I do not know who the last wife of Ezra Newton 6 was; but from the record
of the following death perhaps they were somehow related, namely: Abigail
Bellows, daughter of Barnabas Bellows of Boylston, died at Ezra Newton's,

October 19, 1810. Another record of it, in Princeton, is, " , child of Mr.

Bellows, Oct., 1810." P. K.

The children of Ezra Newton were all born at Princeton. He went to
Worcester some time after that.

(I suppose at Framingham, Mass., September 13, 1781).

He married at Westborough, Mass., February 25, 1761, Hannah Dudley, "both
of Southborough." She died at Framingham, the widow of Solomon Newton,
about 1810.

Solomon Newton "from Southborough," was a citizen of Framingham, where
his two children were born. He was a soldier of the Revolution from that town,
and died in the service. He, with his brother Ephraim, enlisted in the Conti-
nental Army, for the town of Framingham, for the term of three years. A
descriptive list, as returned December 2, 1780, gives his "age, 30 years, 5 feet
10 inches, complexion light, hair brown, eyes blue, occupation, farmer, engaged
for the town of Framingham, term three years, private. Reported to have died
September 13, 1781; wages payable to Ephraim Newton, dated May 24, 1781,
signed by Hannah widow of Solomon, and Selectmen of the town." The men
from Framingham received from the town "the sum of $100, hard money,"
and signed a receipt for the same, April 16, 1781.

There is a long list of items and enlistments as to his service in the army
not here given. One paper containing his name is a petition addressed to Col.
Samuel Bullard, dated at Framingham, June 1, 1776, asking that the Company of
Captain Jesse Eames be divided into two companies. James Newton of Fram-
ingham (s. of Andrew 4 ) also was a member of Capt. Jesse Eames' Company and
petitioned for the division.

New York State.

He married at Framingham, March 2, 1784, Abigail Claflin, daughter of Lieut.
