Eleanor Elizabeth Holcombe

b. 12 April 1907, d. 29 January 1964
     Eleanor Elizabeth Holcombe was born on 12 April 1907 at New York City, NY. She was the daughter of Myron McRoberts Holcombe and Sarah Crawford. Eleanor Elizabeth Holcombe died on 29 January 1964 at Isle La Motte, Grand Isle Co., VT, at age 56.1 She was buried at North Cemetery, Isle La Motte, Grand Isle Co., VT.1

It is my understanding (though this is not meantioned by Stratton) that Eleanor was also unamrried, as her sister, Mabel C. Holcomb, and that she and Mabel were the last of the Holcomb family to live in the "Holcomb Homestead". Mabel outlived Eleanor by nearly 20 years, and the house has since been sold out of the family. 1

The Alderman Genealogy gives birth and death dates for Mary and suggests she is probably a cousin. The birth date of 1848 is not possible given the census record.

In the 1860 census they are living next door to Lorenzo and Evaline (Alderman) Alderman who had a daughter, Mary, born in 1837. It is possible that this is the cousin that he married.

The Alderman Genealogy also gives Warham's birth date as 1830, but the census records consistently indicate an earlier date.
