"Source: A History and Genealogy of the Comstock Family in America, by John Adams Comstock. Published by the Commonwealth Press, Inc. Los Angeles, CA 1949. Book found in Ft. Wayne Library."

About 1635, or shortly thereafter, there came from England to Massachusetts settlements one William Comstock. From whence he sailed, and on what ship, has not been ascertained. It is quite probably that with him were his wife Elizabeth and four, or possible all five of his children. It is believed that he first sojourned in the vicinity of Watertown, Mass., but then very shortly he transferred to Wethersfield, Connecticut. It is a matter of record that he held lands on the Connecticut River in Wethersfield in the year 1641, and that these lands had been purchased from one Ric. Milles. Prior to that, he is recorded as having been one the twenty-six men from Wethersfield in the expedition commanded by Capt. John Mason, that captured the Pequot Fort at Mystic, Connecticut, May 26, 1637, killing about five hundred Indians. About 1650 he transferred to Pequot, now New London where he had previously(1647) received a grant of land. At a town meeting held there in November 1650, he voted to cooperate with John Winthrop to establish a corn mill, and in July 1651 he Wrought on the mill dam, with Tabor and other inhabitants of New London. The old mill is still in existence. In 1659 it is recorded that with consent of my now wife Elizabeth; he sold property in New London. This probably indicated that Elizabeth was a second wife.; On February 25, 1661 or 62,; Old Goodman Comstock; was elected Sexton, to order youth in the meeting house, sweep the meeting house and beat outdogs,; at 40 shillings a year, to dig all graves, and have 4s for a grave for a man or woman, and 2s for children, to be paid by the supervisors; The date of his death is unknown, but the History of New London stated that he lived to old age, on Post Hill near the north corner of William's and Bauxhall "Streets. Richard Mylls was plaintiff against William Comstock; and John Sadler, defendants, in an action for slander, August 1, 1644, before the Court of Elections, Hartford, to the damage of 200 pounds. We have, therefore, as the beginning of our record of the Comstock Family in America.

 

His baptismal record appears in Surname Index of Records for 1550-1636, St. Martins in the Field Church, London, England. The text is in Latin: Guilielmus Coomstocke baptized 4 July 1596

 

March 1, 1648/49, he was again bound for Lewis' appearance and also that William Comstock should appear. On June 7, 1649, "Walter Leawis and Mr Trott his security are freed from either of their Recognizances for the said Walter his appearing at this Court," and Mr Trott was also freed from his recognizance for William Comstock. Died in home on Post Hill. Soldier in Pequot War

Notes for Daniel Comstock:

General Notes:

Calkins (History of Norwich) says John Elderkin, carpenter and miller, the first proprietor of the "Cove," emigrated to America in 1637, coming first to Lynn and then to Dedham. Mr. W. W. Chapin of Providence says he was in Providence about 1650 when Daniel Comstock was there. As Elderkin must have had a family at the time, this would furnish a motive for the migration of Daniel from Providence to New London.

Daniel Comstock, Jan. 29, 1646, acknowledges a free grant of 25 A. from Providence.

Daniel Comstock, Providence, June 24, 1648, and other young men arrested for giving a false Indian alarm.

Benjamin Smith and Dan Cumbstock propound their houses with their land to the town (Providence) for sale June 2, 1655.

Ordered (Providence) that Hen. Neale have a six acre lot laid out to him adjoining to his meadow that he bought of Dan Combstock Jan. 27, 1657.

Dec. 19, 1658, New London has given Daniel Comstock 100 A. of upland by the Sawmill brook.

Daniel Comstock purchased, 1664, a farm at Oxoboro, near Uncasville (Hillhouse Geneal., p. 266) some of which land remained in the family as late as 1931. The Comstock Cemetery is located on this property.

Hempstead's Diary, p. 32, says "Old Goodee Comstock died Feb. 21, 1713." This probably refers to Paltiah (Elderkin) Comstock.

"Dec. 17, 1697, Peeter Strickland receipts to his brother-in-law, Daniel Comstock, administrator of the estate of his father, Daniel Comstock, for twelve pounds, for Samuel Young and Thomas Halliox of Southold, L. I., as their wives' part of the estate of their father, Daniel Comstock, deceased." Samuel Young and Thomas Halliox gave an order Oct. 9, 1696, to their mother, Paltiah Comstock, "to pay our patrimony due us, to our brother, Peter Strickland."

Southold, L. I., Sept. 15, 1688; Mary Comstock witness with Anna Youngs.

Inventory, Nov. 13, 1683, of estate of Daniel Comstock, late of New London, deceased. Includes 150 A. bought of Mr. Loveland and 100 A. above Sawmill brook, also 100 A. given by the town above Sawmill brook and forgotten in the inventory; 221 pounds, 17 shillings and 6 pence. Administration to widow "Paltiell" to bring up children, 'till Court order otherwise."

Daniel was referred to by some as "Gideon." He was a volunteer, 1676, in the Narragansett War.

His father later joined the son Lyndon in Lexington, KY. 1800 Census - "Second Census of Kentucky" - William Comstock, Breckinridge County, Paid Tax, 19 Aug 1800 William Comstock was a member of the first town board of Hardinsburg, Kentucky; he was also a member of the first Court of Quarter Sessions for Breckenridge County as shows by the first entry in the Order Book, dated Monday 21 Apr 1800.

 

 

 

Winny Ann Hardin is the daughter of William Hardin and Winifred Holtsclaw. She was born 1776 in Kentucky. She died 1818.

