Generation: 1

  1. 1.  Ruth Elizabeth Newcomb was born on 9 Apr 1844 (daughter of Samuel Newcomb and Angeline L. Newcomb); died in 1909 in Plattsburgh, NY.

    Notes:

    1909 At West Plattsburgh, where her ancestors had located on the settlement of the town, Ruth E. New- comb, for thirty-five years the faithful and efficient principal of the Elizabeth street school, passed to her heavenly reward. Miss Newcomb was a daughter of Samuel and Angeline L. (Newcomb) Newcomb. Her paternal grandfather, Dr. Samuel Newcomb, a native of Nine Partners, was a celebrated physician and surgeon and director of the medical college at Montreal. In 1839 he was exiled to Van Dieman's Land for active participation in the Canadian rebellion. After nine years he was pardoned and returned to Plattsburgh, but his last days were spent in Montreal. Miss Newcomb 's maternal grandfather was the Hon. Platt Newcomb. But it was not for her ancestry, but because of her own lovely character and person- ality that Miss Newcomb 's memory will long be held precious in the hearts of hundreds of grateful pupils.

    - Plattsburgh Press Republican, May 16, 1891: Another one of West Plattsburgh's old residents has crossed the river of rest. Samuel Newcomb, Esq., died of progressive paralysis on Snnday morning of last week (May 3, 1891.) His funeral was held at his late residence on the Wednesday following, at 2.30 p.m. Mr. Newcom's oldest son, K. S. Newcomb of Omaha, Neb., and his youngest son, Mr. Levi Newcomb late of Dakota, also his brother-in law, L. P. Newcomb of Foxboroug, Mass., were present at the funeral rites. Rev. F. B. Hall, of the Peristrome church, Plattsburgh, officiated. The remains were taken to West Plattsburgh and Morrisonville Cemetery for burial. Mr. Newcomb will be missed, not alone in his family, but in the whole community. He was a man, who if a friend or neighbor was sick or in trouble, was always willing to extend a helping hand. And while sick himself, before he was stricken down and entirely prostrated, he would sometimes make daily calls on our sick ones, and on others, too, wheere he could. Let him rest.

    - Samuel Newcomb was licensed to practice medicine on Oct. 10, 1812, as published in The Montreal Almanack for Lower Canada Register for 1830.

    - At the birth of his son Joseph on July 13, 1851, from his second marriage, Samuel Newcomb signed the parish ledger. He was 76, and the signature was very shaky. He would die two years later.

    - According to Genealogical Memoir of the Newcomb Family by John Bearse Newcomb 1874, Dr. Samuel Newcomb. Born in Little Nine Partners, North East Princt, Dutchess County, NY May 4, 1775. Married in 1810 to Josepht, daughter of Dr. George Stubinger, b. in Bucherville Parish, Lower Canada; died at Chateaugay Aug. 15, 1835. Dr. Newcomb was a celebrated physician and surgeon; was director of the medical college at Montreal. He remained in Canada until 1839, when he was exiled to Van Diemen's Land (now Tasmania) for actively taking the part of the French Canadians in the Revolution of 1837-38. After remaining nine years, he was pardoned and returned to Plattsburgh, NY; in 1849, he removed to Morristown, NY (where his daughter Mathilda and family resided) and in 1851, to Montreal, where he died Oct. 20, 1853.

    - "History and Biographical Gazetteer of Montreal," 1893, references an "Almanac of A.D. 1813, printed at Quebec," that includes: "We now come to the Doctors, and we find that the whole number in the city was ten, and in the country (district of Montreal) thirty. The city names are : Geo. Selby, Hy. Loedel, John Rowand, F. H. Bender, Daniel Arnoldi, Benj. Green, Grant Powell, D. T. Kennelly, Abner Rice and Rene Kimbert. At the present day not one of these names appears on our medical list; the families have become extinct, or have left the city. Among the country doctors there are some well-known names, which afterwards figured in Canadian History, such as Henry Munro, Wm. D. Selby, Simon Fraser, Henry Carter, Wolfred Nelson and Samuel Newcombe. The last two were well known in the Rebellion of 1837-8. Then besides the doctors there were the apothecaries. There are only three : A. Lyman, George Wadsworth and Moses Nichols."

