99. EBENEZEK NEWTON 3 (Moses 2 , Kichard 1 ), son of Moses and Joanna
(Larkin) Newton of Marlborough, Mass., was born there July 26, 1692, and died
at Southborough, Mass., November 16, 1765.

He married at Marlborough, Mass., October 25, 1722, Joanna Larkin, daugh-
ter of Edward 3 and Mary (Walker) Larkin* of Charlestown, Mass., where she
was born March 19 or 25, 1698-9, and died at Southborough, Mass., January 29,
1745-6.

Ebenezer 3 lived in that part of Marlborough which was set off in 1727 as the
town of Southborough. The births of the first three children occurred in Marl-
borough; the births of the last three in Southborough.

Ebenezer Newton was his father's youngest son. When he became of age, the
deeds show that his father gave to him, and to his brother Jacob, jointly, the
homestead and all lands and rights then held by Moses, Sr., except a piece of
meadow. Neither of the young men were then married; had probably always
lived with their parents, who were now advanced in years and willing to give
over into younger hands the management of their affairs.

In the fall of 1722, Ebenezer married, and in the spring of 1724 there was a
readjustment, in order that there might be two families in the house, instead of
only the one and all things in common. The two deeds show how this was
accomplished by gift and exchange. Up to this time they had apparently lived

in YValtham, Feb. 18. 1742 ; m. Barnabas Newton* (s. Josiah 3 ) ; Joseph?, b. in Mendon, 1744 ;
m. 1801, Hepzibah Pratt; res. Westborough, rem. to State of New York, and later to Bond-
town, Ohio, then to Hampden; Lydia 6 , b. Mendon, 1727; m. Whcclock; Elizabeth 5 , b.

Westborough, 1752 ; d. 1756 ; Luc;/ 5 , b. Westborough, 1755.

in the house as one family; as shortly before, Moses, Sr., had made his will,
wherein he says: "my two sons Jacob and Ebenezer (who now dwell together)"
—and besides these sons, there were Moses, Sr., his wife and their granddaughter,
Mercy Leonard. Ebenezer's wife was a grandniece of his mother. [See note to
John Newton 2 .]

I do not find the court settlement of his estate, if there was one. See Moses

FOURTH GENERATION AND CHILDREN

1489. ISAAC NEWTON* of Stafford, Conn. [It seems to me that this is
the eldest son of Moses Newton 3 (Moses 2 , Richard 1 ), born in Marlborough, Mass.

"[Aug. 24.] " (prob. 1696), who married December 8, 1719, Grace Garfield,

and then is not again mentioned on the records of either Marlborough or South-
borough, or the surrounding towns. He simply disappears from that vicinity.
It is not unreasonable to suppose that he knew of the trail down into Connect-
icut and so on to New York City, that soon after his marriage he followed that
trail as far as Windsor, Conn., and finding that place to his mind tarried there
for several years. Later, when the town of Stafford had advanced in population
enough to become desirable as a place of residence — there may have been a
"boom" in town lots — he took up land there.]

The first records of the town of Stafford, Conn., were in 1720. "In 1728 Staf-
ford was laid out as a town in the Colony of Connecticut." "Isaac Newton's
name occurs on the Stafford land records in 1740, 1749 and 1752." "On March
21, 1752, is recorded the sale of land to his son Moses." "In 1748 Isaac Newton
appears on the records as a buyer of land, therein described. Later his son
Moses had some land transferred to him by his father; and thereafter there is
a record of births, marriages and deaths, which can be traced ^down to some of
the family now living."



186 NEWTON GENEALOGY

There are a number of deeds to and from Isaac Newton in the records of East
Windsor, Conn., the dates of which would probably determine whether the father
or the son Isaac Newton was the maker or receiver of the deed.

Some of these pieces of land lay near the Somer line, as some are described as
being in both towns — East Windsor and Somer. Thus father or son Isaac must
have lived somewhere in the Ellington Parish.

It is stated that Isaac Newton, Sr., of Stafford, died in 1771, also that his
grandson Isaac (son of Moses) died May 19, 1771. I have not seen the record.
Unless there were two deaths recorded, I fancy the full date is that of the grand-
father, an<l there was no grandson (s. of Moses) Isaac.

I have found nothing further of the wife Grace Garfield. And as none of the
children of Moses of Stafford have the name it is possible she died and Isaac
had a second wife — name not yet known — all is my conjecture, not proof.

In regard to the children, there are only three of whom we may be reasonably
sure; and there were probably others.

