The Colby Family Association

We are descendants of Anthony and Susannah Colby 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.

CARNEGIE HERO MEDAL

"BERNARD H. COLBY

Strum, Wisconsin

Bernard H. Colby, 46, farmer, saved Ronald L. Everson, 7, schoolboy, from burning, Strum, Wisconsin, February 9, 1958. Ronald suffered from smoke inhalation but did not sustain any burns. Smoke which Colby inhaled irritated his asthmatic condition and caused coughing spells for two days. Both recovered."

Bernard was born 5/5/1912 and died 3/6/2001. Son of Corliss Thomas Colby and Amelia Alice Wendt.

I am sorry that the Descendants information has been down for such a long time!  But the wait should be worth it!  Many corrections and additional information has been added to existing individuals. AND several of the "orphan" lines have been connected!  Hampton Wilmot is a HERO!  He did some great research and connected his ancestor; as well as many other people's ancestors.

The problem with Ancrestry / Rootsweb appears to be fixed.

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!
