Introduction

The earliest Combs &c. Families to come to what is now Madison County, Arkansas, but was earlier Washington and Izzard Cos, AR, from the same location: Warren Co, TN, but settled in two opposite sections of the county: (1) Jeremiah & Charity RHODES Combs (new report) and their children settled in the early 1830s in Kings River Twp on land that was originally Izzard, then Carroll Counties prior to becoming part of Madison County shortly before 1840. (2) Martin & Sarah COMBS Johnson, Sr.'s children began arriving before 1830 from Warren Co, TN, and settled primarily in Richland Twp, but also in Prairie Twp, both on the west side of the county. (3) At least one child of Simon & Martha MURRILL Combs, Mahala COMBS, wife of Barnett OWEN, also came to Madison County; (4) "it is said" that Martin JOHNSON'S brother, William JOHNSON married a Tisha COMBS; and (5) it is likely that John & Mahala COMBS (unidentified, but found near Jeremiah COMBS in Kingston Twp. in 1840 and near his daughter, Sarah COMBS Lane in Prairie Twp. in 1850) also came from Warren.

During the 1850s yet more Combs arrived - cousins of the earlier Combs, although many of the various specific relationships are still being sorted out. Simon & Jeremiah COMBS were sons of Mason & Dorothy COMBS (Jr.?) of Hawkins Co, TN who was probably the son of Mason & Sarah COMBS, Sr. of Stafford & Frederick Cos, VA & Surry Co, NC. Sarah COMBS Johnson was somehow kin to them, and may even have been their sister; likewise, Tisha COMBS(?) Johnson. Other COMBS continued to arrive in Madison Co, AR, many from Perry Co KY (See our New Two Hiram and Mary COMBS of Perry Co KY and Madison Co AR); but more continue to dangle, and the following is part of our continuing effort to both untangle and undangle them all.


Chronology of Madison Co, AR Records


1832 (then Izard Co, AR) "The first Free Will Baptist Church west of the Mississippi River was constituted in 1832 by Samuel WHITELEY, at the house of David PICKETT, on War Eagle, with seven members: Ann and Sallie WHITELEY, Polly PICKETT, Malinda COMBS, John CLARKE, Ann PERROTT, and one other whose name has not been ascertaned. This is now extinct."

(Goodspeeds' History of Northwest Arkansas, Madison County)

Notes: Malinda, b ca 1811, KY, was the wife of John COMBS, b ca 1811, TN, listed on 1840 and 1850 Madison Co, AR Census, but gone by 1860. In 1840, John COMBS is listed on the Madison Co, AR census adjacent to in Kings River Township adjacent to John D. COMBS (son of Jeremiah and Charity RHODES Combs, formerly of Hawkins and Warren Cos TN) and a John CLARK. By 1850, however, John and Malinda COMBS (Madison Co, AR HH#42), William and Sarah COMBS Lane (daughter of Jeremiah & Charity RHODES Combs), and John CLARK are all listed across the county in Prairie Township near William JOHNSON and Lishley (a.k.a. Tisha) Combs Johnson, and William Murray and Sophronia BELL Drake (the former brother to Martin & Sarah COMBS Johnson, Sr., all also formerly of Hawkins and Warren Cos, TN). This move from Kings River twp (by John COMBS and Sarah COMBS Lane) to the Prairie Twp neighborhood of the COMBS-JOHNSON Families constitutes the primary evidence we've uncovered this far to indicate that there was association between the two families after they left Warren Co, TN. In 1860, John & Malinda and all their children are gone from Madison Co, AR - and remain unfound to date.

Also Note: Contrary to statements made in The Combes Genealogy…, this John COMBS is not the John COMBS of 1858 Madison Co, AR who appears in Perry Co, KY records, and is sometimes termed John Combs-COUCH (see below).

Hilburn Twp.

P. 28, L. 23: Jesse D. COMBS 002001-010001-0

Notes: Jesse D. COMBS of Hilburn Twp. (this name has also been transcribed as Jessie D. COMBS), b 1790-1800, has not yet been identified, and has not yet been located on the 1850 Census. No Combs were in Hillburn in 1850, but in the early 1850s, Polly COMBS Combs, widow of Elijah COMBS, Jr. and d/o Jeremiah "Long" COMBS, came to Hilburn from Perry Co, KY. Was Jesse D. also from Perry? Did Jesse D. own land in Madison? Was his household near to Polly COMBS Combs?

4/21/1858-4/21/1858 (Perry Co, KY DBC:476) John COMBS of Madison Co., AR sold to Wm L. COMBS of Perry Co, KY, for $125, all his interest in the estate of Biram COMBS decd. His interest is in land on Carrs Fk that descended to his sister. In DBC:475, John defines his sister as Dicy COMBS, decd.

(Combs Researcher Sue Elfving)

Notes: This is the John COMBS who is sometimes termed John COMBS-COUCH, s/o Biram COMBS, Jr., in The Combes Genealogy…, which has mistakenly identified him as the John COMBS of the 1850 Prairie Twp., Madison Co, AR Census. Instead, he is listed in the 1850 Perry Co, KY census HH of Polly COMBS (widow of Elijah COMBS, Jr. and d/o Jeremiah "Long" COMBS). By 1855, he, Polly and some of her children had come to Madison Co, AR (See Two Hiram and Mary Combs of Perry Co, KY and Madison Co, AR), and in 1860, John is listed in Hilburn Twp. of Madison Co, AR with Polly COMBS Combs in his household. In 1850, his sister, Dicey COMBS, then age 11, was listed in the Perry Co, KY household of Benjamin and Sarah COMBS Davidson (the latter d/o Elijah and Polly COMBS Combs, Jr.) immediately following Polly COMBS Combs and this John COMBS.

Note: Hiram Combs, son of Clinton Combs (s/o of Mason "8" Combs) and Matilda Combs, (d/o of George “8” Combs). He appears to have remarried after he removed to Arkansas. He is found in the 1870 Perry Co., Ky. census.

Martha appears to be the same as Martha CAMP, age 23 (b. MS), with husband William B. Camp (b. AL) in 1870 in Calhoun Co., MS. This matches the 1880 census wherein Willie M. and Ella J. CAMP shows their father as being born in AL. Martha J. states she was born in MS. In 1870, they were listed as having been married less than 1 year having married in August which would mean they married in Aug. 1869 since the Calhoun Co., MS, 1870 census was taken in July 1870. See Logan Co, AR for this family in 1900 Census.
