      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.
