COLBY JOINS TANK CORPS

(New Jersey Political Reformer Enlists As Private)

(From the New York Sun)


Everett COLBY, pioneer Progressive of New Jersey, has enlisted as a private in the Tank Corps and will leave his home at Llewellyn Park, West Orange, October 1, for Gettysburg, where he will start training.

Essex county has always been mighty proud of Mr. COLBY, even the youngsters on the street know him, and but little was talked about by his friends and neighbors yesterday except that he had given up his extensive law practice, his work as an assistant to Mr. HOOVER, to spread the gospel of food saving to the American people and the pleasures of his social position to do his part in the war.

The first intimation that Mr. COLBY would become a "buck private in the tanks" was dropped by former Mayor Farnham YARDLEY at a meeting of the West Orange Liberty Loan executive committee in the Essex County Country Club Saturday afternoon and later Mr. COLBY modestly confirmed the news, which he had been holding back from his friends for some time.

He is 44 years old. His wife was Miss Edith HYDE, a member of a wealthy Plainfield family. They have two sons and two daughters.

In 1910 he went to England to aid Lloyd George in his campaign.

Mr. COLBY is reputed to be wealthy and his home is one of the show places of Llewellyn Park.

He appeared in the census on 5 JAN 1920 in West Orange, Essex County, New Jersey. He appeared in the census on 29 APR 1930 in West Orange, Essex County, New Jersey. He died on 19 JUN 1943.
Everett, Washington is named after him.

A BRIEF HISTORY OF EVERETT, WASHINGTON

Everett and Snohomish County History

The lush and verdant peninsula at a site named Port Gardner Bay was for centuries home to Native Americans of the Snohomish tribe. Following the Indian Wars in the 1850s, the Snohomish and other local tribes restructured as the confederation known as Tulalip and were moved to a reservation established at Tulalip Bay.

Settlers came to the peninsula in response to government granted homesteads and in hopes of extracting the area's natural resources of timber and ore. Nearby mills such as ones at Port Gamble and Utsalady found this location provided easy access for cutting and transporting timber, and for two decades the area was logged.

More change came in the fall of 1891 when work crews began clearing land to build an industrial boomtown supported, planned and built by wealthy east coast and regional investors who expected this spot to be where the Great Northern Railroad would first touch western tidewater. Named after the son of investor Charles Colby, Everett was planned with a diverse economic base that, in the beginning, included a paper mill, a nail factory, a bargeworks and a smelter to refine ores expected to come from the town of Monte Cristo, located in the Cascade mountains. Lumber and shingle mills began filling in at waterfront sites.

Everett was incorporated in the spring of 1893. Development was scarcely underway when the country plunged into serious depression. Everett's boom was curtailed by the Panic of 1893. During the next five years, many community services such as hospitals, schools and libraries grew and solidified in response to need.

A new economic boom in 1900 solidified Everett's form as an industrial city. By design, Everett set aside most of its waterfront for industry that now included lumber and shingle mills, wood products manufacturers, iron works, shipbuilders, fisheries, and canneries. There was even a brewery and a shoe factory. New expansion coincided with the arrival of immigrants, and the city's population tripled over the next decade, moving from around 8,000 in 1900 to 24,000 in 1910. Though Canadian and German newcomers accounted for the greatest number, the Scandinavian community seemed most cohesive, creating a network of support, often arranging housing and jobs for arriving relatives and friends.

By World War I, Everett was dominated by the lumber-shingle trade, and by the 1920s, the city's importance as a regional and international waterfront port was well established. But problems of extractive industry proved major in an ecological sense, and cities cast in industrial modes found the next decades difficult. Tied to Everett's economic base, Snohomish County was one of the hardest hit counties in the state during the years of the Great Depression. Lumber-shingle predominance eventually gave way to the papermaking era of Weyerhaeuser, Scott and the Lowell Paper Mill, and as the timber economy began to wane regionally, the city welcomed a shift to the arrival of Boeing and aerospace in the 1960s.

Though Boeing was not able to provide the recession proof industry it hoped at its outset, it has remained an important, dominant and stable presence in Everett. The arrival of electronics corporations such as John Fluke Mfg. and Intermec spurred economic growth in the ‘80s but downsizing and layoffs took their toll in the ‘90s.

Everett's past is present today in many buildings and residences that still stand. Restoration and rehabilitation has given new life to older neighborhoods and Everett’s central business district. Structures such as the Monte Cristo Hotel, the Culmback and Krieger buildings, various structures along Hewitt Avenue, several residential areas and the city’s public library and City Hall are examples of successful adaptation of city landmarks. New construction has added a Center for the Performing Arts which takes its place alongside the historic Everett Civic Auditorium and the original Everett Theater.

