I am getting lots of experience at offering an apology for a bad URL --
there does appear to be a 'bug' in win95 or in aol mail because the URL I am
inserting is being changed by the time it is appearing on the lists. If this,
offering, with the necessity to copy and paste into your browser, does not
work properly -- then I will not persist to try to send this particular
information to the list because it is causing confusion. *Before transmission
of this message* - each of these three URL's has been copied and pasted into
MS IE3.02 (4-70-1300) and they are correct and real URL's .

Henry INGLE sightings
Before I started this string of errors -- I was interested in any association
of the COMBS, WEBB, INGLE families who went from Lee and Russell Co VA in
about 1795 to near Perry Co KY along Troublesome Creek and the north fork of
the Kentucky River. I believe part of that area is now Breathitt Co KY.
The original message with URL's removed from it --
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 written by a Sewell S. COMBS (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
My thanks for your patience and I promise not to continue to plague the list
with this problem or with this lengthy posting,
The 'us' referred to above includes others researching Henry INGLE family and
several other families of SW VA, TN, KY and westward across the plains states
to WA, OR and CA and specifically includes Karen Ingle email:
