The Combs Family of Hazard, KY Updated January 23, 2001
About Our Family Research
My grandmother was born in Hazard, KY in 1933. Her family had been living in the hills of Kentucky for centuries, that is where our family history is. My grandmother was born Herbert Jeanne Combs, daughter to Mary Morris and Herbert Combs. She has 7 other siblings. Our family history dates back to when the small towns of Kentucky were settled; the founder of Hazard is our ancestor. A neighboring town was also settled by an ancestor; the town is called Combs. Four years ago, I returned to Kentucky with my grandmother and her sister to research our family tree, and there I learned who I really am. My ancestors can date back until Pocahontas; her son married into my ancestral family. I, as with my grandmother and great-aunt, are trying to recover as much history about our family as we possibly can.
