Holmes County was established from Coshocton, Wayne and Tuscarawas in 1824-5 (no descendant counties). Local histories offer three different prominent "Holmes" as the county namesake, but unsure which.

Note: All records identified as "Holmes Co OH General Index to Deeds" were extracted from Holmes Co. OH General Index to Deeds, FHL Microfilm 432,025 by Combs Researcher Connie Sheets.


1819 - Holmes Co OH General Index to Deeds. Joseph COMBS from United States, Vol Trans, p. 275, SW Section 35, Twp 18, Range 14

08 March 1819 (Wayne Co. OH) Joseph COMBS of Fayette Co PA was granted land in that part of Wayne which became Holmes Co. in 1824-5 (SW1/4 of Sec 35, Twp. 18, R14)


1822 - Holmes Co OH General Index to Deeds. Joseph COMBS Sr to Joseph COMBS Jr, Vol Trans [Transferred from Wayne Co], p. 275, 160 acres, SW Sec 35, Twp 18, Range 14

11 Jan - 29 Mar 1822 (Wayne Co., OH Recorders Office) Joseph COMBS, Sen. & Ellener his wife to Joseph COMBS, Jr., both of Wayne Co, OH. Indent. Consideration: $200 US. Land: ¼ section, 160 a., of No. 35 Twp. No. 18 of Range 14.

Notes: Joseph COMBS, Sr. (s/o Andrew COMBS I of Tonoloways, d 1774, Loudoun Co, VA) was of Franklin Twp., Fayette Co, PA in 1815 where also was listed (for the first time that year) a Micajah COMBS (b in PA in 1787) who appears to be the same who moved to Montgomery Co OH in 1828-9, and then later moved with his wife Nancy and their son Joseph (born ca 1812 in PA) to Randolph Co IN. The above Joseph COMBS, Sr. was father of Joseph COMBS, Jr. (a.k.a. Joseph B. COMBS), born in New Jersey ca 1794 (where in NJ?), who d in 1857 in Auglaize Co, OH (See 1857 below re estate records). Joseph COMBS, Sr. is found on the 1820 Wayne Co, OH census whereas Micajah remained in Franklin Twp., Fayette Co, PA, where he is found on that 1820 census.

Combs Question: Was Micajah the s/o Joseph COMBS, Sr.?


13 Jul 1823 Tuscarawas Co, OH. Married: John & Susannah RAMMAGE Combs; however, his War of 1812 Pension File states that John Susannah RAMAGE Coombs [sic] were married in Holmes Co, OH, thus likely that they lived in that part of Tuscarawas which became Holmes?

Notes: His Pension File also states that John COOMBS enlisted in the War of 1812 in Fayette Co, PA under Capt. Peter HERTZOG of Springhill Twp., and that he later lived in Marion Co, IN, and died 17 Aug 1876, Clay Co, IN. John has not been found in the 1820 census in Tuscarawas, nor in 1830 in that county, or Holmes or Wayne, or in Marion Co, IN. There is a John COMBS in Marion in 1840, but not yet researched. No pre-1850 John COMBS has been located in Clay as yet.

1827-1834 (Holmes Co OH Loose Papers, extracted by Combs Researcher Bob Combs) The following document refers to justification of an] expense item (#1) on the Final Account Statement of the Administrator of the Estate of Joseph COMBS, Sr. who died in Holmes Co., OH about Feb/Mar 1827.........his son Joseph, Jr. turned in a cost of $45....

The State of Ohio, Holmes Co.
Patrick MCKELVY Administrator of Joseph COMBS dec'd....In the matter of Final Account.
Referred by order of the court of Common Pleas to the undersigned Master Commissioner in Chancery, for the purpose of taking testimony in reference to item No.1 of said Administrators account; being the account of Joseph COMBS(Jr.) against said dec'd.

The deposition of William MATTHEWSON taken in pursuance of said reference on the 22nd day of February 1834, in presence and by consent of said Administrator....The deponant, upon his solemn oath deposith and saith in reference to said account, that he has heard Joseph COMBS, deceased, say that he had to get on by meat and grain by his son Joseph, that his meat had run out, & that if it was not for Joseph, he did not know what he would do. [Do] not know anything about the amount, this conversation took place perhaps two years before the old mans death; knows nothing of the amount received in any one year. I recollect something about the old mans having said there was an agreement between him and his son Joseph about going to Virginia, that he was to pay him, but has forgotten the amount. Recollect of his going, but not the times; does not know that he even went but once during his fathers lifetime. Don't think that the old man was able to make a living, was an old man, and had a hernia. Still ploughed along, & done easy work. Have heard him say that he was not able to plough itself. Lived in the neighborhood when they first moved there; that the first year Joseph hired with his father, afterward he had a share in the crop, but do not know what part. Moved to the county in the winter of 1817. Joseph lived with his father until his death; thinks he died in the spring of 1827. The farm consisted of a quarter section, was not much improved. Don't think the old mans share would support the family. Can't say what the shares were one way or the other. Joseph never worked (away) from the home, and further this deponant saith not.................William MATTHEWSON

The deposition of Samuel DAVENPORT taken as above, & at the same time and place, who upon his oath as aforesaid deposeth and saith that he has heard the old man say that he had received grain from his son, does not know the quantity or when received. Never heard him say that he had received any meat. I am not able to say how they worked the farm; each was to have a share or a part, but what, does not know. They appeared to live and work together; the old man was not able to do much, had disease that must have hindered him from working much. Thinks the farm was owned by the old man up to his death. Believes he went once to Leesburgh in [Loudoun Co] Virginia for money for the use of the old man, but does not know what he was to have for it, or whether anything, nor in what year it was. Believe that he has heard Joseph say that the old man was to have his living off the farm during his lifetime & that Joseph was to have the farm afterward; such also to have heard others say; don't knoweth the old man or not. Have also heard that Joseph was to help to pay part for the farm, the first part probably. Has never heard the old man say that he had done so. Have heard this conversation both here and in Pensylvannia as regards the contract about the land; the conversation about the grain & the old mans support was out here. Knows that Joseph did help him to this county, and to get a start on the land; how much, I do not know. Still thought they worked pretty much together, and further this deponant saith not..............Samuel DAVENPORT

