Children of Capt. Benjamin and Hannah (Sackett-Dewey) Newberry of Windsor, Conn.:
v. Marah, (posthumous) b. 3 Feb. 1709/10, d. 5 June 1758; m. 10 Oct. 1728, Maj. and Hon. Roger Wolcott of Windsor, Conn., b. 14 Sept. 1704, eldest son of Gov. Roger and Sarah (Drake) Wolcott. (Gov. Roger Wolcott continuously held public state office in Connecticut for forty-five years, his service closing as governor of the colony from 1750 to 1754.) Maj. Roger Wolcott resided in that part of Windsor now South Windsor, and followed in his father's footsteps a career in public life, serving successively as representative in the Connecticut Assembly, member of the Council, judge of the Superior Court, and major of Connecticut troops; and doubtless he would have attained the gubernatorial chair but for his premature death, 19 Oct. 1759, aged fifty-five years. Children (Wolcott): Roger d. y., Mary d. y., Roger d. y., Sarah, Roger, Epaphras, Mary, Amelia d. y., Parmenio, Amelia, Martha d. y.
