  • Name  Abraham Newton  [1
    Born  25 Jun 1715  [2
    Gender  Male 
    Died  Yes, date unknown 
    Notes 
    • He has often been shown as a son of Abraham and Rachel NEWTON, and a descendant of Richard NEWTON who immigrated to Sudbury, MA from Lincolnshire, England about 1639. However, Merle Newton emailed, in February 2013, that he had "discovered that they didn't originate in Southbourough MA as some have reported--disproven by DNA tests."

      In 1769, Abraham served on the jury for a murder trial in Deplin Co., NC. Abraham was living with or near his four sons in 1779 in Duplin Co., NC, where all five signed a petition for the formation of Sampson Co. from Duplin Co. It is thought that Sarah was in NC also. There is an obituary for a Mrs. Sarah Newton in the Cape Fear Mercury, 29 Dec. 1773. It is assumed that this was Sarah Graves Newton and that she died sometime in Dec. 1773. All four of the sons in NC were in the Revolutionary War.
