MACOMBER, Eleanor, missionary, born in Lake Pleasant, Hamilton County, New York, in 1801; died in Maulmain, India, 16 April, 1840. In 1830 she was sent by the American missionary board of the Baptist church as a teacher among the Ojibway Indians at Sault Sainte Marie, Michigan After four years' service her health failed, but she connected herself with the Karen mission in 1836, and in the latter part of this year arrived in Burmah. She then settled at Dong-Yahn, about thirty-five miles from Maulmain, and, without a companion of her own race or sex, labored among the adjoining tribes. In less than a year she had established a small school at Dong-Yahn, and formed a church of twenty natives. Her death was the result of a jungle fever that she contracted while she was on a mission to a distant tribe.
