She died at Webster, Mass., March 31, 1887. They had no children. Mr.
Newton was one of the leading men of Shrewsbury, up to the time of his
removal to Webster in 1876. By occupation, a blacksmith. He entered
politics and was active therein in Shrewsbury ; but during his residence
in Webster he took no part in politics aside from voting the straight
Republican ticket at each election. He was not only known as one of the
oldest residents of Webster, but also as a man of strict integrity, honest
purposes and of high moral standards. The thirty years of his life in
Webster were rich in the friendships he formed among a wide range of
people. At the age of 73 years he joined the Congregational Church,
continuing such membership to the time of his death. Mrs. Newton's
sister, Miss Sarah Ij. Brown, had always lived with them since the death
of her mother, and remained to keep house for Mr. Newton after the death
of his wife, at his home in Mechanic St., Webster.

days. Burial in Fairview Cemetery, in the adjoining town of Greenleaf, Wis.

He married at East Windsor, Conn., about 1818, Lucinda Loomis, who was
born at East Windsor, Conn. [May 7, 1801], and died at Shrewsbury, Mass.,
August 12, 1847, aged 46 years, 3 months, 5 days. Scrofula.

Adam Xewton was a soldier in the War of 1812, serving for the town of
Shrewsbury, Mass. After the war he was for a time in Connecticut, where he
married; and later returned with his family to Shrewsbury, where he bought a
farm and resided for many years. About 1860 he sold the farm and went west
to live with his daughter, Mrs. Mayville, in Wrightstown, Wis., where he spent
the remainder of his life, and at whose home he died. He was a carpenter and
farmer, and was busy at both occupations all the days of his manhood. He is
spoken of as a man of excellent qualities. His home farm in Shrewsbury has
been repurchased, repaired and refurnished for a summer home by his grand-
daughter.

His children were probably born in Connecticut ; none are recorded in Shrews-
bury.

He was a sailor, and called Boston his place of residence. He paid

had children born there. My record of the family is imperfect, owing some-
what to the reception of my request for cooperation and information in
their records. One daughter writes : "I mentioned it to my sister and she
wasn't at all in favor of it and said she hoped I wasn't." Children :

Wrightstown. Wis., to which, in 1860. he removed with his family. A
farmer. At the beginning of the Civil War he enlisted as a soldier in Com-
pany F. Fourteenth Wisconsin Infantry Volunteers. This, of course, took
him away from his family of little children, and his wife's father became
their "present help in time of need." After his return from tb? war he
resumed his business of farming. This land lies joining the town of
Rockland, where he also owned land, and where his youngest child was
born. It was thought by some of the family that this land once belonged
to Adam Newton, but the records show no such ownership. As I have
taken the trouble to look it up in the County Register's Office, it may be
interesting to those concerned to have it given here. Abstract of title is
