1513. DAVID NEWTON 4 , SR (Jonathan 3 , Moses 2 , Kichard 1 ), son of Jona-
than, Sr., and Bethia (Rice) Newton of Marlborough, Mass., was born there Feb-
ruary 23, 1718, and died at Southborough, Mass., March 19, 1807, aged 89, C. R.

He married at Southborough, September 12, 1744, Sarah Pike.* She died in
Southborough, February 3, 1754. Three children.

He married (2) at Southborough, July 30, 1755, Abigail Lawrence, daughter
of Benjamin and Jane (Russell) Lawrence:}: of Lexington, Westborough and
Boston, Mass. She was born at Westborough, August 20, 1737, and died at
Southborough, "Widow Newton, October 10, 1816, in her 79th year. C. R."

David Newton, Sr., lived in Southborough, apparently all his life. His chil-
dren were all born there. He was the head of a family there in 1790, as given
in the First United States Census, his family being then "two females," besides
himself. There is no probate record of the settlement of his estate. He is men-
tioned in the will of his father as one of "my other well beloved children," to
whom is given "one shilling in silver money and the reason I give them no
more Now; is because I have given them their full portions in time past."

He married at Southborough, December 22, 1742, Hannah Lawrence. She died
at Southborough, February 10, 1791.

Mr. Newton lived in Southborough, Mass. His children were all born there.
The First United States Census, 1790, shows his large family to have dwindled
down to himself and two females. These last were probably his wife and their
daughter Hannah, or a grandchild.

He is mentioned in the will of his father as one of the children who had
already received his portion, and was given one shilling more. There is no pro-
bate settlement of his estate.

1523. NATHAN NEWTON^ (Jonathan 3 , Moses 2 , Richard 1 ), son of Jona-
than and Bethia (Rice) Newton of Marlborough, Mass., was born there June
23, 1723. "He removed to Vermont and died at advanced age" — may or may not
be true. But he must have died before 1811, to leave his wife Lydia a "widow."

He married at Marlborough-Southborough, Mass., June 5, 1750, Experience
Stow, daughter of Thomas and Hannah (Johnson) Stow* of Marlborough, where
she was bom February 24, 1727. She died in Southborough, May 3, 1755, aged
28. Three children.

He married (2) in Southborough, January 13, 1757, Lydia Hager, daughter of
Ebenezer and Lydia (Barnard) Hager;}: of Marlborough, and Framingham, Mass.
She was born at Framingham, March 4, 1729-'30. "Widow. Lydia, died May 2,
1811, aged 81. C. R."; in Southborough. Three children.

Nathan Newton lived in Southborough. His children were all born there.
The First United States Census, 1790, shows him to be the head of a family there,
which then consisted of himself and two females; these latter being probably
his wife and daughter Lydia.

Bond states that this family later moved to Vermont; but there is no such
tradition in the family.

Nathan Newton was given tools of various kinds in the will of his father, but
nothing of much value, and was made sole executor of the will. His brothers and

settled in Roxbury, Mass., 1634. He was made freeman the same year ; became a member

and his brother Nathaniel 2 owned 600 acres of land between Fairbaven Pond and Sudbury
line. He sold his right in 1000, having moved to Middletown, Conn., about 1650.

Samuel Stow 3 (Thomas 2 ), b. 1045; d. Feb. 9, 1721. aged 70. He returned from Connect-
icut and settled in Marlborough, Mass., before 16S4, when he bought land there and
also was one of the proprietors of the Indian plantation. He became a prominent man in
the town and was the ancestor of the Stows of Marlborough. He married Elizabeth Stone.
who may be the "Wid. Elizabeth Stow" who died "Jan. 17, 1730-7," at Marlborough.

sisters are mentioned as having received "their full portions in time past. To
some of them I have given lands to others household goods or money according to
my ability."

Nathan Newton's granddaughter., Sophia Newton , with whom I have cor-
responded, writes that her grandfather lived in one of the "garrison" houses.
Sine- Jonathan Newton's house was one of the "Garrisons," we suppose that
Nathan Newton lived in the house with his father, and was so living when the
father died and made Nathan executor of his will. The will does not mention
Nathan among the children to whom he had given their "full portions," and the
articles he does give would not now be considered of much worth — "my chest,
my gun, all my chairs, three iron Wedges, an iron bar, an iron stake, an iron Beck
horn, all my Cart irons, one meet tubb, one of my Cider pails, my half bushel
& half my meal troughs, ... all my sider barrels & hogsheds, two augures &
a hand saw" — yet in those days such tools and articles were of real value. It is
possible that Nathan was to inherit his mother's portion, and that it was so
understood.

The descendants of Nathan Newton have no knowledge of his removing to
Vermont in his last years — though he may have done so. There is no probate
record of his estate in Massachusetts — if he had an estate.

The three sons of Nathan Newton were soldiers of the Eevolution.

1524. ELNATHAN NEWTON 4 (Jonathan 3 , Moses 2 , Richard 1 ), son of Jona-
than and Bethia (Rice) Newton of Marlborough, Mass., was born there July 15,
1724. He died at Marlborough, N. H., "August 12, 1792, in his 69th year."

He married at Southborough, Mass., June 19, 1750, Jemima Joslin, daughter
of Abraham and Jemima (Snow) Joslin* of Marlborough, Mass., where she was
born July 29, 1729. She died his widow, at Marlborough, N. H, April 16, 1801,
aged 71.

Elnathan Newton moved about some after his marriage. His oldest child was
born at Holden, Mass. May 10, 1768, he went, with wife and children, Jemima,
Elizabeth, Asahel, Anna, Elnathan and Bethia, from New Braintree, Mass., to
Oakham, Mass., and was "warned out." They were probably on a move to their
permanent home, for the family is not mentioned on the records of either town.
Then they removed to and settled in Marlborough, N. H, where they spent the
remainder of their lives. The historian of Marlborough, N. H, writes of him :
"Elnathan Newton came from New Braintree to Marlborough in 1771 ... he
is supposed to have emigrated from Southborough, Mass. . . . He settled on
the farm since owned by Moses Putney, in the southeast part of Marlborough.
His children were all born in Massachusetts. . . . His son Luke (supposed to
be the same as Zeneth) resided on the farm with Elnathan, his father, was joint
owner with him and came in full possession of the place on the death of his
father."

Elnathan Newton was one of the many citizens of Marlborough, N. H, who
on April 12, 1776, signed as a member of the Committee of Safety, pledging their
lives and fortunes to oppose the British.

As a soldier of the Revolution, Elnathan Newton's name appears oil the pay-
roll of Capt, James Lewis' Company in Col. E. Hale's regiment, one of twenty-
six men who marched June 29, 1777, to reinforce the garrison at Ticonderoga.
At this date he would have been fifty-three years old, which is rather aged to
go a-soldiering; but his son Elnathan would be only thirteen years old, which
would be too young for him. Robert Converse and Phineas Park, other men who
were of the same age, and who also married Newtons, were out in the same com-
pany, so I think it was Elnathan, the father.

Three of the daughters were married in Keene, N. H. Perhaps the family
lived there for a time. The First United States Census, 1790, shows Elnathan
Newton (whom I suppose to be the son) head of a household at Walpole, N. II..
the members of which, besides, were three females.

Elnathan Newton, mentioned in his father's will, received his portion during
the lifetime of the father.

The names and birthdates of his children are all given in the history of Marl-
borough, N. H.
