Levi Holcombe1

b. 19 July 1767, d. 17 January 1831
     Levi Holcombe was born on 19 July 1767 at Granby, Hartford Co., CT.2 He was the son of Joseph Holcombe and Elizabeth Wilcox. Levi Holcombe married Martha Benjamin in May 1797 at North Granby, Granby, Hartford Co., CT. Levi Holcombe died on 17 January 1831 at North Granby, Granby, Hartford Co., CT, at age 63; of erysipalus.2,3 He was buried at Granby Center Cemetery, Granby, Hartford Co., CT.3

There were three men named Levi Holcomb born around the same time and the genealogies have them confused. The First Congregational Church records refer to Levi Holcomb 1st, Levi Holcomb 2nd and sometimes just Levi Holcomb. The same is true in Granby Town Records. Unfortunately, there is no consistency. 3

The other two are Levi, son of Ezra and Phoebe Gillet Holcomb, and Levi, son of David and Elizabeth Griffin Holcomb.

Levi's wife Martha, is also attributed to Levi's cousin of the same name, son of Amos and Mary Dibble Holcombe.

Mehitable Winchell

b. 6 June 1777, d. 14 April 1854
     Reported to be a grand-niece of Gov Winchell of CT. Allen L. Stratton, on page 338 of History of the Town of Isle la Motte, Vermont, states that Mehitable was the daughter of David and Mary (Griffin) Winchell of Wethersfield, CT.

Though Mehitable may have been related to Govenor Winchell of CT, this account of her parents is most likely incorrect.

First, David Winchell did not marry (2) Mary Griffin. She married (1) Samuel Wilson, (2) Anthony Hoskins. All of David's offspring are of (1) Elizabeth Filley. Mrs. Albert H. Chase, in her article "David Winchell (Robert1) of Suffield, Conn.," TAG 24:1, pp49-50, provides the evidence needed to remove this claim and state that "David Winchell had but one wife, elizabeth Filley, whom he married 17 November 1669, the mother of his children." (Source: Stephen M. Lawson).

Second, this David died in 1723.

Mehitable Winchell was born on 6 June 1777. She was the daughter of David Winchell and Elizabeth Filley. Mehitable Winchell married Jesse Holcombe, son of Amos Holcombe and Mary Dibble, in 1796. Mehitable Winchell died on 14 April 1854 at Isle La Motte, Grand Isle Co., VT, at age 76.
