Note: Francis H Combs BRASHEARS (b c 1787), d/o of RW Robert Combs and his wife Sarah LINTON?. She is documented by her Fauquier Co. marriage bond (29 Apr 1814) to John W. BISHEAR, an 1825 deed of trust from her father Robert Combs to Henry GLASCOCK, and a Fauquier Co Chancery suit between the heirs of Robert Combs. Her husband John may have been deceased as early as 1825. This family, including Frances, previously found in the 1850 Taylor Co, VA census. Her daughter Mary Elizabeth married Valentine Harrison Surghnor. See also the IL SAR Biography of Valentine Harrison SURGHNOR), b 8 Feb 1847, Pruntytown, Va. [Taylor County, WV]. Frances does not appear with Valentine and Mary in their 1870 census record; therefore, she was probably deceased before 1870.
