Granville Combs and Margaret Ambugey Family

One of the Combs families found in Taney County was that of Granville Combs and Margaret Amburgey who migrated from Letcher Co, Ky (now Knott Co, Ky). They were in Taney Co by 1890 and left numerous descendants. An oral family history, collected by descendant Huba Hodge Price, and supported by the Matilda WATTS and Mason Combs Family Bible that was brought to Missouri by their son Granville. The Bible provides substantial documented for this family. See the Mason Combs and Matilda WATTS Family Report for more information.

SE Notes: Sue Elfving looking for descendants of this family. Please contact at the Combs-Coombes &c Mailing List)

Oral Family History collected by Combs Researcher Huba Hodge Price:

"My great-grandfather, Granville Combs (s/o Mason & Matilda WATTS Combs), to my mother, daughter of Robert H., Granville's youngest son. My mother grew up with Old Grandpa (Granville) telling her stories and family history. He talked lots about his mom (Matilda WATTS) and his mom's mom whom he said was his Grannie WATTS. Mom said that she asked him why he never talked about his dad, and he replied, "I was small enough when my dad died that I don't remember much about him." In 1890 Granville Combs and wife Margaret (AMBURGEY) Combs moved from Letcher Co., KY to Taney Co., MO. With them was a BLAIR family. Margaret's grandparents Jess "Boss" and Margaret (MAGGARD) Adams had moved to Taney Co, ca 1850. Granville brought the family Bible."

The Family Bible Record contains the names and dates of birth for Matilda, all of hers and Mason's children plus Millie and Ambrose WATTS, both born to Matilda before she married Mason (transcribed by Combs Researcher Huba Hodge Price):
