Sgt. John COLBY was born on 19 NOV 1656 in Salisbury, Essex County, Massachusetts. He died on 6 APR 1719 at Amesbury, Essex County, Massachusetts. He has Ancestral File Number FHW0-GN.
Sergeant John Colby took the oath of allegiance and fidelity, Dec 1677 and was a soldier in King Philip's War, at the Falls Fight under Capt William Turner, 18 May 1676, and was sergeant of the Amesbury train band, 1680. Administration on the estate of John Colby was granted to Joseph Colby, the only surviving son, 21 April 1719. Robert Ring, son of the widow Ruth Ring, administered her estate, May 1748.
(Wies)
John rec'd "children's land" in 1659 and a "township" in 1660. Member of "training band" 1680. He d. 06 Apr 1719 in Amesbury; adm est. gr Joseph Colby, only surviving son, 21 Apr 1719.

He was married to Sarah Osgood (daughter of William Osgood and Elizabeth (Osgood)) before 1700 in Prob Amesbury, Ma. Sarah Osgood was born on Feb 7 1653 in Salisbury, Ma. She died about 1716 in Amesbury, Ma. It is cetain from deeds that Sarah Osgood, b 1652/3, was in 1700 and 1708 wife of John Colby, and that she was dead in 1716. The only doubt is whether Sarah Eldridge and Sarah Osgood were the same person. The records may be reconciled in three ways: 1. Perhaps Eldridge should read Osgood. 2. Perhaps Sarah Osgood married 1st _____ Eldridge, of whom we have no other record, and m. 2nd John Colby. 3. the two may be distinct persons, as given above, which seems most probable, though we have no trace of the family of Sarah Eldridge. Wm and Anne Eldred, or Eldridge, of Yarmouth had Dau. Sarah, b.t 1850; but she was six years older than John Colby, and we know of no intercourse between Yarmouth and Salisbury. There was a John Eldred of Hampton in 1640, who apparently soon died or moved away.
