Dr. Ira Holcombe

b. 1805, d. 24 September 1860
     Dr. Ira Holcombe was born in 1805 at NY. He was the son of Judge John Holcombe and Chloe Mudge. Dr. Ira Holcombe married Esther M. Ewing, daughter of James Ewing and Mary McMillin, on 26 February 1837 at Gallia Co., OH.1 Dr. Ira Holcombe died on 24 September 1860 at Gallia Co., OH.

Ira and Esther made their home in Vinton, where Ira was a physician. They were listed in Huntington Township in the 1840, 1850 and 1860 census. That last year Ira was worth, $1,000 and $350, and all nine of their children were at home.

The 1860s were bad years for Esther. On 24 September 1860 she lost her husband of 23 years. Ira died of consumption. There is no stone marking his resting place, but there is an unmarked grave at Glenn Cemetery, Vinton, Ohio, next to stones of two sons, which could be his.

Then in 1863, son Anselm T. Holcombe died, age 11 years. And when the Civil War came along, Esther sent two sons off, but only one came home, Calvary having died at Summerville, West Virginia of typhoid.

Not long after the war was over, Esther gave it all up and decided to join her sisters, brother and other relatives in Hancock County, Illinois. When she left for Illinois, her four remaining sons went with her, and possibly her two daughters, though nothing is known of them.

Soon after her arrival near the Mississippi River, she met and married Dr. Knott, but he died within a year of two of the marriage.

So there was Esther, alone again. She should have been in the 1870 Hancock County census, but she was not found. Three of Esther's sons were located in the 1870 Hancock County census.

Esther applied for a pension through her son Calvary's war-related death, but she died before receiving anything. According to the postmaster at Burnside, Illinois, her death took place 18 June 1878, and at the time she lived "within a half mile of La Crosse, Illinois." She was 58 years old.
