JOHN DENNY COLBY
"A life, quiet and unostentatious, characterized by the most honorable purposes and fidelity to duty was that lived by John Denny Colby. A native of New Hampshire, he was born in 1837, a son of John and Mary (Denny) Colby. In the year 1844 the father camewith his family to Memphis and conducted a large dairy business here. Having an invalid wife he purchased a large farm from the government in Minnesota in the vicinity of St. Paul and later the subject of this review and the family spent several years alternating between the two places; at one time during an epidemic in Memphis they spent a period of seven years in the north without returning to Tennessee, after which they took up their permanent abode in Memphis. The original home of John and Mary Colby and families was on twenty-five acres of land at Poplar and West Waldron, living in a brick house on that place. On account of the migratory methods of the family life during his youthful days John Denny Colby was educated by private tutors, both in Memphis and in Minnesota. When the Civil war broke out he was among the first to enlist, joining Company C of the Seventh Tennessee Regiment, one of the most famous cavalry regiments of the war. The history of this organization possesses a strong local interest, by reason of the fact that several of the companies composing it were raised in the Bluff City and all the others were from West Tennessee. The men composing the regiment felt they had a right to be called the First and record is here made of the fact that they were virtually the first to organize but through some technicality were called the Seventh, but as such the glory of their record compensates for their loss of first place in name. This regiment was originally commanded by Colonel, afterward General, W. I. H. Jackson, and then successively by Colonels J. G. Stark, W. S. Duckworth and William F. Taylor. No regiment in the war exhibited greater daring or fidelity to the cause for which they fought than the famous Seventh, and a number of general officers, colonels and other distinguished field officers commenced their fighting career as soldiers and officers of this command. Among these was General N. B. Forrest, who enlisted as a private soldier in Captain Josiah White's old Company D on June 14, 1861. The regiment under the leadership of its dashing commander won renown in the deadly combats at Oxford, Coffeeville, Holly Springs, Davis Mills, Mentone, Brittains Lane, Colliersville, Union City, Prairie Mound, Guntown, Harrisburg, Athens , Sulphur Tustle and on many other occasions in that long sanguinary struggle. Mr. Colby entered as a private and rose to a second lieutenancy. On leaving home to join his regiment his mother gave him a small piece of cotton cloth with several gold dollars quilted into the piece and told him not to make use of them unless driven by extremity to do so. This he obeyed implicitly and only once while a prisoner of war did he use a gold piece, the occasion being when with which to buy a loaf of bread, and this he shared with the guard.

At the close of the war Mr. Colby returned to Memphis, and with his brother Eli, purchased twelve acres of land on New Raleigh road, now Chelsea street, at Breedlove, surrounding the location of the present home, and there they started a dairy farm. At the same time John Denny Colby conducted a large farm at Woodbury, Minnesota, which remained in possession of the family until a recent date. Mr. Colby was strictly a home man, wrapped up in the interests of his family, being at all times a devoted husband and father. His was a conscientious Christian character and he was ever actuated by Christian principles. His family attend the Chelsea Avenue Presbyterian church.

On the 5th of November, 1866, Mr. Colby was united in marriage to Miss Georgia Plumer, a daughter of Horace and Nancy (Woodruff) Plumer. To this marriage there were born eleven children: John Denny, who died in infancy; John Denny, who died at the age of seventeen years; Nannie Denny, who passed away the year following her graduation from Miss Clara Conway's School for Girls; Georgia, who died at the age of fifteen; Horace P., now a landowner of Memphis; Clarence and Morrill, both deceased; Mary, living at the old homestead with her mother; Jennie, now Mrs. J. Clyde Zink of Memphis; Albert, who is engaged in the real estate business in Memphis; and Mehitable T., the wife of the Rev. Charles A. Harper of Clarendon, Arkansas, pastor of the Presbyterian church there.

Mr. Colby gave his political allegiance always to the democratic party. He was an upright and public-spirited citizen, who believed in law and order and when the war was decided against the south he steadfastly refused to join those bodies who took the law into their own hands and meted out a self-imposed justice sometimes merited and sometimes not. Mr. Colby took the stand that he had taken the oath of office to be a loyal citizen of the United States and was bound thereby. This loyalty to his word was one of his splendid traits of character. He was ever faithful to any cause with which he became allied and he worked earnestly for the uplift and benefit of his neighborhood. He passed away February 14, 1892, and although a third of a century has come and gone he is yet most kindly remembered by those who were his associates and friends."

"Two freight trains came together in a rear end collision on the Central Vermont near Royalton between 11 and 12 o'clock Thursday night. Both trains were specials, and one was following the other. At one of the curves the rear train came upon the train in front and struck the caboose, demolishing it and knocking it off the tracks.

John Colby, of Barre, the conductor, who was riding in the cab, was killed. The caboose was set on fire, and his body which was buried underneath the debris, was not found until 5 o'clock this morning. He was missed after the collision,and it was feared that he was under the wreck.

The night trains we delayed by the accident, and the north bound morning train did not reach this city until about 5 o'clock.

Colby has run on the Junction branch as baggage master and also worked on the line as brakeman. This was his first trip after being "set up" as conductor. He has a wife and four children residing at Barre. A brakeman named Donovan was also hurt and went home to St. Albans on the morning express"
