  • Determine the “genetic profile” for this branch of COMBS. Done
  • Establish the “lineage genetic profile” of the ancestry for this line. Done
  • Determine how this line connects to Joseph COOMBE of the Tonoloways.
  • Note: GEN #5 of John Joseph Combs was considered to have ties to Fauquier Co, VA by Opal Combs (now deceased of Oregon) and Hazel Groves Hansrote, a pre-eminent genealogist from Allegany County, MD. While this assumption could have been a result of confusion with the Joseph I COMBS line of Stafford County, VA, validation of the Fauquier Co. VA reference lacks documentation thusfar.
