|Shirley J Kundzicz||Ohio County News Article on Death of George M May|
Sabrina, thank you so much for sending the information about how little Georgie died. It was wonderful of you to take the time to send it and solves a mystery of why my little grand nephew died at such a young age. I love this site and all of the great people who work together and share information they have found.

|Daniel Moran||INFANT HOLCOMB|
Sabrina: Could you confirm for me what this baby's mother's name may have been? I just made a trip into this cemetery for the first time; I only came across one Holcomb. There are graves on the right and left of this woman that are unmarked crosses (normally lost babies). Without these graves being marked with a name, I can't be one hundred percent certain. I took pictures of both graves right and left. Interesting these graves are encased in cement.

Please find out as much info as you can about the location of the stone. I was there today 12/23/2016 and it was tough to find stones. There wasn't an office or anyone on the property and for some reason all of the street/lot signs were painted over in black. I will try again another time.

I would like to contact you since I was a Combs before marriage and have been researching this family from Wilkes Co Ga for many years.

Hi Sabrina, Now I think this Jesse Clay was born in GA. Their is another Jesse that I came across that may have been his grand-father who was from VA. Sorry for the confusion.

|J Davis||RE: Beulah Combs Spacht|
Millie Griffin is my Great Aunt via her father William Henry Griffin, my Great Grandfather, and his first marriage to George Ann Wilhoit. My lineage is via his 2nd marriage with Rebecca Jane Cornwell, so Beulah Beryl Combs is my 1st cousin 1 x removed.
I never personally knew any of theses folks as I was born in 1951 and only heard a few stories about this family when I was very young. I started my research 5 years ago on Ancestry.com and gathered info from other folks along the way and posted photos from my Grandmother's limited collection.
If you look at William Henry Griffin here in Find A Grave, you will see a photo of him and who I believe to be Beulah Combs Spacht sitting next to him. Can you confirm if that is her?
Notes on the back of the photo indicate it was sent to my Grandmother Minnie May Griffin by George Ann (her half sister) and says "Dad with Beulah".
Millie and her half sister Peachie Griffin ran away to Crandon, Forest, Wisconsin when the family left Kentucky around 1904. Millie married Ephraim 16 Jan 1904 and Peachie married Mack Lewis 20 Feb 1904 and he was recorded as widowed in the June 1905 census and later married another.
I don't know if Peachie died or if they were divorced, but I can't find any record of her since that time. I'm assuming Peachie was her true legal name and I don't find her moving to Oregon with Millie and Bum. Do you by chance have any info on her life?
As for Ephraim, besides the story of his involvement in a shooting in W. Virginia before going to Wisconsin, I only know that he spent his life working in saw mills as a laborer and he worked at R&W Lumber Mill in 1940.
One last bit of info; I do have some photos of my Grandmother at the grave site of her father and I believe one other woman in the photo is Millie. I'd be happy to share that photo with you to confirm if it is Millie and her daughter Grace.
My prefered email is email@example.com. If you have access to Ancestry, my family tree is "The Davis Family Tree-3" and these photos are in the profile for Minnie May Griffin.
I must apologize for having more questions than answers for you, but I too would like to fill some gaps in the history of our family!
God bless you,

|Kathryn Draine||RE: Thank you!|
Sabrina, I enjoy taking photographs in Coos Bay when I am visiting my family. They live about a mile from Sunset Memorial Park. In the case of Beulah Spaght, I was able to obtain a copy of her Burial Card which also had her obituary attached. For Ralph Combs, I have a copy of his Burial Card. I will be happy to forward them on to you if you are interested.
Regards, Kathy Draine

|Sharon Williams||Francis 'Frank' Marion White|
This is my 2nd great grandfather. I have been researching the White Family for awhile, but until recently I had my 3rd great grandfather misidentified. He is Sanford M (Marion?) White, born abt 1811 in Kentucky. He married Lucinda Harlan, daughter of Jacob and Sarah Combs Harlan. I know that we must be related and I am wondering if you can offer me any help on Sanford, as I know very little about him before the 1850 census. I have gotten much information about these families from North American Family Histories. Another name that is often mentioned is Bybee/Bibee. I am particularly interested in the Bibee family because my great grandmother, married to William Sanford White is buried by some of the Bibee family in Stroud Cemetery. I cant seem to connect them with the Bybee family in Kentucky. One of the Bybee daughters married Lucinda Harlan's brother, which would connect them to my family (and yours, probably), but I cant directly connect them with the family in Stroud in the 1820's.Sharon Williams firstname.lastname@example.org

Just letting you know that the Memorial for Wm. Carter King where you left your beautiful "Rest in Peave Dove" emblem with your name, Sabrina K. Combs and the date added: April 21, 2013 is, unfortunately a duplicate Memorial having been created Aug 9 2011.
The original was created June 3, 2011. I am still working on a merge but have not found that possibility as yet.
I wanted to let you know in case you might repost your remembrance to the original Memorial page, #70767611.
