    Notes: Alice "Ailsy" (JOLLY, widow of John COMBS?) is back, as is Rebecca (WINK(?), widow of Edward, Jr.). John COMBS w/100 acres on Ashes Creek in 1807 appears to be the same who is now shown with 100 acres on Simpson's Creek (same land?). Either William Sr. has died, with William Jr. administering his estate (down to 1938.25 from 2000 acres), or the"Jr." is in error. See 1813 land deeds of gift from Wm., Sr. to his children. (According to other, unsubstantiated, sources, William Sr. did not die until 1824). Enoch's 67 acres is now 65.

    Notes: Anna may be the same Nancy/Anna, widow of David died 1801, with Nancy being one of their two children. Since Anna "Nancy" is not on 1810 census, she is possibly "hiding" in HH of a SIMPSON (if, in fact, she is the Nancy SIMPSON who married David in 1789). Seeking to identify Lewis KENDALL.

    Notes: John COMBS of the 100-acre Ashes or Simpson's Creek appears to be the same as John of Jack's Creek. Charles of Buffalo Creek appears to be the same as the Charles who follows (brother-in-law of Joseph-Josiah SMITH. Either William Sr. is deceased, or he has effected a distribution of his estate. Given that he is not found on the 1810 census as a Head of Household, or on the 1813 tax list, he may have died in 1806, the year that Wm. Jr. is listed with his land. In 1813, he was listed with 1933 acres. The above acreage equals:

    Stewart's Creek = 1500 acres total. Cox's Creek = 405 total for a grand total of 1905 (implying that daughters received no part of estate, or that the Cox's Creek was separate land?*). The distributions per individual appear to have been: William, 503 acres; Enoch, 372. 5acres; Wm. Jr., 322.5; Thomas A., 305 acres; Walter A. P., 300 acres; John, 100 acres. NOTE: See disposition of this land of William's land in 1813-1816 when he gives deeds of gifts to his children.

    Notes: Samuel Combs I of Loudoun VA and Chaplin's Creek, Nelson Co., KY, has died (between 1814 and 1816), and his 2nd wife Elizabeth (earlier widow of Thomas WILLIAMS), is now listed. Is it significant that neither appears on the 1815 Nelson KY tax lists? No further record of Elizabeth or the land on Chaplin's Creek, is found in Nelson Co., KY, but could she have been same whom John MILLIGAN married above? Also note that Edward's and Nelson's land is now shown as Ash's Creek, and that John's land has increased by 50 acres.

    Notes: The above deposition was by Major Edward COOMBS I of Tonoloways (husband of Rebecca STILLWELL). His reference to "uncle John COMES" appears to indicate that Andrew HYNES' mother was sister to Major Edward and his brother, John COMBS I of Tonoloways (husband of Alice JOLLY). The complainant would thus have been John COMBS II, son of John & Alice JOLLY Combs I. See also 1809 Nelson deposition whereby Major Edward refers to his brother, John COMBS.
