Isaac was working as a carpenter in Middleton when he married Lucy Berry. After a brief residence in Danvers, Mass., they moved to Hampstead village. The land records of Rockingham county show that "Isaac Colby, wheelwright, purchased from Daniel Kimball, blacksmith, for $850, on Dec 29, 1804, a tract of land partly in Hampstead and partly in Londonderry, containing by estimation forty acres, more or less, and bounded as follows, viz.: Beginning at a stake and stone on the southerly side of the road leading from Hampstead to Chester, and by land of Joseph Brickett, thence southwesterly by said Brickett's land 160 rods to a road leading to Londonderry, thence northerly by said road about 40 rods to land of Jabez Hoit, thence northwesterly by said Hoit's land, about 160 rods, to the aforesaid road, thence southeasterly by the road about 40 rods to the bound first mentioned."

The place thus described was the family home for the next seven years.

In 1811, Oct 28, Isaac Colby bought of Thomas Huse, for $4500, Governor's Island, in Island Pond, and the old Wentworth mansion thenceforth was the home of the family, until he deeded the island to Lucy Everett, of Boston, Mass., Sept 8, 1815.

The Colbys then moved to what is now known as Herrick farm and mill, between Derry Dock and Island Pond, which previously had been owned by the father (David, 2d), and the grandfather (David, 1st), of Isaac Colby, and there they dwelt until 1846.

Isaac Colby, though a wheelwright and farmer, was best known in the region as a builder, and according to tradition framed many of the best houses in Hampstead street and in East Derry, one of the last in the latter village being that known as the "Elms Hotel.."

His wife having became a member of the Congregational church, Sept 2, 1810, and having five children baptized in the church May 6, 1812, the family apparently worshipped in Hampstead until 1833, At that time Mrs. Lucy (Berry) Colby was dismissed from the church to the First Church at East Derry, with which church her daughter Lucy united in 1831, her son, James Knight, in 1833, and her son, George W., in 1838.

In 1846, when the infirmities of age led Isaac Colby and his wife to give up the management of the farm and mill (now Herrick) to the son, George Washington, they went to live, after a short stay in Boston, with their son, James K. Colby, in St. Johnsbury, Vt.

Isaac Colby joined the Congregational church by profession of faith, July10. 1853. The few remaining years of their lives were spent peacefully and happily in the home of their son.

Lucy Berry Colby died after a brief illness, Nov 7, 1854, aged 76 years. She was surrounded by her daughter Lucy, her sons, Nathaniel and James K., and when the latter asked her, shortly before her death, if she would like to recover, she replied, "No, why should I? I have lived to a gold old age," and then bolstered up in bed, surprised all by singing the verse beginning, "Fly swift around, ye wheels of time."

Isaac Colby died March 24, 1856, in his 80th year. The bodies of both Isaac Colby and his wife were buried in the Colby lot in the Mt. Pleasant Cemetery in St. Johnsbury, Vt., where are also interred the bodies of their sons Nathaniel B. and James K. Colby, and their wives.

The church records in Hampstead contain in the records of baptism the following entry, made while the Colby family dwelt in the Wentworth mansion on Governor's Island: "Nathaniel Baree (should be Berry), Jesse Hoyt, Allen, Lucy, and James Knight (known as James Kelsea Colby in his mature years, but evidently receiving his name from their family physician, Dr. James Knight).

Isaac Jr. witnessed a deed of his fathers in 1810 [HillsDeeds91:424]. He may be the Isaac who graduated from Dartmouth medical school in 1817. Isaac was a physician in Hopkinton and Salem, Mass. The three children of his first marriage are buried in the Old Cemetery near the Town Hall in Hopkinton Village.

"Isaac Colby, a former physician of Hopkinton, is said to have come here from Bradford, about 1825, and, about 1849, to have gone to Salem, MA. He afterwards returned to Concord, where he died. While in Hopkinton, he practiced allopathy; subsequently, he adopted homeopathy. He did much to improve the appearance of Hopkinton village, being specially instrumental in setting the present row of elms within the Main street and running from the townhouse to the Baptist church."

