Bio and Links
Bio Photo I began studying my genealogy about 2008 when I found a briefcase of my great uncle's that was filled with his personal notes and research about our family history. Combined with a large tub of photos obtained from my grandmother that day, I was able to flesh out many details about my ancestors' lives, back to my great grandparents' generation and beyond. I owe my great uncle Joe a huge dept of gratitude; I couldn't, wouldn't, have taken an interest otherwise...

My branch of the Combs family came to Virginia in the early 1700's, migrated into Kentucky, then Missouri, and a few generations ago settled in California and Oregon. My Great Grandparents were: Murray L Combs, Ella N Sutton, Frank W Nightingil, Anne M Keifer, Charles R Hurst, Manola G Budd, Earl N Weaver, and Blanch May Kibler. I am continuously researching my lines in these families...

Erceil Sellers
Yes, Erceil was my father, and he was a friend of Murray Combs. I think they were together from induction on. They stayed in touch their entire lives. Would love to share stories as Dad kept a diary, have letters & newspapers, and lots of pics. I, too, am the family historian.

relations
I am related to you through Frances A Welch through her O'Bannon family. Was wondering if you had any information about any of the O'Bannon's in your Uncle's suitcase.
Thanks
Melody

Combs section
Hi, if you wanted to e-mail me, I can send you the photo of the Combs section. I believe Mary, John & Joseph are buried in the section where Joseph's wives, Laura & Anne are buried. I took a photo of the lot if you want it. Take care! Whitney. e-mail: pantherandgraysom@yahoo.com

110th-35th Quartermaster
Murray Combs
Thank you so much for a heads up for Mr. Combs. I have added him to my Virtual Cemetery for the 35th Quartermaster. If you are interested I am blogging my father's WWII Story. I found a suitcase of letters which span through their time in WWII. It is my father's story but it is the 35th QM story including the Yoo Hoo incident (http://wp.me/p2eEip-4a). Here is a link to my blog.

Look for the "My Father's Letter's" Category.
I also have over 400 pictures of the 35th QM. If you are interested in viewing them send me an email notsofancynancy916@hotmail.com

RE: John and Mary Combs @ Walnut Grove Cemetery
J. C. is the only thing on the marker. Next time I go to the cemetery, I'll stop by the caretakers office and see if he has any information. I did get a picture. :o)

John and Mary Combs @ Walnut Grove Cemetery
I went to the groundskeeper and John and Mary are buried in Lot 60. I found a foot stone of J. C., next to Anna Scott Coms and Laura Prewitt Combs. Does this help??? :o)
