This source identifies Isaac as the son of Sarah Fuller, and the father of John Newton and Lemuel Newton rather than their grandfather.
Apparently the will entered probate on 16 May 1812. No further information about this will is given in the citation; however the author (Mr. Steve Newton) has privately provided a scanned copy of the will. The will designates Isaac's "beloved wife Sarah" Newton as administrator of the estate. Attached to the copy of the will is a letter to son Lemuel Newton dated in 1813 stating that Sarah has passed away before she could discharge her duties as administrator and designating Lemuel as administrator of the estate.
- ↑ 3.0 3.1 No birth record has been found for Isaac.
To be of legal age when he married in 1758, Isaac needed to be born by 1737. It is typical that the oldest son might be named after the father, and if Isaac was the oldest son, he must belong to his father's first marriage, born about 1720-1722. However, since the father remarried in 1723, and the son Isaac married in 1758, it seems more likely that he belonged to the father's second marriage, so born about 1732-1737.
- ↑ No death record has been found for Isaac.
Source:Leonard, Ermina Newton. Newton Genealogy, p. 189, quotes the town clerk of East Windsor: "There are a number of deeds in the records, to and from Isaac Newton, ... I am in doubt as to which Isaac [father or son] is meant in each case." Thus, no better estimate is available from these deeds.
The dates given for the will would indicate that he died after 19 Mar 1812 and before 16 May 1812.