In regard to the then use of the "senior" and "junior," it did not follow that
the persons were father and son. Names were so many times repeated that there
were several living of the same name. Sometimes cousins, uncle and nephew,
were so differentiated.

CHILDREN.

1597. i. Moses 5 , Jr., b. ; m. Persis Bellows.

1598. ii. Amos 5 , Jr., b. ; ni. Prudence Bellows.

1599. iii. Isaa( ••'•, b. ; m. Sarah Levett.

"The will of John Bellows, Jr. (John ), filed August 13, 1772, gives

legacies to his wife Sarah . . . ; to his daughter Persis, wife of Moses Newton
of Stafford, Conn. ; to his daughter Prudence, widow of Amos Newton ; to his
daughter Mary, wife of Joshua Newton of Southborough." The children of John
Bellows, Jr., and wife Sarah, born in Southborough and married there, were:
1. Persis, born September 1, 1727 ; m. May 13, 1747, Moses Newton, Jr. ; 2. Pru-
dence, born July 8, 1729; m. April 26, 1749, Amos Newton; 3. Mary, born
; m. March 11, 1761, Joshua Newton; 4. Jonathan, born August 7, 1731.

Thus it will be evident that Isaac Newton of Stafford and his children were
far from being strangers to the Newtons and Bellows of Southborough — and
farther along there is other evidence. But because we do not certainly know
the parentage of this Isaac Newton, I shall not separate the families of his sons,
but give the several generations all here in a bunch.



1597. 1. MOSES NEWTON 5 of Stafford (Isaac*), styled "Jr.." was probably
born between 1720 and 1725 in Connecticut. He married at Southborough, May
13, 1747, Persis Bellows, daughter of John, Jr., and Sarah Bellows of South-
borough, Mass., where she was born September 1, 1727. [I suppose this is John
Bellows 2 (John 1 ) and second wife Sarah Johnson of Marlborough.]

Moses Newton was a blacksmith and is so designated on the deed in the
Stafford Land Records of March 21, 1752, by which some land was transferred
to him from his father, Isaac Newton, the tract of land being in Stafford town-
ship, Conn.

Moses Newton, with his son John, made guns that were used in the Revolution-
ary War.

It would seem that Moses Newton did not return to Connecticut immediately
after his marriage, but resided in Southborough until after the birth of the two
oldest children, which are recorded there. The third child, born in May at Staf-

ton. Mr. Newton was a blacksmith and assisted his father in making guns which
were used in the War of the Revolution. He was a soldier of that war. A letter
now in the possession of his great grandson, Charles H. Newton, was written
July, 1776, by John Newton to his son John, Jr., then in Camp at Cambridge,
Mass., in Capt. Pease's Company of minutemen — private in the Connecticut
militia. In the list of men in "Connecticut Men in the War of the Revolution,"
there is the service of "John Newton, Smith's Company, enlisted July 20, 1776,
Col. Bradley, discharged Jan. 14, — - Private."

Mr. Newton bought land in Ellington, Conn., and settled there. The First

1598. 2. AMOS NEWTON 5 (Isaac 4 ) is also styled "Jr.," on the records of
South borough, there being others of the name in that town, who were settled
there, while he seems not to have been settled anywhere. He married at South-
borough, April 26, 1749, Prudence Bellows, daughter of John, Jr., and Sarah
Bellows of Southborough, where she was born July 8, 1729. She is mentioned
in her father's will [see above] filed August 13, 1772, as "Widow of Amos New-
ton," which is the only date I have indicating the period of his death. He was
probably about forty-five years old when he died. Their first child was bom in
Southborough; the second at Stafford, Conn., and so recorded on the Southbor-
ough records. About this time his family was with him in Massachusetts. The
Worcester County Warnings show that in April, 1752, Amos Newton, wife and
two daughters from Stafford, Conn., were warned out of Southborough. Warrant
returned to the Court, August 18, 1752. His children were:

1646. i. Hannah , b. March 12, 1750, at Southborough.

1647. ii. Mary , b. Jan. 27, 1752, at Stafford, Conn.



1599. 3. ISAAC NEWTON 5 (Isaac 4 ). We have far from enough data
regarding this son of Isaac Newton of Stafford. Dr. H. O. Allen, town clerk of
East Windsor, Conn., states: "There are a number of deeds in the records of
East Windsor, to and from Isaac Newton, but as Stiles' History says his father's
name was also Isaac, I am in doubt as to which Isaac is meant in each case."
"He must have lived somewhere in the Ellington Parish, very near the Somers
line, as some of the pieces of land are described as being in both towns." The
following dates are from East Windsor, Conn. He married April 19, 175S, Sarah
Levett. Their children were :
