CRITTENDEN COUNTY, AR Biography of Richard Stephen Combs (deceased), who was an enterprising farmer of Tyronza Township, was born in Carroll County, Va., October 25, 1853, and died October 15, 1889. His parents were both Virginians by birth and came to this county in 1876, locating where the widow of the subject of this sketch now lives. R. S. Combs was married October 23, 1883, to Mrs. Julia F. CLOAR, who was born in this county October 11, 1856, the widow of Y. Y. CLOAR and daughter of Joseph A. and Julia (RICHARDS) Lyles. Mr. LYLES was born in Obion County, Tenn., and immigrated to Crittenden County, Ark., at an early day. He and his wife both died in this county, the former in 1862 and Mrs. LYLES in 1883. Mrs. Combs lives on the farm that she inherited from her father. It consists of 225 acres, with 125 in cultivation, upon which is a fine young orchard and good buildings. A part of her land is located on the Tryonza River. Mrs. Combs is the mother of one child, Mary Lyles Combs. She is an estimable lady, and is respected by all who know her. She is a sister of Albert H. CAMPBELL, a sketch of whom appears on a previous page. (Extracted by Combs Researcher Debi Houser from Goodspeeds' History of Eastern Arkansas, Biographical and Historical Memoirs)

Notes: Although neither Richard Stephen Combs, nor his parents have been identified yet, he may have been the Richard and Stephen Combs in the confusing dual 1870 Grayson Co, VA Census households of Nancy Combs, d/o Joseph and Caroline WILLS Combs of Carroll Co, VA.

No BLM Records found for Combs in this county.
