Charge Against Colby


General Leonard Colby was indicted for the alleged embezzling of amounts aggregating $3,000 of government funds, paid to him in trust by the state of Nebraska and others for equipment belonging to the United States army. The bill charges that, while adjutant general of Nebraska, General Colby turned over to the state penitentiary during January, 1891, 700 United States army blankets, to be used in an emergency caused by a fire in that institution; that the state legislature appropriated $3,280 to reimburse the government for these blankets, the amount being turned over to Colby to be paid to the government; that the amount was never paid into the United States treasury nor turned back into the state treasury when Colby's term as adjutant general expired. There are thirty-seven other counts in the bill mostly for small sums, charging Colby with selling small arms and other equipment to members of the national guard and appropriating the money to his own use.

Comment 3:
An infant named Lost Bird orphaned by the massacre (Wounded Knee) was found alive under the slain body of her mother, who had shielded her from gunfire with her own body. Brigadier General Leonard Wright Colby rode into the Indian camp and took Lost Bird by force from the elderly Lakota woman to whom she had been entrusted. He adopted the child, naming her Marguerite Colby. And later described as a " living curio" of the massacre. Initially Colby spoiled Lost Bird, but then ran off with his housemaid. Leaving his wife to raise the child. From "Native Americans" : A History in Pictures by Arlene Hirschfelder.

Comment 4:
On December 29, 1890, beneath a white flag of truce, a band of Lakota Indians was massacred by the United States 7th Calvary at Wounded Knee, South Dakota. Four days later, after a blizzard had swept over the area, a burial detail heard the cries of an infant. Beneath the slain body of a woman who had frozen to the ground in her own blood, they found a baby girl, frostbitten yet miraculously alive, tightly wrapped, and wearing a small buckskin cap, beaded on both sides with American flags. Disobeying military orders, Brigadier General Leonard W. Colby adopted the small living "curio" of the massacre. He later became assistant attorney general of the United States and used his adopted daughter to convince prominent Native American tribes to hire him as their lawyer. As an adolescent, Lost Bird was sexually abused by the general, and her adopted mother, Clara Colby, divorced him. A suffragist and newspaper editor, Clara Colby spoke up against the exploitation of Indian culture and defied her close associates Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton to raise the girl alone. After an unceasing but futile search for her roots and employment in the Buffalo Bill Wild West Show and in silent films, Lost Bird resorted to the streets of the Barbary Coast to survive. Her tragic life ended on Valentines Day, 1920, at the age of 29, and she was buried in a remote cemetery far from her native land. In 1991, more than 100 years after the Wounded Knee tragedy, descendants of victims of the massacre searched for Lost Bird's grave, repatriated her remains, and re buried her at the Wounded Knee Memorial alongside the mass grave of her relatives. In this significant work, the author movingly narrates the story of Lost Bird, who has become a symbol for thousands of children adopted away from their tribes and, for all people who have lost their heritage through social injustice, ignorance and war.

Comment 5:
From "Lost Bird Of Wounded Knee, Spirit of the Lakota", written by Renee Sansom Flood
He married Clara D Bewick... They adopted a daughter Ada Mary who died before she was a year old. (no dates but soon after they were married) Clara watched her mother die in childbirth then had her adopted daughter die, She was afraid to give birth and either die herself or have the infant die. In 1883 an orphan train pulled into Beatrice Nebraska Clara and Leonard were walking by after all of the children had been chosen but one.. a small curly haired 3 year old boy. they took him home cleaned him up and named him Clarence. It did not take them long to discover Clarence was developmentally slow. (so Clarence would have been born in NY in 1880.. I say NY since that was where the orphan train was from) Clarence was 11 years old when Leonard informed Clara he had adopted Zintkala Nuni or "Lost Bird" Leonard Colby named Lost Bird Marguerite Elizabeth, But Clara would have none of that! She said that the child had been given a soft musical sounding name by her people, Zintkala Nuni That was her name!! Because of Clara's work with Susan B Anthony , she entrusted little Zintkala into her sisters care. Dr Mary White (possibly the first female Dr in Nebraska) hired a woman by the name of Marie Miller to be governess to little Zintkala. "Maud" as she was called had been Clara's kitchen maid since she was a child.. now at the ripe old age of 17 she was promoted to governess. On April 1 1893, Maud gave birth to Leonard Colby's illegitimate son Paul Livingston Colby (Livingston is Leonard's mother's maiden name) In June of 1894 Clara took Zintkala to her mother-in-laws house and snuck back to Beatrice in the middle of the night, she crept through the house and caught Leonard and Maud together in bed. Leonard had other affairs and fathered 4 other children. In 1896 Leonard began trying to win Clara back, (He knew she could help him get the appointment of brigadier General) They reconciled yet again and he got his appointment. On Oct 8 1898 they split yet again.

On New years Day 1899 General Colby and his Mistress Maud with the 1 million dollars raised for Cuban relief were in Matanzas Cuba Using an alias (or rather marrying Maud to a Cuban, Tomas H. Martinez, who afterward mysteriously disappeared) Colby purchased 17,000 acres of sugar and coffee plantations, deeded under Mauds new name Maria C Soler Martinez.

Sending Maud home ahead the general returned home to Beatrice in Feb 1899. One of Colbys first duties upon returning to his legal practice was on behalf of his client Maria Martinez, She filed a multi million dollar suit against the United States government for ruining her husbands plantations during the Cuban insurrection. Litigation was held up for years but eventually the long wait proved to be worth it.

The years of 1904 and 1905 were marked by a series of misfortune for Leonard. His brother Dr David Colby was drunk and his team of horses ran away with him dragging him to his death. then a second brother Edward died leaving his ailing mother Abigail to be looked after by an unmarried sister Abby. This arrangement ended in tragedy also after the police received reports that Abby was sadistically abusing her mother> The allegations were proven when police found Mrs Colby with bruises all over her body. They took her to a hospital but she refused to press charges against her daughter. She never recovered and died not long afterwards. Her daughter Abby was never prosecuted for the crime.

On March 30 1906 Leonard finally got his divorce.
On June 4th 1906 Leonard married Marie Miller "Maud" Martinez incidentally.. a few weeks before she had received a huge sum of money.

A special dispatch from Havana announces... the claims of Maria C Martinez for property injured and destroyed during the Cuban insurrection and the final judgement of $400,000 was awarded.

In Jan 1907 Clara sent Zintkala to live with Leonard and Maud... By April 7 1908 Zintkala was pregnant with Leonard Colby's child. On April 22 1908 Zintkala gave girth to a stillborn baby boy, After having been bound and gagged and made to sit in the attic (of a "maternity" home Leonard had hidden her in) on a day where the temp rose to 85. (apparently Clara never learned of this.. how she couldn't with Zintkala locked in that school for a year is beyond me.)

On Sept 7 1916 at 10 pm Clara Bewick Colby died.

At 3 am on Valentines Day 1920 Zitkala nuni died.
