John G. Holcombe II1,2

b. circa 1760, d. 14 October 1833
     John G. Holcombe II was born circa 1760 at Granby, Hartford Co., CT. He was the son of Consider Holcombe Jr. and Eunice Gillett. John G. Holcombe II married Jane Lamson, daughter of Elnathan Lamson. John G. Holcombe II died on 14 October 1833 at Monroe, Muskingum Co., OH. He was buried at Richardson Cemetery, Monroe, Muskingum Co., OH.

Weir does not mention the second marriage to Aurelia and Bowman does not assign the children to either wife. Carol Laun documents the improbability of the marriage of John and Aurelia at all.

Carol Laun derives birth from Rev War pension record S37116.3 The gravestone indicates he was 68 yrs, 7m. 4ds. which would make his birth 10 Mar 1765.

John enlisted Jan 1781 as a private in Captain Allyn's company, 3rd Connecticut Regiment, and was paid for militia duty until Dec 31, 1781, for which service he was pensioned beginning May 17, 1818 then 58 years old, and a resident of Muskingum Co., OH.

Carol quotes an unusual document in the pension record from a neighbor who calls him a fraud, and a drunk.3

Bowman gives birth and death years with no source.

The Richardson Cemetery is located n Monroes Twp., R5, one mile from Otsego, on Rt. 83, turn left on Granny's Knob Road (Co. Rd.d 17), 1/2 mile to cemetery, on right side of the road.

William M. Karr

b. 2 February 1818, d. 23 September 1892
     Nothing is known about William's time in Scotland. It is believed that he came from theEdinburgh area, as Mid Lothian is the ancestral home of the KARR (pronounced like 'care') family castle. Family lore says that he was a younger son of the Marquis of Lothian. By virtue of his later birth he had no chance of inheriting either land or a title. One member of the KARR line is reportedly buried inWestminster Abbey. There is also a KJARr clan located along the border between Scotland and England. A Scottish history book suggests that it is this clan that took the spelling of KARr rather than the KER clan of Mid Lothian. In either case, William's prospects were slim in Scotland, so he sailed for North America.

William arrived in Canada around 1837 and may have possibly entered through Grosse Isle, just north of Quebec, located on the St. Lawrence River.

William and Alvira lived in Huntingdon Co., Quebec from 1838 to about 1860 where their second youngest child was born in 1859. All of their children were born in Canada. Harriet is reported to be born in elgin, Ontario, Canada in 1864 which may indicate the start of their migration to Grand Rapids, MI. At the end of the Civil War, the couple and their eight children completed the move to Grand Rapids, MI, where they settled on the northwest side right along the Grand River. William M. Karr was born on 2 February 1818 at Scotland. He married Statira Alvira Wagner, daughter of Nicholas C. Wagner and Sylvia E. Pelton, in 1838 at (Godmanchester) Huntingdon, Québec, Canada. William M. Karr immigrated between 1837 and 1838 to Québec, Canada, Scotland. He died on 23 September 1892 at Grand Rapids, Kent Co., MI, at age 74. He was buried at Oakhill Cemetery, Grand Rapids, Kent Co., MI.
