Vermont. To the surrounding country Brattleborough, with its several
banks, is the financial centre. Among his other offices he was elected a
director, and in 1891, vice president of the Vermont Savings Bank. He
has the honor of being the veteran town clerk in New England. He was
first elected March 3, 1863, and served continuously for forty-eight years.
He missed attendance at only two town meetings, illness being the cause
in both instances. Failing health obliged him to decline reelection in
March, 1911 ; but so accustomed were the citizens to seeing him there,
that by a vote of the town he was requested to use the rooms of the
office of the clerk whenever he was able to conduct private business. He
was made justice of the peace at the town meeting following his election
as town clerk, and soon attained the dignity of trial justice of the town.
It was while so continuously acting in hundreds of important cases that
he fairly earned the title of "Judge." It has been estimated by those
in a position to know, that he officiated at more than 500 marriage
ceremonies. He loved his office, and every article in it had a message for
him. His long tenure of office brought him a wide acquaintance, for the
jurisdiction of a justice of the peace is much more extended in Vermont
than it is in other states. He was a Whig and later a Republican in
politics ; a member of the Congregational Church and of the Columbian
Lodge of Free Masons.

He married at the home of the clergyman in West Brattleborough, Vt.,
March 30, 1858. Mrs. Lucinda W. (Goodrich) Harris, daughter of David
and Salome (Wheeler) Goodrich of Chesterfield, N. H. She was born
April 3, 1818, and died Jan. 29, 1903, after an invalidism of forty-seven
years. She married (1) 1838, Noyes Harris, who died Aug. 11, 1842, by
whom she had a daughter, Anna Loraine Harris, born Jan. 31, 1849. at
Caledonia, N. Y. : married at Brattleborough, Vt., Jan. 10, 1871, Charles
Dean Brooks of Westminster, Mass. After the death of her husband. Mrs.
Brooks kept house for Mr. Newton, in his home at Brattleborough, Vt.
He had no children.

He married in Monson, Mass., Betsey Lee Merrick, daughter of Noah 5 and
Elizabeth (Bishop) Merrick of Hardwick, Mass., where she was born March
16, 1793. She was descended from Thomas Merrick 1 , born in Wales in 1620,
who came to America in 1636, to Roxbury, Mass., Hartford, Conn., 1638 and
Springfield same year, through his son James 2 , grandson James 3 , great-grandson
Phineas 4 , who was father of Noah 5 , born 1760; married three times and was a.
soldier of the Revolution, serving through the war.

Lemuel D. Newton removed to New York State about or before 1830, and

* Griffin. See note to Silas Newton. 4

% Mr. IIorack W. Newton 7 (Selim", Stephen , Silas* of Hardwick) of Fond du Lac, Wis.,
Writing me in 1900, says that when he was visiting the home of his ancestors in Hardwick,
"There was one bOy named Lemuel, and one boy — I do not know the name— have been to their
house — somewhere about 1835. They lived in Hardwick." Among the list of names changed
in Massachusetts, from the years 17SK to 1892, one was Lemuel Newton of Hardwick, who
had his name changed in 1840, to that of Stephen Fleazer Newton. From the above state-
ments, I conclude that it was the son of Silas Newton 9 , 2d, who had his name thus changed,
at the time he would reach his majority.

John Newton 6 was a merchant, residing in Monson, Mass. He, with his older
brothers, Lucius F. and Hiram, located very near the old homestead of their
father, making a little colony there of families and children, and called "New-
ton Corner."

"His store was a gathering place for the neighbors in that vicinity. A great
deal of visiting was done among the men, by dropping in and chatting the news
in Newton's store. There were eleven cousins of us in the group and we had
very lively times. We held debates, discussions, edited a paper, and were quite
literary in our tastes. We attended the Academy in the town and had the repu-
tation of being good scholars, and all of us were especially good writers; but
never a Dr. or a Rev. among us — good business ability. All of the men con-
nected with these families have been good business men."

there March 6, 1787, and died there October 19. 1865. P. R. [Oct. 29, T. R.]

He married at Barnard, Vt., February 22, 1813, Myra Dean, oldest daughter
and third child of Robert and Eunice (Billings) Dean* of Barnard, Vt., where
9he was born December 23, 1789, and where she died January 30, 1861, aged 71
years. G. S.

Earl Newton, Sr., resided in Barnard, Vt., on the farm taken up by his father,
and there nine children were born to him. All of his sons, except the youngest,
went West at an early clay; but Solon D. has always lived on the old home-
stead, where he now (1912) resides. Earl Newton received the farm by will of
his father, also was made executor of the will. Mr. Newton was a lifelong mem-
ber of the Methodist Episcopal Church in Barnard, and for many years, like
his father before him, a steward of it. His wife was also a member of the same
church. He was a much respected member and citizen in the community at
Barnard.

* William Dean 1 of South Chard. Somersetshire, England, did not come to America. His
will, dated July 20, 1634, mentions children : WilUam*, "eldest son," John 2 . Walter 2 , Isaack 2 ,
Thomas 2 , Susan 2 . Eleanor 2 . Marger.ic 2 , Elizabeth 2 , "youngest daughter." This is sufficient
reason for believing that the above William 1 was the father of the brothers John and Walter
Jicini of Taunton, Mass. The will makes plain that the son Walter married Eleanor Cogan
or Coggan, and not Eleanor Strong as was supposed.

Second Eegiment, First Brigade and Fourth Division of the State Militia. His
commission as Captain is dated June 14, 1822, and signed by Richard Skinner,
Governor. In his later years he was always called "Cap'n Earl."

He was a small, wiry man and had considerable local reputation as a wrest-
ler — such was his physical strength.

The Vermont military rolls show that Earl Newton was in the expedition
which marched to Plattsburgh, N. Y., in 1814 — which service would make him
a "Soldier of the War of 1812."
