He left to attend medical lectures at Yale College in New Haven, Conn., in 1817 and graduated from Dartmouth College in Hanover, N.H., in 1821. He then began to practise in Derby. Although a boundary line separated Derby from Stanstead, Lower Canada, the people of both shared social interests, and he was named an officer in the newly formed chapter of the Stanstead Masonic Golden Rule Lodge. In 1828 Colby entered the School of Practical Anatomy at Harvard College. There he made the acquaintance of Dr Augustus Addison Gould, president of the Massachusetts Medical Society, with whom he long sustained an interesting correspondence, some of which was published. He returned to his practice in Derby with an ma.

In 1832, after passing a rigid examination before the Quebec Medical Board, Dr Colby moved to Stanstead, whose two physicians had died. His outstanding professional work and continued studies soon placed him at the head of his profession in the Eastern Townships and in northern New England. He published a pamphlet, New views of the functions of the digestive tube in 1860 and contributed valuable articles to the Boston Medical and Surgical Journal and other periodicals. He also offered his own remedies for sale: newspapers advertised “Dr. M. F. Colby’s anti-costive tonic and pills, a Canadian Remedy,” in the 1860s.

Colby was also public-spirited. In January 1837 the Conservative families of Stanstead had prevailed upon him to seek election to the assembly after the resignation of John Grannis, one of two members for Stanstead; the other was Marcus Child*, who supported the Patriote party. The Missiskoui Standard, a Conservative newspaper founded in 1835 by James Moir Ferres, endorsed Colby as a man of high principles. Colby agreed with the views expressed by Conservatives in Stanstead who, although they were opposed to some of the Legislative Council’s policies, did not favour an elective council, which they felt would put too much power into the hands of French Canadians. Neither did he think that the way to improve the government was through revolution. Dr Colby served in the assembly from 13 Jan. 1837 to 27 March 1838, when it was replaced by the Special Council. In 1839 Colby was sued by Robert Nelson*, the former Patriote, allegedly because of an operation performed in 1833 in Vermont. Nelson appears, however, to have been retaliating for Colby’s refusal to support him during the rebellion.

In the first election after the union of the two Canadas in 1841 Moses Colby and Reformer Marcus Child contested Stanstead County. Colby declared himself “an advocate for the free and unfettered exercise of the elective franchise, for a system of responsible government that would secure the country against fraud and malversations of office,” and for taxation only with the consent of the people legitimately expressed through their representatives. He was, however, defeated by Child.

In 1847 Colby was appointed surgeon in the Stanstead Regiment of militia. Another indication of his wide interests appeared in the Stanstead Journal’s comment in September 1848 on his fine Ayrshire cattle shown at the Stanstead County fair at Barnston. For a number of years before his death in 1863 Colby was in feeble health, prematurely worn out by overwork in a day when good physicians were few. He had had a sincere concern for his patients and was regarded as an able, inquiring, and forceful man and doctor. His eldest son, Charles Carroll*, represented Stanstead in the House of Commons from confederation to 1891.

Laid at rest-
Funeral services of the late Moses L. Colby held at the historic Macy-Colby House. Very largely attended ...delegations from organizations.

The funeral of Moses L. Colby took place as it was fitting it should from the Macy-Colby house. His remains followed by a long train of mourners were borne from the ancient home of his fathers to their lasting resting place on the green hillside near the graves of his ancestors.

It was the funeral of one in whom many were interested and the attendance at the obsequies was large.

Besides the many relatives and friends to whom Mr. Colby was well known and beloved, there was a large number of citizens and some strangers. Representatives also of the Bartlett Cemetery Association, Josiah Bartlett Chapter of D.R., Amesbury Improvement Society and the remaining '49 ers in town, A. M. ....ntgon and Ephraim Brown also ........Morrill of Newburyport.

The services were conducted by Rev. D.W. Davis who discoursed at some length. In closing he spoke tenderly of the deceased bringing out some of the traits of his character. He emphasized feelingly the moral life, the gentle manner, the quiet reticent ways, the noble patriotism and magnanimous spirit of Mr. Colby in presenting the town with the invaluable gift of his ancient ancestral home with the spacious grounds so finely graded and adorned. Mr. Colby's religious belief it was not easy to define for he was a man of few words on these things and of exceedingly taciturn disposition. His brother Luther was a leading spiritualist but one who knew them both well and at whose home they were frequent guests remarked that in the discussion of such matters Moses never showed by word or act that he had any sympathy with spiritualism.

