BRANCH OF JOHN ; ;,

He married in Shrewsbury, Mass., March 29, 1727, Anna Wilson of Lancaster.

Thomas Newton, at marriage, was called of Shrewsbury. His wife was
admitted to the church there in 1742. He lived in the north parish, near to
Lancaster. Six children are recorded in Shrewsbury ; four of them were baptized
in Grafton church.

Thomas Newton was in Sunderland 1742, and in Deerfield 1756. His estate
was not settled by Probate Court of Middlesex or Worcester counties, Mass.

241. OBEDIAH NEWTON (Thomas 3 , John 2 , Richard 1 ), son of Thomaa
and Eecord (Ward) Newton of Marlborough and Shrewsbury, Mass., was born
at Marlborough, January 6, 1702, and died in Grafton", Mass., May 11, 1753,
aged 51. G. S. there, in the old cemetery. His estate was administered without
a will, in Grafton, in 1753. Case in Probate, No. 43,348.

He married about 1724 or 25, Abigail .

The township of Shrewsbury was incorporated December 15, 1727, ten
years after it was granted as a township. The town was settled mostly by
people from Marlborough, Mass. At the first town meeting after that date
Shrewsbury included what is now Boylston, most of West Boylston, a small
part of Sterling, Westborough and Grafton. In 1741, Obediah Newton, who
had settled in the town, together with three other families and their farms,
were set off and annexed to Grafton. Thus we find a record of the births of
his children in the towns of Shrewsbury, Westborough and Grafton, and
baptisms of some of them in Grafton.

The death of his wife, Abigail, does not appear, and he may have had a
second wife, Ruth — ; for in the baptism records at Grafton some of the chil-
dren are credited to "Obediah and Ruth," namely: John, Jonas, and the first
Thadeus. There is an error somewhere.

243. ABNER NEWTON 4 (Thomas 3 , John 2 , Richard 1 ), son of Thomas and
Record (Ward) Newton of Marlborough, Mass., was born there March 21, 1708,
and died there July 30, 1750.

He married in Westborough, Mass., March 29, 1731, C. R., Vashti Eager,
daughter of James and Tabitha (How) Eager* of Marlborough, where she was
born January 14, 1713. She married (2) in Hopkinton, Mass., April 10, 1753,
Benjamin Wood.

Abner Newton lived in Westborough, Mass. His children were born there.
He seems to have taken an active part in the affairs of the town ; is so mentioned
as early as February 5, 1729. He was the town treasurer for the years 1739,
1746, 1747. In 1748 he was one of the building committee to build a new church.
On February 6, 1753, the town voted to sell no "pew-spots" to non-residents ;
"Widdo Vashti Newton" had "inhind seat on right hand, next to woman's
door," showing she lived there at that date. She married (2) the following
April.

The estate of Abner Newton was settled in Westborough, in 1750, without
a will. Case No. 43,025 in Probate Court.

Newton was in Northfield in 1767, and in Deerfield in 1768. I suppose
he was the Revolutionary soldier mentioned on the rolls as :

Abner Newton. Private, Capt. Noah Lankton's Company, Col. John

BRANCH OF JOHN 77

FTFTH GENERATION AND CHILDREN

253. AZARIAH NEWTON 5 (John 4 , John 3 , John 2 , Richard 1 ), son of John
and Hannah (Parkhurst) Newton of Southborough, Mass., was born at Marl-
borough, Mass., February 5, 1720, and died at Milford, Mass., November 1,

1794, aged 75.

He married at Milford, by Rev. Amaziah Frost, who certified to the marriage
February 20, 1746, Sarah Jones, daughter of Deacon Nathaniel and Priscilla
(Corbet) Jones. She died July 17, 1808, probably at Milford, where she was
living in 1794 to enjoy the use of one-half the estate of her late husband.

Mr. Newton was a farmer in Milford. He and his wife were received into
the Congregational Church at Milford, April 5, 1747— the year after their
marriage. They apparently continued to reside at Milford for the remainder
of their lives, yet the First United States Census, 1790, does not mention a
Newton in that town, while both Amaziah and his son Ichabod were both living
there, heads of families at that date.

The following abstract of the will of Azariah Newton mentions three children.
I have not the records of the town of Milford, which probably contain fuller
mention. Milford was incorporated as a town in 1780 — it was formerly a part
of Mendon. Perhaps Mendon may contain the births of these children.

Azariah Newton was surety, with Samuel Jones, on the bond (£600) of the
widow of his son Ichabod, 1778.

Probably Samuel Jones was a near relative of the wife of Azariah Newton.

254. JOHN NEWTON 5 (John 4 , John 3 , John 2 , Richard 1 ), son of John and
Hannah (Parkhurst) Newton of Marlborough-Southborough, Mass., was born
at Marlborough, October 5, 1722, and died at Southbridge, Mass., April 9, 1820,
aged 98 years 6 months. Burial and monument at Oak Ridge Cemetery,
Southbridge.

He married at Newton, Mass., December 14, 1752 (also recorded at Fram-
ingham, Mass.), Abigail Eames.



7g NEWTON GENEALOGY

She died at Southborough, February 14, 1805, aged 78. C. K. (or February

19, 1805, in her 76th year. Fam. Bible.) Four children.

He married (2) April 14, 1808, at Southborough, Mrs. Sarah Johnson, who
died there October — , 1811, aged about 65. C. E.

Mr. Newton continued to reside in Southborough until after the death of his
second wife, when he went to live with his daughter, Mrs. Ames, in Southbridge,
where he died.

The name of this John Newton appears on the rolls of the men from Marl-
borough, soldiers in the French and Indian wars for the years 1758 and 1759 —
service in the reduction of Canada. As a soldier of the Revolution, the Revolu-
tionary Rolls contain his name in the following service:

John Newton — Private in Capt. Moses Harrington's Company, Col. Dike's regiment,
muster for December 20, 1776, to Feb. 1777, credited to Southborough, enlisted December

20, 1776, and served till March 1, 1777.

The first United States Census, 1790, finds John. Newton head of a family in
Southborough, which consists of himself and one female.

His estate was administered at Southbridge, without a will, in 1820. The case
in Probate Court, No. 43,240.

The following is a copy from an old Bible, printed in 1730. The writing,
I am told, "is so poor and so many blots and the spelling so bad," that it is
difficult to read. The old fashioned way of forming the letters and the reckless
spelling of the olden times always is difficult to read. The inscription is :

"This being a gift given to John Newtown from his honored father, John Newtown, to
remember him by: And as it is the word of God, I with the same [spirit? (faded) 1 from
my heart, that the blessing of God may accompany the same to him and also to his
posterity throughout this evil and troublesome world; and that he may be [agreed?
(faded)] in trying for Imortal Glory in the end; which is the hearty prayer and wishes
of the giver, John Newtown.

Licister, May, the first day, 1746"

The giver is John Newton 4 to his son John 5 . The Bible is the treasured
property of his descendant, Mr. Newton E. Putney of Southbridge (No. 400).

and who died (by whom she had a daughter, Elizabeth, born in Hop-

Earned of Oxford, Mass., where she was born November 29, 1736. She died in
Southborough, March 9, 1814.

This Amos Newton, Jr., and his wife, Jane, seem to have lived their married
life in Southborough. Their children were born there. In 1790, at the date
of the First United States Census, he was the head of a family in Southborough,
which consisted of, besides himself, one male under sixteen years, and two
females.

Erom the will, the inference is that he had no children except those by wife
Jane.
