Newell Holcomb, an old settler of Jo Daviess County, is a true type of the noble hearted, intelligent, stalwart, resolute pioneers, whose interprise and energy have been prominent factors in developing the resources of this region and bring it to its present advanced state of civilization and wealth as one of the foremost counties of Northern Illinois. He has long been identified with the farming interests of this part of the State and his 270 acre farm, on sections 26 & 27, Woodbine Township, in point of cultivation and improvement, is considered one of the best in this locality. It is well-stocked, and his sleek and well-kept herd of graded Short-horns compare with the finest cattle in the township, and his Poland-China hogs are of a high grade and bring the best market prices.


Mr. Holcomb was born Aug. 15, 1819 on the Isle of Mott, in the waters of the beautiful Lake Champlain, in Grand Island County, Vt., and he was derived from good old New England stock. His father, Johathan Holcomb, was born near Burlington, Vt., and was for 13 years a sailor on Lake Champlain. He was also a cooper and jeweler by trade. He died at Nora, Jo Daviess Co., in the spring of 1875, rounding out an honorable life at an advanced age. He had settled in this county in 1845, as one of the pioneers. The maiden name of the mother of our subject was Electa Clark and she was a daughter of Truman and Affina (Wheeler) Clark, her mother having been a cousin of ex-Vice President Wheeler. There were 10 children in the subject's parents' family. Newell, our subject; Lydia, deceased; Asa, of Warren, Henry, of Storm Lake, Iowa; Alonzo, of Dakota, Il; William, of San Francisco, Cal;Electa Ann, of Elizabeth; Reuben of Storm Lake, Iowa; Melinda, deceased; and Clarinda, of Red Oak, Iowa were twins. William, an extensive dealer in wheat, shipping it to Liverpool, is now very wealthy--he and his partners being worth $3,000,000. He went to California in 1851 on foot, a barefoot, penniless young man; on the way was taken sick and laid down on the ground in a brickyard to die; a kindly Samaritan picked him up, took care of him until his recovery. He then went to work with a will, and gradually built up his present fortune.


Our subject removed with his parents to Plattsburg, N.Y., when about 15 years old, and he was on the old battle-ground many times. Three years later they removed to St. Lawrence County, N. Y. , and in the fall of 1838 our subject came to Springfield, Ill., and in the following spring he walked from that city to Galena, carrying all his worldly possessions in two cotton handkerchiefs. When he arrived in Springfield he had seven bits in his pocket, and started for Galena, and that was his entire capital to start out in a new life. He soon found work in the employ of Judge Stone, on the Portage farm, at gardening, etc. in 1840 he assisted in building Gillett's mill, and was there engaged in making flour barrels the ensuing four years. He then coopered at Thompsons's mill, on the Apple River, and after that he went to Stephenson County, and where Lena now stands, entered 480 acres of government land, and on what is now Main St., that town, afterward cradled harvests of wheat. He was actively and profitably engaged in raising grain that for some time and use to haul his wheat to the mill to have it ground, and then peddled flour all through the mines, and thus carried on an extensive business from which he made much money. he still, however, retained his residence in this county, and improved his present farm providing it with substantial buildings, etc.


Mr. Holcomb has been three times married. His first marriage, July 9, 1945, was to Miss Louisa, daughter of Andrew Kellog and they had two children--Maria L. and George W. Maria married Sidney Willison of Rush Township, and they have eight children. George married Mary Tyson, of Savanna, Ill. and they have one child. Mrs. Holcomb died Sept 7, 1849 , after a brief but happy wedded life. The second marriage of our subject, which occurred May 12, 1850, was to Nancy Cressy (Crisse) , and five children were born to them--Bethia J., Marietta, Ira B. deceased, Henrietta D., William H. Bethia married Benjamin Claypool, of Orleans, Neb. and they have 5 children. Marietta married James Rankin of this township, and they have 5 children.. Ira married Lizzie Roberts and both died, leaving one son Clarence, who lives with our subject. Henrietta married William Loven, of this township and has one child. The mother of these children departed this life July 17, 1869, leaving to them the precious legacy of a life well-spent. Mr. Holcomb was married to his present amiable wife July 4, 1871 and their union has been blessed to them by the birth of three children, Jennie M; Edward M; Mabel A; Mrs. Holcomb's maiden name was Sarah Montgomery and she is a daughter of the late Edward and Mary (Shelley) Montgomery. The mother was a native of Pennsylvania , and the father of England. Sarah was born in Galena, Jo Daviess Co.,


