Children in the household were Newton 16, and Elmer 14.

From an undated unknown newspaper obituary:

Horace Seaver Holcomb, son of Edward and Priscilla Holcomb, was born May8 1852, near Binghampton, New York, and at the age of 5 years he moved with his parents to Wisconsin, and in the year 1872, he came to Kansas. He homesteaded in Osborne County in 1873, his farm being located 12 miles northeast of Luray.

On February 29, 1880 he ws married to Miss Xollie Belveal and went to housekeeping on his farm where they resided for 26 years. There were nine children born to his union, three daughters and six sons -- Fort E. Holcomb, Willow Springs, Mo; Leotus E. Holcomb, Luray, Kans; Mrs. Olive Wallace, Cleo, Okla; Clara E. Jameson, Bellflower, Calif; Horace Elmer L. Holcomb, Willow Springs, Mo; Chas. Newton Holcomb, Sterling, Colo; Edward D. Holcomb, North Bend, Ore; Virgil I. Holcomb, Chanute, Kans; Mrs. Mabell Bidinger, Berthoud, Colo.

His occupation was framing and he worked early and late toiling with his hands to earn by the sweat of the brow the necessities for his family. There were lean years experienced to test the brawn of this pioneer father and husband. During the time when the older two sons were small, times were hard and the sturdy ambitious father secured work in the Ellsworth County coal mines and earned the honest wages which was directly applied to the family needs. Luxuries were an unknown quality back there. A team of oxen was the means of turning the soil and seeding the fields out of the prairie stage.

At a later time this pioneer father joined a schooner caravan traveling hazardous roads across mountains and desert to California, taking months to make the trip. The old fashioned covered wagon mode of travel moved by inches vastly in contrast to the era this man of over four score lived to learn about. The wheels of motor cars speeding where once a bare trail existed. Home was always on the Osborne County farm until 1906 a deal was made for Graham County property and later Trego County where he maintained his residence. He visited occasionally with the son near Luray and took such great interest in gardening and caring for a small vineyard. He enjoyed planting seeds and cultivating the plants to the harvest. He wanted to be useful and busy. On an average his health remained rugged but he had failed gradually and in his final illness of these past weeks, his very moments were numbered. He passed away December 24, 1939, at the home in Wakeeney at the age of 87 years, 7 months and 16 days. Surviving him are his widow, Mrs. Xollie Holcombe and the unbroken circle of sons and daughters, 31 grandchildren and 40 great grandchildren. Other relatives are a sister, Mrs. Hulda Cherry, Geneseo, Ill., and one brother, Ralph Holcomb, Lincoln, Kans. The last two of the elderly lineage.

He was a member of the Luray Masonic Lodge No. 153 A. F and A, M., being one of the first to join the order and retained this membership all through the long period numbering 45 years.

A good husband and kind father has gone to his reward. He belonged to that great army of humanity whose days on earth were lived for the cause of progress and in preparation for the richer life which he realized and acknowledged he too must some day meet, and that way he traveled when on Christmas Eve he departed this earthly life, leaving besides his loved ones, a host of friends in Wakeeney and in Luray and the Cheyenne community where he lived many years.
