Notes: Zadock Combs was listed as age 58 in the 1870 census. If this is the correct age, he was probably s/o Thomas Combs & Rebecca (Zadock s/o Thomas and Rebecca dies of smallpox while POW during Civil War, d. 8 Mar 1863 at Petersburg), and gs/o William & Jane CARTER Combs of Carroll Co, VA. If, however, the 1870 Census is correct, he would now be 68 years of age, and the Zadock of many marriages of Carroll Co, VA. s/o William & Jane CARTER Combs.