Notes for Winny Ann Hardin:

General Notes:

The McAdam's book shows that Winny Ann died in 1818 leaving a will. Married women of that day could not make a will, so William was deceased by that time. Their youngest child Lavinia was born in August of 1810. C.B. Comstock obviously made an error which was in turn copied by John A. Comstock in his book.

Probate was 7 Jan 1819. Will recorded 18 Jan. 1819 leaves a bequest of $6 for Ephraim, stipulating that he was not to have the care of the two younger children. They were life in charge of Winny's brother, John. When her father dies, he includes Elijah and Lavinia, children of his deceased daughter Winny Ann, but does not mention Ephraim at all.

Notes for Ephraim Flor Hubber Comstock:

General Notes:

Ephriam first lived in Kentucky, later going to Murry and Perry counties, Tenn. He CAME FROM Perry County TO McDONALD County, Missouri ABOUT 1854. He lived here and in northern Arkansas until he returned alone, after the death of his third wife to Kentucky. He was a school teacher and saw active service at the battle of Tippecanoe. Also married Nancy Goodman 14 Oct 1823 in Maury Co. Tennessee.

 

I have been unable to find an explanation for the middle names of Ephraim. The first time the initials appear are on his marriage bond to Nancy Goodman when he writes his own initials as H. F. rather than the F. first. Huber is a German name meaning "farmer". "Flor" is bloom. Was he perhaps a fruit farmer, a truck gardener, a nurseryman? His grandmother Winifred (Holtzclaw) Hardin was German so it's likely he was familiar with at least some of the language.

 

One of the "traditions" of Ephraim Comstock is that he fought in the Battle of Tippecanoe. This is the Battle when William Henry Harrison defeated Tecumseh; campaign from 16 Oct - 24 Nov of 1811. Ephraim would have been approximately 16. I have found two units listed from Kentucky - the Battalion of KY, Light Dragoons under Capt Peter Funk (27 men) and a Company of Mounted Riflemen under Capt. Fred Geiger (62 men).

p.235. Fri 23 Jul 1819. William Hardin Jr against Ephraim Comstock. Jury said Ephraim was not guilty and ordered Hardin to pay his costs. Appeal was filed by Hardin the next day. Hardin appealed to the Court of Appeals of Kentucky and the case was heard 6 Oct 1820. He filed on the grounds that the writ charging trespass, assault and battery, written by William Allen, attorney for Ephraim Comstock, also falsely and maliciously charged him with robbing "Cumstock" of $500 in silver. Allen admitted that he was employed to bring action for assault and battery and had added the robbery without direction from Cumstock. Cases were cited showing that libil cannot be charged for averments in a writ during the course of justice, as

as the client cannot be held responsible for actions of his attorney. No evidence was introduced to show that Comstock himself ever uttered or published slanderous matter. Judge Owsley delivered the opinion that the judgement of the lower court would stand. Another Hardin, probably a kinsman, was the lawyer for William Hardin. [Reporter: 9 Ky. 480]

Court Order Book 3: Apparently Ellen's first husband had children. On 15 May 1820 John Dejarnet, guardian of the infant heirs of William B. Clark, dec'd, commissioners were appointed to settle with Ephraim Cumstock and Eleanor his wife.

John Dejarnet's wife, Judith Clark Moorman, was related to William B. Clark, via the Clark and Moorman families. His son Daniel would later marry Mildred Clark, youngest daughter of William B. Clark & Eleanor Pate.

p.415 Mon 21 Oct 1822. William B. Clarks heirs against Ephraim Comstock. The Court delivered their opinion. We discover the 100 acres Edward Pate had given to the Comstocks in 1819, he had already deeded to William B. Clark, and Eleanor had full knowledge. Sale of the slaves mentioned in the bill was fraudulent and void. The heirs were awarded the 100 acres by 1st January next. Sale of Negroes is to be annulled. The heirs were awarded their costs of the suit.

 

Court Order Book 6, p.26 Friday, 25 Apr 1823. Deed from Ephraim Comstock and wife to the heirs of William B. Clark was recorded. [Someone must have known where to find Ephriam to get a deed signed! Or they forged his signature.] {Kay Haden}

 

Apparently Ephraim and Eleanor were divorced, or simply agreed to disagree, as she married Edward Hamilton in 1825. She must have taken her son Napoleon Bonaparte as he is found living with "Hambltons" in 1850, still in Breckinridge Co KY. At the time Ephraim & Eleanor were separated, divorce could only be accomplished by an act of the legislature and the party at fault could not remarry within the state of Kentucky.

 

{Kay Haden} I found a peculiar court case from the Supreme Court of Indiana, November Term 1830. Recorder: 2 Blackf. 349.

The case was one Elder v. Lasswell & Others. The complainant declared an error in the Perry Circuit Court. There had been a bill in chancery by Elder against Lasswell, Comstock, Chenault & Burke. Arnold Elder, since deceased, executed his note to Lasswell for 550 bushels of corn, but in 1826 before the note came due, they obtained from Chenault & Burke, by assignement, a sealed note executed by Lasswell & one Ephraim Comstock for $1,020.82 due on Mar 1 1820. Lasswell refused to permit this to be set off against the one he held for the corn and has obtained judgment against the complainant for $88. The bill states both Lasswell & Comstock are insolvent and that their joint note could not be set off by the complainant, against him on the note given to Lasswell alone. The prayer of the bill is to allow the set-off. A written objection filed by Lasswell asks that the cause be dismissed for want of equity and he be allowed his costs expended. The Circuit Court dissolved the injunction and dismissed the bill. The decree of the Circuit Court was judged correct and affirmed. Note: A re-hearing was granted but was dismissed by agreement of the parties. The set-off was inadmissible.

