first wife of Archelaus Felton, above. Dr. Hunter moved to Henniker.
N. H. He became a physician and settled there on the place known as
the "Hunter place." about the beginning of the Revolution; after a
while moved back to Marlborough. Mass.. for a short time; returned to
Henniker, N. H, where he died June 29, 1793. The records are obscure
concerning his family. We can only guess who his children were — if there
were any. Since others have guessed, I will take mine — that is : I think
the historian of Henniker has mistaken some of the sou's children for the
father's children. The dates of marriage, and the dates of birth in
Marlborough, Mass., would seem to make it so. I think the following
may, some of them, be the children of Dr.- Edward Hunter and wife
Thankful, namely :

uncle John. b. 1747) : m. (1) Susan Witt, April 8, 1810. ["He m. (2)

FIFTH GENERATION AND CHILDREN

4262. JONAH or JONAS NEWTON 5 (Jazzaniah 4 , Joseph 3 , Joseph 2 , Rich-
ard 1 ), son of Jazzaniah and Deliverence (Newton) Newton of Marlborough, Rut-
land and Paxton, Mass., was born at Marlborough, March 24, 1730, and died at
Leicester, Mass., March 12, 1810, aged 80.

He married (1) about 1750, Rebecca , who probably died in Paxton.

She was the mother of five daughters.

He married (2) at Worcester, Mass., May 9, 1803, Mrs. Lydia Johnson, who
became his widow.

Mr. Newton, as a child, moved with his father to Rutland, where he continued
to reside after his first marriage, and where his children were baptized. Later
we find the family in Paxton, where he seems to be his father's right-hand man
on the farm. In 1782 he was executor and residuary legatee of his father's will,

and came into full possession of the estate after the death of his mother. When
he left Paxton and took up a residence in Leicester does not appear; but at the
date of second marriage — 1803 — he was still "of Paxton," and he died at Leices-
ter. I suppose the following to be his service as a soldier of the Revolution:
"Jonas Newton, First Lieut, in Capt. Ralph Earl's 17th (Paxton) Co., Col.
Samuel Denny's (1st. Wore. Co.) Regiment, reported commissioned April 5, 1776.

He married at Marlborough, February 10, 1761, Hannah Eager, daughter of
Uriah and Sarah (Brigham) Eager* of Marlborough, where she was born

* William Eager 1 m. Ruth Hill at Maiden, in 1659. He came to Marlborough before

BRANCH OF JOSEPH ( ; :;

He married (2) at Princeton, April 27, L783, Mrs. Joanna (Gleason) Gibbs,
widow of William Gibbs, and daughter of Phinehas and Elizabeth Gleason* of
Framingham and Lancaster, born July 13, 1740. She died at Princeton, "widow
of Uriah Newton," June 28, 1830, aged 90.

Uriah Newton, Jr., was twenty-three years old when his father died intestate.
His mother was made administratrix. In the settlement of the estate, which
amounted to £363-15-7, it appears the son Uriah, Jr., had received from his father
£23-12-6, which sum was not a gift but was to be considered in the inventory.
After the one-third dower for the widow was apportioned, the remaining two-
thirds of the real estate was portioned to Uriah, Jr., and his sister Hannah, he
to pay the other heirs, and this to be accomplished and completed on or before
April, 1762. It would appear that he sold the land for that purpose.

Uriah Newton, Jr., did not remain long at Marlborough after the estate of
his father was closed up. He married there in 1761 ; but in the autumn of 1763
he was in Rutland, and Rutland District (Barre) until after 1766. In 1768 one
child was born at Wilbraham, Mass., although his family may not have lived in
that town. From 1772 until his death, Princeton, Mass., was his home town.
During this period he spent some time at Alstead, N. H, where his sons had
settled.

His name in the John White Genealogy is given "Uriah Eager Newton." I
find it so nowhere else.

Notice that he signs his own name to the guardianship papers of his brother
Jonas — "Uriah Newton."

In the French and Indian War, 1757, in Captain John Weeks' Marlborough
Company are the names of Uriah Newton 5 , Jr.; his father, Uriah Newton 4 ;
brother David 5 , and uncle Micah 4 Newton.

Uriah Newton 5 , Jr., was a soldier of the Revolution — a minute man. His name
appears on the rolls as of "Princeton. Private in Capt. Boaz Moore's Company,
Col. Ephraim Doolittle's regiment, which marched on the Alarm April 19, 1775,
service 11 days." [Mass. Sol. and Sail, of Rev. War, Vol. XI, p. 407.]

