Lincoln Co., KY is one of Kentucky's three "charter counties," created in 1780 from Kentucky Co.,VA (See Frontier Combs of KY).Mercer and Madison Counties were established from Lincoln in 1786; Logan in 1792; Green in 1793 from Lincoln and Nelson; Garrard in 1797 from Lincoln, Madison and Mercer;Pulaski in 1799 from Lincoln and Green; Knox in 1800; Casey in 1807; Rockcastle in 1810 from Lincoln, Pulaski, Madison and Knox; and Boyle in 1842 from Lincoln and Mercer.

There were two, apparently distinct, Combs Families in early Lincoln Co, KY. They were:

(1) Stephen & Barbara ALLEN Combs of Loudoun Co., VA, the first Combs found in the records of Lincoln County, although It is also reported that William Combs of Charles Co., MD and Nelson Co., KY was a member of the Lincoln Co., KY Militia in 1782 (Is this list extant?) Stephen first appeared in 1791. No other Combs were in Lincoln Co. at the time. Stephen is believed to be the son of Joseph and Elisabeth HARRISON Combs and he is shown with land on Simpson’s Creek that is entered in the name of Joseph Combs. In 1799, Stephen shows an extra male tithe age 16-21 and a John appears in the same tax district in 1800 giving credence to Jacob Harlan’s statement that Stephen had a son named John. Using the tax lists as a guide, this John would have been born 1778/9. In 1805, a William Combs appears in same district with Stephen. He would be the William who married Nancy Davis in Lincoln Co. on 23 Dec. 1805. The appearance of William in the same district with Stephen in 1805 who no longer is carrying extra male tithes is also supportive of Harlan’s claim that Stephen had a son named William. This William was born 1783/4 as Stephen was still showing an extra tithe age 16-21 in 1800. Stephen came to Lincoln Co., KY via North Carolina according to Alpheus H. Harlan's The Harlan Family, but his source remains unknown (1850 or 1880 census ecords?). Stephen is on the 1810 Lincoln Co., KY census, and appears to have been the same who appears in the records of Franklin Co., KY in 1811 although a Stephen continues to be listed in the Lincoln Co. tax lists through 1814..

(2) Two sons of John & Nancy HARDING Combs, Sr. of Frederick Co., VA; Surry Co., NC; and Floyd Co., KY (parents of "the eight" early brothers to East KY):

.....(a) Revolutionary War Pensioner William Combs of Frederick & Shenandoah Cos, VA; Lincoln, Casey?, Clay?, Bath, Fleming &Fayette Counties, KY.

.....(b) Revolutionary War Pensioner John Combs of Frederick & Shenandoah Cos, VA; and Sullivan Co, TN;** and Lincoln, Clay,

Tax records and the marriage records of several of their daughters confirm these two sons of John and Nancy HARDING Combs, both documented soldiers of the Revolutionary War, were in Lincoln Co., Ky.

William Combs** of White Oak, sometimes shown as living on Hanging Fork or Rolling Fork, first appeared in the Lincoln Co., Ky. tax list in 1793.

William Combs, brother to RW John “8” Combs, last appeared in the 1792 Shenandoah Co., Va. , tax list. William Combs of Lincoln is first shown with 500a in 1794, as living on White Branch with 500a in 1795, and in 1797 he is recorded with a land grant for 500a on White Oak. He is last shown on the Lincoln Co. tax list in the year 1806. He appears, per land descriptions, to be the William Combs in 1808 in the Casey Co., Ky., tax list. In 1815, William Combs and wife Elizabeth, styled as being of Clay Co., Ky., sell land to George Combs of Casey Co. Afterwards, we sort of lose track of William, but his Revolutionary War Pension records show he lived in Bath and Fleming Counties and that he died in Fayette Co., Ky.

Note: William Combs may have also been in Sullivan and/or Hawkins Co, TN; and Russell Co, VA, as may have their father, who is also known as John Combs, "father of the eight," and who may have also been in Montgomery Co, VA. (See also Early Combs of East KY) John Combs , aka RW John "8" Combs or Soldier John Combs, one of the eight brothers, first appeared in the Lincoln Co., Ky. tax list in the year 1796 and in the same tax district as William of White Oak. This John’s last year on the tax list was 1809. No list exists for 1810 and he is not on the 1811 list. He likely moved to Clay Co. around this time and could be one of the John Combs in the subsequent Clay Co., Ky. tax lists.

