Research Notes Birth - Windsor (not Granby) Granby was not settled until eighty-five years after the birth of Abigail Holcombe, and sixty-five years after the death of Thomas Holcombe. He never lived there. Abigail could not possibly have been born there. Robert Charles Anderson in his Great Migration series shows Abigail Holcombe born at Windsor, Connecticut, 6 Jan 1638/9, citing Connecticut Vital Records, also found in transcription at NEHGR Vol 5 page 63. Abigail's father, Thomas Holcombe, did not purchase his land at Poquonock until 1640, and possibly did not move there until 1649 when other settlers joined him. Poquonock is on the west side of the Farmington River in Windsor, Connecticut. Thomas Holcombe never lived in Granby, Connecticut, which was not settled until 1723, when it was a part of Simsbury, Connecticut which was not settled until 1664. The FamilySearch card showing Abigail Holcombe born in Granby[9] is derived from a large tombstone erected in Granby by descendants of Thomas Holcombe. The many errors on it have been propagated over time and multiplied over the Internet. See Genealogical Vandalism - Thomas Holcombe's Tombstone, by George McCracken, in The American Genealogist Vol. 44, p. 58, January 1968, for details. McCracken, F.A.S.G., F.G.S.P., also documents Holcombe descendants in TAG Vol. 57.
