About David Newton

David Newton was the first Newton to move to Hartford, Vermont. He built a cabin up on what is now Newton Lane in Dothan, Hartford, Vermont. In 1777 it was reported he moved his cabin using oxen to drag it to its new location. This was perhaps out of respect of the local inhabitants. The cabin was too close to a previously established native camp.1

David served in the Revolutionary war in Capt. Joshua Hazen's Company in Col. Wood's Reg't. that marched to Brookfield in the Alarm October 1780. They marched 40 miles and the lowest ranking soldiers were compensated 4 pounds.