Note: Except where otherwise noted, all early marriages in this county are those of the children of one of the above three men. SE NOTE: Lincoln County Kentucky Tax Entries For COMBS & Associated Families below were abstracted by Philo Lund, and submitted by Sue Elfving from FHC Microfilm # 0008114 for Lincoln Co., Ky. Tax Lists 1787-88, 1790-97, 1799-1805 and FHC Microfilm # 0008115 for Lincoln Co., Ky. Tax Lists 1806-1825 unless otherwise noted.

General Comments about tax records: Some years were very difficult to read. We are sure there are errors and omissions despite proofing. There were multiple lists each year and the number of each year’s list did not necessarily correspond to the same number for the next year. For example, list #1 would not have the same people from year to year. The only way to determine whether one was working with the same area from year to year was to compare the people on the list to those of the prior year. By doing this comparison, one is able to determine which John and William Combs went together as there were two groups of Combs in Lincoln Co. tax lists and both had a John and a William.

(Originally published as Filson Club Publications, Number 33, KY), p. 163, hereinafter KLG)

    According to The Combes Genealogy, this land was later in Boyle Co., KY (not yet researched). Among others whose land was surveyed on White Oak Cr. of Lincoln County, was Humphrey MARSHALL whose two tracts of 640 & 360 A respectively were surveyed only one day after that of Wm. Combs (Book 12:515& 13:453, KLG, p. 206)

    SE Note: John Christian was still listed with land on White Oak. I question the data for John COMBS since it shows him with the extra male. This entry needs checking again. However, a John Combs Jnr. does show up on the Lincoln Co., tax list the following year.
    23 Dec 1805 (Lincoln Co., KY MarriageBonds/Consents) Consent of Thomas DAVIS and Elizabeth DAVIS for their daughter Nancy DAVIS to marry William Combs. December 23,1805. Witnessed by Archeble DAVIS and Nathan DAVIS. (Extracted by Combs Researcher Rhoda Fone from Lincoln County Kentucky Records, Volume I, by Michael L.Cook, C.G.)

    Notes: Who was this? William Combs, born before 1784 (no consent, thus at least 21 years of age?) Given the young age of the bride, he would seem likely to be a son of one of the elder Combs, possibly Stephen given that a Joseph DAVIESS [sic] witnessed the 1800 marriage of his daughter, Nancy? Both Harlan and Josiah H. Combs'Combs Genealogy list a son, William, for Stephen and Barbara Combs Allen, but with no additional information. However, it would seem just as possible that he was a son of either the elder William or John? Is this the William Combs of the 1810 Lincoln Co., KY census? And/or could the above Nancy DAVIS Combs have been the same "stray" Nancy Combs found in the records of Floyd Co., KY marrying a James BATES (she was an adult, perhaps a widow?)?

A John Combs Jun. pops up in 1806 and the older John no longer has an extra tithe. Then a John Combs appears in the 1808 Casey Co., Ky. tax list with 174a on Knob Lick entered in the name of E. Russell who is still in Lincoln Co. in 1808 showing no land. John Jun. is back in 1809 in Lincoln Co. as John Combs Jun. with the 174a on Knob Lick. In 1809, both John Sr. and John Jr. are listed. On 2 Dec. 1807, Sanders RUSSELL and Edward Russell witnessed the consent of John Combs for the marriage of his daughter Nancy to Joseph GOODE. Sanders RUSSELL was the surety for this marriage. On 10 May 1809 in Lincoln Co., Ky., Sanders RUSSELL married Polly, daughter of John Combs. Then, on 2 Nov. 1810, James Hundley married Sally Combs, daughter of John Combs who gave his consent. Her brother Benjamin Combs was the surety for this marriage.

    13 Feb 1809 (Lincoln Co., KY Marriage Bonds/Consents) Bond of John WILSON to marry Jane Combs , with John Combs as surety, February 13, 1809. Consent of Stephen Combs and Barbary Combs for their daughter, same date, witnessed by John Combsand Benjamin WARREN. (Extracted by Combs Researcher Rhoda Fone from Lincoln County Kentucky Records, Volume I, by Michael L. Cook, C.G.)

