========================================================

He appeared in the census on 7 JUN 1900 in Loup, Cherry County, Nebraska. He died on 20 NOV 1922 at Spokane, Spokane County, Washington. He has Ancestral File Number 18GS-506.
Clarence Enos Colby was born a few miles south of Plainfield, on the farm of his grandfather Colby, who had built the fine old home in 1843. Up the road was another brick house, the home of his grandfather Ayers. And west a mile or so on the edge of the hill, a third old place, built in 1830, roomy like the others. "Uncle Jim" lived there.

High on the hillside, that lovely old house looked to the west, to the mountains and the sloping green fields fenced by hand-gathered rock. The place was for sale. Clarence’s father bought it, moved his family there, and there he reared his children.

Boyhood on a Vermont farm could teach rough lessons and Clarence knew hard work, but there were plenty of good times, good neighbors, aunts and uncles, cousins, and much jollity, with church on Sunday and prayer meeting during the week.

Schooling in those days, in that region, had to be irregular. The boys were needed in farmwork, the girls in housework. Yet there was great respect for education and the parents did their best by the children. After country school and village school, Clarence went to Montpelier for as many terms at the Seminary as could be managed. He would finish a term, then work on the farm, and work on other farms to earn money for another term in school. All of the children regarded schooling as a great privilege.

On March 17, 1869, according to his diary, Clarence was buying canvas for another oil painting in classwork on Seminary Hill. May 4, he was bargaining for a frame for his eagle picture and paid $2.50. But he was then nearing 22 years of age, which in those times was considered beyond the age of youth. He did not return to school that fall, and on Tuesday, December 14, of the same year, he wrote: "Started for the West at 4 p.m., arrived at Burlington about 6, and left for Troy about 9 p.m." Two days later he reached Chicago.

He lived in and around Chicago during the next four and a half years, visiting relatives, seeing the country, earning his keep by working as an apprentice carpenter, and in general having a real experience. One year he worked for a Mr. Russell, rebuilding in Chicago after the great fire of October 8-10, 1871.

He had made friends. One in particular, Miss Josephine M. Keeve, lived at 11 Cornell Street in Chicago.

Clarence Enos Colby married Josephine Marie Keeve, daughter of John Keeve who was born April 12, 1829, Lincolnshire, England, and Judith Marie Simpson, born in Ireland, daughter of William Barton Simpson.

They honeymooned by boating up Lake Michigan into Lakes Huron, Erie, and Ontario, visited Niagara Falls, traveled up the St. Lawrence through the Thousand Islands, packed off from Ogdensburg to cross Lake Champlain into Vermont, and so back to the village of Plainfield, where Clarence brought his bride home to the old brick house on the hill.

The autumn of 1875 especially held promise, for Clarence and his wife were expecting a child. She arrived January 3, 1876. They named her Sarah Mabel Colby, and she had scarcely made her presence felt when her brother arrived December 14 of the same year, and was named Burton Enos Colby. A second son was born July 12, 1878, Arthur Lane Colby. The old New England home once more rang with children’s laughter. It must have gladdened the grandmother’s heart. She had lost father, husband, and daughter within three and a half years. Julia had died June 30, 1877.

Eddie, the youngest brother in the home, was now past 21 years of age and had proven capable and adept with the farm. Walter had gone West. Burton and his wife and children were in Iowa. Clarence began to consider following their example. Accordingly, in the year 1879, he and Josie with their three little ones made the journey west and settled on a farm near Alta, Iowa. The home was next door to a little country cemetery and the children had fascinating, though forbidden, play among the gravestones. They put pennies on the railroad track across the field. They listened to thunder-storms. Little Burt thought the thunder sounded as if God had dropped some plates.

The town of Alta being small, offered limited opportunity for Clarence’s work as a carpenter. The family decided to move near a bigger place and settled on a farm just south of Madison, South Dakota.

There was a small lake near the farm, and from the kitchen door one could see the white sailboats on the water. In a few years the older boys, Burt, Art, and John, 12, 10, and 8 years of age, were able to help with the field work. The soil was good and the crops good, also, in years when there was sufficient rain. But times were very hard. The country was in a depression. Money was scarce, and work scarce, too.

There were days when Clarence and Josephine were not sure where staple food such as flour, sugar, tea, and the like, would come from. Clarence worked on the farm and also followed his trade as carpenter in the town of Madison, but there was seldom enough money to clothe the large family adequately. Finally, in the year 1889, he and a friend, A. H. Marsland, decided to try for work in Denver, Colorado. They spent the better part of a year there and were able to send home enough cash to provide for their families, but a man’s hand was needed on the farm, so early in 1890 Clarence returned home.

He did not leave again until July 5, 1894, when he set forth to commence on a new venture, working as a carpenter and teacher of carpentry on the U. S. Indian Reservation at Rosebud, in the southwestern part of the State, some 250 to 300 miles from his home. There, he spent the next four years, only occasionally getting home for brief visits, but it was steady work, and he was supporting his family. He enjoyed the experience immensely; felt a great respect for the Indians, and developed a keen interest in their handicraft and artistry. He gradually acquired a sizeable collection of Indian bead and leather work. Some of these pieces he sent to relatives as gifts, for he treasured them and felt that others would.

Clarence continued at the Reservation from 1894 through 1897, but all the while he was deeply concerned because Josephine and the boys were having to run the farm as best they could in his absence. It was not a good situation. On the other hand, in Nebraska, just over the line from Rosebud, there was land available for homesteading in Cherry County. He wrote to Josephine about it, and after due consideration it was decided to sell the farm and move to Nebraska.

The family left Madison, South Dakota in a covered wagon on June 26, 1898. Their destination was Goose Creek, about thirty miles southwest of Woodlake.

The wagon was hauled by a small team of horses called Dolly and Dan and one saddle horse. A family of nine children traveled in the wagon. When they came to a hill everyone except the mother and four year old Clarence would get out of the wagon and help push it up the hill.

Clarence and the children, May, Burt, and Art, who were all old enough to take up homesteads of a quarter-section (160 acres) each. Of that period, Josephine wrote to relatives in Vermont: "This is a lonesome country. Low hills and bunch grass and hay flats are all you can see. Sandy, but excellent for cattle. We are living in primitive fashion. It is quite a change from my home in Chicago and I get homesick sometimes.

Clarence continued working at Rosebud, but finally in 1903 he had to leave due to failing health. In 1907 he traveled west to Spokane for a visit with two daughters who had settled there. He also visited friends on the Pacific coast. What he saw of the west impressed him, and although he returned to Nebraska, it was only to settle his affairs and make plans. By 1910, Josephine, their daughter Alice and son Clarence were on their way to Spokane, arriving there December 21st of that year. Clarence was blessed with quite good health in the remaining twelve years of his life, and enjoyed the leisure which he so richly deserved. He had attained the age of 75 years, five months, and 15 days when on November 20, 1922, death came.

He was a gentle man who carried with him to the last a quality of the hills of home, those scenes of "Old Vermont" – the loving memories of a devoted wife – the respect and admiration of his large family, and an enviable reputation for honesty and integrity.

Josephine died fourteen months later.
