Hiram Hutchinson "Hy" Newcomb was the son of Henry Cook Newcomb (1818-1885) and Achsah (Brackett) Newcomb (1822-1893), both natives of Maine. Benjamin's parents came west between 1856 and 1859 to settle in Iowa, first in Adams County and later in Cass County.

Mary H. Newcomb 1863 1866

On June 3, 1875, Hy married Harriett "Hattie" Mary Bowles in Cass County, Iowa. By 1880, they had moved to Hollenburg, Washington County, Kansas. They had the following known children:

Nellie Ada Newcomb 1877 1966
Thomas Henry Newcomb 1879 1968

Hy's wife Hattie died in 1893. On March 22, 1894, Hy married Mary (Piert) Pennington (1852-1935) in Hollenburg, Washington County, Kansas. She was a widow with 4 children. Within the next four years, Hy had moved his blended family to Arapahoe, Custer County, Oklahoma. They can be found in the census of that county in 1900 with 4 Newcomb children and 4 Penington children in the home. Some of Hy's siblings and their families also moved to this location in Oklahoma. Hy and Mary Newcomb continued to live in Custer County until their deaths. They can be found in the 1910, 1920, and 1930 census records, living in this location. Mary died in 1935 and Hy in 1936.
