Richard Newberry of Weymouth and Malden, MA is an enigma after twenty years of study. Research into his family has created a wealth of information about Newburgh/Newberry studies everywhere. Still, we are unsure from where immigrated before arriving in New England circa 1643 where he is recorded as a Freeman. For the past ten years, various records in the UK have been accessed in an attempt to find his root family. Theories exist, however they remain only theoretical.
His descendants are thought to have been families who settled in Connecticut, but this is not unequivocally proven beyond a shadow of a doubt. These Newberry's who settled on the lands of North Groton, Connecticut, among the Native people were further thought to have migrated inland to N.Y. along the Oblong and Little Nine Patent. They settled near the Monrovians who were ministering to the Indians of the area. See generations III and IV.

(still researching this.)
IV. John and and Zerviah (Burch) Newberry m. 26 Nov. 1739, Westerly, Rhode Island
Children born in Groton, CT. and Duchess, Co. N.Y.
1. JONATHAN b. Sept 3, 1740 Jonathan and Edy purchased land in Warwick. Later sold it to their brother John, and the two of them went back to Duchess Co. (I have the deeds and covenants struck with Wm. Wickham) In the covenants there is also named a man named Samuel Perry who entered into a transaction with them for land offered by William Wickham. The family home was on a lake known as Wickham Lake.
2. JOSEPH b. 1741
3. RHODY b. Jan 8 1741-42
3. EDY b. 1743 m. Ruth Burt.
4. JOHN b. 1746 d. January 4, 1818 Bellevale, N.Y. m. Jemima Benedict, dau. of Joanna and James Benedict.
(Some people think that Mary Blackman was the mother of Jemima, but the Barbour Collection confuses all this with Jemima’s birth being recorded both ways. This is a project that needs more work. All James Benedict’s children after Jemima are attributed to Joanna – no one in the family has done the proper work on this – so far. Joanna and Mary Blackman just seem to disappear from the record. Something is missing here.)

