The Colby Family Association

We are descendants of Anthony Colby and Susannah Haddon who met and married in Boston, probably in 1631 or 1632. We honor and revere their memory. We strive to continue the feeling of family among the many cousins. And we take pride in the continuance of the Macy-Colby House in Amesbury.

Lorenzo Colby, son of Lorenzo Colby and Lydia Lord married Elizabeth Hentz Ar Showe on 16 May 1878.

Her father was Oong Ar Showe - from China! Her mother was Louisa Hentz of South Boston.  Their union is believed to be the first between a Chinese person and an American. The Ar-showes were wealthy and highly visible in Malden social and political affairs.

This is the information that we know! 
It is a work in progress and we need everyone to help improve it!

 ALL Colbys identified as descended from Anthony & Susannah Colby are included in the database - but only the known to be deceased individuals  are displayed on-line from this site.  We are trying to identify the individuals who are missing their connections. 

If you can, please help!
