Taylor County was established in 1847 from Page. The County seat is Bedford.

The family of Joseph N and Nancy BRABHAM of Morgan Co., Ohio migrated to Henry Co, IL, and then settled in Taylor Co., Iowa. Obituaries and county biographies provide a description of their migration westward and also state Joseph N Combs was the grandson of a Revolutionary Soldier which may help to firmly establish his lineage. The Thomas BRABHAM family bible (per Pat O'Dell) provides names and family information (given below)

Notes: Burr Harrison Combs. The biography of son Lloyd Combs that states Burr was married to Laura PAINTER and that he served in the Civil War. This Burr appears to be the son of Joseph N Combs of Morgan Co., OH who is the son of Robert Combs and Nancy SEARS of Loudoun Co, VA and later Morgan Co, OH. Henry Co., IL marriage records show that Burr H Combs married Lou PAINTER on March 10, 1870. The obituary of their son Charles states he was born in Henry Co., Illinois. Other members of this Morgan Co., OH group are also found in the 1870 Henry Co., IL census. Civil War records do show a Burr H Combs as a private in the Ohio 77th Regiment, Co. K.

He may also be the Joseph T Combs who served as a Union soldier in Ohio's 77th Regiment, Co. K along with Burr H Combs. The Henry SHUSTER may be same as who married Nancy, the daughter of Robert Combs and his second wife Lucinda SEALOCK. Henry would be a brother-in-law to [Joseph] Thos Combs.

A valuable farm property pays tribute to the care and labor of Lloyd Combs, who is the owner of one hundred acres of rich and productive land in Mason township, which he purchased in 1908. He is one of Taylor county's native sons, his birth having occurred at North New Market on the 15th of May 1886. His parents were Burr and Laura (Painter) Combs. The former was a representative of a family that came from Pennsylvania to Iowa and his brothers and sisters were Seth, Frank Joe, Nancy, and Sissy Combs. At the time of the Civil war Burr Combs responded to the country's call for troops and did valiant service with the Union army, in defense of the stars and stripes. Having arrived at years of maturity he married Laura Painter, who was one of five children, the others being John, Elda, Lizzie and Sadie Painter. The marriage of Mr. and Mrs. Burr Combs was blessed with eight children, namely: Lloyd, George, Charles, Ned, Osea, Nell, Cora and Lizzie, of which number Cora is now deceased.

At the usual age Lloyd Combs entered the public schools which provided him his educational privileges. He continued his studies until his seventeenth year, and through the periods of vacation assisted his father on the home farm. After putting aside his text-books he continued to aid his father in the development of the fields of the old homestead up to the time of his marriage, which occurred in North New Market on the 22d of March, 1905, the lady of his choice being Miss Glenna Johnson, a daughter of Kelso and Mary (Wisener) Johnson. The latter is a daughter of John Wisener and her brothers and sisters were John, Ernest, Nina, Jean, Sadie, Bertha, Grace and Della Wisener. Mr. and Mrs. Johnson had two daughters and two sons, Mrs. Combs, Luella, Ed and John.

The marriage of Mr. and Mrs. Combs has been blessed with one child, Harold, who is the light and life of the household. In his political views Mr. Combs is a republican, having continuously supported that party since age conferred upon him the right of franchise. He does not seek nor desire office, however, but prefers to concentrate his energies upon his business affairs, which are carefully conducted and are bringing to him substantial success. He carries on general farming and raises all kinds of stock. He is a young man, having but recently passed the twenty-third milestone on life's journey, but his business ability has already made him recognized as one of the representative agriculturists of Mason township.

SE Notes: This Burr H Combs appears to be the son of Joseph N Combs and his wife Nancy of Morgan Co, Ohio, who was possibly the son of Robert Combs and Nancy SEARS, originally of Loudoun Co, VA. Other records seem to indicate Burr's wife was named Lu or some variation thereof.

