Mr. Newton lost some of his mental power in his old age. The farm passed into
the possession of his son, Rev. Baxter Newton, who continued to reside upon it
for a number of years, and sold it in 1869. The home farm was adjoined by the
farms of the sons, Stephen, Jr., and Lewis — thus making another colony of
Newtons.

Jan. 8, 1835, Darwin Hiram Mann, son of Dr. Joel and Sally (Merick)
Mann of Saratoga County, N. Y., and Cazenovia, N. Y. He was born at
Cazenovia. N. Y., Dec. 15, 1809, and died there Dec. 28, 1844. Mr. Mann
was a farmer ; in politics a Whig, strongly committed to the fortunes
of Henry Clay. He and his wife were Baptists in their religious faith.
The death of her husband left Mrs. Mann with narrow means and five
small children. Her strength of character is demonstrated in her chil-
dren, of whom one has said, "She reared a family, which, taken as a
whole, are more than an average in point of ability." Their children, born
at Cazenovia, N. Y., were :

2972. 1. Newton M. s Mann (Rev.), b. Jan. 16, 1836 ; m. (1) Aug. 8, 1857, Eliza

J. Smith, by whom he had four children; m. (2) at Delphi, N. Y., Aug.
20, 1912, Rev. M. Rowena Morse of Chicago, 111. Rev. Mr. Mann
became a Unitarian clergyman. He received his early education in
the public schools and Seminary of Cazenovia, N. Y. During the Civil
War he was connected with the Western Sanitary Commission, sta-
tioned at Vicksburg, Miss. After the war he began preaching at
Kenosha, Wis. ; later was in Massachusetts for a time ; thence to
Lansingburg, N. Y., where he was settled for a few years. In 1870 he
became pastor of a Unitarian Church at Rochester, N. Y.. and about
1890 removed to Omaha, Neb., where he was pastor of Unity Church.
The headquarters of the Unitarian Ministers at this time was at
Omaha, Neb., Rev. Mr. Mann being the dean. He has held responsible
positions at the head of the church organization. He is considered a
man of talent ; is a powerful speaker ; the author of several books ; at
one time something of an astronomer ; visited Europe several times ; an
up-to-date man. In 1912 he accepted temporarily the pastorate of the
Henry M. Simmons Church at Kenosha, Wis. — the pulpit that had been
vacated in January, 1911, by Rev. Dr. Morse, the lady who was to
become his- wife, who had become pastor of the Third Unitarian Church,
South Kedzie Avenue and West Monroe Street, Chicago, 111. — and
expects to continue in that pastorate as Mrs. Mann. Dr. Morse was
the first woman who received a doctor's degree in Germany. She
applied at Berlin and at Leipzig and was unsuccessful. She appeared
in person before the governors of the University of Leipzig and they
granted her plea. At this marriage the bride was 40 years, and the
groom, 76 years of age. Their P. O. address is Chicago, 111. (?)

2305. HON. WALTER NEWTON 6 (Paul 5 , Nathan 4 , Jonathan 3 , Moses 2 ,
Richard 1 ), son of Paul and Martha (Newton) Newton of Southborough and
Leverett, Mass., was born at Southborough, November 13, 1785, and died at
North Hadley, Mass., March 15, 1880, aged 95 years, 4 months.

He married April — , 1810, Sally Clark, daughter of Captain Nathaniel Clark,
"who was a sea captain on a whaling vessel." She was born at Shutesbury, Mass.,
April, 1784, and died at Worcester, January 10, 1842, aged 58. "Mrs. Newton
was a lovely, Christian woman; plain in her manner; not given to much 'for
show' — she made her home one where people liked to visit." For about a week
in the winter of 1841-'42 she appeared to be out of her right mind and was taken
to the Insane Ashylum at Worcester for treatment, where she died within two
weeks after her arrival. She had one son and brought up, from a small child,
Sarah Clark, who married Lyman Albee Newton. Mrs. Newton was a member of
the Congregational Church at Hadley.

He married (2) Mrs. Mary (Farrar) Tapley.

Mr. Newton was a prosperous farmer in North Hadley. He built himself a
large house, arranged for the family of his son and for himself, which they
occupied — the son succeeding the father as owner of the property.

For several years after his second marriage he lived in Amherst, while his
son carried on the farm — but later he returned and died at his homestead.

In 1837 he was elected and represented his town in the State Legislature at
Boston.

H was a member of the Congregational Church at Hadley. He lived to great
age, and was nearly blind in his last years, yet he was quite well until two or
tbree years before he died. His only child was born at North Leverett.

2333. CAPTAIN MARTIN NEWTON (Nathan 5 , Nathan 4 , Jonathan 3 ,
Moses 2 , Richard 1 ), son of Nathan, Jr.. and Mary (Nichols) Newton of South-
borough, Mass., was born there, June 23, 1786, and died at Fitchburg, Mass.,
October 25, 1863.



318 NEWTON GENEALOGY

He married at Fitchburg, June 18, 1809, Susan Chamberlin, daugbter of
Elisha and Susannah (Brown) Chamberlin of Fitchburg, where she was born
March 23, 1789. She died at Fitchburg, March 20, 1868. Her will, allowed
1868, administered at Fitchburg. Case in Probate. No. 43,436.

