Jonah Holcombe

b. 20 November 1774, d. by 1831
     Twin

From Stephen M. Lawson, Port Orchard, WA

The family of Johan is primarily constructed from census records. The strong evidence that he was the father of Harriet, wife of Henry L. Andrews, is based on consistency of dates and places, and the death certificate for Harriet naming her parents as Johan and Sabra. Jonah is given in the following Census records of NY: 1810 Onondaga Co., 1820 Genesee Co., and 1830 Genesse Co. From these records, Jonah was born 1770-1775, the other males were born 1794-1802, 1794-1802, 1802-1804, and 1804-1810, Jonah's wife was born 1775-1780, and the other females were born 1800-1810, 1804-1810, 1810-1820, and 1820-1825. Jonah lived at Orangeville, Genesse (later Wyoming) Co., NY in 1820 and 1830. The family of Harriet (Holcomb) Andrews lived at Johnsonburg, in the Town of Orangeville. Married about 1798. A letter dated Jan 10, 1831, written by his brother-in-law Chauncey Rowe (married to Olive Holcombe) reports that "Jonah Holcomb, last fall, was dying from consumption and there is no probability of his being now alive."

Jonah's widow was probably living with his son Chauncey at the time of the 1840 Census, and age 60-70. Jonah Holcombe was born on 20 November 1774 at Simsbury, Hartford Co., CT.1 He was the son of Josiah Holcombe Jr. and Dorcas Smith. Jonah Holcombe died by 1831 at probably Wyoming Co., NY.

Samuel moved to Killingworth, CT, in 1667 with his father-in-law to the part now Clinton.

Stiles listed a last child "Samuel" of Samuel and Deborah without further information. As the first child Samuel survived, it is unlikely that there was another.

Hepzibah Buell1

b. 11 December 1649, d. March 1704
     Hepzibah Buell was born on 11 December 1649 at Windsor, Hartford Co., CT. She was the daughter of William Buell and Mary Post.2 Hepzibah Buell married Lt. Thomas Wells, son of Thomas Wells, on 12 January 1672/73 at Windsor, Hartford Co., CT.3 Hepzibah Buell married Daniel Belden on 17 February 1698/99 at Deerfield, Hampshire (now Franklin) Co., MA.3 Hepzibah Buell died in March 1704 at age 54.4

Thomas and Hebzibah had eight children. On June 6, 1693, Hepzibah and two of her children were tomahawked by Indians and the family was broken up. Hepzibah was taken prisoner when the town of Deerfield was sacked in 1704 and was killed on the march to Canada.

McCracken Albert Welles says hepzibah's death occurred in March 1704; Stiles has 29 Feb. 1704, which, if right, would have to be 29 Feb. 1703/4. mrs Parsons agrees with Stiles and syas that Hepzibah was captured by the Indians and was taken captive, dying on the journey to Canada. The late Dr. Robert R. Buell, however, informed me that Hepzibah died in 1734, having survived her second husband. This would be, of course, quite impossible if he married, third, Sarah (Hawks) mattoon on some unknown date, and the date of Sarah's death recorded at Hadley is right.

Died certainly before the date of her mother's will (29 Aug. 1684), and possibly even before that of her father's will (26 July 1681), as he does not mention any living daughter except Mary. Albert Welles says she d. 16 Nov. 1681, which is the date of her father's death, and Mr. Starr was unable to find any record of such a date in connection with her.2

McCracken Simon, a baker, may have been the Symon who was baptized 25 April 1613 in the parish church of Barnstaple, Devon, as fouirth child of John Mill by hi swife Wilmott Frenshe, who wre married there 28 Aug. 1606, as shown by Miss Eunice M. Lamb. the date of the marriage of Simon Mills to Mry Buell is recorded at Windsor as 23 Feb. 1659/60, which is probably correct, as the births begin about a year afterwards, but for some reason not explained, Mattehw Grant enters the date as 23 Feb. 1656 (i.e. 1656/7). simon Mills had married his first wife Joan, maden name not discovered, on 11 Oct. 1639 and she died at Windsor on 5 July 1659, without having given birth to any child, so that Simon was free to marry a second wife on the date given above.

