(1) Combs Bible Record. Re-typed by Combs Researcher Sherry SummersMarine from an earlier transcription by Dorotha Knox of Texas, 1997. Sherry adds: It is not known either who has the actual Bible, nor who originally transcribed it. Certain parts were difficult to decipher due to notes made on the transcription (as noted). The only change made was to capitalize surnames. All added notes and/or annotations are [bracketed]. See also the second bible record which follows.

(2) Bible Record. Extracted by Combs Researcher Sherry Summers Combs from "Sumner County, TN Bible Records" by Zoie Lynne Bowen, June 1997,Family History Call no. 976.847 V2B, pg 3, Bible belonging to Mrs. SusieG. Gambill, 1853, North Water Street, Gallatin, TN

SSM Notes: Although David Combs' birth month in the following record is three months off compared to the above, the birth date of hisson, William, is the same in both Bible records. According to the above Bible record, David was married to Rachel whereas the following shows that he married Christanna HASSELL - except that the dates are in conflict (Christanna is listed as having been born and married in the same year,1809). If it is the marriage year which is correct, then I assume Davidwas married at least two times as son William was born 27 Jun 1806 and David married Christanna 19 Sep 1809. Although the identities of all others listed here have not been determined yet, see also Sumner Co., TN re HASSELL Families, including the HASSELL cemetery where an unidentified Catherine Combs is buried. Who was Sally Combs, born 19 Sep 1807? Could she have been the sister of William W.? Could she have been the Sally who married in 18