That this case discusses the same Ephraim Comstock I have no doubt. He was involved with William Lacewell in the Breckinridge County courts. Chenault & Co. had sued them in 1820, presumably for debt. In 1821, Lacewell was indicted for Felony [about the same time as Ephraim] but he pled not guilty, had a jury trial and was acquitted. Ebenezer Baird sued Ephraim Comstock & William Lacewell for debt and threatened to put Lacewell in jail if he did not pay [Comstock by then was missing from Kentucky] Daniel Martin sued them for debts. There were others. Most ended up stating that Comstock was not an inhabitant of the Commonwealth and orders for him to appear were to be published in newspapers. Lacewell was involved with Comstock in a deed from George Lee that was called a "pretended sale" by the courts and declared void. Joseph Allen, Commissioner was appointed to convey from Lacewell & Comstock to George Lee which was produced in court, April 1822. [Comstock was gone, perhaps Lacewell was as well.] This affair was part of the contention concerning Eleanor's children by William B. Clark.

 

1830 US Census; Carroll Co TN E. "Coomstock" on p.171, Line 24. 3 males under 5 [Leander & Hugh & ??? - did they perhaps lose a child? There's room for one between Caroline & Hugh] 1m 40-50 [Ephraim was 35]; 1f 5-10 [Caroline]; 1f 20-30 [Nancy]. Living next door may be Nancy's mother as there is a widow - Nancy Goodman.

 

1840 US Census; Perry Co TN Ephriam "Humpstock" p.165a on Line 8. Amos Randle whose son would marry Caroline is on Line 17 of the same page. The name is written so tiny it's easy to see why it's been overlooked. Could be Ephraim H.umstock with the "C" missing or cramped into the "H". 2 m -5 [Tom & James]; 2 m 5-10 [Warren & William]; 2 m 10-15 [Leander and Hugh]; 1 m 40-50 [Ephraim]. 1f 10-15 [Caroline] and 1f 30-40 [Nancy] This entry matches the family perfectly - can only be the correct Ephraim Comstock.

Circuit Court Order Book 4, p.215. Wed. 21 Jul 1819. Ephraim Comstock sued William Hardin (Jr or Sr - imposible to tell, but most likely Jr given the next case) for Trespass Assault & Battery. The jury found in favor of Ephraim and assessed damages to Hardin for 1 Cent plus costs.

p.235. Fri 23 Jul 1819. William Hardin Jr against Ephraim Comstock. Jury said Ephraim was not guilty and ordered Hardin to pay his costs. Appeal was filed by Hardin the next day. Hardin appealed to the Court of Appeals of Kentucky and the case was heard 6 Oct 1820. He filed on the grounds that the writ charging trespass, assault and battery, written by William Allen, attorney for Ephraim Comstock, also falsely and maliciously charged him with robbing "Cumstock" of $500 in silver. Allen admitted that he was employed to bring action for assault and battery and had added the robbery without direction from Cumstock. Cases were cited showing that libil cannot be charged for averments in a writ during the course of justice, as

as the client cannot be held responsible for actions of his attorney. No evidence was introduced to show that Comstock himself ever uttered or published slanderous matter. Judge Owsley delivered the opinion that the judgement of the lower court would stand. Another Hardin, probably a kinsman, was the lawyer for William Hardin. [Reporter: 9 Ky. 480]

Court Order Book 3: Apparently Ellen's first husband had children. On 15 May 1820 John Dejarnet, guardian of the infant heirs of William B. Clark, dec'd, commissioners were appointed to settle with Ephraim Cumstock and Eleanor his wife.

We discover the 100 acres Edward Pate had given to the Comstocks in 1819, he had already deeded to William B. Clark, and Eleanor had full knowledge. Sale of the slaves mentioned in the bill was fraudulent and void. The heirs were awarded the 100 acres by 1st January next. Sale of Negroes is to be annulled. The heirs were awarded their costs of the suit.

 

Court Order Book 6, p.26 Friday, 25 Apr 1823. Deed from Ephraim Comstock and wife to the heirs of William B. Clark was recorded. [Someone must have known where to find Ephriam to get a deed signed! Or they forged his signature.] {Kay Haden}

 

Apparently Ephraim and Eleanor were divorced, or simply agreed to disagree, as she married Edward Hamilton in 1825. She must have taken her son Napoleon Bonaparte as he is found living with "Hambltons" in 1850, still in Breckinridge Co KY. At the time Ephraim & Eleanor were separated, divorce could only be accomplished by an act of the legislature and the party at fault could not remarry within the state of Kentucky.

 

{Kay Haden} I found a peculiar court case from the Supreme Court of Indiana, November Term 1830. Recorder: 2 Blackf. 349.

The case was one Elder v. Lasswell & Others. The complainant declared an error in the Perry Circuit Court. There had been a bill in chancery by Elder against Lasswell, Comstock, Chenault & Burke. Arnold Elder, since deceased, executed his note to Lasswell for 550 bushels of corn, but in 1826 before the note came due, they obtained from Chenault & Burke, by assignement, a sealed note executed by Lasswell & one Ephraim Comstock for $1,020.82 due on Mar 1 1820. Lasswell refused to permit this to be set off against the one he held for the corn and has obtained judgment against the complainant for $88. The bill states both Lasswell & Comstock are insolvent and that their joint note could not be set off by the complainant, against him on the note given to Lasswell alone. The prayer of the bill is to allow the set-off. A written objection filed by Lasswell asks that the cause be dismissed for want of equity and he be allowed his costs expended. The Circuit Court dissolved the injunction and dismissed the bill. The decree of the Circuit Court was judged correct and affirmed. Note: A re-hearing was granted but was dismissed by agreement of the parties. The set-off was inadmissible.

