Subject: [COMBS-L] Part 2 - Contested 1866 Election
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit



Who is J. H. COMBS? Based on the 1866 voter registration process, this
individual was judged to be a supporter of the Confederacy. J. H. COMBS
went to the 1866 polling point, which was located in Sibley, Missouri; and
was rejected as a qualified voter. It is also a known fact that J. H. COMBS
was present at the balloting point since the election judges stated that
these are the "names of voters rejected at the election held at Sibley, in
Fort Osage township, on the sixth day of November...one thousand eight
hundred and sixty-six" (24th General Assembly, p. 211). J. H. COMBS is
found to be the fifth name on the list of rejected Fort Osage Township
voters (24th General Assembly, p. 211).

In the 1870 US Census for Fort Osage Township there is a listing for a
James H. COMBS. He is 38 years of age, born in Kentucky and has "farmer"
notated as his occupation. He is married to an Elizabeth, age 32, who was
also born in Kentucky. Three children are listed in the Census - Robert,
age 8, born in Missouri; Mary D., age 5, born in Missouri; and William, age
1, also born in Missouri. This family is residing in Fort Osage Township
(1870 US Census, Missouri. p. 250).

On 30 APR 1866 James H. COMBS purchased approximately 160 acres in Fort
Osage Township from Robert and Mary W. AULL. The legal description is
recorded as the E ˝ SE, Section 4, Township 50 N, Range 31 W; NE NE, Section
9, Township 50 N, Range 31 W; and NW NE, Section 9, Township 50 N, Range 31
W (Jackson County, Missouri. 1866). In 1838
William and Martha "Peggy" COMBS (Atchison County, Missouri) sold 80 areas
located in Lot 1, NW, Section 9, Township 50 N, Range 31 W. (Jackson County,
Missouri. 1838). Lot 1 and Section 4 are contiguous parcels of land.

Who was James H. COMBS parents? In a text titled "Kentucky, A History of
the State," a biography can be found which outlines some of the significant
aspects of Dr. Evan Ennis COMBS:

"Ennis Combs, a native of Virginia, was a physician and surgeon by
profession.... He began practice in Clark County, Ky., but shortly
afterwards removed to Mt. Sterling, where he followed his profession for
eighteen years; then he moved to a farm, on which he resided thirteen years,
and thence went to Independence, Mo, where he re-engaged in the practice for
ten years" (Perrin, p. 777). Dr. Evan Ennis COMBS died 18 JUN 1849 of
cholera (Walker & Wilson, p. 45).

There is some controversy as to the number of children attributed to Dr.
Evan Ennis and Mary S. COMBS. Another source states that they had ten
children, and have been identified as follows (Musser, p. 3)(Combs &
Families of Lafayette County, Missouri, p. 1):

Edward Mark COMBS
Sarah Elizabeth COMBS
Silas Evans COMBS
John Cuthbert COMBS
Fielding Alexander COMBS
Caroline "Dolly" COMBS
James H. COMBS

In a biographical sketch of Silas Evans COMBS it is chronicled that "Ennis
Combs, M.D., was a native of Virginia, and of Scotch-Irish descent, and his
mother, formerly Mary S(ydor) Hinde, was a Kentuckian by birth, and of
English ancestry....In 1842 (Silas E. COMBS)...moved to Missouri and located
in Saline County, where he was engaged in farming till 1851, when he went to
Jackson County. In 1867 he came to Cass County, Missouri" (National
Historical Company - Cass & Bates County, p. 641). Silas COMBS married Miss
Martha Jane PREWITT 30 AUG 1842.

Dr. Evan Ennis COMBS was a slave owner in Missouri. There are two accounts
which specifically illustrate this fact:

Ennis COMBS, resident of Jackson County, Missouri, to Susan E. MATTHEWS,
resident of Jackson County, Missouri; Deed of Gift, dated 7 JUL 1847 - given
Negro girl by the name of Mary, age 9. Husband is recorded as Howard
MATTHEWS (Jackson County Courthouse, Independence, Missouri; Deed Book L, p.

Ennis COMBS, resident of Jackson County, Missouri to Mary A. CALDWELL,
resident of Jackson County, Missouri; Deed of Gift, dated 7 JUL 1847 - given
Negro girl by the name of Jane, age 12. Husband is recorded as Augustine B.
CALDWELL (Jackson County Courthouse, Independence, Missouri; Deed Book L, p.

There are also other illustrations of additional family members having
slaves, while residing in the State of Missouri:

Ennis COMBS (the son of Dr. Evan Ennis COMBS) recorded as owning a fourteen
year old Negro male in 1860 (Lafayette County, Missouri. p. 438A, line 16,
2nd column).