Extracts from obituary of Joe Tom [aka Joseph Thomas] Combs (9/7/1835-11/2/1923)

Joseph Thomas Combs, son of Nancy J. and J.N. Combs, was born in Loudoun County, Virginia, Sept 7, 1835. When six years old, his parents moved to Morgan County, Ohio…

He married Keziah McDONALD on Jan 22, 1858. They had six children: Mrs Sarah Jane DAVIS, Joseph E. Combs, Mrs John LOWER, a daughter who died in infancy, Francis Marion Combs, and Edward Melvin Combs. The obituary goes on to state that he moved to Henry County, Illinois, in 1863 and then to Iowa in 1876 settling near Guss in Taylor County. Three children died: Joseph, Ellen and Edward. In 1900, he moved to Humeston and cared for his invalid wife until her death in Sept 1910. Since then he lived with his children and grandchildren…

He was well fitted by nature for the pioneer life. He enjoyed very robust health and liked to boast that during eight-six years of his life he had never been under the care of a physician. This he inherited from ancestors who were all long lived. His grandfather was a soldier in the Revolutionary War and was at the surrender of Yorktown. At the age of ninety years his grandfather applied for a pension. One of his uncles lived to be ninety-nine years old. The good health of the deceased was all the more remarkable when we think of the hardships he must have endured as a soldier of the Civil War and as a pioneer"………

He died at the home of his grandson, Thomas Lower in Gravity, at the age of 88 years, 1 month and 25 days. He leaves two children, Mrs A.C. Davis, of Westlaco, Texas, and Frank Combs of Fleming, Colorado. He also leaves an aged sister, Mrs Barman, of Battle Creek, Iowa. He was interned in the Guss Cemetery.

(Source: Obituaries, Taylor Co., Iowa USGenweb/Ancestry)

SE Notes: Researchers of this line should review the obituary in its entirety. It provides a rather impressive description of his character. This obituary states he was a soldier in the Union Army which is corroborated by a record for Joseph T Combs as a private in the 77th Ohio Regiment, Co. K. Perhaps the biggest value is the statement that his grandfather was a soldier in the Revolution and that he applied for a pension at the age of 90 years.

Extracts from obituary of Burr Harrison Combs (12/27/1839-2/25/1918)

Burr Harrison Combs was born in Loudoun County, Virginia, December 27, 1839, and died at his home near New Market, Iowa, February 25, 1918, aged 78 years, 1 month and 29 days.

They had 8 children, 4 sons and 4 daughters. He is survived by Charles, George and Ned Combs also Nellie PULLEN, Lizzie THOMPSON and Osie McALPIN all of New Market, Loyd Combs of Mitchell, S.D., one daughter Cora DARNOLD having died June 19, 1908, also one step son Lee QUIMBY of New Market.

Obituary of Charlie Combs

1951 Charlie Combs, son of Burr and Lucretia Pointer [sic, Painter] Combs, was born Jan 19, 1871, at Woodhull, Henry county, Ill., and died at his home in New Market, Ia, Nov 9, 1951, at the age of 81 years, 9 months and 22 days. He was one of a family of eight children. All survive except one sister, Cora DARNOLD, who died in 1908. At a very early age, Charlie, with his parents, moved from Illinois and settled north of New Market where he grew to manhood. Oct 21, 1891, he was united in marriage to Ida Carolina WIRTH. They established their home on a farm north of New Market where they resided for 37 years, and reared their family of eight children. They then moved to Page county, living near Villisca and Hepburn until four years ago when they retired and moved to their present home in New Market. Oct 21, 1951, Mr and Mrs Combs celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary. For many years, Mr Combs was an outstanding farmer and live stock feeder, operating on an extensive scale. With no thought of recompense, he was always first to volunteer his assistance, or share his possessions with others less fortunate. He led a full and active life until his illness, which lasted about three months. Those who survive are his wife; two daughters, Mrs Bernard Ketchem of Williamson, Ia, and Mrs Arnold BASHOR of New Market; four sons, John and Dewey of New Market, and Harry and Glen of Gravity; 23 grandchildren and 24 great-grandchildren. Two daughters preceded him in death, Pearl and Lena. Also surviving are three brothers, George of Bedford, Lloyd of Kent, Ned of New Market, and three sisters, Mrs Charlie Thompson of Earlham, Mrs Gail Berger, and Nellie Combs of New Market. Funeral services were held at the Methodist Church in New Market at 2 pm Monday Nov 12. Burial was in the Guss cemetery.
