TOOMBS - The Toombs family has a long history in Lincoln County, KY; it started when William Toombs received a land grant in 1798 for 200 acres of land in Lincoln County for fighting in the Revolutionary War.
William's son Ambrose brought his family from Caroline County, VA to Lincoln County in 1810 to take advantage of this land and start a new life. Ambrose lived until 1830 and is resting some where in Lincoln County. (There are records of the settlement of his estate in the Lincoln County Courthouse).
Ambrose had four children 1. William H., 2. Henry, 3. Ambrose W., 4. Dolly. I'm not sure what happened to William H. or Ambrose W. Dolly married David Williams and lived in Lincoln County.
Henry on the other hand married Olive Coulter (1810 - 1905) and took care of his father until his death in 1830. Henry and Olive moved to a part of Lincoln County known as McKinney. They had seven children: 1. Ambrose, 2. William, 3. John, 4. James, 5. Major, 6. Mary, 7. Salley. Ambrose and William went west in 1855. John married Annie Eliza Wilcher. James died fighting in the Civil War. Major married Nancy Benson. Mary married James Snow and Salley married William Davidson. All these records came out of Lincoln County Courthouse.
