No Headline (Mortuary Notice)
Date: 1840-03-02; Paper: New Hampshire Patriot and State Gazette

In Warner, Feb. 21, Mr. Levi Colby, aged 86.

The subject of this notice has been a man of sorrow ever since he arrived at the age of 67. Previous to that time he was in easy circumstances, with a pleasant family; but through the profligacy(??) of an ungrateful son, he became overwhelmed in debt, and was committed to the debtor's prison, in which place, during the winter of 1821, he was brought into a state of great suffering, and near the grave, and but for the kind interposition of a particular friend of his, a few tolling sans more would have closed his existence. But he was raised from this condition to suffer still greater trials, and more severe afflictions.

Being robbed of his property, and broken down with the infirmities of age, he was under the necessity of making application to the town for support during the remnant of of his days, which was exceedingly mortifying to an honest and upright man, who had been reduced to this by unforeseen events. It is hoped that above will prove a warning to parents not to put too much confidence in children, but to avail themselves of the means with which they are provided for support during their declining years.



Levi Colby was a brother to Hezekiah. He settled at the Fair Ground; and the railroad, when it came along, ploughed through his old cellar. Fred Myron Colby, the young writer of Warner, is a great-grandson of this Levi, being the son of Levi O., who is the son of Valentine, who is the son of Levi.

He was married at Hopkinton, NH where the record of marriage at the church reads: "Levi Colby and Caity Smith." He served one enlistment in the Revolutionary War. His war record, as copied from the New Hampshire Revolutionary Rolls in the Office of the Secretary of State, Concord, NH is as follows:

"Levi Colby, Private; Captain Joshua Bagley's Company; Colonel Thomas Stickney's Regiment; General Stark's Brigade; New Hampshire Militia, which company marched from Hopkinton, July, 1777 and joined the Northern Continental Army. Fought at Bennington, VT.

Roll sworn to at Exeter, NH.
New Hampshire Rev. Rolls in the Office of the Secretary of State Concord, NH.

Roscoe Colby comments concerning Levi's activities after the War: "It was a custom of the times for a father to give his son a piece of land to clear and settle. This may have been how Levi came to own Lot No. 17 in the 5th Range in Henniker, NH. - later known as the Patten Place."

"A cart road from Levi's place went up to the top of Patten Hill, where it passed out of Levi's home lot. There was a pair of huge gateposts at this spot and they are still standing (1974). From that gate the cart road was fairly level to the Colby Hill Road, which it joined where the Colby Hill Road made a right angle. Down to the left of the road was a swampy meadow.

Levi "starved himself to death through fear of coming to want."

Levi built a house, positioned so that he would have a nice view down the valley and to the hills beyond the Contoocook River then built a barn where it shut off the view.

A second house was built on the property for Levi, Jr. This was later torn down and reassembled on the Nahum Colby farm and was called the "upper house".

Levi in later years signed his name as LT. Colby.
