According to the William F. Coombs Manuscript, following her marriage 15 Feb 1832, Hardin Co KY to Jesse ALEXANDER of Mercer Co KY, Parmelia Combs (d/o Adin and Parmelia WILLIAMS Coombs) removed to "Pike County, Indiana, near the Wabash River, where his wife died, leaving three sons, viz: Samuel, Isaac and Adin. Samuel and Isaac served through the war on the Federal side and returned at the close of the war to their home. They are still living in that part of the state. After the death of his first wife, Jesse Alexander married again, but died shortly thereafter." No dates are given, and there is no indication as to whether any other Combs Family members also removed to Pike Co IN.
