William Eugene Newcomb

William Eugene Newcomb (b. Oct 1851) was the son of William Perry Newcomb (1820-1898) and Catharine Bedell (1826-1895). The old Newcomb books do not indicate that he ever married. B.M. Newcomb said he was unmarried in 1915, living in Pitcher NY. However, in the 1880, 1900 and 1910 censuses there is a William E. Newcomb the right age, father born in Pennsylvania, mother born in New Jersey, living in Pitcher, married. I think it's the same person; he was probably a widower in 1915. In 1920 he appears with a second wife, and in 1930 he is a widower.