    - From The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser; Saturday, 19 March, 1842: "J-M'Lean, principal super of convicts office, Sydney. The undersigned prisoners of the Crown have obtained tickets of leave since the last day of publication. County of Cumberland, Parramatta: Newcombe, Samuel (Buffalo.) - The HMS Buffalo being the ship whick took him to Australia.

    - From Darkness to Light by Borthwick J. Douglas, List of prisoners to be transported to Australia - 1839: Samual Newcombe...Doctor

    - Dr. Newcombe was among Canadian convicts arriving on the HMS Buffalo 1839-1840. From 1839 to 1840 a number of convicts were transported from the British colony of Canada (known then as Upper Canada) for taking part in the rebellions against the British crown. 82 were American patriots, who had crossed the border, and 58 were French prisoners from Lower Canada. 5 civil prisoners were also transported.
    The Buffalo departed from Quebec on 28th September 1839, sailed via Rio de Janeiro, and arrived off Hobart, Tasmania, on 11th February 1840. The Americans were disembarked, but the French convicts from Lower Canada were sent on to Sydney, New South Wales. On 26th February the Buffalo arrived in Sydney with the 58 French-Canadian political prisoners, who were interned near present-day Concord, resulting in the naming of Canada Bay, French Bay and Exile Bay. They were apparently treated much better than the Americans; they were liberated sooner, and assisted in getting home.
    All the prisoners arrived aboard the ship "Buffalo" in 1840 after having been convicted at Montreal, Canada, in late 1838 or 1839.
    When the Americans from the Buffalo arrived in Hobart, they found others who had been transported via the hulks in England, making a total of 92 "Patriot exiles" in VDL. Of these, fourteen died as a direct result of transportation and the rigours of penal servitude. By the end of 1844 half of those in VDL had been granted pardons. Nearly all were pardoned by 1848, but five remained in penal servitude until at least 1850. None of those pardoned chose to stay in Tasmania.

    http://www.memoireduquebec.com/wiki/index.php?title=Newcombe_(Samuel)

    - Australian convict index lists Samuel Newcombe, age 65 in 1840, birthplace NY State, Nsw; status: M 3m 2f, ship: Buffalo, occupation: surgeon.

