5248. BAXTEK B[RIGHAM] NEWTON 6 (Baxter 5 , Hezekiah*, Isaac 3 , Dan-
iel 2 , Richard 1 ), son of Deacon Baxter and ( ) Newton of Paxton,

Mass., Rutland and Norwich, Vt., was born [probably at Norwich, Vt.] Septem-
ber 4, 1799. He died at Norwich, Vt., before 1884.

He married (1) at Hartford, Vt., January 27, 1828, "his cousin" Flora New-
ton, daughter of David, Jr., and Elizabeth (Partridge) Newton* of Hartford,
Vt., where she was born February 11, 1807. She died .

He married (2) at Norwich, Vt., Elizabeth Partridge, daughter of Abel and
Alpha (Lewis) Partridge:}: of Norwich, Vt., where she was born September 7 or
8, 1816. She died March 4, 1850.

He married (3) probably at Norwich, Vt., Olive Partridge Wright, daughter
of John and Olive (Partridge) Wright§, a resident of Norwich, Vt.

In 1905, the historian of Norwich, Vt., states: "Mr. Joseph Emerson built
for his residence the house that is now the home of Mrs. Baxter B. Newton."

* David Newton, Jr., a farmer in Hartford, Vt., son of David and Mary (Hazen) Newton
of that place, was b. March 18, 1778, and d. aged 86. He m. (1) Elizabeth Partridge of
Norwich, Vt., who died in 1867. and he m. (2) Sabriel Tracy of Hartford, Vt. His oldest
child was Flora, b. Feb. 11, 1807.

David Newton, the father, I have not been able to trace : but. have given what I have
found of his posterity ; which see. From the statement that the pioneer settlers of Hartford,
Vt., came from Connecticut, principally, he may be from the branch of Rev. Roger Newton 1
or from Thomas Newton 1 of Connecticut, probably the latter.

of ill health.] She was b. in 1796. Had Elizabeth, b. 1816; m. Baxter B. Neicton; Lewis S.,

and with her and seven children (one son remaining in Connecticut to care for the "old folks'")
came to Norwich, Vt., and settled in 1765. He was lieutenant of militia in 1765. Four of
his sons were soldiers of the Revolutionary War.* Children :

•Elisha, b. ; m. 1765, Margaret Murdock, dau of Thomas.

farm. lie had six sons and two daughters. Of these, John, 1>. 1774: in. 1768, Olive Part-
ridge, dau. of Samuel, Br.; and Elizabeth, b. ; m. 1777, Samuel Partridge, Jr., son

of Samuel, Sr.

John Wright and wf. Olive had eleven children. The tenth was Olive Partridge Wright,
b. ; d. June — , 1899, widow of Baxter B. Newton.


He also speaks of her as "Widow of the late Baxter B. Newton." Windsor
County, Vt., Business Directory, 1884, has : "Widow of Baxter B. Newton. Nor-
wich, Vt. Kesident. Home on Main Street." I suppose she died there, June
— 1899.

The towns of Norwich and Hartford, Vt, are nearby towns. So Baxter B.
Newton of Norwich had not far to journey when he courted "his cousin," Flora
Newton, at Hartford. After their marriage in 1828 they settled in West Hart-
ford, Vt., where he kept a store. Among the other necessary articles he also
sold rum, as was the custom at general stores. Among the people who lived
in West Hartford the first half of the century and were in the prime of
manhood are mentioned, among others, the following men whom we are here
concerned with: Baxter B. Newton, Capt. Levi Hazen, Dr. David Ingraham,
Reuben Haven, Dr. Ira Tenney, David Hazen, Zavan Haven, David Wilson.

The Congregational Church Society was organized there in 1829. Among the
list of members are a great many Hazens and others, and Baxter B. Newton
and Truman Newton (son of David, Sr.).

A little story, and mention of Mr. Newton, may not be out of place here,
namely: "In 1833 a Mr. Bullard and his daughter of Pomfret, Vt., were one
night crossing the West Hartford bridge, when the horse became frightened,
and all were precipitated into the river thirty feet below. Miss Bullard was
killed outright. The old man had been drinking New England rum, the last glass
of which he took at the store of Baxter B. Newton but a few minutes preceding
the accident. This store has since been converted into a dwelling house and is
now occupied by Mr. Hoyt Hazen, the present Postmaster and R. R. Agent."

Sometime between 1833 and 1839 Mr. Newton moved to Norwich, Vt., where
from 1839 to 1841 he was Postmaster. Prom 1841 to 1845 he was "a merchant
at Norwich, Vt.," and is so designated in the record of his second marriage.
He probably spent the remainder of his life in Norwich, his third wife, being a
native of Norwich, spent also her widowhood there. By his second wife he had
several children, all of whom died young.

5254. CALVIN NEWTON 6 (Luther 5 , Seth*, Isaac 3 , Daniel 2 , Kichard 1 ), son
of Luther and Miriam (Newton) Newton of Marlborough, N. H., was born
there, February 1, 1791. He died at Troy, N. H., December 16, 1873.

