4255. URIAH NEWTON*, SE. (Joseph 3 , Joseph 2 , Eichard 1 ), son of Joseph,

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

20, 1707, and died there May 15, 1759.

He married at Marlborough, November 25, 1729, his relative, Patience Newton
(226), daughter of John and Hannah (Morse) Newton of Marlborough, where
she was born January 17, 1711. Widow Patience Newton died at Southborough,
November 12, 1802, aged 90. C. E.

Uriah Newton, Sr., lived in Marlborough all his life, and there his children
were born, all of whom, except one, were living at date of his death, and all
lived to adult age.

Uriah Newton, "yeoman," seems to have been not only a prosperous farmer,
but, from the mention in the inventory of his estate of implements in other lines
of endeavor, he must have been much more — carpenter's tools, a right in a saw-
mill and lumber, weaving apparatus, shoemaker's stuff — about everything needed
to make the articles then in use are included in this inventory. He died intes-

Hunt 2 , b. 1647 ; d. 1680 ; m. 1667, Mary Stone. One son was Isaac Hunt 3 , b. 1675 ; d.

fourth was

Ebenezer Hunt 4 , b. 1707 ; d. 1776 ; m. Dorothy Whitney in 1734 ; res. in Holliston.
One of their children was

Ebenezer Hunt 5 , Jr. b. April 15, 1735 ; rem. to Paxton ; m. 1755, Deliverence Newton.
See also note to Silas Newton 5 (Timothy*), and Guy S. Newton (Hezekiah 5 , Jr.), where the

tate and his widow administered the estate. All of the papers of administration
are so very interesting, I will be pardoned for giving them so much room.

In the assent of the heirs of Joseph Newton 3 , father of Uriah 4 , both Uriah
and his brother Jazzaniah sign their names for themselves — both bold signatures.

Uriah Newton, Sr., had probably received his portion during the lifetime of
his father, and is given in the will only a slight token of remembrance — "Item.
I give to my Second son Now Living Viz Uriah Newton my Little Iron kittle."

Among the partners in the Land Bank of 1740 we find the name of Uriah
Newton of Marlborough.

Uriah Newton died intestate and his estate was settled by administrators
appointed by the Court. The papers in the case are many, but all will be inter-
esting to his posterity, and are therefore given here. All of the papers were
carefully written, and exact copies of the originals are given. The ten docu-
ments are:

No. 1. Bond of Administratrix, £500. Widow Patience Newton appointed.

No. 2. Certificate of Oath of Appraisers (traced).

No. 3. Inventory, June 25, 1759 — a four-page document.

No. 4. Additional inventory, September 29, 1760.

No. 5. Warrant for assessment of dower and distribution of real estate.
