1 §0 NEWTON GENEALOGY

97. DEACON JOSIAH NEWTON 3 (Moses 2 , Richard 1 ), son of Moses and
Johanna (Larkin) Newton of Marlborough, Mass., was born there November
19, 1688, and died in Westborough, Mass., February 9, 1755.

He married in Marlborough , 1716, C. R. 1, Elizabeth Woods.

The will of Deacon Joseph Newton 2 , dated April 18, 1726, has the following:
"Item. I give Elizabeth Newton the wife of Joseph Newton one pewter Plater
only having already advanced her portion for [a gift, crossed out] her service
Done to me before her marriage. Also she is to have all the Books having her
name written in them." It seems to me this Elizabeth Woods may have been
a near relative of the wife of Deacon Joseph Newton 2 , Katherine Woods, and
lived with them before marriage as one of the family. The daughters of Deacon
Joseph are so designated in the will.

Deacon Josiah Newton 3 married (2) in Westborough, Mass., December 8, 1730,

C. E., Rubamah Maynard, daughter of David and Hannah ( ) Maynard""'

of Marlborough, where she was born December 20, 1706. She died .

In 1737 Deacon Josiah Newton bought for £377 "six-tenths of one whole share
that is already lotted out, or to be lotted out; there being twelve shares or whole
proprietors" in Lambstown, now Hardwick; out of which property he gave
farms to his sons Silas 4 and Timothy 4 .

He died February 9, 1755, aged about 67, in Westborough, leaving what was
then a large estate, valued at £1,282. 4s. 7d. His widow, Ruhamah, survived him.

In the division of Deacon Newton's estate in 1755 a share was assigned to
Elizabeth, wife of Silas Warren, apparently the eldest daughter, and a share to
his daughter Mary, wife of Asa Brigham.

Deacon Josiah Newton 3 was a tanner.

His children were born in Westborough, six by first wife and ten by second
wife. Their names are also recorded in Hardwick. When and where the two
wives died does not appear.

Deacon Newton seems always to be identified with Westborough. I doubt
if he ever lived in Hardwick — though he bought land there. His will was exe-

Cor Brigham pedigree see note to Edward Newton 3 .

I cannot find the parentage of Elizabeth Woods or of Katherine Woods. I have thought
sometimes that Katherine Woods, wife of Joseph Newton 2 , may have been a widow Woods,
and Elizabeth, her daughter, was the reason he gave to her in his will the same as though
she were one of die family, and had been since her schoolbook days. See the will of Joseph
Newton 2 . This is merely a suggestion. I have no proof at all.

cuted, and the administration of his estate, at Westborough, 1755. Case in Pro-
bate, No. 43,261.

Deacon Josiah Newton 3 lived in Westborough, Mass., where for many years
he was a prominent citizen. His land and that of Thomas Newton 3 , son of
John 2 (Richard 1 ), were set off from Marlborough, and they both took active
part in church and town affairs.

On the 18th of November, 1717, the westerly part of the territory of Maid-
borough, then known as Chauncy, was incorporated with other lands, and received
the name of Westborough. Subsequent additions were made to this tract from
Sutton in 1728, from Shrewsbury in 1762 and 1793, and from Upton in 1763.
In 1766 the Second Precinct of Westborough was made the District of North-
borough, and in 1775 this was set off as a separate town.

Westborough was incorporated November 18, 1717; the church organized
October 28, 1724. Northborough was incorporated October 20, 1744; the church
organized May 21, 1746. Southborough was incorporated July 6, 1727; the
church organized October 24, 1730.

At the time of the incorporation of Westborough, there were in the town
twenty-six families and six young men. A month after the incorporation, on
January 15, 1718, it was voted to build a meeting house, Thomas Newton 3 being
one of the building committee. He was chosen to be one of the selectmen 1718,
'19, '22, '25, '29. Josiah 3 was chosen selectman 1723, '39-'41, '43-'47, '49, '52-'54,
and his son Barnabas 4 , 1778-'81. Later their descendants, Daniel Fay Newton 6 ,
1848-'49, '54, '68, '72-'74, and Otis Newton 7 , 1851, '52, '58, held that office, as
well as town clerk and town treasurer. Josiah 3 was treasurer 1735, '36, '48, '50,
'52, '53. Abner 4 , son of Thomas 3 , was town treasurer 1739, '46, '47. And Barna-
bas 4 , son of Josiah 3 , town treasurer 1779-'81.

At a meeting October 28, 1724, the evangelical church in Westborough was
organized with twelve members. Josiah Newton was the moderator of the meet-
ing (1724) to call a minister. The first minister was Rev. Ebenezer Parkman.
He recorded on the fly leaf of his church record the names of the first inhabi-
tants of the town, among whom are Thomas 3 and Josiah 3 Newton.

Thomas 3 was one of the original members of the church. Other early mem-
bers of the name were: Josiah 3 , April 4, 1727; his wife, Ruhamah, February
14, 1713; Vashti, wife of Abner 4 (Thomas 3 ), February 22, 1736; Elizabeth,
September 6, 1741, and Barnabas 4 , April 11, 1790 (she was dismissed and he
died) ; and Eunice, the wife of Barnabas 4 , April 11, 1790, the same date as his.

In February, 1728, an earthquake having given opportunity for the minister to
warn the people, the meeting was called to consider charges against Josiah New-
ton 3 , "Military Clerk," and afterward Deacon. Josiah Newton 3 was elected
Deacon, June 8, 1738.

February 5, 1729, the town gave "the vacant room behind ye front Gallery
to" [seven men, one being Abner Newton 4 ], "as far as ye south window, to
build a pew" (in the meeting house), "they making a good seat before their
pew for ye Boys, and mending ye glass and barring ye casement of sd window."

In 1748-'49 Deacon Josiah 3 and Abner 4 Newton were on the building com-
mittee to build a new meetinghouse.

February 6, 1753, Voted to sell no pew-spots to non-residents. The price ranged
from £1. 6. 8. to £5. 12. 9. Deacon Josiah Newton 3 had the "first on left of
pulpit." "Widdo Vashty Newton" had, "in hind seats on right hand, next to
women's door."