That this case discusses the same Ephraim Comstock I have no doubt. He was involved with William Lacewell in the Breckinridge County courts. Chenault & Co. had sued them in 1820, presumably for debt. In 1821, Lacewell was indicted for Felony [about the same time as Ephraim] but he pled not guilty, had a jury trial and was acquitted. Ebenezer Baird sued Ephraim Comstock & William Lacewell for debt and threatened to put Lacewell in jail if he did not pay [Comstock by then was missing from Kentucky] Daniel Martin sued them for debts. There were others. Most ended up stating that Comstock was not an inhabitant of the Commonwealth and orders for him to appear were to be published in newspapers. Lacewell was involved with Comstock in a deed from George Lee that was called a "pretended sale" by the courts and declared void. Joseph Allen, Commissioner was appointed to convey from Lacewell & Comstock to George Lee which was produced in court, April 1822. [Comstock was gone, perhaps Lacewell was as well.] This affair was part of the contention concerning Eleanor's children by William B. Clark.

 

1830 US Census; Carroll Co TN E. "Coomstock" on p.171, Line 24. 3 males under 5 [Leander & Hugh & ??? - did they perhaps lose a child? There's room for one between Caroline & Hugh] 1m 40-50 [Ephraim was 35]; 1f 5-10 [Caroline]; 1f 20-30 [Nancy]. Living next door may be Nancy's mother as there is a widow - Nancy Goodman.

 

1840 US Census; Perry Co TN Ephriam "Humpstock" p.165a on Line 8. Amos Randle whose son would marry Caroline is on Line 17 of the same page. The name is written so tiny it's easy to see why it's been overlooked. Could be Ephraim H.umstock with the "C" missing or cramped into the "H". 2 m -5 [Tom & James]; 2 m 5-10 [Warren & William]; 2 m 10-15 [Leander and Hugh]; 1 m 40-50 [Ephraim]. 1f 10-15 [Caroline] and 1f 30-40 [Nancy] This entry matches the family perfectly - can only be the correct Ephraim Comstock.

Notes for Ephraim Flor Hubber Comstock:

General Notes:

Ephriam first lived in Kentucky, later going to Murry and Perry counties, Tenn. He CAME FROM Perry County TO McDONALD County, Missouri ABOUT 1854. He lived here and in northern Arkansas until he returned alone, after the death of his third wife to Kentucky. He was a school teacher and saw active service at the battle of Tippecanoe. Also married Nancy Goodman 14 Oct 1823 in Maury Co. Tennessee.

 

I have been unable to find an explanation for the middle names of Ephraim. The first time the initials appear are on his marriage bond to Nancy Goodman when he writes his own initials as H. F. rather than the F. first. Huber is a German name meaning "farmer". "Flor" is bloom. Was he perhaps a fruit farmer, a truck gardener, a nurseryman? His grandmother Winifred (Holtzclaw) Hardin was German so it's likely he was familiar with at least some of the language.

 

One of the "traditions" of Ephraim Comstock is that he fought in the Battle of Tippecanoe. This is the Battle when William Henry Harrison defeated Tecumseh; campaign from 16 Oct - 24 Nov of 1811. Ephraim would have been approximately 16. I have found two units listed from Kentucky - the Battalion of KY, Light Dragoons under Capt Peter Funk (27 men) and a Company of Mounted Riflemen under Capt. Fred Geiger (62 men).

Bonaparte Comstock, age 27, is found in the household of Willie Hambleton (p.97A, Household #26) along with Willie's wife Jane and 5 children of theirs. There would be no reason for him to live with a family named Hamilton/Hambleton if his mother had not married for the third time.

Willie Hambleton has two deaf and dumb daughters in the 1850 Census. One, Nancy is 12. Marriage bond record of 6 May 1863 [Bond Book 5] in Breckinridge County is Nannie Hamleton, 21 to Theophilis Hougland, 37. Both lady and gentleman deaf and dumb.

General Notes:

From the Randel family Bible which belonged to Caroline Comstock Randel.

Nancy Comstock - 1805-1855

 

According to family stories, Nancy Goodman was half Indian. The tribe usually named is Choctaw. The Comstock Book says she was reared in Graves County, Kentucky, and the court house "burned" in 1887, but this is not true, and Graves Co was not formed when she was a child - it was still Indian Lands at this time. This was Cherokee Land, not Choctaw. However, during the years of the Indian Removal in Mississippi where the Choctaws were located, many did drift northward into the Tennessee mountains to avoid removal.

 

[Recent DNA test for ethnicity shows that I carry no traces of Indian blood - 100% European descent, making the "Indian" story in the family even less likely than before.]

 

Research in a Kansas City library revealed the marriage took place in Maury Co, Tennessee.

Bondsman was Robert Bates. I have found a marriage of Robert Bates to Mahala Goodman, same location 25 Apr 1819. A good guess would be that Nancy and Mahala were sisters.

In the 1830 census, a widow, Nancy Goodman, was enumerated next to Ephraim Comstock in Carroll Co TN. She could be Nancy's mother.

Many sources say that William and Caroline settle and died in Cherryvale KS. This is in error; it was Cedar Vale, approximately 80 miles West of Cherryvale. Buried in Round Mound Cemetery in unmarked graves with some of their children.

 

G. M. Comstock says after the Civil War they moved to Cherryvale, Kansas, where Caroline died. Found on p. 266 of Deed Book B in McDonald County MO: William R.

Notes for Warren Harris Comstock:

General Notes:

This is the only child of Ephraim & Nancy I could not account for in McDonald Co MO in 1860. He married Minerva Shell. I did possibly find her living under her maiden name in a household with who appears to be a brother and sister.