    Notes: The inclusion of Stephen's wife, Barbara ALLEN, in this record documents that Stephen and Barbara ALLEN Combs of Loudoun Co VA were the same as of Lincoln Co., KY. According to both Harlan andCombs, one of Stephen Combs' children was named Jane and "married a WILCHER." A marriage CD also lists this surname as WILCHER (source not known). The 1810 Lincoln Co., KY census includes John WILSHIR/WELSHER (transcribed both ways), and no John WILSON (which is meaningless since this name is too common to trace to other counties without more information). Also note that we have not identified this John Combs (there were two in Lincoln Co., KY by 1810). He would appear likely to have been the same who was on the same tax list as Stephen in 1800, but could he have been RW John Combs? Also Note the William WARREN in the1798 marriage of William Combs' daughter. Were the WARRENS kin to each other? If so, is this an indication of a relationship between the Shenandoah and Loudoun Co VA Combs? What is the significance, if any, of the fact that one John Combs of Lincoln Co., KY had a daughter named Barbara?
    10 May 1809 (Lincoln Co., KY MarriageBonds/Consents) Bond of Sanders RUSSELL to marry Polly Combs, with Joseph GOOD as surety, May 10, 1809. Consent of John Combs for his daughter, May 10, 1809, witnessed by William MORRISON and Joseph GOOD. (Extracted by Combs Researcher Rhoda Fone from Lincoln County Kentucky Records, Volume I, by Michael L. Cook, C.G.)

    Notes: Sanders RUSSELL was a witness at 1807 Lincoln Co., KY marriage of Joseph GOODE & Nancy Combs, daughter of RW John Combs (1761), thus even though not named by Margaret Combs Lewis in her Dickey Diary Interview, it appears that Polly is another daughter of RW John Combs. Also note the presence of William MORRISON and see George MORRISON of Sullivan Co TN. Were these two MORRISONS kin to each other?

    DH Notes: None of the above five Combs were listed adjacent to each other-- possibly indicating also that none lived adjacent (or even near to) each other. William Combs' name (immediately between a Moses COLLIER and a Joseph CAMMELL [CAMPBELL?]) appeared 20 names before that of Richard COMES (listed immediately between a John CLOYD and a William CRAIG); and Richard's name appeared 33 names before that of the first John Combs (listed between Lewis COOCK [COOK? COCK?] and Caleb COOPER), and the first John's name was listed 8 names before that of the second John Combs (immediately between Conrad CARPENTER and CLAMPETT), and the 2nd John's name appeared 15 names before that of Stephen Combs (the last name beginning with "C" and immediately following that of a Rebecca CROW).

    By 1810, some of the Combs had moved on; i.e., (1) it "appears" that RW William "8" Combs; Benjamin STACEY (married Barbara Combs, daughter of John) and Joseph GOODE (married Nancy Combs, daughter of John), are the same found on the 1810 Casey Co., KY Census (Casey from Lincoln in 1806-7); and (2) Aaron and Jacob HARLAN, and James REED (married Stephen Combs' daughters) are found in Barren Co., KY in 1810.

    02 Nov 1810 (Lincoln Co., KY Marriage Bonds/Consents) Bond of James HUNDLEY to marry Sally Combs, with BenjaminCombs as surety, November 2, 1810. Consent of John Combs for his daughter, November 1, 1810, witnessed by Benjamin Combs. (Extracted by Combs Researcher Rhoda Fone from Lincoln County Kentucky Records, Volume I , by Michael L. Cook, C.G.)

    Notes: According to both the Dickey Diary Interview of his granddaughter, Margaret Combs Lewis, and the pension application of Revolutionary War Soldier John Combs (1761), the above Sally Combs Hundley was his daughter. She later married Claiborne Combs, son of George "8" & Lydia HARRELL Combs. (See Owsley Co., KY) The above Benjamin Combs was probably Sally's brother, married 1816 in Clay Co., KY, Jane BROWN (he is not found in earlier records, including census). By 1813, RW John Combs and many members of his family were in Clay Co., KY.