A quartette consisting of C.S. Wingate, Dr. E.L. Noyes, Mrs. Sadie Taylor, and Miss Mildred Daniels sang two selections, "Lead Kindly Light", and "Still, Still With Thee" and closed the service by chanting The Lord's Prayer.

Floral tributes to the memory of the deceased were many and very beautiful. There were wreaths, set pieces and bouquets by the family, the immediate friends and others.

MOSES L. COLBY
Death of a Well Known Resident
Was a ‘49er and a Veteran Fireman
Generous Gift of the Historic Macy-Colby House

On Tuesday Moses L. Colby, a well known resident of the town passed away at his home in Kendrick’s Court. He was the son of Capt. Wm. And Mary Long Colby and was born in 1821. His father was twice married. The children by the second wife were Joseph, Obadiah, Moses, Elizabeth and Luther, who was the editor of the “Banner of Light” for many years.

The first Colby came to this country in Governor Winthrop’s company in 1636 and Moses was of the seventh generation from Anthony, the first Colby settler of Amesbury. He went to Boston when a young man and learned the trade of a boot maker and followed that trade for some years. He belonged to one of the Boston Fire Companies, the equipment of which he loved to preserve to his last years.

Moses was one of those who went to California in ’49 and resided there for 18 years, keeping store part of the time.

He was a member of one of the ’49 Clubs of Boston. In his return from California he boarded with his nephews who kept house for their father Obadiah in the old Macy house. This house has been in the possession of this family for ten generations, since 1654 when they purchased it from Thomas Macy the first town clerk who erected it. After the death of Obadiah, Moses became legal heir to the Macy house be purchasing the property rights of others.

Since his nephew Wm. Moved from the Macy house to Allen’s Corner Moses had boarded with his nephew Edward who resides in Kendrick’s Court. At this home he had for himself rooms which he kept in orderly arrangement relics of other years which he treasured so highly.

He ever had a strong desire to see the Macy house preserved as an object of historic interest by the town and in this he was fully sustained by the members of Josiah Bartlett Chapter D.R.

The Bartlett Cemetery Association having purchased from Mr. Colby the land in the rear of the house, it was placed in their hands and would be kept in an excellent stare of preservation. The Cemetery Association would thus secure by his gift to them what they had desired, an entrance to their grounds. For this reason, he gave a deed of the house to the Association stipulating that it should be kept in excellent order.

It had been a great labor of love to Mr. Colby this summer in putting the grounds in to proper shape and adorning them.

Mr. Colby was a great lover of his country, a true patriot. Last Saturday only he remarked to a friend who visited him that it caused him keen regret in not seeing the old flag float from the Macy house on the Fourth of July, the first time in all his life he had ever missed it there on that day. He was a man that was neat and orderly in all his habits and ways of life. He was upright and square in all his dealings with his fellows and was gently and retiring in disposition. His familiar form will be greatly missed by all his friends at the Ferry and elsewhere; but he will not be forgotten for he has left us an enduring memorial of his kindness and generosity.

The death of Moses Colby removes from our midst a highly respected and most public spirited citizen. His generous gift to Josiah Bartlett Chapter Daughters of the Revolution of the historic Colby-Macy house will ever endear his name to the people of this town. This ancient house which has so many interesting historic facts connected with its history will always be highly prized. Mr. Colby did not wait until after he had departed this life before he did good with his money, his liberal contributions in fixing up the historic house and grounds were fully appreciated and he lived to see the generous use of his funds benefit those around him. Would that other men of means might emulate his example and by a liberal use of their wealth give the public something from which they can receive benefit.

He bought the Macy-Colby House from his nephew, William Colby, son of his brother Obadiah.

In 1899 or 1900, Moses Colby presented the original family homestead, known as the Macy - Colby House, to the Bartlett Cemetery Association. Before turning the property over, he made extensive repairs to the house. He put in sills, new floors, and the roof was re-shingled. Also, the chimney was rebuilt and the hearths in the old fireplaces were restored. Soon the house was ready to be put into the care of the Josiah Bartlett Chapter, Daughters of the Revolution and their first meeting in the Macy-Colby House was held on June 27, 1900.
