Of Ivah Newton, his granddaughter writes in 1906 : "My grandfather came
from Phillipston, Mass. He had seven children. None of them are living. My
father, Albert G., was the eldest child," and was born at Hinsdale, N. H. It
would seem that the rest of his children were born there, since both the oldest
and youngest sons were, and his granddaughter says they were. "They were born
and raised at Hinsdale," are her words.
