My great great grandfather James NEWCOMB was born in Ireland in 1838.  He died in 1864 possibly in Missouri and during the Civil War.  I am curious if he was a soldier.  His wife, Mary BOYLE was born in Galway Ireland in 1841 and died 1920 in Barnum, Minnesota.  Their daughter, Catherine NEWCOMB was born 1861 in St. Louis, Missouri and died 1919 in Barnum, Minnesota.  Thank you.  jboler@usfalcon.com

Regarding John W. NEWCOM, Stockbridge Indian,

A Feb. 6, 1826 petition from assorted Stockbridge Chiefs and Warriors, states that NEWCOM was twenty years old at the time (thus born in 1806), the son of Englishman Newcomb Dodridge and his wife, Stockbridge Indian "Sarah".
Does anyone know if this is "Newcomb Doddridge" or "Doddridge NEWCOMB"?
If it is Doddridge Newcomb, was this Sarah, the "Thompson" Doddridge Newcomb married ?

The only spouse I've found for Doddridge Newcomb was _____ Thompson.  No first name is given.  Her Father was Isaac Thompson. No other information is known about her Father.

"spouse" Thompson and Doddridge Newcomb had five children: Harmony, Lucius, Sophia, Jerusha, and "Son".  Harmony Newcomb married Marcus Snow. 3. Lucius was born about 1793. His occupation was a Trader. He was living in an insane asylum, in 1862 in Columbus Ohio. He was unmarried as of 1874.  Sophia was born in 1796. She died May 4, 1872 in Enfield, CT.  Jerusha was born February 23, 1799.  She married Matthew Sutcliff, November 29, 1838.  There is no information about (Son) Newcomb.

Hello, I just stumbled on your website while doing a search for the Newcombe surname and was surprised to find a tid bit of information mentioning Henry Newcombe and Elizabeth Newcombe.  My Grandfather has traced our geneology back to Henry Newcombe and shows Elizabeth Newcombe as his direct descendant, though I'm not sure how reliable my sources are.  The year that I have associated with her is 1619, and her husband John Mease May - 1615.  That is the only information I have regarding the both of them.  My grandfather is a May.  I would certainly welcome any additional information you have regarding the Newcombe family. Thank you. Jennifer Hamp jsmith9918@hotmail.com May 26, 2006

My name is Joseph Michael Newcomb I am from Pittston Pa 18640 . I don't know alot about the Newcomb's of this area but at one time we ran a popular coal business in the area. My grandfather started with ice and moved into the coal industry. He was William Newcomb from West Pittston Pa. My father and his two brothers took over the business in the 40;s or 50's and it was called Newcomb Brothers coal. My father was William his brothers were John and Joseph. It was very successful until the late 60's when difference of opinions broke the busines up. After this the family fell

My name is Marilyn & I live in CA.  I have a book on the Godfrey's of MI which lists a line of descent from the Newcomb family.
Here is the inf. and do you know if the lines are correct?
Here is the line of Mary Newcomb & her male ancestors going back to Maine to 1640 & Devonshire, England to Lt. Andrew NEWCOMB, as recorded in the Godfrey book of family of Elisha Godfrey & Hannah Reynolds by Robert B. Godfrey in 1987.  Perhaps the earlier generations of NEWCOMB's will help you out in your NEWCOMB research

This generation # 5 of Thomas Godfrey & Meriam ? are the line I am searching for in MI-brother of Thomas, Elisha & Hannah (Reynolds) Godfrey are well documented.

5.  Thomas Godfrey (son of Mary Newcomb & Richard Godfrey) & Mariam/Meriam/Marian unknown of Batavia, Genesee County, NY.  Thomas Godfrey died before 1820, "Meriam" Godfrey listed as widow.  Also noted in Holland Land Records with other brothers & their wives of Mary Newcomb & Richard Godfrey.
4.  Mary Newcomb, b. 1751, in Truro.  Married Richard Godfrey, s/o Thomas Godfrey & Bethia Eldredge.  They had:  Elisha Godfrey who m. Hannah Reynolds (they settled in IN & Kent, Co, MI), Thomas Godfrey who m. Mariam/Meriam/Marian spellings vary per records in Batavia, Genesee Co., NY (I believe this is my line); Richard Godfrey m. Elizabeth Brownhill & Newcomb (spellings vary-Nucom/Newcom, etc) who m. Lucinda unknown.  They also most likely had many daughters, none recorded to my knowledge, only the 4 sons.
3.  Joseph & Mary [Eldredge] NEWCOMB--I have their hx.
2.  Thomas Newcomb, born 1668 in or near Kittery, York County, Maine.  Son of Lt. Andrew & Sarah (?) Newcomb.  Thomas Newcomb married Elizabeth Cooke (d/o Josiah & Deborah [Hopkins] Cooke) in Oct. 1693.  Eliz. Cooke born June 1674 in Eastham.  Their children:

