The longest line of descent accurately traceable for Mashpee is in the Coombs family. Two brothers, now living, both substantial citizens of the town, are George R., born in 1843, and Darius, born in 1845. Their father, Oakes A. Coombs, was a son of Isaac and a grandson of Joshua Coombs—all born in Mashpee. George R. engaged in the farming, cranberry and oyster business. He was elected clerk of the district and served until after the town was incorporated. He has been a member of the school committee about three years, also town treasurer. His wife, Elizabeth S., is a sister of William J. Mills of this town. Darius Coombs has been chairman of the selectmen since 1885. He served in this capacity a period of four years, prior to this. He has run the daily mail stage from Mashpee to Sandwich since 1877. He was tax collector from 1871 to 1877. His wife, Martha A. Mye, is the daughter of John and Lydia (Pocknet) Mye.
