GEORGE L. COLBY DIED MONDAY

George Lyman Colby passed away Monday afternoon at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Karl H. Walbridge, 60 Webster Street. His health had been fail during the past four months. He was 82 years of age.

The deceased was born in Berlin, Vt., on October 15th, 1851, a son of the late Stephen Benjamin and Eliza Smith Colby. Both of his parents had died before he was 12 years of age. As a young man he learned the carriage builder's trade and at a time when carriages were assembled and completely built in carriage shops. He followed this line of work until the business of carriage building changed from the shop idea to factory production. Then he turned to carpentry and followed this work for many years, usually being engaged with some contractor. He was an expert mechanic.

On Oct 19, 1876, he was united in marriage with Alice Dorothy Harran. Most of their married life was spent at Montpelier, Vt. Two daughters were born to this union: Allie, who later became Mrs. Joseph L. Pierce. of Montpelier, and Lena, who became Mrs. Karl H. Walbridge of Malone. Mrs. Pierce passed away about three years ago.

About a year following the death of his wife, she passed away on May 1, 1910, Mr. Colby came to Malone to make his home with Mr. and Mrs. Walbridge and has since resided here.

The deceased was a regular attendant at the Baptist Church here. He was a man of a retiring disposition, a prolific reader and one who maintained as active interest in the affairs of the world almost up to the time of his death. Until afflicted with the sufferings of his last illness he found a deep enjoyment in reading and in the company of a circle of neighborhood friends whose acquaintanceship he valued highly.

Mr. Colby had two brother, Charles and Stephen, the latter of whom died in youth. His brother Charles passed away five or six years in California.

Surviving are his daughter, Mrs. K. H. Walbridge wife of village clerk Walbridge of Malone, nine grandchildren and five great grandchildren.

Parents: Stephen Benjamin COLBY and Eliza SMITH.

Spouse: Alice Dorothy HARMON. George Lyman COLBY and Alice Dorothy HARMON were married on 19 OCT 1876 in Vermont. Children were: Allie COLBY, Lena COLBY.


George M. COLBY was born on 2 JUL 1831 in Granby, Oswego County, New York. (SOURCE: Family Bible of Daniel Colby and Elizabeth Singer.) He appeared in the census in 1860 in Woodhull, Shiawassee County, Michigan. He appeared in the census in 1870 in Woodhull, Shiawassee County, Michigan. He died on 15 MAR 1910 at Michigan. He was buried in the Oak Plain Cemetery at Shaftsburg, Shiawassee County, Michigan George M. COLBY, a prominent and wellknown resident of Woodhulll Township, Shiawassee County, was born in Granby Township, Otsego County, N. Y., July 2, 1831. His father, Daniel D. Colby, a native of New York State, was born in 1799 and his grandfather William, a native of New Hampshire, was born in 1760. He enlisted the Revolutionary War when sixteen years old and served through the whole period of conflict, carrying to his grave a British bullet which he received at the battle of Monmouth. He was a pensioner of the Government until the day of his death. He carried on a farm of some seventy-five acres, was the father of eight sons and three daughter, and added to this number one adopted daughter. In his later years he was an earnest and devoted member of the Methodist Church. His wife died in 1835 and he survived until 1847. The family is of Irish descent and their original ancestor came to this country in Colonial times.

The father of our subject owned the homestead farm but sold it in 1836 and bought a farm in Oswego County, seven miles from Oswego City. In early life he was a Presbyterian and later a Methodist. He was a man of strict integrity and always religiously inclined. His death occurred in 1883 when he was eighty-four years old. Like his father he was a Democrat but after the breaking out of the war he became a Republican. He held the office of Justice of the Peace and was considered a Justice of more than usual ability, frequently trying cases from Oswego City. The wife of Daniel Colby was Elizabeth Singer, a sister of Isaac M. Singer, the inventor of the Singer Sewing machine. She was born in Rensselaer County, N. Y. in 1802. Eight boys and four girls completed the number of her children, all of whom she had the happiness of rearing to mature years.

They were James S., Edwin R., Eleanor M., (Mrs. Mason), Polly A., (Mrs. Place), Elizabeth., (Mrs. Erwin), George M., Archelaus A., John, Lydia E., (Mrs., Dean), William D., Charles C. and Ernest B. She was in early life a Presbyterian and later a Methodist, and was beloved and respected by all who knew her for her sterling Christian character and real goodness of heart. She and her husband had the great happiness of celebrating their golden wedding, December 4, 1869, since which time she has passed away. Adam Singer, the maternal grandfather of our subject, was of German descent and as far as known was a native of New York State. His father, the ancestor of this family, came to New York from Germany, and was a millwright and carpenter. He used to tell about being behind the redoubts during the Revolutionary War. He built many mills in New York and Ohio and in other States and died in New York in 1856 after completing his four-score years. Our subject was reared upon the farm and educated in the district school, and although he worked out some before reaching his majority he really began life for himself at that time. He came to Michigan in 1853, journeying by boat to Niagara then took cars to Buffalo, boat to Detroit and cars again to Dexter. He made his first home at Pinckney, where he had a brother living, but after a year and a half there he came to Shiawassee County. He was married July 31, 1855 to Rachael VanRiper, who was born in Lodi Township, Washtenaw County, February 18, 1835.

