The Colberts were the first to arrive from Ireland, around 1843. John Colbert came to New York and settled in East Harlem. His wife, Mary Coleman arrived in the early 1850s. They probably married in New York. John worked as a milk dealer and died in 1865 when his horse was startled by the “dummy” engine on the second avenue railway and threw him. He died from injuries when he fell under the wagon.
John and Mary had 5 children – three survived. Their son John was born in April 1858 and baptised in St. Paul’s Church on East 117th Street. He married Mary Ashe (Nash) around 1883 who had emigrated from Greenan, County Meath with her mother and brother. For some reason the family changed their name from Ashe to Nash.
