The MACOMB (aka McCOMB) letters 1757-1760, Albany New York
Note from Murray McCombs, donator of the index:
This doctoral dissertation (1990) can be purchased from
University of Michigan (UMI). Since the reviewer (Marshall
Lloyd, a direct descendant of Catharine NAVARRE, mother to
General MACOMB, War of 1812) that brought this to my
attention mentioned that it was 800 pages in length, but my
bound copy (in 3 volumes) runs 1700 pages, I'd strongly
suggest ordering the bound copies (only a few dollars more).
The loose leaf could quickly become frustrating. The cost of
bound copy was $US 57.00 including postage and GST.
It appears the index is related to the 1757-60 timeframe and
doesn't address all of the prodigious amount of colateral
material that follows each letter. The author attempts to
integrate events leading up the ARW.
MERCHANT AND REDCOAT: THE PAPERS OF JOHN GORDON MACOMB,
JULY 1757 TO JUNE 1760 (NEW YORK, BRITISH ARMY). MEANY,
JOSEPH FRANCIS, JR., PHD. FORDHAM UNIVERSITY, 1990. 1821
pp. Advisor: JONES, ROBERT F.
This Dissertation claims to be the only scholarly written
history about early Albany NY life (he states previous
attempts by author and book title). The background to the
MACOMB letters and who the people where is truly amazing.
Exchange rates are quoted throughout. A very good overview
of earlier Dutch colony life is well examined.
Though most of this index covers the French and
Indian wars, the preamble is a scholarly description of life
and times of Albany NY leading up to the American
Revolution. Some personages may have supported the King
during the ARW.