Simon mills died intestate, but his estate was not finally settled until 1719 after the death of his widow (Manwaring 1:335 f.)

McCracken notes (TAG 1981) that spouse is John Reade, not John Reuel as stated in the Hayes Genealogy (also Reuel in McPherson). Bowman spells it Read in one place, Reed in another.

There is confusion about the Hannah that married John Read (Reed, Reade). In NEHGS, April 1958, McCracken lists her as the daughter of Joshua and Mary (Hoskins) Holcombe.

Dr. Philip Reade

b. 13 May 1671

Nathaniel Holcombe IV1,2,3,4,5

b. 1 February 1719/20
     Nathaniel Holcombe IV was born on 1 February 1719/20 at Simsbury, Hartford Co., CT.6,7 He was the son of Capt. Nathaniel Holcombe and Thankful Hayes. Nathaniel Holcombe IV married Margaret Cossett, daughter of Raney Cossett, on 20 March 1740 at Simsbury, Hartford Co., CT.8,5

Bowman lists Margaret as the wife married in 1740 but mentions that Spear lists the wife married in 1740 as Hannah Holcomb, but McCracken notes that Nathaniel's 1st child and son Nathaniel, married Hannah Holcombe in 1760. Bowman also assigns the 1760 marriage of Hannah Holcombe to 1st son Nathaniel. Seaver is then incorrect in making Hannah the second wife of this Nathaniel. McPherson also incorrectly shows Hannah as second wife, but also shows Hannah as the wife of Nathaniel V.

Bathsheba Holcombe

b. 9 December 1767
     Bathsheba Holcombe was also known as Bethia Holcombe. She was born on 9 December 1767 at Simsbury, Hartford Co., CT.1 She was the daughter of Nathaniel Holcombe V and Hannah Holcombe.

Baptism is recorded as 5 April 1767 by Roger Viets, but perhaps Bathsheba and Bethia are different people, since unless one of the dates is wrong, the baptism precedes the birth. Even the fathers may not be identical.

Hulda Holcombe1

b. 24 January 1742/43, d. 19 May 1798
     Hulda Holcombe was born on 24 January 1742/43 at Simsbury, Hartford Co., CT.2 She was the daughter of Nathaniel Holcombe IV and Margaret Cossett. Hulda Holcombe married Simeon Holcombe, son of Lt. David Holcombe and Mehitable Buttolph, on 8 May 1760 at Simsbury, Hartford Co., CT.3 Hulda Holcombe died on 19 May 1798 at age 55.4

Simsbury VR shows Hulda as a daughter of Nathaniel Holcomb 3d.

McCracken suggests she may have married in Windsor-Bloomfield on 29 Dec 1777, Simon Holcombe (David, Nathaniel, Nathaniel, Thomas). Bowman accepts this marriage. See Bowman, Vol I, pgs 150 and 154 for a discussion of Hulda's possible mother.

Burials in the Granby Center Cemetery shows her as a daughter of Nathaniel and Hannah (Holcombe) Holcombe.

Zaccheus Holcombe1,2

b. 14 January 1744/45, d. 19 July 1762
     There is some confusion. There is a tombstone in the Granby Center Cemetery for a Zacheus Holcomb 14 Jan 1744 - 19 July 1762 from Carol Laun Granby Center Cemetery, s/o Nathaniel and Margrit Cossitt Holcomb. It is very possible that Nathaniel IV had a son Zaccheus born 1744 died 1762 and that Nathaniel V had a son Zaccheus born 1762 and living in 1790 or in fact Nathaniel and Margrit had two sons, both named Zaccheus since the first died before the second was born.

Seaver shows the Zaccheus born in 1762, died about 1812.

Zaccheus enlisted Sept 24, 1779 in Capt. Thaddeum Weed's 5th Conn Regt. He is recorded with family in the 1790 census of Sandersfield, Berkshire Co., MA. Zaccheus Holcombe was born on 14 January 1744/45.3 He was the son of Nathaniel Holcombe IV and Margaret Cossett. Zaccheus Holcombe died on 19 July 1762 at Simsbury, Hartford Co., CT, at age 17.4,5
