Mr. Newcomb made several purchases of land in Lebanon, Conn. He gave farms to each of his sons (except his youngest son Simon, who received the homestead), the consideration being “love, goodwill and affection”. Mr. Newcomb’s earliest purchase of lands in Lebanon was made of Israel and Mary Phelps, 26 Sept. 1711, for £290, about 160 acres on the eastward side of town, with the “buildings, orchards, gardens, fences, fencing stuff and fruit trees thereon; also, 50 acres common right, and 30 acres common at the village”. The farm, situated on the south side of Windham road, near Phelps Hill, two miles and fifty-two rods northeasterly from the town of Lebanon, and about three-fourths of a mile beyond the old cemetery, was described then as “butting on the highway that goeth towards Windham northwestwardly, being about one hundred and sixty rods at said highway lying against the heirs of John Hadlock’s land northwestwardly and butting against land of Mr. Samuel Bliss southeastwardly and lying against Able Janes land southwestwardly.”

Mr. Newcomb lived upon this farm, one of the very best in the locality, until his death, when it went by will to his son Simon, by whom it was conveyed in 1761 to Silas Sprague for £750, by whom it was sold the following year to Jabez Dean, of Norwich. Mr. Dean sold it, 1773, by one deed, the purchasers being Daniel and Joshua Lothrop, of Norwich; and Nathaniel Greene, Jonathan Simpson, Esq., John Hancock, Esq. (first president of Continental Congress), and Ebenezer Storer, all of Boston, Mass. The farm was later owned and occupied in part by Asa N. Burgess and F.H. Simpson.

Mr. Newcomb served as a member of various committees in town affairs; in May 1693 had “full power and order for the ordering of the sheep & cattle”; signed a venire as Constable of Chelmark, 1699 (according to Court Record); was chosen to settle bounds of lands in 1704; viewed lands to find Thomas Peas’ dividend on 28 Jan 1705; found records of town’s bounds 5 Mar. 1705/06; in 1710 he was chosen by his townsmen as “Field Driver” at Edgartown. Simon Newcomb took the Freeman’s Oath at Lebanon and was elected highway surveyor in 1714. On 15 Sept. of the same year he was one of a “Comity” of three for building “meetin” house in Hebron, and reported, 5 Oct. following, a proper site for same. In 1718 he was chosen grand juryman; in 1721 he was appointed guardian to Caleb Jones and in 1741 was chosen fence viewer.
