Carol Laun reports that Addie had no children of her own but raised Frank's son Ned, an "obstinate spoiled child."

The Salmon Brook Historical Society sponsors a competition for high school students and Amy Williams of the Loomis Chaffee School wrote a lenghty essay in 1994 on Adelaide. Based on her diaries it details the tedium and monotony of daily chores for a 19th century Granby woman. The essay is reproduced in "Collections of the Salmon Brook Historical Scoiety", volume 5.

Daniel Irving Holcombe1,2

b. 1843, d. 14 December 1900
     McPherson gives a date range of 1841-2, prior to the marriage, probably based on a census report. Seaver's date is more appropriate to the marriage date.

Daniel enlisted in Oct 29, 1861 for 3 years as a private in the 41st Ohio Regt., organized at Camp Wood; as a member of Co. A, 41st Ohio volunteer Infantry in the battle of Franklin, Williamson Co., Tenn, near Nashville being caught at Overton's Knob in an advance too near enemy's breastworks to retreat, rushed over the parapet and took prisoners and battle flags as the enemy began to evacuate; then lay near to prevent an attempt at skirmish. The flags were believed to belong to Stewart's Corps at Franklin, Tenn. Another account puts his capture of flags in battle before Nashville, Tenn., Dec 15 and 16, 1864; was dispatched to Washington, DC, Feb 13, 1865, where he was awarded a Medal of Honor for taking the flags by the Sec'y of War.


After his discharge, he became "a traveling man," and in 1879, he opened a business in Sedalia, Missouri, listing his occupation as merchant, according to a statement he made that's in his pension folder.

His first wife, Myra B. Holcombe, was granted a divorce by the Circuit Court of Pettis County, Missouri, along with $30 a month alimony. They had one son. Daniel's second wife was Cora Belle Rippey, daughter of John Rippey, of Sedalia. He married Cora on 15 Feb. 1894. They had no children.

After his final pension check was returned, the Pension Bureau recorded Daniel's death as having occurred on 14 Dec. 1900 in Sedalia. In Cora's filing for a widow's pension, Daniel's physician attests that Daniel's death did occur on that date. According to Daniel's entry in a Medal of Honor citation book, he is buried in the Crown Hill Cemetery, Sedalia.

Daniel Irving Holcombe was born in 1843 at Hartford, OH. He was the son of Webster Holcombe and Harriet A. Ducker. Daniel Irving Holcombe married Cora Belle Rippey on 15 February 1894. Daniel Irving Holcombe died on 14 December 1900 at Sedalia, MO.
