About Nathan Newton

Vital Information

Nathan Newton was born to Timothy Newton and Huldah (Wheelock) Newton on June 21, 1776 in Hubbardston, Worcester Co., Massachusetts.

His occupation and other pertinent personal details of his life are unknown as of now.

Marriages & Children

Nathan married his first wife, Miriam Lyon, on June 26, 1804 in Hubbardston. She died July 30, 1820. Together, their children were:

  • Anna, b. May 5, 1805 and married to Daniel Woodward
  • Nathan, b. May 4, 1807 (d. 1866 in Iowa) and married to Eliza Whittemore
  • Mary, b. February 6, 1810 and married to Daniel Woodward (possibly widower of Anna?)

On October 14, 1821, Nathan married Miranda Jones Davis (b. January 9, 1785 in Berlin, Massachusetts) in Hubbardston, Massachusetts. She was the daughter of Samuel and Dorothy (Whitcomb) Jones and the widow of James Davis. With Miranda, Nathan had:

  • Miranda (known as Mary), b. September 16, 1822 and married to Stillman Clark
  • Miriam Lyon (in honor of first wife), b. September 12, 1824 and married to Asa G. Clark
  • Lucy, b. May 9, 1829 and married to Nathan Brick on February 10, 1852

Death & Burial

Nathan died November 11, 1839 and is buried in Clark Cemetery, about three miles from the center of Hubbardston.

Stowe and some unsourced Internet genealogies say that Nathan died in Utah, but this is due to him being confused with his wife Miranda. He does appear in the Hubbardston vital records, as confirmed by the New England Historic Genealogical Society, as having died in Hubbardston.
