Benedict, Newton Sept. 16, 1849

NEWTON BENEDICT.—Was born in Rhode Island, September 15, 1825, and is the son of David and Margaret (Gano) Benedict. He received his education in his native place, and there resided until seventeen years of age, when he went to Boston--- and became connected with the Boston Daily Times newspaper, at that time the leading daily morning paper in that city. Here Mr. Benedict resided most of the time until his departure for California. The father of our subject was a distinguished divine of the Baptists, and was the historian of the denomination, an erudite article which will be found in extenso in the Encyclopedia Britannica. On March 4, 1849, Mr. Benedict sailed from Boston in the ship Charlotte by way of Cape Horn for the Pacific Coast, and after a voyage of one hundred and ninety-two days, with all its attendant discomforts, cast anchor in the harbor of San Francisco. Proceeding a once to the mining county of El Dorado, he there embarked in a mercantile business, which he continued until 1854. In that year he returned to San Francisco for a short time, and subsequently located in Todd's Valley, Placer County—eighteen miles above Auburn, on the divide between the north and middle forks of the American River. Here he dealt in merchandise until 1862. He next passed four years partly in Washington Territory and in the State of Nevada, still being engaged in the same business, and in 1866 came to Alameda County, located in Oakland, and assumed the affairs of several fire and life insurance agencies. In 1867 Mr. Benedict filled the office of Recording Secretary to the State Legislature of California; performing its functions the last three sessions in the senate until the year 1879-80. In 1875, he embarked in real estate transactions which he now continues, being associated with James R. Capell, under the style of Benedict, Capell & Co., real estate agents, and notaries public, at No. 457 Ninth Street, Oakland. Mr. Benedict married, September 14, 1853, Fanny S. Burrows, nee Sowles, a native of New York, and has: Anna H., and Harry G.
