DESCENDANTS OF SARAH GRAVES AND ABRAHAM NEWTON

OF MA & NC

 

 

GENERATION 1

 

Sarah Graves (1) was born about 1715. She married Abraham Newton, son of Abraham Newton and Rachel Newton, on 5 Nov. 1735 in Southboro, MA. He was born 25 June 1715 in Marlborough, MA. He was descended from Richard Newton who immigrated to Sudbury, MA from Lincolnshire, England about 1639. Four of their sons (Isaac, Jacob, George, and Samuel) moved to NC in the 1750's and settled Newton Cross Roads in New Hanover Co., NC. 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.

It appears likely that Sarah Graves was a daughter of or closely related to Thomas Graves, descended from Samuel Graves of Lynn, MA (Samuel1, Thomas2, Samuel3, Thomas4 b. 1686). (Thomas Graves was listed as no. 39 on pages 15 and 24 of the Samuel Graves book.) Thomas4 was born 16 Dec. 1686 in Lynn, MA, moved from Lynn to Reading,. MA as early as 1724, and moved to Southboro, MA in 1738. His son, Joseph Graves, b. 1717, m(1) Mary Newton in 1745, and m(2) Lydia Newton in 1758. Perhaps Sarah was a daughter not previously listed. (R-1, R-2, R-3, R-4, R-5)

He served in this capacity until his death about 1783 during the Rev. War. Until 1835, the church was called Bull Tail Meeting House, probably because of nearby Bull Tail Creek.

Two of the sons of George and Nancy moved from NC to Screven Co., GA. Samuel Newton and his wife Ann moved in 1796 and settled in the vicinity of what is now Newington, and George and his wife Mary moved in the early 1800's and settled in the section of the county near Rocky Ford.
