I am the great granddaughter of George F. Newton of Worcester, Ma. I have been working on the Newton line and found I have connections to Constant Merrick of Hardwick, MA, who was active in the Committee of Correspondence during the Revolutionary War and also was descended from Stephen Hopkins of the Mayflower!

Frank is correct. I checked the death record for Mariah (Newton) Potter in the Prescott, Hampshire, Massachusetts death records and it does give the maiden name of her mother as Nancy Barton. [Source: Mass. Vital Records 1841-1910, (1894) Vol. 446:47]
