Biography of Charles J. Newton

Newton, Charles J., was born in the town of Darien, Genesee county, N. Y., September 27, 1848, a son of John and Lydia (Newton) Newton. His father died when he was but a child and early in life he was left dependent upon his own exertions for a livelihood. Mr. Newton spent three years as a commercial traveler in the employ of Curtis Whittlesey and later he engaged in the mercantile business on his own account at Fargo, N. Y., where he carried on business for two years, when he sold out and removed to his farm in Darien, where he has since resided. In January, 1890, Mr. Newton married Sarah, daughter of Jacob and Eva (Croop) Spece of Lancaster, Erie county, N. Y. Mr. Newton has never mixed largely in political matters, but his opinions were judiciously formed and fearlessly asserted; he is now a member of the school board. He has a large circle of friends and is an honored and respected citizen.
