Note: Appears to be Lucy Ann Combs RUCKER, the d/o of Jesse Combs whose will was probated in 1848 in Henry Co, MO, and who was identified in said will as daughter Lucy Ann, wife of John RUCKER. She may be the same as L A RUCKER in the 1860 Barry Co, MO census as the children seem to be the same and ages match.

Note: Appears to be same as Isam ADAMS who married Martha Combs, d/o of Jesse Combs of Henry Co, MO. Isam and wife Martha found in the 1850 Cass Co, MO census with children Thomas, Jesse B, Sarah, and James. Perhaps Martha has died and Minerva is a new wife. One George ADAMS of the right age is found living with Elliot and Rebecca RUCKER in the 1870 Madison Co, AR census.
