Note: Pictures of tombstones of NB Combs and Susan provided to Carol Sandler by Clyde Brown. Just behind the left side of N. B.'s marker you can see (hard to read) the stones of James M. Marcum and wife Syntha Combs Marcum (d/o N.B. and Susan). Debbie Lueders notes: This N.B. Combs was Napoleon Bonaparte called "Boney" and was married to Susan Ison. He was the son of Mason Combs and Jenny Richardson. That was his daughter Cynthia or Syntha and her husband James Marcum's markers in the other photo they mentioned. This Campbell cemetery is in Owsley Co, KY. In looking at the complete list of names listed at that cemetery there are a whole bunch of sisters to Syntha buried there as well--Sophia Combs Treadway, Susan Combs Winn, Minerva Combs Crabtree, Martha Combs Moyers and a lot of their husbands too. Not sure if there are head stones there at the cemetery but it would be interesting to check out some time.