    - Originally American, Samuel Newcomb is the son of Cyrinius Newcomb and Anne Norris. He speaks English and is Catholic. In 1810, he married in Chambly to Joseph Stubing (Lepailleur.) We can assume he learns from his stepfather, Dr. George Stubinger. He practices medicine first in Boucherville, then Chateauguay, where he remains until the unrest in 1838. He had three sons and two daughters and became a widower in 1835. His three sons, Henry, George and Samuel, also take part in patriotic activities. The properties of Dr. Newcomb are burned during the rebellions. Bck from Astralia, he remarried at the age of 77 to Onesimus Loranger in Montreal. He had a child from that marriage: joseph Newcomb (Lepailleur.)
    It seems that the activities for the patriot cause of Dr. Newcomb date back to 1837. His name is identified in newspapers as a signatory to an invitation to Saint Constant and Montreal. The event "which makes us more Dr. Newcomb" is the attempt to disarm Sault St. Louis. His son Henry, probably the elder boy, aged about 30 years in 1837, is clearly present with his father in Chateauguay in 1838. The depositions are full of complaints against him because of recruitment exercises for local hunters. As for son Samuel, political activities in which he participates are not clear. By consulting the lists of prisoners, we know that he is in prison for a period and lives in Mongreal. In his voluntary review Dec. 11, 1838, we know that Samuel Newcomb's son claims to be 24, working for Mr. Donegani. He wants to return to the U.S. to join his wife at her permanent residence in Plattsburg, NY. He added that he was taken prisoner Nov. 4, 1838.
    Samuel concludes by saing that his father is anxious to return to the U.S. This implies that they frequently cross the border. The third son, George, who resided at Chateauguay, also visited the prison. His name appears in a voluntary review as the young George Newcomb and information suggests that George was present along with his brother Henry and his father, Dr. Samuel Newcomb, during the expidition to Caugnawaga. On Nov. 3, with her son Henry Duqeutte and Cardinal, Dr. Newcomb discussed the strategy to go and find reinforcements at Beauharnois or Laprarie. Finally, not following the orders of Robert Nelson, it was decided nevertheless to go disarm the Indians of Sault St. Louis (Caughnawaga.) On the afternoon of Nov. 3, Henry put all his energies to collect those who had taken an oath. They decided first to monitor loyal posting sentries near the bridge. At about two or three hours, the four leaders, accompanied by 150 men and Henry Newcomb armed with a sword, walked towards Caughnawaga. In the early morning they arrivede at Sault. Dr. Newcomb and his associates tried to negotiate with the Americans; son Henry at this moment was in the woods with a majority of the troop. However, 65 were taken prisoner and then delivered to the authorities. According to Sellar, a Newcomb managed to escape. Henry was in the prison of Saint-Ours until June, 1838 and was transferred to a new prison in Montreal. He received his sentence of high treason in the same month and was to be released on bail. George was also imprisoned at Montreal. He will be acquitted and released.
    Dr. Newcomb refuses any cooperating with the authorities and on Dec. 18, 1838, received the verdict of the death penalty, but he is finally deported. When learning the news, he was very surprised and almost despaired. "The Canadian" reports that "all have shown firmness and Dr. Newcomb, despite his relatively advanced age of 65 or 66, and a health issue for which there are fears for his life, was also courageous. Thanks to newspapers of his companions in exile, we learn that Newcomb is very ill and suffers from asthma problems during the trip. He is so close to death that they feared for his life at any moment. He will not participate in the Saturday task of brushing the floor. On Feb. 24, 1840, he was very shocked against Lepailleur as the latter made to sign a letter of thanks to the master and doctor of HMS Buffalo. He practiced medicine for free. Lepailleur reports that Newcomb is caring for his sick companions and he does his best to treat them, especially Louis Jones and Gabriel Ignatius Chevrefils, who both died in Australia. Later, he practiced medicine in Sydney with Dr. Moris. Lepailleur reports that they are very badly housed because the government does not pay cash. In December 1842, Newcomb gets a response from the government because he and Hector Pierre Morin live in extreme poverty; the gov't provides goods and money to pay their rent.
    Samuel Newcomb returned to Canada in 1848 at age 74. He died in 1866 at age 92 or 93 by entrusting his son Joseph Charles Marshall (Lepailleur.)

    - "Andrew Newcomb and His Descendants," by Bethuel Merritt Newcomb, New Haven, CT, 1923, has children of Dr. Samuel Newcomb included Elizabeth, b. July 10, 1812, died Sept., 1846, m.

Generation: 4

  1. 8.  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. 9.  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.

  3. 10.  Jean George Stubinger was born on 23 Mar 1757 in Ober Floersheim, Germany (son of Johann Heinrich Stubinger and Louise D'Alberg); died on 8 Jan 1822 in Boucherville, Quebec.

    Notes:

