4407. FOSTEE NEWTON 6 (Jotham 5 , Nahum* Joseph 3 , Joseph 2 , Richard 1 ),
sou of Jotham and Sarah (Howard) Newton of Leicester, Sturbridge and Brook-
field, Mass., was born at Brookfield, December 10, 1782, and died there, ,

1862(?)

He married at Sturbridge, Mass., May 27, 1802, Damaris Rockwood.

He married (2), then of Sturbridge, at Brookfield, November 17, 1805, Betsey
Stoddard (twin), daughter of Samuel and Elizabeth ( ) Stoddard of Brook-

Foster Newton lived in Sturbridge, apparently, from the time of his first
marriage until between 1810 and 1812.

His first three children by second marriage were born there; the last seven
were born at Brookfield, where he then resided, and continued to reside until his
death. He died intestate and his estate was administered at Brookfield in 1862.

He married at Rutland, Mass., November 4, 1804, Delia Estabrook of Paxton,
who was born November 12, 1780, and died at Marlborough. She is doubtless
a descendant of Deacon Joseph Estabrook 2 (Rev. Joseph 1 ) of Lexington, but I
have not the data showing the degree.*

Silas Newton at death is styled "Capt." He was a farmer.

He removed to and settled in Marlborough before his marriage, being then
"of Marlborough." His children were all born there, and nearly all of them
resided there permanently. July 5, 1818, he was a member of the Union Con-
gregational Church of Marlborough.
