Colby Family Association
are descendants of Anthony Colby and Susannah Haddon who met and
married in Boston, probably in 1631 or 1632. We honor and revere
their memory. We strive to continue the feeling of family among the
many cousins. And we take pride in the continuance of the Macy-Colby
House in Amesbury.
