I might have found a clue.

Martha M. Newton married Albert Pratt 25 Nov 1855, in Dekora, Columbia , Wisconsin. His birth place is shown as New York. I did not find a birth place for her, but her father is listed as Henry Neff and her mother as Amanda Neff.

The 1860 Wisconsin census shows Albert and Martha Pratt. There is a son listed as Isaac Pratt, age 10. Often in a remarriage the enumerator did not list the correct surname for a step child. The given name Isaac was often used when the surname was Newton. Could William James have had 3 given names?

In this 1860 census Martha is shown as age 32, and her birth place as Ohio. I found Albert Pratt still in Wisconsin in 1870 but I did not find Martha or the Isaac shown in 1860, although there are still a couple of the younger children shown.
