Henry INGLE was a friend or close acquaintance to the COMBS family along
Troublesome Creek and the North Fork of the Kentucky River because he is named
in a story
.txt">c512-001.txt at searches.rootsweb.com</A> written by a Sewell S.
(Great Grandson of Harrison COMBS). You will enjoy the story, which includes
Henry borrowing a prized family possession, a still, which they brought in
from Washington Co VA after the peach seeds they planted had done so well.
You may enjoy this letter even if you are not COMBS or INGLE or WEBB.
The COMBS had come to KY in 1795 from Russell and Lee Co Virginia area and
knew where to go in Washington Co VA, much later, to acquire a still.
The 1832 sale of Henry INGLE's 50 acres on Troublesome Creek was witnessed by
John COMBS Jr and Harry (probably Harrison) COMBS and Perry County Clerk Jesse
Harrison went to Kentucky from Russell Co., VA in 1795 and settled on the
North Fork of the Kentucky River. Later Harrison sold his original piece of
land that was located at Big Bottom to his son Mathew and bought another piece
on the Troublesome Creek which is where Henry's 50 acres was located. The
piece of land Harrison had bought on Troublesome Creek was located in Perry
County which is now part of Breathitt County.
So these folks were into KY fairly early.
In the Deed of Henry INGLE's 50 acres to John A. Duff, 1832, Henry did mention
his wife (2nd marriage - or 3rd even??). Henry had married a Polly Webb in
Perry Co in 1824. We don't know if Polly was a widow or otherwise so we are
asking for information about her. And of course we want to know everything
possible about Henry and his neighbors.
Also we don't know if Henry was single after Sarah Hanson INGLE who is
reported (no proof) to have departed sometime after 1810. We don't know the
history for those 14 years from 1810 to 1824 when Henry would have been
between 49 and 63 years or age.
Hope there are some COMBS and some WEBB researchers who can help us get a
Henry's time line: <A
