James Coombs was previously married to Ruth Eliza King, born about 1834 in Ohio (probably Gallia Co. where the King's lived before migrating to Boone Co., Indiana), but her death date is unknown at the moment, but was between 1852 after her daughter was born and 1856 before James Coombs remarried to Margaret Miller. I would say she died in Boone Co., Indiana, since James never seemed to have left Boone Co. Ruth Eliza and James had one daughter Mary E. King, born December 20, 1852 Boone Co., Indiana and died February 6, 1907 Clinton Co., Indiana per her death certificate. She married Truman McIntire October 31, 1872 Boone Co., Indiana.
