JAMES L. COLBY

James L. Colby, commissioner of Merrimack County, died at his home in Webster and 10 o'clock in the evening of Tuesday, January 24, after several months of illness. He was born in Rumford, Me., November 15, 1835, the only child of Charles S. and Ann (Greeley) Colby, and came to Webster in childhood with his parents. His grandfather, on his mother's side, was Reuben Greeley, leading citizen of Salisbury, who married Mary Ann, daughter of Captain James Shirley of Chester.

With the exception of a few brief absences, Mr. Colby was a lifelong resident of Webster and one of the town's best known citizens. After attending the schools there and Simonds Free High school at Warner he learned the carpenter's trade, but devoted most of his time to carrying on the home farm, combined, in later years, with extensive lumbering operations. Before the death of Charles S. Colby, who passed away December 17, 1918, at the age of 92, four generations, including father son, grandson and great-grandson were active at the same time on the old place.

Mr. Colby was a member of the Republican State committee and an energetic and successful worker in the interests of his party. His townspeople had honored him with all the offices in their gift, including moderator, selectman, member of the school board and representative to the legislature in 1917, in which he served upon the standing committee on County Affairs. This was appropriately followed by his election in 1918 as a member of the board of commissioners for Merrimack county, a position which he filled so well that his re-election in 1920 for another term was a matter of course.

For many years he was a director of the Merrimack County Mutual Fire Insurance company and its treasurer at the time of his death. He was a member of Harris lodge, A. F. and A. M. of Warner, and of the New Hampshire Lumbermen's Association.

Mr. Colby married June 14, 1891, Mary Morse of Webster, who survives him, with their son, Joseph G. Colby, of Webster, their daughter, Mrs. Annie Brockway of Newport, and four grandchildren.

Not only in his family circle and by his fellow townsmen and business and official associates is Mr. Colby's death deeply mourned, but also by a wide circle of friends throughout the state, by whom his hearty greeting, its sincerity, warmth and vigor so typical of the man, will be greatly missed.

He was buried in the Beaver Dam Cemetery at Webster, Merrimack County, New Hampshire (BOOK SOURCE: "The History of Boscawen & Webster, New Hampshire, from 1878 to 1933." by Willis G. Buxton.) Parents: Charles Sargent COLBY and Anne Green GREELEY.

James S. COLBY, a retired farmer of Owosso, Shiawassee County, Mich., was born in Granby Township, Oswego County, N.Y., March 14, 1822. His father, Daniel D. Colby, was a native of New York, and a farmer by occupation, and a son of William Colby, a Revolutionary soldier of Scotch-Irish extraction. The mother of our subject, Elizabeth Singer, was a sister of the notable I. M. Singer, the inventor of the Singer Sewing Machine. She was a daughter of Adam Singer, of Dutch descent, and was born in Rensselaer County, N. Y. Both the father and the mother of our subject remained on the farm in Oswego County, and there spent their declining years. The father was born in 1799, and passed away in 1884. In 1874 he was bereaved of his wife, whose natal year was 1800. They were the parents of eleven children, of whom our subject was the eldest of seven sons and four daughters, eight of whom are still living. They were all born in Oswego County, and two of them are living in Michigan, one in Missouri, and the others in their native Sate. He of whom we write was trained in the practical work of farm life, and attended the district school when he could be spared from the farm. Being the eldest son, he was his father's mainstay, and remained under the parental roof until he had reached his twenty-second year. When he came to Michigan he made his first home at Pinckney, Livingston County, and in 1884 established himself there in the coopering business, and the last year of his residence in Livingston County kept hotel.

Mr. Colby removed to Shiawassee County in 1854, and located on a farm six miles south of Owosso, in the township of Shiawassee Here he devoted himself to raising sheep, and in cultivating the more prominent cereals such as wheat, oats and corn. His farm consisted of three hundred and twenty acres, and he continued upon it until 1881, when he removed from the farm to Owosso. He owns three farms which are operated by tenants. Mr. Colby was married in November, 1843, to Eliza Nelson, who was born in Oswego, N. Y., in 1826. Five children were born to them, namely: Gaylord F., who is now a farmer; Clarence D., who has an extensive farm in Ingham County, this State. Rudolph J., who owns a part of the old farm in this county; Leola L., who resides at home ; and Nellie, the wife of Clarence Edgerton, a farmer living near Grand Rapids. The present Mrs. Colby was a widow, formerly Mrs. Harriet Durgen of Saginaw. Mr. Colby is a stanch Democrat in politics, and has made a grand and successful struggle with the difficulties of life, having begun his career with very limited means. He has now accumulated a handsome property, and has on of the finest brick residences in the city, with all the modern improvements.
