Southborough...is it Southborough, MA? We had Newtons in Paxton, Worcester County, MA; Marlborough, Middlesex County, MA; Leicester, Worcester County, MA; and some I have not located yet. If so, it is very possible. My line goes back to the immigrant Richard Newton of Bures St. Mary's Church, Essex, England; his father was Robert Newton of Woolthorpe, Essex, England.
Debra I have sent you an email but I wanted to write here that yes, this is Southborough, Worcester, MA. Southborough was taken from Marlborough in 1727 and it is likely that your Newton family lived in this part of "Marlborough", especially in the later years.
I sent you an email to the address under your signature. I am looking forward to working with you and finding our actual Newton connection on your husband's side!
Just letting you know...I mentioned your blog in today's Follow Friday post at In Black And White: Cross-Cultural Genealogy. http://ibawcross-culturalgenealogy.blogspot.com/2011/08/follow-friday-connections-come-when-you.html
