260 NEWTON GENEALOGY

1899. JOSIAH NEWTON 5 (Joseph 4 , James 3 , Moses 2 , Richard 1 ), son of
Joseph and Experience (Drury) Newton of Southborough, Templeton and Hub-
bardston, Mass., was born at Southborough, August 22, 1766, and died at Heath,
Mass., December 2, 1817, aged 51 years.

He married at Templeton, May 26, 1796, Phebe Wiley, daughter of Moses and
Phebe (Fitts) Wiley* of Templeton, Mass., where she was baptized October 13,
1776. C. E. She died at Heath, Mass., May 1, 1841.

Mr. Newton was a farmer. Born in Southborough, he went with his parents
to Hubbardston, Mass., where he continued to reside for a time after his marriage.
His first three children were born there. Then he appears in Phillipston, Mass.,
where his sons Levi and Dan were born. In the latter part of 1806 he removed
to Heath. Mass., where his three youngest children were born, and where he and
his wife died and are buried.

At date of his death, his youngest child was a little over two years old. His
widow, left with a family of young children, must have been a strong, energetic
woman, not lacking in executive ability, for she cared for them well. Both Mr.
and Mrs. Newton were Congregationalists, and strong in the faith. Their chil-
dren and grandchildren, while not attaining political honors, have been self-
respecting, upright, God-fearing men and women, engaged, with good abilities,
in a variety of useful occupations.

1934. ALVAN NEWTON 5 (Paul- 1 , Josiah 3 , Moses 2 , Kichard 1 ), son of Deacon
Paul and Mary (Farrar) Newton of Westborough and Northborough, Mass., was
born in Westborough, September 22, 1748, and died in Northborough, February
16, 1778, aged 29.

The estate of Alvan Newton was administered without a will at Northborough
in 1778. Case in Probate, No. 43,037.

Alvan Newton was a soldier of the Revolution. He died before the end of the
war. The following is an abstract of his service : "Alvin Newton. Northboro.
Corporal in Capt. Samuel Wood's Company of Minute-men, Gen. Ward's regi-
ment, marched April 19, 1775, served 22 days. Also. Sergeant of Lieut. Seth
Pice's Company, Col. Job Cushing's regiment. Enlisted August 21, 1777, served
7 days including 3 days (65 miles) travel home, Company to assist Northern
Army and discharged at Hadley."

Mr. Newton resided in Northborough, where his children were born. He mar-
ried (intention in Weston, Mass., November 9, 1771) Rebecca Rice of Weston.

Mrs. Rebecca Newton's youngest child was born after she had been a widow
for nearly five months with four other very young ones dependent on her care.
We do not know what her circumstances were. The family have only the knowl-
edge that she married again — a Mr. Goodenough, who made the after life of the
family of children very miserable. This name Goodenough is spelled also Good-
enow and Goodnow and Goodno — almost any way the town clerk pleased.
Thomas Goodnow, and wf . Jane, were in Sudbury in 1639 ; had children there.
They had many descendants in the towns of Marlborough-Southborough- West-
borough, and Northborough, and others. I find no marriage of a Rebecca New-
ton to a Goodnow, Goodenough; but in Northborough appears the baptism of
"Lewis Goodnow, son of Eli and Rebeecah, April 14, 1782." This Eli Goodnow 5
was born in Westborough, January 28, 1751, son of Thomas 4 and Persis (Rice),
son of Samuel 3 , Jr., and Sarah ; son of Samuel 2 and Mary ; son of Thomas 1 and
Jane Goodenow. I find nothing further of either Eli or Rebecca.
