2215. EZEKIEL NEWTON 6 (Edward 5 , Edward 4 , Edward 3 , Moses 2 , Rich-
ard 1 ), son of Captain Edward and Sarah (Winch) Newton of Lancaster, Mass.,
and Weathersfield, Vt., was born at Lancaster, October 13, 1780, and died [at
Braintree, Mass.] October 15, 1850.

He married at Weathersfield, Vt., February 22, 1800, Rispah Bisby, born March
17, 1783, and died at Weathersfield, Vt., September 20, 1801, leaving one child.

He married (2) at Weathersfield, Vt., May 1, 1803, Olive L. Whitcomb, who
was born September 23, 1784, and died 18, 1880.

"I am quite certain that our grandfather Ezekiel 6 lived in Weathersfield, Vt.,
that he married his first wife, Rispah, there, and there she died, leaving one
daughter, whom we afterward knew as Aunt Rispah.

"Our grandmother, Olive Whitcomb, went there to live with her brother, whose
name, I think, was Perez Whitcomb, who went there from Cohasset. While
there she met and married the widower, EzekieJ Newton.

"I think that Minot and perhaps Cynthia were born there. Then they moved
farther west into the wilderness around Lakes George and Champlain and settled
at a place called Hague, very near Fort Ticonderoga. Here I think Lincoln and
Henry were born.

"Of course you know the story of the Indians getting too thick around there
in the 1812 war, and how they left their crops unharvested and loading them-
selves and their four children and everything they had in the world into an
oxcart, and with a yoke of oxen for propelling power, started for somewhere and
brought up in Braintree. This is the story as I have heard it from Grandmother
Newton. At Braintree Grandfather Ezekiel worked many years for Major
Stetson on his farm and your father was named for the Major, Amos Stetson.''

found, and what I have received from the family, are confusing, and meager.
There are probably many faults — though I think in the main this record is
correct.

The granddaughter of "Ephraim Newton, whose wife was Polly," states that
he died May 6, 1859, at Hardwick, Mass., where both he and his wife are buried.

He married at Southborough, June 30, 1808, Polly Woods (2166), daughter
of John, Jr., and Levina (Newton) Woods* of Southborough, where she was born
March 4, 1786. She died at Hardwick, February 1, 1865.

Their first child was born in Southborough, 1809. In November, 1809, a little
more than a year after his marriage, he was in Barre, Mass., where an exchange
of papers was signed for a farm and buildings he had purchased of Capt. Gideon
Tenney, gentleman, and wife, Betsey (Child) Tenney. These Tenneys were from
Hardwick and Northborough. After that he lived in Hardwick and removed
from there about 1849 and went to live in the adjoining town of Greenwich.

Ebenezer Newton is styled "Jr." at the intention of marriage, also in the
record of his marriage, when he was "of Southborough."

He removed from Southborough soon after marriage, going to Hawley, Mass.,
later to Leicester, thence to Oxford, where he resided about ten years, and last
to the adjoining town of Ward (now Auburn), where he spent the rest of his
life. The births of his children I have gathered from the records of those towns.

2261. SILAS NEWTON 6 (Gideon 5 , Gideon 4 , Jonathan 3 , Moses 2 , Richard 1 ),
son of Gideon 5 , Jr., and Phebe (Temple) Newton of Southborough, Mass., and

Marlborough, N. H., was born September 3, 1779, and died , 1833, aged

about 54.

He married, probably, at Acton, Mass., March 10, 1807, Sarah Chaffin, daugh-
ter of Robert, Jr., and Hannah (Tenney) Chaffin* of Acton, Mass., where she
was born January 19, 1781 ; died, "widow of Silas Newton," February 25, 1868,
aged 87.

Silas Newton lived in Marlborough, N. H. Nine children are given in the
history of that town. It is said there were ten in all. In 1823 he moved to
Westminster, Vt., where he lived about three years, thence to Surry, three years,
then to Westmoreland in 1829, where he was engaged in the manufacture of
earthenware, and was known there as "Potter Newton." He is spoken of as
being a very religious man, attached to the Congregational Church, including
its views and practicing its duties. When a young man he had a strong desire
to obtain a collegiate education and to fit himself for the ministry, but his parents
did not see fit to second his wishes and he was obliged to give up the idea. He
had a more than ordinary inquisitive and penetrating mind, holding opinions on
many topics different from those around him, and probably for that reason was
considered rather eccentric. [Hist. Marlborough, N. H., p. 588.]

In 1813, Silas Newton kept a hotel in Marlborough, N. H., on the site of
the house later owned by Granville Morse.