In Hewett's ROSTER OF CONFEDERATE SOLDIERS, vol. IV, is Warren "A." Comstock, enlisted in MO 3rd Cavalry, Co I, along with James & William D.

National Archives records reveal that Warren H. Comstock enlisted as a Pvt in Capt W. C. Clanton's Co, Greene's Regt, Missouri Volunteers - a company which became Co I, 3rd Regt MO Cavalry. Warren was age 28. He enlisted 27 Aug 1862 in McDonald Co MO with Capt Clanton for 3 years or the war. He received a horse valued at $80 and horse equipment of $12. The Muster Roll was dated 30 Oct 1862 in Fulton Co AR. The Muster Roll for Oct 30 -Dec 31, 1862 stated that Warren "A." Comstock deserted Nov 15, 1862. This was the same unit in which his brothers William and James enlisted, all on the same day. {Kay Haden}

 

 

 

Manerva SCHELL. She was born on 06 Jun 1836 in Missouri. She died on 06 Aug 1921 in McDonald Co., Missouri.

Notes for Manerva SCHELL:

General Notes:

{Kay Haden} In an abstract of the the McDonald Co MO 1870 Census by Janice Soutee Looney: Fox Township 48: Elisabeth Schell, age 51, born MO, with six children from age 22-10 and Minerva, age 32, born MO, and Mary Comstock, age 9. Minerva's name not listed as Comstock in the abstract. This is likely Manerva living back home with her mother. I believe the child's name was actually Nancy, rather than Mary. Film of the census bears out all of the above.

 

I possibly found Manerva & John Fry in 1880, living in Benton Co AR. If so, Manerva had dropped about 10 years off her age.

John Fry, age 37, does wagon repairs, born Illinois, father b. KY, mother b.TN

Manerva, wife, age 33, b. MO, her father b. MO, mother b.TN

George Fry, age 15, son, b. Illinois as were both parents.

Hila Fry, age 13, daughter, b. Illinois as were both parents [George & Hila apparently had a different mother]

Charles Fry, age 7, son, b. MO, father b.. IL, mother b. MO [Probably Manerva's child]

 

Listed with Minerva in the 1870 Census.

Notes for Elijah Thomas Comstock:

General Notes:

Tom Comstock was born in Perry County, Tenn., and is a son of Ephraim and Nancy (Goodman) Comstock. His father was reared in Breckenridge County, Ky., and the mother in Graves County, Ky. Tom was born in 1838, and immigrated to McDonald County, Mo., in 1853, where he remained until nearly grown. When twenty years old he was married to Miranda Brown, daughter of Murphey and Rebecca P. Brown, of McDonald County, Mo. There he remained until the Rebellion, at which time he took his stand with the South, and became a noted element in the cause, not for cruelties or barbarity, but for the noble ambition of maintaining what he believed to be justice toward his people in the South. He was a private in Shelby's brigade of Missouri troops until the last year of the war, when he was transferred to an Indian special service regiment in the Indian Territory. Mr. Comstock during the war was always tender and merciful toward prisoners, women and children. At the close of the war he was disbanded in the Chickasaw Nation, near a place called Oichita; he then went to Lamar County, Tex., where he bought a small farm, on which he lived for [p.1135] over two years, then returning to his old neighborhood in Missouri, but not being satisfied there, he immigrated to where he now resides, in Crawford County, Ark., where has lived for about twenty years, most of which time he has been farming. He has now added the mercantile trade to his business, his qualifications for which are only a common-school education, with a reasonable degree of natural wit, humor and sociability. He has no desire to gamble, but being mixed with Indian blood he has a natural feeling for intoxicating beverages, but is not rude or quarrelsome when he is drinking, but full of love and kindness to his wife and children. He is in easy circumstances, and has a fine residence and a beautiful home on Lee's Creek, one and one-fourth miles from the Cherokee Nation line. He is well known in the country by the old familiar name of Uncle Tom. He delights very much in the comforts of the chase, and frequently he and his old associates, Att Ewing, Bob Lowe, Old Hardy Mattax, Jack Morton and others, go out in the Indian country on a camp hunt, which is a pride in the life of Uncle Tom, and the numerous stories and anecdotes he can tell of the wild forest, the beautiful grass, the rough hills, the jaggy rocks, the howling of wolves, the gobbling of turkeys, the lovely crack of the rifle, the hunter's equipage, the lonesome camp, the opportunity for contemplating the glory of nature, carries with them a love too extensive for utterance. Uncle Tom at times appears to be a little skeptical on the authenticity of the Bible doctrines, but he firmly believes in the power that rules, which he calls God; he does not believe that the devil, or all the devils in hell or on the earth, has ever changed God's course or interfered with His will or Divine planning. In following Uncle Tom's career we find in 1882 he engaged in politics for the first and only time, not solicited by friends, and seemingly no motive in view only curiosity, bringing his claims before the people as an independent Democrat. There were four newspapers published in his county, and they all opposed him; he asked his people to support him as their representative in the State Legislature; he was ably opposed by a statesman, who was the regular Democratic nominee and an able lawyer, and also an independent Republican, who was a lawyer, but, as events proved, he was the choice of his people by an overwhelming majority. While a member of the Legislature he did more for his county than any previous member, placing four leading measures into a law that was stubbornly opposed in the General Assembly, and which his county so strongly favored; these things alone make him a noted and popular man in his county. Uncle Tom is a devoted Mason, seeming to think Masonry gave him his best lessons; he has been several times master of subordinate lodges and often a member of the Grand Lodge of his State. He seems to give the Masonic business too much attention; he is often found in melancholy reflection, when apparently he should be lively and jubilant; he seems to believe in dreams at times and other times appears to be thinking about imaginary pursuits, and even brought to tears over these foolish persuasions.

