She married (2) at Framingham, June 18, 1820, William Annetts, by
whom she had two children. [There died at Southborough, "William
Annetts, a foreigner, March 14, 1831, aged 52," who may have been the
husband of Relief.] Her children, born at Southborough, were:

James Mallard, widower, aged 69, son of James and Elizabeth-. [He had
married (1) at Marlborough, April 21, 1806, Betsey Brigham (dau.
Jotham) and lived in Lancaster. She died in Marlborough, Sept. 20,
1847.] James Mallard was living when his wife Relief died. The
statement is that he "survived her."

1870. NATHAN NEWTON 5 , JE. (Nathan 4 , Jonathan 3 , Moses 2 , Kichard 1 ),
son of Nathan and Lydia (Hager) Newton of Southborough, Mass., was born
there January 23, 1760, and died there April 18, 1798, aged 38. The estate of
Nathan Newton, Jr., of Southborough was administered there in 1798. Case in
Probate Court, No. 43,344.

He married at Framingham [the record of it there says "in Southborough,"
but no record of the marriage appears in Southborough], "November 8, 1783,"
and duplicate July — , 1784, Mary (called "Polly") Nichols, daughter of Lieut.
Joseph and Sarah (Goddard) Nichols:}: of Framingham, where she was born
October 16, 1762. She died at Southborough, November 22, 1850, aged 88.

i The following is from "a manuscript record of the family of Joseph Nichols. Jr., in the
hand writing of Capt. Martin Newton, in which every letter and figure is as clean and dis-
tinct as print. He probably copied it from the family Bible." The figures and names do not
always coincide with those of the town records [which I will here enclose in brackets] :

"A Record of Joseph and Sarah Nichols Family.

Joseph Nichols born at Shrewsbury Jan 8, 1740. [Jan. 6]. Joseph Nichols married to

Solomon Nichols " April 13, 1788."

Three is no record in Framiugham of the last two children. No death of any Nichols before
1850. All of these children are sons or daughters of '•Lieut." (or "Jr." or "2nd") "Joseph
and Sarah Nichols" as though there had been no change of mother. The int. of Joseph
Nichols and Sarah Goddard is at Shrews.. Nov. 20, 1701. She was the dau. of Benjamin*
(Edw. 3 , Wm. 2 , Edw. 1 ) and Grace (Fiske) Goddard of Shrews. Lieut. Joseph Nichols was the
son of Joseph and Martha 4 (Howe, dau. of Samuel 3 , Samuel-. John How*) Nichols of Fram-
ingham, who had there John, 1731 ; Martha, 1733 ; Joseph. Oct. 8, 1738 ; and Alpheus, 1762.
There were Nichols in Barnstable, Mass.. in 1070; and in Scituate, 1688-9; some of them
named Joseph. Later a Joseph was in Pembroke. Also there is a line from James 1 of
Maiden, 1660, through James 2 , James 3 , John 4 . Ebenezer\ Joseph", b. 1794, d. 1823. I give
these hints to anvone who cares to look further. I have not traced them.


She had five children by this marriage. She married (2) in Southborough,
July 11, 1802, Joel Brewer,* Sr., by whom she had two children. He was a
widower with eight children, his first wife being Lovisa Newton, a sister of
Nathan Newton 6 , Jr., both of whom had died within less than a year and a
half of each other. For children by this first wife see under the heading of
her father, Nathan Newton 4 . The children of Joel and Polly Brewer were:
Polly, born February 27, 1803, married November 25, 1823, Elijah D. Whipple
(they had a son Adolphns Perley Whipple, born February 27, 1825) ; David, bom
March 16, 1806; married (int. November 29, 1834) Polly B. Howe of Marl-
borough, and had a second and a third wife, I am told.

Mrs. Polly (Nichols-Newton) Brewer must have been a remarkable woman.
Many characteristic anecdotes are told by her descendants of her mild and gentle
way of reproving, and the sidelights they cast on her manner of managing three
sets of children in the Brewer household — and a not always pleasant husband

She was a very small woman. Her son Martin was rather short in stature —
probably not over five feet, five or six inches — but when he held his arm out
horizontally, she could stand upright under it without touching. Her young
granddaughters thought it no hardship when they might carry her in their arms.
She was dearly beloved by all her family. Mr. Brewer died before she did, but
the record of his death I have not obtained.

Nathan Newton, Jr., lived all his life in Southborough, Mass., and died there,
according to the family records and all family knowledge of him; yet the town
records do not show his death nor the births of his children, who were born

The First United States Census, 1790, has : "Nathan Newton, Jr., head of a
household in Southborough, that consists of two males [one is himself] above
sixteen years, one male below sixteen years and two females."

