NOTE: Silas Combs Sr. born October 5, 1916 in Knott County Kentucky, place of residence was Yellow Mountain. He passed on January 7, 1991 in Battle Creek Michigan. He married Drucilla Jene Wallen, the daughter of Earl Wallen and Rhoda Frasure. According to the family history of Anita Mullins the Martha Southwood above was known as Martha Armstrong. Martha's own DC says she was the d/o of Bill Strong and ____ Southwood which may explain the confusion. Maybe she went by Martha Southwood Strong. ALSO - the 1910 Knott Co. census record for Simuel and Martha states a second marriage for both. Perhaps she was first married to a Southwood and the DC is wrong about her mother being a Southwood. In 1920 Simuel and Martha were in Floyd Co., KY
