  Thelbert Combs and Olive Lois Bailey-Combs are my maternal grandparents. As I stated in my mother's eulogy, she was raised by the most loving and caring parents ever to grace this Universe.

Being a bit biased, we all feel Thelbert and Lois Combs raised their six children with the best virtues humanly possible. Every family should benefit from such a strong and honest foundation. We are all very proud of our Combs heritage!


William Thelbert Combs was born in 1907 Elk Horn, Kentucky, but he moved to Marseilles, Illinois with his wife, Olive Lois Bailey. Later his brother Arthur "Red" Combs followed and yet later sister Yvonne and her family moved to Marseilles. Elk Horn is near Campbellsville, in Taylor County, Kentucky.

Our grandmother, Olive Lois Bailey, was born in 1905 in Liberty in Casey County, KY.
