Martha E. Combs 1 F W ( Rebecca and Martha are living in HH of Elijah CHAMBERS)

Linda Wiedo Notes: Martha Combs married Frederick Kratzer in Clark Co., KY in 1891. She died in 1906 in Woodford Co. Ky. Martha listed her birthplace as Wolfe Co. but unknown as to where her parents were born. My grandmother, Mary Alice always told us that she was part Cherokee, (most people in Eastern ky. seem to be part Cherokee). Martha is the Marthia Combs living with A. F. (Albert F. Ramy son of Louisa Ramey whose daughter Martha was married to a Combs) in Wolfe Co., Ky in 1880. I can't find any solid record of Martha being related to the Chambers and Ramey families but I think she probably was. Also note: Who is this Rebecca Combs? Could she be the mother of Martha? Is she the same that is listed on the 1860 Morgan Co., Ky Census in the household of Solomon LONG?

1 April 1885 The Hazel Green herald News (Hazel Green, Wolfe County, Ky.) abstracted by Sue Elfving from digitized image of newspaper found at the Library of Congress

"A baby boy about two months old was left on the stiles of Aaron Combs, a respectable citizen of Menifee, on the night of March 24. Mr. Combs when he had discovered it, pursued the mother and overtaking her about five miles from his house, compelled her to return and get it. The mother proved to be a Miss Nancy FUGETT, of Morgan County."

Later, another item appeared wherein the Commonwealth had sued Aaron Combs on a case of bastardy. The defendant was found not guilty but the Commonwealth planned to refile. I found no other entires in this paper for Aaron Combs.

Note: This Aaron would be the son of Richard Combs and Mary BACK.

In Memoriam

Mrs. Jane Combswas born six miles above Hazard courthouse, in Perry County, Kentucky November 25th, 1835. She was the daughter of Washington and Sallie Combs, who emigrated from Virginia at an early date. She was married to William Combs, the present jailor of Breathitt County, August 28th, 1851. The newly wedded pair immediately began housekeeping in Jackson, where the husband had located the previous year, and there they lived in happy union until February 15th, 1886, when death severed the bond that had so long bound them together. Her last illness was protracted through many weary months, during which she was not able to lie down, day or night, her disease being of the heart, and a prostrate position produced a smothering sensation. But a more patient uncomplaining sufferer never felt the power of affliction. Not a murmur escaped her lips. She was the mother of ten children, nine of whom survive her; the other one, the wife of J. H. Hager of the Missouri conference, having died almost 15 years before her mother. They all live in Breathitt county, except the wife of Mr. S. B. Smith, the assessor of Wolfe county. Mrs. Combs was a woman of sterling worth. Her virtues shown in all the relations of life. As a wife, she was gentle, faithful and true. The solemn vow taken at the marriage alter to "obey him, serve him, love him, honor, and keep him, in sickness and in health, in forsaking all others to keep her only unto him so long as they both should live," was sacredly kept. "God bless your precious soul fell upon his ear" from her dying lips. In her family government, she was kind but firm. She endeavored to train her children to practice love and virtue. From their birth to her dying hour, she advised, reproved or rebuked, as occasion required, with all the tenderness and earnestness with a loving, paternal heart. Her children will carry her admonitions to their graves - they can never forget them. Her home was a hotel from the day she began housekeeping until death. This, with the rearing of a large family, made her life one of labor. Industry marked every hour of her existence. Her position as landlady gave her a very extensive acquaintance. She was perhaps more widely known than any other woman in the county. At her home a generous and bountiful hospitality was dispensed. Her friends were always welcomed, while the hungry never went away unfed. She was received into the Methodist Church by the Rev. V. B. Daughertee October 23rd, 1883, but for several years previous she had professed faith in Christ. Her death was a glorious Christian triumph. "Perfect love had cast our all fear" Though light and shadow had been mingled in her life, in death all was brightness and glory. She was laid to rest in the family burying ground, there to wait the resurrection to glory, honor, and immortality. Husband and children, let us meet her. J.J.D.

His 1st wife was Mary ROSE (1850-1873) in which JHC lists a daughter Annabelle. If the census has the right age for Annabelle then she's the daughter from Sewell's 2nd marriage. His 2nd marriage is to Lizzie Ann SWANGO (1853-1893). And his 3rd marriage was to Nancy Catherine AMYX . This marriage is confirmed by Katherine AMYX Combs' 1943 Kentucky Death Certificate, which lists her as the widow of Sewell Combs and the daughter of Jarepha H. & Frances VICKNELL Amyx.
