NEWTON GENEALOGY



Major Larkin Newton resided in Southborough, Mass.; all of his children
were born there. I do not know what the title major indicated, but probably of
a militia company of Southborough. He was a prominent man in Southborough.

He was assistant to Col. Jonas Ball, director of the procession at the centen-
nial celebration of Southborough in 1827 — "Major Larkin Newton." His father
and uncle were on the committee of arrangements for the same celebration, when
all had a great time.

His estate was administered at Southborough, 1840, without a will. Case in
Probate, No. 43,272.

(Coburn) Stewart of Jeffreys, N. H., where she was born March 10, 1795. She

Mr. Newton lived a goodly number of years in his native town, and his chil-
dren were born there. Between 1830 and 1850 he moved to Sturbridge, Mass.
His name appears on an old map of Sturbridge, in a list of the business men
of that town, about 1856. "Farmer and Dairyman." A few of his last years he
resided in Charlton, Mass.

settled some time before 1845 in Framingham or a near-by town. The historian
of Framingham says that he and his brother Edward were noted stone-layers.
