18 Sep 1895 Newspaper: The climax., September 18, 1895, Image 2 (Richmond, Madison County, KY.) SLICK CITIZENS HAVING A ROUGH TIME.

A Winchester telegram says:

United States Marshal Mitchell Calmes has arrived here from Knott county with three important prisoners, Ben Martin, Thomas Combs and Simeon Combs, charged with forgery. Ben and Tom are each about 20 years of age, while Simeon is only 17. It appears that Martin was the leader, and that the trio have for some time been sending out bogus checks. The banks here have a number of customers scattered over Eastern Ken- tucky, among those of the Winchester bank being W. O. Davis, a substantial citizen of Hazard, Perry county. ............(continued)


18 Oct 1895 Mt. Echo 1895 (Laurel Co., Ky Newspaper) "A bloody battle in Knott county at a political meeting is reported to have occurred a few days ago, in which two Democrats, Tom HOWARD and Henry PATTON, and one Republican Josiah Combs are said to have been killed." (Excerpted by Combs Researcher Debi Houser)

Notes: This is apparently in reference to the killing of Judge Josiah Henry Combs, the son of Jesse and Polly BOLLING Combs, and husband of Polly Ann MATTINGLY, the daughter of Jesse and Nancy BOLLING Combs of Perry Co., KY.

SE Note: This Fielding may be the same as Fielden Charles Combs, probable son of Jackson Combs and Mary Ann YOUNG. Fielding was previously married to Sylvania ENGLE by whom he had 5 known children. Sylvania had apparently remarried by about 1899 to Wilburn THACKER (see 1900 Knott Co. census record). Fieldin(g) was living next door to Elijah FULLER in Mingo Co., WVA in 1900, and the 3 Oct. 1950 Bath Co., Va., DC for Fielden's last wife (2nd or 3rd), Elizabeth Lucas Combs, states her mother was one Mary FULLER and that she, Elizabeth, was born in Sassafras, Knott Co. Fielding Charles Combs d. 4 Nov. 1939 in Bath Co., Va. The only Darcus FULLER in the 1880 census was the 2 year old d/o of Archable and Dicy FULLER.

(Transcribed by Sue Elfving from Knott Co., Ky. Court Records 1897-1904, Court Order Book 4, original on FHC Microfilm #0802210)

SE Note: I do not know which John W. Combs is referenced in this record. Clementine Cody, the wife of one John W. Combs (father of Dr. Josiah Combs), had a younger half-sister Millie Kinser, daughter of Matilda SMITH Cody Kinser and her second husband Emery KINSER. According to Dr. Combs in his The Combs Genealogy, this Millie married Samuel MAGGARD while my notes from Smith research state she married Hiram Maggard. I missed that discrepancy between Josiah's book and my Smith research notes. Since the 1898 court record referred to Millie as a Kinser, she likelymarried a short time afterwards and had another child, namely Ishmael T., aged 3 months. Daughter Bessie was about age 3 in 1898.I did not see a "Millie Kinser" in our 1900 Knott Co. census records or a Bessie Kinser. Edtor's Note: See the Combs archives for discussion of Bessie Kinser being the Dora in John's HH in the 1900 census.

LG Notes: William THACKER married Sylvania ENGLE who was 1st married to Fielden COMBS, the son of Jackson COMBS & Mary A. YOUNG.

SE Notes: The Perry Co. Marriage Bond for Fielden Combs and Sylvana ENGLE was dated 22 Sept 1885 ((PC-MBF). Although no divorce record for Fielden and Sylvania has been located, they apparently divorced and she remarried William THACKER around 1899. William aka Wilburn states in 1900 that he had been married 1 year. Sylva states she has been married twice and has had 7 children with 6 living. Only 2 are shown on this census. Although William Combs is the only stepchild living with Sylva, see the 1910 census for Wilburn and Sylvania THACKER showing four Combs stepchildren living with them: Elijah, William, Winnie, and Angeline. According to researchers, there is also a son named Jerry Combs. He could be the Jeremiah Combs, age 9, living with Benjamin ENGLE in the 1900 Perry Co., Ky. census where he is styled as a nephew. Sylvania's ex-husband Fielden Combs is found on the 1900 Mingo Co., WV census and the 1930 Bath Co., Va census. See these counties for more information about Fielden C. Combs, believed to be the son of Jackson Combs and Mary Anne YOUNG. According to researcher Jenny Combs, the marriage certificate for Elijah Combs names his parents as Fielden and Sylvania Combs.

The murder took place on a highway near Whitesburg according to a newspaper account found in the March 30, 1939 edition of the Mountain Eagle.

SE NOTES: Lorenzo Down SMITH, s/o of Richard SMITH & Elitia Combs. See new Knott Co. KVS Death Record for L D Smith that states his parents were Richard and Mahalie Smith.

SE Notes: Possibly Jane Combs FULLER, d/o of Jeremiah "Long Jerry" Combs and widow of Leviticus FULLER. This family previously found in the 1880 Breathitt Co., Ky. census. According to The Combes Genealogy, Jane remarried Wilburn PATTON. Daughter Florence seems to have been missed in the 1880 census. Jenny may have died before the 1910 census since Wilburn, styled as father, is living with son Henry in the 1910 Knott Co. census (not abstracted). Henry is living next door to his likely brother Wesley.

Louise Gaskill Note: William Barlow STACY married Sarah "Sally" RITCHIE, daughter of (E)squire Ritchy and Rachel Combs. Sarah married 1st, 1876, Marchant CAMPBELL, apparently they divorced after a very short time and had no children. Editor's Note: William Stacy married Sarah Richy 12 Jan 1876 in probably Breathitt Co., KY. The statement that Sarah married 1st, 1876, Marchant CAMPBELL, has no documentation available here and the marriage licence of William Stacy and Sarah states that it was a first marriage for both.... further study needed before this last statement can be prooved. See also 25 Sep 1918 Death Certificate of daughter Syntha Clemons in Breathitt Co., KY.
