2071. WILLAED NEWTON 5 (Solomon 4 , Ebenezer 3 , Moses 2 , Eichard 1 ), son
of Solomon and Elizabeth (Howe) Newton of Southborough, Mass., was born
there, August 3, 1771, and died in Marlborough, Mass., August 18, 1863, aged
92 years, 15 days.

He married at Southborough, August 30, 1792, Lydia Baker.*

Willard Newton was a prominent and respected citizen in both of the towns
of Southborough and Marlborough. He lived on the old homestead and farm
which had been the property of his ancestors for more than 200 years. The old
mansion was in the town of Southborough until 1843, when it was set off to
Marlborough by act of the Legislature (chapter 89).

It may not be out of place to copy again here, from an old leaflet, "A Sermon
Delivered at Southborough, July 17, 1827. The day which completed a Cen-
tury from the Incorporation of the Town. By Jereboam Parker, minister of
Southborough. Printed by request." John Marsh Printer, State Street, Boston,
1827.

The sermon is long and tiresome. The text is Ecclesiastes 1. 4. The sermon,
of course, has a little history interwoven. The part that interests us is not of
great value except that it is contemporary evidence, quoting: "Notwithstanding
the usual changes and revolutions in human society, and the perpetual fluctua-
tions of property, and after the lapse of nearly one hundred and seventy years,
it is evident from the great number of persons now living within the original
bounds of Marlborough, who bear the names of the first proprietors, that their

in 1792. Which one was the wife of Willard Newton is unknown to me. Some one will
know which, if I set them all down : Lydia, dau. of Joseph and Martha, b. Oct. 30, 1774,
at Westborough. Lidia, dau. Solomon and Hannah, b. April 12, 1770, at Westborough. Lydia,

of Joseph of Marlborough.

possessions in many instances are now in the hands of their descendants. The
Descendants of Richard Newton, one of the original petitioners, have occupied
the same farm, now within the bounds of Southborough, on which he lived and
died, where his great-grandson, Solomon Newton, now lives (1827) aged ninety-
tbree years, and his descendants to the seventh generation. A rare instance in
the history of families in this ever-changing world!"

The leaflet also gives the names of the original proprietors; the list of Dea-
cons from 1730 to 1822, among whom were Gideon Newton, 1756, Josiah New-
ton, 1800; the order of exercises; the committees for arrangement, procession,
dinner, etc.

The procession was under the direction of Col. Jonas Ball, assisted by quite a
number of men, among whom was Major Larkin Newton; Willard and Jere-
miah Newton on the committee of arrangements ; at the dinner Doctor Joseph
Bullard presided, assisted by Mr. Perley Whipple and Willard Newton, Esq.,
as vice presidents; and after the dinner came the toasts, and the end of the
grand time.

Willard Newton was for a long time justice of the peace for the county of
Worcester. He represented the town of Southborough in the General Court for
the civil year which began May, 1811, and the two succeeding years.

He was the first deacon in the TJniversalist Church at Marlborough.

2098. EZEKIEL NEWTON 6 , JE. (Ezekiel 5 , Elisha 4 , Moses 3 , Moses 2 , Eich-
ard 1 ), son of Ezekiel, Sr., and Persis (Wheelock) Newton of Shrewsbury and
Spencer, Mass., was born at Shrewsbury, Mass., May 22, 1757, and was living
March 16, 1812.

He married at Spencer, Mass., August 30, 1780, Catherine Coggswell of Paxton.

Ezekiel Newton was a soldier of the Revolution. Abstract of Service: "Pri-
vate, Capt. Josiah White's Company, Lieut. Col. Benjamin Elagg's division,
Col. Samuel Denny's (Wore. Co.) regiment, marched Aug. 21, 1777, discharged
Aug. 23, 1777, service five days including two days (40 miles) travel home. Com-
pany marched to Hadley on alarm at Northward. Eoll dated at Spencer."

