  Newberry family in New York

Newberry’s in Orange County - New York



John Newberry and his brother Eddy Newberry moved from the home of their parents in Duchess Co. and took
up land in Orange County between Bellvale and Warwick around Wickham Pond.  The land was purchased from
Thomas Welling. See next page for more details.

When the Newberry’s first entered Orange County, John’s brother Eddy stayed in Orange county long enough to
win the heart of Ruth Burt. Ruth Burt was also the granddaughter of James Benedict. They returned after
their marriage to Franklin, Duchess County to live in the same town as the Elder John Newberry.  Through many name,
county and boundary changes the area ultimately became Patterson, Putnam Co., N.Y.  Eddy Newberry and Ruth Burt
Newberry were buried in Patterson N.Y. Recent information seems to indicate that their graves were moved
to Ulster Co.

Ruth (Burt) Newberry was also one of the first signers of the First Baptist Church in Patterson. All the New York
people appear in these places in the United States Census of New York for 1790.  Elder John Newberry died in
Franklin in 1808.

Eddy and Ruth Burt Newberry's children were  - Joel, Sally, Mary, Alonzo, Bolivai (sic?),Esther and James.  There
are records that indicate that Eddy refused service in the Revolutionary War, as did his brother John Newberry. There
is more information on this in papers written by Colonel  Hathorn to governor Clinton regarding the People of Warwick
and their reticence of fighting in the conflict. For more info

By the 1840's all the Newberry's had either died, moved or married into other families.