We are descendents of Andrew NEWCOMB. We are trying to join the Mayflower Society; our line of descent comes down through our NEWCOMBs when Thankful FREEMAN married Ebenezer NEWCOMB in 1738. From (1) Ebenezer NEWCOMB our line is  (2) David NEWCOMB, 1738/39 - 1824  (3) Hezekiah NEWCOMB 1767 - 1826  (4) Ferrett NEWCOMB 1814 -1899 m. Ebenezer Hamlin TREAT  (5) Esther Caroline TREAT 1850 - 1919 m. Wayland NEWELL  (6) Ora E. NEWELL 1877 - 1909 m. Ambrose RICE   We are having no trouble finding "proofs" back to Ferret NEWCOMB, but we are having a problem finding civil records etc. proving that Hezekiah NEWCOMB (#3) was the son of David NEWCOMB (#2).  Are there any other descendents of David NEWCOMB or Hezekiah NEWCOMB who would know if there exists any probate or Bible records showing Hezekiah as David's son?

I am looking for a Mary Newcomb born in TN abt 1822.  She was married to John Butler 12 Sept 1836 in Maury Co.

I've "rescued" an old photograph of Jeannette UPHAM which was taken at a studio in Massachusetts.  The photograph was probably taken in the 1870's with Jeannette appearing to be about 3 years old at the time. The location and name of the photography studio is difficult to read on the back of the photograph, however, I believe it may have been taken in New Bedford, MA.

Based on limited research I believe that this is a photograph of Jeannette Lynde UPHAM b. 7 June 1874 at New Bedford, MA to parents Freeman UPHAM and Sarah J. BROWN.  Jeannette later married George Leonard NEWCOMB on June 21st 1904 at New Haven, Connecticut.  It appears that the family may have also lived in Melrose, MA at some point in time.

I'm hoping to locate someone from this family so that this wonderful old photograph can be returned to the care of family.  If you are a member of
this family or know someone who might be, please contact me. Thanks, Shelley familia@sprintmail.com January 2, 2005

1930 census their name was spelled Newcombe. Their children were Jessie Blount, Jim Henry, Lilly Mae, Lee Ashley Edward, Riby Louise, Louis Henry, John William, Eugene Clayton, Essie Mae, James Milford and Thenie Ann. I know that Lilly Mae, Louis Henry and Thenie Ann died as infants or children.

From very cold Hamilton, Ontario. I hope you may have some information on Joseph NEWCOMBE  born 1847 in Exbourne. I believe his father was James.  This gentleman is important to me because he married my great grandmother Susannah DASHPER  from Tavistock Devon. Joseph was a tin miner and farm labourer and they moved back and forth from the Okehampton area to Mary Tavy. They were married in Mary Tavy in 1876, were in Bow in 1881, Sampford Courtney in 1891 and on the 1901 census he was registered in Mary Tavy and Bow. Susanna had an illegitimate son in 1866 who was my grandfather-Daniel DASHPER.  He never stayed with the Newcombes and came to Canada after 1881. I want to trace Susanna and Joseph's children-William James born 1877 and John 1878.  Their daughter Mary Elizabeth died in Tavistock-Mary Tavy in 1906. Sorry to be long winded here but hope all this may ring a bell.  Please contact at: lindaetty@hotmail.com. February 1, 2004

I have a letter from a”Curly”to his sister Charlott A. Newcomb of Indian Orchard, Hampden County, Mass. It is a “war letter” and is dated Dec 16th, 1863. It was among the personal effects of my mother who told me years
ago that the Newcombs were connected to her own ancestry. Curly was apparently in a Mass. Infantry regiment and the events he describes are connected to the siege of Vicksburg, Miss. in 1863. He spells his sister’s name Charlott rather than Charlotte, which could be a clue. Is there anyone out there who has a possible connection with these folks ? Hope to hear from soon.

NEWCOMB(E) and Philochia ) Clark. I very recently came across some information (thanks to Ken Newcombe) that may suggest that my ggg-grandfather, Henry B.
