Civil War Union Army Officer. Served as Captain of Company D, 12th New Jersey Volunteer Infantry. He assumed command of his regiment on May 12, 1864 when Lieutenant Colonel Thomas H. Davis was killed leading the charge of the unit's brigade. Captain McComb led the regiment up to the June 6, 1864 Battle of Cold Harbor, where his leg was mangled by a cannon ball and had to be amputated. He died a month later in a Washington DC hospital. His remains were initially buried in the fledgling Arlington National Cemetery, but were removed to the family plot in the Odd Fellows Cemetery in Philadelphia. In 1951, then were again removed to Lawnview Cemetery, where they lie in an unmarked grave. (bio by: Russ Dodge)
