Baptist Newcomb Book

Descendants of Baptist Newcomb

In 1874, John Bearse Newcomb published his Genealogical Memoir of the Newcomb Family in which he attempted to include “records of nearly every person of the name in America from 1635 to 1874.” The present work starts with JBN’s description of the Baptist Newcomb line, including his notes and comments. It has been updated and corrected based on subsequent research and documentation from a number of sources, including the family records of present-day descendants of Baptist Newcomb as well as published reports, census records, etc. With this new information, we can now follow this family through the twentieth century.
