I am embarrassed to say I cannot answer your question. I thought I had the record for this information, but I do not. If I find it, I will let you know. i do not usually add anything for which I do not have a record in my material. or one that can be found by others.

Hello. The marriage date appears on the marker...

Sorry Janet , just wanted to publicly admit my mistake in my previous public message to you.
John Culture did have a son named Dant. He married Melvina Young . Both are buried in Hamblin Cemetery.
I was thinking of my great grandfather John Specklebuck.
WWheni wrote that.
When you start contributing, you will see how easy it is to make mistakes. I always correct mine.
That's why I didn't do this by e mail.
Good luck on searching your family history .
P.s. Looks like Brenda K. Was right .😀

Janet , it's okay. Pierce Dant Hamblin is probably the one listed into DAR. I read he went by Dant.
I have him listed as 1756-1843. His brother Job was also in the Revolutionary War. Listed years 1762-1833.
I do know there are two more Dant Hamblins . One is buried at Hamblin Cemetery , the other is buried at Rocksprings
Job Hamblen ' s spelling is different than that of his parents and sibblings. I've seen that a lot. My theory on that is ppl didn't have a lot of education , and a lot of ppl couldn't read or write to tell ppl the correct spelling .
Do I think ppl like Census takers , etc. just listed the names as they sounded.
John Culture is my great great grandfather. I think that Dant should have been a Daniel. Which was the name of John Culture's father. His mother of course was Barbara Monhollen Hamblin.
I personally have no listing of a Dant as son of John Culture Hamblin.
I do strive to be as accurate as possible . Family history is a passion of mine.
It is easy to make mistakes , it seems everyone named their kids after each other even if they had the same last name. For example there are two Julia Hills . One is the daughter of my great great grandfather , and his first wife . And a Gus Hill had a daughter named Julia . I've seen him mistakenly listed as the father of Julia Hill Karr buried in Locust Grove Cemetery.
I have her death certificate, and she is the one listed in the cemetery with the father listed as Gus instead of her father , John Thomas Hill.
Seriously thinking about posting that death certificate on her memorial. But I wouldn't ask him how accurate does he think his information is. That sounded confrontation in writing to me.
Which may have not been the way you intended it .
I made the same mistake on my own records. But in a way it was correct , Gus did have a Julia. I changed it after I discovered the mistake on my own records.
As a whole I do believe my records are pretty accurate.
There is a lot of wrong information on a lot of sites, or incomplete information where they don't list all of the children's or all of the wives.
For example my great grandmother was a second wife and she had one child, my grandmother . Which isn't listed on the majority of the sites. So I gave that information to my newly found cousins who are big into family history. So they can add the info to the family tree.now it's on a few sites. also my great great grandmother 's daughter Almeda Catherine Hill isn't always listed as a child of her parents on many sites.
There reasoni did that wasn't to correct someone. Nut because not many ppl know it. And I want future generations to know they existed , so they will have the complete family history not just bits and pieces.
I personally love having family members listed on find a grave. It at least gives you some names and you can start searching on your own from there.

Its just a matter of me linking them up, all done as best as I can.
|Mike & Bushy Hartman||RE: Combs|
Richard I think from the 1840 census was married prior to Ann that woman I have as Coffee and Ann was Hill.
|Mike & Bushy Hartman||RE: Combs|
Yes I have also seen Hill. The only place I saw the Crosby children with the surname Combs is in the census. Are you using Ancestry my tree it up there under Schumacher family. I wish they made it so you could use a members name to find their trees instead of tree titles.
I have Richard married to a Coffee and having Charles S. Combs b. 1840-1916 and Hiram Guy Combs b. 1840
then a second spouse unnamed
Alice Combs b. 1844-1903, who married Valentine Mang (image of marriage record on there.)
Mary Combs. b. 1845
Erastus Seymour Combs b. 1850
