much from his manuscript, with the understanding that I was to give him due credit for
the same, should I publish. I herewith acknowledge the courtesy. Since he has recently
published in pamphlet form an extended and interesting account of the Barnard pioneer
settlers in much detail, with the Indian raid there on Aug. 9, 1780, and has copyrighted it.
I have omitted here what I should have given, although it was extraneous to my purpose.
[E. N. L.]


Mr. Newton, the son of a farmer, learned the carpenter's trade in his youth.
He worked his way through school and college, and was graduated from Ran-
dolph State Normal School, Randolph, Vt., June, 1884; from Montpelier Semi-
nary, Montpelier, Vt., June, 1890; from Wesleyan University, Middletown,
Conn., June, 1894; licensed a local preacher in the Methodist Episcopal Church
by a quarterly conference held at Barnard, Vt., July 24, 1886; ordained a dea-
con at Bradford, Vt., Vermont Conference, April 22, 1894. At the same session
admitted on trial to conference and stationed at Waterbury, Vt., where he
remained 1894 to 1897; appointed Principal of Montpelier Seminary, Montpelier,
Vt., April, 1898, and served three years; ordained elder at the same conference
in Springfield, Vt. ; appointed Presiding Elder (District Superintendent) by
Bishop Cranston, on the Montpelier District (Vermont) Conference, in April,

Woonsocket, R. I.

For eleven years he was a trustee of Montpelier Seminary, and for four years
trustee of Wesleyan University.

Mrs. Newton, of New England stock, has lived up to the good traditions of the
early days. Naturally of a religious temperament, as a girl she united with the
Congregational Church, and after marriage, the Methodist Church. A devoted
mother and home-maker. She is efficient in the work of the parish — everywhere
a leader, greatly beloved.

116. JOSEPH NEWTON 3 , JR. (Joseph 2 , Richard 1 ), son of Deacon Joseph

Newton of Marlborough and Abigail ( ), his wife, was born at Marlborough,

Mass., May 21, 1673, and died there July 29, 1756.

He married Abigail . She died at Marlborough, January 12, 1748-9.

She was the mother of his nine children and he seems to have had no other wife.

Both Joseph Newton'* and his son Josepb 4 . who <lied before his father did, are
called "Joseph Newton, Jr." The father mentions him in his will, "my fifth
son, Joseph Newton, Deceast."

Joseph Newton 3 was made executor of his father's will, and residuary legatee.
His son, Jazzaniah 4 , having by bequest the lands and dwelling house of Deacon
Joseph, Sr., gets but ten shillings, by will from his own father. It is interest-
ing to notice how the fathers of those days provided before death for their chil-
dren, and at the last by their wills balanced up the portions.

In the deed given by himself and his sisters in settlement of his father's estate,
he calls himself "yeoman" and "JunV

The will of Joseph Newton 3 , Jr., which follows, is a much-worn document and
pasted together — it could not be traced. It has four pages 7| x 32^ inches. Page

one, evidently sent by messenger as no postmark appears. Page 4, the docket-

suppose, is one of the Ipswich Fosters, descendants of Reginald Foster
from England 1038. She is mentioned in her father's will, and given
bequests. Without the will, I had thought she was the Bathsheba who
married, Jan. 23, 1871-22, in Marlborough, John Crosby. Unless his
name is an error, that could not have been; for there was an unnamed
child of Jonathan Foster baptized in the church at Marlborough, April 15,
1722. No other mention of the family there.

4253. JAAZANIAH NEWTON" 4 (Joseph 3 , Joseph 2 , Richard 1 ), son of Joseph,

Jr., and Abigail ( ) Newton of Marlborough, Mass., was born there May 1,

1702, and died at Paxton, Mass., between the making of his will, March 17, 1773,
and the probating of it April 2, 1780.

He married at Marlborough, January 5, 1725-26, Deliverence Newton (223),
daughter of John 3 and Hannah (Morse) Newton of Marlborough, where she was
born January 1, 1705. She died, probably, in Paxton. She was living there in

Jazzaniah Newton lived in Marlborough until after his first four children were
born. The others were born in Rutland.

By the will of his grandfather, Deacon Joseph Newton 2 , he received the home-
stead and all remaining lands of his grandfather, on condition that he take
care of the widow, as specified. This trust I suppose he fulfilled. Prom his
father's will he received ten shillings.

Mr. Newton moved from Marlborough between 1736 and 1740 and was in Rut-
land from 1740 till 1745, and perhaps longer. In 1765 a part of Rutland was
included in the new town of Paxton, and he may have been set off to Paxton.
Be that as it may, he describes himself as "of Paxton" in his will. He there
mentions only his four older children; the two younger may have died young.
He makes careful provision for his wife and for his son Jazzaniah, who seems
to have been physically, and perhaps mentally, not quite competent.

The estate of Jazzaniah Newton could not have been large at the date of his
death, if w T e consider the small amount of the bond given by his executor. His
estate consisted of farm lands, tools and stock, buildings and money; the money
not available at once but to be distributed within a time limit. His second
son, Jonah, — the name is also Jonas on the records — is given everything after
the death of the mother, who' has a life interest, and is made sole executor of the
will. The following is the list of papers in the case, and the will.
