  1. 4.  Cyrenius Newcomb was born on 15 Jan 1748/49 in Dutchess County, NY (son of Cyrenius Newcomb and Sarah Smith); died in 1815 in Albany, NY.

    Notes:

    Cyrenius Newcomb, (son of Cyrenius, of Thomas, of Simon, of Andrew) was born at Little Nine Partners, or North East Princinct, near Cold Spring, Dutchess County, N.Y. Jan. 15, 1749. He married Jane Morris, who was born at Sacketts Harbor, NY March 25, 1754; died Aug. 1822. (Cyrenius and Jane married about 1772 and their first son was born in Dutchess County - as were others - in 1773 when Cyrenius was 25 and Jane, 19. In 1778, he enlisted for the American Revolution at Dutchess. So how/when did he meet Jane Morris if she was born at Sacketts Harbor, as is referenced? Or, did she/family relocate from there to Dutchess prior to her marriage at age 18?) It may be that Jane Morris was also from the Poughkeepsie area.)

    Mr. Newcomb later settled in Plattsburgh, Clinton County, and afterward removed to Pittstown. He was an officer in the War of 1812, as was his son, Smith Newcomb. By trade a tanner and shoemaker. He died at Albany, NY in 1815.

    Cyrenius Newcomb served in the American Revolutionary War, reported May, 28, 1778, as second lieutenant, Stoutenburgh's 4th Regt., Dutchess Co. Militia; also, was reported as of the same rank Oct. 17, 1785. He was an officer in the War of 1812. His brothers Simon and Kinner also served in the American Revolution.

    Simon Newcomb enlisted for the Revolutionary War at the same time and in the same company with his brother Kinner, from Nine Partners, Jun 1776, in Capt. Melancton Smith's Co. of Rangers, Stephen Haight, Lieut. ; Holmes, Ensign; no colonel; was engaged for five months at Nine Partners, Fishkill, Peekskill, and Verplanks Point in arresting and guarding Tories. While at the latter place the British ship Asia, 74 guns, and other smaller vessels, came up the North River and anchored opposite. His duties were transferred to watching and preventing the landing of the army until September, when ordered to White Plains, and he was employed until October in traversing the foregoing names places and on the Peekskill mountains; returned to Fishkill, thence to Poughkeepsie, to guard prisoners until the end of the month, when he was discharged at Nine Partners. On 10 Dec. 1776 he volunteered in the same company; was discharged in February following. On 10 Aug. 1777, he volunteered in Capt. John Rouse's Co., Ingals, Lieut, Col. Graham's Regt, Gen. Glover's Brigade; marched to Stillwater and encamped on Bemis Heights; was present at the capture of the army of Gen. Burgoyne, during the battle being in Gen. Gates' Division; after Burgoyne's surrender he was ordered to Albany, then to Esopus, etc., and was discharged Nov. 10. In June and July 1778, he served under Capt. Elijah Herrick, Col. Frazer's Regt.; in 1779 in Capt. Ostram's Co., same regiment. As a result of his services during the war he was a pensioner.

    Kinner Newcomb served in the American Revolution. A patriot soldier, he enlisted from Nine Partners in June 1776, in the Co. of Capt. Melancton Smith's Rangers, Stephen Haight, Lieut-Col.; rendered nearly five months' service there, and at Verplanks Point, Poughkeepsie, and on the Peekskill Mountains, in apprehending and guarding Tories. In Aug. 1777 he enlisted at Nine Partners in Capt. John Rouse's Co., joined the regiments of Col. Graham in Gen. Glover's brigade at Lansingburgh, marched to Stillwater, encamped on Bemis Heights until 16 Oct., then pursued the retreating army of Gen. Burgoyne, which surrendered on the 19th. Soon afterwards he returned to Albany, then Esopus, a part of the time having only roasted apples for food; was discharged at the end of three months. He was also in the Co. of Capt. Wanderburgh, Second N.Y. Regt.; served in Col. Philip Courtlandt's regiment, a portion of the time as orderly sergt. ; was named Col. Marinus Willett; was a private in the Fifth Regt., Rosecranse Co. Jan 1778 to Jan 1782.