Sallie EVANS (the sister of Dr. Evan Ennis COMBS, she is also the women
that raised Ennis COMBS) recorded as owning several slaves in 1860
(Lafayette County, Missouri. p. 438A, line 17, 2nd column).

Often the real movers and shakers of an era go unnoticed during their
lifetimes. This is certainly true of the groups of anonymous COMBS who
moved in westward settlements. Most COMBS married eventually and raised
children of their own. They lived out their lives bent primarily upon
taming their environments. They attracted little attention individually in
history books. However their power was in the process of transforming their
families into ordinary placid citizens.

There is no doubt that Dr. Ennis COMBS was known in Jackson County,
Missouri. He was probably recognized as a prominent citizen of the
community. Since the family was known for thier politics, James H. COMBS
was most likely placed on the unqualified voters list for Fort Osage
Township due to family association. This list of eleven unqualified voters
was known to have been hung at the polling place in Sibley, since this was
the directions given by those in power in 1866.

Dr. Evan Ennis COMBS unfortunately died when his son James H. COMBS was
between sixteen and seventeen years of age. It's not known what happended
to James H. COMBS during the Civil War, but it is known that he acquired
land after the War in an area which was crawling with Confederate
sympathizers. Fort Osage Township was probably one of the most improtant
stretegic locations south of the Missouri River for covert Confederate units.

The social standing of Midwest citizens after the Civil War varied from
place to place and from time to time. In general the attitude of those in
power was that there were two classes of citizens - they were either War
soiled or victoriously clean, and there was to be no mingling of the two. A
typical viewpoint in the U.S. Congress was that the "Confederate states had
'committed suicide' and should be treated like 'conquered provinces'"
(Garraty, p. 428). As was illustrated in the 1866 Missouri election any
person could make accusations about another individuals politics and then be
restricted from voting. There was no apparent appeal for this unjust
political mechanism (Seyffert, p. 19).

In family research there are significant periods when events have caused
puzzling behaviors. Why did a family change the spelling of their name?
Why did ancestors not talk about their families? Why is documentation hard
to find on family members? Why did the family migrate to this area of the
United States? It is therefore apparent that during the Reconstruction era
the War soiled became either agents in the process of making history or they
functioned as subjects under the weight of oppression and exploitation.
Those fighting the battle of oppression and exploitation changed their
names, migrated to safe havens, and did not discuss their ancestors.

Back to my KENDALL-COMBS self -- I find it interesting that the William
KENDALL here came ten miles and MURDOCK 9 miles. I wonder if this was
round trip or one way, and since there appears to be more than one
William KENDALL floating around the Northern Neck area at the time, it
would be interesting to know what the case says with respect to the
relationships of the men named with respect to the problem at hand.
Carole does anyone have this entire case? If not, I will go after it for
the sake of further learning here. I suspect if this is related to
Stafford County at an earlier time, that the William KENDALL could still
be the one married that married Elizabeth COMBE that is shown in earlier
land transactions as "of Stafford" or possibly his son William who
married Jemima KIRK, although I would not think it as likely. What
would really help would be to know if he signed using the "W" that the
William who married Elizabeth COMBE was known to have signed with in
earlier records. Nonetheless, I will be happy to pursue if no one has
done so or has an interest in pursuing further. Is there an abstract by
Sporacio on this?

I noticed in one posting the term "yeoman", I believe in reference to a
Thomas COMBS. Has that been pursued in any form to determine if there
would be records for someone in such a capacity?

A yeoman is "---someone who is a freeholder of a class below the gentry,
who worked his own land.. or a small landowner." (Websters) Therefore,
I suppose any records would be the same as for larger landholders. Deeds,
taxes, etc. I can't see that there would be seperate categories.

Hi, Denise (and Mike please see below?). Going to answer two questions at
once here:

(1) Yeoman was simply another (old-style) term for farmer (which was also a
"class distinction" much in the same way as Gent. or Merchant).

(2) Re the MURDOCH-RALLS suit, I don't believe it's ever been ordered, and
I do believe that the mileage was probably round-trip.

(3) Before you order it, you might want to email Patricia Junkins to see if
she has more herself than what she posted. My guess is with you re good
chance it was the earlier Wm. KENDALL.

PS to Michael: Nice series on the Combs you just put through. We can
hotlink the section regarding Ennis COMBS to Lafayette Co MO where he d
testate in 1849. Also, another new marriage for us. We had Howard MATTHEWS,
but not first name of Augustine B. CALDWELL. Nice Work!

And now it's back to the web mines <G>
