     Dr. William Frederick Holcombe was born on 2 April 1827 at Sterling, Worcester Co., MA. He was the son of Deacon Augustine Holcombe and Lucy Bush. Dr. William Frederick Holcombe married Margaret Wanzer, daughter of Moses Wanzer and Sarah Aiken, on 16 November 1852 at New Fairfield, CT. Dr. William Frederick Holcombe died on 17 March 1904 at Presbyterian Hospital, New York City, NY, at age 76.

from SEAVER:

Dr. Holcombe attended Williston Seminary, Easthampton, Mass; graduated at Albany (NY) Medical College, 1850; took special medical courses in Universities of Paris and Prague. Professor and lecturer on diseases of the eye and ear, New York University Medical College, 1861-2; at New York Ophthalmic Coll., and Hosp. 1863; and at N. Y Med. Coll. for Women, 1867. Mem Medical Societies of NY, Amer. Med. Ass'n. and International Med. Soc. One of the founders of the NY Genealogical and Biographical Soc'y, 1869.

Dr. Holcombe was known as "one of the most distinguished physicians in New York and a noted specialist on diseases of the eye and ear." It seems unusual that, as old age approached, his own vision and hearing became impaired. As a result of this, he did not practise his profession or continue his class work at the Universities during the last ten years of his life, though he did continue to treat a few of his older patients. During his time he treated many prominent men--Daniel Webster, Charles Sumner, President Ulysses S. Grant, in whose last illness Dr. Holcombe was called in consultation, and others.

Dr. Holcombe was, without doubt, the best-known Holcombe of any Generation, and this is largely due to his wide correspondence and personal visits with members of the family in all parts of the United States and elsewhere. He had a very pleasing, magnetic personality, a generous nature and courteour manners, was a gentleman in every sense of the word, and was loved by all who knew him. He treated and addressed all Holcombes in a kind, familiar manner; as though they were members of his own household. In appearance he was stately and dignified, greatly resembling the poets William Cullen Bryant and Henry W. Longfellow. That there was a humorous side to his nature many have testified and some of his practical jokes are told by his friends. A correspondent in Iowa writes "He came here in 1888 armed with a horse-pistol to 'kill Indians,' as he supposed there were many of them here." Dr. Holcombe spent a fortune and many years of his time collecting information on the Holcombes, making several trips to England and to many parts of the US for this purpose, and the family owes him a debt of gratitude which can never be paid.

The Barbour Collection of Town records shows he was born on April 2, 1817.