    Cyrenius married Jane Morris about 1772. Jane (daughter of Joseph Morris) was born on 25 Mar 1754 in Sackets Harbor, NY; died in Aug 1822 in Pittstown, NY. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]


  2. 5.  Jane Morris was born on 25 Mar 1754 in Sackets Harbor, NY (daughter of Joseph Morris); died in Aug 1822 in Pittstown, NY.

    Notes:

    - References place Jane's birth at Sackett's Harbor, NY in 1754, and her marriage to Cyrenius at Sackett's Harbor about 1775. But her first son was born in October, 1773, so she likely married in 1772 when she was 18. It is doubful in my mind that she married at Sacketts Harbor, and I also question whether she was born there. Cyrenius was born in Dutchess County, NY and it appears he never left that area until after he married and had children who were born in Dutchess County.

    - Jane almost certainly died at Pittstown, NY, just northeast of Albany, since she and Cyrenius' last son, Hiram was born there in 1799 and her husband died at Albany in 1815.

Generation: 4

  1. 8.  Cyrenius Newcomb was born on 16 Apr 1721 in Lebanon, CT (son of Thomas Newcomb and Judith Woodworth); died in 1760 in Oswego, NY.

    Notes:

    - Cyrenius Newcomb was born April 6, 1721 at Lebonon (Now Columbia) CT and died as part of the British advance in the French and Indian War at Oswego, NY in 1760. He was married about 1743 to Sarah Smith. At age 18, he moved with his parents to Salisbury, CT where on Nov. 9, 1741, he was made the first town clerk, an office which he held up to the time of his moving in 1746 to Nine Partners, Crum Elbow Precinct (now Pleasant Valley) in Dutchess County, NY.
    His property in 1742-44 was set down at a value of 33 pounds sterling. He made several grants of land in Salisburxy after moving to New York. By trade he was a tanner, currier and shoemaker.
    He served as an officer in the French and Indian War and in the muster roll for Dutchess County, NY taken on May 1, 1760, the following was stated concerning him: "Age 39. Born in Conn. Laborer. 5 ft. 5 in. brown hair. Irish complexion. Enlisted April 8, Capt. Peter Harris Co." His name is among those on the list of deceased soldiers, 1756-1762, whose heirs received the pay due them at the time of their deaths: Cyrenios Nucomb, April 8, age 39, Conn.
    Fort Oswego was effectively abandoned until 1758, when the British reoccupied the area, and Bradstreet led an expedition from it that captured and destroyed Fort Frontenac. It was used again in 1759 as a departure point for a successful expedition against Fort Niagara, and in 1760 by Jeffery Amherst's army as it began its final attack on Montreal. Amherst's forces left Oswego on Aug. 10, 1860, and Cyrenius Newcomb was among them. Somehow, he was killed on or just several days after, possibly by natives friendly to the French cause, since no attacks by the French at Oswego are recorded. One family web site puts the date as Aug. 20, unlikely since that was one day into the attack on Fort Levis at Ogdensburg.
    Local militias of the non-centralized colonies were the military force in which all able bodied men served at some time. The Dutchess County New York militia of 104 men was commanded by Captain Peter Harris. Some of those who enlisted in April, 1760, joined Burgoyne's Army at Ticonderoga and some Amherst's army at Oswego. The History of Dutchess County lists members of Capt. Harris' company and shows lieutenants being Joseph Power and Isaac Conclin. Cyrenius Newcomb is among the members but is not listed as an officer.

    Cyrenius married Sarah Smith in 1744 in Salisbury, CT. Sarah (daughter of Lieutenant John Smith and Elizabeth Kennard) was born on 15 Jul 1723 in East Haddam, CT; died in 1793. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]
