Samuel Holcombe

b. circa 1773, d. 1855
     Samuel Holcombe was born circa 1773 at Simsbury, Hartford Co., CT.1,2 He was the son of Timothy Holcombe and Elizabeth Griffin. Samuel Holcombe died in 1855 at Greenbrier Co., VA.

Sam'l was enumerated in the 1850 District 18, Greenbrier Co., VA federal census. He was 76 and living alone.

Michael O'Farrell disputes McPherson's claim:

McPherson claims that, in the census of 1850, Samuel Holcomb is enumerated, Greenbrier Co, "as b in Conn, 76 years old". This is in error. The surviving copy of the return clearly shows his birthplace as Virginia, though whether this is correct is another question entirely. McPherson also claims that the 1850 shows Samuel "living as nearest neighbor to Sarah Holcomb" and this too is incorrect. The copy archived on microfilm -- which by the way does not appear to be the original -- actually reads, "Lara Halcom". The name is almost certainly either a misreading, or a mishearing, of Leah Holcomb or some variation thereon. She was the widow of Henry Holcomb -- McPherson's A-4-5-2-3-3-1-3, proven son of Samuel Holcomb -- and the seven children enumerated in her household are assumed to be hers.

This Samuel was dead in Greenbrier Co by May court, 1855, and I find eight proven children:

 1. Hannah (Holcomb) Airy, wife of John
 2. William Holcomb
 3. Nancy (Holcomb) Airy, wife of Anthony
 4. Henry Holcomb
 5. Agness (Holcomb) Kincaid, wife of Lanty
 6. Samuel Holcomb
 7. John Holcomb
 8. Sarah "Sally" (Holcomb) Airy, wife of William

I see no evidence of other children, at least none surviving into adulthood. The order of birth is my best guess, so far. Agness and William were born in Nelson Co, Va, and I assume Nancy and probably Hannah were born there as well. Sally was born in Greenbrier Co. I have not yet determined precisely when this family arrived there, so I am unsure about the other two children. Son Samuel is the ancestor of Jim Schultz above, and Samuel and wife Mary were residents of Winneshiek Co, Iowa, at the time of his father's death. There seems to be no remaining doubts on this matter.

However, as you may have guessed from the above, we must question whether Samuel Holcomb of Greenbrier Co is really a son of Timothy and Elizabeth (Griffin) Holcomb. If you locate Nelson Co, Va, on a map you may get the feeling that Samuel could, at least conceivably, have been a descendant of those other Virginia Holcombes, and unrelated to our Connecticut Holcombes at all. It is at least something that must be considered, probably in light of whatever might be recorded east of the Blue Ridge.

Elizabeth Holcombe1

b. 1777, d. 1863
     Elizabeth Holcombe was born in 1777 at Simsbury, Hartford Co., CT.2,3 She was the daughter of Timothy Holcombe and Elizabeth Griffin. Elizabeth Holcombe married Ezekial Alderman, son of Daniel Alderman and Thankful Griffin, on 17 July 1791 at Greenbrier Co., VA. Elizabeth Holcombe died in 1863.2

Elizabeth and Ezekial moved to that part of Virginia which later became West Virginia, about 1814, and were perhaps the progenitors of a branch of Aldermans now residing in West Virginia who know little about their early ancestry and who have not been able to connect definitely with the other branches of the family. Ezekiel, the younger, was in the American army during the War of 1812 and died in camp at Norfolk, VA. Daniel had issue six boys and three girls; Solomon had issue three boys and four girls; and of the other children of Ezekiel we had learned nothing. 4

It is apparently this Elizabeth buried in the Alderman Cemetery, Marlinton, Pocahontas County, WV. Contributed for use in USGenWeb Archives by Joy Buzzard.
