FIFTH GENERATION AND CHILDREN

1720. ELISHA NEWTON 5 , JR. (Elisha 4 , Moses 3 , Moses 2 , Richard 1 ), son of
Elisha and Sarah (Tomlin) Newton of Marlborough and Shrewsbury, Mass., was
born at Shrewsbury, February 7, 1729-30. He died and his son Asa Newton was
appointed administrator of his estate November 3, 1801. Shrewsbury.

He married at Concord, Mass., Sarah Miles, daughter of Deacon Samuel and
Keziah ( ) Miles* of Concord and Shrewsbury, Mass., born at Shrews-
bury, January 29, 1732, died there July 27, 1766.

He married (2) at Weston, Mass., "September 1, 1767, by Mr. Samuel Wood-
ward, minister of the gospel," Mrs. Mary Hager of Weston.

Elisha Newton, Jr., lived in Shrewsbury until after the births of seven chil-
dren there recorded. No deaths of any of the family appear on the records.

I suppose he is the Elisha Newton, head of a family in Shrewsbury, enumer-
ated in the First United States Census, 1790 — the whole number in the family
being two males upward of sixteen years, two males under sixteen years, and
three females. It is probable that the household was made up of himself, wife
and the family of one of his sons or daughters, probably son Asa, who gave bond

1721. EZEKIEL NEWTON 5 (Elisha 4 , Moses 3 , Moses 2 , Kichard 1 ), son of
Elisha, Sr., and Sarah (Tomlin) Newfon of Shrewsbury, Mass.,' was born there,
May 9, 1733, and died probably at Spencer in the early part of 1800.

He married at Shrewsbury, November 24, 1755, Persis Wheelock, daughter of
Samuel and Huldah (Eice) Wheelock* of Marlborough and Shrewsbury, Mass.
She was born at Shrewsbury, September 19, 1732, and died after February 4,
1800, being then mentioned as living. Her sister married her husband's brother,
Timothy Newton 5 .

Mr. Newton lived in Shrewsbury, where the births of three children are
recorded, and no further mention of the family there. He may have moved to
Spencer about 1775-8, where the daughter, Azubah, was born; and I think he
did, and that he is the person referred to in the First United States Census,
1790, as Ezekiel Newton of Spencer, head of a family which consisted of one
male above sixteen years (himself), one male below sixteen years, and two
females. This is confirmed by his will, in which he is designated as of Spencer.
I have not the exact date of his death, but it probably occurred sometime in
January, 1800.

The following is an abstract of his will and the papers in the case :

She was the dau. of John Stodder, Sr., of Hinghani, whose will, dated 1661, gives to this

was one of those who signed a memorial to the General Court for a continuance of their

1724. TIMOTHY NEWTON 5 (Elisha 4 , Moses 3 , Moses 2 , Richard 1 ), son of
Elisha, Sr., and Sarah (Tomlin) Newton of Shrewsbury, Mass., was born there
May 17, 1737, and died at Hubbardston, Mass., June 30, 1818, in his 82d year.

He married at Shrewsbury, February 10, 1763, Huldah Wheelock, daughter of
Samuel and Huldah (Rice) Wheelock of Marlborough and Shrewsbury, Mass.,
born at the latter place July 20, 1741, and died at Hubbardston, June 13, 1798,
aged 57. She was a sister of the wife of Timothy's brother. See note to Ezekiel
Newton (1721) for pedigree.

He married (2) at Hubbardston, November 21, 1799, Mrs. Lydia Martin, who
died his widow, August 4, 1840, aged 86.

The First United States Census, 1790, shows Timothy Newton the head of
a household at Hubbardston, his family, three males above sixteen years, three
males below sixteen years old, and two females. Mr. Newton's first child was
born at Shrewsbury, Mass. All of the others were born at Hubbardston, Mass.
Just when and for how long he resided in the several towns where his name
appears on the records, I do not know. His second child, Joel, was baptized in
the church at Templeton, Mass., October 5. 1766, C. R., as the son of Timothy
Newton of North Rutland. He owned lands in Westminster, at an early date, and

a large family there. The History of Hubbardston has a list of the aged persons
who have gone from the town "to spend their last days and died elsewhere" —
and one is Timothy Newton, aged 81, and his wife, Lydia, aged 86.
