Hi! I'm looking for information regarding a Thomas J. Coombes born 1822

Subject: [COMBS-L] Letters
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit

Having studied the letters so kindly sent by Anne Musser, do I dare come
with what I have on these families? Be aware that this is not my direct
Combs line but only the result of research done many years ago (before I
got totally burned out on Combs and quit). I guarantee nothing.

On T E Anderson's letter, he starts with John of Stafford County VA to
Lexington KY. John married Sophia Bullitt. John was allegedly the son of
Joseph who was allegedly son of immigrant John and Ann Mason. Please
note the "allegedly". I wrote a note long ago saying that I do not
believe Joseph is John's son. He is not named in John's will dated 11
Dec 1716 according to an abstract in "Wills of Richmond County VA 1699 -
1800" by Headly.

Joseph is said to have been born before 1685 in King George County VA
and died ca 1756. He lived on Aquia Creek, Stafford County VA. He had
Joseph md Elizabeth Harrison, John md Seth Bullitt, and Jane/Jean md
Capt. John Ashby.

The rest of the descendants are pretty much as listed in the letter. I
do have details on them if wanted.

The other letter about the two Cuthberts is a puzzler. According to what
I have Dr. Ennis Combs, 1795-1849 (md Mary Sydnor Hinde 1817) was son of
Cuthbert who md Sallie Evans. However, I have that Cuthbert's father as
John who md Seth Bullitt (see above). It would confirm my doubts about
Joseph if Cuthbert's father was Cuthbert. Must go looking for an older
man. Also, the older Cuthbert could be John Cuthbert Combs but I have
seen no hint of that. Why would all of his legal papers say John and all
of his family know him as Cuthbert?

Now, about Dr. Ennis Combs. The letter-writer says he had son Ennis. I
will wager this is fact. I have only Fielding A who md Elizabeth F
Carthrae and Silas who md Martha Jane Prewitt. However, both those men
were born after 1820. The 1820 Montgomery County KY census shows Ennis
with one male and one female under ten. That makes room for Ennis Jr.
for sure. Can anyone say who Ennis Jr married and when? I am checking my
"miscellaneous marriages" but not yet finding him.

I have tried to be brief. E-mail is not conducive to long epistles. If
anyone has specific questions, I will be glad to see what I might have.
One thing for sure, I have more confidence in those old letters than in
much of what we must use for research some 200/300 years after the fact.
But, they did also get confused. My father had errors of fact in his
paper about his father's siblings.

I also have a copy of a letter written by one Leslie Combs of L.A.
Calif. in 1933. He has a chart that he says his father made him and his
brother memorize about their family. It throws a humongous curve into
everything that we have on this line. He starts with Capt Samuel R Combs
of Clark County KY and goes back through Capt. Benjamin, Joseph, Andrew
and Richard the immigrant. I can make nothing of this.

Enough. Hazel

Hi All!

I have more letters that were sent to me, but for some reason my scanner
doesn't want to work now. I'll figure it out and then send some more,
hopefully tomorrow. These letters were sent to me just as I am posting
them. I don't know how correct they are. I am sending them as they are
without any corrections. Some of them seem to be written by older people
who are telling what they know from memory, and we all know how our memory
gets as we get older---so, don't swear by them---There are some comments on
some of them from other members of the family about corrections, etc., but
not on all of them.

<John married Sophia Bullitt.> Correct this first. It was my error. The
old brain is confused today.

As to the Cuthberts, the list you give is correct. However, the letter
speaks of Dr. Ennis as being son of Cuthbert (that would be 1745-1815
Cuthbert) and then says this Cuthbert was son of a Cuthbert from
England. Or, is the old brain more addlepated than I think? The
multitudinous Combses always throw me into a tizzy.

Barbara, just curious. What is the "Southwestern Bell Internet Services"
on your mail? Do you work for them? Or, does telepath travel through
SWB? Like I said, just curious. Always wanting to know how things work.

