his ribs. The following spring an attack of congestion of the lungs reduced
his excess of flesh somewhat; but his spirit was as firm to meet and overcome
obstacles as ever.

The deaths of his two daughters from cancer was a great distress to him. And
the care of the two grandchildren,, orphans, he met bravely, when a man over
80 years old should have been permitted to lay down all cares.

THIRD GENERATION AND CHILDREN

153. DANIEL NEWTON 3 , JR. (Daniel 2 , Richard 1 ), son of Daniel, Sr., and
Susanna (Morse) Newton of Marlborough, Mass., where he was born May 29,
1681. He probably died in the latter part of 1747, or the beginning of the year
1748. I have no record of his death.

He married about 1704, Sarah , who was the mother of his eight chil-
dren. I find no record of this marriage; neither a record of her death; but
she probably died about 1740, or before.

He married (2) at Southborough, November 26, 1741, Mrs. Mary Mathis.
[Mathis is the same as Mathews.] She died at Southborough, June 29, 1745,
"2nd wife of Daniel Newton, Sr." His father being dead, he now has become
"senior," while his son is junior.

Daniel Newton, Jr., lived in Marlborough. All of his children were born there.
In the record of their births he is styled "Jr."

There was no will, and his son Ezekiel was appointed administrator of his
estate on February 8, 1748. An abstract of the papers of administration follows.

He owned land in Framingham, in the sale of which he calls himself a "tan-
ner," and signs his own name, 1723-4.

He received, as a gift from his father, ten acres of land in Marlborough, which
was a part of the grant to Richard Newton, his grandfather, on February 18,
1706. This I suppose was to help settle him after his marriage some two years
before. In this deed he is called "husbandman."

I have not tried to gather all there might be in the Register's office. Just a
paper now and then to prove a point genealogical. See the abstracts of deeds
from Richard 1 and Daniel 2 , Sr., and the one below.

156. ISAAC NEWTON 3 , SK. (Daniel 2 , Kichard 1 ), son of Daniel, Sr., and
Susanna (Morse) Newton of Marlborough, Mass., was born there March 12, 1686,
and died in Southborough, Mass., February 11, 1754.

He married at Boston, Mass., March 20, 1716, Sarah Belknap, daughter of
Ebenezer and Hannah (Ayer) Belknap§ of Haverhill, Mass., born December 23,
1691. It is asserted by the family, as given in a note on page 586 of the History
of Marlborough, N. H., that Capt. "Seth Newton's mother died at the age of
106, and his grandmother at the age of 112."

Isaac Newton, Sr., lived in that part of Marlborough that was set off to South-
borough. The births of his first five children are recorded in the former town
and the last four in the latter town — while they may all have been born in the
same house.

He was among those citizens of Marlborough who petitioned for the organi-
zation of the new town of Southborough, which was incorporated in 1727, and
continued to reside there.

Isaac Newton of Southborough was one of the partners in the Land Bank
scheme of 1740, through which the colonists sought to protect themselves from
the tyranny of Parliament, and which was suppressed after a time.

The will of Isaac Newton, Sr., is dated June 13, 1751, in which he calls him-
self of "Southborough, husbandman.'' He gives to his wife, Sarah, and the
following children : Hezekiah, Seth, Isaac, Simeon, Keziah, Mary, Martha.
He mentions Hezekiah as his "eldest son," and Simeon as his "fourth son,"
Keziah as "eldest daughter," and daughters Mary Graves and Martha Gibbs,
and makes his son Seth the executor of the will. The following intention from
the will: "As to my eldest son, Hezekiah Newton, I have given him already
great part of his portion, but I will give, grant to him, his heirs and assigns,
twenty pounds to be paid seven years after my decease." As Isaac himself did
not die until three years after he made his will, poor Hezekiah had to wait ten
years for his £20.

Westborough, Mass., June 2, 1782, in his 07th year. They lived first in
Southborough. Seven children were born there. Some time between 1752
and 1750 they removed to, or were set off to, Westborough, where their
last two children were born, and where the seventh died. Children were :

4729. v. Martha 4 , b. July 20, 1720. She is mentioned in her father's will as Martha

Gibbs. She married at Southborough, May 28, 1750, James Gibbs, who

I suppose was son of Jonathan and Lydia ( ) Gibbs* of Fram-

ingham and Hopkinton. and born at Framingham, May 28, 1720. They
had one child born in Southborough and probably moved away soon, as I
can find no further mention of the family. Child was :

4730. vi. Margaret 4 , b. Aug. 30, 1729. She is not mentioned in her father's will, and

she could be except this couple.
