Note: Is this Samuel Stockwell Combs who married Mary PINKLEY? See Clay Co, IN records: 14 Jan 1847. Clay Co, IN. Born: James Wilson Combs, s/o S. S. and Mary PINKLEY Combs (Combs Researcher Wesley Blank who adds that parents' names were from James Wilson Combs' wedding certificate). Samuel S. Combs and family next found in Clayton Co, IA. Could he be the same Samuel who was in Clay Co., IN (1841 BLM land patent - although a little young perhaps) with Job Combs (1835 BLM land patent) who was same Job Combs that was in Montgomery Co, IN by 1829 per BLM land patent. Job Combs, b abt 1802, Kentucky, married Henrietta WILLIAMS, 1 Jul 1825 in Ripley Co, IN. In 1831, Job Combs and wife Henrietta WILLIAMS of Montgomery Co., IN., give a POA to Jonathan YOKUM to execute a Warranty Deed for their 1/5 share of land in Montgomery Co., KY that had belonged to Nathan WILLIAMS deceased. Witnesses to the POA were James WILSON and Lydia WILSON. Since Samuel S. Combs named sons James Wilson Combs and Job Combs, it seems plausible that Samuel was related to the Job Combs of Montgomery and Clay Co, IN.

DNA tests link Samuel S. Combs genetically to Jonathan Combs of Middlesex Co, NJ.

27 Nov 1881 James Wilson Combs, s/o Samuel Stockwell Combs and Mary PINKLEY marries Alma Virginia REDDEN.
