4301. NAHUM NEWTON 5 , JR. [I suppose to be the son of Nahum 4
(Joseph 3 , Joseph 2 , Richard 1 ) and Tabitha (Sanderson) Newton of Leicester,

Mass.] married Anna . Where and when and the record of it I have not

learned, nor where they lived when their four children were born. But certain
it is that, in 1778, Nahum Newton, wife Anna, with four or five children from
Southborough, Mass., were warned from Northborough, Mass., notice given to
the selectmen by Deacon Paul Newton. The selectmen made no haste in the
matter, for the warrant was not returned to the court until September 9, 1790,
by which time he had evidently obtained citizenship, for we find him there again
later — that is to say, I suppose him to be the same man. Neither his own death,
nor the death of Anna, his wife, are recorded in Northborough or nearby towns ;
but we find that Nahum Newton married at Marlborough, May 6, 1778 — (notice
that it is the year he came to Northborough and was "warned") — Damaris
Brigham, daughter of Noah and Miriam (Allen) Brigham* of Marlborough,
where she was born April 24, 1759. She had one child and died his widow, Jan-
uary 31, 1828, aged 70 years, 9 months. Mr. Newton is styled yeoman in the
warning. [See Nathan Newton (Joshua).]

and earlier of Marlborough, Mass.]. They lived in Northborough after
marriage for at least eighteen years, and probably longer — may have both
died there after 1850—1 have not dates of their deaths. Their children,
all born in Northborough, except the oldest, who died there, were :

these children of Sylvester Newton and those of his sister Caty, who married Samuel
Dalrymple, and see also in this connection the other Sylvester Newton who married Sally
Dalrymple, stepdaughter of Caty; and Lucius F., her son, and his marriages — a won-
derful intermarrying all around.]



4327. NAHUM NEWTON 5 (Micah 4 , Joseph 3 , Joseph 2 , Kichard 1 ), son of
Micah and Mary (Howe) Newton of Marlborough, Mass., was born there, Feb-
ruary 12, 1752, a twin with his sister Lucy. He died at Henniker, N. H., March
20, 1816, aged 64.

He married at Marlborough, Mass., January 29, 1777, Mercy Adams* She
died at Henniker, N. H, August 2, 1839.

It interests me to notice the many cases in which, when a man had been a
soldier in the Revolutionary service, he did not settle down in the home town.
His horizon had been enlarged, and he sought out new lands to conquer. Thus
Nahum Newton moved with his family to Henniker, N. H, soon after his mar-
riage and shortly after the incorporation of the town, and settled on land where
his grandson, John A. Newton, was living in 1880. He was the first settler in
that part of the town. His children were all born in Henniker. The First
Census of the United States, 1790, gives his family there, as consisting of him-
self, three males under sixteen years, and four females.

Nahum had received before the death of his father, his portion. Thus Micah
in his will, dated 1795 : "2 ly . My Will is as to my Son Nahum Newton what I
have all ready given him and half of my wearing apparrel and one Dollar to be
his full part and portion of my Estate both Real & Personal ."

Nahum Newton 5 was a soldier of the Revolution. His name is on the rolls
first, as from Marlborough. "Private Capt. Daniel Barns' Company, marched
on alarm April 19, 1775. Newton marched April 27 — service 12 days.

"Also. Private, list of men on picket under Loammi Baldwin, dated May
11, 1775.



* Adams. The History of Henniker, N. H., pg. 440, has the following in regard to families
of this name : They were "some of the earliest settlers and most enterprising. The families
here were descended from Richard Adams, a tailor, who was at Salem, Mass., in 1638, and
in Newbury. Mass., in 1640 ; emigrated from Devonshire, England ; wife was Eleanor, who
died June 12, 1677. ., . .

Capt. Aaron Adams (son of Israel), b. at Rowley, Mass.. 1739; wife Betsey ; settled here
soon after the town was incorporated ; distiller ; Rep. 1788-'92 ; selectman, 1773-'7o, and
1786 ; commissioned Lieut, of 8th Co., 15th Regiment, regular New Hampshire Militia. March
1, 1774 ; died March 14, 1819. His wife died April 27, 1818. Their children, born at
Rowley, Mass., were : Gideon, 1764 ; Moses, 1766 ; William, 1769 ; children born at Henniker,
N. H., were: Stephen, 1774; James, 1774 (twin); Aaron, 1777; George, 1784; Betsey,
1786. It- is very probable that Mercy Adams, who married Nahum Newton, is somehow
related to these people. I suggest it.

