The last name is Newcomb but it isn't the real last name. There were three children about 1845 that were adopted or taken as wards and their names were changed to Newcomb. I do not know what it was before. The story is that the parents died or were killed and they were taken in by a family in Duplin County. I think they lived in Duplin County before the death of their parents. My Great, Great Grandfather was James Newcomb and died in Wayne County.
