Goals

  • See if there are any male descendants of John L. COMBS presumed brother Benjamin COMBS other unknown branches who may be able to provide a genetic profile for pursuing this lineage further.
  • Note: Well documented. No hint of John L. Combs' parentage or what the "L" stands for. He appears out of thin air in Barren Co, KY in 1817 on the tax list. Since the Reads lived in Stafford, were members of the Chopawansic Baptist Church, and lived near the John and Sarah Luttrell Combs family, I have wondered if John L. Combs was not a son of their son Nimrod Combs, who apparently had some children but are not documented, or the son of their bastard son John. John's status as a fugitive could be pursued further in KY Court records.

There are other Berryman Combs' in Indiana, but they lived and owned land in Greene Co. and others, not Spencer Co. I think they are related to Harrison Combs, who emigrated from KY.

Goals

  • By establishing and comparing "genetic profiles" determine if Jeremiah "Long Jerry" COMBS shares a common ancestry with Mason COMBS Sr. of Stafford Co, Va
  • Determine if Jeremiah also shares a common ancestry with Mason COMBS (1795-1853/4), and Shadrach COMBS Sr, or with the 8 brothers, or with another unplaced Perry Co. Jeremiah COMBS.
  • Note: Lineage through #7 Jeremiah "Long Jerry" thoroughly documented by records. Almost all records available on Combs website and part of various family reports. John, the reputed father of Jeremiah "Long Jerry" COMBS, as presented by Dr. Josiah COMBS, is not supported by any records. All available documents have been researched, and none of these yield any definiable clues to the father of Jeremiah "Long Jerry" Sr. Some oldtimer interviewees believed he was a 9th brother. His children carry many of the names found in the children of John COMBS Sr. and Nancy Harding. If he is a "9th" brother, then maybe the list of the 8 brothers is incorrect. Or, if his father was a different John, then we have a third old John COMBS not yet understood.

KY and the surrounding area (Nelson or Hardin Co.) that could also be a part of my branch. Which one of them is where I need more info. I'm wondering if this William descends from the Combs in VA, MD, or NC/TN and back to England, perhaps? Or, maybe my branch leads in a completely different direction-I would love to know!
  • Note: Most of this branch has been documented thoroughly from generation 1-6. More resources could still be searched for generation 7 and beyond. Generation 1-5 is documented with sources such as bible pedigree charts, census indexes, birth, marriage and death records, and of course, personal knowledge.

This “lineage” can now be connected through DNA results, although exact lineage still not established, to Archdale COMBE of VA and into England via Berks, London and allied families, particularly the Lovetts of Bucks.

There is a Taulbee but im not sure if its the right one, he is on the Whitesburg census, much younger. The Death cert for him says he wasnt born till 1890 or so, so im not sure I have the right one. Jennie is said to be Native American, her son Lucian's wife Omia told me she was “Full blooded Osage” I doubt this, i think half maybe, but certianly was some Indian.
