Civil War Union Army Officer. He was mustered in as 1st Sergeant of Company H, 10th New Jersey Volunteer Infantry on October 31, 1861, serving with the regiment until August 22, 1862, when he was transferred to thew newly-formed 12th New Jersey Volunteer Infantry, and was commissioned 2nd Lieutenant of Company E. He rose to Captain and Company D, and 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 during the Battle of Spotsylvania. 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)
