William R. & Sarah WICKLIFFE Combs of Stafford Co., VA (son of Ennis & Margaret ROUSSEAU Combs)

Combs Family Bible Record 1784-1946, Accession #23339, originally transcribed by Combs-Hayes Researcher Nancy Tyrrell Theodore from “The Library of Virginia, Digital Collections, Archives & Manuscripts”, “re-transcribed” 01 Apr 1998 by Combs Researcher Anne Wickliffe B. Musser, descendant of V. E. (Virginia Elizabeth) Combs, b 1834; and “re-re-transcribed” Feb 1999 by Combs Researcher Carole Hammet.

Note: This record is very difficult reading,and Anne's transcription was partially enabled by her knowledge and possession of other records confirmingf acts herein, and Carole's with the assistance of yet more records (See Fauquier & Stafford Cos VA). Nevertheless, some portions of this bible record remain illegible. If anyone has further knowledge of the original entries, input would be appreciated.
