(Combs Researcher Gloria B. Carter)

Notes: William B. Combs has not been identified, but may have been an East KY Combs based on the other two families in this county:

  1. Nevils YOUNG m pre-1830, Nancy Combs, d/o Jeremiah "Long and Nancy Combs of Perry Co, KY where this couple is found on the 1830 census. In 1850, they were on the Wright Co, MO Census.
  2. John CODY (s/o William & Sinai STACY Cody) m 14 Mar 1809, Clay Co, KY, Elizabeth SUMNER, d/o Samuel and Winnifred Combs Sumner (Hicks). They are found on both the 1810 and 1820 Clay Co, KY census, resided in the early 1820s in Perry Co, KY (formed from Clay and Floyd in 1820-1), then removed to Indiana, where John is found on the 1830 Jackson Co, IN census. John CODY d between 1840 and 1850 when his widow, Elizabeth, appears on the Wright Co, MO census.

1850 Pulaski Co, MO Census Index

72nd District

p. 104; 28 Oct 1850

460/470 Elihu Combs 20, male, laboer, IN married within the year
Polly, 12, female MO married within the year

Notes: Could this be the same as the Elihu and Polly found in the 1850 Laclede Co, MO census household of William B Combs? Laclede was established in 1849 from Pulaski, Wright, and Camden. The original census image does state Polly was 12. If the same, she is in William's 1850 Laclede household as age 20 where the markings for married within the year are confusing.
