Copied from "Southington Phoenix", April 22, 1881:

Mr. Douglass Williams died very suddenly Tuesday afternoon. He was out riding during the day and had been on the street that afternoon feeling quite well. He went home and sat down, complaining of feeling badly and died almost immediately. Mr. Williams was a man much respected in this community and his sudden death was a shock to all, although his ill health for some time past made it apparent that he could not live very long; but none expected the death angel would come so soon. He probably died of heart disease. The funeral will be Friday afternoon at 2 o'clock in the Baptist church.

     James Huggins Holcombe was born on 31 August 1806 at probably New Hartford, CT. He was the son of Phinehas Holcombe Jr. and Nancy Smith Huggins. James Huggins Holcombe married Emily Merrill Johnson, daughter of Nathan Johnson and Sarah Butler Merrill, on 23 April 1844 at Hartford, Hartford Co., CT. James Huggins Holcombe died on 18 November 1889 at Positano, Italy, at age 83. He was buried on 11 April 1890 at Spring Grove Cemetery, Hartford, Hartford Co., CT.

James Huggins Holcomb was baptized in the Town Hill Congregational Church, New Hartford, Connecticut in June of 1807; by letter of transmittal he joined Center Church, Hartford in February of 1834. In 1822 his name is inscribed as a pupil in Dr. Cooley's School in Granville, Massachusetts, where he boarded with Mr. Haines, who reported to the former's mother that the young pupil studied hard and was a good scholar.

James Huggins Holcomb was one of the first members of the Hartford County Bar Association and began the practice of law in Hartford in 1834. One of the very early members of the Republican Party, he was Clerk of the Superior Court from 1838 to 1842, Clerk of the House in 1845 and of the Senate in 1847.

In 1840 James Huggins Holcomb purchased the land and dwelling at 79 Spring Street, Hartford, which in the next 110 years was to be occupied by six generations of Holcombes.

In March of 1873, he, his wife, their son James and daughter "Kitty" (Sarah) left for Europe, intending a trip of "a couple of years"; however, Kitty died in February 1874; James Huggins Holcomb died in 1889 and James Winthrop died in 1910; after that Emily Merrill (Johnson) Holcomb returned to Hartford, where she lived at the Highland Court Hotel on Windsor Avenue, about opposite Belden Street.


James and Emily were enumerated in the 1850 Hartford, Hartford Co., CT, federal census. He was an attorney, age 43, she was 25. Children in the household were James W. 4, and John M. 2. Also in the houeshold was his mother, Nancy 66.


James and Emily were enumerated in the 1870 Hartford, Hartford Co., CT, federal census, 2nd Ward, page 143. He was a lawyer age 62, she was 45. Children in the household were James W. 24, John M. 22, and Kate 7.

From the Courant 16 December 1889:

Mr. James H. Holcombe, for many years a resident of Hartford, died after a brief illness, on the 18th of last month, at Positano, Italy, where he has been living for a year or more.

Mr. Holcombe was born in Granby, in this state in 1806, and was in his 84th year, being one of the oldest members, if not the oldest, of the Hartford bar. He began the practice of law here in 1834, and his first law partner was the Hon. James Dixon. Afterward he was with James O. Walkley and Judge Z. A. Storrs. He was clerk of the superior court from 1838 to 1843, when he was succeeded by Thomas H. Seymour. Mr. Holcombe was clerk of the house in 1845, and of the seenate in 1847. He was never of vigorous health, and his strength failing, he went abroad, with his wife and daughter and one son, in 1878 and has lived there ever since, returning only once to Hartford in that period. His daughter died the first year of their absence. His home has been most of the time in the even climate of Italy, for several years in Capri, though he also traveled a good deal; and Positano, where he died, was chosen because of its general healthfulness.

Mrs. Holcombe, who was a daughter of General Nthan Johnson and sister of Mr. Charles W. Johnson, survives him, as do both of his sons, Mr. James W. Holcombe, who graduated at Yale in 1868, and Mr. John M. Holcombe, Yale '69, the vice-president of the Phoenix Mutual Life Insurance Company. Mrs. Holcombe and Mr. James W. Holcombe will probbly return to Hartford in the spring.
