4823. DANIEL NEWTON 5 (Ezekiel 4 , Sr., Daniel 3 , Daniel 2 , Kichard 1 ), son
of Ezekiel, Sr., and Tirzah (Newton) Newton of Southborough, Mass., was born
there May 20, 1749. Died .

He married Mary Rice, daughter of Jonathan and Ruth (Eames) Rice* of
Marlborough and Framingham, born at Framingham, February 4, 1749-'50.

Daniel and Mary Newton had a daughter born in Southborough in 1772, the
record of which styles him "Jr." After this there is no further mention of him.
Ward says he "went to Vermont." Perhaps he is the Daniel Newton, head of
a household at Putney, Windham County, Vt., mentioned in the United States
Census, 1790. The household all told consisted of two males upward of sixteen
years, three males under sixteen years, and five females. Of this large family I
have the name of one.

Silas Newton 5 is usually mentioned as "of Paxton," where he was a well-to-
do farmer, a man of resources. He was about 42 years of age when he was
appointed administrator to settle his father's estate and gave bond in £1,000.
His name appears on several deeds and papers in connection therewith. After his
mother's death he bought the interest of the other heirs in what were her "Wid-
ows thirds," for the payment of £20 to each of them.

At the taking of the First United States Census, 1790, Silas Newton was head
of a family in Paxton, the other members of it being two males above sixteen
years, two males below sixteen years, and five females.

A grandniece of these daughters of Silas Newton 5 writes, in 1907: "My
mother talked of her aunts as if they were more than ordinary ladies — cultured
and refined."

The will of Silas Newton of Paxton, probated March 5, 1816, an abstract of
