wick, Mass., August 29, 1839, and died in New Salem. Mass., February 19, 1890,

He married (3) in North Dana, Mass., July 26, 1891, Mrs. Estella Jane (Dean)

Mr. Newton has resided during his married life in Greenwich, North Dana
and New Salem, Mass. His home is yet in New Salem. Of his life and work
Mr. Newton writes : "I wanted a blacksmith's trade ; my father would not suffer
it. I told him that was the only trade I wanted; but he would not let me go
while I was a minor, and said I had no ingenuity whatever, and kept me on the
farm. When I was 21 I felt discouraged. I told them, then, that if I ever
had any boys and they wanted a trade they should have it. I stopped around
home a few years; got married; my wife had friends in Massachusetts and we
moved to Greenwich, Mass., where I worked at farming five or six years — the
last year doing some carpenter work. Hearing of a shop in North Dana, Mass.,
where they made piano legs, employing about fifty hands, I went there and worked
on the job three years. The dust affected me so that. I began to cough and the
doctor said I must leave the shop. I left it for a year — went back for ten months,
then left it and staid out. I then bought a stage line from North Dana to Barre,
a distance of twelve miles. I ran this line between nine and ten years, carried
the II. S. Mail, and did well in the business; bought a small farm and left the
stage business. About a mile from me a creamery was started at Millington.
I took the route of gathering cream three days in the week, which business I
followed for ten years; retired from that and have lived on my place ever since,
sometimes alone, sometimes I have a family with me. I hope I have enough
to carry me through the remaining years of my life."

His P. O. address is North Dana, Mass.

3288. EAEL NEWTON 7 , JE. (Earl 6 , Timothy 5 , Timothy 4 , Josiah\ Moses 2 ,
Eichard 1 ), son of Earl and Myra (Dean) Newton of Barnard, Vt., was born there
November 5, 1819, and died at Sullivan, Wis., , 1911.

He married at Bethany, Genesee County, N. Y., April 27, 1843, Mary Hunting-
ton Brown, daughter of Heman and Maria (Huntington) Brown of Bethany,
N. Y., where she was born December 26, 1822 ; was living in 1912.

Mr. Newton left his native state as a boy of fifteen in 1834, going to Alexander,
Genesee County, N. Y., where his uncle resided, and where he remained eight
years, giving time for the further educating of himself. In 1842 he went to
Palmyra, Jefferson County, Wis., where he became a farmer. He returned to
New York to be married in 1843 and bring home his wife. Their first four chil-
dren were born at Palmyra. In 1853 the gold craze took many men from that
neighborhood to California and among them went Mr. Newton. He returned in
1856, the family having remained on the farm during his absence. In 1857 he
removed with his family to his farm at Sullivan, Jefferson County, Wis., where
his last two children were born. He was a successful farmer. In 1877 he was
elected sheriff for the county for the term of two years and served as such, tak-
ing up the work of farmer after the term of sheriff expired. He built a fine
two-story brick farm-house in place of the log-house of earlier days, remaining
on the farm until March 1, 1894, when he sold the place and removed to the vil-
lage of Sullivan, Wis., where, with his wife and youngest daughter, he spent his
last years.

members of any church, the family attended the Methodist Episcopal Church at
Rome, Wis., as opportunity offered.

ests in the bringing up of ber family and to get a home, yet leading a quiet,
peaceful life. Her daughter says of her in 1908 : "She was ever as she is to-day,
the beautiful mother" — now grand- and great-grandmother, much beloved. The,
married life together of Mr. and Mrs. Newton covered 68 years.

self-sacrificing devotion that only an unmarried child can bestow.
