He married Miriam Newton (2216), daughter of Ezra and Elizabeth (Hager)
Newton of Southborough, where she was born October 20, 1764. She died at
Marlborough, N. H, September 22, 1852, aged nearly 88 years. Mrs. Newton
kept a diary for more than sixty years, in which she recorded important events : —
weather, the births, marriages and deaths of the townspeople, and other matters.
The diary was used by the compiler of the history of the town of Marlborough,
N. H, who considered it of great value to him. It was then in the possession
of her daughter, Miss Nancy Newton. 1881.

March 24, 1834, among the subscribers to the fund for repairing the old meet-
ing-house at Marlborough, N. H., are Mrs. Miriam Newton and Miss Nancy New-
ton, each $2.00. Also, December 9, 1834, subscribers to purchase a bell for said
meeting-house, Mrs. Miriam Newton $1.00, Nancy Newton fifty cents. Mrs.
Newton was a capable, energetic, industrious woman — a true helpmeet to her
husband in making a home in a new land. She worked at dressmaking and mil-
linery, spinning and weaving, for pay; which helped to supply many needs in
those early years. Her keeping of the diary through all those years shows that
she had a mind that could rise above the mere drudgery of the work, and take
pleasure in it. She is an ancestress to be proud of.

Luther Newton, with his family, came to Marlborough, N. H, in May, 1788.
Where he lived the first years after his marriage, and where the two oldest chil-
dren were born, does not appear. Arriving in Marlborough, N. H, they lived
for a short time on the farm owned in 1881 by Hon. R. S. Frost, and purchased
a lot of land now known as the "Newton Meadows." Here he erected a house
built of logs, which were hewn on the inside — a much better house than most
of the log houses of that day. Mr. Newton was a very industrious man, and,
possessing a strong constitution and great powers of endurance, was able to per-
form more labor than most men. His land was poor. He was obliged to work
out by the day to procure grain and other necessaries to support his family, and
often on his return home would make shingles until a late hour at night. He
soon purchased another tract of land, where he leveled the forest and built a
house, into which he moved in 1797. This house was owned by George Thatcher,
in 1881. While he was making shingles and raising stock to pay for his land,
Mrs. Newton was also busy as above stated.

Mr. Newton appears as head of a family in Marlborough, N. H., at the tak-
ing of the First United States Census, 1790, the other members being one male
under sixteen years, and two females. He was a voter in the town in 1794, and
seems to have been an active citizen in town affaire. September 22, 1795, a num-
ber of the citizens met and formed the "Marlborough Social Library," shares
$2.00 each. At a subsequent meeting eighty-four persons became members;
among them were Luther, Simeon and Calvin Newton and Luke Blodgett.

Three other children were born to them after 1788 ; I suppose born at Marl-
borough, N. H.

The following article from the will of Capt. Seth Newton : "Item. — I give to
my son Luther Newton fifty-five dollars, to be paid by my said Executrix in three
years after my decease, to be on interest after the expiration of the said three
years if not then paid, which, with what he has already had, is his full share of
my estate."

He married at Holliston, Mass., February 21, 1792, "Sally" or Sarah Fiske,
daughter of Ensign David and Sarah (Bullard) Fiske:}: of Holliston, where she
was born December 17, 1771. She died in Marlborough, N. H, October 18, 1854,
aged 83 years. She brought up the two daughters of her own daughter, who died
at the birth of the younger one. "She was a noble woman. So wonderfully kind,
and thoughtful of others."

Simeon Newton is styled "Jr.," probably to distinguish him from his uncle,
Simeon Newton, who also was married at, and lived in, Holliston.

•Jonathan Blodgett (not traced), b. 1755; d. in 1851, aged 96; was a soldier of the
Revolution. He entered the service when 20 years of age ; was at the battle of Bennington
and at Ticonderoga. About 1794 he came to Marlborough, N. H., having previously lived in
Harvard, Mass., and Jaffreys, N. H. He m. (1) (pub. in Jaffrey) Susan Tenney, who died

% Ensign David Fiske 9 (John 8 ), b. April 16, 1732; d. Dec. 23, 1817; res. Holliston, Mass.,
his native town. The Fiske Genealogy says of him : "David Fiske, son of John and Abigail
Leland Babcock . . . was a noted descendant from many noted English families, viz. :
Fiskes. Lelands and Babcocks ; the latter name being among those old, noted and true Pil-
grims who sailed from Holland in the ship Anne, and came to this country to worship God
according to the dictates of their own consciences. Mr. Fiske was a man of great energy
of character ; faithful to the trusts confided to him ; an active business man ; a large and
successful farmer ; owner of large tracts of land in this vicinity." He served in the Colonial
wars, through New York state, capturing forts and dispersing enemies, 1758, as recorded in
a daily diary that he kept. Returning to his home he took up his farm work ; and rear-
ing and educating a large family, he gave each of his sons a farm as they became of age.
except the youngest, who chose a college course and was graduated at Harvard as M.D..
besides goodly sums of money to all his children at their majority. He married Sarah Bul-
lard of East Medway. Mass. (dan. of John), who died in 1830. Their children were: John,
1760; Nathan, 1761; David, 1763; Levi, 1765; Nathaniel, 1707; Salty, b. Dec. 17, 1771;
Oad. 1774: Keren, 1770: Timothy, 1778 (M.D.) ; Aner, 1780.

Nathaniel 4 , William 3 , Robert 2 , to Simon 1 , the immigrant to America, and Simon, Wil-
liam, Symond in England.



5G4 NEWTON GENEALOGY

Mr. Newton continued in Holliston for a year or so after marriage, then
removed to Marlborough, N. H., where he settled. He lived "for a short time
in a house that formerly stood near the residence of the late George Harvey."
He afterward purchased the farm now (1881) owned by George A. Porter, where
he resided until 1818 or 1819, when he sold the farm and moved to Templeton,
Mass., where he died.

His oldest child was born at Holliston. All of the others were born at Marl-
borough, N. H.

He was one of the members of the "Marlborough Social Library at its forma-
tion in 1795."

At a meeting of the "North Westerly School Squadron," April 5, 1797, to
choose officers, Jonathan Frost, Simeon Newton and Kimber Harvey were chosen
School Committee.

The mention of him in his father's will is as follows: "Item. — I give and
bequeathe to my Son Simeon Newton one hundred dollars to be paid to him
by my said Executrix in two years after my decease, if not then paid to be on
Interest till paid, which with what he already has is his full Share of my Estate."
His father died in 1807.

He left no will and his son Amos Newton was appointed administrator. The
following is an abstract of the papers in the case. George Newton, one of the
sureties, is probably the son of Peter Newton 5 , Jr., of Templeton.

and sister.]

Peter Newton, Jr., while but a youth of sixteen must needs follow the example
of his father and go out to be a soldier of the Revolution. His name appears
on the rolls : "Peter Newton, Jr. Private, Capt. Phineas Walker's Company of
detached guards, Seventh Worcester County regiment, entered service October
3, 1779, discharged October 20, 1779. Stationed at Rutland."

Mr. Newton resided in Templeton — so his descendants affirm. The town rec-
ords show only the birth of his youngest child, and the church records give the
baptism of the first five. The full family record of births is given by the
family.

Mr. Newton was a farmer in Templeton. He seems to have settled there
immediately after his marriage, for the First United States Census, 1790, shows
Peter Newton head of a family at Templeton, which consisted, besides himself,
