Happy 232nd Birthday, Cousin George Washington Comstock!

232 years ago, 5 February 1789, in Smithfield, Rhode Island, my first cousin, 6 times removed, George Washington Comstock, was born to Ichabod and Sarah Jenks Comstock. His parents were part of the new country that apparently revered George Washington.

George married Comfort Joslin and they were the parents of a number of children. Based on information on the grave marker, they had three that died in infancy. I have found three more that grew to adulthood: Benjamin Joslin (1818), Nancy E (1821) and Sarah (1827). George married again after Comfort’s death in 1834. He married Sarah Jenks, a cousin.

George died on 16 November 1858, and was buried in the North Burial Ground in Providence Rhode Island along with both wives and daughter, Sarah.
