He was buried at New Ohio Cemetery, North Colesville, Broome Co., NY.

It is probably Carlos enumerated in the 1840 Colesville, Broome Co., NY, federal census as "C" Holcomb. There was one male 15-20, one male 20-30, and one male 40-50; there were 2 females under 5, 2 5-10, 2 10-15, one 15-20, and one 30-40.

There is a tombstone in the New Ohio Cemetery with three names on it. It is probable that they are brothers. Based on the 1840 census, they could be sons of Carlos. They were: Charles who died 10 Febuary 1841 age 24, N.S. who died in Denver City 10 September 18-- age 41, and C.S. who died in Independence Iowa 19 September 1872 age 30.

Eli Holcombe1,2,3,4

b. 3 April 1741, d. 19 March 1823
     Eli Holcombe was born on 3 April 1741 at Granby, Hartford Co., CT.5 He was the son of Lt. David Holcombe and Mehitable Buttolph.5 Eli Holcombe married Hannah Crofut on 10 March 1764 at Danbury, Fairfield Co., CT.6 Eli Holcombe died on 19 March 1823 at Ulster, Bradford Co., PA, at age 81.7,6 He was buried at Ulster Cemetery, Ulster, Bradford Co., PA.8

Their descendants settled on Cash Creek in Ulster, Bradford County, PA in 1793. He was enterprising and early on erected a saw-mill on Cash Creek, which supplied the lumber for the first plank houses in a large section of the county. The saw-mill and corn-mill were in operation about 1795.

Eli and Hannah had children listed in Simsbury Soldiers, Barbour records, and Barkhamstead records.

Wade G. Holcomb, USNR (Ret.) writes:


I have a 1901 reunion report from Bradford County PA. In this document which covers several families, LeRoy and Ulster are in the center of this report. In the LeRoy, PA, grave yard there are many Holcombs from the Eli Holcomb family. Eli and Hannah Crofut Holcomb are buried in Ulster PA several miles away. I have visited Bradford county several times with my camera; several years ago a giant tree dropped on top of Eli and Hannah's graves and the stones are a mess. On a 10-speed bike ride from CT about 1973 I photographed the stones and Eli's DAR monument when they were upright and the tree was still there.


The papers say that Eli took most of his family about 1793 (that part of PA was Connecticut's Western Reserve at that time) and settled there with Sterling, Hugh and many others.


What is now Ulster township was originally a part of Sheshequin, but the latter town was soon of such importance that it was deemed best for Ulster to separate which it early did. It was settled about 1784, and among the settlers of early date may be mentioned Captain Benjamin Clark, Nathaniel Hovey, Adrial Simons, Solomon Tracy, Eli Holcomb, Isaac Cash, Abram Parmeter, Chester Bingham, Thomas Overton, Elijah Granger, Leonard Westbrook, and Joseph C. Powell. Nearly all of these men, if not all have descendants now living in Bradford County. Sometime about 1822 the Scotch emigration commenced, and the familiar names of Mather, Pollock and Dickson are associated with those of the older settlers of which is now prosperous Ulster. (from the Bradford County usgenweb page.)


Eli served in 1775 and received a bounty coat, I have been trying to place him at Bunker Hill for his service in April-June 1775, a few months after Concord and the start of it all.


Additional information on Eli's descendants is from Linda L. Mutzer, gmutzer@bellatantic.net.

Ezekiel Holcombe1,2,3

b. 29 March 1736, d. 23 February 1821
     Ezekiel Holcombe was born on 29 March 1736.4,5 He was the son of Lt. David Holcombe and Mehitable Buttolph. Ezekiel Holcombe married Elizabeth Gillet, daughter of Joseph Gillett and Elizabeth Hayes, circa 1761. Ezekiel Holcombe married Jemima Griffin, daughter of John Griffin and Eleanor Holcombe. Ezekiel Holcombe died on 23 February 1821 at age 84.4

From Carol Laun: Ezekiel was a veterinarian and Revolutionary War Vetran. He was married twice. He lived at 81 Petersen Road in Granby. The house was later torn down by his son James, who built a new house. This house was, in turn, rebuilt by Danish immigrant Peter Peterson in 1902.

Proof of Ezekiel Holcomb’s first marriage to Elizabeth Gillet is found in her mother’s will dated 1805. Elizabeth (Hayes) Gillet left $1 to her grandson Ezekiel Holcomb Jr., the only grandchild mentioned in the will.
6

Some of the information on the line of Ezekiel down to John Noble Holcombe is provided by Wadean Holcombe, 41997 Holcomb Rd., Richland, OR 97870; she cites a family bible held by Dale Holcombe in Bethpage, NY.

Most of the dates for this family come from this bible. It starts with his marriage to Jemima. The Bible calls Jemima and her daughter - Jamime. The bible only lists four childlren - Heman, Jemima, James A. and Phares. Since the bible does not list Susannah in this family, she must have been born prior to 1765 when her mother Elizabeth died. 6
