Excerpted by Combs Researcher Carolyn Wimp from PIONEER SETLERS AND RELATED FAMILIES AT MOUTH OF SALT RIVER (West Point [Hardin Co], Ky), by Richard A.

    Oct 1841 Nelson Co., KY Order Book C (1841-1847), page 21) October term, 1841. On the motion of Asa COOMBS, appointed guardian of George B. COOMBS, Elizabeth COOMBS and Rebecca COOMBS, infant orphans of Edwards W. COOMBS. Butler G. RAMSEY went his bond. (Transcribed by Combs Researcher Carolyn Wimp who adds: In a guardian report the above George B. COOMBS was listed as George Butler COOMBS)

    Notes: George Butler, Elizabeth and Rebecca COOMBS were the children of Edward Wink COOMBS and Mildred MASON who m in Nelson Co in 1829. Asa and Edward Wink COOMBS were brothers, sons of Edward and Rebecca (WINK?) Coombs, and Asa the h/o Nancy WELSH Stewart (also m 1829, Nelson). Asa & Nancy removed to Muhlenberg Co., KY in 1848 and his nephew and niece, George Butler and Rebecca COOMBS, appear in their 1850 census HH. Edward Wink COOMBS appears to be the same who was in the 1850 Spencer Co., KY HH of his sister-in-law, Sarah McKAY, w/o his brother, John (deceased?). Could it be that this guardianship action took place due to the death of Rebecca (WINK?) Coombs? (Note elderly female in HH of Asa COOMBS.) See also the KY death certificate #13485 of John Matthew COOMBS son of George Butler COOMBS & Elizabeth HAM; John M. COOMBS born in Muhlenberg Co., KY and died in Jefferson Co., KY and resided in 1870 in Christian Co., KY .