Today Everett supports a healthy economy, utilizing the pluses of aerospace, telecommunications, computer technology, electronics, health care, tourism, education and government business, the paper products industry of Kimberly-Clark Corporation and numerous small businesses. In the 1990s, government plans for a Navy homeport came to fruition. Though scaled back in size from original plans, the Everett homeport is modern in size and design and commands a prominent place on the city’s waterfront.

Capt. Ezekiel COLBY was born on 15 JUL 1739 in Amesbury, Essex County, Massachusetts. (SOURCE: Early Vital Records of Essex County, Massachusetts to 1850 for Amesbury.)

Captain Ezekiel Colby is described as a yeoman from Newbury who bought his first land in Corinth, Vt from Col. John Taplin on 1 September 1775, one hundred acres for thirty pounds (lot 35 on town plan dated 1790, on what was known as the South Meadow, later to be known as the Elwin Hastings farm). Ezekiel Colby later sold that property to Hezekiah Silloway for three hundred pounds. Ezekiel used the title 'gentleman' on the contract of sale.

Zadock Thompson's "I Gazetteer of Vermont" I (1824) states that the first men to locate in Corenth, Vt were three sugarmakers who came over from Newbury, Vt viz: Ezekiel Colby, John Nutting and John Armond, sent by Col. John Taplin in the spring of 1777 to spend several weeks manufacturing maple sugar. Each carried a five pail kettle (yes - that is what they are called.) as they traveled the twelve miles through the woods, guided by a pocket compass. They joined a number of others who were also making sugar in Corinth, including Ezekiel's future son-in-law Joshua Davis.

The following data on Capt. Ezekiel (6) Colby was provided by Mrs. Carl A. Bickford of Lisbon Falls, Maine.

"CAPT. EZEKIEL COLBY (Nathan, Joseph, John, John, Anthony) b. 15 Jul 1737, Amesbury, MA; Bap Amesbury 22 Jul 1739. m. 1759 Sarah ("Sally") Fowler, b. 21 Jan 1742, South Hampt, NH, dau of Abner and Sarah (Flanders) Fowler; d 10 Aug 1817. Ezekiel d. 7 Dec 1791, Corinth, VT

In the summer of 1777, Ezekiel Colby, from Newbury, began a settlement in Corinth, where his family was soon joined by others. Col. John Taplin and his sons removed thither, and became citizens of influence." (P. 84, History of Newbury, Vermont, From the Discovery of the Coos Country to Present Time, by Prederic P. Wells, In Behalf of the Town (1902). Ezekiel went to Corinth in the spring of 1777 to sugar (maple syrup) off but his in some references in attributed wrongly to his son Ezekiel. The father bought his first land in Corinth 1 Sep 1775 (p. 50 Corinth His.), and he was in Corinth in the 1790 Census. He was a captain in the local militia and began a settlement in the summer of 1777. Ezekiel's widow started selling land in January of 1793. she deeded 40 acres to Joshus Davis. Ezekiel willed sons Nathan, Hezekiah, Moses, Ezekiel, John, Abner and Henry six acres each and daughters Sarah Silloway, Hannah Noris and Mary Noyes were given three acres each (p. 101 Corinth His.)

Birth records have not been found for the children of Ezekiel and Sarah (Fowler) Colby. The following list has been put together from the DAR application of Joyce Lynn Page and other sources, and a continuing effort is being made to obtain further information on these children.

"Since typing above, I have ascertained that Captain Ezekiel Colby died without a will. His wife was appointed administratrix, and the estate was declared insolvent. The estate papers show that Captain Colby's debts exceeded his assets, which I assume is why the estate was declared insolvent. The lands stated to have been willed to the sons in the History of Corinth must actually have been deeded to them by Captain Colby's widow." Colby Clan News Letter.

Ezekiel Colby Took His Own Life by Hanging.
It is evident that Ezekiel had trouble with his mind and his health the last few years of his life. His son, Charles had died on December 27, 1855, and his wife, Tabitha died November 12, 1869. It appears that on April 18, 1883, at about ten o'clock in the morning, he was in the house and spoke of feeling hungry and ate a lunch. The family, who were in the garden, supposed he had gone to his room to rest, as was his custom.

It seems that he went to the barn, cut a piece from a ¾" rope, went up on the scaffold an tied his feet together. He then put the rope around his neck, fastening it with a slipknot and passed the other end around a beam just above his head , thence around a brace and securely tied it to rope below the beam, giving about one foot of slack rope. Thus prepared, he had only to step off from the scaffold. He was discovered about noon. He was survived by his son, Hiram and his daughter, Martha Colby Thompson.

Parents: John COLBY and Susannah WEBSTER.

Spouse: Tabitha SMITH. Ezekiel COLBY and Tabitha SMITH were married on 2 FEB 1825 in Franklin, Merrimack County, New Hampshire. Children were: Charles COLBY, Hiram COLBY, Infant COLBY, Martha A. COLBY.
