504 NEWTON GENEALOGY

157. EPHEAIM NEWTON 3 (Daniel 2 , Kichard 1 ), son of Daniel, Sr., and
Susanna (Morse) Newton of Marlborough, Mass., was born there February 12,
1689, and died at Leicester, Mass., about the latter part of February, 1761.

He married at Marlborough, Mass., May 29, 1710 [1711 T. R..], Christian Rip-
ley, daughter of George and Sarah ( ) Ripley* of Marlborough, where she

was born February 27, 1689. She was living May 11, 1762, when as a widow
from Lancaster she was warned from Rutland. The warrant was not returned
to the Court. Perhaps she was the Widow Newton who died in Boylston,
October 2, 1780.

Ephraim Newton lived in Marlborough, in the part that was set off to South-
borough. Thus his first seven children were born at Marlborough and the next
two at Southborough. It would appear that about the beginning of 1730 he
moved to Leicester, where he settled and lived the remainder of his life, and
where his youngest child was born. Of his large family only one son became
adult.

The following documents from the Probate Court explain themselves. The old
people probably lived by themselves with their unmarried daughter, Mary, wbose
will shows she had died a short time before her father died of smallpox. The
queer spelling of Mr. William Martin in his account for service is not so bad
after all, for those times — and the account is interesting.

After reading the papers in administration of his estate, it will be seen that
the family of Ephraim Newton were in a bad way, with three of them down with
smallpox, at the time of his death. What, with the amount of "Rum and
Shugor" consumed and the numerous "tending on yow" by the "several
persons for nursing," one can imagine the poor widow Christian was not in con-
dition to undertake the settlement of the bills. There seems to have been no real
estate.

Boston sold lands to Thomas Lincoln. George Ripley, by wife Sarah, had children, born at

158. ABKAHAM NEWTON 3 (Daniel 2 , Richard 1 ), son of Daniel and
Susanna (Morse) Newton of Marlborough, Mass., was born there, March 2, 1691,
and died at Holden, Mass., before May 13, 1742.

He married at Marlborough, October 20, 1709, Rachel Newton (190), daugh-
ter of John and Hannah (Morse) Newton of Marlborough, where she was born
May 17, 1694. She died, probably, in Sunderland, Mass. May 13, 1742, she was
appointed administratrix of her husband's estate, at which time she would be
58 years old. You will notice that two of Mr. Newton's nieces had settled in
Sunderland; also that his son had married Sarah Graves. These facts lead me
to think this is the "Widow Rachel Newton," who married, April 8, 1754, as his
second wife, Noah Graves* (Samuel 3 , John 2 , Thomas 1 , from England), born
1695 ; died 1773, one of the first settlers of Sunderland.

Mr. Newton resided in, and his lands were in, that part of Marlborough that
was set off to Southborough. Thus the records show the first three children to
have been born at Marlborough, the fourth and sixth to have been baptized there.
The fifth and last three were born at Southborough.

Mr. Newton bought land in Holden and removed to that town to reside between
1735 and 1742, the date of his death. Moses Leonard, one of the sureties in the
administration of his estate, had married Mercy Newton 3 , cousin of Abraham 3 ,
and owned lands in Rutland.

The following abstract of the administration of his estate is interesting, show-

Sr., owned lands also in Berwick, Maine, which were transferred by deed, in 1735, to Sam-

510 NEWTON GENEALOGY

Mr. Newton lived in Marlborough-Southborough, Mass. His sons Lemuel and
Samuel, Jr., were born at Marlborough. The record of his family is imperfect,
and there may have been other children.

He and his brother Nathaniel bought from their father, Daniel Newton, Sr.,
all the "lands I am now possessed of," interest in Gristmill, personal property,
etc., jointly, giving in consideration, money and bonds. See the deeds given

161. NATHANIEL NEWTON 3 (Daniel 2 , Eichard 1 ), son of Daniel and
Susanna (Morse) Newton of Marlborough, Mass., was born there September 4,
1697, and died at Southborough, Mass., June 14, 1749.

He married at Marlborough, May 18 or 23, 1720, Abigail Tozer, twin daughter

of Simon and Mary ( ) Tozer of Weston, Mass., where she was born July

26, 1701. She and their oldest son, Richard Newton, were appointed adminis-
trators of Nathaniel Newton's estate in 1749. When she died, I have not found.
Her sister married Samuel Newton 3 , brother of her husband [which see]. Mr.
Newton apparently lived in that part of Marlborough that was set off to South-
borough, thus his three eldest children were born at Marlborough and all the
others at Southborough.

On October 17, 1722, their father, Daniel Newton, Sr., in two deeds, conveyed
to his two sons, Nathaniel and Samuel Newton, jointly, all his personal estate;
cattle, horses, sheep and swine; all tools for husbandry and utensils for house-
keeping; all lands and grants from the township of Marlborough; all his inter-
est in the gristmill at Stony Brook. This, "in Consideration of a valuable sum
of money," and another "Consideration of a valuable sum of money and bonds
for my subsistance." See the abstract of deeds given under Daniel Newton,
Sr. 2 . Thus it would seem that the brothers came into possession of their father's
homestead. At his death, Nathaniel Newton had a one-fourth interest in the
gristmill. An abstract of the administration of the estate of Nathaniel Newton
of Southborough is here given :
