on March 28, 1820, Julia Hatch. They
had four children. He d. March 25, 1867. His second child was :

378. 2. Lyman Marshall 7 , b. Nov. 10, 1822; d. Oct. 14, 1894. He m. April 18,

1844, Elizabeth Gooding, who d. Nov. 1, 1855. They had two children
who are now (1906) dead. He m. (2) Oct. 7, 1856, Frances M. Jones
of Rochester, N. Y., who was living in 1906. They had four children,
one of whom d. before 1906, the three others being :

379. 1. Frances E. 8 , b. ; resides in Chicago, 111.

380. 2. Jervis O. 8 , b. ; is m. and wife living (1906) ; is cashier of the

State Bank of Chicago, 111., corner of LaSalle and Washington Sts.

382. ISRAEL NEWTON 1 (probably descendant of Thomas of Fairfield) was

born , 1788; died , 1864. He came from Voluntown, Conn.,

to West Greenwich, R. I., where he and his wife are buried. He married
Nancy Saunders, before the removal. [There were living in Voluntown, Conn.,
in 1790, only four heads of families, one of whom was probably his father or
mother, namely : Desire, Isaac, Jabez or Matthew.] He may have had more than
the one son here given : viz. :

395. CHRISTOPHER NEWTON ( ), born February 26, 1738, at

Groton, New London County, Conn. ; died at Newport, N. H, February 19, 1834.
I bave made no effort to trace eitber Cbristopber Newton or his cousin Isaac of
Newport, N. H., because they seemed so surely to spring from the original
Connecticut Newtons. It should not be difficult for those most interested to
trace them, having the few facts I am able to give here. Being born in Groton,
Conn., the town records should show the names of his parents, and at that early
day there could have been hardly more than three generations in America behind
him. Very probably the first of them was Thomas Newton 1 "of Fairfield," whose
posterity was quite numerous in Colchester, and New London County, Conn.,
generally. The name, Christopher, I have not found earlier than this one. In
1790, the First United States Census shows this Christopher Newton at New-
port, N. H., — family, "1-2-5," another at Woodbridge, New Haven County,
Conn., — family, "1-3-3," another in New London County, Conn., the county he
came from, — family, "1-0-1."

He removed with his family of wife and five children in 1779, from Groton,
New London County, Conn., to Newport, N. H. Another son, Hubbard, was
born at Newport, N H. He became one of the early settlers of that town. He
took up land on the "Unity Road," where he established a homestead-farm —
which afterward came into possession of his son Erastus — and where he died.
He was moderator of the town meetings for nine years, and one of the select-
men two terms.

He married in Connecticut, February 26, 1766, Mary Giles, daughter of Hon.
Benjamin Giles of Groton, Conn., where she was born November 12, 1745, and
died at Newport, N. H, May 14, 1821. Their children were :

396. i. Martha, b. April 9, 1768; m. at Hebron, Conn., Dec. 20, 1785, Aaron Mack,
who was b. Jan. 11, 1761. Their one child I know of was
1. Polly Mack, b. Nov. 23, 1786.

old. Six children.

Mr. Newton had the homestead of his father, where he lived. The farm is
on the "Unity Road" — Unity being a town south of Newport. He was Major
in the militia. He gave three of his sous college educations and they became
