daughter of Bezaleel, Jr., and Rachel (Winch) Turner* of Holden, where she
was born February 18, 1797. She died at West Bolyston after 1849.

Mr. Newton lived in West Boylston many years, it is said, and had children
born there. The town records show no births. I have very little information
of this family and have not been able to reach any of his descendants. He
became unsettled in his religious views and went to live among the Shakers,
at Shirley Village, in Harvard, Mass., thinking they were a little nearer the
truth than anything he had found. He died with them.

QIQ NEWTON GENEALOGY

He married at Rutland, Mass., April 22, 1S28, Sarah Luan Fessenden, daugh-
ter of Stephen and Sally (Newhall) Fessenden* of Rutland, where she was born
December 11, 1805. She died at Holden, Mass. Burial at West Boylston.

Mr. Newton lived in Paxton for several years after his marriage. His first
child was born there. In 1831 he moved with his family to German Flats,
Herkimer County, N. Y. His second and third child were born there. In 1837
he returned to Massachusetts and settled in West Boylston, where he remained for
thirty-one years. His last three children were born there. In 1869 or 18T0 he
moved to Holden, Mass., where he resided for twenty-six years. He died at the
home of his daughter, Mrs. White, in Connecticut. He was a deacon of the
Baptist Church. Farmer.

5894. i. Mary Dickerman 8 , b. Feb. 19, 1S29, at Paxton ; m. at West Boylston, Nov.
27, 1850, Israel Manning Ball, son of Josiah and Sopbia (Manning) Ballt
of Holden, where be was b. April 23, 1826. Mr. and Mrs. Ball have spent
their lives on a farm, for one year after marriage in West Boylston, and
then in Holden, where they still reside, in feeble health, to be sure, but
full of years and good works. Mr. Ball carried on briekmaking in con-
nection with farming. In 1860 he purchased the up-and-down saw mill on
Ball Creek, and carried on a lumber business, until the timber in that
vicinity was used up. After the death of his father in 1870 he purchased
the old Manning homestead on "Manning Hill" in Holden, that had been
built by his grandfather, Capt. Israel Manning, soon after the Revolution-
ary War, which has always been kept in good repair, and which is their
home to the present time. Here Mr. Ball, with his son Granville M.
Ball, engaged in the manufacture of brooms imtil 1SS5, since which time
Mr. Ball has given up more strenuous labors and interested himself in the
raising of poultry.

Mr. and Mrs. Ball in early life (she in 1S45) became members of the
Baptist Church, and have been prominent in church work and Sunday
school. He served on the town school committee for sixteen years, and
held the office of justice of peace for forty years. "He has been a life-
long Republican." He is a member of the S. A. R., eligible through the
service of his grandfather, Capt. Israel Manning. Mrs. Ball had the care
of her son's four children after the death of their mother — thus rearing
two families, who have the right to call her blessed. Even in advanced
years she seems a person of much energy and will power, and a mind
clear to grasp and discuss ideas. She writes : "I read a great deal, I
have always enjoyed it, and do now, but my eyes are troubling as I read
more than I should — there is so much to read in order to keep up with the

5485. ALEXIS NEWTON 7 (Windsor 6 , Silas 5 , Hezekiah 4 , Isaac 3 , Daniel 2 ,
Kichard 1 ), son of Deacon Windsor and Mary (Dickerman) Newton of Paxton,
Mass., was born [in the vicinity of 1807, I should think. E. N. L.]

He married [about 1830 or less] Jane Ayres.

The "Dickerrnan Ancestry" gives Alexis as one of the children of Deacon
Windsor Newton, whose grandchildren have no knowledge of him, which is not
strange.

removed to Peoria, 111., when a young man and engaged in the manufacture

5486. EZRA L. NEWTON 7 (Windsor 6 , Silas 5 , Hezekiah 4 , Isaac 3 , Daniel 2 ,
Richard 1 ), son of Deacon Windsor and Mary (Dickerman) Newton of Paxton,
was born there June 23, 1809, G. S. in W T est Boylston, Oakdale Cemetery. He
probably died at Oakdale.

He married Susan M. [also C] who was horn , 1812. G. S.

Mr. Newton probably resided at Oakdale, in the town of West Boylston. The
graves of himself and wife are in the Oakdale Cemetery, and others whom I.
suppose to be his children. Where the first six children were born I have not
discovered. The one daughter to whom I wrote did not respond.

I am told Mr. Newton was an ardent member of the Methodist Church, and
an excellent man.

5490. DR. WILLIAM NEWTON 7 (Windsor 6 , Silas 5 , Hezekiah 4 , Isaac 3 ,
Daniel 2 , Richard 1 ), son of Deacon Windsor and Mary (Dickerman) Newton
of Paxton, Mass., was born there May 2, 1820. He died in Oxford, Mass.,

He married at Oxford, Mass., July 30, 1845, Eliza Livermore Smith, daughter
of Horace and Nancy (DeWitt*) Smith of Leicester, Mass., where she was born
May 2, 1825. She died at Oxford, Mass., February 9, 1903, aged 77 years, 9
months.

Dr. William Newton was a skillful dentist; in which profession he took high
rank at Worcester, Mass., where he had settled before marriage. Left an orphan
at the age of three years, he was reared by an aunt, at Petersham, Mass. After
passing through the public schools, he attended the Worcester Academy and the
Literary Institute at Suffield, Conn. He was a prominent Baptist and would
have followed the ministry; but failing health and a weak voice caused him
to give up those studies. He did hold one or two pastorates, and later preached