He married five times and died a widower. He married (1) [pub. in South-
borough, Mass., November 13, 1815], Sally Newton (2224), daughter of Reuben
and Sarah (Brewer) Newton of Southborough, where she was born November
14, 1789. She died at Marlborough, N. H, May 25, 1832, aged nearly 57 years.
Two children.

He married (2) at Marlborough, N. H.[?], February 24, 1833, Lucretia
Lebourveau, daughter of Zenas and Lydia (Worsley) Lebourveau* of Keene,
N. H, where she was born August 14, 1798. She died at Marlborough, N. H,
July 25, 1840. Two children.

He married (3) April 6, 1841, Sally Elmira Mason, daughter of Benjamin
and Phebe (Norcross) Mason of Dublin, N. H, where she was born July 11, 1811.
She died March 24, 1843. One child.

He married (4) October 1, 1844, Sally Hart of Hancock, N. H. She died at
Marlborough, N. H, March 28, 1849.

He married (5), either May 13 or September 20, 1857, Sabrina Worster, daugh-
ter of Reuben and Sarah (Draper) Worster of Swanzey, N. H, where she was
born February 20, 1802. She died at Swanzey, N. H., October 16, 1871. Her
name is also given Sabra Worster. She is said to have borne him one child — a
child of their old age.

After the death of his father, in 1829, Calvin Newton came into possession of
the home farm in Marlborough, N. H, where he resided many years. He was
a member of the Social Library Society at its formation in 1795. March 24,
1834, he subscribed $15.25 toward repairing the old meeting-house.

In the latter part of his life, his son, Martin L. Newton, took over the home
farm, and Calvin Newton bought a farm in Swanzey, N. H. Soon after the
death of his last wife he sold this place in Swanzey, where he had lived several
years, and removed to Troy, N. H, to live with his son Martin L., who had
gone there about 1870, and with whom he died.

The children are given as having been born in Marlborough, N. H, except
that by the last wife, who was probably born in Swanzey, N. H.

5255. DANA NEWTON (Luther 5 , Seth 4 , Isaac 3 , Daniel 2 , Eichard 1 ), son
of Luther and Miriam (Newton) Newton of Marlborough, N. H., was born there
June 17, 1795, and died at Freeport, 111., September 26, 1875.

He married (1) September 24, 1817, Nancy S. Moffett of Shefford, Canada.
She was born at Middlebury, Vt.

He married (2) at Charlestown, N. H, January 1 or 3, 1831, Martha Eeed.
In the mention of this marriage, the historian of Charlestown, N. H., gives it
"Dana Newton, Rockingham." He was probably of that town in Vermont, at
that date.

I have obtained little knowledge of this family. Dana seems to have lived in
Shefford, Province of Quebec, for a while, at least, after his first marriage, as his
first child was born there. I have found only the one child.

5266. AMOS NEWTON 6 (Simeon 5 , Seth 4 , Isaac 3 , Moses 2 , Richard 1 ), son
of Simeon and Sarah (Fiske) Newton of Holliston and Templeton, Mass., and
Marlborough, N. H, was born at Holliston, September 3, 1792 [town record],
"born October — , 1793" [family record]. He died at Templeton, Mass., March
18, 1841. ["Aged 47." Ch. Rec]

He married at Templeton, Mass., March 18, 1819, Lydia Earned, daughter of
Thomas and Lydia (Treadwell) Earned* (Learnard and Learned) of Temple-
ton, Mass., where she was born June 30, 1796, and where she died May 3, 1852.

Amos Newton was a pump manufacturer and farmer. It is said by his
descendants that he lived all of his married life in Templeton, Mass., and that
his children were born there. However that may be, the town records do not
contain the birth record of any of them, but does contain his own death, and that
of the two youngest children. The dates of their births I have taken from a copy
of the Learned Genealogy printed in 1898. The dates given by the family were
very much mixed.

* William Learned 1 , is the manner in which the immigrant of that family wrote his name.
It later appears on the records as Learnard, Larned — and other spellings, but is always the
same family. William Learned from Bermondsey Parish, County Surrey, England, settled
in Charlestown, Mass., in 1632. He was freeman in 1634. He and his wife "Goodeth"
[Judith] were admitted to the church in 1632 (10 mo. 6 d.) and in 1638 he with five
others "were desired to consider some things tending toward a body of Lawes." He was one
who petitioned for and removed to Woburn, where he was prominent in church and state and
where he died March 1, 1645-6. Six children. One was

Framingham ; was wounded in the Narragansett fight ; had eleven children. One was

and had twelve children. One was

Moses Learned 5 , b. Framingham, 1728 ; d. 1799 ; m. Ruth Hill, dau. Dr. Ebenezer Hill
of Sherborn ; removed to Templeton in 1766. Nine children. One was

Thomas Learned 6 , b. 1766 ; d. 1859 ; m. 1789, Lydia Treadwell, dau. of Samuel and
Lydia of Templeton, where they resided and had eleven children. The fourth was Lydia,
b. June 30, 1796 ; m. Amos Netvton.