Mr. Newton lived in Spencer, Mass. Eleven children were born to them there.
At the taking of the First United States Census, 1790, the family of Ezekiel
Newton of Spencer consisted of one male above sixteen years, two males below
sixteen years, and four females.

Erom the following letter — which explains itself — from Ezekiel Newton to his
brother Edmund at Spencer, and dated at "Livermore," we may assume that he
had moved from Spencer to a town not far away — probably to Paxton. There is
no town of Livermore in Massachusetts. A local name as here used, perhaps.
This is the latest I have of this Mr. Newton.

Livermore 16th March 1812.
Brother Edmund,

I acknowledge the receipt of your two letters relative to the death of my son Ezekiel.
Immediately after receiving the first letter I determined to visit Spencer, but the diffi-
culty of procuring money prevented nry journey ; and at the time of receiving the
second letter, the difficulty of traveling when the roads are so bad will render it impossible
for me to attend to the business of settling my son's estate.



BRANCH OF MOSES 285

Therefore it is my earnest desire and request that you take the sole management of
settling the estate according to law and the dictates of your own conscience.

(Seal) I assure you I shall be perfectly satisfied with the administration, and I do
by this letter, empower you to administer on the estate of my son Ezekiel deceased,
and grant you all the privileges necessary for so doing. The property you mention as
being left, I wish you to sell and allow such reasonable pay day as will ensure a current
price. If the stock is of such a kind as will let out to pay the interest and keeping, you
will please to put it into some good hands, if otherwise, it will be better to sell it &c

If prosperity is favourable to me, I shall call on you as soon as opportunity will permit,
in the meantime wish you to consider my misfortune, and do that justice to me my
circumstances require. —

I remain in usual health and have the prospect of as much work as I can attend to this

spring.

Yours as usual, Ezekiel Newton.

son of Ezekiel, Sr., and Persis (Wheelock) Newton of Shrewsbury and Spencer,
Mass., was born at Shrewsbury, February 18, 1764, and died at Spencer, May 17,
1854, aged 90.

He married [int. at Oakham Sept. 4, 1786], Sally Britton* of Oakham, Mass.,
born about 1769, and died at Spencer, March 27, 1819, aged 50. G. S. in Spencer.

He married (2) at Eutland, Mass., April 20, 1820, Mrs. Sarah Goodale of Eut-
land. She was born about 1776, and died at Spencer, July 22, 1826, aged 50.
G. S. in Spencer.

He married (3) at Spencer, December 5, 1827, Amelia ("Emilia," "Milley")
Prouty, daughter of Joseph and Betsey (Draper) Prouty of Spencer, where she
was born January 7, 1796.

Mr. Newton was living in Spencer in 1790. The First United States Census,
taken that year, gives his family there as consisting of only himself and one
female, who would be his first wife. From this I am led to think she had no
children, though she may have had, of course.

In 1812 he was living in Spencer and was appointed administrator to settle
the estate of his nephew, Ezekiel Newton, 3d (Ezekiel , Jr.).

He died intestate and his estate was administered at Spencer in 1854. Case in

1771, and died at Westminster, July 29, 1842. Burial there. G. S.

He married at Eutland, Mass., November 7 or 9, 1800, Phebe How, daughter
of Matthias, Jr., and Azubah (Davis) How* of Kutland, where she was born

, and baptized there July 21, 1776. C. R. She died at Westminster, his

widow, June 11 or 14, 1844, aged 68. Consumption.

Mr. Newton settled in Westminster, where all of his large family of thirteen
children were born. September 24, 1794, he bought of Benjamin Richardson of
Sterling, "the 3d and 4th Division Lott," and made the first improvements on it;
building a house and fitting it for a home. It became the estate of his son
Joel, who was the only one of his children to settle in Westminster.

In 1818, Mr. Newton and his wife Phebe were members of the Congregational
Church in Westminster. Although his father was taxed there on the lands he
owned at an early date, he was probably only a transient resident.

He died without making a will and his estate was administered at Westminster
in 1824. Case in Probate, No. 43,449.
