"Mr. Newton was twice married. His first wife was Elizabeth C. Sheldon of East
Rupert, in the Green Mountains of Vermont. Two children of this marriage are now
living, the third died about three years since. These children were at an early age left
motherless by the death of Mrs. Newton in March 1852.

"In 1SG0 Mr. Newton again married. His wife, a daughter of tin- late James Chappell
of this city, lived less than four years after (heir marriage, and dying, left one child, a
daughter and a namesake.

"As a lawyer, Mr. Newton was careful, painstaking, and laborious. He made the
interests of his clients wholly his own, seldom did they suffer at his hands. For the
first year of his practice he confined himself mostly to office business and seldom appeared
as a pleader in Court. But when he began to study criminal law he soon distinguished
himself in that department, and afterwards proved himself both in civil and criminal
cases a ready, powerful and successful advocate. His business and his reputation
steadily increased until he ranked among the foremost practitioners in this section of the
State, and gained for himself an enviable position at the Bar and in the community."

Mr. and Mrs. Newton lived a few years after marriage in Greenfield, Mass.,
where their two children were born. They both were members of the Second
Congregational Church there; he on profession in 1858 and she by letter in
1863. Later they removed to Holyoke, Mass., which thereafter became their place
of residence.

Mr. Newton was a man of large business ability, and with his brothers under-
took large enterprises, which they carried through with satisfying results. These
brothers were all prominent men in the affairs of Holyoke and Massachusetts.

A relative of his writes thus of him : "He was one of the most attractive
personalities I ever knew; bright, cheerful, sympathetic, generous, and of great
business ability."

To him I am indebted for this record of father's posterity. The gathering of
the data covered a full year of effort. He took much interest in my endeavor
for the family, and I regret that he cannot enjoy the completed work.