Notes for Napoleon Bonaparte COMSTOCK:

General Notes:

John Comstock book says Napoleon was born at Cloverport, KY, which seems most likely.

The IGI of LDS has: Napoleon B. Comstock born 1821 Hardin, Marshall County.

Parents: Ephraim Comstock/Mrs. Ellen Clark

 

 

Listed as age 27 in 1850 Breckinridge Co KY Census. Living with Willie Hambleton and family - Willie is likely Bonaparte's stepfather's brother.

Notes for Elizabeth Wyatt NEWMAN:

General Notes:

John Comstock book has Aug 8 1883 as her date of birth which must be a typo. 1838 would make her 12 when she married, so that's not likely either; maybe 1833? Age is stated as 17 in 1850.

Notes for James Harvey Comstock:

General Notes:

After Harve and his brother were deserted by their step-mother, they stayed with their Uncle Sam Comstock but then, he turned them over to another relative. This relative beat the boys, gave them little to eat or wear, and made them do all the work. After five years, they found the courage to make matters known to their Uncle Tom Comstock who, at the point of a gun, took the boys away from that uncle and took them to his own home where they stayed until 1866. Their Uncle Tom was away at the war most of the time so their training was left to his wife and her mother and Harve always said those good women taught him admirably.

In 1866, the boys went to what was known as the Black Farmon Lee Creek where they made a crop with their Uncle Harry Alexander Comstock. In 1871, Harve went to Texas and learned something of the carpenter's trade. He traveled, hunted buffalo, farmed, and finally returned to Crawford County. In 1898, he clerked in the store of his cousins, Monroe and Randolph Comstock, and bought 75 acres 1 1/2 miles northwest of Uniontown. He was years ahead of his time in farming methods and grafting, and his farm was a show place. He clerked in the store for fifteen years and farmed until his last child married. Even in his later years, he was not satisfied unless he had a little patch to cultivate.

At the age of 72 he decided that the farm was too great a burden for him to care for alone, so the old home place was sold and they lived for awhile with a daughter, Mrs. Jim Campbell. They then lived with different children for a while but they soon moved to themselves in Westville, Oklahoma.

On January 22, 1940 Harvey Comstock slipped quietly away to his reward He never grew old but remained a spry and cheerful man until his Maker offered him his reward which he was ready to accept. According to his wishes, he was buried din a little cemetery (New Hope) a few miles from Westville by the side of his mother-in-law, Mary Rose. On Sunday, February 28, 1960 his wife Winnie went home to join him in the land behold. On Tuesday, March 1 she was laid to rest by her beloved husband and mother.

 

{By Kay Haden} The Hugh Comstock family is said to have left Perry Co TN on 25 Nov 1854 in an ox wagon. This is also approximately the date that Hugh's sister Caroline & her husband William Randel & their family made this move. Probably all traveled together.

 

Harve and his brother William were raised by various relatives after their mother died. Gratis Comstock says, first with their uncle Sam, but there is no Sam in this Comstock family. "Uncle Sam" is said to have taken them in 1856 to their Aunt Caroline. In 1860 They were living in McDonald Co MO with aunt Caroline Comstock Randell. William & Harve lived with Caroline until about 1861 when Tom Comstock came and took them to his home. Harve ended up with Miranda Comstock and her mother during the Civil War years. Harve related taking a trip on horseback with Mrs. Brown [Miranda Comstock's mother] to central Arkansas to see other relatives - this would likely have been Mrs. Brown's sister-in-law Jane Davis who lived in Johnson Co AR. Harve also stated that the home in which they lived during the Civil War was burned - this would of course have been Mrs. Brown's [Rebecca P. Jones Brown, wife of Murphy Brown.]

 

In Harve's narrative he also tells the story of Robert Christian, calling him Bob Christie, the man who murdered Murphy Brown & his son Ezekiel during the War. Harve tells of Christian's killing at Fredonia. Although the story is somewhat garbled it is basically correct.

 

In November of 1866, William & Harve left Tom's home in Missouri and moved to Crawford Co AR on Lee Creek, near Natural Dam along with another uncle, Harvey Alexander Comstock. In 1868, William left the area and Harve never saw him again. Harve went to live with Mrs. Hannah Bourne and her son Whitley.

 

On 27 Jan 1870 Harvey was arrested and apparently jailed in Fort Smith for having given liquor to an Indian, Andrew Young, a Cherokee, at Dripping Springs on or about 15 April 1868. $250 bond was posted on the 28th by himself, Silvaner Cox and Marion Warden. This was a violation of the Law governing trade and intercourse with the Indian Tribes. Disposition of the case is not in the file.

 

In the 1870 Census in Lees Creek Twp there is a "J. Gamstock", age 20, living with Hanner Bourn. 13 year old Elias [Bourn] also lived in the house, as does Augusta Daw/Dan who was 15. The spelling and handwriting of the enumerator was poor. Based on location and the information found later in 1880, I feel that this is James Harvey Comstock.

 

In 1871, Harve went to Johnson Co TX where he worked for wages and learned the carpenter's trade. He came back to Crawford Co, living again with Mrs. Bourn. Then in Dec of 1874 he went with Sterling & Ellen Marlock to Wise Co Tx. He lived part of that year with his uncle Harve [Harvey Alexander who must have also come to Texas - Uncle Harve was in Cooke Co TX in 1880]

 

Harve applied for 160 acres of school land in Vansant Co in 1876 and build a small house on the land in 1877. In 1878, he took some of his produce and made a trip to the "buffalo range" between the Brazos and Pea Rivers where he traded with the Buffalo Soldiers and took part in a buffalo kill. In the Spring of 1879, Harve moved back to Lee Creek believing that the Texas summers were bad for his health. He never went back and lost the Texas farm.

