Biography

Name

Name: Nathan Colby

Revised Birth:

Birth 1782
He was probably born in 1781-1782. On the 1830 US Census, Nathan, the oldest male in the house, was between 40 and 45 years old.[1] On the 1840 US Census, the oldest male in Nathan's household was between 50 and 59 years old,[2] and on the 1850 US Census, Nathan said he was 69 years old.[3]
Place: Corinth, Orange, Vermont [1]
Although the Ancestral File shows that Nathan was born in Rumford, Washington County, New York, it is probable that he was born in Orange County, Vermont. In 1777, Ezekiel Colby came to Corinth from Newbury, Orange County, twelve miles away. Ezekiel was the first settler in town.[4] In 1786, Ezekiel Colby, was living in Petitioners Twp., Orange, Vermont[5], and in 1790, Ezekiel was living in Corinth.[6] When Nathan and Eunice were married in Corinth, the Clerk said that both were "of Corinth."[7] Their son Peter was born in Corinth in 1802. Nathan appears to have moved to New York in about 1807, when he established a farm on "Vermont Hill."[8] On the 1850 US Census, Nathan said that he was born in Vermont.[9]

Marriage

Nathan Colby married "Unice" Blood on January 25, 1801, in Corinth, Orange, Vermont. Justice of the Peace Samuel Haselthane(sp?) officiated, and he was also the Town Clerk who recorded the marriage.[10]
"Be it remembered that at Corinth in the county afore said on this 25th Day of January in the year of our Lord 1801, Nathan Colby and Unice Blood both of Corinth in the county aforesaid were Duly joined in Marriage by me. Samll Hasseltine(sp?) Justice of Peace" [11]

Since I began my research on Ancestry years ago, new records have now popped us for Nathan Colby. Originally I too had Rumford, Washing, New York as the birthplace. Ancestry has two conflicting birth records, one for New York and now one for Corinth, Orange, VT, USA. The marriage record also states Nathan was born in VT so I have decided to change my Ancestry tree to the VT birthplace. Eunice was born in VT, they married in VT so it does seem more likely VT was his birthplace.

Nathan is 18 degrees from Cheryl Hess, 19 degrees from John Lennon and 13 degrees from Henry VIII of England on our single family tree. Login to find your connection.
