  • Notes 
    • (Research):V. ELIZABETH (Thomas) b.c. 1814; m. 9 Jan 1833, Wilkes Co, NC to Jehu HENDREN (son of William and Charlotte ELLIS Hendren); d. before 1849 in Indiana.

      9 Jan 1833 Marriage date: Elizabeth Combs & Jehu HENDREN. William HENDREN, Bondsman (Wilkes County, NC Marriages, 1778-1868, Brent Holcomb, Lib: 975.682/H697m)

      Children of Jehu & Elizabeth Combs Hendren:

      William Hicks HENDREN b. 14 Jun 1834; m. 7 Dec 1853 Louisa BATES
      Charlotte Matilda HENDREN b. 19 May 1836, m. 18 Aug 1857 Ambros F. HENDREN
      John Evan HENDREN b. 3 Oct 1838, d. 1 Jul 1862 Civil War
      (Combs Researcher Nancy Tyrrel Theodore)


      E-mail from Ann Krahn (pickles@tsf.net) dated 9/21/2003: One of the reasons some of the Combs/Hendren line may have moved back to NC from Indiana was the fact that Hancock County, where they settled, was not a particularly healthy one. Apparently there was a great deal of illness (I'm not sure what kind) from the miasma. I found it surprising though, that in traveling that far, they would have chosen to settle finally, in a boggy area.


      Letter from William McCray (husband of Jane Evelyn Combs McCray) to Jabez and Nancy Combs Hendren and his brother Jehu dated 10 May 1849:

      "Father Combs [Thomas Hicks Combs] was lade by the side of his Daugter Elizabeth Hendren. I have been waiting for the last three years hoping to receive a letter from you but have not and I expect that you would like to hear how we are agetting along in this world. We was married December the 5 fifth 1844......I have sold the farm that I was aliving on when Jehu was in this part."

      Since the marriage of Jane and William is news, we could surmise that Jehu was gone from Hancock Co. IN by December of 1844.
