(Transcribed by Combs Researcher John Kays who adds *This should read Nancy Marie CREED, not Minnie who was Nancy Combs Creed's daughter. Somehow the person taking down the death information wrote down the incorrect name for the deceased. **The informant, "Mr. LAWSON," was her son-in-law, husband of her daughter, Minnie L. CREED Lawson. See Sullivan Co TN re 1850 & 1860 census enumerations and 01 May 1866 marriage of Nancy Combs to George W. CREED. *** This was originally transcribed as BOOKER, but a re-reading looks more like BOOHER... not unsurprising when the records of Sullivan Co, TN show the name spelled both ways over the decades)