 

In the 1880 Census, Harvey was living two households from the family of Nathan Rose and living with the widow Hannah Brown and her son Whitfield.

 

Married to a daughter of Nathan Rose by Samuel Cox, MG, in 1882

 

The 1890 Crawford Co Reconstructed Census has J. H. Comstock in the Rosedale School District at S9,T12,R32.

 

The VAN BUREN PRESS of 27 May 1899, listed J. H. Comstock as a member of the petit jury for the next term of circuit court, to convene June 20th.

In 1871, Harve went to Johnson Co TX where he worked for wages and learned the carpenter's trade. He came back to Crawford Co, living again with Mrs. Bourn. Then in Dec of 1874 he went with Sterling & Ellen Marlock to Wise Co Tx. He lived part of that year with his uncle Harve [Harvey Alexander who must have also come to Texas - Uncle Harve was in Cooke Co TX in 1880]

 

Harve applied for 160 acres of school land in Vansant Co in 1876 and build a small house on the land in 1877. In 1878, he took some of his produce and made a trip to the "buffalo range" between the Brazos and Pea Rivers where he traded with the Buffalo Soldiers and took part in a buffalo kill. In the Spring of 1879, Harve moved back to Lee Creek believing that the Texas summers were bad for his health. He never went back and lost the Texas farm.

 

In the 1880 Census, Harvey was living two households from the family of Nathan Rose and living with the widow Hannah Brown and her son Whitfield.

Notes for James Harvey Comstock:

General Notes:

After Harve and his brother were deserted by their step-mother, they stayed with their Uncle Sam Comstock but then, he turned them over to another relative. This relative beat the boys, gave them little to eat or wear, and made them do all the work. After five years, they found the courage to make matters known to their Uncle Tom Comstock who, at the point of a gun, took the boys away from that uncle and took them to his own home where they stayed until 1866. Their Uncle Tom was away at the war most of the time so their training was left to his wife and her mother and Harve always said those good women taught him admirably.

In 1866, the boys went to what was known as the Black Farmon Lee Creek where they made a crop with their Uncle Harry Alexander Comstock. In 1871, Harve went to Texas and learned something of the carpenter's trade. He traveled, hunted buffalo, farmed, and finally returned to Crawford County. In 1898, he clerked in the store of his cousins, Monroe and Randolph Comstock, and bought 75 acres 1 1/2 miles northwest of Uniontown. He was years ahead of his time in farming methods and grafting, and his farm was a show place. He clerked in the store for fifteen years and farmed until his last child married. Even in his later years, he was not satisfied unless he had a little patch to cultivate.

At the age of 72 he decided that the farm was too great a burden for him to care for alone, so the old home place was sold and they lived for awhile with a daughter, Mrs. Jim Campbell. They then lived with different children for a while but they soon moved to themselves in Westville, Oklahoma.

On January 22, 1940 Harvey Comstock slipped quietly away to his reward He never grew old but remained a spry and cheerful man until his Maker offered him his reward which he was ready to accept. According to his wishes, he was buried din a little cemetery (New Hope) a few miles from Westville by the side of his mother-in-law, Mary Rose. On Sunday, February 28, 1960 his wife Winnie went home to join him in the land behold. On Tuesday, March 1 she was laid to rest by her beloved husband and mother.

 

{By Kay Haden} The Hugh Comstock family is said to have left Perry Co TN on 25 Nov 1854 in an ox wagon. This is also approximately the date that Hugh's sister Caroline & her husband William Randel & their family made this move. Probably all traveled together.

 

Harve and his brother William were raised by various relatives after their mother died. Gratis Comstock says, first with their uncle Sam, but there is no Sam in this Comstock family. "Uncle Sam" is said to have taken them in 1856 to their Aunt Caroline. In 1860 They were living in McDonald Co MO with aunt Caroline Comstock Randell. William & Harve lived with Caroline until about 1861 when Tom Comstock came and took them to his home. Harve ended up with Miranda Comstock and her mother during the Civil War years. Harve related taking a trip on horseback with Mrs. Brown [Miranda Comstock's mother] to central Arkansas to see other relatives - this would likely have been Mrs. Brown's sister-in-law Jane Davis who lived in Johnson Co AR. Harve also stated that the home in which they lived during the Civil War was burned - this would of course have been Mrs. Brown's [Rebecca P. Jones Brown, wife of Murphy Brown.]

 

In Harve's narrative he also tells the story of Robert Christian, calling him Bob Christie, the man who murdered Murphy Brown & his son Ezekiel during the War. Harve tells of Christian's killing at Fredonia. Although the story is somewhat garbled it is basically correct.

 

In November of 1866, William & Harve left Tom's home in Missouri and moved to Crawford Co AR on Lee Creek, near Natural Dam along with another uncle, Harvey Alexander Comstock. In 1868, William left the area and Harve never saw him again. Harve went to live with Mrs. Hannah Bourne and her son Whitley.

 

On 27 Jan 1870 Harvey was arrested and apparently jailed in Fort Smith for having given liquor to an Indian, Andrew Young, a Cherokee, at Dripping Springs on or about 15 April 1868. $250 bond was posted on the 28th by himself, Silvaner Cox and Marion Warden. This was a violation of the Law governing trade and intercourse with the Indian Tribes. Disposition of the case is not in the file.