Thanks. Hazel

Hi, Combs Cousins. Two important "tech" items, but first:

Thanks, Denise for Oxfordshire! Will race to finish EN today now. Thanks,
Ann, for these letters -- they're great! (And see below). Hazel: Welcome
Aboard, and if you have old letters yourself, please join the rest of us in
posting them. Ditto for all of you. These old letters truly are valuable --
Same goes for Bible records, etc. I've much more in re this past month's
postings that I desperately wish I could reply to, but _must_ finish our
web pages for move next Tuesday first <EEEEEEEEK!> Then hopefully I can get
back to business <g>

Back to "tech stuff:"

(1) There was a giant (humongous was the word Brian actually used, I
believe) SPAM-ISH happening on RootsWeb earlier today (I'm not certain when
-- "this morning" which could mean any time after midnight, which may have
caused some postings and/or digests and/or partial contents of same, to
have not made it through our list server so (a) if any of you have posted
today and not seen your posting come through, then you may need to receive
it; and (b) I think(?) digests have come through okay so far, but if not
(something missing, etc.), please let me know?

(2) As of yesterday, RootsWeb's list server will no longer accept any
postings which are not Plain Text. Since 99% (or more) of you on our list
are already using Plain Text, this shouldn't be a problem. However, if your
email program is set to Anything Else (Rich Text Format, HTML format,
etc.), which means that it _may_ have been unreadable by some of the rest
of us in the past -- well, it will definitely be unreadable to the rest of
us now -- because it simply won't be delivered. It will be returned to you
with a message directing you to:

http://www.rootsweb.com/rootsweb/listowners/html-off.htm

Where you'll be shown HOW to turn off "formatting" options in your email
program.

You will also receive back any emails that include file attachments. On our
list we've never "permitted" file attachments anyway -- instead those are
to be sent directly to your list admin (moi) -- primarily because not all
email programs permit file attachments; however, the new RootsWeb overall
ban on file attachments was also to save on server use (you may only send
one file attachment, but it has to be "re-sent" to the entire list). As to
the new overall HTML (formatted) text ban, that was done at the request of
100% of us list admins, for whom it was an individual nightmare (especially
those who have Giant Lists with thousands of subscribers, etc.)

If this second part doesn't make sense, not to worry. If it happens to you,
you'll get an email of explanation.

And now, I'm off to finish writing and posting a HURRAH!!! GREAT NEWS!!!
announcement for you all, after which it's back to the web page mines....
(Some of you will simply go Ga-Ga over the HURRAH!!!, I promise <VBG>)

Sincerely,

Carole Hammett

You are right about memories but I still trust what the old folk wrote
against records which have been handed down, copied, recopied, and
abstracted, ad infinitum.

Thanks for what you have sent. Gets me back into Combs. Not sure I
belong there but there I am. All because I think your web page is the
greatest.

Someday, will rewrite my letter about the very, very bad date errors in
J J Dickey's Diary. Wrote it once before I knew how to subscribe. So, it
may not have gone anywhere. People should be aware that Peggy Combs who
md Mr. Lewis was born 1840 and not 1820. That is a minor one.

Keep them coming. Hope I did not ruffle any feathers. Hazel

You're confused - but the ancestors were more confused. *grin*... I think
Dr. Ennis wasn't sure himself, or he was misunderstood. I know that my
g-grandma..was the one who gave information about the Combs to my mom.. and
some of the other relatives also. They never did differentiate between the
two Cuthberts. My mom had a horrible time trying to reconcile the dates and
the children. Then I found the book by Dr. J. Combs...showing two
Cuthberts.. and that straightened things right out. I was able to write off
and get various records, etc.

Southwestern Bell Internet was the provider I moved to when AT&T cut out the
unlimited hours service. Now SWB has also cut unlimited service.. I have
moved to Telepath, which is a local service. They may go through SWB at
times, I don't know. But I've gotten stuff so confused. I'm trying to
figure out how to transfer all the information in my SWB Netscape mail
program to Telepath mail program w/o doing it one by one. Once I've got
all that information saved and transferred.. then I'll just cut off SWB and
go strictly with Telepath.