    - Dr. Johann George Stubinger was born Aug. 24, 1759, at Ober-Floersheim, Germany, the son of Heinrich Stubinger and Louise Dalberg. He was raised there and followed in his father's footsteps as a surgeon. This area of Germany is in the Rhenish Hesse wine region, about 30 miles southwest of Frankfurt, and about 40 miles from the French border.
    In 1779, at only 19 years old, the young doctor volunteered for military duty in support of the British in the American Revolutionary War, though he never saw action. He joined a company of the Hessen-Hanau Chasseur Corps commanded by Lt. Col. Carl Adolf Van Creutzburg. This unit was known as the Chasseurs, also commonly called the Jaegers. It was an independent battalion offered to the Brisith Crown as part of the German Allied contingent fighting against the Americans. The Brisith Army engaged in treaties with a number of German principalities which provided contingents of Hessian troops for service in North America in return for cash.
    Four units of this corp, all conscripts, arrived in Canada in the summer of 1777 and became part of General Burgoyne's army. However, Dr. Stubinger was part of a fifth unit, not organized until 1779 and composed entirely of volunteers, most of whom were experienced hunters and outdoorsmen who adopted easily to the kind of life in Canada's wilderness - many of them, after the war, remained in Quebec and joined the voyagers of the Hudson Bay and North-West fur traders.
    This fifth unit, under command of Captain Hugget, arrive in Quebec at the end of August, 1779. On Sept. 17, it received orders to march from Quebec City to Sorel, a point on the St. Lawwrence River north of Montreal. The entire Corps spent the winter of 1779-1780 at La Prairie, on the St. Lawrence opposite southeast Montreal. The next winter was spent at Chateauguay to the southwest of Montreal, and after the Treaty of Paris ended the war in 1783, the unit was repatriated, though about half of the entire corps chose to remain in Canada.
    Dr. Stubinger practiced medicine in the Montreal area and in June of 1786, at age 27, married Marie Anne Quintalle. Tragically, only a month later, she died, and the following year on Jan. 29, 1787, he married into the prominent Boucher family (pronounced BooShay) by wedding Dame Marie Anne Charlotte Boucher, then 21. The Bouchers were among the earliest settlers of Canada and founded Boucherville, Quebec. The progenitor of the family, Pierre Boucher, was governor of the Trois-Rivieres (Three Rivers) colony which he saved form invasion by the Iroquois, and was made a noble by Louis XIV.
    Dr. Stubinger and his wife had 11 children, all born at Boucherville - seven died in infancy. In the War of 1812, he was listed as an assistant surgeon in the militia. In 1816, he was living in Hinchinbrook, Quebec, just four miles north of the New York State border and to the northeast of Malone, NY. He died Jan. 8, 1822 at Boucherville.
    Dr. Stubinger's first child, daughter Josepthe Louise Luce Stubinger, was born May 7, 1790 at Boucherville and on Sept. 4, 1810, married Jean Samuel Newcomb, also a physician who studied under his father-in-law. While his father-in-law was aligned with the British during the Revolutionary War, Samuel Newcomb's family - also including many physicians - fought for America. Indeed, Dr. Newcomb took part in the rebellion against Brisith rule in Canada in 1837 known as the Patriot War, was tried and convicted as a traitor to the Crown, and sentenced to imprisonment in Australia, from which he survived and returned to Canada.

    Hanau is a town in the Main-Kinzig-Kreis, in Hesse, Germany. It is located 25 km east of Frankfurt am Main (The Book The Hessians of Quebec GERMAN AUXILIARY TROOPS IN CANADA 1776-1783. ) From the Principality of Hessen-Hanau: Hessen-Hanau Chasseur Corps, commanded by Lt. Col. Carl Adolf v. Creutzburg. Chasseurs, also commonly called Jaegers/Yaegers, even ‘green Jaegers, four companies left Hanau before the 1 April 1777 and passed inspection at Nijmwegen, Holland on the 12 April. After a short layover in Newfoundland in mid June, the last ship of the fleet docked in Quebec on the 12 July 1777. One company which had arrived earlier took part in the expedition to Fort Stanwix, and took part in the battle of Oriskany, when they were forced to return having lost five men and much of their equipment. The Hanau Chasseur Corps remained as garrison troops in Canada, Their strength increased by a new fifth company under Captain Hugget, which arrived in Quebec at the end of August 1779. Most of these men had signed up voluntarily for duty in America, and therefore are the only ones which could be considered to be mercenary soldiers. Among them many experienced hunters and outdoors men, who adopted easy to the kind of life in Canada’s wilderness. Many of them after their release in Quebec joined the voyagers of the Hudson Bay and North-West fur traders. Much more research is needed to find these men.
