Henry County was organized from Shelby County in 1799. In 1824, Oldham was established from Henry, Shelby and Jefferson. In 1837, Trimble was established from Gallatin, Henry and Oldham.  In 1838, Carrollwas established from Henry, Gallatin and Trimble.
Most, if not all, of the early Combs Families of this county appear to have been descendants of Samuel & Mary WILKES Combs of Loudoun Co., VA and Nelson Co., KY Much of what is known of the Henry Co., KY COMBS &c. Families was gained from either the William F. Coombs Manuscript or the Kentucky family history book, Kentucky: A History of the State," Battle, Perrin, & Kniffin, 6th edition, 1887. Fortunately numerous early Marriage Records are also extant.
