Obediah and Abigail ( ) Newton of Shrewsbury and Grafton, Mass., was

born in Shrewsbury, February 5, 1726, and died, probably, in Croydon, N. H.

BRANCH OF JOHN 03

325. JONAS NEWTON 5 (Obediah 4 , Thomas", John 2 , Kichard 1 ), son of

Obediah and Abigail ( ) Newton of Shrewsbury, Mass., was born there,

August 5, 1737, and died (perhaps the John Newton who died at Millbury,

January 20, 1824).

He married at Shrewsbury, May 19, 1759, Abigail Parker, daughter Stephen,

Jr., and Abigail ( ) Parker* of Roxbury and Shrewsbury, Mass., born in

Shrewsbury, April 20, 1740, and died .

Jonas Newton, at marriage, was of Worcester. The birth of his children do
not occur on the town records; but are recorded on records of the First Church
of Worcester.

CHILDREN.

Jonas , b. Aug. 2, 1760; prob. died young.

Abigail 6 , b. March 14, 1762 ; m. in Worcester, Mass., Aug. 22, 1798, William

Olds of Whitestone. Queens Co., N. Y.
Jonas', b. Feb. 3, 1764.
Thomas 6 , b. Dec. 15, 1765.
William Kenedy 6 , b. Feb. 21, 1768.
Nehemiaii , b. Jan. 21, 1770.
Molly", b. Nov. 17, 1771 ; perhaps ni. Sept. 8, 1800, in Southborough, David

Damon of Ashby.



326. JOHN NEWTON 5 (Obediah 4 , Thomas 3 , John 2 , Richard 1 ), son of

Obediah and Abigail ( ) Newton of Shrewsbury and Grafton, Mass., was

born at Shrewsbury, July 11, 1739, baptized in the church at Grafton, July 15,
1739, and died .

He married about 1761, Sarah Wallace, daughter of William and Eleanor
( ) Wallace^ of Worcester, Mass., where she was born May 16, 1744.

On April 6, 1762, John Newton and wife from Marlborough were warned
from Worcester— "now at the house of David Cunningham." Warrant returned
May 10, 1762. It would seem that John Newton and his wife Sarah had come
to Worcester with a view of settling there — her native town, and were stopping
for a time with her sister, the wife of David Cunningham. It was the custom
to "warn-out" every stranger from the town.

Mr. Newton soon became a citizen of Worcester and his seven children were
born there. No deaths in this family on record in Worcester. Where they moved
to does not appear. No settlement of his estate there.

CHILDREN.

543. i. Elizabeth 6 , b. Aug. 3, 1762. This may have been the Elizabeth Wood New-

ton who married Moses Hunting of Hubbardston. I have no proof of it.
The suggestion seems more than possible.

544. ii. Eleanor 6 , b. April 10, 1764.

545. iii. Thomas", b. Nov. 17, 1766.

546. tiv. William Wallace 6 , b. Oct. 11, 1768: m. Lydia Wells.

549. vii. Joshua", b. Nov. 21, 1774.

* Stefhe.v Parker, said to have come from Roxbury to Shrewsbury. Mass.. and called

"Jun." on the records, wife Abigail , was admitted to the church in Shrewsbury in

1741 and his wife in 1740. No record of death in Shrewsbury. Their children were :
