Caleb Edgar Slocomb 1823 - 1893
Adeline Baker Slocomb 1831 - 1911

Caleb Edgar Slocomb, the son of Captain Caleb and Mary (Hamilton) Slocomb, was born 30 August 1823 in Wilmot, Nova Scotia, Canada the fifth of the 10 children. Capt. Caleb’s ancestry has been traced back to Simon Slocomb of Boston, Massachusetts and is recorded in Volume 1 of A Short History of the Slocums, Slocumbs and Slocombs of America: Genealogical and Biographical: Embracing Eleven Generations of the First-named Family, From 1637 to 1881: With Their Alliances and the Descendants in the Female Lines as far as Ascertained by Charles Elihu Slocum. Little is known of Mary’s ancestry other than her birth date. One source lists her birthplace as St. John, New Brunswick, Canada; but is listed as Scotland by the Slocomb family in the 1880 Census

     Caleb met and married (05 October 1846) Adeline Baker (born about 30 October 1831) in St. Francis, New Brunswick, Canada . She was the daughter of John and Sophie (Rice) Baker.  John and Sophie were involved in the Maine – Canada border dispute in the late 1820’s.  A lengthy article an their involvement and other history can be found at  Sophie, in one article was referred to as the “Barbara Freechy of the North”.

     The 1880 Census lists Caleb and Adeline, along with sons Havelock H., and Johney T. in Fort Fairfield, Maine.  In Charles Slocum’s book, these sons are listed as Henry Havelock and John Tibbets.  Caleb’s occupation is listed as “Blacksmith”.  The family can be difficult to locate in the Census, as the last name is spelling is “Sloecumb”

Both Caleb and Adeline died in Fort Fairfield Maine, Caleb 18 May 1893, and Adeline 10 April 1911.  Both are buried in Fort Fairfield’s’ Riverside Cemetery.

Descendants and Ancestors of
Caleb Edgar Slocomb(2)  and Adeline Baker Slocomb(3) 

the 15th generation in the Slocomb family, their descendants and their ancestors

In the Charles Slocum book on the Slocum family, with all the spelling variations, Caleb Edgar Slocomb is assigned the number of [737]. The focus and outline of this page is on Caleb and Adeline, an outline of their descendants and an outline of their ancestors. In the outline below I'm using the following format for ancestors and descendants :

Ancestors have the number from the Slocum book in [square brackets], Caleb was assigned the number [737] and an Ahnentafel number in (parentheses); Caleb is (2) and Adeline is (3). I've also assigned a number to each generation. In the "Slocum book, Simon would be counted as the first generation, as his ancestors had not been determomed. Counting Simon as generation 1, however, would create negative numbers since other family lines go back past the time of Simon. To overcome this problem I assigned Simon as generation 11 and built forward and backward off that point.

Descendants (and their spouses) have only a generation number in front of their names.

If anyone has information on either descendants or ancestors that can be added to this page to make it more complete please drop me a line with the information and I'll see it gets in place with the proper credit.