The deposition of James ROBERTS taken touching the same matter & at the same time and place aforesaid, in presence of the Administrator & of the said Joseph COMBS, Jr........
The deponant on his oath deposeth and saith that he thinks that Joseph went on errand over the mountains for the old man. Don't know that he heard the old man say anything about it, neighborhood talk only. Never heard the old man say that he was to allow him anything for the trip, nor anything else on the subject and further this deponant saith not................James ROBERTS

Notes: Joseph COMBS, Sr.'s connection to Loudoun Co, VA remains unknown. In Fayette Co, PA were descendants of a Joseph COMBS, Sr. who d in 1803, and who may have been earlier of Loudoun Co, VA (research in progress); however, this Joseph COMBS, Sr. (d 1803) was of Georges Twp. whereas Joseph COMBS, Sr. of Holmes Co, OH was earlier of Franklin Twp. (research in progress <g>)

Notes: This is John COMBS earlier of Allegany Co, MD (See Below)


Oct. 1832 (Holmes Co., OH Common Pleas Court Journal #1 page #297 October Term AD1832. Indexed: "Heirs of Joseph COMBS [Senior]. "....On motion - personally appeared in open court Washington COMBS aged seventeen years - Mary COMBS aged thirteen years - and made choice of John KENNEDY to be their guardian - which choice is approved by the court on said guardian giving separate bonds in the sum of one hundred dollars each with John LOSURE bail......

"And it appearing proper and necessary - The court appoints the said John KENNEDY guardian to Samuel COMBS aged twelve years - Eliza COMBS aged eleven years - Andrew COMBS aged nine years and (Lusariata?) COMBS aged eight years - It is further ordered by the court that said guardian give separate bonds in the sum of one hundred dollars each - with John LOZIER bail." (Transcribed by Combs Researcher Bob Combs)

BC Notes: These are the children of Joseph COMBS, Sr. & Ellener. They lived with Joseph & Keziah BRADLEY Combs, Jr. from death of their parents in early 1827 till Joseph, Jr. & Keziah left for Mercer Co., OH (later Auglaize Co.) in 1832; when they went to court for guardianship appointment per above.

Combs Questions: Who was John KENNEDY? Was he somehow kin to either Joseph COMBS, Sr. or his wife, Elinor? What ultimately happened to the minor children of Joseph COMBS, Sr. (Seeking to learn if any lived until 1880, and if so, census records needed)?

JMcW Notes: There are Combs in Lawrence Co, IL who appear to be the children of Joseph and Eleanor; specifically, they are:
George Washington Combs (1815-1869) m. abt. 1841 Rebecca Unknown;
Mary Ann Combs (1818-1847) m. 17 Oct 1840* Starkey SUMNER;
Samuel Combs (c1820-1879) m. abt. 1841 Ruth H. Unknown;
Andrew Combs (c1823-aft. 1900) m. 4 Feb 1847* Eunice BAIRD;
Susannah Combs (c1824-~1845) m. 30 Apr 1841* John FISH.

The asterisked marriages took place in Lawrence Co, IL where there was also the marriage of a Murphy Combs (c1822- 1894) m. 13 Apr 1842 Susannah JONES. Murphy was reported variously as b. OH or PA, and his parents were reported as both b. PA. Murphy also named a son Andrew which is the name of the Father of Joseph b. 1745. Thus, Murphy appears as if he might also have been a son of Joseph and his given name just might be a hint that Eleanor was an Eleanor Murphy.

Andrew reports in the 1880 census that he was born in OH and both of his parents were born in PA. Andrew was located at #9-10, ED 197, Bridgeport, Lawrence, IL.

It is also worth noting that George Washington Combs b. 1815 was consistently reported as b. PA in 1850, 1860, and on the 1870 Mortality Schedule. Perhaps also worth noting is that in 1850, Geo. W. Combs was living next to a Rev. Jesse Kennedy, a Baptist Clergyman, as well as next to John Fish who had been the husband of Geo. W's deceased sister, Susannah. (It was a John Kennedy who had been chosen and appointed as the guardian of Joseph and Eleanor's children in 1832.)

Hopewell Presbyterian Cemetery

burial list taken from "Ohio the Crossroad of our Nation Jan/Mar 1961 Vol.II,#1 shows the following (Spellings are as viewed at the cemetery by Bob Combs):

COOMS, Bathsheba 1797-1834
COOMS, John 1844 (age 50)
COOMS, Margaret (wife) 1890 (age 75)

(Abstracted by Combs Researcher Bob Combs)

BC Notes: The earliest readable stone shows 1834, however there are a few similar old stones which cannot be read. The close proximity of this cemetery to land of Joseph & Eleanor COMBS, who both died in 1827, makes it a possible burial location. There are indeed two old stones close by the above other (later) Combs'. There is a cemetery burial record from 1830 on, but not before.

This cemetery is in Ripley Twp., Holmes Co., OH on Rt.77 just off Rt.514 and well kept, considering. This is Amish country today, but most of the COMBS left before these plain people arrived. The above are John COMBS and his wives, Bathsheba DRAKE and Margaret BOLLING.


The following data was extracted from John COOMBS estate and land records in Holmes Co., OH by Combs Researcher Bob Combs from estate papers unless otherwise noted.
