  • Notes 
    • Hezekiah took the “Freeman’s Oath” in Lebanon and held various town offices there. From various sources comes the tradition that Mr. Newcomb was a deacon: he was held in high veneration by his neighbors, his children and grandchildren. Isaac Foster, of Spencerport, N.Y., states that he was told by his grandmother, Submit (Downer) Newcomb, “that during the whole time of her having her ten chilren at his [Hezekiah Newcomb’s] house, she never heard him speak an angry word. The whole day long he would most always have his Bible in his hands.”
