Salmon Barrett COLBY was born on 1 JAN 1822 in Greece, Monroe County, New York. He died on 25 DEC 1882 at Washington D.C..
Note from Mrs. Jake Janzen,
8701 Hwy 41 26,
Fresno, CA. 93720-1010,
July 1994:
"There is a great deal of mystery about the life of Salmon Barrett Colby. He was born in upstate New York, near Rochester, where his family had been pioneer settlers. He was the oldest son, and no longer living at home for the 1840 census, but we don't know where he went.
He married Margaret Coffin Hill, daughter of two illustrious New England pioneer families, in Nachez, MS., but we have no idea how either one of these northerners got down there, or where they met. Remarks in family letters imply that Margaret was raised by relatives, as her mother was in poor health and spent her life "in the south", so maybe they just went there to be married with her mother present. But where did they meet?
We don't know where the couple lived while their first five children were born, (one set of twins died almost immediately). but Edward was born in New Brunswick, and that is where Salmon's parents were living at the time. The seventh son, Franklin Green, was born in Brooklyn in 1858, and a Brooklyn City Directory for 1860 lists Salmon Colby, employed in "Paper", but what this means, we don't know.
Other family stories say Salmon was in San Francisco before the Gold Rush, and bought land in what is now downtown, but was unable to keep it. There is no evidence that he was in California one way or another.
Franklin called his father "a drunken bum", but states his death certificate in Washington, D.C. for 1882 states he was a merchant in that city for 20 years. Even after he moved to Washington, he and his wife lived together, as their last son was born in 1867. Quite possibly he was an attractive adventurer, and came home just often enough to get his wife pregnant. That has been the implication in the stories about him, but there is no proof.
Salmon Colby died of a heart attack on Christmas night, 1882. He was 60."

Samuel COLBY was born in 1638/39 in Salisbury, Essex County, Massachusetts. Alternate date: Aug 10. 1638 (History of Sutton) He signed a will on 6 MAR 1715/16 in Amesbury, Essex County, Massachusetts. He died about 1716 at Amesbury, Essex County, Massachusetts. He will was proved on 2 JUL 1716 in Amesbury, Essex County, Massachusetts.
Samuel Colby, father of Samuel and son of Anthony, was born in 1639 in Amesbury. He was made a freeman in 1660. This title gave a man the right to vote in town affairs. It was necessary to own property and be a church member in order to receive it.

In his youth, he was something of a black sheep and in 1665 was convicted of a misdemeanor. In 1676, he was in King Philip's War and helped bury Captain Turner after the Deerfield Massacre. In 1686, he was prosecuted for selling drink without a license, but was acquitted. In 1689, he was a representative to the General Court of Massachusetts and in 1696 was chosen assessor of his native town.

He lived first at Amesbury, but like many others, he took up a lot in the Ox Common at East Haverhill without asking leave. The contest for ownership between the squatters and the legal proprietors continued for forty years. Before it was settled, he returned with his family to Amesbury. In 1678, he opened an inn at Bartlett's Corner near the old homestead and continued as the proprietor until his death in 1715.

About 1666, he married Elizabeth Sargent.

Comment #2

Samuel fought in King Philip's War, in the Falls Fight under Captain Turner. Salisbury town records show that Samuel was fined in 1665 for 'abusing a wench'. Samuel and Elizabeth owned a 'public house' or inn in Amesbury in 1678. In 1686, he was acquitted of a charge of 'selling drink without a license'. Samuel represented Amesbury in general court (Attorney?) in 1689. On July 22, 1692, Samuel signed a petition in favor of Mrs Bradbury who was accused of witchcraft.

Elizabeth was the daughter of William Sargent, a friend of Anthony. William's wife was Elizabeth Perkins. William was born in England in 1602. His Father was Richard Sargent, an officer in the Royal Navy. William also immigrated with Winthrop in 1630. from 'Lineage of Philander M. Colby of Arborville & Bradshaw, Me., and Spencer Colby of Hamilton County, Me. by Claudia K. (Miller) Forster, Seattle, Wa.

Samuel was a planter and innholder at Amesbury and later settled at Haverhill between 1664 and 1667. He received land in Amesbury, 1659 & 1662; townsman of Amesbury in 1660, lived in Haverhill, 1668, 1672 and 1674, but had returned to Amesbury, 1676, where he died. Among the few affidavits that were made to sustain claims for land near Turner's Falls, found in the Massachusetts M. S. Archives, is one from John Chase, in which he states that he and Samuel Colby were in the fight and helped to bury Captain Turner, and in 1689 served as representative from Amesbury.

He made his will 6 March 1715/6, which was proved 2 July 1716.

A grant was made of a township of land, as near as might be to the scene of the "Falls fight," to all officers and soldiers who were engaged therin."

Two new claimants, Samuel Coleby, eldest son of Samuel Coleby, of Almsbury, and tryall Newbury, of Malden, were admitted to first choice lots on the new tract, by act of the Court august 1, 1741.

In a letter to the Boston Transcript, a New England Genealogy publication, asks "I have read that three decendants of Anthony of Amesbury - Ruggles, Ambrose and Benjamin went to Wiscasset, Maine." This is true. In 1749, a petition was sent to the governor of Massachusetts (Maine was part of Mass untill 1820) asking that Wiscasset be made an independent town. This petition was signed by Ambrose, Ruggles, (Brothers) and Benj'n Colby. A similar petition was repeated in 1754 signed by Ambrose. The town was incorporated in 1760 as Pownalborough, in honor of Governor Pownall. It later was divided into three towns, Wiscasset, Dresden, and Alna. fron Lineage of Philander M.
