(Transcribed by Combs Researcher Debi Houser)

Cicero Township

pg 240

58/58 John Combs 56 M farmer $500 NC cannot read or write
Elizabeth 55 F NC cannot read or write
Lavisa 18 F NC
John 12 M IN attended school within the year 60/60 William Combs 29 M farmer $3-0 NC
Margaret 21 F IN
Theodore 4 M IN
Samuel 2 M IN

Notes: Might this be William and Margaret LEGG Combs who m 3/2/1845, Rush Co, IN? (No Combs in Rush Census, Land or Marriage pre-1851). If so, these Combs may have had ties to Henry Co, IN. John appears to have been in Indiana by 1838, but too many John Combs in 1840 census index to tell which he might have been without transcriptions.
