he writes : "I was captured in that disgraceful surrender at Harper's

to guard prisoners ; w 7 here it remained until April 1, 1863, when it was

Centennial Celebration in Newfane, I find the name of Miss Fanny Newton
on the committee of arrangements. "Cousin Mary is quite a literary
woman. Just now is, and for some time has been correspondent to the
Brattleboro, Vermont, Phenix. They live in the house their father built
when the present Newfane was Fayetteville. Newfane was on the top of
the hill — three miles straight up. There is little left of the old, busy,
little village on the hill except the little marble stones with numbers on
them, and where the Court-house stood is a larger marble on which is the
key to the numbers. One stone marks the site of Luke Knowlton's
house (he was brother-in-law of Col. Ephraim Holland, who married
Eunice Newton') ; another the site of the church; and so on. I am
proud to say that it was the nice thought of Cousin Mary Newton to
mark these sites, as most ofr the buildings were taken bodily down the
hill to the valley of Fayetteville and the others were entirely destroyed."

863. JOHN NEWTON 7 (William W., 8 John 5 , Obediah*, Thomas 3 , John 2 ,
Richard 1 ), son of William Wallace and Lydia (Wells) Newton of Worcester,
Mass., and Bainbridge, N. Y., was born March 3, 1791, and died at Bainbridge,
Chenango County, N. Y, January 30, 1866.

He married in Connecticut, October 4, 1810, Abiah Miller, whose parents
moved from Connecticut to Ohio. She was born February 2, 1789, and died
February 8, 1875, at Collinsville, Hartford County, Conn. She had nine children.

Mr, Newton lived, a few years before his marriage, and after, in Siinsbury,
1809, and Granby, 1812, Hartford County, Conn. About 1813 he removed to
Bainbridge, Chenango County, N. Y., where he settled and lived the remainder
of his life. The first two children were born in Connecticut, the others in Bain-
bridge.

The following sketch, written by his granddaughter in a letter to me, is both
interesting and tells much of genealogical value; and should be preserved here.
She writes : "We know very little except of Grandfather, Capt. John Newton,
as he was always called. The first we know of his early life— after he finished
school — he went into a clergyman's family for the winter to finish his studies,
taking mathematics, bookkeeping, English composition, vocal and instrumental
music. Flute and claronette, specialties. For years afterward he was a vocal

teacher and very proficient in that branch. Later he went to Connecticut, where
he married and remained until their oldest child (my mother) was 3 years of
age, when they returned to Bainbridge and resided until the close of his life.
He was one of the leading business men of the town. The same is true of his
membership in the Episcopal church. He owned large tracts of land which he
cultivated; had a saw-mill and carried on a large business in lumbering; had a
flour-mill, which he operated. He was not a mechanic or a carpenter, but he cer-
tainly was a builder, for there are now [1913] six houses standing of his build-
ing — had built. Yet all through his active, busy years, he kept up his music,
being chorister in his church until nearly seventy years of age — repeatedly resign-
ing and as often recalled. His eldest daughter, my mother, when sixteen years
of age was sent away to learn instrumental music. He had an organ built
expressly for her. She was the first organist in the town, and played the first
church organ in the town; her father being chorister. When my mother mar-
ried her next sister took her place, and when she married and removed to
Green, her next sister took the place — and so on until four daughters had offici-
ated for a time. By that time my eldest sister, Amy Pearsall, who inherited
her mother's and grandfather's musical talent, was installed organist, and after
her, my sister Emily, until her leaving for Salt Lake, as a Missionary under
Bishop Tuttle — grandfather being chorister the while, resigning, and being
recalled on account of his superior talent.

"My grandfather was Captain of the Military Company of the Town. At
Military drills every year, it was my pride to see him in his three-cornered hat,
epaulets and sword, mounted on his gay horse, giving orders to his men ; while we
little urchins hung over the gate eating gingerbread and molasses candy. They
were great days, those general training days.

"My grandfather's brothers were all prosperous agriculturists."
