William Gamaliel Ward1,2

b. 2 October 1694, d. 6 June 1774
     McCracken notes that it was probable that Damaris was not baptized immediately after birth as her first child was born 1727. Mr. Gamaliel Ward informed the Simsbury clerk that the first eight of his children were born at Hartford (L. B. Barbour found no births recorded there), but he did not say this until after the birth of the 10th, when his memory may have been hazy. The Ward Genealogy, cited above, says that the first five were born at Union, the 6th at Somers. William Gamaliel Ward was born on 2 October 1694. He was the son of William Ward. William Gamaliel Ward married Damaris Holcombe, daughter of Sgt. Jonathan Holcombe and Mary Buell. William Gamaliel Ward died on 6 June 1774 at Simsbury, Hartford Co., CT, at age 79.

Jacob Holcombe1

b. 14 April 1715, d. 29 July 1737
     Jacob Holcombe was born on 14 April 1715 at Simsbury, Hartford Co., CT.2 He was the son of Sgt. Jonathan Holcombe and Mary Buell. Jacob Holcombe married Margaret Case, daughter of Capt. Richard Case and Amy Reed, on 10 February 1736/37 at Simsbury, Hartford Co., CT.3 Jacob Holcombe died on 29 July 1737 at Simsbury, Hartford Co., CT, at age 22.4

McCracken notes that his death was either 29 July 1737 according to Simsbury Records, or 13 July 1737 according to Manwaring (3:286). Jocob's inventory of £78/07/05 was taken 14 Oct 1737 by James Hillier, James Smith and John Wilsoxson 2nd; distribution gave £33/15/03 to widow Margaret; to Azariah Holcomb £11/1/3; to Damarus Ward alias Holcomb and to Mary Holcomb [not yet married] £L11/05/03 each. This shows there was no posthumous child.

Deanna Bowman shows Damaris as a daughter of Sgt. Jonathan Holcombe and mary Buel (Vol 1, page 73). Given that Ruth shows that Jacob and Margaret Had 3 children between when they were married Feb. 10, 1736, and when he died July 27, 1737, it seems unlikely that these were their children. Perhaps they were from an unrecorded earlier marriage of Jacob's?

Mary Holcombe1,2,3

b. 10 July 1717, d. 27 January 1802
     Seaver does not mention this child. In McPherson, page 194, Mary who on 15 August 1739 married Amos Case is misidentified as the daughter of Samuel Holcombe, whereas she was the youngest of the seven children of Jonathan Holcombe. His will dated 29 May 1759 refers to her as "Mary, wife of Amos Case." In the will of her brother Jacob, who died 29 July 1737, before her marriage, she is referred to as "sister Mary." The will of her grandfather, Peter Buell, also refers to her as "Mary Case," along with Damaris Ward and Azariah Holcomb, called children of Jonathan Holcomb. 4 Mary Holcombe was born on 10 July 1717 at Simsbury, Hartford Co., CT. She was the daughter of Corporal Samuel Holcombe and Martha Phelps. Mary Holcombe died on 27 January 1802 at age 84.

Michael Holcombe1,2

b. 11 July 1733, d. 20 January 1817
     Michael Holcombe was born on 11 July 1733 at Granby, Hartford Co., CT.3,4 He was the son of Jonathan Holcombe and Amy Case. Michael Holcombe married Mary Hillyer, daughter of Capt. James Hillyer and Mary Eno Humphrey, on 3 February 1757.5,6 Michael Holcombe married Mabel Holt in November 1799.6 Michael Holcombe died on 20 January 1817 at Sheffield, Berkshire Co., MA, at age 83.4

Seaver indicates that he moved with his brother Jonathan to St. Albans, Vt., an opinion which McPherson shares. DAR records seem to indicate otherwise, showing his death in Massachsetts.

McCracken asks: Did he marry Mary Hillyer, daughter of James and Mary (Humphrey)Hillyer? He is mentioned in his grandfather's will and was probably living 1790 in Sheffield, MA (3/0/2), next to Plinny (1/1/1).

Michael served as a 2d Lieutenant, Capt. John Spoor's 2d co. (West co. in Sheffield), 1st Berkshire Co. regt. of Mass. militia; list of officers chosen by the several companies in said regiment, as returned by Mark Hopkins and others, field officers, dated Great Barrington, March 26, 1776; ordered in Council May 6, 1776, that said officers be commissioned; reported commissioned May 6, 1776; also, Lieutenant, Capt.

Benjamin Simonds's detachment; return dated Sheffield, May 1, 1777, signed by John Fellows, of a detachment made from said Fellows's (Berkshire Co.) brigade, to reinforce the Continental Army, agreeable to order of General Court, and which marched the beginning of Jan. [1777]; also, Lieutenant, Capt. John Spoor's co., Col. John Ashley's (Berkshire Co.) regt; entered service July 7, 1777; discharged July 28, 1777; service, 22 days; company marched to Kingsbury near Fort Ann; also, same co. and regt; entered service Sept. 19, 1777; discharged Oct. 19, 1777; service, 31 days; company marched to Stillwater; roll certified at Sheffield by Brig.

John Holcombe1

b. 1782
     In an ironic difference, McPherson and Seaver have confused this John, born 1782 in Ct.

Seaver says this John is his Great Grandfather, but that he is descended from Thomas-Joshua-Joshua-Phineas-John; on Page 20 of his book.

For now, Seaver himself appears where he wanted, under the Joshua line, while further research is done. Finding birth records in CT will not be very helpful, there were apparently two Johns who went with their fathers John and Benjamin, to Panton, Vt. Perhaps wills or probate records will help.

John was a farmer, stockman,"champion" deer hunter and trapper in the Adirondack Mountains, NY. During the War of 1812, while at his hunting shanty in the mountain forest, he was captured by the Indians and sold to the British as a prisoner of war. His family considered him dead, but after a time, when it was ascertained that he was not a soldier, he was liberated and returned home. After his release he moved to Cattaragus Co., NY. During his absence, his wife "distributed" the children among relations.
John Holcombe married Mary Lynde, daughter of Jonathan Lynde and Molly Franklin. John Holcombe was born in 1782. He was the son of Lt. Benjamin Holcombe and Mary Kendall.