3. Elizabeth Haskins (7 children)

This fifth wife has not yet been proven beyond a shadow of a doubt, as marriage records for this period in and around Iowa are rare. The administrator of this site and this pedigree would be grateful to hear from anyone with more information. An in depth study has been done regarding this last wife, but records are lacking.****
Children of James Newberry and
Elizabeth Haskins 3rd wife
1. Alma Moroni (Almaroni) Newberry born December 25th 1846, Des Moines Township, Lee County, Iowa, d. March 12, 1904. Fayette, Decatur County, Iowa, m. Stella Philena White, May 22, 1884, daughter of Valentine and Martha Ann (Trout) White. Children: James Vernon Newberry b. July 10, 1885 d. April 6, 1967; Paul Alma Newberry b. December 10, 1887 d. February 12, 1965; Eve Lenora Newberry b. June 10, 1890 d. April 19, 1972; Joseph Orval Newberry b. May 6, 1894 d. June 24, 1977; Arthur Benjamin Newberry b. December 14, 1896 d. May 20, 1978; Fred Alexander Newberry b. July 4, 1899 d. January 20, 1924; Nina Jolan Newberry b. August 6, 1902 d. April 1973. Information provided by Stacy S****.
Naming of this child: The Book of Mormon has a Book of Alma, in which, “Alma the younger was the first Chief Judge and High Priest over all the land of Zarahemla.”  As you might remember Zarahemla, was the City of God, and James lived in the modern Zarahemla (1841) in Iowa during his years in Lee County, Iowa. The name Moroni is derived from the angel who revealed the golden plates to Joseph Smith that would become the Book of Mormon.
2. Joseph Hyrum Newberry born at Trading Point, Pottawattamie County, Iowa February 14, 1848, blessed at the McOlney Branch January 27, 1850. d. June 17, 1919. Lake View, Holt County, Nebraska. Buried: Page, Holt County, Nebraska. m. Almira Fry, daughter of Daniel and Amanda (Clark) Fry. March 28, 1873. Children: John, b. April 18, 1874; Joseph, b. February 27, 1875; Mattie, b. November 10, 1875; Clarrie, b. May 15, 1877; Willie, b. June 27, 1878; Rosa, b. August 31, 1879; Ida, b. November 1886; and Bessie, b. April 4, 1890. (2) Married: Mary E. Conrad Sanford. Information provided by Donna P*****.
Naming of this child: James named his son Joseph Hyrum, to honor the Prophet, Joseph Smith and his brother Hyrum. It was perhaps James’ way of keeping the friendship of Joseph and Hyrum in his heart forever.
3. Heber (Brigham) (Abraham) Newberry born at the Precinct of Kanesville, Pottawattamie County, Iowa. August 26th 1849, m. Massie Almira Winegar, daughter of John Winegar and Elizabeth (Smith) Winegar on July 4th 1871 by Levi Graybill. Baptized in the RLDS Church in June 19, 1866 by his father James Newberry. The name Brigham was dropped at some point but is found in some records. The name Abraham is found in some records, but not universally. d. January 22, 1923, at his home, south of Tryon, McPherson Co., Nebraska, buried at Good Hope Cemetery, northwest of North Platte, Nebraska. Children: Emma, b. 1874; Lilly, b. 1876; John W., b. 1878; Pearl, b. November 1879; Effie J., b. August 1883; Katie L., b. March 1887; Isabelle F., b. March 1891; Ray James, b. August 1895. Information provided by Dick Jessen.
Naming of this child: James probably named this child after Heber C. Kimball. I have also found in some places he is also called Brigham Heber. Interestingly, later records seem to drop the “Brigham.” Does this show James’ displeasure with Young?
4. Mary Elizabeth Newberry born in Kanesville Precinct, Pottawattamie County, Iowa December 2, 1850 d. December 7th 1850, aged five days.
5. Jolana Emily Newbery born June the 5th 1852 Kanesville, Pottawattamie County, Iowa, m. Henry Winegar son of John Winegar and Elizabeth (Smith) Winegar August 3, 1871 by D. Hougas, minister of Gospel. d. Jackson County, Missouri 1935. Divorced. Henry Winegar died on the 4th of October 1904 at Pomona, Howell County, Missouri. Children: James, b. 1875; George, b. 1877; Steven, b. 1881; Myrtle, b. 1883; Thomas, b. 1885; Benjamin, b. 1888; Mattie, b. 1890; and Henry, b. 1892. Information provided by Donna P*****.
6. Daniel Newberry died at birth.
Half Brother to the Above Children
Secratus (Williams) Newberry was James' stepson. b. March 24, 1845. Des Moines Township, Lee County, Iowa, d. August 15, 1882 in Pottawattamie County. He married Esther (Stiddam/Stidham) (Hopkins) (Bratton) (Denton) Williams on November 3, 1878 and they were married by Levi Graybill. Children: David b. 1880. Esther had a daughter Matilda Ann Denton, by her third husband. Secratus died sometime before 1900. There may have been more children. Secratus’ biological father is unknown to us; however we assume he knew the name of his biological father, as he changed his name to Williams in later life. In the last census, Serastus is again shown as a Newberry. 
**Note about blessings of Newberry children: Ronald Watt of the LDS Historical Dept. related to me that Joseph Hyrum was five months old and blessed at the McOlney branch in January of 1850. Three other Newberry children were blessed that same day. Those would have been Alma Moroni, Serastus, and Heber.
 Daughter of Lyman Wight and Mary Ann Otis, born March 4, 1852, Bandera, Bandera Co. Texas
 Bent was a member of the Council of Fifty and supporter of the Lamanite mission.
 Wixon was a sea captain and owned several ships ported out of Barnstable, Mass., the schooners Roxanne, Peri, Mt. Hope, and Terri. This family is descended from early chief of the Wampanoag tribe, Massasoit – who assisted the Pilgrims.
 Calvin Beebe was the right hand man of Alpheus Cutler, leader of the Lamanite missionaries, who formed a group named the Cutlerites, to which many of the extended family belonged or supported. Calvin’s sister Luana was married to Orrin Porter Rockwell. It is unknown how Rockwell was related to Submit Rockwell Starr Beebe.

 The Williams surname is prevalent in the LDS Church of this time, but Secratus’ father’s name has become an enduring problem for which no solution, to date, has been discovered. John Smith Newberry, son of James Newberry married a woman named Lucinda Williams. Her family has also been problematic to pin down.
