Crayton Philo Holcombe1

b. 24 January 1830
     Crayton fled an apprenticeship and "went to sea" as a teenager. His letters and visits home, and his generosity when he was home, led his family to believe that he had become fabulously wealthy in his seafaring adventures.

In fact, his adventures had many highs and lows but never produced the fortunes his family imagined. He became a trader in the South Pacific and was living on the island of Yap when he was killed by Moros with spears and then lifted on spearpoints and carried away.

Carol Laun, the curator of the Salmon Brook Historical Socitey, has written a wonderful article on Crayton of about 27 pages.

Crayton was enumerated in the 1850 Granby, Hartford Co., CT federal census in the household of Timothy Dean, age 20, as a sailor. Crayton Philo Holcombe was born on 24 January 1830. He was the son of Virgil Holcombe and Betsey Messenger. Crayton Philo Holcombe died at St. Matthias Island, New Guinea.
