Hubert F. Holcomb enlisted at Hartford, Connecticut on September 25, 1861 and was enrolled as a private in Company C, 8th Regt. Conn. Volunteers; he was honorably discharged at Bermuda Hundred, Virginia September 25, 1864. Ath the beginning o fmilitary duty he was 5 feet 9 inches high, light complexion, grey eyes, light hair; his occupation was a farmer. When he applied for a pension on November 7, 1893 he stated before a Justice of the Peace, "I have suffered from rupture or hernia for nearly or quite thirty years. I am obliged to wear a truss continually - without a truss I'm totally disabled - by wearing a truss I am able to do some ligyht work - but even my disability from this caluse alone is as much or more than one half. It is my belief that I contracted hernia in the service at the seige of Fort Macon, NC in the spring of 1862, by marching on the sands of Bogue Banks when tightly belted, and by working nights upon the entrenchments. I am totall y deaf in my left ear. I also sufer from Bronchitis, Rheumatism and Catarrh. From these causes I was disabled from earning a support by manual labor in a degree entitling me to a pension on September 5, 1890. This statement was made by me to Henry R. Joens, JP who wrote it. I was not prompted by anyone or by any written or printed statement."

from Eva's obituary:

Mrs. Lovell's father, Hubert Hldomb, while serving in the Civil War, received injuries which resulted in the loss of his speech and necessitated his transfer to the commisary department. He rercovered sufficiently to be able to whisper but could not speak aloud. After his discharge and return to new hartford and while taking care of a spirited horse, he was kicked by the animal. Although not seriously injured, he was so enraged that he shouted at the horse with all his old time vigor.

It was expected at the time that the horse was so frighjtened at the unaccustomed sound that it stood trembling in tis stall. Mr. Holcomb never had any further trouble with his voice. Hubert F. Holcombe was born on 19 March 1840 at New Hartford, Litchfield Co., CT. He was the son of Friend Holcombe and Susan Serepta Beach. Hubert F.

Golden Wedding Anniversary

On Wednesday, November 10th, Mr. and Mrs. Herman A. Holcomb celebrated their fiftieth anniversary of their wedding at the home of their son, Worthington E. Holcomb, who with his family, now occupies the old home on West Hill.

The weather maker had apparently made special arrangements for the occasion, for the sun shed its golden effulgence unstintingly and aided materially in making it a day of joy and gladness and good will.

Throughout the day from early forenoon until evening, friends and neighbors continued to arrive to offer congratulations and tender substantial tokens of esteem and good will to the honored couple. And it was a goodly sight to see the children and grandchildren (who collectively number 31) gathered in harmony at the old home to pay tribute to their aged parents, and it was regretted by all that it was physically impossible for the old gentleman to be present, he being confined to his bed at the home of his son, E.B. Holcomb of New Hartford, the latter with his family remaining with him during the day.

The reception and dining rooms which, by the way, more apparently built at a time when large families were in style, were tastefully decorated in golden autumn leaves and evergreens, the work of Mrs. Anna Smith and Mrs. W.E. Holcomb. Over the mantle on the wall of the dining room between large portraits of Mr. and Mrs. Holcomb was suspended a bank of evergreen from the midst of which shone out in golden figures the inscription "1859-09" which with other decorations, including a large bunch of giant golden Chrysanthemums, gave the room a very pleasant appearance surpassed only by the bounteous display of Mrs. W.E. Holcomb's culinary art with which the tables were laden. Placed in supreme command overawing in majesty, directly in front of Mrs. H.A. Holcomb's place at the head of the table was a huge wedding cake, crowned with the legend "50 Years" which succumbed to a protracted assault that occurred at 1 o'clock before a company of about thirty and made an unconditional surrender to a host of 63 who surrounded the tables at the evening dinner.

Mr. and Mrs. Holcomb were married at the parsonage in Nepaug fifty years ago and with slight interruptions have lived continuously in this community. It was remarked that of those present but three or four were residents here at the time of the wedding. The gifts included many articles suitable for the occasion besides $51.50 in cash, including $30 in gold.

The children and grandchildren present were Mr. and Mrs. W.E. Holcomb and children Clifford, Ellis and Howell; Mr. And Mrs. Louis Herman Holcomb and children Burton, Alma and Cornelia, Burton C. Holcomb of Torrington; Mr. and Mrs. Frederick Mortimer Holcomb of Southwick, Mass. and children, Winifred, Harold, Ralph and Maud.

The affair was pronounced an entire success and after an evening of social intercourse and music the guests departed amid expressions of good cheer, "many happy returns" etc.

The following copied from the Winsted Citizen 1910

Herman A. Holcomb of Pine Meadow Ground to Pieces on Central
New England Railway About One Mile Above New Hartford - Lost
His Way Trying to Reach Son's Home.

Special to the Citizen

New Hartford, Aug. 13 - While relatives and friends were searching last night for Herman A. Holcomb, 76, a retired farmer, an engine running light on the Central New England railway struck and killed the aged man, who had wandered upon the tracks. His mangled remains were discovered later in the night by the crew of another train but the victim's family did not learn of the tragedy until after daybreak this morning, when they were informed by Undertaker Gates, to whose rooms the dismembered body was removed after being viewed by Medical Examiner Swett.

The body was mutilated beyond recognition and identification was established by means of the clothing he wore. The head and body were terribly crushed, one arm was completely severed and a leg almost cut off.

Of late Mr. Holcomb and his wife had been living in Pine Meadow in a house with F.L. Dutton. yesterday Mr. Dutton drove the couple to he house of their son Edgar B. Holcomb, who resides on the east side of the Farmington river in this village, where they intended making a few days' visit. About 5 p.m. father and son went out for a walk and on the return trip the parent started through a meadow, saying he was gong to take a short cut home. When supper hour came and he had not reached home, the son and other members of the household became worried and started out in quest of the missing man. Meadows and old, unoccupied buildings in the neighborhood were searched, but no trace of the older Holcomb was found, although the hunt was kept up until after nightfall.

It is supposed that the aged man became bewildered and crossed the bridge near the Greenwoods dam and finally strayed upon the railroad. he met his death about 100 rods north of the Jahne place.

Mr. Holcomb was born on West Hill, where nearly all of his life was spent. Mr. and Mrs. Holcomb observed their golden wedding anniversary Nov. 10, 1909. Besides a wife, he leaves five sons and a daughter, Edgar B. of this village, W.E., who resides at the old homestead on West Hill; B.C. who is traveling; L.H. of the Colebrook road, Winsted and F.N. of Hoskins Station and Mrs. Josephine E. Gray of Torrington.

The funeral will be held at the home of his son Edgar, Sunday or Monday.
