|Richard "Carpenter Dick" Holcombe + Elizabeth Closson|
Mary R Holcomb
At her home, North Chancelor street, Newtown, on the night of November 30, occurred the death of Mary Holcombe, an estimable woman, who had long resided in Newtown, but was not very widely known, because of her crippled condition, which had existed from birth, and which had prevented her from going from home or mingling much with those outside her family circle. It will be 29 years next spring since the deceased with her sister-in-law, Phebe E. Holcombe, and the latter's family, came to Newtown from near Gardenville, Plumstead township, occupying the house in which they have ever since resided.
Miss Holcombe was 76 years of age, and a daughter of Charles Holcombe, Sr., who died on this place, "Prospect Farm," on the Durham road, just below Gardenville, in the summer of 1881. Her mother was Mary Robinson, the second wife of said Charles Holcombe, Sr. Her brother, Charles, Jr., died a few years earlier. Ther nearest relatives of the deceased are the sister-in-law, before mentioned, and her children - Reuben Holcombe of Rutledge, Pa; Mrs. J. C. Burrill, Newtown, and Rev. Charles T. Holcombe, of Pulaski, N. Y. She was a member of the Newtown M. E. Church.
