The Newton Family History

   The story goes, that three Newton brothers, came to New England from England; and probably all the Newton's here are descendents of these brothers.

John Newton (1520-1563), married Mary Nixe (1525-1565) in Westby, Lincolnshire, England. They had a son: Richard Newton (1551-1641)

Richard Newton (1551-1641), married Issabel in Westby, Lincolnshire, England. They had a son: Isaac Newton (1578-1641)

Richard Newton is believed to have traveled to America in 1638-39.
Richard was one of the founders of Sudbury, Massachusetts 1645, Freeman.  
He was one of the early petitioners for the town of Marlborough, his family lived in the southerly part of town. 

The Newtons built a "fine old homestead in Marlborough, Massachusetts, they had a farm, tannery, blacksmith shop, and a cider  mill.
In 1664 Richard helped petition for the erection of a church.  
Richard Newton fought in the King Philips' War (1675–1676).

"I, Richard Newton of Marlborough, in the County of Middlesex in their Majesties Province of Massachusetts Bay in Now England, husbandman, being in Competent health, and enjoying the freedom of mine understanding and by reason of my great age expecting my dissolution shortly. Do make and constitute my last Will and Testament in manner and form following......."

Moses Newton (1645-1736), First marriage, Joanna Larkin (1646-1713) in 1668 at Marlborough, Middlesex Co, Massachusetts.
They had children:
Second marriage, Sarah Joslin in 1714 at Marborough, Middlesex Co, Massachusetts
Third marriage, Mary Joslin

"Having provided a house for their minister, they (the settlers) then erected on the Hill where now stands the High School Building their house for public worship.  
It was a small, one-storied building with oil paper in the windows for lights, and thatched with straw or a kind of tall grass taken from the meadow, since called Thatch meadow.  
People were called to meeting at that time by the beating of a drum.  Then flocked the people two by two to the little old church.
"Each man equipped on Sunday morn' with psalm book, shot and powder horn!"
The time of preaching the sermon was about an hour in length, one in the morning, and another in the afternoon after a short intermission, and was measured by an hour glass placed upon the pulpit.  Carriages were unknown, and those who rode went on horse back with pillion for wife or daughter who dismounted easily with the aid of a horse block near the meeting house.
No man ever went unarmed in those days, for the dreaded foe might ever come upon them.
One cold March morning in 1676 while preaching his Sunday sermon in this little thatched-roof meeting house Father Brimstead was interrupted by the awful cry:  'The Indians!  The Indians are upon us!'  Confusion and fright ensued.  
All made for the neighboring garrison (the old Ward house) where miraculously they escaped, with a single exception.  
Brave Moses Newton, gallantly stopping to rescue an aged and infirm woman who was unable to move rapidly, brought her at last safely to the garrison, but with a ball lodged in his elbow.  He was deprived of the use of this arm ever after."
Moses and his son, Moses, Jr., were in Isaac Howe's garrison.

Caroline Edgerton Brown (1807-1881) mothers name was Lucy Edgerton and this is the beginning of the name of Lucy in the Newton family, I suggest that the next baby girl born of a Newton father be called Lucy; and the next Newton boy baby be called Foster, to perpetuate these most honored family names.

Perrin Newton, who was called for years Uncle Perrin by neighbors and friends, brought his bride to the Newton Home, at New Boston, now occupied by Celia Ryther Newton (1859-1935), the widow of Charles W. Newton (1850-1889), and her son Oscar, & daughter Etta.

The children were:

Lucy Samantha Newton (1891-1990), married Lloyd Erwin Voss (1893-1984)

Milton DeWitt Newton (1857-1896), died when not quite 39 years old and left Emma Jane Stedman (1859-1947), a widow of only 37 and 8 children from ages 17 to three years old. An elderly farm acquaintance;  Mr. Bates offered to marry her to help raise her children as she could help him in his later years.

   Being a Civil War Veteran, he spent his last few years in the Veterans Home at Bath, New York. On her several visits to see her husband she became acquainted with a Mr. Miller. Upon the death of Mr. Bates, Mr. Miller convinced her to marry him; which she did.
   With the inheritance of Mr. Bates estate, she had some money. Mr. Miller talked Emma into buying a store in or near Lowville, New York and she operated it while Mr. Miller traveled as a salesman and buyer.
On one of his "trips" Emma learned that he was visiting his other wife. When he returned, he found all of his belongings outside and the door locked. This bigamy of course, made their "marriage" illegal, so Emma was re-granted the war pension of Mr. Bates.

   She was able to sell the store, but lost considerable in their business venture. A few years later, she married Eugine Harrington who was a good husband for some thirteen years. He died in 1921 and she lived until 1947 in her 88th year. She is buried at Houghton, New York near her only sister Ella Stodman Slade, but her husband Milton is at the Fairview Cemetery in Rodman, New York.