CAPTAIN ISAAC COLBY

One of the oldest, best known and most highly respected residents of St. Clair county, Michigan is Capt. Isaac Colby of Algonac. He was born in Hillsborough, New Hampshire, October 28, 1820 (Note: should be 1826), his parents being William and Sarah (Clogston) Colby. They were of ancient New England stock, the father having been born in Boston, in 1804, and the mother in Goffstown, New Hampshire, in 1806. The Colby family moved from Boston to New Hampshire, where William Colby grew to manhood, married, settled down in life and there his children were born. They were tillers of the soil, but as that occupation was not profitable among the bleak and barren hills of New Hampshire, the family was neither rich nor affluent. In early life William Colby was a Democrat, but after the organization of the Republican party he affiliated with is and continued to vote that ticket while he lived. Eight children were born to William and Sarah Colby, two of whom died in infancy. Of the six who lived and grew to manhood, three, William, Matthew and Timothy are now dead. Those living are Isaac, Charles E., a resident of Detroit, and Andrew J., who resides in San Francisco. William Colby was a member of the Universalist church and a firm believer in its broad and liberal doctrines. He was able to provide well for his family, giving each of his children the advantage of a fair education and assisting them in starting out in life for themselves.

The early years of the life of Isaac Colby were spent amidst the freedom of the New England hills. At the age of fourteen years, after he had acquired some knowledge of letters and books, he went to Waltham, Massachusetts, and there became skilled as a merchant tailor. For a number of years he traveled about the country as a journeyman tailor, remaining only a few years in each place. He was three years at Hopkinston, New Hampshire, then went to Manchester, for two years; from there to Brattleborough, Vermont, where he remained three years; next to Albany, New York, for two years; then came westward and about the year 1852 settled in West Detroit, Michigan. His travels through the country and work in the different localities had thoroughly skilled him in his calling and given him a satisfactory knowledge of life and of human nature. He took a broad, comprehensive view of the world and its people, and, though liberal in his views, he was ardent and aggressive in the advocacy of any cause he espoused. When the war of the Rebellion broke out it found in him an enthusiastic supporter of the Lincoln administration and of the Union. Abandoning his needle, bench and goose, the erstwhile tailor turned his attention to the raising of troops for the war. He was no long in enrolling about two hundred of the stalwart youths of eastern Michigan and was soon much gratified by the receipt, from Governor Blair, of a commission as captain of Company E, Fourth Regiment Michigan Volunteer Infantry. Much of the time, however, he was in command of three companies. A member of his command, John B. Bradley, had a brief but decisive experience with a rebel sharpshooter. The latter had ensconced himself in a tree not a great distance away from the location of Captain Colby’s command, and was picking off the men with a precision and regularity worthy of a better cause. Bradley’s sharp eyes located him in his leafy quarters and with a well-directed shot he sent him toppling to the ground. He then walked over to where the rebel lay weltering in blood, found him dead and quickly relieving him of his possessions, shouldered his musket and returned to his command amidst the cheers of his comrades. The command of Captain Colby was not always in touch with the commissary department and frequently was left dependent upon its own resources for supplies. On many occasions he and his men were detailed on foraging expeditions, wherein they were expected to supply the wants of the entire regiment and so often were they assigned to duty of this kind that they became quite expert at the business, very little escaping them in the way of eatables on the plantations they visited. They were located for a length of time at various points in Alabama, among them at Whittsburg and Huntsville. During its entire service the Fourth Michigan Infantry acquitted itself most creditably. At one time Captain Colby was given by General Granger his choice of three important points that were to be held and guarded, the most important being Crow Creek, Alabama. This was chosen by Captain Colby, and he held it in spite of the repeated attacks of the enemy. The regiment was later transferred from Alabama to Memphis, Tennessee, and at the close of the war was mustered out.

At the close of hostilities Captain Colby returned to Michigan and settled in Detroit. He was united in marriage to Mrs. Hannah (Smoot) Fleming, and they had five children, three of whom are dead. Sarah F. is the wife of Capt. H. C. Harrow, of Algonac; Mary, deceased, was the wife of George Fisher, a merchant tailor. The present Mrs. Colby, to whom the Captain was married April 6, 1892, was Miss Hannah Allison, a native of England, and reared in Sandwich, Ontario, who had resided in Michigan about ten years previous to her marriage. She had learned telegraphy in Canada and had charge of the office at Sandwich for thirteen years. In his early manhood Captain Colby was a Democrat; that, however, was before the organization of the Republican party, and during and since the war he has been quite active in politics, affiliating with the Republican party. He is a member of the Universalist church and a firm believer in the broad and liberal teachings of that denomination. He was ever kind, generous and charitable all his life, a man who readily made friends and had little difficulty in keeping them. He is a member of the G. A. R., being elected commander of Harvey Tucker Post when past eighty years old, and loves to meet and talk with the few old comrades in arms who are left. At one time he was the owner of a tract of land that is now a part of West Detroit. If put on the market today it would easily bring one million dollars. He has seen much of nature and of life in all its phases. He knows some of the hardships and much of the delights that people encountered during the elapse of the last three score and ten years.