 

In the 1870 Census in Lees Creek Twp there is a "J. Gamstock", age 20, living with Hanner Bourn. 13 year old Elias [Bourn] also lived in the house, as does Augusta Daw/Dan who was 15. The spelling and handwriting of the enumerator was poor. Based on location and the information found later in 1880, I feel that this is James Harvey Comstock.

Notes for Martha Winney Rose:

General Notes:

Martha Winnie was a very quiet, unexcitable person whose favorite past time was fishing. If she suddenly disappeared from the house and yard, it was almost I 00 percent certain you could find her on the creek bank with her fishing pole in her hand. If you approached her on foot, she would shush you so as not to scare the fish. Sometimes she took her grand children with her and would always require them to sit quietly on the bank. She told them if they ran up and down the bank the fish would all leave and she wouldn't catch a thing. She made a great picture coming up the trail from the creek carrying a whole string of perch, bass and sometimes a turtle. She would dump them all in a big wash pan of fresh water and clean them for a big fish fry.

 

There is a story told by some family members that one day she got bored and made the remark, "I think I'll just set the woods on fire." She went out into the woods, raked up piles of leaves and dead brush and set them on fire. Then she came back to the house and didn't think much about it until the fire got a little out of hand and was beginning to threaten buildings. All the neighbors came out to fight. She and Harvey, her husband were fighting the fire side by side. He was making remarks that the person who set this should be horse whipped. She was going along agreeing with him. She had sworn the person who knew what happend to secrecy, saying, "Whatever you do, don't tell Harve." They finally got the fire out and there was a lot of discussion about the scoundrel who did this dastardly deed. The secret was kept for many, many years. I don't think Harve ever found out that Winnie had set the fire.

 

COMSTOCK

Funeral service for Mrs. Winnie COMSTOCK, Westville's oldest citizen, was held Tuesday afternoon at 2 p.m. in Roberts Funeral Chapel, with the Rev. Luther NELSON, pastor of the First Baptist church officiating. Interment was in the New Hope Cemetery. Mrs. Paul CARRINGTON and Mrs. Carl ISHMAEL, accompanied by Mrs. Grover HOWARD, sang, "Beyond the Sunset," "Land Where We Never Grow Old" and "Lord, I'm Coming Home." Mrs. COMSTOCK died Sunday at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Herman NUNN and Mr. NUNN, with whom she lived. She was born May 2, 1864, in Orange County, Alabama, during the War between the States. With her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Nathaniel ROSE, in 1870 she moved to what was then the "Far West" to Sebastian County, Ark., near Fort Smith where they lived for a short time, then to Lee's Creek in adjoining Washington County, Ark., and lived there and on Cove Creek at Union Town for many years. On December 28, 1879, she married Harvey COMSTOCK, who was a neighbor as well as her childhood sweetheart. It was in the same community they established their home and their ten children were born, all of whom are living. In 1915 Mr. and Mrs. COMSTOCK moved to Westville, where they maintained their home until his death in 1940. She soon went to the home of Mr. and Mrs. NUNN and through the years since has lived there and with another son-in-law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Clifford EDMISTON. Many early days experiences in Arkansas were related by Mrs. COMSTOCK, and always heard with interest by her family and friends. She was a member of the Free Will Baptist Church. The survivors include the ten children, Mrs. Clifford EDMISTON, Mrs. Herman NUNN, Mrs. Rosa EDMISTON, Hardy COMSTOCK and Charley COMSTOCK, all of Westville; Gratis COMSTOCK of Oilton, Texas, Mrs. Jim CAMPBELL of Union Town, Ark.; Mrs. Rena MORTON of Porter, Okla.; Tony COMSTOCK of Marysville, Calif., Mrs. Cora BURGESS of Yuba City, Calif.; 34 grandchildren; 54 great grandchildren and 11 great great grandchildren.

He died Feb 1982 in Muldrow, Sequoyah County, Oklahoma.

Notes for Charles Cornice Comstock:

General Notes:

1900 Census says born in Nov 1889.

 

Charles "Carnice" Comstock registered for the World War I draft in Crawford Co AR, 5 Jun 1917. He stated he was born in Odell, AR. He was a coppersmith Helper for the Missouri Pacific Railroad. He had at that time a wife and two children and claimed exemption because of them. He was described as tall, slender, with blue eyes and brown hair.

 

[In the 1920 Census, I think Charlie is listed unexplainably as JOHN Comstock, age 31, a coppersmith for the Railroad. He is married to Pansy, age 33. Household also includes Pansy, Jr. age 7 and Hazel, age 2 11/12. This doesn't quite work out with the dates of his marriages. Seems unlikely that Pansy could be the child of the first wife Pearl, but she could be Pansy Loveland's daughter by an earlier marriage. The whole situation would be different if he was perhaps not ever married to Pearl Tatum or she died/divorced immediately after that marriage. Or maybe there IS a JOHN Comstock, not yet identified that was married to Pansy and had these two daughters - a completely different person.]

 

I found daughter Hazel, living with an aunt and uncle in Sand Springs, OK in 1930, but I've not been able to find Charles.

 

The Fourth Registration of the Draft for World War II conducted 27 Apr 1942, was sometimes referred to as the "old men's registration" as it was for men born between 28 Apr 1877 and 16 Feb 1897, men between 45 and 64 years old. Charles registered and spelled his name as "Charles Carnice Comstock". Other Comstock records have spelled it "Cornice". The expected date and place of birth was given. He was living in Uniontown, no specific address given. The "Person Who Will Always Know Your Address" was H. M. Campbell of Uniontown. This appears to have perhaps been his employer in Uniontown. His description: Height; 6'3", Weight; 164 lbx, Gray eyes, Gray hair, Light complexion. He had a scar on his right arm. His signature is on the card. {Kay Haden}
