beside her husband.

Silas Newton resided in Paxton before, and for fifteen or sixteen years after,
his marriage; then at the request of his wife's father, who was a man of means
and a large land owner, and who gave them a farm in West Boylston, he moved
with his family to that place. A farmer. The first six of his children were born
in Paxton, the last three were born at West Boylston.

As a soldier in the War of 1812, he was the first Captain of Militia in West
Boylston — hence the title.

The large tract of land which was the Newton homestead in West Boylston
remained in the family until taken in by the "Metropolitan Water Board " of
Boston, to be used as a part of the water supply system.

His estate was settled by will in 1836, at West Boylston. Case in Probate

aged 60. She m. at West Boylston, Mass., July 17 or 25, 1817, David
Wait, a blacksmith, son of David and Abigail (Bingham) Wait of Ster-
ling, Mass.. [where I suppose] he was born Aug. 5, 1796. He served three
months at Fort Warren, a soldier of the War of 1S12, and received a
pension for that service, late in life ; representative in 1850. They
resided in West Boylston, where all of the children were born, and later
moved to Oxford. Mass., onto, a farm, where he died June 12, 1881.
aged 84. After the death of his wife he married, (2) Oct. 17, 1855,
Mrs. Zilpah (Bruce) Knowlton, widow of Jason Knowlton of Grafton,
and daughter of John Bruce of West Boylston. She died at Oxford.
Children, all by first wife, were :

Both living in 1909.

Mary Beamax, "wife of Ezery Esq.," who d. June 6, 1813, aged 62, G. S., I suppose to
have been a second wife of Maj. Ezra. One of his descendants writes : "My gt. gr. father,
Maj. Ezra Beaman, lived in W. Boylston and died in 1811. He kept what was known as the
Old Beaman Tavern. He was very wealthy and loved money. When my gr. father became
interested in gr. mother, her father opposed the match ; but she told him he had made one
(1. e. match) in the family [her sister's] that proved very unhappy and she proposed to make
this match herself — and she did. The objection to gr. father was, that he was not rich. The
Major was so angry he did not visit her until after her sixth child was born, when he came
to them in Paxton and told her if she would come back to W. Boylston, he would give her the
farm. So they went back and the farm became 'The Old Homestead,' where gr. father and
gr. mother died."

* Joseph Lawrence ( ) of Brunswick, Maine, was a soldier of the Revolution. He

served several enlistments, covering the time from 1776 to 1779. His name appears on the
several rolls of the companies and regiments as will be seen in abstracts of service of the
Massachusetts regiments, page 588. He engaged for the town of Brunswick, Maine ; was at
the battle of Bunker Hill ; at Valley Forge, 1777 and 1778 ; at West Point and other import-
ant places ; was reported sick at Bethlehem, where it is supposed he died, there being no
further account of him. He married Abigail Brown of Brunswick, Maine. One of their

5112. DEACON WINDSOR NEWTON (Silas 5 , Hezekiah 4 , Isaac 3 , Daniel 2 ,
Richard 1 ), son of Silas and Eunice (Brighain) Newton of Marlborough, Lei-
cester, Rutland and Paxton, Mass., was born at Paxton, November 18, 1771, and
died there March 8, 1823, in his 53d year. Burial at Paxton.

He married at Brattleboro, Vt., July 3, 1799, Mary (called Polly) Dickerman,
daughter of Dr. Lemuel and Lucinda (Anns) Dickerman* of Brattleboro, Vt.,
where she was born January 4, 1781. She died at Paxton, Mass., January 29,
1823, aged 42. Burial at Paxton.

Deacon Windsor Newton lived in Paxton. His children were born there. It
would seem that he always lived in the home of his birth; for, according to the
statements of the family, he was living with his father in 1800, and the home
became his in 1816. He was made executor of the will of his father, and was so
appointed by the Court on March 5, 1816, giving bonds in $20,000. His father's
will gives "To my son Winsor Newton all real estate in Paxton & Rutland and
all other land, and the residue of the personal." With this start he seems to
have been a successful farmer. He built the large house in Paxton, which is
still in good repair and bears witness to the solid carpentry in use at that time
and the stone underpinning and door stones of solid masonry. He had planned
to have a gay house-party before the rooms were partitioned off; but instead he
invited Elder Paul, a colored pioneer Baptist preacher from Boston, to come
and preach. The house was crowded, and the sermon seems to have made such
an impression upon Mr. Newton and many others who heard it, that the event
was the turning point in their religious lives. Later, Elder Paul baptized both

•Dr. Lemuel Dickerman (M.D.). b. Oct. 18, 1751; d. at Brattleborough, Vt., Oct. 8, 1832,
aged 81 ; m. at Brattleborough, Vt., March 17, 1779, Lucinda Arms, who d. Oct., 1732.
[She was, perhaps, dau. of Maj. John Arms of Brattleborough, Vt., who was commissioned to
the regiment of foot in Col. Thomas Chandler's regiment, Jan. 20, 17G6. I do not know.] Dr.
Lemuel Dickerman was the first established physician in the town of Brattleborough, Vt. He
had a successful career ; wide practice, and at the same time carried on a large farm in the
east village, situated three miles northwest from Brattleborough, Vt. His grave is in the
old cemetery. Monument. His son, Dr. John L. Dickerman, was an established physician in
Brattleborough about forty years, and his sons, William and Lemuel, are members of the same
profession, in eastern Massachusetts.

Mr. and Mrs. Newton, and although residents of Paxton they became mem-
bers of the Baptist Church in Holden, and he a deacon of that church for many-
years.

In the winter of 1822 an epidemic of typhus fever came into the family, nearly
every member being seriously affected; while the others recovered, both he and
his wife were victims of the disease.

He left no will. The Probate Court files show the administration of the
estate of Windsor Newton of Paxton to be No. 43,472. 1823.

The "Dickerman Ancestry," 1891, p. 56, gives five children of Windsor New-
ton and Polly Dickerman, namely: "Alexis, Dickerman, Silas, William, Polly."
The members of his family with whom I have had correspondence know noth-
ing of Alexis and Polly. They may, however, appear in the Paxton records.
I have no copies of those records.