Mr. Holcomb has amassed a comfortable fortune by intelligent enterprise, and by the exercise of his traits of character that he holds in common with others who have achieved success in life solely by unremitting and well-directed toil, and now in the enjoyment of a serene and active old age, he may well be proud of his honorable record. Our subject is alive to all public interests, especially to the advancement of education, as School Director, he has done much in times past to promote the cause in this township. He has been Road commissioner--was the first to hold that office in this township--but he generally refuses official honors. He is a valued and active member of the Methodist Church and is identified with the I.O.O.F. In his political views he is a strong Republican. He died in 1875 in Nora, Jo Daviess Co., Il. He was married to Nancy CRISSE on 12 May 1850 in Jo Daviess Co., Illinois.

From Portrait and Biographical Album of Stephenson Co., Ill. 1888

Alonzo was born in Grand Isle County, Vt. March 23, 1830. He was only 3 years old when his father and the family went to St. Lawrence Co., N.Y. where he was reared and educated. He was a sprightly boy, and his stock of resolution at that early day is shown by the fact that he and two brothers walked all the way to Jo Daviess County from Chicago, to which point he had come by water. The family first settled at Elizabeth, but subsequently Alonzo took up his home on the prairie, elsewhere in the state, where he sought to establish himself. He was married Sept. 12, 1850, to Miss Gulielma Way, the daughter of Dr. H. A. Way, a native of North Carolina. Also states that Alonzo now (1888) owns a farm of 200 acres in Rock Run Township, a good body of land in Jo Daviess Co., and Iowa and property in Dakota. Mr. and Mrs. Holcomb are prominent in their community, usually taking an active interest in social happenings and are generally esteemed. In politics, Mr. Holcomb is a stalwart Republican. His career has been somewhat varied, especially since he came to Stephenson County. He is now retired from active labor.

James Irving Holcombe1

b. 1 May 1876, d. 1962
Mr. and Mrs. James Irving Holcombe
     James Irving Holcombe was born on 1 May 1876 at LaSalle, IL. He was the son of William Henry Holcombe and Sarah Rebecca Dobler. James Irving Holcombe died in 1962.

President and owner of J.I. Holcomb Mfg. Co., Indianapolis, manufacturer and distributor of cleaning chemicals and brushes, employing about 300 people. President of Holcomb and Hoke Mgf. Co., Indianapolis, originators of Butterkist popcorn machines, made attractive enough for the finest stores and lobbies, also manufacturer of commercial refrigerators and fire-tender coal stokers. He was half owner of Continental Mfg. Co., maker of sweeping compounds. Director of the American National Bank, Indianapolis; President of the Indianapolic Lincoln Union for rebuilding the sanctuary around the grave of Nancy Hanks; commissioner of Department of Conservation of Ind; trustee of Butler University; active in stimulating 1st World War bond and community chest subscriptions.


He graduated from Warren, IL, High School in 1893; studied 3 years in the University of Michigan, entered business at Sullivan, Indiana with Fred Hoke as Holcomb and Hoke Mfg. Co. to make brushes.


As a young man he lived in New York City and there became an intimate friend of Dr. William Frederick Holcombe through whom he became a member of the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society, his admission being announced at the meeting Aug 13, 1900, as one of the three new members, the other two being William Whitney and John D. Rockefeller.


James, a member of the Board of Trustees of Butler University and his wife, gave $250,000 to the university for the construction of an observatory as a gift for the university's centennial celebration. The observatory was intended for public use and student learning. Initially the observatory was supposed to house a 24-inch telescope valued at $30,000 in 1953 dollars, but in October of 1953 a larger 38-inch mirror was available and Holcomb jumped at the chance to have the largest telescope in the state of Indiana and the ninth largest in the United States. This raised the cost of the telescope to $48,500 and the total project cost to $325,000. In October of 1954 the telescope was installed by J.W. Fecker, Inc. The telescope and assemblage was shipped to Indianapolis from Pittsburgh by truck. Installation of the telescope in the 50 foot high dome was done by crane (even today a crane must be used to get the 600 pound mirror from the dome to ground level for resurfacing every five years). Governor George N. Craig delivered the dedicatory address and Charles F. Kettering, vice president and director of General Motors Corporation, spoke at the dedication dinner on November 5th 1954, The observatory was placed on a high knoll on the north end of the Butler academic campus, adjacent to the woods of the Holcomb Gardens. The observatory is visible from 38th street and to motorist driving northward on Clarendon Road.
