Around 1972 or 1974 I viewed an original copy of the will of Edward Coombes in the Switzerland Coutny Museum at Vevay, Indiana. It was taped between two glasses and I was unable to get a photo or xerox of the document at that time; but I did write it down word for word.
The will of Edward Coombs that I viewed listed as heirs his wife Rebecah and the following 7 children:
First Miriam, 2. Sarah, 3. Alice, 4. Benjamin, 5. Rebecah, 6. Hannah, 7. Andrew and 8. My grandson William.
The will was executed 12 June 1814 with Nelson Coombs, John Coombs and Asa Coombs as witnesses.
Daughter Rebecca married Stillwell Heady and daughter Hannah became the second wife of George Ash. They and their brother Benjamin Coombs all settled in Switzerland county, Indiana where they died. I have found data on Alice "Ailsey"
and also (I think) Sarah on the internet.
