The Norcross Family Tree
Philip Norcross, 1697 to 1748
Sarah Jackson, 1703 to 1754
Philip, fourth child and the youngest son of Nathaniel Norcross, was born in 1698. He married in 1721 Sarah, daughter of Edward Jackson, one of the prominent and early settlers of Newton. In 1720, he bought the ancient house with seven acres of land supposed to have been built by Richard Park, Senator, which stood on the site of the present (1893) Elliot Meeting House in Newton.
He died in 1748 aged 50 years. His family consisted of nine children, five sons and four daughters. His widow died in 1754.
His inventory was a house, barn, shop and 14 acres of land amounting to 1659 pounds and 15 shillings.
Two of his sons, Samuel and Jonathan did not remain in Newton long, as Samuel's name
is found among the early settlers of Gardener, Maine in 1762 and Jonathon among the early settlers
of Georgetown (now Bath, Maine) in 1760 and was the first settler by the name of Norcross in the
State of Maine.
