Richard 1 ), son of Edmund, Jr., and Polly (Ward) Newton of Phillipston, Mass.,
was born there June 23, 1821, and died there , 1850.

He married at Phillipston, May 10, 1843. Elizabeth Myrtie Seaver, daughter
of Abraham and Mercy (Cole) Seaver of Phillipston, where she was born

Mr. Newton resided in Phillipston. His children were born there. He died
without making a will and his estate was administered at Phillipston in 1850.
Case in Probate Court No. 43,213.

His children are mentioned in the will of his mother, which was probated
October 23, 1862, "children of my late son Ira Newton," they, presumably, being
then alive. [I might state bere that the giving to them $1.00 each was to
legalize the bequest of the whole to the son Charles.]

and West Boylston, Mass., was born at German Flats, .Herkimer County, N. Y.,
January 20, 1832 ; died .

He married at West Boylston, in 1853 or 1854, Martha M. Flagg, daughter
of Capt. Benjamin and Julia (Holbrook) Flagg of Worcester, Mass., where she
was born March 10, 1828. She died soon after the birth of her second child,
who also died November — , 1857, and mother and child were buried together
at West Boylston.

Dr. George F. Newton studied dentistry at Worcester, Mass. He moved from
Massachusetts soon after the death of his wife. In November, 1867, while prac-
ticing dentistry at Rondout (now Ivingston), N. Y., he insured his life for
$2,000 on the "20 payment" life plan, in the Mutual Benefit Company of
Newark, N. J., making the policy payable to his daughter. He made a first
payment in cash and a note, and the company never heard from him again. In
1906 the company was searching for him to pay the sum due him or his heirs
on the policy — a trifle over $100. His brother-in-law saw him about 1871 in
New York City, the last time any of the family saw him. He is supposed to
have died between the last two dates.

His wife, Martha M. Flagg, was sister of Eliza Flagg, who married George
Newton 7 , son of Guy S. 6 (Hezekiah 5 , Jr., Hezekiah 4 ). See note to his number.
