Oakland Cemetery, Atlanta, GA
     Benajah Dwight Holcombe was born on 21 March 1817 at Simsbury, Hartford Co., CT. He was the son of Benajah Philo Holcombe II and Amy Payne.

Jacksonville, Fla; had to make his own living as a boy and became a printer; moved his family to Atlanta, Ga. soon after the War Between the States, spending a long span of his life there; made strategic purchases of land in locations becoming Atlanta's central business section and profited greatly from its growth into a city; late in life bought a small orange grove in S. Jacksonvile, Fla.


Benajah apparently died in South Jacksonville and his body was brought to Atlanta by train. A funeral notice in the March 27, 1892 Atlanta Journal-Constitution noted that a delay in the trains had caused a postponement of the funeral which would be conducted at the residence of his son-in-law, J. A. Curtis, at 328 Jackson Street.


Maria was his cousin. She apparently returned to Atlanta after the deaths of Asenath and Benajah in South Jacksonville and lived with her daughter Mary Curtis. She died there. A notice in the May 5, 1901 Atlanta Journal-Constitution detailed her passing.


The plot in the Historic Oakland Cemetery has a large central memorial stone with data on all five family members buried there: Benajah, Maria, Asenath, Henry, and Asa, and a foot stone for each. The lot is planted in Scarlet Flame creeping phlox.
