Notes: In 1830 Llewellyn Combs was in Meade Co., KY. He removed to Adams Co., IL, and died there by 1840 of yellow fever. Maria (OVERTON) COMBS then moved to Louisville, Ohio Co., KY by 1850 operating a boarding house. The ancestry of Llewellyn W. Combs is not yet known, but it seems quite possible that he may be related to the Llewellyn family. See also See Susan (Combs) Harner and Jefferson Co, KY.
