Bertie County was established in 1722 from Chowan Co NC (precincts of Albemarle). This county has not yet been researched and only a few records collected thus far.

1790 Bertie Co, NC Census

No Combs


26 Nov 1799 (Bertie Co NC Marriage Records) BRODGON, Mary married Combs, Jesse on 26 Nov 1799 in Bertie County, North Carolina (Extracted from Jordan R. Dodd et al's Early American Marriages: North Carolina to 1825, Bountiful, UT: Precision Indexing Publishers, 19??, Ancestry Library).

Notes: Jesse is not found on either 1800 or 1810 Bertie census. Was he kin to David who follows?


06 Jul 1805 Combs, David married GARRETT, Rachel on 06 Jul 1805 in Bertie County, North Carolina (Extracted from Jordan R. Dodd et al's Early American Marriages: North Carolina to 1825, Bountiful, UT: Precision Indexing Publishers, 19??, Ancestry Library).

Notes: See David Combs of Sumner Co TN (including GARRETTS on same 1830 Census page), Family Bible of David & Rachel Combs (Not yet known if same), and see next.


1810 US Census Index - Bertie Co NC

P. 180:
David COMBES

(Extracted by Combs-Stacy Researcher Barbara Mathews)

Notes: This census record needed badly since it can at least partly "prove" (or disprove, as the case may be) whether this David is the same who was in Sumner Co, TN by 1820.


1820 Bertie Co, NC Census Index

No Combs


20 Dec 1823 ALLEN, Betsey married Combs, Jesse on 20 Dec 1823 in Bertie County, North Carolina (Extracted from Jordan R. Dodd et al's Early American Marriages: North Carolina to 1825, Bountiful, UT: Precision Indexing Publishers, 19??, Ancestry Library).

Notes: Is this Jesse kin to the earlier Jesse? To David of 1810? To the later Jesse and Sarah? (Deeds and wills also need to be checked).
