3196. LUMAS HEMINWAY NEWTON 7 (Josiah 6 , Alvan 5 , Paul 4 , Josiah 3 ,
Moses 2 , Richard 1 ), son of Josiah and Lydia (Ball) Newton of St. Albans, Vt.,
was born there July 3, 1812, and died at Pontiac, Mich., July 26, 1881. Burial
and monument in Oak Hill Cemetery, Pontiac, Mich.

He married at Rochester, Oakland Co., Mich., April 28, 1850, by Rev. Mr.
Hill, Sarah Ann Averill, daughter of Samuel and Elizabeth (Fowler) Averill
of Rochester, N. Y., where she was born September 15, 1827. She died October
26, 1898, at Pontiac, Mich. Burial there.

Mr. Newton was educated in the public schools of St. Albans, Vt., the St.
Albans Academy and the Burlington College. Becoming of age, he spent a
season on Lake Erie. At the age of twenty-two years he went to New Orleans,
La., and shipped on a merchant vessel to the West Indies and thence to Liver-
pool, England. He seems to have liked the sea, and shipped from Liverpool to
the East Indies and various South American ports, after which he returned
to Massachusetts. In a short time he shipped again, from New Bedford, Mass.,
on a whaling expedition which took him into the south seas, around Cape Horn
and to the Islands of the Pacific Ocean, which he visited, being absent two years.
He made a second voyage which lasted four years. He had shipped in the first
place as ship carpenter. He evidently made good use of his spare time to study
navigation as well as to become familiar with the duties of a seaman, for at
the last of his sailing we find him Captain of the ship Massachusetts.

In 1847 he accompanied a friend to Michigan and established the first flour
mills at Lakcville, Thoruville and Rochester. Being pleased with the prospects
in Michigan he decided to settle there. Three years after his arrival he bought
a section of land in Pontiac township and became a farmer. Being an excellent
manager he was a successful one. A Republican in politics, he was one of the
leaders for the Union during the Civil War. As a man he was moral and upright
in every respect. He gave liberally to all charitable purposes, and was ever ready
to help a friend in need. Socially he was pleasing and graceful in his manners
and an agreeable companion. A man of refined tastes — a father much beloved.
I have seen a picture of him. He had the head and face of a typical philanthro-
pist.

The parents and grandparents of his wife were natives of Massachusetts. Her
pedigree was not given to me.

"There were twelve children born to them," ten of whom became adults. The
names of eleven were sent to me; also the names of fourteen grandchildren,



with no dates of any kind.
