Lora Newcomb (b. 1849)

Lora Newcomb (b. 24 Apr 1849) was the daughter of Silas Austin Newcomb (b. 22 Feb 1911) and Adelia Experience Osborn (b. 11 Sep 1824). She married Almon F. Hoyt, who was born around 1846 in Vermont.  B.M. Newcomb stated that because of her husband's death, Lora "lost her mind". He did not give a year for Almon's death (although he placed it in Albuquerque). In the 1900 census, in Walton Co. FL, there is a Lora N. Hoyt, born April 1848 in Michigan, parents born in New York, married for 14 years to Francis M. Hoyt, a carpenter born May 1850 in Vermont, parents born in Vermont. (In the 1910 census his name is written as Flavius Hoyt). Perhaps Lora recovered her mind and married another Hoyt.
