  • 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. sin00tuttiala_djvu.txt
