260. FRANCIS NEWTON 5 (Phineas 4 , John 3 , John 2 , Richard 1 ), son of
Phineas and Patience (Howe) Newton of Marlborough and Leicester, Mass.,
was horn at Leicester, March 21, 1731-2, and died April 18, 1781, aged 50.

He married Elizabeth . She was born about 1736, and died April 16,

1820, aged 84.

Erancis Newton and his wife Elizabeth were admitted to the Congregational
Church at Belchertown, Mass., in 1756, and removed from that town in 1761.
In 1770 his name appears in Hadley, Mass., in a "List of Inhabitants of Hadley
in 1770, and the parts of the village and town in which they resided; their polls
and valuations." Erom a valuation made 1770 and sent to Boston: "Francis
Newton. 1 poll, £29. 8. East side of Main street, beginning at the North end."

The History of Hadley gives the names and marriages of five children. In the
First United States Census, 1790, the mother, Elizabeth Newton, in Hadley,
Mass., is given as the head of the family — she was a widow then — and her family
consisted besides, of one male under sixteen years, and one other female.

Francis Newton, a soldier of the Revolution, on a list of men from Col.
Cushing's Regiment, mustered by Thomas Newhall, muster master for Wor-
cester County, to serve at Rhode Island "until the 1st. of Jan. next" (year not
given) in Capt. Newton's Company. [I suppose this to be this Erancis Newton. 5 ]

269. THADDEUS NEWTON 5 (Phineas 4 , John 3 , John 2 , Richard 1 ), son of
Phineas and Patience (Howe) Newton of Leicester, Mass., Windsor, Conn., and
Wilbraham, Mass., was born at Leicester, May 5, 1750, and died May 14, 1830,
at Buckingham, Wayne County, Pa. Burial in "Newton Cemetery" in Buck-
ingham township, Pa.

He married "Thaddeus Newton of Wilbraham Intends marriage with

Sarah Demmon of Windsor Goshan the same is Lawfully published March 16th,
1776. James Warriner, town Clerk," is the record of his marriage intention —
record of marriage not given.

Mr. Newton moved about some during his long lifetime. I have noticed
that those men who had been soldiers were not content to live and die among
their native hills. On July 21, 1779, in a conveyance of land by him and his
brother Paul to their brother Phineas Newton of Wilbraham, he was "of
Becket," Mass. By later deeds, we find him living 1781-2, in Murraysfield;
1784, in Chester; 1787, in Norwich; 1794-5, Montgomery. These towns are in

nine children. One was Amos Hyde*, b. 1742; d. 1795: m. Susanna ; res.. Newton,

and had eight children. One was Benjamin Hyde 5 , b. 1772; d. 1825; m. 1802, Mary
Newton.



BRANCH OF JOHN 83

Hampden and Hampshire counties, Mass. After 1795 lie removed to Wayne

County, Pa., where he spent the remainder of his life. He was engaged in the

manufacture of lumber. This would account for his removals from place to place

and the many purchases of lands — timber lands. The old Newton homestead,

the Newton sawmill, the Newton Cemetery, were in Buckingham, Wayne County,

Pa., "on the banks of the Delaware" is the statement. Thaddeus Newton was

a soldier of the Eevolution. The Massachusetts Archives at the State House in

Boston contain the service rolls of several of his enlistments. Abstracts are here

given. I am always pleased to find a descriptive list. The Newtons are much

alike.

War Service of Thaddeus Newton.

Private, Capt. Enoch Shepard's Co., Col. John Mosley's regiment, enlisted Aug. 17,
1777, discharged Aug. 23, 1777, service seven days. Hampshire County Reg*. Company

His name appears on a Warrant to pay officers and men, on a Roll bearing date
Nov. 9, 1786, of Capt. James Black's Company, Col. David Moseley's Reg*., service on
an Alarm at Northampton.

Much is lacking in the record of his children, and it is to be regretted we have
nothing further of his wife. The oldest child was born at Wilbraham, the others
probably in Hampshire County, Mass.

274. OLIVER NEWTON 5 (Stephen 4 , John 3 , John 2 , Richard 1 ), son of
Stephen and Mary (Witt) Newton of Windsor, Conn., and Belchertown, Mass.,
was born at Windsor, Conn., April 2, 1742.

He married (1) Rebecca , born about 1736. In 1764, she was admitted

to membership in the Congregational Church at Belchertown (the 109th member),
and died at Belchertown — "First wife of Oliver Newton," C. R., January — ,
1771, aged 35.

He married (2) May — , 1771, Widow Elizabeth Marsh, who was born about
1742, and who died in New Braintree, Mass. — "Betsey, wife of Oliver, May 15,
1823, aged 81" — is the record. From the use of the word "wife" instead of
"widow," it would seem that her husband was living in 1823.

Oliver Newton was a soldier of the Revolution. Abstract of service :

Ware joins Belehertown- on the southeast. It would appear that Mr. Newton
settled in Ware, and his church affiliation was with Belehertown. The First
United States Census, 1790, found him in Ware, Hampshire County, head of a
family, the other members of which were, one male under sixteen years, and five
females.

I can give here but one child by each wife.

277. GEESHOM NEWTON, JR. 5 (Gershonr*, Samuel 3 , John-, Richard 1 ),
son of Gershom and Elizabeth (Angier) Newton of Marlborough, Mass., was
born there April 24, 1715, and died February 27, 1800.