Like his brother Paul, Nathan Newton, Jr., was a soldier of the Revolution.
An abstract of his service is: "Newton. Nathan, Private in Capt. Moses Har-
rington's Company, Col. Dike's regiment, muster roll Dec. — , 1776, to Feb.,
1777, credited to the town of Southborough, Mass., Enlisted Dec. 20, 1776, reg-

of his menial condition he was a source of anxiety to his friends. He
never married.

1882. LUKE NEWTON 5 (Elnathan*, Jonathan 3 , Moses 2 , Richard 1 ), son of
Elnathan and Jemima (Joslin) Newton of Southborough, Holden, Oakham and
New Braintree, Mass., and Marlborough, N. H., was born November C, 1755.
He died at Marlborough, N. H., July 22, 1839.

He married at Southborough, Mass., November 21, 1782, Sally Hayden, daugh-
ter of Thomas and Mary (Ball) « Hayden* of Sudbury, Mass., where she was
born March 28, 1758. She died at Marlborough, N. H., November 8, 1826.

Luke Newton is mentioned as the eldest son of Elnathan and Jemima and
was born November 6, 1755. He is supposed to be the same as Zeneth, born the
same date [or he may have been twin with Zeneth]. However that may be, the
name Zeneth disappears, and the boy, Luke Newton from Braintree, Mass.,
was "warned out" from Southborough, August 16, 1763. He may have been
visiting his grandfather and the zealous officers thought he staid too long.

I find him next, a young man of less than twenty, as a soldier of the Revolu-
tion. An abstract of service: "Newton. Luke. Southborough. Private in Cap-
tain Elijah Bellows' Company, inarched April 19, 1775, served 16 days. Also,
in Capt, Seth Newton's Company, Col. Whitney's regiment, engaged August 21,
1777, discharged August 26, 1777, alarm at Bennington, proceeded on horses."

Luke Newton apparently staid in the vicinity of Southborough for a num-
ber of years, long enough to become acquainted with the girl of Sudbury he
was to marry in 1782.

Whether he went with his father in 1771 to Marlborough, N. II., and returned,
does not appear. But he was there with his wife soon after marriage and their
children were born there.

. His father, Elnathan Newton, had settled on a farm in the southeastern part
of Marlborough, N. II., and Luke resided with him and was joint owner of the
property, and came into full possession, on the death of his father. This land
was in District No. 6, "The East School Squadron," and then contained ten
other families.

In 1800 the school had been kept in the house of Timothy Bemis, who received
four shillings per week for the use of his house. This price was considered too
dear. The following year the schools were kept at the house of Luke Newton.
who charged thirty-three cents per week. This house was 20 x 24 feet, 10 foot
posts, surmounted by a square roof, and attained great age.

The name of Luke Newton does not appear in the First United States Census.
1790, as head of a household or in any other way. It seems queer, when
Elnathan, Luke and Luke, Jr.. were all three living on and owning the home-
stead at Marlborough, N. H, at that date.

1891. JAMES NEWTON 5 (Andrew 4 , James 3 , Moses 2 , Richard 1 ), son of
Andrew and Mehitabel (Bellows) Newton of Southborough and Framingham,
Mass., was born at Southborough, August 24, 1751, and died February 23, 1824,
probably at Truxton, Cortland Co., N. Y.

He married at Hopkinton, Mass., November 15, 1769, Bathsheba Nurse, daugh-
ter of Joseph and Sarah (Walkup) Nurse:}: of Hopkinton, where she was born
November 9, 1752. She had nine children.

He married (2) Rachel Greeley, who was born April 22, 1765, and died, possibly
in Medina County, Ohio, September 24, 1841. One child.

James Newton was "of Framingham" at date of his marriage, and before
that his name appears with his father's family in the history of that town.
As a soldier of the Revolution, he was enrolled as of Framingham. There are
no births nor deaths of this family in Framingham nor in Hopkinton; but the
five children given below were all baptized in Christ Church at Hopkinton. There
was no James Newton head of a family in Massachusetts at the taking of the
First United States Census, 1790. After the war he went to Putney, Windham
County, Vt., and is the James Newton there, head of a household that consists
in all of two males above sixteen years, three males under sixteen years, and five

In 1775, as a man skillful in working in metals, he was given a position in
the shipbuilding yards at Plymouth; later at Salem, and after the evacuation
of Boston by the British, in that city. It will be remembered that his father had
a forge in Framingham.

Otsego County, N. Y. — twelve miles east of Cooperstown. About 1820 he

father died in 1824 and Elijah did not leave Truxton, N. Y. until 1830.
