He was a lawyer in Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts. He was buried in the Greenlawn Cemetery at Mont Vernon, Hillsborough County, New Hampshire John Freeman Colby was born on his father's farm in that part of Society Land which became a part of the town of Bennington on its incorporation in 1842. His early opportunities for education were few and small, but he had a strong thirst for knowledge, which is father encouraged. His father dying, he was thrown upon his own resources. By industry and economy, he saved money enough to secure two terms of schooling, and at the age of seventeen taught his first school. He fitted for college at Mount Vernon and Reed's Ferry, and as a private pupil of the late Hon. George Stevens, of Lowell, Mass., and entered Dartmouth in 1855. He took the broad; liberal college course of that time; he taught school every winter; he learned books as librarian for three years in one of the college libraries. He commanded the confidence of officers and students alike, and at his graduation, in 1859, was assured that in the judgment of the Faculty his progress during the four years had been relatively greater than that of any other man in the entire class of seventy. A place was waiting for him, and he became principal of the Stetson High School, Randolph, Mass. Distinction and promotion were open to him as a teacher, and tempting business offers were urged upon him. But he had devoted himself to the legal profession, and accordingly, in 1864, he moved to Boston, and entered the offices of Hon. Ambrose A Ranney and Nathan Morse, Esq. In December, 1865, after less than two years of study, on examination he was admitted to the Suffolk Bar, and has continued in general practice, almost without interruption, to the present time, acquiring a valuable clientage, and the reputation of a sound lawyer, a conscientious and faithful attorney, and a able advocate, with a lofty conception of the dignity of the profession and an enthusiasm for it which never fails.

For the most part Mr. Colby has resisted political preferment, but he occupied a seat in the common council of the city of Boston in 1878-79, serving on the judiciary and other important committees, and in 1886 he was elected representative to the Massachusetts legislature for the eighteenth Suffolk district. He was made House chairman of the joint committee on harbors and public lands, and a member of the joint committee on parishes and religious societies.

Mr. Colby's religious convictions matured while he was a student at the Merrimack Normal Institute, Reed's Ferry, and he joined the Congregational church at Mount Vernon in 1854, since which time he has been actively engaged in Christian work. When he moved to Boston, he connected himself first with the Mount Vernon church, under the ministry successively of Rev. E. N. Kirk, D.D., and Rev. S. E. Herrick, D.D., where he became prominent in all the affairs of the parish, being a teacher and superintendent in the Sunday school, clerk and treasurer of the church, a member of the examining committee, and treasurer of the society. The office of Deacon, to which he was elected, he declined. Since 1884 he has been connected with the Union church, Rev. R. R. Meredith, D.D., pastor. He is also an officer of the Congregational club, and active in several benevolent organizations.

Devoting himself with great ardor to his profession, Mr. Colby has avoided business responsibilities for the most part, but he served as receiver of the Mechanics' Bank after its failure in 1877, and has been for several years one of the trustees of the North End Savings Bank. He also combines business with pleasure in the management of the farm connected with his attractive summer home in Mount Vernon, New Hampshire.

Mr. Colby's family life has been singularly happy. He married Miss Ruthey Ellen Cloutman, of Mount Vernon, on the 24th of January, 1861. Three children have been born to them: John Henry, born at Randolph, Mass., Jan. 13, 1862; graduated at Dartmouth College, 1885; student of law in his father's office, and in the Law school of Boston University. Charles Dane, born at Mount Vernon, June 30, 1865; died Sept 2, 1865. Arthur Stevens, born in Boston, March 24, 1869; scholar in the English high school, Boston. Since 1869 the family residence in Boston has been at No. 1 Wellington Street, a home always open in generous hospitality to friends old and new.

Thus it will be seen that Mr. Colby is the product of the best New England forces. There is the strength of the hills in his convictions, his integrity, his indomitable will. Industry and method have been the watchwords of his success, --an industry which fills every hour with some serious endeavor towards some worthy end, --a method which reduces to symmetry and order what would otherwise be fragmentary and confusing. Around his life have gathered choice friendships with strong and cultivated minds, and the fruits of a well-ordered intellectual and spiritual manhood. In the full energy of his matured powers he is still making history for himself and for his generation. (Sketch prepared by Rev. Cecil F. P. Bancroft, Ph.D., of Andover, Mass.)

Colby. --- On Monday, Jan. 4, John H. Colby. Funeral from his late residence. 97 4th-st., Troy, N. Y., on Wednesday, 6th inst., at 2 P.M.


JOHN H. COLBY. The parents of John H. Colby came to the city of Troy from the counties of Grafton and Sullivan, in the State of New Hampshire. Their ancestors were among the early settlers of the Granite State. His grandfathers, upon both the paternal and maternal side, were engaged in the Revolutionary struggle of the American colonies for independence, one participating at the battle of Bennington and the other upon the field of Saratoga. His father's name was Caleb K. Colby, and his mother's was Abigail Howe. Mr. Colby was born at Troy, March 27, 1835. and received his education at the common schools of the city and at the private academy of the Rev. John Smith, AM., who was a graduate of one of the Scottish universities. Upon leaving school he entered the law-office of Olin & Geer, at Troy, the senior member of the firm being the Hon. Abram B. Olin, who was, until quite recently, one of the judges of the District Court of the District of Columbia. Upon his admission to the bar, Mr. Colby became a member of the legal firm of Olin. Geer & Colby, and continued therein until the election of Mr. Olin as a member of Congress, since which time he has practiced law without any partner. He is the author of Colby's Criminal Law and Practice," a publication well known to the legal profession both within and without the State, and has also published a commentary upon the law and practice governing the disposition of surplus funds arising upon sales of land under mortgage foreclosures.

Politically he has always been an uncompromising Democrat and an active member of the party, having been several times chosen a delegate to State conventions, and having been a member of the Democratic State Committee. he was a delegate from the State of New York to the Democratic National Convention held at Baltimore, Md., which nominated Horace Greeley for President, and was also a member of the Electoral College of the State of New York. in 1868 which cast its vote for Horatio Seymour for President.

He has been a member of the board of education of the city of Troy; was appointed city attorney of Troy by its common council, and at the age of twenty-six years was elected district attorney of Rensselaer County. While district attorney he was one of the most prompt, efficient, and fearless public prosecutors that ever served the people of his county. He was an active member of the citizens' committee which in 1870 framed the new city charter, and one of the special committee selected to secure its adoption by the Legislature. While city attorney, and acting under the direction of the common council, he compiled the statute laws and municipal ordinances relating to the city of Troy, which were published by the city in a printed volume of seven hundred pages.

From the time of his admission to the bar he has been actively engaged in the practice of the law in his native city. and is well and favorably known as a safe and prudent counselor - one of untiring zeal in his fidelity to his clients. Although leading the life of a busy advocate, coupled with the discharge of the duties of public offices, he has found rime to become largely identified with the purchase and sale of real estate in the cities of Albany and Troy. He is a man of uncommon energy, industry, and perseverance, he is a married man - the name of his wife was Ellen Desmond - and he has two children, named John D. and Mary J. His religious proclivities are of the Universalist persuasion.
