Timothy Case1

b. 16 March 1707/8, d. 1 April 1754
     Timothy Case was born on 16 March 1707/8 at Simsbury, Hartford Co., CT. He was the son of Capt. Richard Case and Amy Reed. Timothy Case married Sarah Holcombe, daughter of Lt. Nathaniel Holcombe and Martha Buell, on 25 September 1730 at Simsbury, Hartford Co., CT.2,3 Timothy Case died on 1 April 1754 at Hampshire Co., MA, at age 46.

Ruth Cost Duncan only lists 5 children and calls Dorothy doubtful. However, Hartford County Probate records for Apri 1754 Show that Sarah's brother was appointed guardian to Ephraim, aged 13, Amy, aged 10 and Dorothy age 7.

The Connecticut Nutmegger of September 2004, page 247, in an article titled "Hartford District Probate Records from 1750 as abstracted by Lucius Barnes Barbour from Volume 17 (1753-57) and Volume 18 (1857-61)" transcribed by Helen Schatvet Ullman, states:

Case, Timothy, Page 17 - 22 April 1754: Timothy , aged 17 and Marsh, aged 15, children of Timothy Case, late of Nine Partners, decd. chose their uncle Nathaniel Holcomb, Simsbury, to be their guardian. Nathaniel Holcomb appointed guardian to Ephraim, aged 13; Amy, aged 10, and Dorothy age 7. Their mother consenting.

Noadiah Holcombe1,2

     Noadiah Holcombe was born on 5 September 1744 at Granby, Hartford Co., CT.3 He was the son of Lt. Peter Holcombe and Margaret Case. Noadiah Holcombe died on 23 February 1745/46 at age 1.

Seaver is confusing on Nodiah. He shows two children with this name. The first born 1794, (probably a typo for 1749)died 1829, who married Affiah Buttolph. The second born in 1749 who married Apphia Butler.

McCracken and Bowman seem more logical. The first Noadiah being born in 1744 and dying in 1745/6. The second Noadiah, the first male born after the death of the first Noadiah, was also named Noadiah in 1749.

Dora Marcia Spring lists the children on her supplemental application and lists both the way McCracken and Bowman do. However she does not mention the first three children mentioned here Azariah Damaris and Mary.

Noadiah Norman Holcombe1,2

     Noadiah Norman Holcombe was born on 4 October 1749 at Granby, Hartford Co., CT.3,4 He was the son of Lt. Peter Holcombe and Margaret Case. Noadiah Norman Holcombe married Affiah Buttolph, daughter of Capt. Jonathan Buttolph and Jerusha Dibble, on 28 May 1778. Noadiah Norman Holcombe died on 24 March 1809 at age 59.3

See the notes on Noadiah's older, deceased brother by the same name. We are following the assumption, like McCracken, that the first Noadiah died and the next son was then also named Noadiah. Seaver shows the two Noadiah's marrying Affiah Buttolph and Apphia Butler, apparently the same woman, either last name could also have been a married name and she a widow as she was in her 30's when she married Noadiah.

Probably the Noadiah who was in Massachusetts, a Sergeant, Capt. Malcolm Henery's Co., Col. David Brewer's (9th) regt; company return dated Oct. 7, 1775; also, Capt. Henry's co., Col. Rufus Putnam's (late Brewer's) 9th regt; order for bounty coat or its equivalent in money dated Roxbury, Dec. 23, 1775.

Arden J. Holcombe1,2

b. 1782, d. 1 May 1834
     Arden J. Holcombe was born in 1782 at Granby, Hartford Co., CT. He was the son of Lt. Col. Peter Holcombe and Zillah Hoskins. Arden J. Holcombe married Rachel Hoskins, daughter of Ashbel Hoskins and Rachel Marvin, on 5 April 1805. Arden J. Holcombe died on 1 May 1834 at fell out of a tree.3 He was buried at West Granby Cemetery, Granby, Hartford Co., CT.3

Was in War of 1812. He was killed by a fall from a tree which broke his back. He and Rachel have an inscribed memorial stone marking the site of the roots of that tree.

The memorial stone says "who was killed on this spot by a fall from a tree 30 Apr 1834", which differs from other records of the date.

"Ardin" was enumerated in the 1810 Granby, Hartford Co., CT, federal census. He had 2 sons under 10 (probably Arden Jay and Guy), and a daughter under 10 (probably Lorenda). He was 26-44, his wife was 16-25.

Arden was enumerated in the 1820 Granby, Hartford Co., CT, federal census, page 12. There were 4 boys under 10 (probably Alson, Chester Reuben, Asahel, and Frederick), and 2 boys 10 to 15 (probably Arden Jay and Guy). Arden was 26-44. There was one girl under 10 (probably Rachel), and one 10-15 (probably Lorenda; if Irene was born 1810-1820 she must have been out of the household at the time of the census), Arden's wife was 26-44.

"Ardon" was enumerated in the 1830 Granby, Hartford Co., CT, federal census. There were 2 boys 10-14 (probably Asahel and Frederick), 1 boy 15-19 (probably Chester), 1 boy 20-29 (probably Alson), and Arden was 40-49. There was one girl 5-9 (probably Pluma), one girl 10-14 (probably Rachel), two girls 15-19 (probably Lorenda and Irene), and Arden's wife was 40-49.

The Arden II listed by McPherson on page 190.2 is Arden Benjamin Holcombe, son of Levi and Martha (Benjamin) Holcombe, and does not belong in this family.

There was a Jay Holcombe enumerated in the 1830 Simsbury, Hartford Co., CT federal census, with 2 males 20-29 and one girl 10-15. This could be Arden Jay and his brother Guy, and a sister?

McPherson and Seaver call Almira, "Almira Foster". In the Connecticut Nutmegger, September 1995, Carol Laun calls her "Almira Alderman Foster Holcombe" and goes into a lengthy discussion of the facts.

Carol is not sure if she is buried in the West Granby Cemetery or the Granby Center Cemetery; Ebenezer owned a plot in West Granby. 5

Carol provided the following: From the Hartford Courant, 22 September 1812:

Orwin Terry

b. 11 October 1811, d. 24 February 1852
Terry-Holcomb Bible
Page 1 - Births
     Orwin Terry was born on 11 October 1811 at CT.1,2 He married Esther Holcombe, daughter of Ebenezer Holcombe and Chloe Bacon, on 17 November 1830 at Simsbury, Hartford Co., CT. Orwin Terry died on 24 February 1852 at age 40.2

The death year for Orwin listed in the bible is not clear with 1852 listed first in a light ink and another year, perhaps 1850, in a darker ink. However, given that he was enumerated in the 1850 census, the 1852 date is probably correct.
