Genealogy - Robert Combs Lineage

 

Robert Combs
Robert Combs was born 9 January 1827 in Kentucky.  On 21 October 1849, he married Edna Elizabeth Campbell (b. 15 September 1832 in Tennessee).  Together they had eight children.  Elizabeth died 15 June 1883.  After Elizabeth's death, Robert married Francis "Famie" Elizabeth Dixon (b. 21 October 1846).  Together they had one child (Ransom).  Robert died 6 June 1902.  Famie died 20 January 1933. Robert, Elizabeth, Jackson "Jack", Famie, and Ransom are all buried in Combs Cemetery.  

Census records indicate that Robert's father was from Virginia and his mother was from North Carolina. It is believed that Robert was the son of Thomas Combs, born in Virginia in 1770.  DNA testing has confirmed that the lineage of Robert Combs ultimately traces back to Jonathan Combs of New Jersey.
