Allen County Kentucky Ancestry is: Kentucky to Lincoln in 1780 to Logan in 1792 to Warren in 1797 & in 1799 Barren from Warren & Green, and in 1815, Allen County itself. It appears (at this point) that there may have been two distinct Combs Families in Allen Co KY (research in progress) with one being possibly kin to the Robert Job Combs line of NJ Shenandoah Co VA (Based purely on naming patterns at this point -- the truth being that we just don't know yet, although, as is seen below, Combs-Anderson Researcher Birdie Totty McNutt is definitely making big progress at solving this county's mysteries.) Also note: There are "Rough Creeks" all over KY; but not to be confused are those of (1) Hardin/Breckinridge; and (2) Allen Co. Also Note that among the Combs Families in this county are the Combs of Rough Creek and the Combs of Big Barren River. See Also Hammett Families

(Transcribed by Combs researcher Birdie (Totty) McNutt 1998)

Note: James W. Combs was the younger brother of Peter A. Combs & Ann B. Combs was the daughter of Peter ANDERSON, Sr. and mother of Peter Anderson COMBS. A Volantine RACHELS is listed on the 1830 Weakley TN Census. No Combs are listed in that county in 1830, but by 1850, Sarah Combs Hornbeck, widow of Eli and d/o John & Sarah MABRY Combs, is found in the 1850 Weakley Co TN Census (They were in Hickman Co TN in 1830). Sarah Combs Hornbeck's brother, George Mabry Combs m Agnes ORE, and her sister, Elizabeth, m Wilson ORE (See Carlton Combs Letter) Note also that Peter Anderson & Louannie LANCASTER Combs later named a son, Valentine. See Also the Combs of Muhlenberg Co, KY, and Jesse Combs who also removed to Posey Co IN where Valentine RACHELS & Martha Ann Combs m on 29 Dec 1844. (See 10 Aug 1859 below)

Addendum Note: The above mentioned Volantine Rachels is not the same as Valantine RACHELS who married Martha Ann Combs. see 1840 Gibson County, Indiana Wabash Twp pg 40A, where Valentine Rachel is found with George Ward, the likely father of Cynthia “Samanthy” Ann WARD who later is married to Peter Anderson COMBS on June 5, 1855. Also on the same census record is John FIFER, father of Priscilla FIFER who was engaged to Peter A. COMBS on January 31st of 1855 and took out a license to marry, however, she died in February 1855 before the marriage was performed. This would most likely mean Thomas COMBS, the younger had moved to Indian sometime after the 1830 census as that is last record found on him. see above 1838 record of Anna B. Combs


1859 09 Jul (Allen Co KY Marriage Marriage Book 1815-1858) License/Application for Peter A.

Combs & Kesiah LANCISTER. At Mark ANDERSON'S home in the County of Allen in the presence of Mark ANDERSON and Lovy ANDERSON. A. S. WALKER

(Transcribed by Researcher Birdie Totty McNutt)

Note: Although she is referred to as Louanie in both Peter Anderson Combs' obituary above, and as Louannie (Lou Ann) in the 1860 Gibson Co IN census, the following records indicate that her name was actually Keziah Ann. This family used nickname's which causes a headache for those researching. In the Kay County, OK records she is also shown by the marriage register as being mother Susan COMBS.

(Transcribed by Combs-Anderson Researcher Birdie Totty McNutt)

Note: Peter ANDERSON, Sr. sold 174 A. to Ann B. Combs in 1838. In 1859, Valentine and Martha A. Combs Rachels, as an heir of Ann B. Combs and James W. Combs, sold an undivided ½ interest in the 174 acres (87 acres) with brother James W., who held the remaining undivided ½ interest. Peter Anderson Combs appears to have sold (roughly) only what he purchased of the RACHELS. Note: The 174 acres was apparently re-surveyed and divided as Peter A. Combs sold not an undivided interest, but a specific 80 acres. Did he continue to hold 7 acres, or did the resurvey result in a diminishment from 174 to 160 acres? In addition to needing (if extant) wills and/or estate records for both James W. Combs and Ann B. Combs. Question; Ann B. Combs was the dau. of Peter ANDERSON and mother of James W. Combs. Ann B.'s husband, was apparently deceased bef 1838 (when she purch. land from ANDERSON). Ann B. herself died on Dec. 14,1857 in Posey Co., IN, and is buried with her father Peter Anderson, Sr in the Mount Pleasant Cemetery. Peter Anderson & Keziah Ann "Louannie" LANCASTER Combs are next found on the 1860 Gibson Co IN census. (See Also the James W. Combs Letter)

Note:: This Mary Combs was Mary Steenbergen Combs married to my great grandfather Samuel Combs who was the son of Thomas Combs of Allen Co., KY. Mary died about 4 months after the birth of her last child James Henry Combs. Samuel, Mary and family departed for Missouri about 1865 (I found the church records where she received her letter of dismissal in 1865 so am assuming they left shortly after for Missouri). They appeared in the 1870 Camden Co., MO census. My grandmother was born in Missouri as was some of her brothers/sisters. According to the schedule they returned to Allen Co., KY approximately 1874 (if they had been in Allen Co., KY for 5 years).

Note: James and Mazie now under nicknames Jim and Dolly with only one child living at home. Son Vesper is found in new household with wife Hazel Unknown. Need her maiden name. James and Mazie's daughter Jessie Mae COMBS is now listed with her husband Buzz L. STINSON. If Earl C. is the son of Jessie Mae then she would have married at age 12-13, but this is unlikely since she was still in HH of her father in the 1920 census. Earl C. and Neva Pearl STINSON may (highly likely) be from a earlier marriage of Buzz L. Stinson. Gilkie Beatrice age 16 is missing from census. Could she have married? If so we need the marriage information for her.
