(Combs Researcher Mayann A. Ross)

MAR Notes: John and Mary ASHTON Combs, both Quakers, m 4 Nov 1795, Upper Freehold, Monmouth Co, NJ. Undocumented research states that "Isaac KILLE married Elizabeth COMBS," no date or place given, but ca 1820. The KILLES were longtime Methodists so Elizabeth may have married outside the Quaker religion.
