New Orleans. Died: "Cornelius COMBS, b. March 2, 1783; died in New Orleans Feb 9, 1815 from effects of wounds received in Battle of New Orleans."

Notes: This is incorrect as Cornelius COMBS did not die until 10 Oct 1865 in Maryland; however, according to Combs Researcher Linda Bloomfield, who was able to examine the original Combs Bible at the Maryland Historical Society on April 14, 1995, D. Perry COMBS, the missing 13th child omitted from the manuscript, is listed in the Bible as born 10 July 1785, died 9 Feb 1815.