The First United States Census, 1790, shows Uriah Newton head of a house-
hold at Princeton, Mass., the other members being one male above sixteen years
and six females.

All of his children, except Ephraim, deceased, are mentioned in his will, an
abstract of which follows :

Zerubbabel Eager 2 , b. 1672 ; d. Jan. 9, 1746-7 ; m. 1698, Hannah Kerlet, dau. of

Continental Army, Feb. 20, 1782, aged 19 years. He was a soldier of the
Revolution. His name occurs, "Ephraim Newton. Account dated at

never married. He was one of the original proprietors of Acworth, N. II.,
going there in 1828. With his brother Joab, he held the homestead, lot
No. 5, range No. 12. The lots seem to have been large and were divided
between many owners. The family impression is that this Joel and his
brother Joab were twins. I find no public record of it.

marriage recorded in Framingham as Sept. 10, 1786 ; this last date prob-

4276. DAVID NEWTON 5 (Uriah 4 , Joseph - , Joseph 2 , Richard 1 ), son of
Uriah and Patience (Newton) Newton of Marlborough, Mass., was born there
March 17, 1737-8.

He married at Leicester, Mass., May 13, 1762, Miriam Smith, daughter of (I
suppose) Abraham and Zerviah (Howe) Smith of Marlborough and Leicester,
Mass. She was born at Leicester, May 4, 1745 [T. R.] or 1741. Her headstone
in Paxton, Mass., bears the following inscription : "In memory of | Mrs. | Miriam
Newton | wife of | Mr. David Newton | who died | Dec. 11, 1837 | aged 96
years." The following is an abstract of her will :

1837. Miriam Newton, Paxton. No. 43329. '

Will. Allowed March 6, 1838. To daughter, Sally Goulding, $100 and furniture;

Residence to be divided between daughter Sally Goulding and Clark Pike; She has other

heirs but gives them nothing ; their names not mentioned ; Appoints Tyler Goddard,

Executor. Bond. $3000.

Nathaniel Lakin and John Partridge, Sureties.

Mr. Newton was "of Rutland," when married. His first two children were
baptized there, and the second is recorded as "dau. of David Newton of Paxton,"
where the family probably resided. When he died and the number of his chil-
dren are facts unknown to me.

4300. JOTHAM NEWTON 5 (Nahum 4 , Joseph 3 , Joseph 2 , Richard 1 ), son of
Nahum and Tabitha (Sanderson) Newton of Leicester, Mass., was born there
February 27, 1751. He died at Brookfield, Mass., December 8, 1817.

He married [int. at Brookfield, March 19, 1774], Sarah Howard, born about
1747. She died his widow, at Brookfield, Mass., October 28, 1824, aged 77.

Jotham Newton settled in Sturbridge, Mass., after his marriage, and lived
there a few years. His first three children were born there. About 1780 he
moved to Brookfield, Mass., where the births of three more children are recorded.
Whether there were others is unknown to me. [I thought perhaps Tilly Newton
might be his son, but have no proof of it.]

In his will (an abstract is given below), Mr. Newton mentions only four
children. The oldest probably died very young, and the youngest we know died
before he did. Thus he would speak of Jotham, Jr., as his oldest son, and
Foster as second son.

Jotham Newton was a soldier of the Revolution. His name appears on several
of the army rolls. The service is as follows : "Jotham Newton. Rutland.
Private in Capt. David Bent's Co., Col. Nathaniel Sparhawk's regiment of
Minute men, marched April 20, 1775, to Cambridge, served six days. Other
service and return dated in Camp at Winter Hill, Oct. 6, 1775. Also, Jotham
Newton, Private in Capt. John Howard's company, Col. Samuel Brewer's regi-
ment. Abstract of allowance from Saratoga home (188 miles). Warrant allowed
March 2, 1777. Also, Jotham Newton on a list of men mustered August 18 — ,
by Thomas Newhall — Worcester County — to serve six months in Capt. Wilson's
company. Col. Keyes regiment."

The First. United States Census, IT'.M), shows no Jotham Newton head of a
household in all the country, although this Jotham was living, had wife and
children and another child was horn in 1791. The census-taker missed him.
He had a farm in Brookfield, Mass., when he died, which he had improved with
the assistance of his son Foster, indicating that he had resided there for some
time. This land he gives by will to son Foster ; the other children probably had
