546. WILLIAM WALLACE NEWTON 6 (John 5 , Obediah 4 , Thomas 3 , John 2 ,
Richard 1 ), son of John and Sarah (Wallace) Newton of Worcester, Mass., was
born there October 11, 1768, according to the town record; 1769, private record.
He died April 28, 1814, "at Preston, N. Y.," is one statement; another is that
"he died somewhere in Pennsylvania, on his way home after going down river
with a raft of lumber. He was buried where he died; but there is a stone in the
North Afton Cemetery, N. Y., telling when."

Too little is positively certain about William W. Newton, his itinerary and his
life. His posterity know nothing of him prior to his coming to New York State,
except that "he came from the east" and settled in Bainbridge, Chenango
County, N. Y., where he was a farmer. They have an idea that the oldest of
his twelve children was born somewhere in Connecticut, and the others before
he came to New York.

He married, about 1790, Lydia Wells, of whose birth and marriage as little
is known by her descendants, although she was living in 1852. She was born in
1774, and was the mother of his twelve children. After his death she married
(2), "we think in Preston, N. Y.," (Chenango County) a Mr. Stafford, who
probably died there. He died and she went to live with her son, Thomas New-
ton, in Bainbridge, N. Y., where she spent the remainder of her life.

The Eirst United States Census, 1790, shows a William Newton and wife
heads of a family at Sutton, Mass., — no other members in it — who might have
been this man. There was no other of the name who so nearly conforms with
his then conditions — i. e. a very young couple, just married. A record of his
children has been preserved in the family. It gives me pleasure to place it
here.
