According to the family report on the LIDE family in Van Zant County, Texas [boarders Kaufman Co.], it seems the following LIDE family members migrated from Mississippi to Texas: James W. LIDE and unknown, Rufus LIDE and Nancy Ann ELizabeth TARVER, and Thomas Hiram LIDE and Ruthie Eram PHILLIPS[dau of Sally COMBS].

“Ruthie's mother, Sally Rupe PHILLIPS married 2nd to Albert COMBS. Five children were born to this union; Edna Melissa, Ethel, and two boys. We do not know their names. Sally RUPE COMBS is buried in Radar Cemetery.”

Birdie Totty McNutt Note: Ruthie's father was Hampton PHILLIPS who died at the age of 26 and is buried in Davis, [Murray County], Oklahoma. Hampton was married to Sarah "Sally" RUPE. After the death of Hampton PHILLIPS, Sally married second to Albert L. COMBS and they had a total of five children born to them. This family is probably the same COMBS family found in Kaufman County in the 1920 Census. The family included Albert L., Ethel, Susie, Charlie, Edna, Cecil, and Hanier.
