Back in 2007 there was an obit for a Jettie Evelyn Hatton Combs with her
spouse listed as Robert Combs. At that time I was unable to determine
which Robert Combs, Jettie was married to. Now the mystery has been
solved as there was an obit for Robert in 2009 that I failed to access.
Below are both obits. Odd that Robert was listed in Jettie's obit but
Jettie was not in Robert's obit. Ledford was the s/o Hardin Combs and Mary
Hollon. Hardin was the s/o Woodson Combs and Rachel Bowman.
