Seaver and McPherson put Lemuel here, Bowman puts him as a son of David, #42222. Carol Laun at the Salmon Brook historical Society agrees. Bowman seems to be in error.


Lemuel C. and Julia were enumerated in the 1850 Granby, Hartford Co., CT, federal census. He was a teacher age 55, she was 60. Children in the household were Jeremy 28, and Hugh 25.


Lemuel C. and Julia were enumerated in the 1860 East Granby, Hartford Co., CT, federal census. He was a farmer age 66, she was 71. Daughter Julia and her family with Henry Merwin were enumerated next door.


Lemuel C. was enumerated in the 1870 East Granby, Hartford Co., CT federal census, page 6. He was a farmer, age 76. Oswold was a farm laborer, age 51. Daughter Julia, a widow was in the household, age 54, with children Cicero 27, Arabella 17, Jennie 13, and Carrie 10.

Amasa Holcombe1,2

b. 21 September 1794, d. 8 November 1880
Donna Holcomb Larose has concluded that this is
Amasa Holcombe Jr. (1794-1880) and his wife Mary Ann Doane
     Amasa Holcombe was born on 21 September 1794 at Canton, Hartford Co., CT.3,4 He was the son of Amasa Holcombe and Ruth Hoskins. Amasa Holcombe married Almira Rice, daughter of Richard Rice and Hannah Buttles, circa 1816.4 Amasa Holcombe married Luna (?) on 14 March 1842 at Simsbury, Hartford Co., CT.4 Amasa Holcombe married Mary Ann Doane after 8 March 1857.4 Amasa Holcombe died on 8 November 1880 at Meriden, New Haven Co., CT, at age 86.3,4 He was buried at Baptist Cemetery, Granby, Hartford Co., CT.3

The family of Amasa Jr. is not adequately detailed by McPherson and Seaver. Donna Holcomb Larose has been researching her ancestor Amasa since 1995 and the following information on the Descendants is the result of her extenisve research.

If Amasa married more than 3 times, there is no proof (yet) and it appears highly unlikely. McPherson lists a 4th wife, Mary Webby, and a 5th, unnamed wife.

Amasa and Luna were enumerated in the 1850 Canton, Hartford Co., CT, feceral census, page 293. He was a farmer age 55, and she was 35. Children in the household were Rockwell 12, Almira 9, Phelps 6, and Amherst 4. Also in the household were Antoinet Goddard 13, Luke Holcombe 52, and Noah Hart 45.

Luna Godard MIGHT had been previously married to Junius (or Jurius) Godard. Per Canton Church Record, he died 1841. The Antoinet in the household in 1850 is likely Luna's daughter.

Amasa and Mary were enumerated in the 1860 East Granby, Hartford Co., CT, federal census. He was a farmer, age 65; she was 27. Children in the household were Phelps 16, Amherst 13, and Ruth 5, and Charles Henry 1. In addition a number of laborers and servants were listed.

Amasa was enumerated in the 1880 Meriden, New Haven Co. CT federal census (age 85) in the household of his son Charles Henry.