The parents of Mrs. Colby were Andrew J. and Catherine (Dubois) VanRiper, the former, born in New Jersey and the latter in Ulster County, N. Y. They became early pioneers of Washtenaw County, settling there in 1831, while Michigan was still a young territory. After doing much to subdue the land in their new home they moved to Shiawassee County in May, 1847, and made a farm here. Mr. VanRiper owned four hundred acres here besides giving each of his four children a generous tract of land. He was a hard worker, a Democrat in politics and a Presbyterian in religion. He died here in September, 1888, when eighty-three years old,. His faithful and devoted wife had preceded him to the other world in 1876, when she was seventy-four years old.

Mr. and Mrs. George M. Colby have been blessed with seven children, but have also been sorely bereaved, having lost all but two of these children in early infancy. The two surviving are Catherine E. who married Enoch Carl, living on a farm in Woodhull Township, and is the mother of one child, Hazel, and Charles M., who yet resides at home but has eighty acres of his own land. Charles M. is very ingenious and can turn his hand to any work presented to him. When our subject took the farm upon which he now lives it had no improvements upon it., and he built a log-house which at that time was considered the best in the township. He used to keep a good many travellers who would come in at all times of the night. He built his barn in 1866 and the house in which he now lives in 1880. He carries on mixed farming on his estate.

Mr. Colby is a Democrat in his political principles and affiliations and has held some minor township offices. He is now Deputy Sheriff and was Assessor for this school district for over twenty years. He is agent for the Shiawassee Mutual Insurance Company, also for the Niagara Company of New York and the Fire and Marine Company of Detroit. He also does collecting. His is a member of the Grange, belongs to the Patrons of Industry, and is connected with the Masonic Lodge at Williamston, Ingham County. He is a fine man and his good qualities and enterprise make him known favourably throughout all this region. A view of the pleasant homestead of Mr. Colby is represented on another page. Parents: Daniel D. COLBY and Elizabeth SINGER.

George P. COLBY was born on 6 JAN 1848 in Pike, Wyoming County, New York. He appeared in the census on 16 JUL 1860 in Forestville, Fillmore County, Minnesota. (living at home with father and mother.) He appeared in the census on 27 JUN 1870 in Forestville, Fillmore County, Minnesota. (living at home with father and mother.) He died in 1933 at Cassadaga, Volusia County, Florida.
Cassadaga, a Seneca Indian word meaning "rocks beneath the water" was established as a Spiritualist community by George P. Colby in 1894. Born in New York in 1848, Colby was told during a seance that he would someday be instrumental in founding a Spiritualist community in the South. That prophecy was fulfilled in 1875 when Colby was led through the wilderness of central Florida by his spirit guide "Seneca" to the future site of Cassadaga. Colby and the followers who joined him at Cassadega belonged to the American Spiritualist Association, a movement that sought to foster communication with spirits and encouraged people to develop their psychic abilities. The movement was founded in the 1840s in Chautauqua County, New York, and eventually spread nationwide.

In the South, groups of Spiritualists began searching for a site in Florida where they could establish a resort community where Spiritualists from across the country could congregate during the winter. Colby offered them the Florida property he had homesteaded and in January, 1895, he deeded over 35 acres to the newly incorporated Southern Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp Meeting Association. The word "camp" appeared in the organization's name because at the time it meant an annual gathering of religious groups. There are no actual camping facilities at Cassadaga today.

The Spiritualists were only one of several religious groups to establish Florida communities in the late nineteenth century. Florida appealed to many people because of its relatively untouched landscape, and to religious practitioners as a tropical "Garden of Eden" where they could freely express themselves and develop communities dedicated to their needs. Settlements by the Shakers and the Koreshan Unity were established in the same year as Cassadaga but failed to survive, owing in part to the utopian goals of the organizations' members. Cassadaga is one of the few religious communities founded in Florida during the 1890s to remain in existence to the present day.

-------------------------------------
Cassadaga's founder, George Colby, was born in nearby Pike Alleghany County. In 1858 young Colby was told by a medium that he would one day travel from the North to the South and establish a center for Spiritualists. Colby's family were Baptists. They were dismayed as young Colby pursued an interest in Spiritualism and became a practicing medium when he was19.

The prediction was fulfilled 1875 when a TB suffering, 27 year old Colby traveled to Florida on the advise of spirit guides. "The foundation of Cassadaga's discovery was the profound healing of George Colby," says Hines Bengtson. "He had TB as a young man. He lived to be over 80 years old." Colby's records reveal that he traveled to Florida in part to be healed of his disease. They traveled by rail from Wisconsin to Jacksonville Florida. That is where the rails ended in those days. From there the group traveled by boat on the St. John's River to a Blue Springs Landing.

Colby tromped through unpathed woods until he came upon the land which is now Cassadaga. There he began a regiment of drinking spring water and inhaling pine smoke to be cured of his TB. On June 21, 1880 Colby filed a homestead claim on 74.44 acres. Part of the claim was granted on March 28, 1884. It became home of the 57 acre Southern Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp Association. In 1894 Colby started the camp. It is the oldest continuously active religious community in the Southeastern U.S. In1994 Cassadaga was added to the National Register of Historic Places as a Historic District by the federal government. Colby lived in Cassadaga and New Smyrna Beach until his death on July 27, 1933 at the age of 85.

Hoover explains that Colby's discovery of Cassadaga was the discovery of a place where the spirit plane and earth plane are unusually close. Hoover says is on a "portal" which is an ethereal energy vortex. "When people come here for the first time they say they sense a change in atmosphere," he says. "Cassadaga sits on a portal to different dimensions in yourself and the spirit."