Mr. Newton resided in Fitchburg all of his married life. His children were
born there. He came to the town of Fitchburg in 1804, at the age of eighteen,
and was for forty years of his life actively engaged in business there. Nearly
all of that period he was connected with the business of cotton manufacturing.
He lived to see the territory change from its original forest to its now large and
thriving village and to assist in the changes and improvements. He assisted
in building the first machine for spinning cotton in the place in the factory where
now (1863) the Fitchburg Woolen Mill Company carry on business. That was
previous to the year 1810. In 1810 he put in operation two spinning frames in
a building where the Stone Mill stands. The establishment then cost about
$1,800, and the profits the first year amounted to about $1,000. Being success-
ful in this venture he purchased the tract of land between the Stone Mill water
privilege and the Fitchburg Woolen Mill, and in connection with the late Solomon
Strong constructed the waterworks and factory situated on Newton's Lane.
There — part of the time with Judge Strong and part of the time alone — he
manufactured cotton between thirty and forty years, and erected most of the
buildings on that tract of land. He experienced all the changes of prosperity
and adversity incident to the government's changes in the tariff, and in the
long run prospered — and then, when at the age of nearly sixty years, misfortune
overtook him and he lost his property. When a young man he learned the
cabinet-maker's trade. Being industrious and enterprising — and a "born"
mechanic — able to turn his hand to anything, he started again in a different line,
and in the next fifteen years accumulated a property of seven or eight thousand
dollars. He, with Mr. Nehemiah Giles, built the large dwelling house — later
mostly enclosed with stores — where he lived in 1812, when the War with Eng-
land broke out. He was the commanding officer of the Military Company of the
town, hence the style of "Captain."

Captain Newton was an active member and supporter in organizing the pres-
ent Unitarian church and society. He took deep interest in the choir and gave
personal exertions in aid of its efficient support. He was one of the persistent
helpers in organizing the high school, or academy, for the town — everything for
the betterment of the citizens appealed to him. He early became connected with
the Masonic fraternity and for several years was the oldest member of
Aurora Lodge. He was the leading man in introducing in that vicinity the
construction of arched stone bridges, many of which now attest to his good judg-
ment and foresight.

To speak of his personal characteristics seems eminently fitting in a Newton
genealogy. The regret is there is not space here to tell all one desires to record.
I quote from letters to me written by Mr. Garfield who knew him well, and from
the obituary in the Fitchburg Sentinel:

Captain Newton was, first of all, an honorable, upright, square-dealing man,
a man of most unceasing labor and great activity of life. He loved industry as
a matter of honor and of conscience. He was of great kindness of heart,
especially toward those with whom he was connected in business. "He was of
a highly social disposition, mirthful, and full of music. All of the daughters
were singers, and in their younger days sang in the church choir. They were
all capable, intelligent and refined. I knew them all; — a more harmonious,
affectionate and mutually helpful family I never knew. . . . Capt. Newton's
delight was to join with his daughters in singing the old-fashioned tunes — for
he never lost his ability to sing." A nephew, who knew this large family, writes :



BRANCH OF MOSES 319

"What a good generation it was and what a strong tie of affection bound the
brothers and sisters together!"

Captain Newton was rather short in stature — probably not over five feet, five
or six inches. "He was very fond of his mother, and I think religiously obeyed
the dying injunction of his father: — 'Martin, I want you to be a good boy, and
mind your mother.' "

A picture of Captain Newton, the only one he ever posed for, was taken when
he was seventy-three years old. The face of a good man, the several features of
which are repeated again and again in the old men of the Newton family.

Mrs. Newton was a woman of rare executive ability — active, self-reliant and
resourceful, yet most kind hearted and sympathetic — always the same whether
in prosperity or adversity, and always of uniform kindness and helpfulness. She
relates the following incident of her girlhood : — she was one of a family of four
daughters and four sons of Elisha Chamberlin, a Fitchburg farmer. In another
part of the town lived a thrifty, well-to-do farmer, Jonas Marshall by name,
who by reason of a growing family needed extra help in the house. One morn-
ing in the spring of the year 1800, he mounted his horse before breakfast, and
rode to the Chamberlin home, three miles away, and told his errand — he had
come for one of the girls to go and live in his family. The answer was — "Well,
there they are, — take your choice!'' He looked first at one and then another,
and said, "I will take Sukey" ; and without further ceremony mounted his
horse, and "Sukey," — then eleven years old — mounted behind him, and rode to
his home, where she lived till she married Martin Newton. She survived her
husband five years. Mr. Garfield continues : "I knew Jonas Marshall in his old
age; he had his peculiarities — wore a 'queue' — was Uncle Jonas to everybody,
and was considered rich. He had money to loan, at six per cent, — no more, no
less. It was a disappointment to Mrs. Newton that in his will he did not
remember her, though he gave to the town of Fitchburg a sum of money the
income of which was to go to poor widows and unmarried women — who did not
ask aid from the town."