A grandson of Nahum Newton 5 (Nahum Newton 7 Wilson) writes: "My
grandfather, Nahum Newton, was a heavy, thick-built man ; about 5 feet 8
inches tall ; broad shouldered ; fair complexion ; sandy hair and nearly red beard ;
large blue eyes; high tempered; of English descent and a powerful worker."

The following story is told of Mary (Howe) Newton, wife of Micah 4 , and
mother of Nahum 5 . Told by Delia 7 Clark. "Three of Mrs. Mary Newton's chil-
dren died near each in time from Jan. 22 to March 4, 1777. She says she can
well remember of hearing her great-grandmother say, that a short time before
their deaths, she saw the trap door to the cellar open and shut three times of
its own accord, and thought that it was a forerunner of the deaths of her three
children."

SIXTH GENERATION AND CHILDREN

4383. JONATHAN NEWTON 6 (Uriah 5 , Uriah 4 , Joseph 3 , Joseph 2 , Richard 1 ),
son of Uriah, Jr., and Hannah (Eager) Newton of Marlborough, Rutland,
Princeton, Mass., and Alstead, N. H., was born at Marlborough, April 27, 1761
[P. R. and T. R.] ; was baptized at Rutland, January 14, 1762 [C. R.], and
died at his home in Alstead, N. H., September 17, 1828, aged 67 years, 4 months,
20 days, P. R. Burial at East Alstead, N. H.

He married at Princeton, Mass., March 22, 1789, Betsey Brigham, daughter of
Stephen and Betsey (Weeks) Brigham* of Marlborough and Princeton, born
at the latter town February 5, 1760 ; died at Alstead, N. H., February 6, 1840,
aged 80.

Jonathan Newton" was a soldier of the Revolution, entering the service at the
age of sixteen years. I suppose boys of that age must follow the example of the
fathers when it comes to a chance to fight and shoot. A part of his service only
is here given. "Jonathan Newton, Private Capt. Mirrick's Company, Col.
Ephraim Sawyer, entered service October 2, 1777, discharged October 18, 1777,
company raised at Bolton and Princeton — other service — the last date being
December 1779, roll dated at Albany — one month, five days at Claverack — nine
days travel home (180 miles)."

Jonathan Newton moved to Alstead, N. H., not long after his marriage. He
was a pioneer there, and the place was formerly called Newton. His residence
was near the adjoining town of Acworth, N. H., and his children made Acworth
their place of residence for a longer or shorter time; but it was at Alstead
that Jonathan Newton always lived, where he died, and where his children were
born. The First United States Census, 1790, records him at Alstead, N. H.,
with his wife — ["1 female," "including heads of familys"].

It is from his Family Bible Record that much of this data is taken. The
Bible is now the property of his grandson Isaac Newton of Alstead, N. H.

4388. JOAB NEWTON 6 (Uriah 5 , Uriah 4 , Joseph 3 , Joseph 2 , Richard 1 ), son
of Uriah, Jr., and Hnanah (Eager) Newton of Rutland and Princeton, Mass.,
was born in Princeton, July 19, 1772, and died in Acworth, N. H.

He married Polly Butterfield, daughter of Benjamin and Polly (Hackleton)
Butterfield* of Acworth, N. H, an original proprietor there. He had Lot No.
15, Range No. 2, and Lots 8 and 9, Range No. 2. Her parents were married
about 1803 and she is mentioned as the oldest child. I have no birthdate.

Joab Newton 6 came to Acworth, N. H, in 1797. He had for his homestead Lot
No. 5, Range No. 12. His brother Joel 6 had the same lot. "The Lots seem to
have been large and divided between many owners."

The names of his twelve children are given, but when and where they were
born does not appear; though probably at Acworth, to which town he probably
came soon after his marriage, and where he settled. Notice the first child
was born 1798, and the United States Census of 1790 does not mention a Joab
Newton as head of a household.
