Note: The descendants of John and Lydia _____ Combs of Montgomery Co, KY, later resided in the counties of Bath, Nicholas and Bourbon, Kentucky; Putnam and Boone Counties, Indiana; and Clay, Buchanan, Ralls, Ray, Jackson and Andrew Cos, Missouri.


Editors Note: Although not documented (research-in-progress), it is possible that John and Thomas Combs of Montgomery Co, Kentucky may have been the sons of a Daniel Combs who was recorded on the tax rolls of Montgomery County as early as 1797 and earlier in it's parent county of Clark Co KY in 1795 (Early KY Tax Records from the Register of the KY Historical Society). John Combs first appears in records of Montgomery KY in 1809 purchasing land from estate of Daniel. He appears not to have been on the 1810 Montgomery KY Census, however, with the next record found for him not being until (assuming same John) 1818 in a transaction with Levi LUCKETT (see also Combs-Luckett of Fauquier and Stafford Cos VA).

    (Bourbon County, KY) “JOHN V. MOORE, farmer and trader; P. O. North Middletown; was born on Plum Lick, near the Bourbon and Montgomery line, on the 14th of February, 1922 [sic]. His grandfather was a native of Ireland, and emigrated to the United States about the year 1770 and settled in Virginia, where he remained about eighteen years. He next came to Kentucky and settled near North Middletown, in Bourbon County, where he spent the greater portion of his after life. He was a prominent member of the Masonic Order in his day, and organized the first Masonic Lodge at the above town. He raised three sons and two daughters and died at the age of eighty-four years. His second son, John MOORE, was married about 1808 to Mrs. Mollie (RACE) Fulton. The result of this union was seven children--two sons and five daughters. John MOORE was a volunteer in the war of 1812, in Capt. Combs' Company, Col. Dick JOHNSON'S regiment. Participated in the memorable battle of the Thames. Saw and examined the body of Tecumseh after he was killed. Immediately after the war he returned to his Kentucky home, where he passed the remainder of his life with his family. He was a man, being born in an honest period of our country's history, was scrupulously exact in all his dealings and assiduous in the discharge of every duty devolving upon him. He attached himself to the Christian Church when about the age of about forty-five years, under the preaching of John T. JOHNSON. He was a man of firm convictions, an avowed Democrat through life, and died at the age of eighty-four. His second son, John V., who is the subject of this sketch, was married January 2, 1844, to Phebe A. Combs, by whom he raised three sons: Richard F., who was killed in the Morgan charge at Lebanon, Ky., on the 5th of August, 1863; Fulton R., who died at Camden, Mississippi, in 1870, and Kelly P., who married Mattie E., daughter of Elder John B. McGINN, on December 22d, 1880, and who still resides with his father at the homestead. Mr. MOORE and family are all members of the Christian Church and are Democrats in politics.”