He married at Marlborough, September 25, 1744, Jerusha Bruce, daughter of
Samuel and Elizabeth (Townsend?) Bruce* of Marlborough, where she was
born October 20, 1721.

Gershom Newton, Jr., and his brother Timothy were soldiers in the French
and Indian War in 1748, and Gershom again in 1756. He was in the Crown
Point expedition, in Capt. Ebenezer Newell's, Roxbury, Company, March 27,
1755, till December 17, 1755.

He was taxed in Framingham, 1757. Perhaps he lived there for a time, as
also in Southborough ; but the record of his children is in Marlborough.

In the First United States Census, 1790, a Gershom Newton is credited to
Lanesborough, Berkshire County, Mass., head of a family, i. e., one male and
one female. Another Gershom Newton at Marlborough, Middlesex County,
Mass., head of a family, which, with himself, consisted of four males above
sixteen years of age, and one female. This last was Gershom, Jr. 5 I have not
found the other.

of Gershom and Elizabeth (Angier) Newton of Marlborough, Mass., was born
there May 4, 1723. The First United States Census, 1790, Timothy Newton
was head of a family in Northborough, Mass., which consisted of himself and
two females; who was probably this Timothy 5 — but may have been his son,
Timothy . There is no probate record of the estate of Timothy Newton 3 in
Massachusetts and I find no record of his death.

BRANCH OF JOHN 85

The town records of Marlborough state that he was a soldier in the French
and Indian wars of 1748 and 1756, together with his brother Gershom, Jr.

He resided in Marlborough-Southborough, where his children were born. The
record is quite clear as to the parents and birth dates of the four children — the
mother of each not at all uncertain.

Timothy Newton 5 was probably married when he served his first term as a
soldier — as long before as 1746 ; I do not find the record of this marriage. His
wife was Hannah , and their son Timothy's birth is recorded in South-
borough. There may have been other children, not recorded, between the dates
of this and his second marriage — at least sixteen years.

Timothy Newton 5 married (2) at Marlborough, Mass., March 22, 1760, Sarah
Morse, who was the mother of three children born there. She was probably
living in 1790 with him in Northborough, and was one of the "two females"
recorded in the United States Census. I have not been able to trace her
parentage. Why Lydia Morse (dau. of Samuel and Lydia (Newton) Morse)
should be given as this wife and mother, in the Morse Genealogy, I do not know.

293. JASON NEWTON 5 (Gershom*, Samuel 3 , John 2 , Richard 1 ), son of
Gershom and Elizabeth (Angier) Newton of Marlborough, Mass., was born there
February 2, 1736.

He married at Mendon, Mass., "by Rev. Erost, January 9, 1757, Hannah
Warren of Mendon," perhaps daughter of Samuel and Hannah (Beard)
Warren. Marriage also recorded in Framingham. Her descendants state that
her son Jason received a United States pension, which after his death in 1842
was transferred to her. She would have been of great age at that date.

Jason Newton, then of Framingham, Mass., was in the French and Indian
War. His name appears on the roll in Capt. Henry Eames' Company, April
26, 1757.

Jason Newton, wife Hannah and child, Abigail, from Framingham were
"warned out" of Mendon, February 19, 1759. He probably settled in Mendon
about this time. One child at least, and perhaps others, was born there.

Before 1775 he had removed to Lanesborough, Berkshire County, Mass. The
following entry in the Index to the Revolutionary War Archives is probably
his service in that war:

Jason Newton. Lanesborough. Private Capt. Asa Barnes Co., Col. Patterson Regi-
ment of Minute-men, marched April 19, 1775, entered service April 22, 1775, served one
month. Reported returned home.

Jason Newton. Private Capt. David Wheeler's Co. Service six days. Company
marched from Lanesboro' to Meloomseuyck. Aug. 14, 1777 on Alarm. Jason Newton.
Private Capt. Asa Barnes' Co. Service 15 days. Company marched to Manchester (50
miles) July 13, 1777.

Jason Newton is recorded in the First United States Census, 1790, as being
head of a family in New Ashford, Berkshire County, Mass., the other members
of which were one male under sixteen years, and three females.

Census was taken in 1790, his family consisting of besides himself, one
male above 16 years, one male under 16 years and two females. His rela-

He married in Sutton, Mass., October 26, 1769, "both of Worcester," Elizabeth
Woodward. The marriage is also recorded in Worcester. There are Woodwards
in both of those towns, whose daughter she may have been. (See 2084, 2124,
4257.)

Levi Newton and wife "Betsey" had one son born in Sutton. There were
probably other children.

In the first United States Census, 1790, the family of Levi Newton at Sutton
consisted of himself, two males under sixteen years, and three females.

and his will was filed May 19, 1774.

He married at Southborough, March 11, 1761, Mary Bellows, daughter of
John Bellows, Jr. [see White Family Quarterly, Vol. L p. 74.]

Joshua Newton, Jr., was a soldier in the French and Indian War. His name
appears on the roll of Capt. John Buck's Company, mustered March 2, 1757,
fifty-five men. They were then at Northfield, Mass.

In Joseph Holt's journal of the march of Capt. Ebenezer Jones's Company
in the expedition to Canada, under date of July 20, 1758, a contact was had
with the enemy, when many officers and men were killed, whom he mentions
by name, and the name of Joshua Newton of South Berwick, missing. South
Berwick is in Maine. If this was Joshua, Jr. 5 , he was not killed; for he
appeared soon after to be married.

He lived in Southborough, where his children were born.
