    1807 Clark Co., KY Deed Index Book 6:196 From HOLDER, John R. E. To COMBS, Samuel R. &c. (Wives names: 1. Theodocia [HOLDER] & 2. Margaret THOMSON) by Sheriff

    Notes: Samuel Richardson, son of Benjamin & Sarah RICHARDSON Combs, married (1) 9 Oct 1797 (date per his granddaughter, Mary Salisbury COMBS York, marriage record not found), Theodosia HOLDER; and (2) 30 Apr 1826, Clark Co., KY, Margaret THOMPSON. For the above record to include both wives' names apparently indicates later papers included with record. From this time on, Samuel Richardson is involved in numerous deed transactions, most apparently with his 1st wife's family, and those have not, for the most part, been included here (See Clark Co., KY Deed Index) unless of possible genealogical value.

    Notes: The published pension abstraction from file of John H. Combs, War of 1812 soldier, erroneously refers to him as John M. COMBS:

    "COMBS, John M. & Marinda VIVION married 2 Jan 1819 Clark Co., KY soldier died spring of 1848 or 49 in Adams Co., IL, widow died 19 Dec 1885 in Georgetown, Scott Co., KY; soldier served in S. R. [Samuel R.] COMBS' KY Mil, lived Scott Co., KY." (WC-8114, , Index to War of 1812 Pensions Files, Vol 1, Virgil D. White)

    According to at least three other sources, including the Edna F. Hightower Collection; "The Vivion Family" article published in theVirginia Magazine of History & Genealogy (vol. & issue to be added); andThe Combes Genealogy, Marinda VIVION married John H. COMBS, not John M. According to The Combes Genealogy (and see 1842 records), this John H. COMBS was the son of Joseph and Susannah CLARK Combs. See also 1855 Clark Co., KY records.
