Jonathan and Judith (Newton) Stone of Southborough, where she was born
June 5, 1743. She died .

David Newton, Jr., married (2) at Southborough, December 7, 1779, Elizabeth
Newton (1857), daughter of Gideon and Hannah (Lawrence) Newton of South-
borough, where she was born April 17, 1755, his cousin. The church record at

Southborough has the death of " , wife of David Newton, June 5, 1793."

No town record of the death.

David Newton, Jr., lived in Southborough until after 1788. Six children were
bora there. Later he moved to Spencer, Mass. The town record there has the
birth of "Nabby, dau. of David and Elizabeth Newton, born May 30, 1794."
It seems to me there is an error in the record, either of the year of birth of the
child, or year of death of the mother. The child might have been born in
Spencer; the mother have died there the following month, and her body taken
to Southborough for burial ; and the church there have the only record of the
death. The First United States Census, 1790, gives David Newton head of a
family at Spencer, which consists of himself, three males below sixteen years,
and three females.

David Newton was a soldier of the Revolution. His name appears on the rolls
as follows and is the only soldier given bearing that name in Massachusetts :
"David Newton. Private in Capt. Thomas Whipple's Company of Guards,
enlisted April 20, 1780, discharged Dec. 20, 1780, stationed at Rutland. Also,
David Newton, in Capt. Timothy Ruggles' company of Guards, enlisted Jan-
uary 24, 1781, discharged December 26, 1781, service at Rutland."

1856. GIDEON NEWTON 5 , JP. (Gideon*, Jonathan 3 , Moses 2 , Richard 1 ),
son of Gideon and Hannah (Lawrence) Newton of Southborough, Mass., was
born there May 21. 1752, and died at Marlborough, N. H., March 1, 1822, aged
nearly 70 years.

He married at Southborough, September 5, 1776, Phebe Temple, daughter of
Thomas and Sarah (Parker) Temple of Framingham, Mass.. where she was born
April 1, 1750. "She died at Roxbury, Vt., January 13, 1822, aged nearly 72
years."

Gideon Newton. Jr., seems to have left his native town soon after marriage.
The historian of Marlborough, N. EL, states: "He settled about 1780 on the
farm now known as the Guild place, in Roxbury, N. H., since owned by G. W.
Nye." [I find no town of Roxbury in* New Hampshire on Century Atlas.] Dur-



BRANCH OF MOSES 243

ing the years 1789-1794, the population of Marlborough, N. H., increased so
rapidly by the arrival of new settlers that it became necessary to redistrict the
town. At a meeting, April 21, 1794, a committee of nine men were chosen for
that purpose, one of whom was Gideon Newton. His property fell into No. East
District, now known as School District No. 1 — the largest in the town, contain-
ing forty-two families.

Between the dates 1789 and 1794 he was living at Dublin, N. H. [A town
a few miles East of Marlborough, N. H.], where at the taking of the First United
States Census, 1790, he was head of a family consisting of himself, one male
below sixteen years, and two females.

But he died at Marlborough, N. EL, as above stated; his daughter and her
family living with him on the Newton farm as narrated below.

borough, Mass., October 4, 1854. She was the mother of his ten children. She
married (2) at Southborough, April 29, 1826, Lot Rice* (2d wife) of Wayland,
Sudbury, Framingham and Southborough.

Deacon Josiah Newton lived in Southborough. His children were born there.
The record of his family is also given in the published records of the town of
Hopkinton, where he may have resided more or less. The First United States
Census, 1790, gives Josiah Newton at Southborough, head of a family which
besides himself consisted of one male under sixteen years and three females.

Although so young at the time, Josiah Newton was a soldier of the Revolution.
The Revolutionary rolls show the following service : ''Josiah Newton. South-
borough. Private in Capt. Moses Harrington's Company, Col. Dike's regiment,
enlisted December 20, 1776." Then there are other terms of enlistment, to serve
at or about Boston until January 1, 1779, or unless sooner discharged.

Another service which I think was performed by this man was : "Josiah New-
ton. Private in Capt. Daniel Grout's Company, Col. Enoch Hallet's regiment,
enlisted August 9, 1780, discharged October 30, 1780."

The estate of Deacon Josiah Newton was administered 1S22, at Southborough,
without a will. Case in Probate Court, No. 43,265.

Josiah Newton was head of a household in Southborough as shown in the First
United States Census, 1790. The other members of it were one male under
sixteen years and three females.

James Rice (son of Lot Rice by his first marriage) married Eleanor Newton.
Their daughter writes: "Elizabeth (Haynes) Newton married my grandfather,
Lot Rice. She was the widow of Dea. Josiah Newton. Her children were all mar-
ried and settled in life, as were his, before their marriage. They owned a small
farm in the southerly part of Southborough about three miles from us. When
grandfather became too infirm to live alone, father persuaded them to spend a
winter with us. They came, and grandfather died with us, on March 27, 1848.
His wife went to live in Ashland or Hopkinton with her daughter. She had
some Indian blood in her veins. She was of stalwart proportions; straight as
an arrow when past 80 years. She was a very smart, active, intelligent, Christian
woman. I remember her well." "Her children were a remarkably capable and
intelligent people."

I do not know about the "Indian blood," and doubt the statement. Her
pedigree is given below.

i John Pike and Dorothy Date m. June 17, 1612-13. [Wiltshire Parish Reg., Eng.] The
date is about right for the m. of John Pike of Salisbury ; but it is said his wife's name was
Mary Washington.

John Pike 1 , with wife and five children, came to New England in 1635. He sailed from
Southampton, registered as "laborer" ; but he must have been a man of education and
marked ability. The next year (1636) he appears as attorney for a Mr. Eson, plaintiff, versus
Robert Cole, defendant, and won the suit. His two oldest sons, John Pike 2 , Jr., and Major
■ Robert l'U;i". must have received their education in England as they at once took prominent
places in the colony. Coffin says in his History of Newbury: "No laborer in those days had
two sucli educated sons." There are legal documents extant showing the intimacy of the
Washington, Pike and Heyward families — and probable connection between them. [Con-
densed from Boston Transcript Genealogical Dept., May, 1012.]

The following Pike record is from the town records of Hopkinton. Mass. I have not tried
to find the connection with the above immigrant.

daughter of Amos and Elizabeth (Child) Johnson of Framingham, where
she was born Oct. 20, 1800. No children.

The following is from a letter written by the Rev. W. H. Watson of
Fayville, Mass., a retired Baptist clergyman, who had been associated with
Trof. Calvin Newton for five years : "Calvin Newton, A.M., M.D.. was
one of the most distinguished and honorable sons of Southborough. He
was a stalwart man physically and intellectually ; was most kind and
generous, loving and lovable. He was a graduate of I'nion College
Schenectady, N. Y. In 1832, he was elected to the professorship of rhetoric
and Hebrew in Waterville College (now Colby i . Maine. After remaining
