    Henry married Margaret Matilda Lewis on 15 Feb 1859 in Breckinridge County, Kentucky. Margaret (daughter of Joseph O. Lewis and Ann Nancy Hinton) was born on 10 Apr 1840 in Breckinridge County, Kentucky; died on 22 Dec 1919 in Rome, Daviess, Kentucky; was buried on 23 Dec 1919 in St. Raphael's Cemetery, West Louisville, Daviess, Kentucky.

  2. 3.  Margaret Matilda LewisMargaret Matilda Lewis was born on 10 Apr 1840 in Breckinridge County, Kentucky (daughter of Joseph O. Lewis and Ann Nancy Hinton); died on 22 Dec 1919 in Rome, Daviess, Kentucky; was buried on 23 Dec 1919 in St. Raphael's Cemetery, West Louisville, Daviess, Kentucky.

    • Alternate birth: 10 Apr 1841, Kentucky
    • Alternate birth: 1842, Kentucky
    • Alternate birth: 10 Apr 1842, Breckinridge County, Kentucky

    Notes:

    Listed in the 1911 Owensboro city directory as "Newton, Margaret (wid. Henry), bds. 819 Mulberry."

    The 1910 US census lists her as a "farmer" and as an "employer".

    Her death date has often been given as 16 Dec 1919, or (as on her Find a Grave page) 23 Dec 1919, but the actual date given on her death certificate is simply Dec 1919. The doctor (Edward Barr) states that he has been attending her since 1 Feb 1919 and that 16 Dec 1919 is the last date on which he saw her alive. His signature on the death certificate is dated 22 Dec 1919. Furthermore, the Owensboro Messenger for Tuesday, 23 Dec 1919, says she died "Monday morning", which would indicate the previous day, 22 Dec 1919, the same day her death certificate was signed. The death certificate also states, in agreement with the next day's story in the Messenger, that she is to be buried the next day, 23 Dec, at St. Raphael's.

    Owensboro Messenger, Tuesday morning, December 23, 1919:

    Mrs Margaret M. Newton, one of the oldest and most highly esteemed women of Daviess county, died Monday morning at 7 o'clock at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Walter Elder, in the St. Raphael neighborhood, after an illness lasting for several months.

    Mrs. Newton was born in Breckenridge County seventy-nine years ago, and her husband died in this county twenty-seven years ago.

    The deceased is survived by four daughters, Mrs. James U. Hayden, Mrs. Walter Elder, of the county, and Mrs. Clarence Hayden and Mrs. J. M. O'Bryan, of Owensboro; also three sons, J. S. and L. V. Newton of Daviess county, and S. T. Newton of Jefferson county. The deceased is also survived by fifty-six grandchildren and forty-eight great grandchildren.

    The funeral will take place from St. Raphael's Catholic church this morning at 9 o'clock with service by Rev. Father Higgins, with interment in the church cemetery.

Generation: 4

  1. 8.  Archibald Newton was born between 1770 and 1775 in St. Mary's County, Maryland; died between 1830 and 1840 in Nelson County, Kentucky.

    Notes:

    Hypothesized by several researchers as a son or grandson of Clement Newton who died in St. Mary's County in 1760 and whose will mentions an unborn child. If Archibald is a son, he must have been the unborn child, thus dating his birth back to 1760 or so. But Archibald might also have been a son, rather than a brother, of Gabriel Newton, son of Clement, who died in Washington DC in 1808.

    Either way, a Gabriel and an Archibald Newton show up on the 1790 census for Montgomery County, Maryland along with a Clement Newton (presumably Clement Jr.), all living next door to each other. Further, Gabriel Newton married a Henrietta who was the widow of Ignatius Wheatley, and of course our Archibald Newton married a Wheatley.

    Archibald married Sarah Wheatley on 20 Sep 1813 in Washington County, Kentucky. Sarah (daughter of John Wheatley and Henrietta) was born about 1774 in St. Mary's County, Maryland. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]

    Notes:

    [The origin of the document below is unknown to us. We think Vachel John Hinton was more likely born in or around 1779, and we're pretty sure there's no actual evidence for the name of his mother, but other than that it's interesting.]

    The Incredible Life of Vachel John Hinton
    Vachel John Hinton, November 12 or 13, 1771 - January 17, 1873

    Vachel John Hinton was born on November 12 or 13, 1771 in Maryland to his parents, Benjamin Hinton and Sarah Hopkins-Hinton. In 1791 Vachel arrived in Kentucky and settled in Breckinridge County, Kentucky. Tragically, Vachel became completely deaf by the mid-1790s. He communicated for the rest of his life partly by writing on a slate that he carried around with him. Although he could not hear, he never lost the use of speech, but his articulation was much impaired by age.

    Mary Nancy Mattingly became his first wife on February 17, 1810 in Breckinridge County. Mary was born on May 10, 1790 in Kentucky to James Barton Mattingly and his wife, Emma. This marriage produced three children, all girls: Ann Nancy Hinton, born on December 26, 1810; Mary Ann Hinton, born in 1812, and Mary Ellen, born on September 13, 1813. Sadly, Mary Nancy Mattingly lost her life on September 26, 1813 when her youngest daughter was not yet two weeks old.

    Waiting over three years to remarry, Vachel married Jane Elizabeth Mattingly on January 20, 1817. Ignatius Mattingly and his wife, Sarah Catherine Fowler-Mattingly were her parents. Jane was born in Kentucky about 1792. This marriage would produce a total of eleven children, all born in Breckinridge County, Kentucky: John, born in December, 1817; Sarah M., born in 1825; Joseph H., born on March 25, 1820; James, born on November 14, 1822; Catherine, born in 1824; Austin, born in November, 1825; Nancy, born in 1828; Allen L., born on December 15, 1829; Ezekial, born in 1831; William, born in 1834, and Elizabeth, born in 1836.

    On January 17, 1873, Vachel John Hinton died at 102 years of age in the county he had help settle in 1791, that of Breckinridge County, Kentucky. His obituary described him as a devout Catholic who had for a number of years devoted much time to prayer. He was buried at Mt. Carmel Cemetery (once called St. Anthony) in Axtel, Breckinridge County, Kentucky. He left seventy-three children and grandchildren.
